1  Resident Creators / Mod Requests / Casting Spells and Making Potions Fun! on: September 03, 2008, 08:16:06 am
Yay Squinge!  :blob6:

I would like a request a mod for witches.  Currently doing witchy things such as working over the cauldron and casting spells are not fun and feature a huge drop in comfort.  Really doesn't make sense to me because witches should enjoy being witches I would think. Smiley

So nice to see your smiling Dexter face once again!
2  Simmers' Paradise / Sims Stories / The Wellgate Legacy - Chapter 13 Up 1-9-08 on: July 17, 2008, 05:10:36 pm
Hello one and all! :blob6:

The other day I was idly surfing the web, looking for nothing in particular and I came across the legacy website.  I've seen it before, naturally but on that day it was particularly interesting.  Seeing that I had just cleaned out my download folder I thought it was a perfect time to give it a go. :angel:  One of the handicaps was to write the story as it goes.  Posting it here seemed the right choice because it's not like I'm going to upload it to the exchange.  It's just a bit fluff, you understand.

Following the rules, I have absolutely no mods installed in my game and will only be using Maxis furnishings.  I also will not manipulate anything into happening in the course of this.  Just happily go where the game wishes to go.  I decided when taking my pictures not to worry so much about the sky, thought bubbles, and the plumbob or what it's called.  This is after all a sim game and nothing wrong with showing those from time to time I don't think.

So I hope you enjoy.  Oh and one more disclaimer.  The founder and main sim of this legacy was not made by me.  The talented Liv created him and I won him in a contest. Smiley  I changed nothing about him except for his hair.

Chapter One



Introducing Owen and Scamp.  Owen is a fortune sim with a secondary aspiration of knowledge.  Scamp is a hyperactive dingbat of a doggy with the aspiration to one day rule the world.  So this is where we start.



Hello there.  My name is Owen.  This is my family tree.  An orange tree.  Um, I don't have much else to say.  I just moved in here and I'm hoping to make a successful life.  See my shirt.  Knight and shinning armour?  That's what I am, now I just have to wait for the ladies to realize it.



Dig, dig, yay.  Ohhh dig, dig, dig.  I's like to dig.  Make my home underground.  Be an underground doggy.  Yeah yeah.



Now Scramp we just got here, we don't want to leave a bad impression.  I'm counting on you to help my score with the chicks, remember.



Oh that's a good boy.  He's a good boy.  We are going to do great together.  I just know it!



Amazing I have just been here five minutes and already ladies are stopping by my house.  I knew I was a stud!



On the other hand, what is with the modest threads?  Why hide a beautiful body.  If you've got it, show it off.  That's what I always say.  She is probably going to hand me a religious pamphlets any moment now.   Maybe I should watch myself before greeting random strangers.



Or maybe not.  Another five minutes passed and now my house is full of strangers.  Now I am going to have so many best friends!  I rule, completely.



Hey there you.  Now this is the kind of outfit I like.  The non outfit, actually.  I think everyone should walk around wearing see-through shirts, don't you?  Especially girls like you that wear see-through shirts and red bras.  Hubba, hubba.

See Through Shirt Girl: Oh I like your voice.  If only I don't have to open my eyes and look at you.  You or this hideously ugly blue room.  Than I'm all good.



See Through Shirt Girl: Wow, that guy over there is wearing a long black trench coat.  There couldn't possibly be anything creepier then wearing so much leather on such a hot day in doors.  Maybe he would like to go out sometime.

Own: Well back to the drawing board for me.



Creepy Black Trench Coat Guy:  Hey boy want to play! *guttural laugh*

Scamp: ... Um, really not so much ...



I'm just going to sit here hold my sandwich pretending to eat. You can eat that's fine.  I'm just going to sit here and look at your shirt, err sports bra, uh never mind.  Actually I'm not going to look anywhere at all.  That's the ticket.  Tasty boo ... oh I mean lunch meat, yeah just lunch meat.



Chew, chew. Bite, bite, gnaw, gnaw.  Mmmm, yummy couch tastes good!  Silly humans, silly human dating.  Nothing is better than tasty couch.  Yum!



First day successfully done and no one died!  Always a bonus.  I think this legacy thing just might work out. Cheesy
3  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Cheat to help more sims visit community lots on: July 16, 2008, 10:00:46 am
Hey there,

I didn't put this in the WCIF section because I am pretty sure there is a ingame cheat for this but I just don't know what it is.  Wiki doesn't either actually, but I know I've seen it.

Basically my computer isn't all that great so when I installed the game it decided to only allow 2 sims at a time to be at a community lot.  That isn't much fun when you visit a community lot and only one other sim shows up, especially when you are looking to date and meet new people.

I think there is a cheat that allows more random sims to come to community lots.  One that needs to be entered at the neighbourhood screen.  Anyone know?  I know it might slow down my game, but I'm willing to take that chance.

I'm not looking for a mod by the way.  I'm trying to go mod free for my legacy.

Thanks for any help. Smiley
4  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Making An Uploaded Sim Base Game Compatible on: June 10, 2008, 09:14:08 am
Hello,

I'm having a bit of a situation and I was hoping someone on here might help me.  I uploaded a couple of sims for a contest on this site.  It was my thought to share the sims in order to make the game more interesting.

The problem is, a few people are unable to download my sims.  I have all of the EP's and the stuff packs.  What can I say?  I'm a completest.  Other people have only the base game or just an EP or two.

So I would like to find a way to make my sims base game compatible, as hopefully that's the problem.  Some other people were able to download my sims, so I know it's not a problem with the files.

I used the Freetime Bodyshop to package them.  Would it help if I stripped them of the CC and used the basic Bodyshop to package them?

I've never done this before so any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks. Smiley
5  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Moving A Toddler From College to Home on: March 21, 2008, 10:58:32 am
I asked this on GOS, but since it is still unresolved I thought maybe I would try here as well.

I really hope that someone can help me.  Undecided

For a long time I had InTeen installed on my game.  I had fun getting teenagers and young adults in college pregnant and having no problems.  When FreeTime came out I uninstalled all my hacks including InTeen.  The problem was I had a young adult in a college dorm, Heather, who was pregnant at the time.  Well I figured that she just wouldn't be pregnant any more because I had longer had InTeen running.  I was wrong, she still was.  Eventually gave birth to a baby girl named Amanda, cutie with brown hair and blue eyes.  Since Heather was still in school, I keep the baby out in a crib outside her room and Heather did her best to be a Mommy and a student.

Then Heather completed Senior year and had her graduation party.  She moved yet, but guess what.  She left poor Amanda, now a toddler, behind.  I didn't know what to do, so I moved Amanda out with a hack but now she is in the student bin.  I want to move her back to the neighbourhood with her mother.

So in other words, I want to move Amanda the toddler out of college and to the neighbourhood.   I don't want to just delete Amanda because you know she's cute and all.

Someone on GOS suggested that I move her back in to the dorm and then age her up and move her up that way.

Well bad news.  Sad  I did age her up using TwoJeff's mini-insimenator thing.  

This is how she turned out as a teenager.



She is actually pretty, which is much better then I expected.

I tried to age her up to an adult, but for some reason I was unable to.  I would get the animations and sound effects, but the bar on her ageing panel would go back down to teenager. Sad

I clicked on the phone, and there was no option to move back to the neighbourhood.  What do I do now?    

Thank you for reading.  This is really frustrating me.  I hope someone can help.  I just want her back in the neighbourhood.

6  Simmers' Paradise / Content Creation & Recoloring Help / Strange Problem With My Outfits on: January 22, 2008, 01:50:48 pm
Hello,

I recently completely emptied out my download folder (except for my defaults) and restarted my game.  I was simply tired of all the bugs I had from having so many hacks and that.

The problem is yesterday I went to download the toddler clothing I had made and posted to this site.  I downloaded and placed in my Download folder.  I went into bodyshop to play around a bit and they were not there!!  

So I placed them in my SavedSims folder and reloaded Body Shop and still they are not there!

Is there something wrong with the way I originally uploaded them?  Is everyone having this problem or is it just me?  Over 80 have downloaded them, if there was a problem someone would have said?  Other CC I have downloaded works just fine.

What can I do to have those outfits show in bodyshop and the game?  Hopefully there is something I can do.  It is very frustrating placing them in my download folder and not having them show.

Please help.  The links are in my signature. Thank you.
7  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Resetting my game on: January 18, 2008, 08:47:17 pm
Hello there,

I have offically had it.  Enough is enough, my game has more bugs then a 300 year old plague victim.  I've taken out all my hacks and still I have nothing but problems.  There is a problem deep in the code that I can not figure out.  For example today time stopped because I had a plantsim on the lot.  I have no hacks relating to plantsims so why did that happen?  That is just one example, nothing is working right so I've decided just to reset my game and start over.  This time being careful with my downloads and especially my hacks.

The thing is I was curious about the quickest way to do this.  Will just simply deleting certain folders work?  Or do I really have to uninstall each and every EP in Windows and then reinstall with the disks?

I want it back to the way Maxis intended CC and hack free  and absolutely no strange weird bugs.

Thank you for your answer
8  Retired Creators / Guest Recolors / Request: Pastel Onesies with BlooM's Real Feet on: January 13, 2008, 03:49:27 pm
This is the fulfilment of a request by Grandmarmalade for my onesies in pastel colours.

White, Yellow and Green are for both boys and girls.  Pink is for girls and Blue is for boys.  

Once again these come in both solid colours and ones with a little something extra.  They can be used for either bedtime or everyday or both.  My favourite is the frog prince. :tongue3:

Please enjoy!  Please leave feedback, as it is something easy to do and makes a whole lot of difference.

This is my second instalment in my toddler real feet project.  This was very challenging to me, but I'm pleased with the way they turned out.  

Please vote in the poll and leave feedback!  Even just saying something short and simple is a wonderful thing to me. Cheesy

Long John's Function as both everyday and pajamas.  Pink is for girls only and Blue for boys, of course. Wink  Comes with a zipper for easy diaper changes, in theory. Wink









Also accepted and wanted is constructive criticism.  I am just learning and I do want to improve.

10  Retired Creators / Guest Recolors / Everyday Onesies for Toddlers with BlooM's Real Feet on: January 09, 2008, 03:35:51 pm
I love toddlers in my game, adorable little mischief makers.  The problem is they are all born horribly deformed with all their toesies stuck together.  Thankfully BlooM came along and created his amazing 3-D feet.  :king:

BlooM also recently helped me out of a skinning jam and so these are for him! :love9:

Recommended: BlooM's mesh from Here.

Base Texture by HystericalParoxysm

Can be worn by either male or female as comfortable everyday clothing.  I can make them for sleeping as well if people want.  They come both as solid colours or with an icon.  The back matches the front on both.






Please enjoy!  Also please comment. Wink  Oh and don't upload to paysites or claim as your own, please.  So that's all folks! :tongue3:
11  Simmers' Paradise / Content Creation & Recoloring Help / Alpha Editing! PLEASE HELP on: January 06, 2008, 03:14:42 pm
Hi,

I've reached the end of my rope.  Normally I can figure out how things work, but not this time.  Please help me, I really don't know where else to turn.

To start out with I export the mesh from Body Shop

For this project I'm using the SimChic boyshorts mesh



I open photoshop CS2.  body~stdMatBaseTextureName_alpha.bmp is there but body~stdMatBaseTextureName.bmp is blank.



I have the texture ready to go, so I paste it to the blank texture file.  Then I merge the layers together.



Then I paste the alpha file onto texture file.  According to the tutorials I have read, I should get rid of white areas



I then flatten the image and save it and go and check on things in bodyshop. It look decent, but of course the white of the alpha is still showing.



So I go back to photoshop and unflatten the image.  In the alpha layer, I delete the white parts that I do not need.



But yet when I save and check bodyshop, it is the same as before.



I'm not sure where I am going wrong.  I've tried to many different things but nothing seems to work.  I know that it is possible to edit the alpha, as I've done it accidentally before, but I can't do it again.

If someone could point me to a tutorial or just tell me the best way to edit the alpha I would be so completely grateful.  I've been working on this on and off for almost 48 hours now.  I know it's not that good, but I am just starting out.  

Sorry about the watermark on the pictures, ignore it, it is of no consequence.

Please help.  Thank you. :worship:
12  Simmers' Paradise / Content Creation & Recoloring Help / WCIF Tutorial for BlooM's sexy feet on: January 01, 2008, 09:24:43 pm
Hello all,

I love BlooM's sexy feet mesh.  The problem I am having is that I have many clothes that used a full body mesh and those wonderful feet do not show up.

I am sure there is a way to get BlooM's sexy feet on meshes that don't currently have it.  What I am not sure of is how to do it.

I have the newest beta version of SimPe, I know a bit about Body Shop and Photoshop.  

Please help me. I have many wonderful clothes that I do not want to throw out just because they don't have the feet I require.

This must be some way around this.  Thank you so much! Cheesy
13  Sims 2 Community Downloads / Misses / Sweeney Todd UnTucked Tee-Shirts by Request on: January 01, 2008, 03:20:34 pm

14  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Unable to fulfill wants on: December 02, 2007, 09:59:24 pm
Hi there,

Yes this is yet another problem in a long list of Bon Voyage problems.

My sims are for some reason unable to fulfill there vacation based wants.

For everyone's convenience I've illustrated my point.



My sim has meant a local outside his hotel!  As you can see in his wants he would like to learn a local gesture.



The local pounds her chest (ouch) while he looks on



He imitates her, to her delight



Then suddenly without warning they give a little jump, stop interacting and his want is still unfulfilled.  Sad  

I had the same problem when I meet bigfoot.  Every time I tried to talk to him my sim would say a few words and then they would stop interacting and just  jump apart.

If anyone else had this problem and found a solution, then I would be thrilled.  Or theories are good to. Smiley

Thank you,
Erica

Hi there! :wave:

I made this sim quite a while ago.  Even though she's not a classic beauty, I feel that she does look a lot like me.  I'm currently using her with a slightly different hairstyle in Imaginary Friends Contest hosted by the wonderful Miss Doh, Here!

I'm a Taurus and I usually play myself with a pleasure aspiration using red hair and creativity as turn-ons.  You of course can play me however you wish! Cheesy

Please enjoy and thank you for looking! :blob6:
