Thanks, I don't know why I didn't remember all of that earlier but I think it's because I'm nearing fifty-four. Getting old and senile here, methinks. How've ya been?

Thank you very much! It's so hard to find cute tops for the elder females, I swear!

I download stuff from there if it meets MY standards but sad to say, it takes months for me to get around to doing a downloading spree from that site. I agree, once upon a time there was scads of great stuff to get and it was a lot of fun to go on those raids, but now, not so much. I've never bothered trying to submit anything of my own, don't feel like getting a rejection. Instead, I just uploaded it all to my Mediafire account. It's there in case my computer ever decides to take a dump again. I'm getting back into making recolours myself, so I feel what you're going through. Before Sailfin took her Sims 2 site down, I uploaded there. I'd upload here but have lost my screenshots, don't feel like doing them all over again and my Photo Bucket account got hacked, so meh.

So far, so good. Only ONE blue thumbnail in the content catalog and I can honestly live with. I did go the route of deleting the thumbnail folder and that solved the problem. Then, I had another problem: bloated download folder. Didn't slow me down for long as I got a new copy of the Compressorizer or however ya spell the blasted thing and took the whole day yesterday to go through my download folder. Five gigs slimmer and game running slick again. Also figured out SimPE once again so making my own stuff for the game. Things are looking up. Thanks for the help and suggestions! (And it would really help if my fingers would stop making so many stupid mistakes when I'm tryin to type but I blame the rubbing alcohol for that. Go home, finger tips, you're DRUNK!!!)

I'm weird when I have CC, I tend to make one folder for furniture, for instance, and then put the master meshes in one folder and the recolours floating in that furniture folder. With hair, for another example, I have a master mesh file and then the recolours either float freely or, if I have a bunch done by the same creator such as Trapping or Nouk, well, they have their very own folder. I don't download recolours/slaves until I make sure I have the masters because that just crashes my game outright. The items are just fine in game, they show up perfectly well it's just that I cannot stand that weird neon powder blue in the catalog. UGH! As a rule, I also tend to have folders for creators and they each have master mesh files with the recolours floating in the main; like Windkeeper's windows have the master mesh folder and then the recolours outside of that in the main folder. Sounds weird but it's working so far. Right now, the content doing it was created by Raynuss (I think that's the name, I'll check the spelling in a bit) and it was recoloured by Red Sonja of MTS and Plumb Bob Keep, it's medieval stuff because I've been playing a themed hood lately... Of course, I could always folder the recolours and let the master meshes out free into the respective folders, it could be worth a try. I'd thought about investigating the issue with SimPE but realized that isn't the way to go, I've used Delphy's download organizer thingie and if I could get Clean Installer to actually install on Ralphie, I'd try it. Sadly, every time I try to install that program, it screams there is already a previous version and I need to remove it. Uh, no, been into the program files with a fine tooth comb and it ain't there. Years ago, I deleted it when I uninstalled everything Sim related and I don't want to mess anything up. I've checked registry files, you name it, it ain't on there but the program still won't install so I do it the old fashioned way. *sigh* I really wish so many of the programmers like Mootilda hadn't passed away, but what can you do? At least Numenor and Quaxi are back, for now, at least. And who knows, now that I've got SimPE figured out again for recolouring, I might start releasing some of my stuff for download again, I put a buttload of it up on Mediafire last week. That way, if it ever gets lost again, I can retrieve it. That's neither here nor there, though. I've written down your advice and will give it a go in the next couple of days, going back to the sites I got the stuff from to see if I missed anything and reinstalling it. Seems like the old days are back for me, download on one computer, save it to memory stick, put it onto game computer, unzip, throw it in and play. I'm hopeless but at least I'm not bored with the game any more! Wink Thanks, I'll let you know how it went and I will try to get some pics with Fraps, may even try to recover my Photobucket account back so I can post pics... Or archive them and put them onto my Mediafire and post the link... I think we're allowed to do that, right? I really need to read the rules on that one again. I'm old, past age fifty now! Cheesy
6  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Blue thumbnails in the buy mode/build mode catalog... on: April 07, 2018, 06:51:50 pm
Pretty much what it says in the title. I've got the meshes needed, it's just that the items show up that sick shade of blue in my buy/build mode catalog and it's driving me absolutely insane. Someone told me to delete the thumbnail folder and it will regenerate a new one when I restart the game but I hesitate to do this because it sounds kind of drastic. (That and I just now got all sixteen gigs of CC to play nicely together for the most part and I don't want to have to uninstall and then reinstall everything I have.) My husband was an absolute darling and got the EPs and stuff packs that I've been missing for years, and while it wouldn't take much time to reinstall, I'd then have to start adding CC back to the game folder by folder. My folders have subfolders to the the point of a friend telling me I have an OCD about my content. (If only I could do that with my house, you know?) I'm still using the same compute I had way back when I joined InSim, if that tells you much. Dell Inspiron, circa 2008, tower, and it runs XP. Ralphie is an old boy but he's still running well. I no longer connect to the net with him, just download on my newfangled laptop which runs Windows 8.1 and transfer over with a memory stick. Anyhoo, if anyone else has had this problem and fixed it, could you please share your solutions with me or at least allay my fears about the thumbnail folder deletion, I'd be very very grateful for the time you spend replying. Thank you!!!  ( Chainsaw go vroom! This is me when I see those crappy blue images!)

I don't know how many of you remember Sunni Designs for Sims 2, but she was awesome in the things she did. Sadly, today she passed away. For those of you who are members of Plumb Bob Keep and friends of hers, I extend my sympathies to you during this time. For those of you who have no idea of what I am talking about, suffice to say she was a sweet and talented lady who will be missed greatly. Personally, for me, she caused massive swellings of my download folder and my game would not have been as fun as it is without her. Fly with the angels, dear lady, and know that your friends will miss you, as will anyone who ever visited your site and the Keep. True, I just lurk there and download, but I've enjoyed a good deal of the content which continues to be put out for the game I still play. If you enjoy the medieval themed content, then Plumb Bob Keep is a good place to begin.

My kid has seen ONE Jay and Silent Bob movie and that was Dogma... He really loved watching Alan Rickman in that movie. If it's got Rickman, he'll watch it. On Sunday, though, we watched the live action version of Beauty and the Beast.

Nope, it was for sure a bunny. Bunnies leave smaller poo-nuggets than Squinges according to the wild life handbooks.

Got to see Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2, loved it. Managed to catch most of the new Pirates of the Caribbean, Dead men Tell no Tales, and it was a pretty decent outing. Right now, my brain is still recovering from the husband's all week-end long binge watch of the TV series Get Smart. The movie they made out of it with Steve Carrel and Anne Hathaway was a decent watch. Debating on whether or not to let the boy watch the newest Jeff Dunham, though. I really don't need him repeating more of Peanut and Achmed at school than he already does; even if he IS in eighth grade they still have limits as to what they'll tolerate when it comes to kids cursing... Last thing he needs is suspended. Hell, the last thing I need is for him to get suspended, what am I talking about??
