466  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Discussion / Discoveries on: August 26, 2007, 03:03:19 pm
I've been playing for about a month (base game) and I made a major discovery-how to order groceries! OMG, I didn't notice the ordering thingie had a moveable bar! Ok, blame my age! I nearly let my poor simmies starve to death!
Hey, it's the little things that keep one learning.
I just didn't notice the bar that closely.

The argument about EULA is mind-boggling, to say the least. Maxis is trying, I think, to absent themselves from being responsible for any CC being installed, having players complain about it to them, and then not being responsible for the content of the paysites themselves.
Which makes sense-why should Maxis be compelled to take charge over hundreds of paysites which are the property of other people? that would be a headache and a half!
My personal complaint about paysites is their sheer ability to charge people to download things that may or may not work, and then claim they're doing it for little or no fees, to complain of poverty. I don't know what bandwidth costs now, (and never did, actually) but some of the claims saying that some paysites will go out of business if you don't donate yesterday to their cause is misleading. True, some do go out of business, but for the majority, if they do go down, it's only because of lack of interest on the part of the owner and the people who download from it. Lousy content will do a paysite in faster than no money.
I am tending to avoid paysites when they partition off their creations to select people who are willing to fork over whatever they have to to get something that is sometimes very mediocre, and then buy into other sites (usually also pay) supporting that same mediocre content-it's a very locked circle and it's not very user friendly for those of us who don't want to give out their money to everyone in the universe that is Sims 2.
I'm just not willing to send my hard-earned money out to support another person's hobby.
