181  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Discussion / What I'd like to see in The Sims Franchise on: December 28, 2006, 04:37:49 pm
Sorry, didn't mean to offend or be too forceful. I suppose I'm just really tired of hearing how bad the game is when I love it so much.

I totally suggest going to the message boards on the Exchange to have your wants be heard. Whether many believe it or not, they DO listen. They just listen to the majority. YOU might be one of the majority. I was and now I have Pets in my game.

182  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Discussion / What I'd like to see in The Sims Franchise on: December 27, 2006, 11:49:20 pm
Most of the suggestions I've seen here are great and I think show a general idea of what most sims lovers want. However, I have to say that some are way out of the realm of reality. This is a game and if the programmers put too much realism into it the game would get VERY boring. Some of the problems have been pointed out (such as why it wouldn't work to "follow" a sim to their job or have time pass properly while on a community lot). Have to style their hair each time they take a shower or bath? That would get old after only a couple times of a 4 member family each getting clean. Sims having to mow the lawn? Thank goodness I hire the gardner because my sims can't keep up with the weeds and overgrown bushes!

Personally, I think some of you need to get out the sims1 game again so you can appreciate what sims2 has given you! We used to have set faces, no make-up, much less variety in clothing, no glasses, couldn't change the hair without changing the entire face, and they didn't age at all. Yes, we would all like sims 2 to be better, but lets keep in mind how far we've come. I'm sure the next version (I'm going to have to get a new computer before a sims 3 comes out) will be even more of an improvement.

I don't really understand about all the bugs people complain about but that's probably because I have no clue about "code" and couldn't create a mod or mesh or anything else to save my life. But I have to say that EA is a BUSINESS and will most likely only do as much as they have to so they can get the product out, that's life and the way it's always going to be. On the other hand, at the same time people say "take more time to work out the bugs", there are other people saying "hurry up and give me a new expansion!" Since either way they can't win, they probably go for the money, I would.

On a more personal note, for whoever it was who said they didn't like the "crazy stuff", I do. I love ghosts, zombies, aliens, vampires, and werewolves. Come the next expansion I will most likely love plant-people. But you know what I love most about them? If you don't want to have any of the above in your game, as a sim, you don't have to. Don't buy the big telescope, don't hire the grimreaper, don't make friends with the Count or Contessa, don't make friends with a Leader of the Pack, and don't worry about it.

This is turning into a rant and I didn't mean for it to. I guess my point is for people to remember how great it is instead of what its not, and don't get too caught up in it being "real" as too much realism is not fun.

OMG! OMG! OMG! *squeel*

All entries looks great. I LOVE how you design Geppetto. He looks awesome!
PS - Would they be available as adultwear as well?



OH! OH! I know the answer to this! What you do is just export it through Bodyshop and then export an adult mesh the same way, then put the picture from the first file into the second file and import back into Bodyshop. WhaLa! You have an adult version! It's easy and cool! I did that with just about everything Syn's done so I have everything for adult, young adult, and teen. You can do it for elders too, but most look kinda funky that way.

LOL, and who can blame you for wanting to rest, Syn!  Hopefully you find it to be worth the trouble, because they look great! Since my recolor for Zarek is gone, I might have to hijack one of these other ones for him and change it into an adult. That way when Marissa is kidnapped and held captive by evil villians wanting her to use her powers for their own profit, he can rescue her! Yay!

Oh, and as for The Three... There actually isn't a way to tell Amy, Beth, and Carrie apart when they are in costume. Out of costume it has to do with their mannerisms alone. Amy is more flamboyant, Beth is shy and a little straightlaced, while Carrie is down to earth.  This is a new developement for them because they were together so much as children that they didn't individualize (I think that's a word). When together they tend to still act like one person rather than displaying those individual traits.

Darn! I hope that flashdrive is found soon because this makes me want to write the story more and more. You'd think you providing us with these wonderful costumes would make me want to play, but I gotta take inspiration where I find it.

This is Maggie Gaines. She is from a story I wrote for fanfiction.net called "Ordinary People". Actually, you don't need to know that. I think she looks funky and just plain fun, so I'm sharing her and I hope you like her too.
 

 
The tatoo is part of the clothing as she comes with the basic Maxis skin.
 

 
This pic is just so you can see her hair from the side. I love this hair and picked it especially for her, even changing my story to put it in because I liked it on her so well.

LOL!  This is a great sim Dizi!  Mine will be much more feral, but it's good to have a beautiful one as well.  And actually, the more I look at her, if you change her hair to blonde, she would make a wonderful Carrie Underwood, Season 4 winner of American Idol!

~ Syn


Well, I can't say that I know who you're talking about because I don't follow American Idol, but go for it. Won't hurt my feelings any. I have like 15 colors of this particular hair so I'm sure there's one that will suit you.

As for Rahne's "feralness", I think it depends on the artist. Some show her looking kinda wolfish all the time and some show her looking very young and innocent in human form. Whichever you prefer.

Thanks! I had to make Wolfsbane once we had werewolves. It was a moral imperative.

189  Sims 2 Community Downloads / Sim Honeys / Rahne Sinclair, aka Wolfsbane on: December 04, 2006, 11:04:41 am
Okay, this is my very first Sims2 upload EVER so please be kind.
 
 

 

 
This is Rahne Sinclair, aka Wolfsbane, from the pages of X-Men. She is a former member of GenX, X-Factor, and Excalibur. Currently (as I understand it) she is back with the 'new' X-Factor being run by Jamie Maddox the Multiple Man. As her mutant power is shape-shifting into a wolf, being able to maintain a half-wolf/half-woman form, I highly recommend making her a werewolf as quickly as possible.
 

 
Personally, I think she makes a great werewolf.
 
 
 
Credits and links: Now if I miss anything someone please let me know so I can fix it.
Eyeshadow, eyeliner, and blush by sussifriberg, which is might be on MTS since her site closed. http://www.modthesims2.com/member.php?u=54226
Lipstick by Nouk at http://www.noukiesims2.net/
The hair is Ellu's recolor of a mesh from XMsims, the recolor and mesh links located at http://www.insimenator.org/showthread.php?t=12532 (this is the only thing NOT included)
Eyebrows and the eyes are by Echo66 again at MTS http://www.modthesims2.com/member.php?u=79259
The shirt is from SynapticSim and is located under his profile there, but it is included with his permission. http://www.modthesims2.com/member.php?u=74286
Lastly the pants are Maxis from the Nightlife expansion.
 
 
Many thanks to SynapticSim for his detailed instructions and help in posting this.
Right now I'm remaking ALL MY SIMS, so if people like what I'm doing I'll share more of them. Otherwise I'll continue to be greedy and keep them all to myself.

192  Sims 2 Community Downloads / Custom Sims / The Altered ~ Aerial on: November 27, 2006, 06:06:07 pm
Cool story! I just love a good story. I think your Aerial will go very well with my Marissa who's abilities are the result of her father having his dna messed with. Only he was rescued and the government agency currently thinks he's dead and have no knowledge that he has a child, especially a child who inherited their changes. At least they don't know yet.  

Yeah, I can be totally evil to my characters. But then I'll write another story and give them a happy ending.

Wow! I haven't downloaded eyes in a very long time just because there are so many out there they start to all look alike. That is definitely not the case here. These are tremendously real looking as well as being pretty. I thank you very much.

Great posters! The Gambit one especially looks wonderful but they are all just great!

You know, I think just about everything necessary for X-Man has been made. You might be able to put him together yourself very creditably and have a new upload... *whistles innocently*
