1  Simmers' Paradise / Where Can I Find...? / WCIF tutorials to start neighborhoods from scratch? on: June 07, 2009, 01:51:04 pm
I bookmarked some of them (jadeelliot's and plasticbox's to be specific) but now I cannot find them Sad

I really wanna be able to start a customized hood, no townies, all my sims with the economic system from the mentioned tuts. Does anyone know where I can find them? S2C's forums have been merged with MTS2 and I don't know where the WCIF section is anymore Sad

2  Simmers' Paradise / Sims Stories / The Price of Redemption *Updated 11.24* on: November 22, 2008, 01:41:33 pm
Author's Notes: I wrote this as fanfiction, about whom, you'll figure out soon enough. This is gonna be a little mature in terms of the subject, so if drug use and suicidal tendencies (darn I HATE giving away plot lines) offend you, I'm warning you now. Don't worry most of these will be implied and not shown in the pictures.  I would appreciate some feedback. Enjoy!






He found himself drowning in them, one after the other in a matter of seconds. From the moment that frail little body hit the bumper of his speeding car, to the heart stopping thud that signaled it has fallen back down against the asphalt road, and finally to the ear splitting screech the tires made as they grated against the pavement when he stepped on the brakes.




It was like being plunged into icy waters over and over again, the cold stabbing his skin like a thousand tiny knives and seeping into his bones. Up. Down. Up. Down. Up. Down.




The events following that were a blur, like a painter’s palette left in the rain, all the colors running together to form one swirling mass of confusion. Nothing was clear. Everything was just a colorful mess of days and nights blending into each other, not sure when one ended and the other began.




The first one made him stop breathing, his heart gripped by an invisible iron hand. The second one pierced his eyes with unshed tears and left his mouth dry. The last one was the reason he was here, in a calm, relaxing place where he was supposed to face his demons.

He didn’t know if he was ready to do it, if he had the guts to. But the one thing he knew, the only thing he was sure of, was that he wanted the nightmare to stop. He wanted fear, despair and regret to leave him alone.



It consumed her every breath. Like oxygen it travels in her veins, fuels her blood, pumps life into her body. She lived it. It owned her.


It saved her from an otherwise monotonous existence. The presence of hate doesn’t prove the absence of love. It’s the same life engulfing feeling. Intense. Deep. Disturbing.


She relished it, welcomed it at night when she lay on this narrow bed unable to sleep. She lets it fill her to the core, waiting for it to overflow like hot lava from a volcano’s mouth, exploding, dribbling down the sides, flooding and burning everything in sight. Burning her. Burning only her.


It’s never ending, a bottomless pit, a black hole sucking the light and joy and love out of everything and anything and she lets it.


She can’t wait until she finally lets it go. She wonders what would happen when she does. Will she be an empty hollow shell, breathing but lifeless? Or will she really be free? She wonders if she wants hate to leave her alone.

*Thanks for reading!*

I'm sorry if this has been asked before.
 I wanna change the name of my custom neighborhood. How can I do that? It won't let me edit in game. Or at least I don't know how.

7  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / How to break up with someone? on: December 09, 2007, 05:33:14 am
So i started playing the game earlier this week. it's so addictive Smiley

anyway my legacy sim managed to be in love with two people at the same time.  i had her propose to one and the other one to move in. now how do i break up with the one she's engaged to? i'd really like her to get married to the one she's living with because they have kids and one of her fears is to be of old age and not get married.

how do i break them up so she can get married to the other one?

btw, i'm not using any cheats or hacks. the only one am using is to automatically pay the bills.  thanks!

10  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Custom lots causing game crash? on: October 26, 2007, 06:04:10 am
I've had four game crashes in about two months. It's really not a good time to have my game crashing especially when i have contests to do.

the first crash was something i can't even explain. i didn't know what was wrong with my game. i tried everything and finally i resorted to re-installing my game. i backed up my saved sims, downloads and neighborhood folders.

the second crash was a bad mesh which i found after 12 hours of taking things out, starting the game, replacing things, re-starting, etc.

the third and fourth though came after i have downloaded some custom lots. now i got lots from different creators and only with the ones compatible with my EPs. after i delete those lots, my game works again. so my question is this...

did re-installing my game somehow affect the way my game handles custom lots?

i have numenor's scriptorium, does this mean i have to edit the text file or whatever every time i download custom lots with their stairs, fireplace, etc?

i'm really confused because i was able to download lots before i re-installed my game. i'm just wondering if anyone can help me out.

11  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Sims don't do anything on: September 21, 2007, 07:21:02 pm
I just noticed this recently but my sims don't do anything unless i command them to. freewill is on.

this is really strange because they don't even do the idle anims that they used to even when when freewill was turned off.

has this happened to anyone else? i haven't downloaded new hacks, btw. thanks
12  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / CAS and lots loads forever! Please Help! on: September 03, 2007, 05:37:02 am
It's not my downloads. I took out my downloads folder and I could get in the game pretty fast but when i go to a lot or create a family the mouse pointer that turns into a timer just turns and turns. there is no blue screen of death, the graphics are still there, the music still plays but it takes sooo long and i have to end the game using ctrl+alt+del.

i would appreciate any advice you can give me. i'm in the final round of two contests and i don't wanna drop. please help me. thanks!
13  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Downloads Folder arrange by date... help! on: September 02, 2007, 11:25:59 pm

my game crashed and for the life of me i can't remember what i've downloaded between the time i last played and today. my problem is when i arrange the files in my downloads folder they are arranged according to the date the creator uploaded the files or whatever, it's not WHEN I INSTALLED the stuff.

so i don't know which to get rid of. Sad

i was able to arrange them by the date i installed them before but i don't know when  this started or what exactly happened but i just can't seem to arrange them that way. any thoughts? i really need to get in my game i have a deadline tomorrow. Sad
14  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Missing downloads or headless naked people in CAS on: July 14, 2007, 11:52:21 pm
sorry if this is in the wrong section. please move it if it's in the wrong place, thanks mods! Smiley

i have a LOT of downloaded clothes that look like naked headless people in CAS.  when i select them, the clothes appear but once i go ingame, the clothes revert to the maxis default of the pink shirt and pants.  am i missing the meshes? or is it because the creator had more eps than i do?

i need to know the difference because if it's the ps i might as well delete them but if it's meshes i might not be too lazy to hunt them down.

thanks in advance! Smiley
15  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Bodyshop graphics bettern than ingame? on: June 06, 2007, 11:54:47 pm
My bodyshop graphics is waaaaaaaaay better than my game graphics. my sims ingame are jagged while in bodyshop they're so smooth and nice.

why does this happen? what should i do to make my graphics ingame better? all the settings are on high and i have an integrated video card which isn't the best i'm told. but before my sims looked so much better before.

should i delete some of my downloads? i'm just so frustrated at the quality of my graphics Sad
