I was a user back in 2009. I forgot my login info and have since gotten a new email, so here I am.  tongue

My name is Lyss and I'm 23 years old.

I recently got a new computer and decided to pick up Sims 2 again after... years. I don't have any friends who play The Sims 2 so I'm open to making some online friends.

Since it's been so long I feel like a new player. If anyone could recommend some good places to get CC I'm all ears.

Please feel free to say hello. I don't bite!

Greetings.

I recently tried TS4 and instantly hated it. And after that I bought TS3 and I'm enjoying it. Though it doesn't feel fun as much as TS2 was.

Thanks to my master's thesis, I made a return to sims world (I'm studying gender & sexuality in gaming) for information gathering and nostalgia hit me hard... I really miss the old colorful days of TS2, when the forums were hard to keep track of with so much activity and building connections with so many people all around the world. But times change, people age, we all die eventually... I know that some creators passed away, some "friends" had gone through so many bitter life events and many simmers from the past aged and caught in real life drama, work, kids, school etc... It is hard to keep interest in gaming at some point when you face so many punches in your face while trying to survive IRL, and it is even harder to keep relatively older audience of a game which is relatively outdated... From my personal experience, I can confidently say that majority of TS2 audience is going through late 20's-early 30's period of their lives currently and noone can deny that those decades of a human life can be the hardest. Like, you're passing from young adult to a fully grown adult, you're settling somehow, trying to stabilize your finances, your family, your career and many more. The sims can be the ultimate escapism but you mostly won't have the time, even if you get some, you won't spare them on forums like the old days...

It leaves a bitter taste in my mouth too. Like Yakov (beosboxboy) used to joke about it, maybe I'm an over-sentimental a*hole and it is my ultimate curse on this planet. After so many years, I find myself replying to this thread with so many conflicted emotions and such. I hope I summerized the situation more or less correctly though. Salute to all my fellow past-simmers.

I thnk there will be a gap in between the bodies, too. The female waists are a lot thinner than the male ones.

You can use separated bottoms and tops instead. If you use only male tops that are untucked, you can simply get all female bottoms and enable them for males in Bodyshop. The untucked shirt hides the difference between the male top and female bottom, so you have males dressed as females (with high heel inclusive) without boobs.

do you know how to convert the gender of a cloth in bodyshop? how do I do this?

If you are trying to do what was mentioned above and only make some of the female bottom separates available for men, then you don't have to worry about the neckline. And using untucked men's tops may cover up the mis-matched meshes at the waist. But you still cannot do this in BodyShop. To make a bottom separate available to both genders, you would edit the package file for that separate in SimPE, find the Property Set and change the Gender entry to 0x03. (0x01=female, 0x02=male, 0x03=both).

I've never done this exact thing so I don't know how good it will look. The untucked shirt may still show a crease or gap in it at the waist.

You can't do it only with Bodyshop. You need SimPE and a meshing program, because otherwise there will be a significant gap between the neck and the clothes.

(Clothes can easily be gender-swapped between child/toddler/infant by changing the "gender" line in SimPE or in the Wardrobe Wrangler, but teens/adults/elders have very different necks between the genders. It is possible to gender-swap clothes the same way for the older ages, but you'll nearly always get a very ugly neck gap that looks like their head has half been cut off. Most hairs and face accessories will get similar issues when genderswapped because the male and female heads have a different placement and size).

My Sims of choice has always been 2. 1's graphics I could never go back to, 3 was too ambitious (Even the adopted children looked Just Like your character), and 4 was too limited (One small city block? seriously?)

Of the three, it has the best engine for mods, most widespread mod community, and has the most built-in features (pregnant ->nb -> toddler -> child -> teen -> (first EP) ya -> adult -> elder.
Only had to wait 2 EPs for vampires and dance clubs, one additional EP for @home jobs. Everything else was just flavor additives (Pets, Seasons, Freetime, Bon Voyage, Apartment Life) that weren't necessary but still managed to enhance the game.

>.> yeah, I know no one here needs a history of sims. Just kinda what of it appealed to me.

Anyway, I think I've seen you around during my second wave on-site. 2008 era.
[edit]: Nah, my mistake. I returned around 2010/11 era. I must have met you first time around. Name's familiar at the least.

Welcome back!

I was the same, think RL got busy around 2013, and I wasn't playing or on the forums for a good few yrs. I did one or two grand re-entrances but then faded off again. Got back playing (TS4-I despised it when it was released, but it grew on me). I started playing last Xmas after plenty of EPs, GP's and CC had been added  YAY

What are you playing 2, 3 or 4? (or really retro and gone for 1 lol)

Hi Guys

I've been back playing the game for around 6 months now and I've started doing some recolours again. This time for The Sims 4. The game grew on me, but as usual, the Maxis stuff is rubbish, so I made some of my own recolours.

I've started my own Tumblr page and I've already put my creations on for download. Here's a few examples of my CC so far:









You can find my page HERE

I'll be updating weekly and it'll most likely be my usual MO, kids and toddler stuff Smiley

Baby shark is no real issue. Now if you had done Circular Appendages of the Mass Transit Vehicle Constantly Spin Spin Spin, I'd have refused to sign back up.
