As you all know by now, a new update has been released to The Sims 3 in anticipation of the Island Paradise EP release next week (for my birthday, no less! Huzzah!) This update forced me and anyone else who plays with mods to wait, very patiently, for out favorite modders to verify what got broken in their original programming and fix it. I’m pleased to say that as of yesterday, the 21st, most of them have either let us know their stuff works, have fixed what was broken, or had created mods that just didn’t need updating anyway, whether the modder knows it or not. Things like OMSP aren’t breaking the game on load. Unfortunately, if you have any Darkpool mods, it’s likely they don’t work. Actually, an interesting thing happens: the game loads to the main menu, but then all the menus are blank. No text, no pictures, nothing. OOPS! Luckily, these are rather esoteric mods, meant for specific game actions, and hardly crucial. Unless I were writing legacies and needed them for story continuity, I can certainly wait.
So that’s updates and mods all rolled into one topic. Continue reading
After the Hewlett, and feeling both unburdened by my stint with DOTY and re-invigorated by my passage through it’s halls, so to speak, I’ve found I want to make more houses again. So I’m working on a cute little Cape Cod with a modest exterior, but pretty big dreams on the inside.
The Hewlett began as a cc-free project, intended for a LivingSims challenge. Alas, by the time the challenge began, I was so far out into DOTY-land that I simply didn’t couldn’t finish it in time. Nonetheless I persevered, because I just love the design of this house!
My goal this year was to make it to the third round of DOTY this year, and guess what? I DID IT!
As you can imagine, I’m terribly excited. I’ll have more updates at the end of this week’s entry period. Wish me luck!
I’d also like to congratulate all those who made it through, including the LivingSims members who managed to be chosen out of the top 20. Well done to all! TO everyone else, I don’t know how they didn’t choose you, because you were some real and serious competition. Thank you!
I meant to post this a few days ago, but this round took so much out of me that I had to take a few days to breathe!
This time around, the Smiths are in Tuscany, Italy. We’re talking beautiful sunsets, rustic charm, the works. I chose a color palette I thought would work nicely in a rustic farmhouse, since we were doing the kitchen/dining area.
