Not a whole lot of Maxis makeovers happen in my game besides some random townies and such, since I play a custom hood. The only time Maxis families get played in my game is if they're one of the families in the Sim bin and I decide to place them!

One of the families I decided to plunk into my hood was the Picaso family. I hadn't played them forever but I decided it was time to get something going on for them!

Here's the cute little house they moved into. Originally they were in one of the Maxis rowhouses, but I needed something with a little more room for two family Sims to expand their family into. :)

See the Picaso's.... )

Last time, Denise made a laughable suggestion to Juan about having another kid, Cheese was adorable and sleepy, Alicia sold lemonade, Helena kept sneaking out and there was a mother-daughter water balloon fight.

Why so upset Denise? Lots of changes for the Travers ahead... )

Dogs!

Christy Chien is an avid dog lover, and I'd be willing to bet her house doesn't smell too good thanks to it. But she wouldn't have it any other way!

Meet Christy, Owen, and the dogs.... )

Just a really basic recolour I did recently in my efforts to get more use out of certain items in my game. This is the Patio Plastics chair which I believe came with the base game? In any case, it only came in one colour - white. Which yes, is a fairly flexible colour but I always wanted more options! So I recoloured it in 19 of Curious B's colour actions!

See the rest.... )

Last time, Adso passed on and Cheese the kitten joined the family. Helena rebelled by sneaking out, and Alicia became a child. Catch up more fully:

Hey all. Based on the current mood of LJ doom prophecies, I'm deciding to be safe rather than sorry and back up onto a Dreamwidth journal as well. For now, LJ is still my primary journal though. It's just a failsafe in case LJ does go the way of the dodo.

For now it doesn't look all that pretty - DW is very similar to LJ in most ways, but not identical so there are certain things I'm still figuring out!

Here's the link.

See you soon with some real updates!

Just like walls, there is a distinct lack of good kids and youth rugs in the game. Sure, some of the expansion packs added a few but let's be real - they're mostly ugly.

These ones will fit in much more nicely!

Whoops!

I just noticed I made a real bonehead move... I forgot to include one of the screenshots for my latest set of kids walls! If you downloaded it you may have noticed it and scratched your head a little. Consider it a bonus! Here's the screenie, if you want it go back to the post linked above, I will be adding that screenshot in that post too! Oops!

Welcome to my LJ! Here I post my Sims 2 updates including decorating pics, random days-in-the-life and a slowly evolving legacy. I also make downloads, usually wallpapers, some object recolours and the occasional Sim.

Feel free to package anything I've made with lots you create. Credit would be appreciated! No paysites though. I don't make money from it, why should you? ;)

Other than that, enjoy!

Now that the kidlets have a few more options for modern style murals in their rooms, the adults need another turn! Here are four more modern contemporary style murals, adult style. All murals are three piece - a plain wall (which you can conveniently also use as a regular paint should you so desire) and the two piece mural section.

Check 'em out... )

After a loooooooooooooooooooong hiatus, I figured I should finally get back to making some of those modern nursery/kids walls! They have been very popular since I released them, both on my LJ and especially over at MTS. I'm feeling lazy right now after working on these all night and I don't want to bother with the MTS upload process, so I may or may not eventually upload these there too. In any case, they're gonna be here! This is a big pack of them too!


See the pics and download... )

In the previous installment, Denise and Juan welcomed their second daughter Alicia to the family, after which Denise tried to get back into shape, and Helena became a teenager (and somewhat rebellious as we will see in this episode).

The last few days my Sim addiction has come back HARD... playing hours on end! It's good to be this into it again. :) Here's a few shots from a home I've just finished decorating.

As promised last time, we need to see who the newest addition to the Travers family is, and what else is going on in their lives!

Go ahead and catch up with the rest of their story first if you need to.

WOW! It's been a while! Long story short... I got out of the habit of playing. And then when I wanted to play again, I had gotten a new monitor and the game looked SO different (bad) on it that I couldn't even bear to play it. Finally, this last week I wanted to play so bad that I fired it up for the first time in a year or so, and fiddled with the monitor settings for about 10 minutes and finally found settings that make the game look good! Sadly I have to readjust everytime I play because the settings that work for the game make the internet almost impossible to look at, but that's life! I'm glad to be playing again!

I figured a good way to dive right back into it would be to play my legacy family a bit more, and things are moving along nicely for them!

To catch up first, check out the rest of the legacy.

Denise and Juan had been trying for another baby, and lately Denise had been feeling hungrier than usual... maybe it meant something?

... but is it weird that I haven't played the game for months, and yet a few weeks ago I made a set of wallpapers for said game I haven't played lately?

Probably.

In any case, those walls will be up ASAP! I made them and then left them sitting around, so now I just have to churn them through Homecrafter, make some screenies and upload!

Coming sooooon...

I'm aliiiiiiiiiiiiive!! As per usual I had a Simming drought (they happen often..) but I am back with DOWNLOADS!! :D :D I taught myself how to make rug recolours, and I have a big ol' pack of 27 modern contemporary style rugs for your Simmies to walk on, hang out on, pass out on, whatever!

These are recolours of the Organically Atomic Rug which requires the Pets EP.

Hey everyone! Just wanted to drop a quick line to say I am NOT dead! I just haven't been in much of a Simming mood lately, or even a computer mood! I've got the next week or so off, but I'll be out of town for the next few days... after that though I want to try to get some Simming time in because it's been a while! Maybe even some creating time! :)

Happy New Year to all of you!

I participated in my first Sims Secret Santa exchange this year, at Sims 2 Supernova forums! One of the gifts I got was this awesome Sim named Nathan Colbert!

I got him all set up in his new bachelor pad, so here's some decor pics and some shots of the man himself!

I rarely get bugs or weird behaviour in my game, but this one cropped up tonight and it is really frustrating me. >:( I posted this over at the MTS help forums, but I'll post it here too in case anyone on LJ can give any advice!

"Had a weird bug crop up tonight. I have a Sim family, and I noticed that the little girl had crawled into her parents bed next to mom to sleep. So I woke her up and told her to go sleep in her own bed. But every time I queued that up, the icon in the queue changed from her own bed to the parent's bed and she went to sleep there instead.

So I got both the parents in bed so it wasn't available, but now the option to sleep in her own bed is just GONE, even though she was very low on energy.

Included a screenshot to show what I mean.

I changed the bed to another one, rearranged the room, saved, exited, reloaded etc. I had recently downloaded a couple new hacks, so I removed them from the game but no effect.

So for now she is having to sleep on the couch which seems to be no problem, but I can't figure out what is causing this bug and how to fix it?"
