Aging

Even though I’m sticking with the Sims 3, the way some facial features are “aging” drives me crazy, and I’d be curious to see this will work inthe Sims 4.

See how this “too short nose” boy gets this “nose too close of the mouth” man by aging up. This is no sense. (random Sim & clothes)

Reblog if you don’t plan on leaving The Sims 3

morrowsims:

I’m sad because a lot of blogs I like are choosing TS4 and completely dropping TS3. I just want to know if at least some people are sticking with TS3 or both TS3 and TS4

I’ve just started a new town as the first one was getting too crowded after 5 years of gameplay there, so I’m planning to play the Sims 3 as my main game for at least the five next years! ;D

Around the Sims 3 | Shop Shutters

These have been on my “to-do” list for almost two years! With some shops closing in my first Sims town, plus the new town I’m building, they finally became “urgent”! :D The shop shutters are categorized as curtains, and work the same: they won’t prevent your Sims to get through, so it’s better to use on windows. If you use on doors, be sure to lock it. The metal shutters come in several variations with graffitis or ads pasted on them.
Basic, but useful! ;)

Around my Sims | Rocheplate

I made a page at my blog about the new town I’m working on, based on my friend Rachel’s New Rochelle world.

It’s a work-in-progress, but you might find fun to see how I build towns (with only rectangles… *chuckle*). Many things will change! It took me five years to NOT complete Sandy Valley, and I only started working on Rocheplate this summer, so… *lol* we’re far from the end! ;)

You’ll also be able to meet some of the first citizens of the city.

Around the Sims 3 | Good morniiiiiing!

It all started by someone requesting a toaster. I was eager to draw one, because I hadn’t any in my game. But you begin to know me, right? One toster became two, because, even if I like the look of the big american toaster, I also wanted a more frenchy one. So, I meshed the toaster I have in my kitchen. Also, I was missing a coffee machine with a jug, so I made one. Plus a kettle. And an electric one too, just because. Plus toasts to go with the toasters… and here we go, I ended up with a tiny set called “Good morning!” ;)

Around the Sims 3 | Pinballs
First: the site is back online! Yeah! But the problem isn’t solved (the site is incredibly slow for me, I hope it will load fine for you!), so it will probably go down again, while I try to fix the problem. I won’t touch anything during the week-end, though, so it should be safe for at least two days! ;)
A tiny update, then: PINBALLS, as a revenge for the little girl I was, who was fascinated by these machines but who hardly dared playing them, as they were always surrounded by terrifying teens! All in all, I have spent way much more time on Sierra pinballs games (I LOVED them, anyone remember?) than on the real object. :D
There’s one mesh and 5 variations.

Around the Sims 3 | Tablets


I’ve been requested pretty many times to make tablets, and, because I’m grumpy and unfriendly, my usual answer was “well, I don’t think I’ll do, because that’s just too boring to draw…”. *rolleyes* But then, I offered a tablet to a Sim of mine, and was bothered by the llama and the excessive shine of the object. So, I caved, and made a tablet. One? huh, nope, three. One is iPad inspired but without text (and with two kinds of recolorable apples, plus a version without any apple), another one is inspired by Kindle with keyboard, and one is more for kids, but it all depends on the colors you choose. It can look like other existing tablets (but i don’t know which trademark). They’re, of course, fully functional and you can read, buy books online, play videogames, listen to stuff…

The Eco-District - from WIP to RIP

  1. the high-school
  2. the eco-café
  3. the canal
  4. overview
  5. the market
  6. residences

I already spammed you quite often with pictures of the Eco-District in my town, but sadly, this district has been affected by my Anti-Crash Plan and will be discontinued, so I post pictures of how it was before I gave up the project. It was still not finished, actually.

I had planned to add an organic grocery near the market, with a library at its top, a tiny park for kids, and a community house where it would have been possible for the inhabitants of the district to have a coffee, to leave their kids while they were going shopping, to organize meetings and teen parties.

I’m not bulldozing everything, though, as I keep the highschool & eco-café (both on the same lot), and two houses. I moved them in another place of the town, and bulldozed everything else. The eco-market will take place some days on my regular market place. The canal is actually on the same lot as the high-school and eco-cafe, so currently, I still have it, but it looks a bit silly where it is now, so I might delete it.

I’m a bit sad to have to give up that district, but I’m building another town where I’ll be able to put tons of new buildings and districts (before making everything exploding again! ;D)

Reply about “Save as…”

marimidnight reblogged this from aroundthesims and added:

i thought that “save as” was harmful to the sims 3. or am i mixing that up with “save and quit”?

It’s indeed the “Save and Quit” that is said to be bad, as the game might not be able to have the time to write correctly its files while shutting down.

"Save as…" also allows me to keep tracks of my game at various states. For example, if a save turns corrupted, I can still use the previous one. I also keep a save each time I install a new EP, so I can still see how my game was before I installed Late Night, for example, or at the time Seasons was released. This has no interest, though, except entertaining me! ;D
