Whoa - Journal Entry

Date Posted: 5th Aug 2010 at 12:08 PM

Its a long story, but to cut it short - PC got stolen, had to wait for new one, old one can't run TS3. So I went back to TS2.....again.

Anyhoo, for me creating is playing, so I made a desk actually TWO - will put them up on LeeFish and/or MTS. Not sure.


Desks are mirrored and have three deco slots

New window and a bottle of beer!!

Date Posted: 18th Oct 2009 at 12:21 AM

Well, I NEARLY retired - I had lost all interest in sims3, no one seems to care about sims2 anymore...I love playing sims2, but mainly so I can make stuff. BUT - I dunno, I took a little holiday (a break from Sims really) and came back all inspired.

This is gonna be my next upload - a centralised version of the little round sash window from TS3. In my version the brick surround recolours (thanks to Q who believed I could) and I rather cheekily redid the EA original to match mine....

a bottle of beer will be included in the upload. Why? Because I'm celebrating!

Sims3 Troubles....

Date Posted: 8th Oct 2009 at 10:52 PM

Well, I bought sims3. I installed it on my elderly laptop, and after a few weeks I noticed poor old lappy was not enjoying sims3 at all. My game is running slow, I can't build, I have my settings super low so the graphics look awful. Not fun. So no more sims3 for me until I get a new PC. Which means I have gone back to TS2. And gosh how I love that game, I think my heart will always belong to TS2.

Anyway, for me, playing is fiddling about with meshes and things so I can have my game look like I want it, and I always wanted to build a bookshop, but the book cases always looked so creepy. I spent the last week EMPTYING the billy bookcases from the IKEA set and then making deco books to fit (madness....) so I could get the look I wanted. The deco books are linked to plasticboxes amazing recolours - and well, see the pic. Is that cute or what?

Yes I will upload these on MTS, some more fiddling to do yet.

When I'm making Windows (ukelele not included)

The big 100....

Date Posted: 27th Jun 2009 at 9:51 PM

Ulp, I am so excited.....the big 100,000 Downloads mark is here.....

I joined the site last July, and I have to admit I NEVER thought that I would be a creator, let alone so many downloads and nice comments. When I posted my first window I thought I would get MAYBE 100 downloads of that item, so I was stunned when I reached that number in the first 2 days.

And now, here I am; Featured, 100k of DLs, prize in the creator challenge. Its all a bit surprising as I am just an ordinary simmer. Anyway, I have met a lot of nice people and I really love this site and I never had a hobby before - its FUN. I will probably move to sims3 creation, but in the meantime, I will continue to be happy here, creating windows for sims2.

Thank you MTS!!

Mansion and Garden

Date Posted: 9th May 2009 at 4:19 PM

Well, I bought the stuff pack, and I have to say I am quite disappointed with it. I see EA did try to make sets - but have not quite got the idea of what a set is to a player.
Also, a lot of the new stuff is NOT wellmade and would not have made it through the moderation queue IMO.

So, I made a start -

This window has a glitch - see if you can see it; it is because the original window has a glitch too..... I will work on a set of these.

Animated windows (sort of)

Date Posted: 19th Apr 2009 at 7:23 PM

I was attempting to build a warehouse for my game - and I wanted some nice windows. I was going to make an open set and a closed set of privacy sized windows to fit the style of the AL Gearhead windows.

But then I looked at my build catalog and thought, meh, so many custom windows make stuff hard to find.

So I made a sort of animated window - has two states; open and closed and goes via a piemenu. Check out the video link below, and watch the little window......It opens and closes - you can make it stay in either state. Click on the pic below and see the window in action!

Will be uploading end of this week I hope.

Train station

Date Posted: 20th Mar 2009 at 3:07 PM

Well, I have been working on this forever; it is a train station, set in the 1930's - 1940's. It is a community lot and is nearly finished - the biggest pieces of custom content are the clock from on the site and special train tracks I made.
The lot has a cafe, restaurant, bar (poker and darts) many toilets and seats and a newspaper kiosk.

Here it is - Simton station, circa 1938

I am working on a few more bits of custom content, but it is practically finished

EDIT: is now uploaded, and is one of my Personal picks because I LOVE this lot.

Missing File - please help?

Date Posted: 15th Mar 2009 at 12:54 AM


well, as a fairly new creator everything I had uploaded was gone from MTS2 after the crash. I had 80% of the files still, and I got 3 back from some very helpful people, thank you, but I am missing 1 file.

Does anybody have a non played in (ie sat in the lot bin, or even better the rar file) version of my Blue Cottage?

It is this thread

Maybe not the greatest house in the world, but I would be sad to lose it. If you have it, please can you attach the file to the post incomments and I will reupload.

While here, I would just like to say how amazed and impressed I am that so many people have stepped forward to help after the crash. It certainly refutes the claims that the sims2 community is bitchy, which is something I have never seen, and just convinces me more to stay around and create stuff, maybe even for sims3 - who knows?

Back to creating

Date Posted: 1st Feb 2009 at 2:27 PM

Well, I started a new job in January, and it is going well, still got a lot to learn, but I am getting back into creating - but now as part of a group. I joined the simnation modding collective and so I am busy with the group projects right now.

I still have a few bits of unfinished business of my own though - here's a list of my current projects;

Monticello door - 90% done
Socialite set from AL - 50% done, I have one half of the windows completed
Smitty classy expansion from AL - only 1 door and 1 window so far.

I think the socialite set will be finished first.
