Whoo, it has been a crazy month.  I started a new job in December ... funny how that cuts into my simming time!  The holidays have been super crazy for me because I've been traveling non stop, and now I have a cold to boot.  Meh.  The cold gives me a good excuse to hang around and sim though.  I've played through an update or two of the Faunas but I ran into some technical errors with my screenshot program so I'm missing about half my pics.  I keep on putting off the updates because I'm so annoyed by this, but realistically the sooner I post the sooner I can get past it.  So, in short, expect an update in the next couple of days.  I hope everyone is enjoying their holidays!

I have not been showing my face around these parts too much lately but I do have good excuses. I put in my two weeks notice at my last job about a month ago, which was exciting but exhausting. It was like extracting myself from an abusive relationship. I wish I was being overly dramatic ... I'm not. At least it's over now. I threw in a last minute trip up to Humboldt County with my boyfriend before starting my new job. I'm currently in week two of the new job. I am SO much happier here! But it's a very high energy job and the training has been overwhelming. I'm glad that things are starting to settle down a bit.

Anyhoo, I did participate in GOS's Christmas in July and I have a few goodies to share!

Sorry it has been a while since I've updated these guys ... I've been having issues with the game and haven't been very motivated to fix it.  And, the weather has been too nice to play. :DRead moreCollapse )

Is it bad that I enjoy making sims even more than playing the game?  I was really inspired by thealicecat’s Periodic Table of Elements sims collection, but I wanted to make mine original. Mine will be the seven deadly sins and seven heavenly virtues.

So for the first time in years my game borked. UGH! This is why you haven’t seen much of the Asteroids lately. It happened about a week ago and I didn’t really want to deal with it, so I finished up some Body Shop projects I’d been meaning to do. But I am missing my lil’ simmies so I am undertaking the daunting troubleshooting process.

Basically my sims get “stuck” when they try to fulfil their free will action queue. It happened when I moved the Asteroids into this beach house lot.  I thought, “Wow, they can jump off of a diving board into the ocean? That’s too good to be true!” Turns out it was too good to be true. L I don’t want to start accusing MTS2 creators of breaking games though, it’s a featured upload so obviously it was tested. It may be that the hacks they used for that just interfere with some of my hacks; who knows. But ye be warned about the temptations of snazzy beach lots!

On the upside, here's some hilarious pics of what the game thinks the Asteroids should look like without and hacks or CC:

I have realized that I'm beginning to reeeally like maxis match.  It's just so cartoonish and fun.  I'm hoping some of you will have use for it as well!
