 O hai der. 

I'm not dead (thankfully). I've been so frickin busy lately that I had hardly time to do anything. But now it's almost winter break and I should be back and posting again.

EDIT: And I changed up the theme. Hope you like it.

Can anyone help me with finishing this desk?

I decided to convert one of my favorite desks from TS2 to TS3, the Free Time Sewing Table mesh edit. I'm pretty proud of how it looks so far:



But as you can see, there is an issue with the foot rest; the texture is filling in the holes. I made an alpha and everything, yet what should be empty is texture-filled. Here's an up close:



Can anyone help me with this?

Also, the footprint of the desk is too big. You can see here:



Can anyone help me with this as well?

Thanks in advance :)

I'm pretty sure in the next few days, I'm going to be deleting all my CC and starting fresh in the TS2. I have over 4 gigs of downloads, and half I don't even use. I'm also pretty fed up at the 20 and + minute loading time and all the lag during game. I really like the way [livejournal.com profile] niloublue 's game looks, so I think I'm going to go the way she went.

SavesWatts

I found SavesWatts, an energy saving alternative to Google (yet still Google), a few months ago. I thought you guys should check it out, because if just 0.01% of people who use Google switch to SavesWatts, we could enough energy to power an entire neighborhood.

Here is how it says it works:

"SavesWatts is powered by the Google Search Engine, and is based on the the fact that different colors consume different amounts of energy on computer monitors. Black requires the least amount of energy. The energy savings per search are small, but it has been estimated that a black Google would save 750 Megawatts per year."

Check it out!

Would anyone be interested in grungy recolors of the Sims 3 rabbit holes? I have done 5 so far:




-The Bistro


-The Grocery


-The Movie Theater


-The Stadium


-The Hospital (I might redo this one though because I don't care for it much)

Let me know if this is something you would like!

Summer is so close! There has been an overload of work at school, but in about a week and a half, it'll be summer for me :D But, finals next week and the week after D: I have pictures taken for a new update, I just need time to put the entry together. I'll be back with an update soon!

ARGHH!!! I just spent 2 hours redecorating the community lots in my town and the game decided to crash on me, and of course I didn't save. I hate when that happens! D:<

Also, changed the layout and got new icons. Let me know what you think!

Meet the Drugens

Sorry it's been so long, I've just been crazy busy. But now it's Spring Break, so I have a whole lot of free time! :D In this post, you'll find some new inhabitants, and an update of the Drugen family. It's also pretty picture heavy :P

Sorry I haven't made posts in a while, I just need time to put one together. I've taken most of the pictures but I still need a few more. I've also been really busy with school and music and I'm feeling really stressed out. I just need time to calm down and figure out my time.

Basically for the next three weeks, all my time is taken up by band and school. My school band is going to Washington D.C. (:D never been there before) from March 10th to March 14th, so we have to have practices every Sunday afternoon until the trip. This Saturday, I have a Jazz trip to Chicago from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. All my other free time I have to practice and do my homework, and also get yelled at by my mom for not practicing, not doing my homework, etc. Did I mention I'm stressed out? Oh yeah, I have OCD and mild depression on top of all that, and I haven't been getting enough sleep.

Sorry for the huge rant, I just needed to get that out.

My first TS3 Photospam :D I just recently re-installed the game, but got fed up with the Sunset Vally loading time and never really liked Riverview, so I downloaded Fargo and fell in love with it. Here you will meet the Drugens (the first residents of Fargo) and see their house.


Pascaline Drugen: married to Hoa and loves to play guitar and clean things


Hoa Drugen: married to Pascaline and loves to search the galaxy (that's her annoyed face :P)


Tanner Drugen: adopted son of Hoa and Pascaline (his backstory to me is that he's an orphan from Haiti because of the recent devastating earthquake and Hoa and Pascaline adopted him :])

Now onto the house:

Living room


Desk in Living Room


Hallway


Kitchen


Hoa and Pascaline's Bedroom


Tanner's Room


Outside of the house (I'm loving the Mansard Roof Conversions :D)

Until next time!

Lately I've been overloaded with schoolwork, so that's one of the reasons I haven't made an update. I also started playing TS3 again, but don't worry, I'm not quitting TS2. Soon I'll have some TS3 photospams of my new game I started.

And another thing: I got Fallout 3!!! :D It's so fun!

I'm sick and bored to death, but everytime I click play on the Sims 2 launcher, nothing happens. Does anyone know what's wrong with it?

Edit: Nevermind, deleting the cache files made it start.

I thought I might share my favorite piece I've ever learned and played on piano. It's Moonlight Sonata by Beethoven. Take a listen:

I learned it last year but took a break from piano and forgot how to play it :P now I'm relearning it :D

Here's some pictures of another apartment I made yesterday:

I found a long lost flapper hair mesh and decided to pooklet it with pooklet's actions after I changed the original texture to look like her Violate texture. I didn't feel like posting on GOS, so here you go. Mesh is included because it isn't hosted anywhere.
