    I'm weird in that I actually prefer the 'super-ugly' base game eyes to CC eyes ;) but I'm in the minority. What is important is that your game stays enjoyable for you so I get it if you want to put this challenge on hold for a bit while waiting to find some different CC eyes. No worries at all and don't feel bad about it! <3

    The latest patch seems to have been a disaster in general. Loads of people are having saves crashing and things... I am so glad that I haven't downloaded the patch! I don't intend to until things get fixed up either.

    @MonaSolstraale The default eyes replace the EA eyes so I don't need to change them all the time :)

    @pammiechick I haven't really played yet but I've read about tons of problems, too! This patch sounded awesome but is a big oof. I hope all the stuff is fixed ASAP.

    @MaggieMarley You also like Vlad so ... Just kidding ^^ The EA eyes look like dead eyes staring right into your soul so I really can't stand them.


    General stuff: I downloaded the facepaint versions now and they work. I have to replace them manually but that's better than nothing.

    Side note: Yes, I'm a drama queen :D

    Also, any opinions on the MAC makeup? I love MAC lipsticks in real life but that... I'm a bit disappointed. Like, what is this thing in the eyeliner category? o.O Oh wait, most of you don't have it yet... You can see it in Deligracy's video :)

    EDIT: Ok, like in real life I like the lipstick but the rest is ... a bit on the weird side :D

    It's true, I am a bit of a weirdo :p I dunno why it is that I like the EA eyes... I guess I'm just odd!

    It's great that you found a solution! It must be really upsetting that something so important to your game just got taken away like that.

    Nah you're not a drama queen, like I said the eyes are important to you and how you play - nothing wrong with that! I'd be equally mad if an update broke MCCC and there was no fix for it since MCCC is important to how I play.

    I saw that Deligracy video already and yeah not impressed... Irl I never wear makeup and know nothing about it so maybe I'm not qualified to have an opinion but I really hated some of those pieces (although don't get me wrong there is some nice stuff too). That long eyeliner with the gem in particular... No!!! I bet all my townies will be wearing it after I update lol.

    @MaggieMarley You're not odd, tastes are different :p

    There are 2 things in the game I cannot live without anymore: MCCC and Meteor Eyes :joy: I just spent like an hour to edit MCCC settings to my own settings after I downloaded the latest version. I had to delete the teleporter mod as it's currently broken, too. What a pity... This patch is a disaster for mods and CC.

    I bet MCCC will always be up to date as deaderpool is behind it all the time. They have a patreon (where you can pay for early access) and I guess as long as this runs fine, they will keep up that awesome work.

    Everyone is qualified to have an opinion, especially when it comes to "I like this look" or "I don't like this look". That eyeliner is the worst. The other eyeliner is the "I messed up a lot and tried to smooth things out so now I look like a panda" eyeliner :joy: The subtle eye shadows are ok and the lipsticks are ok, too. In real life I only buy the lipsticks, too. I follow MAC on Instagram and the pictures they post are sometimes... let's call it extraordinary makeup :joy: But I still love the quality and variety in color of their lipsticks :love:

    Bah, yes. The extreme makeup will be on every townie after a festival :joy:

    You actually don't have to edit the settings every time! If you go into your MCCC folder with all the different modules and save 'mc_settings.cfg', then delete the old modules and download the new ones, you can drag the old settings file in and have your settings already inputted when you reopen the game. I recently discovered this and it has saved me so much time.

    @Queenarella I think maybe I have just grown to like the EA eyes because I'm accustomed to them. I try to stay clear of CC and mods (except MCCC and other mods if I really need them for e.g. bug fixes or those mods I downloaded for the bachelor challenge). I suppose you grow to like what you're used to. But some CC eyes are really pretty, I especially like the ones you use(d). When TS4 is over and no longer being updated I will likely go on a CC and mods shopping spree (because once there are no more patches CC and mods will no longer break). I expect then I will probably end up getting addicted to CC haha.

    Oh no not the teleporter mod! Good thing you finished the bachelor challenge already. I'm sure it'll be updated eventually.

    When I update my MCCC I usually leave all the old .cfg files and then my settings get saved (I think it says how to do this somewhere on Deaderpool's site).

    If deaderpool ever abandoned MCCC I would cry lol. I need my story progression!

    Oh yeah I hate that other eyeliner too. It's so bulky and rough looking. There was the two colour eyeshadow that I didn't like much but the other eyeshadows seemed fine. I kinda like to use understated makeup on my sims.

    Can't wait to see all my townies wearing that weird gem eyeliner with fishnet tights, eyeball rings, gloves, a top hat etc...

    By the way I really hope that my first comment about the eyes didn't make it sound as though I don't like the default CC eyes that you use - because I really do like them!

    Instead of saying that I prefer the EA eyes I should have said that I ALSO like the EA eyes because come to think of it I'm not sure which I do prefer.

    It's just I do kind of like the look of the EA eyes and I'm used to them so I don't use CC defaults myself because of all the hassle which comes with keeping CC/mods up to date.

    Sorry if that came across wrong on my first post. I'm having a bit of a horrible day. My puppy is very unwell and has been staying in the vets since Tuesday. We had a rather difficult conversation with the vets today and I guess I'm just not thinking before I speak/type right now.

    @RL As there's already another update for MCCC I can't thank you enough for this awesome tip! :love:


    @MaggieMarley I used to have tons of CC but deleted most of it. Some CC is just too hard to delete because I've grown to love it :D Even some hair I never use lol But the eyes I use are more than just CC I love. I can't look at my sims without those eyes :joy: That's something you read a lot! I think Kara also wants to wait until the game is finished and then shop CC. The thing is, you can still download broken CC that isn't updated yet...

    Yeah it will be eventually. And should it still be broken by the time I play the next bachelor or bachelorette, then I'll just try to get the contestants in line as smoothly as possible :joy:

    Yeah, RL said the same thing. I didn't know this... There's a 17.2.2 version now. This time, I won't delete the .cfg file ^^

    That will never happen :D At least I hope so.

    Understatement makeup is ok but those two eyeliners. One of them is not even an eyeliner as I define it :joy: The 🌺🌺🌺🌺 thingy.

    Oh yeah, that's gonna be soooo great! Not.

    I didn't read it like this at all! :) No worry!

    It's the first time since I've downloaded the eyes that they're broken :sweat_smile: The bad thing is, the modder is inactive. Great, isn, it? :bawling:

    Oh no! So sorry to hear this about your puppy! I hope it'll get better soon! <3



    Second edit now because it censored the word "🌺🌺🌺🌺" and then it uncensored it lol
  • MaggieMarleyMaggieMarley Posts: 3,610 Member
    @Queenarella I'm the worst at keeping things up to date! I hear people saying they have thousands of pieces of CC and mods and that always gives me second hand anxiety lol. I'd be so worried about things breaking and I'm way too lazy to update more than a few things after every patch. But I do often see CC that I like, especially clothes and hairs so when TS4 is over I might go a little mad with CC. I'll have to make sure it's all unbroken first though of course but then it can be in my game forever :)

    I'll have to do that too if it's still broken by then. Hopefully it won't be or if it is someone else will have made a teleporter mod.

    First time I updated MCCC in my game I deleted everything and then had to put my settings in again. It was a pain :D so glad you don't have to do that every time.

    The flower thingy? I'm curious to see what got censored lol. It's a shame because I wanted some more nice eyeliners in the game but instead they gave us... Those.

    I'm glad you didn't! Sometimes things can sound wrong over the internet so just wanted to make sure.

    Maybe someone else will fix the eyes and reupload them? That sometimes happens with broken mods. I'll cross my fingers for that!

    Putting stuff about our puppy in the spoiler because it's off topic (sorry don't want to derail your thread)
    He needs an operation but he's too weak. They want to put a feeding tube in him and I'm so worried :( I feel like it's my fault, but we've been taking him to the vets over and over for ages because he hasn't been eating well and they've kept brushing us off. Well now he is finally with specialists but I don't know if it's too late.
  • QueenarellaQueenarella Posts: 2,659 Member
    @MaggieMarley This much CC and mods is hard to maintain updated... Also, when I had this much cc I had many bugs in my game. There is soooo much beautiful CC, true! You'll love it :p

    As far as I know the modder is still active. The download site of the mod stated that it worked with DU that came out last year in November. We might be lucky and get it updated in the next few days :)

    For you it was only the first time, for me it was every time up to today :joy:

    What? Nooooo, it got censored again -.- It got censored, uncensored and now censored again! The bird with the weiner in his name :D peaco.ck. Poor thing lol

    I follow MAC on Instagram and they have tons of awesome eyeliners! Like the kinds of shapes they use on their models. And we get this...

    Nah it's totally fine :)

    A lot of simmers use Meteor Eyes, at least I see them quite often. Maybe someone else will pick them up and update them :) I googled a bit yesterday and noticed that some modders made heterochromia eyes with the Meteor Eyes. They need the Meteor Eyes as a mesh to have their own eyes work. So maybe one of those will update them? :)

    Oh no :/ It's not your fault! If anyone is to blame then the vets that brushed you off! My cats had issues where they didn't eat and that was always a sign they were sick. A vet that ignores this is not good at their job imo. I'm sure it won't be too late! <3

    You don't understand dead eyes until you play the game on laptop mode. XD

    @Queenarella When I think about all the CC and mods I'm going to have once TS4 is over it's enough to almost make me wish TS4 was coming to a close :D but I still don't think I want it to end just yet as much as I am curious about TS5... I wonder if that will be announced at EA Play after all?

    That's great! It's a popular mod too so I'm sure it'll be updated :)

    I bet you're glad you won't have to change all the settings for future updates!

    Haha I remember at school they had some sort of censorship program on the internet so that if you googled certain words the results were blocked. One of those words was peac.ock :D

    I saw somebody say that that eyeliner looks like what you get when you remove 'pea' from the word peac.ock ;)

    It's like they didn't put any effort into it :(

    If they're popular then I'm sure someone will make a version that's compatible with the latest patch :) ah heterochromia eyes... I wish we had those in TS4 without CC.

    Thank you, I really hope it'll be ok. They just kept saying he was acting well because he was so bouncy. Grrrrr very upset with how they dealt with this. Everything is quite scary right now.
  • QueenarellaQueenarella Posts: 2,659 Member
    @MaggieMarley There were rumors about TS5 being announced at the EA Play :# Not sure if I'm happy about this... And I'm not sure if I would like it to be a multiplayer online game :joy: That's a rumor I read quite often.

    It's THE mod B)

    Haha, yes ^^ I'm glad you two told me or else I would waste a lot of time over and over again :#

    We had a different censorship in school. Only certain sites like Facebook were blocked so we couldn't waste time there when we had to do research for a lesson :D The thing was when you googled facebook and clicked the link you could still go to the site :joy:

    Hm, I don't see this but it looks like a part of an uterus to me :joy: I hope this word won't be censored... In case: uter.us

    Yeah, seems this way. I've looked through a lot of pictures on the Instagram page and I've not seen the peaco.ck eyeliner. Some bolder eyeliners tho but not that bold :D

    I hope so, too! I used to have heterochromia eyes for my sims. Like a facepaint version tho. It was cool but I deleted it at some point. No idea why :sweat_smile:

    It's so hard when a pet falls sick. They can't tell us what's wrong, unless they behave differently. My old cat who died last autumn didn't show any symptoms that she was sick. I felt bad about thinking she's fine because she purred a lot... But our vet said that's not a sign a cat isn't sick. My current cat is a bit weird with food lately. Either she's just super picky (likely as she's a diva) or she's got something with her teeth. We'll take her to the vet soon as she'll need a trim anyway :D Long thick fur with lot of knotted hair and hot summer doesn't go well.

  • MaggieMarleyMaggieMarley Posts: 3,610 Member
    I heard the rumours about TS5 too! I don't know how I feel either.. Part of me would be really excited but part of me would be annoyed because I do really love TS4 and want more content for it. I definitely would not buy it if it was only (or mostly) multiplayer. I hope EA wouldn't be that dumb but who knows!

    Glad to have helped save you some time :)

    your censorship program sounds easier to get around than ours was haha.

    You're totally right, it does look like that! Now I can't unsee it :D

    Weird I wonder where the idea for that eyeliner came from then. Maybe EA just thought it would be easy to do or something.

    I wish they could talk :( would be so helpful if he could say why he doesn't want to eat! I'm sorry about your old cat, one of our cats died over the summer and it's so tough. I hope your current cat is ok, cats can be a bit picky sometimes but I think if they're a good weight and not showing other signs they tend to be fine. Wow your cat must be very fluffy!
  • QueenarellaQueenarella Posts: 2,659 Member
    @MaggieMarley Multiplayer online would be cool if there was an option to play offline, too. I don't want anyone to mess with my sims. Yeah that's the other thing. But I thought somehwere some SimGurus said there's so much more coming for TS4. Maybe the rumours are just rumours after all.

    Well, there was the second "censorship" tho. Our teachers could watch all our monitors on one screen. So they knew when we tricked the censorship and we got into trouble :#

    Sorry :joy: I only noticed it because of your comment what it knida looks like tho :p

    Maybe some MAC makeup artist went over the top or maybe I just missed it. There have been tons of livestreams on Instagram lately and I skipped them all lol But the pictures form it show the makeup artists wear very extraordinary makeup.

    Hm, I think it's good they can't talk. Cats would probably shoo us around like crazy and dogs would annoy us with constant love slurs :joy:

    She was already 16 so it was less hard. I cried like a baby when we took her dead body home from the vet tho...

    Lucy is suuuuper fluffy :D But she can't handle her fur. I watched her clean herself today and almost cried of laughter. So clumsy :D

    And she got used to being outside every day now as the weather was nice. But now it's grey, cold and rainy again so she's bored. I guess that might be the reason why she's a picky eater lately.
  • MaggieMarleyMaggieMarley Posts: 3,610 Member
    yeah I wouldn't mind having a multiplayer option so long as gameplay was still as good in offline mode. I don't think I'd want to play with other people for the most part.

    Haha ok I don't think we had that :D

    I don't keep up with makeup or even use instagram so I'm completely clueless. If that is a real makeup look though I don't like it haha.

    Oh yeah cats would be so bossy! My dog basically does talk... He barks and barks and barks for attention if you leave him for even a second.

    Ours was 15 when she died :(

    Awww I want a picture of Lucy!
  • QueenarellaQueenarella Posts: 2,659 Member
    @MaggieMarley Agree! It would be cool for challenges like the Bachelor Challenge but I can totally see people mess around there, too. What if you decide to play a date and someone else decides to join it because they are selfish? I would hate too much mulitplayer gameplay :#

    I've never seen someone in public wear that makeup. But a lot of makeup tutorials are over the top with colors and all. Like who goes out with rainbow colored eyeshadow up to the hairline? :joy:

    Some pets are just talkative :)

    That's about the normal age cats die of old age. Only few get older. I don't believe people saying their cat is 30+ years old lol Nope, their mom probably got them a new one when the old one died so they wouldn't notice :joy:

    I try to find a nice one where you can see her fluff and send it in a PM :) I don't like posting a picture of her publicly :#
  • MaggieMarleyMaggieMarley Posts: 3,610 Member
    Ohh I hadn't thought of that... It might be kind of fun if you could do a bachelor challenge with everyone playing their own sim. But yeah that might also make it a bit unfair because people might try to get extra time with the bachelor or something. And it would be hard to get everyone online at the same time. Probably single player is best even for things like this.

    I certainly don't! But then, I never wear makeup anyway :D

    I think I heard that the oldest cat ever was 38 or something! I wonder if that could be true but it seems super super old. I always think when people claim their hamster lived for 10 years or something that their parents must have replaced it with a new one when it died without them noticing. Maybe I'm just jealous because my oldest hamster still only made it to 2 years and 8 months old.

    Thank you for sending me the pictures of Lucy :) she is waaaaayyyy too cute <3
  • QueenarellaQueenarella Posts: 2,659 Member
    @MaggieMarley One of the best things about sims is it not being multiplayer :joy: I hope the devs know that.

    A normal lifespan of a hamster is 1.5 years. Cats normally live around 15 years, and with dog it depends on the size. Small dogs can live 20+ years, medium dogs about 15 years and big dogs die sooner at around 10 years. I don't believe people who say their pets are more than 10 years older than the average age :D It's not like 10 human years. Pets age differently and saying "my cat is 38 years old" is like saying "my grandma is 240 years old" :D

    She's cute but she can be a diva, picky and yesterday she bit me because I didn't pet her the way she wanted me to pet her -.- DIVA!
  • MaggieMarleyMaggieMarley Posts: 3,610 Member
    @Queenarella I hope they know that too!

    That's true about pet ages. I wonder if the supposed record holders for oldest cat/dog etc have any proof of their ages.

    Awww sounds like my old cat. Cats can be so funny :D
  • QueenarellaQueenarella Posts: 2,659 Member
    @MaggieMarley Let's hope for the best ^^

    Hm, I have no idea if you can prove a cat/dog is that much older than the average. It would be interesting to know tho.

    Cats are the best B)


    In case anyone wonders when the next chapter comes out... I have no idea. I haven't played the rest ouf round 2 yet because I didn't feel like it :# Bad excuse, really bad.
