  • Thank you! Great to see you! Screenshot-8
  • Hello everyone! I'm just coming back to TS3 after being away for over a year and a half. Decided to play Isla Paradiso (because it's chilly winter where I live). This happened in my game yesterday. Eek! So creepy! lol
  • Well hey there, looks like y'all are pretty happy with TS4 these days. That's good, I guess! :D As for me, after months of struggling to like it or even play it without an expression of total distaste on my face, I finally gave up on it last Spring. Toddlers are cute but not enough for me to like the game. The game play…
  • Sorry to make you sad @CravenLestat! But it expresses how I feel about what they've done to the game, and how they tossed many of the old fans to the wayside. It makes me sad too! I don't visit this forum very often anymore - still playing TS3, just occasionally sharing elsewhere. But I do drop in from time to time and…
  • Hi, CravenLestat! How 'ya be? :) Unfortunately, that link is dead. @Gracefell try here to see if this is it, under Repulsively Desirous Creations: http://sims3graveyard.com/download.html
  • Hi y'all! Happy Halloween! I really don't celebrate H'ween any more but some do, so whatever. Happy Fall to those who don't. It's one of my fave times a year, although the weather has been so warm here that the colors of the leaves starting turning late. Hope they don't all blow off all at once in a strong wind. Fishing…
  • Hi everyone! Enjoyed the visit with my family very much. The week after they went home was very stressful because they live in FL and Irma was such a huge storm pretty much everyone in that state got something. Luckily the storm went a bit further west than predicted which was good for her since she lives just south of…
  • OK, thanks all for the info, really appreciate it. @Korset, if I wanted to move the cc to the new folder, would I just copy all of it that is in the CC Magic packages folder into the downloads folder of the new TS3 folder? Then sort/rebuild again? I thought of another question though about CC Magic, is there a fast and…
  • I am so mad a PhotoChuckIt! Ugh. Luckily I did switch to flickr a few years back but still - they'll probably be next to ruin all our pics! Hope everyone is doing OK. My nephew is coming up from FL to visit in less than two weeks and my sister will be coming a short time later. Planning on a mini family gathering at my…
  • I think she means not enough room to bury RH in basements when the lots are small and very close together. Honestly, with that kind of look - a small, closely built village - it would work best with RH rugs, IMO. But another option might be to place several types of commercial establishments on a larger lot where you might…
  • It depends on what kind of sim you play. Sims with high logic I know have an increased chance at being abducted. There are other traits but I don't have my game open to check with Retuner what they are. Also if your sim collects space rocks - if a space rock is in the inventory that will increase chances of being abducted.…
  • LOL igazor you just reminded me that one time I started a new TS3 folder and only had like 3 households in my sim library. I imported my NRAAS settings and suddenly I was seeing all these sims who were identical to the household I was playing - and they even had the same name, because there is an option for randomizing…
  • I started out with AwesomeMod as soon as it was released - it fixed a LOT of borked things that were in the game when it first came out - but eventually I switched to all the NRAAS mods and prefer those now. I have so much more ability to customize the game according to my preferences, and the mods don't mess with the core…
  • LOL at EA feature fixing a bug. Strange indeed! Glad you got it sorted out. And you don't have to apologize for something that bothers you. It's not up to anyone else to tell us what's a big deal or not. (Can't believe the rudeness of some people, jeesh.) I was wondering if she still had her college diploma in her…
  • RJ! Hi, it's great to see you! Hope to hear from you again soon. Sorry I'm not techie enough to recommend photo editing software - I'm so old school I usually just use MS Paint! :D
  • Can't you post your question at TSR? Seems like you would find more info from the folks who created the tool. I'm afraid I have never used TSRW so I have no idea, but the first thing I would check is to see if the version of it matches your patch level.
  • I really wish they had programmed certain actions to make all sims in the room sit down. Similar to how they did the wedding ceremony. Although that's not perfect (some sims insist on standing), and will only work with chairs categorized as dining chairs, it's one of the only things in the game that accomplishes this. It…
  • I think it was out a whole week before I went out and bought it. And that was unusual because I started simming late, and only picked up TS1 when TS2 was about to come out and bought TS2 after bundles appeared. Up to that point, TS3 was the only one I purchased right away and I liked it so much I never looked back. Happy…
  • @phoebebebe13 I totally agree that they should punish the fraudulent sellers and not the players. It's just easier for them to punish players, and besides if they can get them to purchase the game(s) again they make more money. Easy peasy. :# The only downloaded games that I have on my PC right now are from Steam. I've…
  • Yes, those pics were awesome @Karritz! @Avatarit the Sims 3 Store is closed, I'm afraid. I think it's extremely doubtful that they will ever make any more content for TS3.
  • We're all just leasing games and EULA's clearly state that everything associated with the game belongs to EA. So no worries about incorporating mods into a new game on that front. This is why there was (and in some quarters still is), a huge deal made about whether modders should be paid for their efforts. That said, HOLY…
  • Yes, I already know all this. Except I *do* believe that Origin was developed in part to stop piracy (and to get rid of disks and stop the second hand games market, to make color-by-numbers games based on data mining, yada yada). TS3 came out long before they finished developing Origin and that's the only reason why it was…
  • I do not believe that they created Origin to compete with Steam. There is no way that they can actually "compete" with Steam. Origin has just a fraction of games compared to Steam. But what they can do is to prevent Steam from getting a portion of profits that would go solely to EA by creating their own client that sells…
  • I don't know of any other way to do that other than to restore a backup, I'm afraid. I'm sorry I didn't see this thread earlier as I would have warned you right away as soon as you said you were planning to delete the contents of that folder. :/ As far as the lagging you are experiencing, you should start a new thread…
  • Besides serving as their DRM, another purpose to Origin was to shut down the second hand games market, which cuts into their profits. All software companies claim that what you purchase is a "service" and not a "product" that you own. They have taken this literally with their latest sims game with patches containing 'free'…
  • Even with that mod, they will talk with each other rather than to watch a presentation. And eventually they will finish their coffee and go on doing their own thing. But that does seem to be the easiest solution anyone has come up with so far. (And on the bright side at least they aren't as spastic as another similar game…
  • The flickering is annoying. I'm not sure there is anything that can stop it. @siminsc are you saying that you downloaded the lot and the tracks didn't work from the start? If so it's a shame the builder didn't check that. What do you mean when you say that you can't match up the broken parts of it? You do have to play…
  • If you delete your dcbackup folder contents, then any Store content you put into your builds will not export into your Sims3pack and therefore won't appear on the lot when others download it. Since I know you are a builder I thought I should paraphrase what igazor said in case you missed that part.
  • I just wanted to give a heads up to those of us who love the recipes and new plants mods/CC. @Icemunmun has just posted a wonderful new collection of recipes and plants HERE. So far my sims have only tried out the Almond Madeline but I sent one to the grocery to stock up on ingredients. Thank you again, @icemunmun! :)
  • Building comes much easier to me when I have a specific building in mind before I start. I like to use floor plans for houses (lots of sites online for that) or will look for pictures on the Internet and try to build something I like. I get a kick out of attempting to make my sim build look as closely like the picture as I…
