Someone posted an image place that I can finally use: ImgBB.com. It's more like the old Photobucket site that I used to use "back in the old TS2 days." However, I did use a password I've never used anywhere else, just in case! Now I too have a way to post photos to the forum. Not that I do screenshots that often, but it does look like fun. Especially all the "honeybee" shots that people have been posting in the "Honeybee Party".

  • Some creators keep their Patreon *and* another site. Their Patreon is always locked to pay only, but their other site has everything for free. I've found that many times when people say "this creator *never* unlocks their stuff."
  • Both are correct but the Mod the Sims may not be the most direct.
  • From everything I've read, the reason they are going with the manager is so that people who are not comfortable with computers will have an easier time putting CC in their game. So if you are "terrible with computers" that's the way you'll want to go. I'm not sure if it would be wise to do so during the beta phase. You may…
  • While this is early for a *Sims* game to be announced, it's getting to be the norm for far more than indie games to announce that they are in production early. It seems from what they've shown us so far that they are still at the development stage, not even at the alpha stage. There is a lot more work to come!
  • The best way to check for broken mods is to look at the listing at the beginning of this thread. Luthienrising keeps it up to date. There are also lots of instructions for checking. If you want to know if a specific mod is a problem, then try it in your game without *any* other mods, and make sure to delete the…
  • I love that idea of getting a new world. Thanks for the Friday Highlights! It's fun to see what others are doing (without having to sift through it all myself.)
  • I bought the game when it first came out, but didn't actually play it until I got a new video card (as TS4, unlike TS3, always crashed before that.) I think it's great that people are going to get the chance to play it. I suspect that they'll buy the DLCs before long. That means there will be more Sims players to get to…
  • Frankly, the forum hasn't been the major source of TS4 news for years. This forum is almost *always* days (and sometimes longer) behind what you can find out on Twitter.
  • Most of the internet security programs (Windows, MacAfee, Norton, etc.) all will report S4S as being malware. It's because the version is so new. It happens with every update. (But I found that if I wait a day, which I often don't want to do, it will finally be accepted as not being "malicious.")
  • Many of the modders have been quitting lately but those haven't been due to this policy because it predates the policy change. Arnie, for instance, has quit modding so that he can build his own business.
  • That's unfortunately part of the game coding. You can stack things but they don't stay. You'll also see that when you do things like make a walk-in wardrobe that is more than 2 stacks high. HeyHarrie made a video about some of her work and how to get around that "feature" that is in the game:…
  • I'm 68 and have been playing The Sims since the day I pre-ordered SimCity4. The sales clerk suggested it, since I was getting SC4 (and had played those since SimCity the original on Amiga). I had avoided it because all the promos showed Sims hitting other Sims. Not my thing. But the clerk, when I mentioned that, said that…
  • On their Discord, they said that they work fine together so far, although it may get a lot more chaotic. They ask that if you do have problems, you should come to the Discord and post in one of the support channels. (Remember that their support does not allow NSFW mods to be in what you show them.)
  • Did you know that you get the slow dance option on the stereos even if you don't have a dance floor? They work on any stereo (even the wall-hung ones in lounges or the little ones a teen might have in their room.)
  • In a "no mod" setting, my weddings last far longer than 6 hours. I finally started canceling as soon as they'd done what I wanted them to do, which seems to work fine. (Otherwise, they seemed to never end even when it was time to go to work the next day.) They still get the "move in" option once it's canceled. I've worked…
  • They certainly do suck! Especially if you can't hide in a dark room for 3 days until they're over. Thank you for all the work you do on this. You shouldn't have to work on it when you've got a migraine!!!
  • I think there is a typo here. Isn't the patch coming today February 15 (since the pack is coming February 17th)?
  • You're welcome. I'm glad to have helped! I still remember my shock when I went back to my legacy family and realized what had happened to them. And then to see all the neighbors in their underwear. (I am not fond of that orange bikini at all.) Since then I've gone through all my CC using Sims4Studio to make sure that all…
  • I am so looking forward to this pack. I had a lot of reservations when I heard the name (similar to some of the concerns I've read in this thread) but with each "leaked" photo and list of "key features", I'm more and more comfortable and much more excited. Weddings are one of my favorite things in the game. I mostly play a…
  • It's hard when you want multiple things from that list. I think that I really want Slow Dancing the most though. I can get by with the CC I have for wedding dresses and the like (although I'd *love* to see more wedding dresses as well as veils, especially long veils.) I also want more parties (such as bachelor/ette…
  • They might still include it in a basegame update. Then there wouldn't be any reason for them to include it in the "key features" for the game pack.
  • Happy 22nd Birthday!!! I was a "bit" late to TS1. I started playing after I bought it the day I also pre-ordered my SimCity4. (I'd been playing versions of SimCity since it came out on the Amiga platform. The version on Amiga was *much* better than the one they released at the same time for PC.) I'd actually avoided TS1…
  • Not such a noob question! If you open that save while your mod folder is pulled, it will remove any and all CC outfits so that when you next open that save, they'll all be in their underwear (including the townies that have picked up on modded clothes. I've "been there, done that." I'd like to help you avoid that problem.)…
  • I play generationally (on long life). No occults. I suspect you'd say their life is "romanticized" because I want them to live their best lives. I try to make their lives as interesting and fulfilling with as little "drama" as possible. (I have enough drama in my real life. I want to see happy Sims as a balance. It's why I…
  • I definitely agree with this!! People talk about wanting their Sims to have more "personality" but those same people don't seem to use the aspirations and whims at all. They want it to all come from traits (and some are even ignoring the likes/dislikes which are definitely also part of personality). But for me aspiration…
  • I like to switch them up. Like me, my Sims are not "Johnny One Notes" who only do one thing for their entire lives. They have a "main aspiration" (that I go back to so that I can have them specifically work on it) but then if they're doing an activity that will earn part of an aspiration, I'll switch to that one. I too…
  • I love playing. But I don't care for "drama." I want their lives to be as perfect as possible. Mostly I play my "legacy" (long term) family, but that save has a lot of CC. So when an update comes out, I play for a while on a new save without any CC/mods. (That also lets me see if there are any bugs/glitches in the game…
  • I just wish that there had been more moderation of the chat. I saw some things being taken down but not all the toxicity. I wish people would realize that even if something isn't to your taste, it doesn't mean that it isn't something that *others* have been begging to have. So many people saying "this isn't masculinity"…
  • Welcome back!!! I hope your vacation was lovely!
  • Agreed. They should follow the rules and release it for free within the EA rule time frame. But they should be able to have the early access time.
