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".

  • 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.
  • A mod on Patreon can be free as well. They're allowed to have it as "early access" for a fee (as Luthienrising has mentioned.) But why shouldn't making mods be a career? There are many who go by EAs rule to only charge the short "early access" fee and still are making a real life money as a "career."
  • They always do. That's because S4S when first released doesn't have the "valid digital signature" and since it's an executable, it can infect your computer if it wasn't what we know it is. I was able to download it yesterday and all my "virus" indicators said it was ok, so for a change I didn't have to fight with it to get…
  • You need to read the first page on this thread again: https://forums.thesims.com/en_US/discussion/993732/broken-updated-mods-cc-sept-21-spa-day-refresh-patch/p1 It specifically says that no mod which not "T for Teen" can be commented upon. That means only "SFW broken mods"! And it also is very clear about how you are to go…
  • I like the TS4 aspirations much better than the ones from the past. I know that in real life I've had many big aspirations. I don't want my Sims to be more limited than that like they were in TS3. It seems wrong to lose work on one aspiration when you switch to working on something else. I use aspirations all the time. I…
  • Have you asked on the S4S forum? I often find that when I have problems with S4S that I find others have already posted answers on there.
  • Aren't you afraid that they'll make it very much "not period-correct"? I didn't care for Sims Medieval because I have too much knowledge about the Middle Ages and I couldn't see it as being representative. And I certainly can't enjoy what the modders and CC creators have done that were supposedly "Medieval." (I love what…
  • People don't owe us that. She wasn't even active over on her own Discord until the Twitter thing came up. But Discord would have more information than you'd ever get here. (Her Discord is open to everyone. You might sign up over there so that you can keep up better.)
  • DLCs are necessary for me so that I can pick and choose what features I want to have in my game without having to resort to mods. I almost wish that they would divide things up more. For instance, I only have Vampires because I wanted the buy/build and CAS. I wish that I could have gotten them without the Vampires…
  • I did that several days ago but have heard nothing (even though I sent it to multiple Gurus.) Sigh.
  • No one is suggesting that they be completely removed. People are asking for a toggle so that they can choose to turn it off. And it's unreasonable to expect someone to "disable the EP" when there are so many other far more important things in the EP. What's surprising is that you bought it *for* the abductions.
  • As much as I wish people hadn't brought this thread back to life, it has shown that people are still upset about the fact that we *still* have no toggle to turn off something that can be so triggering to people. However, if you really are upset that something is "against the rules" the way to handle it is to report the…
