Back to TS3

Posted: February 26, 2012 in Sims 3

So I’ve taken a bit of a break from The Sims for a while. I’m still extremely put off by the direction that EA are taking the game and I knew that there would be a catch to opting out of Simport. EA has never been considerate enough to think about people that want nothing to do with it whatsoever so it seems that my earlier beliefs will be coming true: Simport is going to be an unavaoidable pain in the backside that will both be introduced with Showtime AND the update patch. Wonderful. Cheers for that EA.

Anyway enough about that. I bought Lunar Lakes and had a bit of a play around in there. Unfortunately while I love the overall design of the neighbourhood I hated the buildings; I feel like  EA really copped out when they made a bunch of different portal rabbit holes instead of putting in proper, unique designs so I found the town a little bland in that sense. Fortunately those portals come in handy for making my own custom lots as they actually fit in the basements – yay!

While I’m not using Lunar Lakes now, I was inspired to make some more ‘alien’ sims.

Alright lady, WHAT is your problem!?

…alright so playing a band is boring as hell and I wanted to try out a new world so I made a new sim and slipped him in. My GOD the drama, I’ve never had moments like this in the game before and I must say I found it both infuriating and hilarious all at the same time.

This is my new sim, Heine:

Well on his first night out on the town he happened across this young and very attractive woman and they hit it off really well, they danced a little, had a couple of drinks… it all seemed like it was progressing nicely. Then out of no where the psycho just unloads on him and yells at him for doing absolutely nothing! It wasn’t as though they disliked one another or that he kept doing interactions with her that she didn’t like, it was totally out of the blue.



But I decided to forget about it, the club was closing and daylight was threatening to break so I sent Heine home for some sleep. I was convinced that he was never going to hear from this girl again since she’d quite obviously flipped her lid about something and thought little more of it. A couple of days later he just finishes work and he gets a call from her inviting him to her party.

I decided to send him there since I wasn’t planning on doing anything else with him that night, who knows maybe she was going to apologise. So he gets there and chats to her, then again completely out of the blue she unloads on him, ranting and yelling… then tells him he’s being inappropriate and has to leave!

Needless to say Heine really likes this girl and he persists but it seems like any time it seems like he’s about to get somewhere with her she just does another 180 and throws a fit at him.

Things are looking up now, but good god what was her problem!? I’m used to creating drama in my sims lives but this is the first time I’ve had the game create drama for me without any nudging on my part. Geez.

They’re currently boyfriend and girlfriend for anyone whose curious, but goodness knows how long THAT’S going to last if she keeps up with this nonsense. My guy may well be the sweet and kind hearted type but he’s not about to put up with some broad giving him crap all the time. There are plenty of other ageless vampiric beauties out there.

LOL You’re doing it wrong!

Been playing on my band… waiting for my first gig for what feels like forever. I had to re-start them because my game decided to throw a bitch fit and wasn’t happy until I started a new game. Yay, that is promising so I was a bit fed up because I was having to skill them up again while still waiting for my first gig… then I saw this and it made me chuckle:

Trying out the bands

Posted: January 20, 2012 in Sims 3

So while I’m on the hunt for my TS2 disks I decided to try something I haven’t actually done yet in TS3; make a band.

Their names from left to right: Ryuichi Hao (Guitar), Kimi Otami (Drums), Saito Kirishiki (Bass) & Tony Stark (Keyboard).

I spent ages trying to find a suitable apartment for them. I wanted it to be basic living but at the same time have enough space for all of them so it wouldn’t be too crowded, I finally found one and re-furnished it. **This lot isn’t mine, I had nothing to do with the room layout or even the furniture layout for the most part, I just changed the style of furnishings**

 

Ban Revoked

Posted: December 19, 2011 in Sims 3

Someone finally got back to me and acknowledged that I had been wrongly banned and has revoked it. They even appear to have reset my account; my old Nathan Drake avatar was back on display and even the offending sim that they removed was mysteriously back in my studio.

I removed him anyway mind you, not tempting fate and encouraging another sod to report me for no frigging reason.

They actually released my account a couple of days ago, but I’ve been a bit busy and couldn’t be bothered logging back into it XD

30 Day Ban – WTF!?

Posted: December 12, 2011 in Rant, Sims 3

I’ve been banned for a month.

Apparently somebody did not like the image I selected for my latest sim and despite the fact that I have absolutely no record and thought that as the game was rated teen somebody holding up the middle finger wouldn’t be bad I’ve been given a 30 day ban. Funny isn’t it that people can post naked women all over the place but I post a little rebellious picture to tie in with my sim and I’m penalised for a whole fucking 30 days, no warning, nothing. So thank you to the little shitbag that reported my image. Thank you so much. ¬¬

Edit: Eh. Whatever. I was mad this morning but now that I think about it I don’t think I can be bothered contesting it. The EA forum has become so cliquey anyway. It seems that these days nobody is going to comment on anything that you do unless you’re with the ‘in’ crowd. I suppose in retrospect the ban is the straw that broke the camel’s back. I don’t know why I always go back to that place, it always ultimately ends up pissing me off.

I suppose it’s the traffic that appeals to me, but when said traffic is mostly built up of the same people patting one another on their back while ignoring anybody else that isn’t in their little group I have to wonder what the point is. It probably doesn’t help that as a whole I had about a month + long blackout period where I just wasn’t interested in simming or the community in the slightest.
