Random Sim blabbering.
I created a new neighborhood. Actually, I didn't create it, I downloaded. Normally, I'm usually very picky with the things I download, and still kinda am (except for hacks, which I love). Basically, I hate building houses. I love furnishing houses, and putting up wallpaper and floors and such, but I just hate building the shell. I get so uninspired. My best work was a year or so ago, which isn't really much better than what I can make now. I'm just not patient enough. So, I basically just started downloading houses. I still don't like custom content as far as furniture, floors, walls, skins, hair color, hair styles, etc goes. I'm okay with downloading houses. In fact, I love downloading houses. I found some real gems lately.
I use a nifty program called The Sims 2 Custom Content Manager. I use it to delete the custom content that comes with the houses (such as walls and floors). Of course, it'll revert the used content to something default, which is fine, because I think I'm good when it comes to designing and color coordinating.
Also, I learned how to modify the Wants.package and WantsTuning.package so I can lower the standards for lifetime wants, which I think are too high with certain wants. How can I make a Sim fuck 20 others? I can cheat with InSIM, but I don't swing that way. I use InSIM to change aging to how I want it to, speed pregnancy, and careers. Sometimes I use it to modify relationships that I think will screw up my plans, but not often. I don't use it to fulfill lifetime wants.
For instance, the lifetime wants I wanted to change were the 20 best friends one. I changed it to 10. The 5 top level businesses are impossible, so I changed it to 1, since 1 will take up a good amount of time to consider it a lifetime want. I adjust others.
Bon Voyage is official. To be honest, I wanted to see a Makin' Magic EP. Or even a Superstar EP. But I liked Vacation too, so it's fine. So let's see, that's six EPs. So, if they follow the same trend as TS1, there might be a final seventh. They're already working on TS3, which I'm fine about. Everyone who I told this to asked me what's going to be changed/improved. I said that I don't know, since information probably won't be out until 2008. Hm.
I want to get a new graphics card. And a printer, keyboard, mouse, and a microphone. But this isn't Sims stuff, so yeah.
THAT IS ALL.
