    They use Ad.Fly because it pays them for the advertising but a lot of times the advertising is filled with malicious stuff. It's just a way to profit from creating stuff for the game. I'll send you the three files I have in a PM. Michael has a friend that creates for Sims4. At some point he's agreed to come here and teach me how to mesh clothing. Mostly I just want to learn so the in-game outfits I like, but are too short for my taste, I can lengthen. BUT if I do get good at it and I do make my own original stuff, the one thing I will NOT do, is deny permission to include the mesh. The other thing I've come across is absolutely beautiful cardigans, BUT they are in the *accessory* category. That makes little sense to me, although I think I know why.....you can't put 2 tops on top of each other so this is a way to get around that. Still not sure if I want to recolour those.

    GAH!! I found two lovely outfits but the size is not 1024 X 2048. NO!. For reasons I do not understand the size is 2048 X 4096.... The another one I absolutely love shows up great in the game, but not in S4S. I even messaged the creator because some did some recolours and I can't figure out how they managed to do that, when I can't get it to show up to recolour at all. So far, no response. Then there are the creations I just HAVE to have, hidden behind ad.fly. I can get around that but it's frustrating. I hate when creators use ad.fly and then also have this box come up that claims you have to *whitelist* their site in order to continue on to get the download. I figured out a way around that annoyance too. However that might make it difficult for someone else to figure out, so if it is, I'm going to let them PM me for the mesh. No one should have to *whitelist* ANY Sims creation site. That can open up your computer to malicious software and damaging viruses. To me, doing that is downright nasty. I do have some stuff that is finished and as soon as this cold lessens it's grip I'll be uploading them. It's just that this constant sneezing and coughing is making an awful mess on my screen. I know...TMI

    A First for Me

    I tried some new recipes and they were so good. Roasted honey glazed baby carrots, a deep dish apple pie and cut up seasoned potatoes. All of them are now added to our regular meal rotations. This Christmas I also made the turkey stuffing in the crock pot and it was awesome. Instead of stuffing the turkey with the usual bread stuffing, I put a cut up onion, 2 chopped up apples, some orange zest and salt and pepper, with some pats of butter. The turkey came out super moist and really tasty. I have to be honest though and tell you my gravy didn't ever thicken. Yeah, Christmas dinner and NO gravy......👎 I wasn't going to let my gravy go to waste, so I put it in the slow-cooker, added all the turkey bones, 2 cans of chicken broth and 1 cup of water and let that cook on low overnight. Took all the bones and globs of fat out in the morning and made turkey soup. I added a bag of mixed vegetables, and Dave added some pearl barley and we let that cook on high for 3 hours. Then Dave boiled some egg noodles and added them to the mixture. Apparently now this is the turkey soup that Dave wants from now on. I'm going to have to make two versions the next time because in place of the barley and noodles, I prefer wild rice. Somewhere on the internet I found some cool ideas for pork chops too. We used to always have them with applesauce on the side, but next time we have them, I'm going to bake them on a bed of brown rice sprinkled with cinnamon and raisins. We also replaced the applesauce on the side with apple butter. Wow, we loved that. I've also been looking into getting an *Instapot* I've done a lot of research and found some really tasty sounding recipes.

    Thanks to Rebecah I now know how to make my recolours show up as 1 item with selectable colours. What a huge improvement over every outfit showing up individually. I also discovered that when doing unisex clothing you have to select the female catalogue picture and save and then do the same for the male catalogue picture. It's been a bit of a learning curve for me but I think I have things figured out now. I also have quite a few Sims2 outfits to finish up in bodyshop so I expect to be fairly busy for the next couple of months with uploads. Michael gave me a thumb-drive so he gets the stuff before anyone else. Kinda makes him my guinea pig.

    We didn't make it to the party. The dispatchers at Dave's work messed him all up. They knew about his party and then made him go on another run. He was so angry when he got home, he refused to do any runs between Christmas and New Year's. He's been home for nearly 1 week......

    I am choosing the Sims4 CAS, so what is my problem and how do I fix that cause I have more stuffs. I feel like such a bother today. Don't worry about getting back to me until after Christmas, as Christmas is almost here and everyone is so busy getting ready. On Monday I am pre-cooking the vegetables, potatoes and making devilled eggs. Oh I almost forgot, have to make the family Christmas pudding or Dave will be disappointed. On Christmas Day, all I have to do is make the stuffing, put it in the bird and then bake the turkey. Dave also loves apple pie and I found a recipe that looks very tasty, so we may have 2 desserts. You can never have too much food at Christmas

    Version - Sims 4


    So....after driving Rebecah my brain kicked in and I got these right. They are recolours of the Holiday Sweater using mana-tea sims patterns as inspiration. They show up correctly as one item with recolours, not individual items. They are a match with the Male's Holiday Sweaters using the light colours for the women and the darker colours for the men. They should be pretty toasty for the Winter Season and I hope your Simmies like them. A huge to mana-tea Sims for the inspiration and to Spoonflower for the patterns. An even bigger to Rebecah for her patience in teaching me how to do these the right way. May all of you have a healthy, happy and Blessed Christmas.

    I also edited the file to take out the link.

    When I clicked on the link it went right to the sweater, the male is wearing a plain red sweater and the female has on an orange coloured trim with a pattern sweater. The major problem with Sims 4 stuff is that the creators do not want their meshes included and as much as I dislike that policy I have to respect it. What I will do, is if the mesh turns up no longer available, I will send it via a PM.
  10. Version - Sims 4


    I have uploaded a corrected version where the sweaters show as one item and selectable recolours. Sorry about that. Finally I have something. It's one-half of a set for Females and Males and this is the Males sweaters recolours that I made. Jake 🐕 would like you all to know that he helped by constantly begging to get on the desk I hope your Sims guys will love staying all warm and cozy in this Winter Season. Thank you to S4S for their amazing tool to create Sims4 content, and a special thank you to Spoonflower for all the patterns I use. May all of you and your friends and family enjoy a happy, healthy and Blessed Christmas.

    You made me so loud, I woke up Jake. Things have been so busy here, been trying some new recipes and I am actually going to a party tomorrow with Dave. I have to make honey-garlic meatballs and I also want to make my tuna-macaroni salad and deviled eggs. Dave's friend Paul was in a horrible accident and for a few days it was touch and go. He's recovering but it's going to be a long process and the party is for him and his wife. When Dave had his accident with his bike, Paul came to his rescue. I kinda want to also make some lasagna for them to take home so one day when Sandy is not wanting to cook, they have a home-cooked meal.

    I have never ever blown up anything in my microwave......until tonight. The honey had hardened in it's container and I had made cornbread and wanted some to drizzle on it. So I got Michael to put the honey in the microwave and told him 2 minutes instead of the usual 20 seconds. Then we heard this weird bang, lo and behold the container of honey SPLODED! Michael and I cleaned up the mess and I am still laughing about it.

    Just to keep you all informed, I have been quite busy reorganizing my pattern collection. I have discovered that it is actually a lot more extensive than I had thought. I'm in the process of downloading TheSims2 Ultimate Collection, having uninstalled Sims4 to correct a glitch between package files and my PSP program. Once Sims2 is installed, then I am going to re-install Sims4 and see if my problem has gotten resolved. I am hoping that the re-installation of Sims4 can be completed by this coming weekend. Then I hope to resume uploading content for both games. However, with regards to Sims4, I will only upload EA content and NOT any creator content. Most of the creators for Sims4 have a TOU that states you are not allowed to upload their mesh with your recolours. Some TOU's even do not allow you to recolour the item at all. What does one do if they like the mesh but the colour choices leave a great deal to be desired? Oh c'mon, we have all come across a wonderfully designed mesh but wouldn't use that particular pattern to dust our coffee table with....Personally I find that kind of TOU simply too restrictive. Any recolour of any mesh is a sincere compliment to the original creator because you actually have to really love that mesh to want to put in the work and thought and time to recolour it. A different pattern or a different texture can really have an effect on some clothing. Affinity has a policy of including the mesh in with the recolours to make things easier for our members. I personally will not send our members hither and yon in search of meshes that have a habit of disappearing after a time. It is frustrating and time consuming. I have always given credit to the original mesh and creator. In fact I have *fangirled* several creators that just make me swoon with their fabulous creations. Anyone that knows me knows that I only recolour things I am deeply enamored with. Certainly all of my recolours have been my way of honouring the original creator in the case of ALL recolours I have done for Sims2. It's also been my belief that once you download anything that I recoloured it then belongs to you, the downloader. If you like it but want to embellish it, tweak it or even add something to it, then by all means feel free to do so. I'm tickled pink if you have something I recoloured in your game. Even after all this time it still gives me a thrill when something I've done is downloaded. I have hundreds of CC for Sims4 but due to the restrictive TOU's I cannot share them. I will do private recolours within my area of capability if I am sent PM's requesting them, but I cannot post them for general downloads and for that I am truly sorry. At the end of the day this is really just a game we play for whatever reasons we choose to play. Anything that is made to enhance our play is a bonus. For people like me who cannot quite grasp all the intricacies of creating, then recolouring can give us immense satisfaction and a real sense of achievement. In fact I prefer to recolour rather than play the games. When experimenting with different patterns, and combinations of patterns I feel like I can change an everyday dress into a garden party type dress. Sometimes it even works that different textures can change an everyday dress into an alluring evening dress. You can add a shiny belt or a jewelled belt and get a totally different outcome. I've used embroidered images I found on the internet that I put on pillows to make them unique. The fact is design possibilities are endless and only restricted by one's own unique taste. That's what makes this so much fun for me. Thanks to Rebecah for taking me under her wing and teaching me to recolour I can finally give back to a community that has given me so much enjoyment. I have had some health issues and some family issues that have had an unwanted affect on the time I have had to make things to upload but with the prayers from my Affinity Family and with God's grace most of those issues have been resolved. I still have a very demanding dog that needs my time and attention but in the last year and a half, we have gone from a 5 cat household to a one cat household and those passings have left me bereft at times. And now for a wee bit of comic relief....I don't pay any attention to my birthday or my age and someone asked me recently how old I would be this year. To my utter shock I had no idea, so out came the calculator (I never was any good at math) I'm 58, I'll be 59 this September and then the BIG OLE 60 next year. Seriously I didn't think I was that old.... because I almost said I was 54 or 55. The not being good at math is no joke, I failed it my senior year in high school and by failed, I mean miserably failed! And yet I worked in the banking industry for 23 years and was very good at my job. Go figure.....
