  1. @NeverForsaken, that picture is just hilarious. LOVE IT, even if it is a glitch.
  2. I'm dying
  3. Well then RubberMan, start uploading them!!
  4. This just randomly appeared when my internet lost connection.
  5. You got rid of Goopy? Or whatever his name is....
  6. RetailSims might have stuff as well.
  7. I found this image at Spoonflower and thought maybe someone would want to use it for a pub sign, or whatever....
  8. Oh dear, I'm late. I'm so sorry. I hope your special day was wondrous with delicious cake and tons of presents.
  9. OK, Never4saken....You absolutely MUST upload this house! If you can also upload the CC in it's own folder, I'd appreciate it. I LOVE THIS HOUSE!! I WANT THIS HOUSE!!
  10. Ok, I admit Dave and I are a tad bit on the weird side. But today was just weirder than usual. He got the groceries and was looking for the milk pitcher.....I told him to look for it in the *middle of messy* I have no idea where that came from. It just popped out. Just now Jake was tormenting Squeak, an everyday occurrence, so nothing weird there. Then Dave comes over to me with a patch of Squeak's hair he removed from Jake's mouth. He hands it over to me and tells me to place it in evidence. I happen to have an empty plastic bag on my desk, so I put the patch of hair in it. According to Dave he is the *Investigator* and I am the crime lab employee who analyzes the evidence. The crime is *Hair Pulling*, the victim is Squeak and the perpetrator is Jake. I have no clue when this will culminate in a trial as we don't know who will be the judge and Jake has no money for a lawyer. You don't have to be crazy to live here, but it sure does help.
  11. Dave had only Sunday off....so I have this very puppy. Dave left about an hour ago and I thanked him for stopping in to visit us. My slipper has just been pried off my foot and Jake is very busy killing it. Once he is satisfied that it is well and truly deceased he will come back for the other one. It's uncomfortably warm outside today and Jake will only go out to do his business and then wants back in as soon as he is finished. The thing is, for such a little guy he has to pee like 80 times in the morning and one of them takes forever. I can be doing the pee dance myself, but if it's that long pee he won't stop until he's peed out a lake. I thought I was being kind when I put some ice cubes in the water bowl, Pip thought they were fun to swish around in the bowl but Jake didn't want them in there. It was a bit like watching a kid bob for apples..... Once he got them all out, he let out this huge snort and I got that look.....the one your dad gave you when you were a kid to let you know he was disappointed in you. Mostly I just think he didn't like the water going up his nose.
  12. I don't think those are common here. If it has a pool table in it here, it's called a pool hall. Gayers, I'm not even sure I want to know what a *dirty* beer is....
  13. yep, You Tube. So after hours on Skpe with gayers and RubberMan, my issues are resolved.
  14. OK, it's been forever since I was in game for Sims2. My screen size comes up as 800X600, is there anyway to change that? To play in windowed mode, do I just add -w at the end of *The Sims2 Ultimate Collection* shortcut on my desktop? SimPE is up and running and I did a test recolour and it went just fine. Next I have to do a bodyshop recolour test and then I will be all set to do things for both Sims2 and Sims4. You have no idea how weird this is for me, when I first came here I didn't know how to do anything and now I know how to do things for 2 games. I find that somewhat mind-boggling.
  15. Windows10 dislikes a lot of things. I am looking forward to some awesome creations!!
  16. I don't think we have pubs like you do in Britain, we do have what we call bars and we got lots and lots of them. There is only 1 pub I know of in our area where you can get a fantastic meal and then stay for the band later on, or whatever entertainment they have going on that night.
  17. I'm thinking that too. I let the store where I bought it get it ready for me.
  18. 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.....
  19. The thing is he honestly has the cutest burps. Every once in a while he lets one out that has been percolating for quite some time and they tend to be on the loud side, but mostly they are just tiny, cute burps. Also, he usually only burps when we are eating, that's his signal for "Please Sir, may I have some more?" (*blatant Oliver Twist reference*) The bigger burps are reserved for when we don't give him more, or he's missing Dave. He'll walk over to the baby-gate and let out this huge burp, then sigh loudly, and then lay down and pout. Thankfully he saves his *floofs* for his daddy. He get's comfy laying on top of Dave with his butt usually pointed towards Dave's face and then *FLOOF* For such a wee dog, he can clear a room in under 5 seconds. Sometimes Dave is just too tired to move so he just pulls the blanket over his head. I aim my fan in Dave's general direction. Desperate times call for desperate measures.
  20. OK, I'll go on and check it out.
  21. I GIVE UP! I have spent 4 hours trying everything that was suggested and NOTHING works. I can't even get the darn game to run in windowed mode and I tried everything suggested for that too. The only solution for me is to make the stuff here on the laptop, transfer the Sims2 stuff to my desktop, stick it in my game, take the needed pictures and then upload it from the desktop. I did everything step by step and some things aren't even available to me on this laptop. I have no idea why and am sick of trying. I am so far beyond frustrated and angry that I am not going to try anything else. It's just making me angrier and angrier.
  22. OK, I've done everything all of you have suggested and nothing works, some things can't even be done with Windows10 as it doesn't give me the option.
