I'm thinking of switching over to maxis match hair. I mostly play maxis match anyway with objects and clothing and stuff. I love love love pooklet's colours, but not all hair creators use the colours I prefer to have. Maxis match seems like it would be easier with them all being the same shades and stuff. Plus this hair defaulting project of [ profile] allisas is really tipping the scales for me. The less hairs I have to scroll through the better and so many maxis hairs are just way too fugly for me to use. It also seems like most my fav hair meshes/creators have been made maxis match, especially stuff by [ profile] trappingit.

Thoughts? Which do you prefer? Does it even really matter to anyone?

Well its been awhile since I've had to re-install the sims. Its kind of funny because I still remember parts of the registry codes. There is a good reason for re-installing though. I now have a 240gb SSD. WOO!! No more 10 minute loading times. My computer itself boots up in 40 seconds. I am a happy clam.

ETA: It takes ~3 mins to load my game into the neighbourhood. Now I don't have enough time to eat a 5 course meal while it loads. :p

I just spent yesterday and this morning here and sorting out which defaults I wanted and sorting out conflicting files. There are so many great things there, but I started to wonder if it would have been easier to just hide all the maxis clothes I despise and just download the CC outfits and townified them all. Too late now, all is done and conflict free I hope. I also got some ideas of defaults I might make, and it reminded me of some I already made and didn't share. I hate taking preview pictures, so that is the main reason some of them didn't get posted here. Maybe if I find the energy I'll share the rest of what I have and make some more.

And for some reason the LJ post entry page layout is fubar'd right now, bah.

I have two more updates for Sterling Falls left of my buffer. Its currently too nice to be sitting around inside on the computer so I'm going to hold off posting them for a little bit. I wont wait so long that I forget what happened and why I took the shots I did though. I might consider gaming at night, but usually after dinner I'm ready to wind down with a movie or something. Otherwise I won't be playing again until the next rainy day (in Southern B.C. this doesn't happen very often).

To make this post a little less boring have a picture of a ruby-crowned kinglet. :)

I've got a bit of a cold, so here you go, have a picture of something that makes me happy.

I'm going to try a different screen capture program called Lightscreen. Fraps seems to have a delay when I screen capture since getting my new video card. Not sure what the issue there is, so I'm going to see if the problem still exists with this program as well. I'll let you guys know what I think of it. :)

ETA: Looks like Lightscreen is like Gadwin and would require me to run in compatibility mode. Too annoying. I also tried several other programs and they're all crap from what I've seen. Most of them work like gadwin and others I couldn't get to work at all. Guess I'll stick with Fraps, I just have to remember to wait a second before moving the mouse so my screenshots don't get fucked up. :(

I'm sure some of these legacies and BACC entries out there are really good and entertaining and what not. But when I see a picture that has had the shit edited out of it I just can't even force myself to click on the cut to try and read it. Its the sims people, please let it alone already. It doesn't need to be crazily sharpened or have some other effect done to it. It just makes things look crappy and uninviting. Just saying!

My game has been throwing errors ever since I started playing Sterling Falls. I finally got around to tracking down the file and it turned up to be something in my pose hack folder. I didn't spend any more time trying to figure out the exact file, but there you have it.

What I really wanted to post about was the Log folder in My Documents. I had 870+ files and all together it was over 80mb. Now that's a lot of txt!

I've been trying to find a new skin set that I like. I'm a little picky about this stuff because I like to have a wide variety of colours to choose from as well as all the morph stages represented. Most skin sets I've found only have one texture per age group so fat/fit sims look the same as average body sims. I also like my sims to be barbie only below the belt, but not on top.

The current set I'm using are Aquilegia's You Are What You Eat but I'm getting bored with only 12 varieties. Since I don't think there are any add-on sets already out there (its very very hard to google things like this anymore), I decided I'm going to try and take this on myself. I have never made skins before so I have no idea what I'm doing. I am going to try using [ profile] trappingit's colour actions to fill in the gaps of the existing colours already made. Wish me luck! I have no clue what I'm doing. :D
