Welcome to my sims journal. This entry is dated in the future so that it will always be at the top. If you've been here before feel free to scroll down and get to the good stuff! Basically, I'm Bee. I don't make a lot of custom content, but when I do it's all available to download here.

Anything you see available for download is by me unless otherwise noted. I always credit other creators where applicable and I'd appreciate it if you'd do the same for me. Feel free to recolor/hack at/eat a fine Italian dinner with any of my downloads. I only ask that you do not upload them to paysites or the exchange. I would love to see anything you've made using my creations (including pictures of your sims/houses with my downloads in them). Please don't claim anything that I have made as your own. Other than that, do whatever you want!

Time for a new selfsim?

Posted on 2011.05.21 at 13:27
I saw this on someone else's simming journal a while back and bookmarked it to take later. I can't remember who, so if you're on my f-list and you have this in your journal let me know so I can credit you!

My Sim Personality


Score (0-10)

Personality Dimension

6

Neat (vs. Sloppy)

Neat, tidy Sims typically enjoy cleaning up the house or grooming themselves in front of a mirror. There's always something to be done around the house and they'll more often than not be found doing it; great for a house, but it can tire Sims out.


With their constant disregard of cleanliness and hygiene, sloppy Sims are content to simply "be." They tend to enjoy just about anything that doesn't require planning or cleaning up on their part.

6

Outgoing (vs. Shy)

Outgoing Sims are likely to jump headfirst into any situation. Charm and confidence are their best traits and when they're in a friendly mood they enjoy group activities most of all. Keep an eye on these characters, though; outgoing Sims can be too brash, and others aren't always so impressed.


Introspective and quiet, shy Sims often think about the world around them and write in their diaries rather than actually interact with anyone. It may be harder to break out of their shells, but if shy Sims take the time to get to know others they'll be delighted by the social world awaiting them.

3

Active (vs. Lazy)

Active Sims are almost always on the move but need a lot of food and sleep to keep up their hectic pace. They're apt to be happiest while breaking a sweat, an exhausting idea to most other Sims. An active Sim will usually get more enjoyment from watching sports on TV than reading a book.


Lazy Sims have been known to veg out on the couch for hours on end, so naturally, they don't need much sleep to sustain their constant lazying. They still enjoy socializing wiht other Sims and can be persuaded to get out of the house once in a while.

7

Playful (vs. Serious)

Playful Sims are more likely to find entertainment and fun in the world around them; they tend to be more curious than any other Sim. They may have a lighthearted nature, but they can wear themselves out with their antics, as well as get on their fellow Sim's nerves.


Serious, quiet, thoughtful Sims are more inclined to enjoy logic puzzles and good conversation, but they don't respond too well to chaos or silly behavior. Repairing broken items or working on an important project can keep serious Sims content.

2

Nice (vs. Grouchy)

Encouraging and generous, nice Sims tend to be easy to get along with and very positive. They'll listen to what other Sims have to say whether it's interesting or not and clean up after dirty roommates. If they don't watch out though, other Sims may take advantage of their good nature.


Grouchy Sims, despite their sour mood, can still be social creatures. They'll probably enjoy teasing a Sim as much as telling a joke. They don't seem to mind when other Sims overreact and they like playing a game as much as anyone else, but be warned: they tend to be sore losers.

A Very Simpressive Pleasantview: The Calientes

Posted on 2010.12.11 at 12:26
Mood: hungry
Music: get busy. saigon.

I've been spending a lot of time playing Pleasantview lately. If you weren't already aware, prepare for the evidence of my inexplicable love for Maxis makeovers. I've been playing the Calientes, the Brokes, and Don Lothario thus far.

Maxis makeovers this way!Collapse )


These are just some brief shots. I've got a story brewing but I'm not sure I'll end up sharing it here, so instead have this picture dump and draw your own conclusions!

So I just finished my first real challenge entry ever for the Small Quarters 2.0 challenge over at Living Sims. Basically, participants were given a specific house plan and we could personalize it in any way to fit at least two sims.

I've been playing The Sims 3 lately and there is a definite lack of custom content for my particular fandoms. It's time to learn to make some stuff, I suppose. Any recommendations on tutorials?

TS3 Photoshop action

Mood: productive
Music: imogen, still.
Tags: , ,
I recently came across this tutorial on taking and editing pictures in the Sims 3. It makes bright pictures look awesome although it doesn't seem to do much for my darker pictures. Anyway, I was thinking how much it would suck to have to do this to every single screenshot you take so I made it into a Photoshop action. The only part I left out was the original resizing, because I like to crop my pictures (to leave out the UI, to get a better shot, etc) and I didn't want to have the action resizing my original pictures without me cropping them first.

Here are some examples of this action in ... well ... action:

action
before & after

action
before & after


So basically, this action duplicates your image, adjusts the curves, sharpens with the unsharp mask and adds a border. You'll end up with two layers: your original and the final product. You can click back and forth between the layers to see if you like the end effect. If you don't, simply delete the altered layer (which will be named background copy) and you're left with your original image.

I made it in Photoshop CS4 but I think it should work in other versions. Please let me know if this is helpful to you or if you have any issues with it. I'd totally consider making some more actions in the future if anyone wants them.

I just found out you can zoom waaaaaay out and distort things. This room is only 4x7, I think, but it looks ridiiiic.

I'm far too amused by this development.

I've never done anything worthwhile that warranted posting here. My bad.

I finally started my first legacy, though! I don't think I'll be posting it because there's no definite story line or anything and I'm not really on top of taking pertinent pictures, but I'm keeping score for myself. Maybe once I get this one under my belt I'll think about trying to write something substantial.

Until then, thanks to all the creators I've added to my f-list (and those I haven't)! You guys are amazing.
