One Tenth a Chapter

Once upon a time, back when I first got my computer, I had to send it back to the manufacturer to get it fixed for something I don’t remember.  Since getting it back, my version of Windows seems to have been glitched or tampered or whatever kinda weird shit my computer does, because it will actually just up and delete whatever it feels like at pretty much any random time it wants.  Especially if I’m messing with files and shit.  One reason I’ve never really been comfortable with getting CC.

But with the absence of any nice sims in my crappy town, I decided to throw caution into the wind and try my damnest to put sims and CC and finally have nice things for once.

First, I took everyone’s advice and tried to get Twallan’s story progression.  I’ve been recommended and have actually wanted it for a while.  My computer said NO

AND ATE MY SIMS

I’m SOOOO happy I’m paranoid and backed everything up four times uuuugh

Soooooo, then I tried just downloading pretty sims.  Was successful sometimes.  But really nice sims (LIKE ANDIE’S THOR AMG) weren’t welcome into my game (THANKS COMPUTER).  My computer pretty much hated every sim I’ve thrown at it, except Scarletsimphony’s Audio Science and Pilot Inspektor from her Creeper Legacy (READ IT BTW):

My computer likes Mediafire I guess lol.  It hates everything else apparently, cept Audio’s hair, you lucky bastard.  So far these two are the only ones showing up in my game.  SO YEAH.  That’s what I’m doing right now.  Looking for sims to townie-fy and hopefully make some future spouse choices because I’m getting sad.

Anyone?  Sim suggestions?  Simself suggestions *maniacal laughter*

Til then, I’ll be looking for new stuff to replace the hair/clothes/etc my computer seems to be eating away *runs off*

Here, have Virginia falling in love with a chair til next actual chapter.

“It’s nawt the chair… it’s the mustay’ smell of the man that wus last in the chair…..  It’s my own lil’ glass slippur, but with a stinky chair.”

You are not going to fall in love with your cousin Micah.  Screw that.

    Wow it did that to your game?! That’s so weird, since it’s such a great mod. Maybe it’s just your computer :s. Oh well I wish the best of luck finding pretty sims and CC for your game. I got to skysims2.com for clothes, peggyzone.com for hair. The files are rar, not sure if that’s what you use? For some really nice stuff try using mysimsblog.com. There like a blog to direct you to other blogs and sites. Now as far as pretty sims, I would just suggest the exchange. Like try looking for CC- crap free sims that have nice faces. Little bit of mbs and no crap attached. :3 Hope this did anything to help….. O.O

    • missmiserie says:

      Thanks for those suggestions. Yeah, I think it’s just my computer. To be honest, I was half expecting this computer to kill my legacy generations ago :\

      I’m looking for said sims, but so many people out there have sims that I need WA and/or LN for because my computer says they aren’t welcome into the game, no matter what I do. I found some things, but it’s hard to find things with just base game and/or ambitions only.

  2. Gargantua says:

    Wow! I feel your pain. But Audio Science and Pilot Inspektor are awesome sims – I’ve downloaded them myself. 🙂 I’d also suggest downloading Cocaine Chimeree (http://milkywaymariah.livejournal.com/43135.html) cause he’s made of awesome. I’ve been looking for pretty sims to download myself – if I find any more that are totally made of awesome, I’ll let you know. 🙂

    As to simselves, you are welcome to have mine: http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=659554. She comes complete with simself hubby.

    • missmiserie says:

      I’ve never gotten around to reading the Chimerees, I hear it’s pretty good :O LAWL I might need get over there and get me some of that COCAINE

      lol I downloaded you and your husband NOW MAKE ME BABIES

  3. Lurking Fan says:

    Hey, I can make some CC and slider hack free bachelors for your game. I enjoy using CAS, so I’ll likely make some anyway. Let me know if you want me to upload the sim files to my mediafire. (or if you have any specifications regarding appearance, personality, etc)

    • missmiserie says:

      that would be really nice! I personally need to learn now to post stuff into mediafire and start using that site, my computer doesn’t seem to ever have problems with that site unlike the exchange for god knows what reason.

      You can if you want. I really don’t have any preference on what they look like, so long as they are pretty and make pretty townie babies.

  4. Dan says:

    It might just be your computer, but I wasn’t able to use CC and Store-bought items until recently. It turns out that you have to install everything in order by release date. So if you’re unsure of your order, I’d recommend trying reinstalling everything. As for using CC, I got most of mine from Mod the Sims.

    There isn’t as wide variety as I’d hoped, but everything works smoothly. And yeah, as far as downloading sims go, I’d stick with the Exchange. Just don’t download sims with ridiculous amounts of CC, as it really lagged my game (so it might do worse for your’s).

    If you’d like, I could point you in the direction of a male spare of mine. He’s attractive, and he has no CC. The only thing is, another legacy writer is using him as well, so you might catch him on another blog. And I’d offer to put up my simself, except she’s female and I’m not sure that Virginia’s into that kinda thing.

    Good luck with sorting out your sims issues! I look forward to the next chapter, especially if it involves Pilot and Audio. ❤

    • missmiserie says:

      It’s got to be the computer, because all the ducks in my sims game are in a row metaphorically speaking. And I did manage to get a few things from MTS to work in my game too, it was hesitant about it but it works fine for me. As for CC laced exchange downloads, my game doesn’t like plain default sims, much less big, space eating CC sims. I keep my eye out to avoid them.

      And your simself will do fine. She can breed with random men in town for a future spouse baby hopeful 😀 But thanks for the tips!

      • Dan says:

        That’s too bad :/ Yeah, I’m not too sure about other CC sites because this is my first experience with it, but take Rad’s advice over mine, she knows more than me. The only things I’ve downloaded from the exchange are lots, that sometimes have residents, but the only household that I downloaded was smothered with CC. I thought it was just that one, but I’m still a newb.

        Alright! Totally sounds like something I’d do in my spare time XD I’ll try to get her up on Thursday, and if I fail to let you know, my name on the Sims 3 site is Schobbes. And you’re welcome! Anything that might help a fellow simmer, and a fantastic legacy.

      • Dan says:

        Ahh, the Internet hasn’t been working AT ALL for days, and so I feel like a tool. Forgive me.

        So, I put my simself on the exchange and on mediafire. The only non-base game items that I used was an Ambitions hair style – which I think you say is okay? I remember reading somewhere something about your computer only accepting base game and Ambitions stuff from the exchange and/or elsewhere – and the pair of Late Night shorts that I use for all of my sims’ athletic wear because I like them better than the base game shorts. But that might not let your game accept it… blah.

        Anywhos, here are the links. I hope that if the exchange one fails that the mediafire one doesn’t (that was my first time using mediafire), and if it does… let me know.

      • missmiserie says:

        Don’t worry about it, I have a similar internetless situation every other weekend, so it’s no biggie. It’s when I play most of my sims chapters anyway.

        I’ll give then a shot, but lately my computer will or will not accept anything, doesn’t matter if it’s base game/ BG with Ambitions, and I can’t understand that. Once, I managed to download a sim from LN (none of their clothes/hair/traits survived the installation, bu the sim managed to make it in ok), so I can’t figure out what the crap is wrong with my computer that’s accepting whatever the hell it wants too.

        I haven’t tried your simself yet, though, I’ll try in the morning and let you know what happens. Cross your fingers O_O

      • missmiserie says:

        I went ahead and tried them both and neither worked :\

        I had the same problem I had with Skehrer’s sims. I’m going to save your sim to a flashdrive with her’s and try my damnest to figure out what the hell’s going on here…

  5. Simsnewbie23 says:

    Here is a list of all the various sims I’ve created through three legacies. I upload all spares and such as soon as they hit YA, so you are welcome to throw a few in if you’d like. =D

    http://www.thesims3.com/userExchange.html?selectedAsstType=all&persona=Thimbalina

  6. Rad says:

    Don’t download ANYTHING from the exchange. It’s a playground for game-breaking crap that comes attached to sims. I only ever download sims in .sim format (Mariah’s are in this format), and I’d download ones with default skins as sometimes non-default skin sims can crash your game, even if you have the skins installed. If you must get them in sims3pack format then make sure you run Custard (over at Mod the Sims) to clean them up first.

    And make sure everything is in your mods folder in My Documents, not Program Files.

  7. uggles says:

    Did you grab the most recent version of Twallan’s SP? I ran into an issue with it where I had installed an older version which didn’t work. I think this is the newest one which I am using now and it works fine: http://ts3.tscexchange.com/index.php?topic=4689.0

    I did just upload my simself, Max & Herb to my downloads page, but unfortunately they are on the exchange. You are welcome to them, though Herb and Max are definitely not going to help prettify your town haha. I am hoping them being on the exchange won’t cause any issues but I may look into Rad’s advice and try saving them in sim format and hosting the dl elsewhere.

  8. Kayla Kuris says:

    Oh yeah, that bolg mysims3blog links to reputable sites from around the web. Will have everything you’re looking for 😛

  9. Skehrer says:

    You could pair up Audio and Pilot in CAS with females mate them until you get pretty offspring and plop them into your town.

    Rad: thanks to your advice I plan to put my sims up in simfile format without CC.

  10. cc free sims says:

    http://www.mediafire.com/?78jt1jt01pc6f7v

    I was bored today and went ahead with it. I have some defaults installed, so they won’t look exactly like the pics.

    • missmiserie says:

      Aw sadness! All that work you went through for these pretty little guys and they didn’t show up at all D:

      I’m telling you guys, my computer is vicious when it comes to the sims ;_;

      • Really? Oh well. says:

        Maybe you really do need to have compatible EPs like the tags on the exchange imply, but I think Skehrer is onto something if you’re not patched. Hopefully, you can find some way to populate your town before it dies out. (Although, it would be hilarious to see the Secksies unleashed on one of the urban worlds.) Your blog is my absolute favorite sims blog of all time, and I’ve been reading sims stories since the TS1 exchange went live. Well, good luck.

        PS: I just uploaded the sims in household and simpack form, just in case your game isn’t recognising sim files for some reason. It should work if the launcher cooperates.

        *relurks*

      • missmiserie says:

        http://i958.photobucket.com/albums/ae68/the_fun_sketchbook/ihatelife.jpg <this is the problem it keeps showing me with simspack files. It keeps taking me to this, not installing the sim, and keeps telling me I need an update I apparently have. Unless I'm missing a patch I thought I had, idk what the deal is :\

      • Oh, I see. says:

        I would suggest trying a third party installer for your cc, but you may have already done that. The only other thing I can think of is manually repatching. (but not with the incremental patches) I’m so sorry that your game is borked. It’s no wonder your town has gone gray if you’ve been stuck with EA story.

  11. missmiserie says:

    SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

    Just spent 3-4 hours skimming through the exchange, and everything, EVERYTHING, with the default sims needs LN and/or WA like I feared ARUGUGUGUG *to the blogs, etc*

  12. I’d reccommend my legacy sims since they tend to make pretty babies but T use a lot of LN and some CC 😦

    I’d make you some but my computer sometimes goes really weird and doesn’t let me change certain bits of a sims face 😦

  13. Kayla Kuris says:

    I could make sims for you! :0 I wont use LN or WA stuff! But it’ll have CC since for me playing the game without CC is… not… possible xD but I’ll link you to the CC I use!
    And if you get Twallan’s Story Progression mod, it will improve your town by a looooot. And if you get his master controller, you can edit any sim in CAS 😀
    Even people who don’t use CC really have those, so you should get them! And theyre non core mods so they wont destroy your computer!

    Oh yeah, your legacy rules! xD

  14. Skehrer says:

    I am going to take a break from rebuilding my legacy house and I will make my sims cc free and base game only, just for you! Where are you downloading from? Exchange or in simformat elsewhere?

    • missmiserie says:

      Wow, you really don’t have to do all that for me and my legacy D8 wow!

      It depends, mediafire is usually nice to me, and the exchange works of the sims aren’t made in LN or WA which are few far inbetween.

      You guys, you don’t know what this means to me for you to help me like this 😀

  15. skehrer says:

    I’ve got the Sims up in MediaFire for you. You can pick the ones you want here on my blog (http://foodlegacy.wordpress.com/downloads/). Let me know if you try any that don’t work for you and I’ll try something else.

    Let me say that I am sorry for the look of some of them. My three-year old did not want to got to bed until midnight last night and my baby was vomiting (rough night). Some of the sims have TERRIBLE clothing on because I was randomly picking base game things.

    • missmiserie says:

      It’s weird… only Edamame worked, no Miller ;_;

      And your simself from the exchange was accepted by my game. Everything else was just no go, and I’m dissappointed at my crappy computer/game D:

      Sorry to hear about that 😦 don’t worry though, it’s gotten to the point where if they manage to get accepted into my game, I really don’t care what they wear anymore =_=

      • skehrer says:

        Nooooooo! *cries* I was really hoping you could get Miller to work. I can try and upload the base game version of Miller on the exchange for you after my girls are in bed tonight.

  16. skehrer says:

    Let’s try this. I used the vanilla version of The Sims to have Miller and his sister Justine have children in CAS (I know, gross). Anyway, I have nearly perfect copies of Miller and Justine for you to try. Created in a base game, I hope they work. Sims names are John Johnson and Debbie Johnson. *crosses fingers*
    John: http://www.mediafire.com/?r5x28reelqk5nh5
    Debbie: http://www.mediafire.com/?bwc8bbzaf6dmbji

    • missmiserie says:

      D: D: D: I don’t UNDERSTAND. Nothing is working at involves Miller at all. Justine didn’t work either. Your Edamame worked. Your simself from the exchange even worked. I have never had any problem with installing base game sims, and almost no trouble wtih mediafire before until this D: I’d hate to say that all your efforts are in vain, but my game hasn’t accepted anything Miller-related at all. ;___;

      I’ve come to the conclusion that my computer hates progress.

  17. Sucks your game isn’t working. Have you tried hitting it? Cause violence is the answer to everything kids

  18. Del says:

    😦 I hope you sort this out soon cuz I’m dying for an update!

  19. Rad says:

    If you want more sims to chuck at the town, mine are all here:

    http://radsims.wordpress.com/download-sims/

    They’ll only appear in CAS, not in your edit town screen, cos they’re .sims not .sims3packs and none of their CC will come with them, but then you can just choose your own and stick it on. All the ghosts and vamps are in human form not supernatural.

    I don’t think anyone has non-default skins, but there’s a chance the Knights might have.

  20. SwirlGirl says:

    I’m super late, I know, but check out Carl and Pam’s sims 3 forum. They also have a guide. They are strictly CC free, and are really nice. Join the community and get some gorgeous sims. These people would even remove some expansion stuff for you if you need it. It will be at the very top in a google search. (Please! I’m Swirl-Girl there too.)
