Hello there and welcome to my simblr! I create content for The Sims 3, everything from houses and community lots to clothes and mods, and I intend to use this blog as a place to post pictures of my various projects and uploads. In addition, I love writing stories for the game, and once in a while I will share updates from my legacy here as well.

Okay, I’ve still got a tad bit of seam showing up in the areas I circled. I’m all out of ideas. Do I have to edit all of the LOD’s for the seams to go away completely?
I did the align normals thing in Milkshape which got rid of most of the nastiness but, like I said, now I’m stuck. Anyone out there care to help?
Also, again, ignore the unedited bumpmap.
Tagging buckleysims since she said she may be able to help. Also aikea-guinea cuz I know and love her.

Hmm, could be an issue with your UV map. What edits did you make to the mesh exactly? Also, when you imported the mesh, did you make sure to turn off autosmooth first? I -think- I see some normals weirdness around where the arms hit the shoulder that looks a bit like autosmooth’s doing, but I can’t really tell. If you did, you’ll need to merge the normals data on the neck seam from another adult male top mesh (if you haven’t already), or else you’ll see an ugly seam there in game. Looking good though! =)
ETA: Oops, sniped! XD

I absolutely hated the Sims 4 camera, so I made some adjustments to it. Based on Aikea Guinea’s and cmomoney’s Sims 3 camera mods, my mod eliminates the drift from the live mode and tab mode cameras, and it increases both cameras’ minimum ranges, allowing you to get much lower down to the ground. I also tried to remove the overall bounciness of it; however, there is still a bit too much spring for my tastes, especially when you move between floors.

I hope you all like it, and if you have any problems or suggestions for more improvements my inbox is always open on here or Mod The Sims! =)

Cool/not cool? The awesome Buckleysims requested a diner when I went fishing for requests earlier this week, so I plan on building two of them (I couldn’t decide between one or the other). This is the first one, so if it doesn’t strike your fancy, maybe the next one will. I’m playtesting currently - we’ll see how it goes!

IT LOOKS SO AMAZING JENBA!!! *tries to wait patiently*

Not one to take life lying down, Chance hasn’t let his abusive childhood define him. With an industrious work ethic and charm, he quickly skyrocketed to fame as a racetrack driver in Starlight Shores, complete with a rabid female fan base. But if Chance is going to settle down with someone, she has to be perfect. Will he continue finding fatal flaws in everyone he dates or can he learn to accept someone, faults and all?

Ahhhh, my Chance looks so good! =D I can’t wait for you to start!!!

I’m generally not one to fan the flames of drama but this isn’t something silly regarding personal opinion or hurt feelings. This is about STEALING.

Sims4Forum has been copying and hosting sims 4 content from all over the web, without explicit permission from the creators. Indeed, in some cases, they have hosted content that specifically had a TOU stating not to upload elsewhere. After reading about his site on MTS, the site owner decided to pop in and share his thoughts excuses for his atrocious behavior. Some of them include (my favorite) “it’s too hard to ask everyone first”, “just in case the files are lost" and that "MTS is just picking on his site because they’re trying to monopolize the TS4 CC scene”. 

A lot of people don’t realize that intellectual property is automatically copyrighted as soon as it’s in “tangible form” and includes literary works, as well as photographs, graphics and software. Once your content is fixed in a tangible medium of expression, copyright protection is created: it’s yours and you have exclusive rights to control it, including distribution. 

So what can you do if your content is being hosted somewhere you did not authorize? First, send a message demanding removal of your content. You can also submit a DMCA notice to sims4forum’s web host. You can find a sample DMCA notice on MTS if you need one. Though you should not have to, I would strongly recommend having a visible and clear TOU stating that your content cannot be reuploaded/hosted elsewhere, by anyone other than you. 

This does not just apply to sims4forum, or TS4 content, though that’s what has brought on this post. As creators, we shouldn’t have to worry about our content being stolen (or profited from) just because we’ve posted it. It goes for everyone out there: don’t steal people’s hard work, don’t violate their TOU because you want to, don’t repost links hidden behind your own adfly links. When in doubt about editing someone’s creation, always ask! Not only is it just not cool, it’s illegal.

Harbor Lane Public Library for Willow Creek. With three separate reading rooms, a designated computer lab, an updated children’s area, and a quiet space for teens to study, I tried to pack in as many different activities as I could. The exterior is admittedly pretty simple, but I think the interior turned out pretty well. I like all the nooks and crannies. =)

Chance Ryder for heavensims Are You The One? challenge.

The pungent aroma of gasoline and the overwhelming stench of car exhaust fills the air around him, but despite his watering eyes and stinging nostrils Chance Ryder takes a deep, indulgent breath, savoring the odor. His home for the past five years, he owes everything he has to the racetrack and all the friends he’s made here.

As the youngest son of an auto mechanic, Chance practically grew up with a wrench in his hands. He began fixing up cars long before he could legally drive them, and he always thrived at anything that involved physics, logic, or working with his hands. However, at the age of thirteen, his mother suddenly vanished one day, leaving Chance and his two older brothers alone to deal with their father’s increasingly violent drinking binges.

By the time he turned seventeen, Chance had seen enough. Fed up with the constant beatings and never ending verbal abuse, he quit school and ran away to the nearby city of Starlight Shores where he took a job at the local racetrack as a popcorn vendor. A sharp kid with an industrious work ethic and easy charm, he quickly moved up the ranks over the next couple of years until eventually he caught the eye of the manager of one of the drivers. A little flirting and a few dates later, Chance secured himself a position in her client’s pit crew, and soon he found himself in the driver’s seat.

Now, with a few important victories under his belt and a rabid female fan following to boot, Chance has agreed to participate in the new reality show Are You The One?. He figures the exposure will help expand his marketing appeal and perhaps land him a couple of lucrative advertising deals, but worst case at least he’ll get to hang out with some hot chicks during the speedway’s off season.

I knew that F5 toggled between half tile and quarter tile snapping for things on the ground, but it works for wall objects too! =D Which means, if you want to place lights or curtains or whatever at the exact same height, you can double your available positions!!!
&#8230;I get excited about strange things. XD

Calvin Campbell, a floundering artist who spends more time goofing around with his buddies than practicing his painting. He has the maturity level of a twelve year old boy, including a particular fondness for fart jokes and the movie Animal House, and the dexterity and coordination of a drunk elephant. Nevertheless, give him a brush, some canvas, an easel, and his ADHD medications and he will create a symphony for your eyes.

His great aunt Mildred died recently and left him a hefty inheritance, and he intends to use the money to move out of his mother’s house in the city and buy a small starter in the nearby town of Willow Creek. But can he maintain his focus and make a name for himself as an artist with all the distractions of young adulthood bearing down on him?

Creative | Childish | Clumsy

Rosings Cottage, my first TS4 build. It has three bedrooms and two bathrooms, but I’ve only furnished the downstairs so far. I created it for an artist sim, Calvin Campbell. He’s creative, clumsy, and childish, and he aspires to own a mansion someday. I haven’t actually started playing him yet (or any TS4 sims), but I’ll try to post some CAS pictures of him later. I may move him into a starter home first and make him work his way up to this house, though. Haven’t quite decided yet. =D

I made some more OMSP resizers, 70%, 80%, 85%, 90%, and 95%, as I thought Buhudain&#8217;s 75% resizer was a touch too small for a toddler/faux baby. However, I *suck* at using Blender, so I can&#8217;t offer any poses to go with it, but would anyone like these? If so, I can do some other sizes as well, if you have any in mind. ^_^ Just let me know! =)

The anon will have to adjust the skintone’s TONE ramp
Open the skin in Skinator and lower/increase the shine control

Thank you both very much! =D

To nonny: You can find the Skininator tool here. It’s very easy to use, but if you have any questions please let me know! I’d be more than happy to help. =)

That sounds like the bug you get when your clothing normalmap is imported via SimPE with the wrong compression setting, to me.
Oh wow, totally the wrong game there. :D

Lol! I’m afraid I’m going to be doing the exact same thing with TS4 soon. =P

So I saw your post about shinny clothes and how to fix them do you know anything about the shiny/opaque faces with some skin tones ?

Anonymous

I’m sorry, I’ve never heard of that glitch before. =( Can you give me any more information? When you say opaque, do their faces turn a different color or tone or does the lighting change somehow? Or just generally the skin becomes shiny and opaque on their face? I’d love to help you, but I don’t believe I’ve ever seen that before. Perhaps if you sent me a picture of it? Either way, I really hope you can fix it! <3
