Hello there and welcome to my simblr! Some of you may know me from around the community as Buckley, but feel free to call me by my real name, Colleen, instead. I create content for The Sims 3, everything from houses and community lots to new clothing meshes and accessories, 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.
This blog is strictly for sims content, and any exceptions will be tagged “non-sims” for easy blocking. Also, I track the tag “buckleysims”.
Alexander joins Teyah for lunch, and despite her initial shyness the conversation flows easily between them. He mostly talks about a large grant that his company gave to the Landgraab Science Facility to cure the devastating Twinbrook Fug epidemic, but to her credit Teyah cheerfully listens to every tedious, minute detail about the tax write-off.
A short while later, Alexander gets swept up into an animated discussion about baking techniques with Chloe and Maria. He smiles and nods and laughs at all their jokes, but the culinary skill has never been his strong suit. Why learn to cook when you can just hire someone to do it for you?
After Stacy runs him through some mumbo jumbo psychology test (in which every ink blob suspiciously reminds him of his job…), Darya lays into him.
"Your jacket looks like its made of yeti fur!" she shrieks. "Do you know how many yetis had to die just so you could look that stupid?!"
"I’ll have you know, this jacket consists of only the finest llama yarn money can buy. No yetis were harmed in the making of any of my clothing, Darya," he huffs, failing to address the more obvious issue at hand.
The aforementioned fighting. Some people might call Majda bitchy, but she prefers the term feisty. Kickin’ ass and takin’ names, the fiery redhead wastes no time establishing her place within the house as the top dog.
After a totally random and unexplained wardrobe change Anja and Alexander do find common ground, and she tells him all about some apparently ugly fighting amongst the other girls in the house.
A few minutes later, Alexander strikes up a conversation with Anja.
"…but you don’t want to touch it?!" he asks her, shocked that any woman could resist him.
She doesn’t reply, but she doesn’t really need to either. The look of pure disgust on her face conveys precisely what she thinks of his attempt to flirt with her.
Even after their date ends and they return to the house, Alexander and Céleste remain totally absorbed in each other, exchanging flirty grins and amorous hugs.
The end of Alexander and Céleste’s private date. It’s the first time (that I can remember) that Alex has thought about marriage without a great big red X through it. <3
…He does still look a bit terrified of the idea though! XD
BC Spam Incoming!
After reading spladoum’s wonderful, hilarious, and still unfinished *cough* story (here), I had an itch to play my BC again. I will finally get my desktop back sometime this week (hopefully) with my shiny new GPU, but I found a bunch of uncaptioned pictures to post until then. =)
Block the tag “BuckleySimsBC” if you don’t want to see them. <3
Praaven looks like it jumped off the pages of a fairytale. <3
I can spend hours just panning the camera around staring at this world.
Thank you Buckleysims for all the hearts! Here’s one in return!
I’ve been trying to catch up on my favorite tumblrs today, and I guess I got a bit carried away with all the likes! =D But I really am a *huge* fan of your work, jje. São Paulo already looks so gorgeous and vibrant and unique. I can’t wait to take a peek at it in game! And Praaven. <3 That world has the most beautiful terrain painting and sculpting I think I’ve *ever* seen. I wish I had your skill with CAW and your talent for lot building. Keep up the great work! <3
Trying to learn to make script mods…

Chapter 8: Slip Up Fall Down (NSFW)
With a sudden jolt, Griffin’s thoughts come screeching back to the present as Ari, his ever faithful companion, demandingly nuzzles up against his calves.
I’m bored, Ari purrs and splays himself across Griffin’s shoes. Why are we sitting here in this dank, dirty house when you still need to rescue the girl?
“I have to choose,” he mutters distractedly. “Kieran knows something, and he wants to protect me. I cannot take his warning lightly.”
The old man barely knows his name anymore, the cat retorts with a sleepy yawn. If he realized that you risk losing the love of your life over some overblown figment of his overworked imagination, I guarantee you he would not have put you in this position.
“You don’t know that.”
I know that you love Georgia. I have seen you two together, and the looks you give each other make me want to hack up a hairball. No matter what you find in that chest, it will never match what you feel for her.
Griffin grunts. “I need to speak with my father,” he replies after a long pause. “I- I think I need his help.”
With so many TS3 players coming back to TS2 to try out Ultimate Collection, I’m writing a quick start list of essential CC for those who haven’t played TS2 in years, so… what would you guys put on the list?
If any of y’all have some suggestions, please let Nysha know! I’m trying to play TS2 again after not having touched the game in over five years, so this would be really helpful for me! Thank you. <3
