Sim-ple.

Spent last weekend with Fif. Got drunk with her and our other pal Jason because the three of us hadn't ever seen Rocky Horror. We bought a lot of alcohol, watched some Die Antwoord videos, and finally bit the bullet. I wasn't really sure what to expect, aside from Susan Sarandon being in not a lot of clothes. susan_sarandon_rocky_horror_picture_show_1975_VAza2KB.sized

Toucha-toucha-toucha-touch you? You got it, toots!

We were so intoxicated that the movie started out making no sense, but after we'd had a bit it made sense, then we had a little more and it stopped making sense again. It was a blast (hello: ART DIRECTION!) but I confess, I really do enjoy a linear plot.

The next day, I went back over to Fif's and we made breakfast. (I ate a metric dickton of bacon that day.)

Fif in the kitchen.

The rest of the day, she worked on a digital painting, and I futzed around in the Sims. Never in my life have I been so frustrated! Going through trying to weed out bugged custom content is utterly ridiculous. I thought it wasn't going to take me all day but......it ended up taking me all day.

I'd say it was worth it, but now all I have is another way to waste my time. (Ha!)

It took me awhile to parcel through all of my things and find out what was making my game crash. I was bummed because I lost a few of my really pretty characters in the process, but it was a real lesson in making sure your files are nicely organized. The process definitely made me want to go through and clean out some of my other folders, lord knows they could use some attention! (I have a subfolder that's just pictures of famous people. It's organized for the most part, but I shudder to think about what it would take to go through all the unsorted files. Yikes!)

When I'd originally started this post, I was in the space where, "is this worth it to get my game fixed?" was my main quandary. After I finally got things back to working order, I'm still wondering if it was worth it. I really enjoy playing, (by "playing" I mean futzing around) but can I really afford to try and make time for one more thing? I'm not quite sure! We'll see, I suppose?

With that said, here are some screenshots from my game:

These are a few of the sims I'm sad I lost when I had to reinstall all my game data:

I doubt I'll become a prolific content creator maven like Fif. She's made quite a name for her self in the custom content makers arena, which is totally rad! I feel like I'm not well versed in that sort of thing, and I have much more fun dicking around with things in-game.

Does the Sims feel super old to you? Bring back any memories?

I have a WWP planned for Friday this week, we'll see if I can figure out how to explain myself in time.

In any case...

Happy simming~!
