What's with editting the original post instead of replying in the thread? You do realize you're asking questions to people that probably don't realize you've been updating the first post?

I think it was more like the monkey discovered the hexagon shaped wall tools. Click and drag, that's big enough for a house, NOW, A PORCH!
Uh, Jelly? That's an octagon. An octagon-shaped RAKE.

=p Dammit.

Yeah, you know, same thing if you want that. Remember, though: No hurry. This isn't the old KathyInsimenator, and we are forward-facing. We have about 3-4 months for this, and if the fact that Hecuboss is no longer present results in more Paypal issues, we have plans for an emergency drive in place, and a recovery plan which will mean we won't need to do this again next year if that happens.

Is the MATY gift shop still running?
I have no idea. Probably not, since Hecuboss is dead. You need to show up in #grah so I can asks you questions, though.

Will report in as soon as I get home.

Take into consideration that I've had BABIES (which are all shaped the same, with none of the parents physical features visible except for eye bolor) with eyebags, should really tell you something. =p
58  TS2: Burnination / Oops! You Broke It! / Re: Breeding results in huge eyebags... ALWAYS - no matter what. on: 2009 July 29, 13:48:09
Exactly, if you're using CC skins to show off the eyebags, then try different CC skins, FFS. Try installing Enayla's Pixie skins and see if the eyebags still show up then. Once again, her earlier stuff had huge eyebags. CONSTANTLY. There is a reason why they got dumped my from my CC folder. I got tired of reloading the game if a baby was spawned with her older skins.

What we're trying to say is, there is nothing broken about your game, or your sims, it's the CC. Caused by a creator not testing her work on vastly different sims. That's why her newer skins (even her freaking weirdo gem skintones don't have this problem) because she got better at making skins. If you don't have her early work installed, when you clearly have CC skins in your game, then you're using someone that is suffering from her earlier mistakes of making the under eye area too detailed.

Actually, I've heard people's inner voices before. Remarkably, they all sound rather similar: Moist and squishy.

Are you sure that's a voice?  I mean, once you get inside there, everything is moist and squishy.

On the other hand, if that is a voice, it seems possible that Joan of Arc's "voices" that compelled her to rampage through France and then jump into a BBQ were little more than gas and perhaps her tummy rumbling.  Joan was a hungry emo; thousands die.

[/historical reductionism]

Now you're making me want to watch The Messenger. Just for the scene where the Dustin Hoffman voice starts giving her a bunch of random scenarios as to why there might've been a sword lying in the middle of a field.

You get blending of features in Sims 2. You get direct copies in Sims 3. =p

Problem is that the OP refuses to show us pictures of the parents. Simply the offsprings. It could be that one of the parents' eyelines are vastly different than the other and that's causing the issue. But considering that the problem IS NOT THAT VISIBLE WITH DIFFERENT SKIN TONES why should we bother to "fix" it. When the only problem is the skintone?

Like I said, *I* have had the same issues with some of Enayla's earlier skintones. Her more recent stuff DOES NOT HAVE THIS PROBLEM on the same sims. Considering that I can recognize the freaking eyebags down to the creator (or whoever copied Enayla's work and tried to pass it off as their own "blend") should tell you something about the problem.

Downloads AND Saved Sims.  Tongue
62  TS2: Burnination / Oops! You Broke It! / Re: Breeding results in huge eyebags... ALWAYS - no matter what. on: 2009 July 27, 18:11:05
Looks like some unfortunate side effect of Enayla skins. Some of her eariler stuff suffered from this alot. When she started doing the Pixie skins, the eye sag wasn't as apparent. It's the under eye detail getting stretched out by the genetics. Spawn with different sims, or remove the CC skins. Be sure to check your saved sims folder as well, not just your downloads.

I don't really know specifically.  I learned my grammar a long time ago, and occasionally do an update, but the basic rules are now fully incorporated into the "it does/doesn't sound right" part of functional memory.  I think, a term like "additionally" would be more correct, whereas "also" is a more vernacular "common usage" type of thing, but technically incorrect.  It does appear to have a certain stylistic correctness on the internet, and is certainly used a lot as a sentence starter, so it has some level of common acceptance, depending on the context.  I wouldn't use it as a starter in formal text.

Then again, perhaps I'm just wrong.

I want to say that I've used it in essays and never had an odd remark about it. I had some pretty old school Comp teachers too. They didn't believe in using sentence fragments for effect. =p I wouldn't think they would let "also sentences" slide. I could be wrong about that, though. Who knows about the thought processes of teachers I had ages ago might've been.
64  TS3/TSM: The Pudding / The World Of Pudding / Re: Important notice from the GRAMMAR POLICE. Plz read. This means you. on: 2009 July 27, 16:18:50
(Yes, I know one should not start a sentence with "also" - it's non-standard.)

You're not? Well, shit, no wonder I get a Grammar Boot every year.  Tongue What's the reasoning?
65  TS3/TSM: The Pudding / The World Of Pudding / Re: Important notice from the GRAMMAR POLICE. Plz read. This means you. on: 2009 July 27, 16:12:24
If the sentence being in a fragment adds something to the style or the voice of the writing. If it doesn't contribute anything, then it just makes you sound like a tard. In other words, if it doesn't benefit from being a sentence fragment, why do it?

This is my intuition also, but apparently there is some kind of hierarchy of Who Is Allowed To Use Fragments and Who Is Not Allowed To Use Fragments here.

I think there this an unspoken rule about n00bs blasting out grammar fragments like a grenade went off in their first few posts. It seems to be the difference between standing respectably while the teacher introduces you to a new classroom and jumping up on a school desk and doing the Bartman dance.

You mean "acceptable".
Yes, I did. Sorry.  Tongue Three edits, and I missed that each time.

In a forum, you can get away with more sentence fragments than you would in other forms of expression. Considering that you are "talking" on a forum. The only time you see people get jumped on for fragments on a forum is when you get a hamtard that communicates like this:

"lololol totaly broke my game. My sim was bed bath now hall chair lololol do u noe what happeneded?"

And that's why I was wondering why Midwing was getting jumped on.

I can't answer that one, I skimmed over Midwing's intro to the thread.

My guess as to when sentence fragments are okay:

If the sentence being in a fragment adds something to the style or the voice of the writing. If it doesn't contribute anything, then it just makes you sound like a tard. In other words, if it doesn't benefit from being a sentence fragment, why do it?

Anyways, the only time you really see sentence fragments as acceptable forms of expression would be during first person narratives. They have no place in essays (except maybe one about personal opinions or a non-English class essay question).

Quotations would be another exception.

(((Of course, I am by no means an expert. No surprise there. Most of it just seems to be common sense.)))

I had seen it done, so I assumed (I know) that there might've been an exception for it. Perhaps it's merely how they chose to format their guides. *shrugs*

Ah, I was thinking of TV Guide print here. They bold the show title and put the episode name in quotes. I really shouldn't have expected TV Guide to be an indicator of grammatical correctness.
70  TS3/TSM: The Pudding / The World Of Pudding / Re: Important notice from the GRAMMAR POLICE. Plz read. This means you. on: 2009 July 21, 17:51:18
Episode title-wise, italics is a commonly excepted too, isn't it? TV show bold, episode title in italic?
71  TS3/TSM: The Pudding / The World Of Pudding / Re: Important notice from the GRAMMAR POLICE. Plz read. This means you. on: 2009 July 21, 17:45:05
Yes, no grammatical reason to set off offering, experience, OR wacky; unless you were being sarcastic. So why, if they were not meant to be sarcastic, were you single quoting random shit?
72  TS3/TSM: The Pudding / The World Of Pudding / Re: Important notice from the GRAMMAR POLICE. Plz read. This means you. on: 2009 July 21, 17:39:31
What Jordi said. Don't use them for everything. You were asked earlier in the thread to knock it out, Zazazu Reggikko was just pointing out HOW MANY FREAKING TIMES you used them in one post.
73  TS3/TSM: The Pudding / The World Of Pudding / Re: Important notice from the GRAMMAR POLICE. Plz read. This means you. on: 2009 July 21, 16:41:42
Stop over-using the sarcastic quotes. If you're going to be proper about tv show titles, they're UNDERLINED.

Just remember, you can talk bad about Americans, as long as you make sense. Bitching about how American English is different than British English is what got you in trouble. Of COURSE they're different. DIFFERENT LANGUAGES, sweetheart. Did you notice how no one jumped down your throat for the "lazy and fat Americans" comments?
75  TS3/TSM: The Pudding / The World Of Pudding / Re: Important notice from the GRAMMAR POLICE. Plz read. This means you. on: 2009 July 20, 14:28:38
Oh, well, thanks for taking that in stride, then. =D
