The tendrils look like plastic springs (in fact, they remind me strangely of comb binders).  Also, they fall bizarrely from the bottom of the bun.  It's obviously not animated, either.

It's also by Chaz, which means the textures all look like the Sim got very bad highlights. The brown appears to have green streaks in it.

Same thing goes for Grim Reaper, Therapist, Mrs CrumpleBottom, and Bus Drivers (although it's rather odd about Bus Drivers).

What about Cab Drivers?

I remember trying to explain how statistics works (very basically) to people on the BBS back then. They didn't get it.

Thanks, Inge, that's good to know.

I haven't encountered any bugs (I think), though I can't figure out how to get the image preview to work. I know Theo's color binning tool wasn't working with it, but I'd guess that's a separate issue from SimPE itself.

Frat and sorority houses at MSU also regularly had stereos outside when I went there. They also regularly got the cops called on them, but they never learned. Tazering would have helped.

 MSU... never learned.. Uh.. isn't that  redundant?

No, "fraternities", "sororities" and "never learned" is redundant. Kind of like "UM" and "snotty brat with no real campus".

I like SnagIt for screenshots -- it gives me more flexibility than a simple printscreen. I do use the crappy in-game camera for stories I'm going to upload to the Exchange, though. I used storybook viewer for a while, but eventually found it too clunky. Editing the .xml directly is a good idea, I wish I'd thought of that before.
I proof in Wordpad, but find actually writing in it troublesome since I can't see the photos. I'm a bad bunny, though, and am behind on everything.

Oh, sheesh, I am so far behind it's ridiculous. I'm procrastinating because I hate Uni when I can't cheat to shorten it, and I have 11 Sims to get through in this generation. Give me a nice romance Sim over an insane family Sim any day.

I wonder if there's an .xml editor that shows pictures. That's probably not even possible, is it?

Yay! Nailati, I'm so happy you're back Grin. These are quite excellent, I love that the noses still have lots of character.
33  TS2: Burnination / The Podium / Re: Just how the hell many pictures do you have to acquire on vacay... on: 2007 December 11, 03:25:07
How is that more flexible than printscreen? Printscreen captures the entire screen and lets you put it in any paint program of your choice.

Then you have to edit it again to get the right size. With SnagIt you can get the right size right away.

Yeah, who puts stereos outside? You get the cops called on you if you party into the early morning with a stero going. Because stereos are loud.

We had speakers outside at the house I grew up in. It was on a pretty big plot, and our closest neighbors were always invited to our parties. Also, the only music my father tended to play really loud was Vivaldi.

I delete it every time, because otherwise my game actually loads only about 1/5 of the time.

I always have to restart twice to enable all CC. I often have to do the same thing to enable and disable hacks.

what I object to is someone ripping us to shreds AND stealing our bandwidth AND being fucking ignorant about it.

At least we're not ignorant of the EULA.

WTF?? I've never sold a Sims download in my LIFE? Time you put away that crack pipe I think. Plus given at 5 of our resident artists have worked for EAxis over the past 4+ years I think its highly likely that we understand more about the intricacies of the Sims 2 EULA than you do Simsfreq. We are well aware of what it *actually* means.

JMP, I can see the advantages of keeping people away from the site, but we don't have any visitor involvement aside from our guest books, so it doesn't make any difference whether people are stupid and irritating or not. What does make a difference is if they view the pages they also view the ads so I'm more likely to get paid for the traffic, a lot of international traffic doesn't pay anything but some chance of getting something is still better than none at all! Unlike MTS2 we're not taking in $3000+ a month in subscriber fees, so its gotta come from somewhere.

Wow, this is great PR for Parsimonious. I'm sure lots of people are coming away with a good impression of the people behind your site now.

I've always had a good impression of the site. I still do. Parsimonious gets tons of traffic, they have to pay for that bandwidth somehow. The ads on the site aren't too irritating, as ads go.

If one were to have a bad impression of everyone who has gotten pissed off at Pescado, one would have a bad impression of everyone but Pescado. I'd be pretty annoyed in Kate's position as well.

I think the south could give Florida a run for its money... Cool

Uh... have you looked at a map lately? Florida is in the South. It's the wiener of America.

I don't get the green and red outfits for Valentine's Day. Why the green? And those poor animals.

Florida's not the south... Florida is Florida.... the south is Alabama, Tennesee, Kentucky, etc.... Tongue

Florida is "The South", both geographically and socially. They fought on the side of the Confederacy during the Civil War, there are numerous people down here with Confederate flags on their cars, the politicians are blatantly and obviously corrupt, lynching was a common hobby here in the early part of the 20th century, segregation was institutionalized for as long as it was allowed to be by the feds, and their lemonade tastes like corn syrup.

Also, that green thing is weird and hideous.

I love that video. The guy who did that is an electrical engineer, I think, and he had the light show play at set times so as not to disturb the neighbors too much. The music was broadcast over the radio during those times. Iirc, the biggest problem was traffic congestion from all the people wanting to see the show.

I once dated a guy who would totally do that. In fact, I would be unsurprised if in a few years, when he has his own house, I stumble upon something like that on the internet with his name attached to it. Engineers are nuts. Cheesy

On a related note, how cheesy would Christmas-objects have to be to be cheesy for you Americans? (Would a candy-caned striped mailbox and trash-can be cheesy enough, or is that normal by Christmas-tacky people's standards?)

I don't think one could decorate the trash can, because it needs to be mobile. I'm sure this disturbs certain people immensely. But mailboxes are decorated constantly.

You should visit America over Christmas. I recommend Florida for optimal tackiness. You will probably go blind. Most people just put up some lights, a wreath, it's nice. But every few blocks, there's that one house with 14 different glowing Christmas creatures in the front yard, a life-size glowing creche, and 5 different styles of lights, all of them blinking, covering every square inch of property.
43  TS2: Burnination / Planet K 20X6 / Re: More Awful Than You! December: 'tis the season! on: 2007 December 03, 03:24:32
Looks like mom has been raiding the Christmas tree to make her own ear-rings:

From Parsimonious. By Katie. Link:http://www.parsimonious.org/fashion2/accessories/3.shtml (There are 6 more on that page, all very Christmas-y. I just think these are the ones that scream WTF the loudest). I hope you can all see the pictures.

Those aren't WTF at all. Women wear earrings like that at Christmas all the time. They're supposed to be silly and tacky, that's the whole point. Frankly, the one problem I can see with those earrings is that they are not nearly cheesy enough.

I know what you mean, professorbutters. I finally decided I'd just play University the way I wanted. My Sims study a lot, have lots of parties, and have lots of sex. Which... is pretty much how it was for me Tongue.

You don't need to open .package files to install them, just copy them into your My Documents/Ea Games/Sims 2/Downloads folder.

My guess is that it just stomps autonomous fishing all together.

That would be fine by me. Stop fishing in my coy pond!

*baahs at Zazazu*

Thank you so much for saving my lazy self from having to make one of these from scratch.

MadameUgly and professorbutters, quite funny! The romances in MadameUgly's story are absolutely hilarious (no, I don't expect to see that particular pairing anywhere else), and I really like the idea behind professorbutters' asylum.
49  TS2: Burnination / The Podium / Re: More bullshit from Massive Shithead on: 2007 November 26, 21:59:11
Doc Doofus, that's hilarious! Believe me, at my store you would have succeeded much more quickly, as soon as you got to me, if I with my lowly assistant managerish power could have helped you. Whenever anyone was polite and reasonable, I would do what I could. Most people really are polite and reasonable, so it mostly works out. Then there are people who are spoiled and rude -- no matter what these people think, clerks can't produce games out of thin air, are not expected to have played every game in the store, do not feel nothing when one customer threatens to kill another over a place in line, are not responsible for bugs in a game, are not responsible for company policy, and are paid to help customers and sell product, not to be slaves.
50  TS2: Burnination / The Podium / Re: More bullshit from Massive Shithead on: 2007 November 26, 02:42:30
It does no good?? My ass! If I go away nice and complacent, the way you clerks want me to act, the corp. wins. SO you clerks lose if I throw a fit? So what? it's your job. ANd if only the manager can help us then that manager needs to be onsite all the time any customers are.

It's always wonderfully obvious when someone hasn't worked as a store clerk.

In what way does it hurt the corporation when you treat a clerk like crap? Do you honestly think they CARE? Clerks make no dent in bad policies. Even managers aren't listened to. All you're doing when you're making a scene is ruining someone's day and making them feel like garbage. Oh, and making yourself look like a giant idiot. Good on you.

Call customer service, and if you don't like a store, don't go there. That's the only way things are going to change. Behaving like a spoiled brat and throwing a temper tantrum will get you less than nothing.

By the way, we were allowed and even encouraged to throw irate customers out of the store. It's not a clerk's job to deal with violent people, and if someone yelled, the response was to say, "I will call the police if you do not leave now." Our response to anyone who cursed at us was "leave the store and don't come back, we don't want your business". That was store policy. A clerk's safety is more important than your wallet.
