Also, stop spelling 'weird' weirdly. It is 'weird,' not 'wierd.'

Correcting your error and still getting it wrong? Good job! Good job phailing!  Roll Eyes

If you guys need pirate-like fonts for the designs, there are a few of them here: http://moorstation.org/typoasis/pirates/index.htm. Some of them include custom graphics (aka dingbats), but there may be some copyright restrictions to its use.

I like the MOAR FIGHT ideas.  The "Didn't You Soup?" idea also has its attraction, but I think it's too obscure publicly.  After all, I think most of the people that see the t-shirt, other than the person wearing it, will not be MATY people, or (gods forfend) TS2 players.  I'm imagining a constant barrage of questions from the uninitiated, followed by me having to embark on a "macro-->explain" that will stomp all other items in my queue.  MOAR FIGHT! has better curb acceptance, IMO.

Oh I have. There's this student. She was told by one of my workmates that I play. Now it's all, "how are your sims today?" And she keeps asking me what to do everytime her game crashes or borks. I haven't sent her here 'cos I don't want her here. She's a sheeple and is mostly concerned with little nuclear families that make endless twins. Then she drowns them in the swimming pool. She has trouble keeping pregnant sims alive.

Recently I've been telling her I haven't played for some time. "Some time" being about 8-12 hours in my head.

No. You really don't. lol
Husband's brother - a 12 (thirteen) - plays, too. Yeah, he buys most of the EPs that I'm using, but the thing is.. he comes to me with every glitch and assloads of "blueprints" for houses he'd like me to make for him. While he lived with us, I had the cringe-inducing pleasure of watching him do things like adding the Therapist to families, force sims to drown in the dirt (that one WAS pretty funny, though) and delete occupied lots.

I only know of one - daughter of a colleague at work.  I did not let on that I play and have no intention of telling any TS2 player that I might meet IRL that I frequent MATY.  They might expect me to be nice to them, and then where would we be?

I've met other Sims 2 players IRL. Like my sister, who does cringe worthy things and wonders how I fixed her game without teh EVUL HAX (I told her I "tweaked the settings" when I ninja'd the FT DC into her game Cheesy).

This design is FAIL due to the small size -- it's a mere screenshot, the widest dimension only 1024 pixels.  It will also print as an exact rectangle, which is a boring shape on a shirt.  However, it might be okay on a coffee mug.  Does anyone here drink wine in a mug?

New and improved!  Now the shape is better, but the size is still too small. and the artist has figured out that Photobucket was resizing the images.  This image is properly sized, and the text looks good.



...However, proper sizing doesn't mean as much if you blow up the image and don't work over it again to clean it up.  I'm looking at the full size image at full resolution right now, and I see a lot of blurry pixelation.  It's possible to turn a screenshot into a printable image, but only if you go through a ton of painstaking effort to clean it up afterwards.  Here's a little snippet of what it looks like at full size:

This artist gets a gold star from me for taking criticism in exactly the RIGHT way!  Check this out: the recommended size, beautiful clarity, and generally well done!  This design now looks good on white and amazing on black.

 

This is a full size sample:

And look, the designer has filled up the bowl of Nasty Gray Dip (TM).  I like.

Okay, we've got a set based on suggestions made earlier in the thread.  These will print well on white, but the PMBD logo will not be printable on black at all due to the transparency, white the MATY logo would probably be okay if the lettering were switched to white (not hard at all).  They are both appropriately sized. 

   

I love the plumbob! My only comment (and this is so not important it should most likely be ignored) is that perhaps the background of the circle encompassing it should be blue like the game logo? But either way, def my fave.

The plumbob is my favorite but I would only wear the shirt around the house. Wouldn't want to attract any Sim players IRL. I imagine I would buy one or two of them several sizes too big and use them for sleepwear. Nice and comfy.

My only thing with the plumbob one is that the borkeness of it needs to be moar obvious. As well was the fixings. We all know that it's not a little broke.

Also, it's a good coffee mug design, I think.
