*golf claps*
* Lorelei agrees.

Good catch.

The sad thing is that Liveangel's corrections of Cockroach's posts, while numerous, did not reflect all the corrections that could legitimately have been sporked; only the most glaring of the mistakes.

Corrections? I only highlighted stuff.
* Liveangel looks back at her post.
Yeah, I didn't highlight missing periods or spaces, because I didn't know what to highlight. Also, (insert lame excuse here) so I missed some. But if you want corrections, then good. I want something to do.

LMFAO!!! Peggy stuff isn't that bad.
I chose Fresh prince's home decor objects over at MTS2. They're all bad.
I remember that old above ground pool he posted at SS2 forever ago ...OMG it made my sims get stuck so they couldn't move. >_<
http://hideki.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=289166
That is bad. Not only because it is horridly pixel-ey, but it is also photo realistic, which means NOTHING in the sim world. I don't even think CC will work with it.
That one literally made me go Shocked
WTF? Is that person stupid and blind?
Better? Do they still have mistakes that I missed?

So, I decided to go check out Renegade Sims, because the link was listed here. I found more Peggy stuff that looks great when advertised... and sucks when in the game. Credits for the pics from Renegade Sims. XD

It's really a shame, because it's one of, like, two pigtails that actually hang down the back and not over the shoulders that I've ever been able to find.

Me too! I think next month's contest should be: Now why didn't a talented creator think of that? We can drag our most shameful shit from our downloads folder and sigh at the poor meshing and horrible texturing of a good idea.
ETA: Holy Jesus! It also does the bendy-pigtail dance!

Tempting me to make a bendy-pigtail dance video, eh? Well, bring on your poorly-animated, your weakly-converted (from other games), and starvin' chilluns, and I just might do it.  Cheesy

Snapdrive seems to be down. I'll see if I can find where I put them on my computer and rehost them with imageshack.

I realize hair colors (and when brown becomes blond or red) are, to some extent, a matter of opinion.  THAT BEING SAID, I am sick and tired of hairs in the wrong bin.  Especially reds.  Peggy really does have some nice, fairly natural looking red hairs...

.... and when I download them, they show up in the blond or brown bin.  Sad

A lot of these are Peggy but not all.  I'm redoing my download folder and came across these while weeding out recolors. 

NOT BLACK:



NOT BLOND(E):



NOT BROWN:

Wow, sudaki, I don't envy your rebinning task. Shocked I died a little inside last time I rebinned my hair folder. And, uh, because of the packages that had black .bmps inside, I now have a few blonds in the black bin.  Embarrassed

I'm too lazy to rebin all the miscategorised Peggy hair, so I just pretend my sims have chosen to dye theirs but forgot the eyebrows.

Look! A pretty new top for my teenage sims.

But...

Being fat is a Very Bad Thing.

This top is a default replacement. HystericalParoxysm's replacement mesh: not as advertised.

Tests say I'm INFP. I feel that ISFP describes what I act like more accurately than INFP, though. But both descriptions are pretty covering, so take your pick, or combine them.

I actually had to come out of lurking and register to share this beautiful meshing gem.

The original, and yes, it is pay.

Found http://www.thesimsresource.com/artists/Neptunesuzy/downloads/sims2/SetID_390079/

In game:

umm ...


Okay ...


WTF?!

<SNIP: scary boobs and bendy neck>
Cry that is just frightening.

And this is going to pale in comparison, but I just found this in my downloads.  The advertising:

A nice "donation" bathroom from SimCredible.
But for some reason when I place the rectangular tub....


It's the disappearing towel rack!  You put it in your bathroom, it appears in your living room!

I haven't got pictures, (boo, hiss), but I recently downloaded some Helga stuff (ok, a lot) after all the fangirling and squeeing over her I saw at PMBD.

I set up a bedroom with her stuff (didn't really go, given it was the Hick house, but it was the first house I played after installing and I wanted to see what it looked like), and well.  Quilts don't move, the bedframe sticks out through the other side of the wall (you can even see it when looking from another lot - there's a bedframe shaped shadow on one of the walls.  Clicking on the bed gave the option to "00a e pc", whatever that was - I'm guessing Relax, because the sims weren't really tired yet.  As soon as I got out of the game I deleted all of Helga's stuff.

Pity.

I think they only fangirl about Helga's hair over there, not her objects. Personally I wouldn't touch a Helga hair unless it has been recoloured Cheesy

I'd agree with that.  I downloaded a bunch of her hair and was sorely disappointed - that got promptly deleted, too.  If I had any skill/inclination/time I'd do it myself (using someone else's *cough*Nouk*cough* textures).

[Not so shiny in-game shot]

That reminds me strongly of the Vitasims stuff. It looks gorgeous as long as you don't place it against a wall.
