And here I am using more maxis matchis hair. Lower poly counts, okay length, graphics is not supershone but style neutral (I really like Poppet V2 colors)

Yet I reuse the same 5 hairstyles because it’s literally the 5 hairstyles 75% of all guys no matter age

How does one keep their roommate happy ? I have a couch, basic tv, a table with two chairs and a bed for my playable sim.

I don’t have to give them a bed right ? I need her to stay so I can keep my sims rent down since she started her own business 😂😂

I was doing some hair culling yesterday (to see what I wanted to add back to my game vs permanently remove from my computer) and noticed the disparity between AF and AM in not just clothing (which we long-time players are used to), but hairs as well. Hence my above posting.

Believe me, I look for male hairs that fit my style, and look often. If I liked super long hair, man buns and super high-poly (my cutoff for male hairs is around 7,000 polys and for female hairs around 10,000) short hairs for males I'd be all set , but that's not of interest. So while I do have a decent number of male hairs, more options are always welcomed...especially when you have a neighborhood with an almost equal male-to-female ratio and don't want the same few hairs having to be used over and over again.


Most of my hairs are either shaggy or short. Not to say females don't have more, they do, but I have a good quantity of male hair too. Hat has a ton of short male hair, are you sure you have looked through them all? How many are you after?

Yes, you need a bed. Your room mate will go off to work and also leave the lot to 'run errands' and when he returns will have maxed motives. But, it is entirely possible for the motives to drop when on the lot, so anything your sim needs should also be available for the room mate. If you only have one bed you should be prepared for the room mate to use it sometimes!

I could have sworn that they never used it so I just stopped supplying them one unless it was a glitch or something at some point 🤔

I'm am not after some magic number of hairs. As stated before, while there are plenty of newer male hairs to be had, they do not interest me (being the picky person I am) for the reasons mentioned earlier. As for Hat's hairs, yes, I do have all of the ones of interest. In fact, Hat's 'hair dumps' are the reason I switched from Simgaroop's/Poppet's textures/colors to Pooklet's/io's textures/colors. I appreciate you trying to help though.

Being that I'm on Tumblr and also keep up with Simscave updates, sure I'll find more newer simple hairs that make the cut eventually. If so, I'll be sure and add links for others as well.

I can read I can’t help at all

Mainly because all I do is retexture has hair

That said
Being on tumblr and all that
Idk why the download with 8 sims and one hair texture is the most downloaded file from my download archive and i’m Getting seriously nervous what this means
Is it for the hair or the sims bc damn no one gives constructive critism in this community and once in a while I feel like I need it to improve my content

Reading this thread: https://forums.thesims.com/en_uS/di...soft-for-you/p6

I found this:

Do you remember when Maxis was torturing a sim ?

Will Wright's Maxis was more cruel than The Sims Studio.



That was not really under Will Wright - he basically did just Sims 1 and that was Nervous Subject from Sims 2 being taunted/ experimented on in StangeTown. By then Will Wright was working on Sims Online - I tested that game too for him - and he said he was mainly the person the Sims team came to when they had questions and such. He was mainly their sounding board. But he did not want to really do a Sequel - he said it terrified him. LOL. He never explained why - but his team did make that - the same people he worked on Sims 1 with of course. Sims 2 is also where Sims Guru Grant started as well.

I heard he did approve of testing Nervous Subject though - lol. He said who wouldn't - his mother was a possible crazy killer and his father was The Grim Reaper - Lol.

You have to keep in mind - you did not have to play that way or even that household unless you wanted to - so it was not as if experimenting on Sims was a main point of the game. It was just something in that town.

Wait what?
Here it is written that Will Wright did not want to make a sequel:

It reminds me of a history of Roller Coaster Tycoon series. Chris Sawyer created RCT1 and 2, but addons to the second part were created by Frontier Development. Chris said in one interview that he wanted to transfer work on the series to those who wanted to work on it. He passed it on to developers from Frontier Development. They also created RCT3. There, in credits indicate that Chris Sawyer was a consultant during the development of this game.

I don't have any idea where I got it, but in a folder I found a PDF of a book called "Players Unleashed! Modding The Sims and the Culture of Gaming." It's very academic and I can't make any sense of it really.

The title sounds like they just smashed together a bunch of vaguely relevant terms and phrases.

I've got one or two things on MTS, but most of my stuff is on my main site here:

I am reading it now, I don't know if I can make sense of it or not, it is very academic as it is someone's Thesis I think. Conclusions to follow once I have finished it.

Didn't we discuss that a few months back? I know I read a paper where someone had studied the social interactions on the site (thought it was a bit shallow myself so maybe that's not it).

I am pretty sure that what she mentioned is different.

This one is better, however to sumarize she took 299 pges to basically say "What makes The Sims a particularly interesting case in this respect is the fact that many of its players and modders are female." The subject of the paper was mostly The Sims and not The Sims 2, though The Sims 2 was mentioned a little. I thought she might have wrote more about the Modding Community and I was hoping that she would have done so.

<personal sort of rant> I am certainly well aware that a lot of the Sims players and Modders {Content Creators} are female, and I also know that some people characterize The Sims as a girls' game. I don't care I love The Sims and The Sims 2 and I Don't Like First Person Shooters {the most popular game type for males}. I guess that a lot of Males that are not Sims players might care, I certainly don't </end rant>

Anyway I don't think that the author ranted particularly, I don't want anyone to get that impression. I read the whole quickly as I am a very fast reader and it was interesting for the most part, it had a lot of history of computer games.

She was rather academic as I think it was a Thesis or something. Sort of Sociological Writing I would say, I took a few classes in Sociology at College, I understood it pretty well.

Opposing rant. Girls play all sort of games, you know. We don't just play the Sims. A lot of people in other games would be female as well, but you just don't know it.

I would not know that as I don't really play any other computer games except for Sims and the only game I ever talk about is Sims 2. On the PS2 I have played a few games other than Sims, but mostly Sims on that too. So I don't know anything about the proportion of males vs females in games other that the First Person Shooters are popular with males.

I am pretty sure that I did read as well. I like to read most anything. The one I just read about Modding and The Sims is better I think. Longer for sure. LOL.

The author of the Modding and Sims paper actually played The Sims and does know something about what she writes about. I spent about 5 hours reading the paper and i did enjoy it, I just wanted there to be more about the people that created content for the Sims, but there was nothing specific. If not about the specific people, some more detail about the Modding Community in general would have been nice. Anyway, I do recommend it if one likes something academic and sort of about Sociology.

Ahh well I like the regulars who post on MTS and I didn't know anyone from before Feb 2013 as that is when I first joined MTS. I don't think I posted much at first, but I can't recall lol.
