Custom Content Creators and Simpe...
Date Posted: 29th Aug 2007 at 7:33 AM
I was an avid Sims 1 player, and remember how excited I was once I discovered that I didn't just have to use what came with the game, but that I could also download tons of custom content from so many places.
However, it seems to me that the quality of custom content for The Sims 2 has far exceeded my personal expectations, and I am very appreciative of the time and effort so many good creators have and are putting into their creations.
I can honestly say that I do not believe I would be playing The Sims 2 now (as good a game as it is) if it were not for the custom content. I should know, I have over 30,000
custom content downloads in my folder!
I know, its a bit excessive, but I like to have a little bit of everything, especially of hair and cars, which probably take up about 50% of my download folder.
It is because of the hard work of others that prompted me to pay the community back a little...give something back. Because for me, it is the sims community that makes The Sims 2 one of the best games for me ever....in fact, *the* best game ever for me. Perhaps Sims 3 will surpass that...but we have some time to go yet.
I downloaded SimPE a while back and never used it, so recently I had a go at recolouring a sofa that I like. For some reason, I couldn't quite get a hang of the program itself, and ended up with results I didn't quite expect. Nonetheless, I am going to keep trying, and perhaps start with something much easier (I think), such as a bed cover. :-)
For now, I'm stretching my wings in a slightly different direction from what I've uploaded so far, and doing some wallpaper sets.
Thank you for reading my ramblings.
