Date Posted: 26th Sep 2016 at 2:01 AM

I have at last finished the screenshots and posted my recolour set for the basegame Oaktowne East Side Dining Chair. The title picture also previews the Orb of Centring, resting on the Cone of Centring and attended by a neutral witch townie:

The Orb and Pillars of Enlightenment

Date Posted: 5th Sep 2016 at 5:17 PM

Very early this morning I posted the second of my crystal ball projects, The Orb & Pillars of Enlightenment. The Orb supports the teaching of the Lifelong Happiness skill, and also enables the Good Witch (or Warlock) NPC to put her magic to use, either blessing the current lot or healing a sick Sim.

Opportunity Updates and Lady Valentina's Crystal Ball

Date Posted: 29th Aug 2016 at 6:07 AM

On August 28th, I was pleased to finally release the first in my series of crystal balls, Lady Valentina's Crystal Ball, with Holder. The Crystal Ball was updated on August 30th.

The following projects were also updated on August 28, 2016. This release fixed an error on complex lots: with Auto-Invite On it was possible for two NPCs to appear and try to teach at the same skill building book:

The Sims 2 Opportunity Pack Reading Desk & Accessories

Lady Ravendancer's Magical Arcana

The Grimms' Storybooks

The Parenting Life Skill Guide, with Deco Books

Decorative Bag and Decorative Sack: Additional Surface Recolours

Date Posted: 27th Aug 2016 at 7:38 PM

Deco Bag & Deco Sack, with Recolours

There were six surface recolours that were listed in this project's text and included in the uploaded archive that were not supplied with a screenshot. I have now included these six recolours in a new picture, shown here and in the original post. Ironically, I consider these the best quality and most useful recolours in the set.

BUGFIX August 25, 2016: Changed Two Conflicting Filenames

Date Posted: 26th Aug 2016 at 5:46 PM

64 HiRes Wood Basegame Vase Collection Recolours

BUGFIX August 25, 2016: Changed Two Conflicting Filenames

The filenames for the Red Oak and Santa Maria recolours were the same as those released in the Tiny Filesize Basegame Vase Collection, therefore they would overwrite them. This release differentiates the new filenames by adding a "2" at the end, i.e. sdSculptureVaseCollectionBG_vase_RedOak2 and sdSculptureVaseCollectionBG_vase_SantaMaria2, so as to remove the conflict.

Please download sdSculptureVaseCollectionBG_vase_HiResNaturalWood for the update.

Looking Into the Future

Date Posted: 9th Aug 2016 at 5:10 AM

I am currently enjoying the creation of a set of crystal balls, each dedicated to raising a different Life Skill, and each with one or two holders or stands. The first to be released is Lady Valentina's Crystal Ball, in which the Nightlife and FreeTime Fortune Teller teaches Couples Counseling as she practices her divination.

The screenshot below shows a newly inducted townie warlock in the order of neutral magic, recruited to teach at The Orb of Clarity.

Medievalish Downloads *** CLOSED TO COMMENT ***

Some members of the community have been puzzled as to what happened to my uploads at Plumb Bob Keep (PBK). It is a odd story but it can be told in just a few words. I will also outline my progress and plans towards re-posting them here at MTS.

Two members at PBK had suggested that a thread had become non-productive, with one member saying, "Enough already. Its getting too freakin toxic". I quoted both members and added, "It looks like the same thing has just been said twice. This thread was toxic to begin with." It would appear that this statement alone must have caused me to be banned from the site, although I can only guess since I was not informed. This occurrence seems all the more strange in that a little later the site owner completely deleted the whole thread in question - was it indeed too toxic? In any event, for whatever reason the owner later removed all my content threads from PBK as well, a site-destructive response that just does not make any sense to me.

As a consequence of making this simple statement, StephSim and myself were obliged to respond to persistent, rude and fallacious attacks from a PBK member, all of which have been archived. A senior moderator has now removed all replies to this journal entry, and I agree with this course of action. These issues will be dealt with elsewhere. Please consider this article as *** CLOSED TO COMMENT ***. Any further comments will be summarily deleted.

I have already uploaded the following PBK content to MTS:

The FreeTime "Broken-In" Desk Pooklet Expansion Set - originally part of the Merchant Guild set, these recolours were posted here at MTS without change.

The Sims 2 Opportunity Pack Lectern & Accessories - the "Worshipful Company" Fourth Element Tapestries from the Merchant Guild project were included in this thread without change.

Ye Olde Cooper's Muck for the Masses - re-posted without change.

A Trash Pit for All Seasons, with Effects & Recolours - significantly upgraded from the PBK version, if you liked the original please do download the new version.

Basegame Neighbourhood Volcanoes, with Effects & Tunnels - very slightly changed to give more descriptive catalogue entries. Probably not worth downloading a second time.

Ye Olde Cooper's Food Contents Recolours - these items were part of the Merchant Guild set. The non-HiRes grapes and rice recolours have been noticeably improved, so it is worth getting the update.

Deco Bag & Deco Sack, with Recolours - re-posted without change. These were also part of the Merchant Guild set.

The most significant content that remains to be re-posted are the core files from the Merchant Guild which allow Sims to buy and sell food from barrels and sacks, allowing merchants to make a living through trade. I significantly upgraded this set shortly after the original post so that it would also support trade in harvestable crops and fish, as well as theft, donation, vandalism and blessing of food stocks. This upgrade was never quite finished, but it will be a future priority.

There were also several new or updated barrel items in the Merchant Guild set that will be re-posted when I overhaul the original Ye Olde Cooper set - which is long overdue.

Finally, Ye Olde Cooper's Grapes for Stomping is left as a low priority item for now because I feel that it was a prototype that needs to be fully reworked.

Thank you for you patience during this transition, and for all the wonderful support I have received, both at PBK and MTS.

When I designed these projects I included some international language support. Unfortunately, non-English language users experienced incorrect labeling and erratic menu operation because of this. My appreciation goes to Alraris for alerting me to these issues. These releases are intentionally unilingual, reducing filesizes by up to 50%, which is of benefit to all users.
