Ace of Clubs
Date Posted: 6th Apr 2012 at 3:34 AM
Now that I've gotten my 100 uploads at MTS, I'll be focusing more on my side sites such as Leefish and our new group site Ace Creators
The Ace Creators is a collabo project between me, Anubis360, Juliana Sims, and Elexis. I'm so lucky to be working with such a talented group of creators.
Our grand opening was a few days ago, so check out the new site!
Oh what madness....

I recently discovered that my TS3 graphics were not maxed. I've been taking all my screenshots with high sim detail...but...I can go up to VERY high (oooooOOOoooo). Part of me wants to retake all my upload screenshots...again...
In case you ever wonder why the chat is down....

I wrote this story in response to the IRC chat being down for a day or so. I thought it was hilarious, and I wanted to preserve it.

"Same thing that we do everyday, HL....TAKE OVER THE WORLD!"
After declaring this, HL jumped in her most eeeeeeeeevil outfit ever--a pink muumuu with matching slippers--and headed towards the door.
Midway across the door threshold, HL thought to herself. "Oh no! I forgot to check my Scorecard today! Gotta see how many gnomes and Pescados are downloading my stuffeths!"
So she rushed off in a pink highpoly blur to Mod The Sims. After verifying enough werewolves were downloading her window set, she returned back to her evil plan. But before she got out of her desk chair another, even more eeeeeeevil thought came to her mind and she rushed into the chat!
Once she joined the room and ChanServ gave her her pink fluffy hat and scepter, she spotted her target. The most talented, most awesome, most made of win creator ever in the history of the sims. That creator was the fair and noble Leesester who was just sitting in her bowl.
Normally the most awesome creator in chat would be daluved1, but she was busy purplefying her fingernails and toes that night, and was not available.
Ahem...anyways. Poor Lee was just sitting her bowl, being all sweet and innocent when BAM, HL appeared! Her and her high poly boobies jumped into Lee's bowl, splashing water everywhere. Ya see, HL was jealous of Lee and wanted to be rid of her for once and for all.
Lee let out a dainty scream, "ooooh halp, I'm being attacked!" Lucky for her Sparkle heard, and came rushing to help. By that time HL had Lee in a head lock and was forcing her to download from the *gasp* Exchange! (dun dun dun) Lee's eyes were almost melting by the time Sparkle came up behind HL and clocked her in the head with a large turkey drumstick, Flintstones style.
With a bottle of eyeball bleach in hand, Sparkle tried her best to save Lee's eyesight but it was too late. Lee had suffered severe retina burn from the exchange. Sparkle and Lee were so busy mourning the loss of lee's eyes that they did not notice that HL had risen!!
With all the force that she could muster, HL threw herself at Lee and Sparkle! But oh no! HL tripped over her own pink slipped foot and crashed into the side of the bowl. The impact was so hard that Lee's bowl toppled over and sent a tsunami of water that was headed straight towards the IRC server!
Before they could scream "Oh by golly!" the water had shortened out the servers and the chat crashed.
And all but HL was sad, because she truly had just done the most evil thing. Knocked down all communication for the MTSers. Now we're all forced to.....talk to actual people!
Thank you Cmo...

Hehehehe, so I've been playing with the new pose animator and have tried my hand at my own custom pose.
I'm no traelia, but for a first time animator it looks pretty good.

I've decided to call it quits on creating, at least for a little while. The spring semester at school has started back up for me so I really need to focus on my school work. I'm carrying 17 credit hours this semester which is a lot when paired with a part-time job and student teaching. =/
Also, I'm a little burnt out and discouraged from my last couple of projects. First and foremost I create for me
and share with the community once I
consider my creation awesome. I take lots of time hand drawing my textures and refuse to photoskin any. Never have, never will. I'm sorry, but that pencil precise, hard line, overly sharp shit is awful to look at in game. I prefer to have my clothing look soft and loose--and TBH a little blurry--because it's what I
like in my
game. I realize some don't like my style, and that's okay. I do listen to your input (believe me) but my texturing style is not something I wish to drastically change anytime soon. So, I'm just going to step back from creating a bit because I'm getting frustrated.
Anyhoos, I hate to bitch and whine but sometimes you just have to get stuff off your chest (and non of my RL friends play the sims, so I can't vent to them :p). I do appreciate all of the kind words and thanks I've received, so please don't think I'm being ungrateful.
I'm not leaving the site, I'll still be hanging around doing modly stuff so feel free to PM as usual. I'm just not going to be uploading for a while.
I love you all!

Ever since the My Downloads feature was reintroduced, I've gone back and thanked every post I downloaded from. Not only because I like to see that shiny 100% thanked badge, but I also would have wanted my object thanked as well.
Although I much rather get a nice "thank you" comment, seeing the thanks count grow is just as heart warming. Like, honestly, I make creations partly for me but mostly for the community. And, knowing that it's appreciated makes the long nights of creating worth it.
What is a little saddening is the thanks to downloads ratios. For example, my new Bare Essentials beds set has--as of now--about 1500 downloads...yet only 200 hundred thanks. It's not that hard to click the little thumbs up button....I know, I know...it's just another statistic but jeeeeez.....It kinda makes me not want to continue making add ons for the set.

So I've been dabbling with TS3 object creation and so far....I've made a fence...yep....one whole fence. Actually the fences I made are larger versions of the shrubbery fences and they came out really fantastic. I should have them for download soon.
Ironically I tried to make a second object, a simple Rubik's Cube. It's nothing but one box in Milkshape with a simple box UV map. However...I cannot get the damn thing in game!
How can I make a fence, but not a stupid cube o.O
I'm going to dabble some more with the cube and hopefully be able to successfully get it in game.
