I have a big weakness for fakepeeps outfits and triciamanly homes and don't get me started with newsea hairs (ts2 and other games converted to ts2) recolored with pooklet's hues.

Uh oh! My social bar is low - that's why I posted today.

#1853 Old 8th Jan 2018 at 4:47 AM
I think most of mine are fakepeeps clothing and michelle's recolors too. I have a decent amount of hair too. But I have a little of everything. Some wallpaper, floors, makeup....but clothing and hair seems to be my weakness, and recolors of anything....I have a lot of cc weaknesses lol. I'm at 7.12 gb now I remember when I said 5 gb was my limit

Apprently I made a mistake, the 4,3 GB was the size of my whole "Sims Ultimate Collection" folder in Documents.

My download folder is "just" 1.05 GB (current size after today's default replacement download binge).

there was never a next time.

edit: I just checked. it's over 5GB.... dear lord, I thought I was already deleting and skipping stuff I don't need...

Never forget Miss Piggi. First simmer who I really missed when they were gone. It was horrible, one day there was a beautiful site, and then there wasn't. I got so used to downloading her stuff to recolour everything, and then she wasn't here and everything became disorganised. I was grateful to her family for letting the site stay up for a little while so we could save what we needed. Thankfully Michelle came along with her recolours. I always use Miss Piggi's pet recolours in all my games, out of gratitude and remembrance. It's why I got so many GB of files, I started to collect everything I liked after that, even if I didn't need it, just in case. Heck, I even download things only for use in base games, or just for use with inteen version. (which I never use) I'm so glad we got the share thing now, but wish we could browse it to see what's missing and upload for others to use. (Yep, I even try to save the instructions and the TOU) Since MTS Simsfileshare, I've stopped collecting so much.

As to what's in my current game. Well it's a new install, I'm starting again. So far, in Riverblossom, with only one main hood, and one subneighbourhood, I've got 6.40gb, and I've only played one day of each household. No downtown grunge stuff yet, no schools, no prisons, no hospitals. But I'm trying to use the anystarter to see if I can use play more efficiently.

10,000 files you say. Sounds lovely. Are yours organised and ordered. No I'm not drooling or hinting. Just pondering.

i do try to organize my downloads but it never works because i'm like this:

"ok i'll finally start up the gam-oh look some more recolours! lets get them oh and ts3 to ts2 conversions..."

i think i have like 5 GB or something

My DL folder is currently 5.70 GB and my game launches in less than 10 minutes.
I need to get rid off the CC I don't like or I don't use though.

I think the most I've ever had is 8 gb or so, and that really slowed my game down, since it's on tiny laptop. I think I'm down to 2-3 gb in my new hood.......for now, at least. Every time I start a new neighborhood, I try to make a promise to myself to keep CC under a gigabyte.......but I never follow through :O

I try to keep it minimal
I would like some neighborhood CC though but I never really feel satisfied with what I can find

1.79 GB - I've just had a content changearound, and feel like having a game that loads in under 2 minutes, just for a change.

Oops? Lol, yes add moar!!

Seriously though, it doesn't matter if you want a little or a lot. Nothing better about either, nothing to feel bad about either.

I have about 5gb and almost 10,000 files. I think I like where my downloads folder is at, but there's some things I need to eventually take out. I'm just being too lazy to do it.
#1868 Old 16th May 2018 at 10:36 PM
473 MB - mostly just mods to give me more control over Sim finances and childcare, plus Inteen.

I have about 45,000 files, 7.18 GB. I don't know how long it takes to load since I do other things. It's probably about 20 minutes which is fine for me. Everything is extremely organized (probably too extremely), compressed, catalogued, binned, titled, alphabetized, load order adjusted, and so on. I spend too much time on it I think. Anyway, I like what I have, change things around as I find or make something new, and don't have any real problems.

I should compare with last year's back-up on one of my external hard drives as I have downloaded a lot of cc this year. Still, it's only 2.15GB for my normal hood and 2.02GB for my medieval hood.

I'm pretty sure I've replied to this topic before, but seeing it again made me check my downloads again. I'm actually pretty surprised; it's not as much as some people here. I have 3,391 files, which take up 1.15 GB. I would probably have more, but my game protests and turns pink if I try to stuff too much in it.

Since I'm running Compressorizor on the whole downloads folder, I can definitively say that there are 25950 files in there.

I thought it would take an hour or so . . .it's been five hours. Most of it's been compressed before, so I thought it would be quick, and I was feeling lazy to just pick out the new files from the folders . . . you know, Oh, I didn't have that palm tree in, and where's that shirt by Cat? put that in . . . in folders that have been compressed before. Sigh. Lesson learned.
