I CAN PLAY SIMS 2 IN FULL SCREEN!

I have no idea what suddenly happened, but I can play Sims 2 in 1920 x 1080 resolution! No more stamp-sized play screen! :D



So yeah, this is the quality I get from doing screenshots the "proper" way. I'm NOT going to bother doing this for any of my current legacies, but at least now I can, in case I decide to do a more "serious" project.

YAYAYAYAY!!!! I was just wondering the other day if you were still stuck with the need-a-magnifying-glass screen size, and thinking what a shame it was we couldn't figure out what the heck. I'm happy to hear it finally worked itself out. I've had that happen before--something suddenly starts working that wasn't working before, and huh? But yay! That must have been awful! I know my headaches wouldn't allow me to look at anything that small!

I have no idea what happened here! Playing in full screen actually seemed a bit too large, LOL. That, and it lagged a bit, so I took pity on the poor laptop. Now I play in 1440 x 900. Also, I'm cleaning out all the CC I never use, like untucked copies of regular pants. The guy I used as the "model" for adult male clothes has pubes, I discovered. x(

BTW, you have to see the neighbours I made for Ursula and Isaac to harass. No one else will see them until it's time for a new Edgarcy update, but I have to show someone! I'm so proud, LOL!

1440 X 900 is my screen size. Maybe it's the magic number for some people, LOL! I've really got to clean out my CC, too, instead of adding to it. I've done hair and clothes before, but I have a lot of old objects that look like smooth 3-D things with no texture, and I should get rid of those because there are plenty of prettier things with which to replace them! When I started playing this game, I had no idea what a time sucker it was going to be! But it's soooo fuuuuuunnn.

Oh goody! I want to see the poor people who are at the mercy of a psychopathic couple! Woe be unto them!

P.S. I forgot to tell you I finished the first round of our uglacy yesterday! I have about 70 pictures to write commentary for, and knowing that I'm finished has made me lazy! I feel like kicking back and doing other things instead. XD Hopefully I can get back in gear and write the commentary so I can post MK'la's last update (for a while), then all I'll have to do is figure out how to get Kult Friday sent off to Anaisa. If she still wants to play? Otherwise I guess you and Narrator can have him.

I haven't seen or heard anything that suggests she's been active in the community at all, lately. :( Maybe I could try messaging her on GoS, if she doesn't reply at her journal.

Oh, I am still in the community! I use a different username on MTS (meowcatmeowkitty) and I've been frequenting that site these days. I have been checking here, though. Glad I didn't miss this!

Anyway, I do still want to continue things. Because I'm such a terrible procrastinator, neither of the neighborhoods I planned on using are ready, though. I could do the neighborhood I've been playing these days, though there's only one sim in that neighborhood I'd considering making him him babies with. I should post a pic of her when I can get one. She's not hideous, but not pretty either, and maybe their features would mesh badly.

So this is the woman I'd consider letting Kult have kids with in the neighborhood I've been playing lately. Definitely not the ugliest sim ever, but that chin (or rather, lack thereof) and profile...

She's a born in-game spare from an undocumented Progress Over Time challenge I'm doing in a probably-not-gonna-happen bid to do every single possible sims 2 challenge with the same family. Well, that should include a Round Robin, so this is a good opportunity. Dubhlan here will be kicking off a String Me challenge, and having him move in and have kids with her shouldn't interfere with that (besides possibly making things a bit harder).

The reason I say "have kids with her" rather than "marry her" is that she's a lesbian. So if I go through with this, Dubhlan's girlfriend will be bi and poly, living with both her girlfriend and boyfriend. Kult will be her sperm donor rather than her partner. Because that totally would've flown in the Victorian era.

Yes, it's the Victorian era in the neighborhood. I'm sure my narrator (whom I should really name!) will be super inspired by the Starblooms' historic japery and Victorian goffickness.

Victorian poly-romance sounds like a good take on the next generation! Kult has to start a cult, after all! Victorians were huge on the clandistine stuff.

Oh, and I forgot to add: a spare from the next generation of sims in the neighborhood will be starting a Bad Old Days challenge. I expect the eras might get out of sync that way, though (The Bad Old Days challenge is more detailed about decades than the Progress Over Time Challenge).

You mean the sadist challenge I wrote last year? :D Cool!

If you'd rather use one of the neighborhoods you'd originally planned on but aren't ready yet, you could still do that. There's really no rush, and there shouldn't be time pressure on any of us. Speaking for myself, I have plenty of other projects, so it's not like I'll be waiting with nothing to do for my next turn at the uglacy.

It's quite alright. I'm preparing my game for the next round as I speak. I have a few ideas, and I've even made a terrible recolor CC dress for a character.

I'm not quite ready to start (Dubhlan is still a teenager, so I want to age her and her girlfriend up to adults first, which will take a few rotations), but you can go ahead and send Kult Friday. How do you want to go about doing that?

Wouldn't the easiest just be to upload the offspring to Dropbox or similar?

I'm going to put the boys up for download when I post MK'la's last update, which should be this week. There will be links in that post, so you can download Kult there. You can take Studs Axalot, too, if you want. He and Kult Friday are BFFFFFFFFFs.
