omg cow omg
No, I mean it! Who the hell are these Sims supposed to be?

A fair few...Collapse )
I'm going to say no. Which is fine, but that's why you ask for help if you need it.

The text beneath the teaser image at the source:
One day, a strange woman told Noah Bowman that Aaron has to go to college in BellsJones. Noah asked why must he go there. He is to be fonding a Legacy of 26 Generations for A to Z said the starange woman. Noah can I leave a messge for him or note. The Strange woman said yes but short one.

omg cow omg
EAxis textures and hairstyles leave much to be desired, this is true. However, I'm not sure how this particular item is an improvement.

The idea is cool- make your Sims look like they've taken the scissors to themselves in a drunken stupor (I've done it to my own hair)- but the execution is iffy.

Just one today.Collapse )

My favourite comment?
That's actually pretty groovy. I've hated that hair mesh for so long, it looks so... juvenile with maxis textures. This cut is superior. And I dig the burgundy.

o rly?
Legacies are hard to do, especially if you want people to like them. I've only tried one, so I don't consider myself a great legacy writer by any means, but I'd like to think it came out better than this. I won't link you to the post itself, because it's on a personal journal, but I will link you to the poster's update in thesims2. It's an unlocked community post in a large community, so...

All I have to say about it is OMGLIPS.

Two for you!Collapse )
20th-Dec-2008 09:43 pm - Harry Potter: OotP?
o rly?
I was looking for videos to post here, and came across this version of HP: OotP. I was not disappointed. Unfortunately, the creator has disabled embedding, but you can watch the video here.

Things terribly wrong with this video:

- No sets.
- Poor video card quality, as seen by the bars through the characters when they move too fast.
- All of the voices are the same, even Petunia's, because the creator apparently used the audiobook for the dialogue.

If you're going to put something out there for public consumption, at least put some effort into it. There is too much HP-related custom content available to excuse this mess. Even using only Maxis-created stuff, this could have been done much better.

The unintentional sexual innuendo is a riot, though.

To keep the post legal, here are some screenshots behind the cut.Collapse )
17th-Oct-2008 02:44 am - No Such Thing as a Free...Computer?
yeah okay
If you have Free Time, your Sims have been visited by Rod Humble. He's a nice guy who rings your Sims' doorbells and leaves a free computer for them to play The Sims 3 on (and all the other games, but it's an advertising gimmick). Apparently this doesn't sit well with dickhurt, who has created a hack that charges the household §1595 for the computer. Why? The computer is only worth §800! And if your Sims don't have the §1595, they go into the red.

Since images are required...Collapse )

He has also created such pointless hacks as this, which charges your Sims money, a la Sims 1, whenever they prepare a meal. Again, why? Who the hell knows?

Another lame graphic to illustrate his point.Collapse )
24th-Sep-2008 12:15 am - More Fug Than Should Be Legal.
omg cow omg
If you're familiar with Parsimonious, you know that it's a treasure trove of WTFery. Decent-looking men's clothes are hard enough to find as it is, so I don't understand why they have to make it worse.

Some examples of their fine work.Collapse )

I'd post the three ugliest from each theme, but I don't want to break your eyeballs. Go have a look for yourself.
26th-Aug-2008 05:56 pm - Murder!
omg cow omg
1.) This poor-quality video even comes with an extreme violence warning. And no backstory whatsoever.

More top cinema this way.Collapse )
24th-Aug-2008 02:30 pm - Celebrity Sims...Maybe.
o rly?
Sometimes it's hard to make a Sim look like a real person, and I have nothing but respect for those who try. But... sometimes all that effort really doesn't pay off, and you get things like this.


This is meant to be Zooey Deschanel. I don't see it, but you can find comparison pics at the source.

More here.Collapse )
