Update on Computer Woes

Hello all -- Good news is my laptop is back up and running! Yea! Bad news is my Sims2 downloads folder was too large to retrieve and had to be sacrificed. (tears) Which is why it is taking me forever to find and download the CC I once had in order for my lots to look the way I created them to look. I am learning that CC downloaded years back is no longer available because the Sims websites and artists are gone!! (horrors!).

My 'Luxury Beach House' I was about to upload (when my hard drive died) is slowly but surely being put back together. I hope to have it ready in the next few weeks. In the meantime, I have a community lot HR department store I am also preparing to upload which did not suffer greatly since most of the content is Maxis. I am playing it now to check for quirks. It is turning out to be a fun lot to play.

I hope everyone is doing well-- best simming to all! ... tey

Computer Woes

Hello all,

My hard-drive died!! I have not been able to get on for so long and I am posting from another computer right now. I am fighting to save the many Sims2 creations I have been working on--including my 'Luxury Beach House' I was hoping to upload next. Boo-hoo (tears and  more tears)! I am trynig not to throw up. The computer tech is going to try and retrieve the main folders: characters, neighborhoods, and my lots folder so I am hoping not all will be a loss. I will be back as soon as I am able! Missing everyone!!! ... tey

Quick Update!

I just checked and my 'Beach Haven' lots I submitted today have already been approved and are set to publish on June 12! Yippee! ... tey

Lo and Behold!

Hello fellow simmers, I have finally submitted the Maxis version and Custom Content (CC) version of my 'Beach Haven' beach lots. They are both a traditional style beach house as can be found up and down the Texas coast. They are loaded with everything needed to have fun in the sun and into the night!

I will soon be submitting a higher-end beach home sure to please and satisfy the more 'luxury' seeking sim's palate. I will try to submit a couple of screenshots over the next couple of days. In addition, I have been working on more walls--just having a little trouble finding wainscoat and borders to my liking. I am so picky, picky!

You know, I decided to get back in gear with my Sims 2 creations as a way to keep me busy until I am able to replace my computer for one that will support Sims 3. Then, I will be able to create for Sims 2 and Sims 3! Yea!

Thanks to all the TSR creators that are sharing their Sims 3 experiences and creations already! I have marked several Sims 3 lots that are simply awesome--but I would'nt expect anything less from our amazingly talented TSR creators! Thank you all for sharing your wonderful creations and feeding my simming addictions! LOL!

I am off for now--wishing everyone health and wealth of mind, body, and spirit!... tey


I have been anticipating hitting the 3000 downloads mark for the past few weeks and when I logged on today I noticed I had finally made it! Yippee! I want to thank everyone who has taken the time to download some of my creations and I hope you and your Sims are truly enjoying them in your game.

I have several new creations in a holding pattern right now due to some real life 'family' drama that I am caught up in which has me somewhat distracted. However, I do manage to sign-in most every day to check my page and to see what some of my favorite creators are creating as well as download fabulous creations--which is one of my favorite things to do on TSR!

Thanks again to all! I love TSR! :-) ... tey

Beach Haven Update--

I have been out of commission since about Tuesday when a dreaded stomach bug struck my household and both of my grandkids (2 and 3 yrs) came down with it one after the other and then I came down with it! Yuck! and I do mean Yuck! Today is the first I have logged on in days so I have not been able to hunt for treasure chests or work on wrapping up both of my Beach Haven renditions for uploading. :-(  Hopefully, I will be able to do so within the next week. I hope everyone stays well out there!! :-) ... tey

Current 'Beach Haven' Lot Creation in Progress...

I will be offering two versions of my upcoming 'Beach Haven' lot due to the eye-openig experience I had after following all of the steps in CycloneSue's TSR tutorial in regard to uploading clean lots for install (thank you CycloneSue!). I never realized how weird my lots would look if someone downloaded my lot creations with the Maxis 'Sims 2 Body Shop Package Installer' until I followed all of the steps in testing an install back into my game.
     Because the substitutions of Maxis items for the Custom Content (CC) I used were so out of place and defeinitely not Maxis items I would hace chosen I decided to submit two versions of my Beach Haven lot. One version will be all Maxis of my choosing and not random substitutions and the other version will be my original creation that will include my chosen CC from some of my favorite TSR creators. I also intend to not only credit the TSR artists but to also identify each CC item by name so simmers who are interested can easily finf the custom content for download. I am hoping the extra effort will make a more enjoyable download experience for those who choose to download my lots.
     Below are images of one of my favorite ares from my Beach Haven lot so you can have an idea of the variations in the two versions:

Maxis version of Exercise and Sauna area:

Version with Custom Content:
