It's occurred to me that probably there are some simmers who a) don't go on tumblr, and b) might want my CC but not know about it because tumblr. So I'm gonna do a couple posts of CC I've posted on tumblr, separated by theme, and then maybe a post of things I've put up elsewhere lately so it's all in one place.

This post is all the stuff I've done for my Wizarding World/Harry Potter game, most of which could also be useful for medieval simmers or... anyone who likes robes.

Okay, I have no idea if I got everything in here properly, but I'm going out the door in like two seconds, so. Let me know if I missed anything, or whatever.

TF Medieval Separates, using both halves of Dicreasy's edit of Iamliz13's TF Medieval alpha dress. Top uses textures from Hat's recolors of Zoej's chemise in Time Bomb while the bottom(/dress) uses Serena_Moonstone's Lady of the Realm in Ruby. Both have fat and preg morphs.


AF version is here (sort of), with more textures.

More coming soon- Androgyny and Rengal, probably, CF if I can manage to get workable textures for it (I have not looked, yet, at what textures are available for CF... or indeed if there is a CF version of the mesh, though I'm pretty sure there is). I am not entirely certain- aside from making sure there weren't glaring gaps- that either of these will play well with other separates. They were made to work together- however, I can say that the bottom didn't look too terrible over the few EAxis tops I tested it with when looking for gaps (at least, it looked no worse than any other bottom-only dress does, as far as I can tell).

Things I do not enjoy about aspects of Sims creation that require SimPE work- the way my eyes start to cross when I've been at it too long and all the numbers look the same. Things I do enjoy about SimPE- the knowledge that I can actually make things do stuff if there's a tutorial, especially if it just comes down to replacing things somehow, or poking at numbers that I know what they're supposed to do.

Also, is there any interest in an LBB/TeenLBB/Athletic Girl showerproof skin? And, um, if I were to use someone else's textures, would I need to edit them any to match up with anything, or is the mapping usually close enough for those meshes? And is there a- wait, no, I can google that, but I'll ask anyway- is there a Teen AG and/or a sexyfeet version of the AG nude bottom*? If not...IDK, I'll poke things, maybe make a request somewhere for a teen version, I'm not quite up to converting anything.

Anyway, it might all be for nothing, for all I know, I broke something. I've only just finished the SimPE work, testing is going to wait until my eyes stop trying to fall out.

*Right now I have a sexyfeet LBB and teen LBB skin with blockfoot AG for the adult females and maxis for everyone else. I'm very twitchy about this, but I don't want to reinvent the wheel here either.

Right, first off, WARNING: some of the textures seem to be inherently broken or weird or something, this is not something I did and I have no idea how to fix it or why it's happening, the non-sexyfeet versions do this too. If anyone can fix this, they will have my undying gratitude. EDIT: Hat fixed it! Check the comments for the necessary file.

Anyway, same as last time, one texture each, exactly the same as the ones I grabbed from Hat's wishlist, found under BV. All I did was edit the feet and, frequently, the UV map. Please let me know if I screwed something up, I'm basically slapping these together quickly and therefore may have missed something I can fix.

This is the first of many (likely just as half-assed) posts of Castaway Stories mesh edits. One texture each, found under Bon Voyage (in other words, exactly the same textures I got from Hat's wishlist). Toes might look a bit odd, as it was either remap the toes or remap everything else, so the toes may look like they would on non-sexyfeet-y skins even if the skins you use have toe textures. Better than leaf textures, though, or whatever that skirt thing in the middle is made of.*


*(Speaking of, UV maps on CS stuff? Absurd. Also on the list of CS absurdities, there are a lot of alpha layers to these things. Preg morphs are going to be fun. Good news is, I'm not even touching kids stuff until tomorrow, probably I'll start fighting with preg morphs tomorrow afternoon at the earliest.)

Fact- mesh edits are awesome. Not just as in 'somebody should do/has done this cool thing with this cool mesh', but as in 'I am having fun, and I am making things people might want, and it makes sense to my slightly odd brain that can't figure out flat texturing without months of practice (and still can't work out how to do anything other than copypasta or changing colors) and and and asdfghjkl MESHING'.

In case you cant tell, mesh editing makes me happy. If I weren't so lazy, I would do more of it. But, uh, there's some Castaway Stories edits coming soon, and if I can get over my stupid, stupid perfectionist issues, some random pregmorphs, especially for AM, because mpreg gives me warm fuzzy feelings (if you ask why, you will likely get a long ramble about gender that you probably didn't want to know, so, uh, I wouldn't recommend it, but if you do want to know, go for it, I'll tell you).

Next big 'learn to do this' regarding meshing- bodyshape conversions. Because I need more meshes for Aquilegia's androgyny set. (Right now I'm using a lot of old gothplague stuff or Pooklet's edits of gothplague's stuff, or stuff based on pooklet's edits... yeah. Need more variety.)

Also, mapping is... not as fun, but not as hard for me as I expected. I am probably going to spend stupid amounts of time making things not result in weirdly colored toes.

Oh, wow, I haven't posted here since last year. I'm still simming! Just... quietly. I've been playing a prosperity-style neighborhood that I'm sort of absurdly in love with, it's the longest I've ever played a neighborhood- I'm about to hit the second fall rotation, I have sims in college who were toddlers when I started and I think about ten or twelve households... it's great, I should picspam about it sometime. I'm also about to start a new legacy, and that one's getting a story (probably commentary style, but whatever, I just want to share my sims' lives with everyone). It's set in a sort of steampunk-western-Victorian fantasy world, loosely inspired by a book I read recently and particularly one of the lead characters thereof (Sam Starbuck's The Dead Isle, google it if you don't know it, it is amazing and Jack Baker is lovely), and I have a vague story for my founder but mostly this is going to be a commentary style legacy because I am bad at story legacies.

Anyway, here is my founder (still a work in progress, I need to download better goggles and find a better hairstyle or at least retexture the bandanna around his head because it doesn't suit him at ALL).two bodyshop pictures behind the cut )

ETA: another picture with new goggles )

I don't know if I've mentioned this here, yet, given how lazy I am about blogging, but a few months back- before Christmas, at least, though I can't recall when- my CD/DVD drive on my laptop began refusing to read certain disks, including three or four of my sims 2 disks. I first noticed it with the newest ones, including the disk I played from. So I tried a no-CD crack, which worked for about two or three play sessions before it suddenly refused to work. So then, I figured I'd uninstall the EPs that weren't behaving with my disk drive- everything from Free Time onward- and play from my digital download of Bon Voyage. Didn't work, so I decided maybe a reinstall up through BV was in order. This is how I discovered that it also won't read my Sims 2 Deluxe disk- after I'd uninstalled. I figured, whatever, I have Sims 3, I'll spend my simming time with my pudding people. Got bored with that a couple weeks ago, started playing Castaway Stories again. Loved it, but it just made me miss TS2 more.

So I've come up with a solution- finally- which also nets me the one stuff pack I don't have (though several won't be installed, this time around). I've bought Double Deluxe and it's downloading now. First things first, I'm starting a new medieval neighborhood to do a legacy challenge (well, technically, first things first, I'm installing every EP that will install, but once that's done...). I can't wait, I've missed my medieval sims so much, seriously.

Picspam coming in a day or two. Possibly a legacy story coming soon after that.

Because the world needs MOAR meshes with sexyfeet. And these are awesome, useful meshes. And because I am picky about barefoot meshes and must have sexyfeet on everything.bodyshop pic of the edited meshes

In the RAR* are the meshes for these sets- Biblets for Niblets, Babes in Dreamland, Basic Boxers for Kids, Babydoll Pajamas for Girls, and the onesie from the Teddies for Toddlers Collection. Just let these overwrite the originals.

All five meshes found here at

*(yes, all in one RAR, because I'm lazy like that, and it's just five meshes so it's not too hard to find the right one, right?) This entry was originally posted at Please comment there using OpenID.

I desperately want Apartment Life- I have ever since I heard about the witches, I think- but I can't get it because I can't afford it right now. And if I could, I'd have the lovely internal debate of "do I pull all my hacks and install it now, or do I wait until they're updated for it and install it then?", which would eventually end in "pull the hacks, I'm not that patient", as it tends to.

And everyone is talking about getting it, it seems, even though I'm sure my mind is exaggerating things, and I wish I could just go out and get it right now. And I CAN'T, and it's just making me even more impatient, and it's driving me insane.

(In other news, I do already have a neighborhood set up to test it out in/play with it in, in case the hacks I use regularly aren't updated by the time I *do* get it. The neighborhood is completely empty and won't be touched at all until I get it....)

(Also, for anyone who has it- please, go ahead and tell me how awesome it is! I'll sit here jealously, but I'll be thankful in the long run.)

I've been taking out my frustrations with the game and the mess the computer explodeyness made on Strangetown's premade families- primarily the Beakers and the Curious brothers. I'm debating writing up some sort of story for them, I've certainly got the shots I need, but mostly I'm just making them have kids and ruin relationships- and build new ones, sometimes.

I've said before that my favorite premade sim is Nervous Subject. At that point, that just meant I liked him more than most of the others, which wasn't saying much- I didn't play most of the others. But, after playing him through the havoc I've wreaked on Strangetown (leaving him possibly the sanest and happiest of all the sims I played there so far), I absolutely love him. He's stuck as a single parent of a baby girl, having 'escaped' the Beaker house (with help, but I won't say from who- that story idea is looking better and better by the moment, and I don't want to give away any spoilers!), and he's happy as a clam, despite how rough things are for him right now- next to no money, small child to watch, and having to skill for a job he doesn't really like, but that pays well enough it's worth it. And he's so sweet with his little girl, too, it's possibly the cutest thing ever.

Circe and Loki are fun to play, too- they're having some marital troubles, though, and I'll probably split them up, but I might not- it all depends on whether i decide to let Loki get over what he's mad at her about- it's pretty big, so I'm not sure if I will or not. Especially since he seems like he might be happy elsewhere.

The Curious brothers are awesome, though- especially Vidcund. He and Pascal both had alien kids, who are also awesome- and mostly very cute, even the noseless one. (There are three, because Vidcund had twins when I really, really didn't want more than one small child in the house. Argh.)

I've gotten rather attatched to this bunch, really, so I'll probably play some sort of hood-wide legacy-style thing or something with them. I like the idea of taking an entire hood through several generations.

Also- I tossed a couple "essential" (in my mind) hacks in my game- ACR, same sex marriage hack, and pregforall. And my favorite replacement Polli Tech, but not until after Pascal's kid was born (that's the noseless one, obviously)- that one reminded me to put him in, actually...

As the subject of this entry implies, I've decided my new legacy will be much plottier than my failed explody one. Details behind cut, in case you don't want spoiler-y stuff before I start posting the legacy- which I may put on the exchange instead of here (because I really don't know what I'm doing with a lot of the LJ stuff).

Sooner or later, I'll get the writing part done so I can at least get the prologue out. For now, though, just know that it will be good.

(Is anyone actually reading this?)

"That hood" being Riverblossom Hills. Every time I play it, something weird happens soon after. I played it right before I lost the Leos. My new legacy was going to be set there- not anymore, because of the weird glitchyness I got- I'll be restarting in Pleasantview or somewhere, I think. Maybe Strangetown, I love Strangetown...

Put simply, I despise Riverblossom Hills. The first time I played it, it was just for the sake of a Seasons test-run, because I wanted to know what playing a plantsim is like. The second (and now FINAL) time was when I added subhoods (uni and downtown) so I could play a legacy there. Never again. And there may, perhaps, be pics posted at some point of why I love my founder for the O'Connells- he autonomously argued with the plantsim-lady's husband, who I dislike because his family was the one I'd been playing prior to losing the Leos.

Edit- I've decided the legacy will be in a custom hood called Motherlodia (one of my favorites that I've made). A quick warning, though- there are random pointless playables around. There is also my simself, who was put with one of my favorite legacy sims, and their son- and the legacy sim's alien daughter, who I dislike because she has Alien Nice Point Syndrome and no nose to speak of. She may be mercilessly mocked, or I might just ignore her. Probably the latter, as her father isn't someone you want to get on the bad side of.

I figure it's better than having people confused as to who I am if I comment with my main LJ account.

This is the simming journal of Sellan/SilvainTheShadow/Shadalan. I've written the Leo Legacy, which exploded as gen. 2 hit teen, unfotunately, and played through a few undocumented generations of two other legacies. I'm starting a new one- the O'Connell family- who may or may not get a story. If they do, it will *probably* be posted here, because otherwise, this journal will start looking really empty, which seems pointless to me.

So, um... keep an eye out for it.
