Hey there! I haven't been updating here for a while for various reasons, the big one being that my computer had been getting more and more painful to use. It was terribly slow and acting strangely -- I probably could have used a new Windows install, but that wouldn't have helped with the fact that the motherboard and processor were a decade old, and the video card only a year or two newer. It really killed my creativity to only be able to have one program open at a time, and that their processing times meant it could take up to half an hour just to build one package.

However! I rebuilt it completely a little while ago and it works like a dream, and while I've been trying out other games now that they'll actually run and run well (I can finally play Dragon Age ;_;), I haven't abandoned TS2. Far from it -- now that I have a good computer, creating is fun again because the tedious button pushing parts go a lot faster, and I can keep a whole bunch of programs open at once so referencing what I need to tweak is super easy.

I have a whole bunch of goodies I've already made to put up -- a ton of texture replacements for base game clothes, and nice, matching recolors of some base game build items -- and I'm in the process of making a whole bunch more. Immediately in the works are skirt conversions for teens, elders, and M sims, a new 8-skin Maxis matchy skinset, and a trans* bodyshape basic set.

(On that note: repositoried clothes, or no? I could either give the AM clothes textures and repository the other ages, or I could repository them all to the AF clothes. Thoughts?)

I'll also have some TS3 stuff up, but that will happen more sporadically because TS3 meshing and texturing is a giant headache (the in-game recolorability means the creating end is waaay more complicated) and most of the tutorials are bare bones.

I personally would prefer to not have repositoried clothing--I never know if something I want for teens I'd want for adults too--but that's just me. In any case, it's exciting to hear that you're busy busy creating! :D

I too wish the tutorials for ts3 creating were more extensive now that it's been out for 5 years. I couldn't figure out how to create patterns with more than one channel to save my life! :P It's a shame that there doesn't seem to be much for ts3 that needs creating, other than hair retextures and perhaps new paintings or clothing.

I've said it before, but a pattern tutorial would definitely be helpful. When I can play again, I may take a stab at trying hair. If not, I guess someone somewhere appreciates black tattoos, sims, and small lots, yes? :P
