The time has come! I've been a flake, but I'm releasing that skin tone I was working on forever and a day ago. I do not have any expansion packs beyond showtime, but my game is fully patched. I've been playing around with it in game recently, and it seems to be working fine.

The skintone is for all ages except baby. Seems compatible with the in game muscle definition and sliders. The freckles do somewhat blend into the skin the dark you go, but as you can tell from the reference pictures, the freckles are still there. Credit for the bits and pieces of the skin go to:

-Emphera (Some of their first default skin, and bits from their sunny skin)
-Lady Frontbum Silk skin (Used as a base for the body.)
-Miss Skitty- Freckled base
- I did hand paint small features on the skin. Some areas I had to repaint some freckles as well.

Hello estranged simmers!

It's quite odd to be back on this journal. I've missed it. I still get urges to play the sims (it's like crack) and since I've been indulging in this urge, I've discovered I missed a ton of stuff! Like what, two expansion packs? A bajillion stuff packs? My wallet will end up hating me.

With that said, my estranged departure has been due to several reasons. First reason, and probably the biggest one to change my life, me and my long time boyfriend had split up. We were living together, and since then I've moved out on my own, and have been juggling with life. Second reason, I'm back in school! I've been pulling full time at school since last summer. It's exhausting but I keep trying to tell myself that it will be okay in the end. I've actually felt somewhat liberated that I've been so much on my own, and doing what I've always wanted to do to better myself.

With that said though, and this will seem crappy, I'm fund raising for a school trip! I have been in my school honor society and was nominated for their ISLP program. With being nominated I have the option to go to China for two weeks to study! I'm very excited, but I'm very financially strapped. Please consider helping a poor college student out. :)

I cried so hard watching this video. It's so moving, and I urge everyone to watch it.

I encourage you because this is a very serious issue, and this young man embodies how many people have felt dealing with this very issue. Watching his cards, and explaining how he feels brings back so many familiar feelings and emotions. To watch him stand up and be so strong is amazing, and bear his soul for the world to see is incredible.

He is an inspiration, and a very refreshing wake up call. All to often we don't hear this side of the story until it's to late. And those that try to share their story often go unheard or ignored. This young man though, has brought out a very serious issue, and makes it extremely personal.

Please watch, and realize that everyone hurts. Even if it isn't shown on the surface, we all have feelings, and we all need love from someone.
"You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face."
-Eleanor Roosevelt

No this isn't a request to make a hair. Sort of a request to help fix a hair. :) Basically I've never been able to focus on one project, and decided to take time away from working on the skin blend and my challenge with an attempt to complete my hair texture project. Basically I wanted to replace ALL of EA's hairs with a nicer texture. I was almost complete, and then I realized that I actually prefer a texture that looks similar to the EA one, and after a couple days of blending and such, I think I have a good compromise.

So I went back and started small, redoing hairs for Fast Lane and HELS. Whilst I was redoing them, I had a stroke of inspiration on how to make the hairs look...well better. After alpha editing some of meshes, and loading up the game, I was horrified to see terrible alpha issues! Pictures below for better description.

If anyone knows how to fix these issues and willing to help a complete meshing noob out I would very much appreciate it.

Sooo, I started a new sims challenge today. I kinda made up my own/making it up as I go along. It's very similar to other challenges out there, but I thought I would post the rules here to keep myself from cheating. :P

Rules:

Cas-

Sim can be Male or Female. They have to be a young adult though.
Can choose any items for appearance.
Must be named after foods. I.E. My first sim is named Apple Juice.
To determine traits, I went to a random number generator, and randomly generated numbers 1-82. I counted 82 traits total if you have all expansions.Obviously if you didn't you would count the number of traits you have access to and do 1- whatever number that is. Re-rolling would be allowed only if conflicting traits occurred.. Otherwise, no do overs!
The first 5 are the traits for your sim. No re-rolling!
Any voice/favorites combo are allowed, but astrological sign must be generated using the random number generator. No re-rolling!
LTW must be rolled on as well with a 1-6. 1-5 being what the game randomly generated, and 6 being the free for all slot. If the free for all slot is won, only wishes that do not pertain to jobs can be chosen. Wishes pertaining to profession can be. If you happen to choose a LTW that pertains to a job when you roll 1-5, the sim may not follow/pursue fulfilling that wish until they reach the adult stage.
Cannot create a spouse/pet/children. Your sim must "acquire" them throughout their life.

Living-

A sim is allowed to purchase a lot, and spend $500.00 on groceries, and then the remaining amount of money must be taken away. There are no restrictions on what they can buy, but it cannot exceed $500.00 and can only be purchasable through the grocery store.
No jobs or professions! Unless your sim reaches adulthood, but then they are only allowed to pick up professions. Except ghost hunting. No selling ghosts for easy money!
The sims spouse is allowed to have a profession/job if they already had one upon marriage. If they didn't have one, then one cannot be chosen for them.
Once babies are born, they are to live with the parents until they find a spouse. Only exception to this rule is if the prior generation happens to die before they wed.
Once they wed they have the option of moving out. It is not necessary, but obviously bigger families will want them to move out.
Teens born in game and up are allowed professions. No ghost hunting!
Sims are allowed to accept quests.
Sims can move or build new homes. Which ever is preferred. They cannot move until they have acquired $5,000.00 in household funds, but can continuously build as they earn.

Mod-

Awesomemod is allowed, because well it keeps the game from breaking. :P
No skill up faster mods!
No everything buyable in grocery store mods!
No mods to make opportunities appear faster!
Basically no mods. :P
Only exception is if the mod fixes a glitch.

I've decided I will continue this challenge for 5 generations. At 5 generations I will see how it's going and decide if I want to continue on. Obviously I started in Bridgeport because I know there's parks available with sleeping and bathing arrangements. So far, it's been super fun and super challenging. I've played almost 2 straight days, which I usually never play. My sim currently has $700.00 to her name, a small garden, and a sleeping bag. So it's been interesting to find fun things to do, social gatherings, or a place to simply shower. I will say though, it gives a whole new look on the game when you have to consider if your sim is going to a place that has a readily accessible bathroom if need be.

I'll add more rules as I go. To keep me honest. :)

more WIP

Edits made:

-Less spine shading on males and females back. I feel like it doesn't look like a trench anymore!
-Freckles made darker on female skin so they wouldn't disappear as the tone got darker.
-Reduced redness on darker skins.
-Male face had a weird "halo" around the mouth. Reduced it, may look into editing it some more.
-Less ab shading on males body.

As always, models have no makeup and no editing to pictures aside of bordering/resizing.
