Mist is so pretty right now.

Just a few little screenshots of FF14, which I may be totally obsessed with. I just moved from Gilgamesh to Balmung, and it’s a totally different environment! I love it, especially all the RPers everywhere. What I really want, though, is a group of people who aren’t in such a rush. I find the endgame mentality of speedrun everything, everything is only for Coil really disheartening… :( Especially with Castrum and Praetorium, which must be awesome when played as intended.

Anyone wanna give me a poke? I am Tefh Tayuun and Kiwiwi Kiwi (question the point of alts all you want, sometimes I just want to be a Lalafell). You can also join my free company if you want ;p

AH SCREW IT everyone should just join my FC. We’re the Blizzaga Brigade. We’re tiny, and need more bodies. Our goal is to do everything (including Coil eventually), but to do it at a chilled out pace. Thus the, uh, ice theme we have going. Yes.

I think I want to make an ask blog featuring the STC versions of Chaotix. You know, the ones that live in a bizarre fusion of every Sonic Special Stage ever, blended with Silver Age Marvel. The ones that are apparently under the strong impression that they are actually superheroes.
Anyone up for it, in this style? (I’m kinda looking to practice).

The Sims 3 - Where Are We Now?

So, my new computer is Windows 8, which reportedly has compatibility issues with my Sims 2 of choice. That, and I’ve misplaced my copy of Bon Voyage, and I’m sulking because it’s one of my favourite expansions (up there with Seasons).

I am now going to give Sims 3 another go.

Now, the last time I played the Sims 3 was shortly after Ambitions was released, so it’s been a long time. I have little memory of the CC things, but I do remember this: it was a huge hassle to install and combine the files, and now I just don’t even remember what I’m doing or how I’m doing it. When googling for info, I just feel lost - there’s so much available it’s hard to sift through, and some of it’s really outdated. After all, this game has been around for years, and the community has thoroughly explored it at this point, I’m sure!

SO.

1. How do I install custom content, and minimise the resulting lag?

2. Are there any absolute must-haves - big mods and such?

3. Who are your recommended creators? I prefer things that fit into the game’s existing style.

4. Which expansions are most highly recommended and why? (Like how for Sims 2, I would always say you needed at least Nightlife and Seasons). I have Ambitions, World Adventures, and soon I will have Seasons.

Give it to me in basics, I’m a noob.

Thank you very much!

(spoilers) re: I don’t get why some people are able to forgive Zelos but not Raven.

konnei:

I mean Raven had an actual reason to do what he did.

So did Zelos - he was collaborating with Kratos, and did what he did on Kratos’ instruction (hinted at in the main game, confirmed during Zelos’ scene at Heimdall) in order to allow Lloyd to wield the Eternal Sword. Yes, he was working for three different teams from the start, but “from the start” is the important part here - he was never completely on Lloyd’s side until his “betrayal” scene, and never planned on being. Having friends that trust and support you was something foreign to him, and he didn’t expect it at all.

The thing about Zelos’ betrayal is that it was not actually a betrayal. It was him actually coming around to Lloyd’s side, finally making a decision that he was gonna stick with and support Lloyd, consequences be damned!

He just happened to be in a very convenient position (being considered an ally of Cruxis) to gain the Aionis that Kratos wanted/needed to make the Eternal Ring, so - in Flanoir, before you meet the doctor - Kratos asked him to infiltrate Cruxis and retrieve it.

So yes, people can forgive him, because that was when he finally got through all his trust issues and tried to prove himself a loyal companion by doing something worthwhile.

Now, I apologise if you did not intend to imply Zelos had no reasons, and I love Raven too, but… I think in terms of reasons for betrayal, Zelos’ reasons (get an object required to defeat the big bad and accomplish all the party’s goals) outweigh Raven’s (Alexei controls the thing he needs to live).

I’M SORRY BUT. My brother gave me this for my birthday. I think I just geeked out. And a part of me doesn’t want to eat the chocolates for fear of ruining it.

YEAH SO I haven’t been simming much lately. Laptop has developed a rather noisy fan, and I’m worried about overheating the blasted thing. But I have been knitting a lot. Therefore? New knitting tumblr, because I’ve been wanting to blog my knitting forever and it’s about time I stopped harassing my Plurk with it.

New Sims Blog

I went ahead and made a separate Sims Tumblr. I fail at Tumblr, though, so I still can’t figure out what the heck I’m doing, ahaha.

I wanted to have some 100x100 icons of a human Espio. I have a very specific idea in my head on what a human Espio would look like (mostly because I prefer his STC/Fleetway incarnation), so of course I had to draw them myself!
Including a chibi one with a turnip, because Fleetway.
