An update on Sullivan

It's been a while and I know not everyone follows me on Twitter or is a member at N99, so I thought I would pop in and tell you all what's going on.

Not long after my last update, my computer started showing signs that it didn't have much more life in it. It couldn't really cope with any game any more without crashing or freezing (except Sims 2 and some really non-demanding games, like Stardew Valley). I do love my TS2 but I also play a lot of other games, so it was time for an upgrade. That, unfortunately, meant an upgrade to Windows 10. Knowing the issues people have had with Windows 10, I was very nervous about this!

A few weeks later, I have Sims 2 successfully installed (went with the Ultimate Collection this time). I initially had some pink flashing, even after I did the 4GB patch and Graphics Rule Maker. This was after less than a sim day playing and with NO custom content. A friend on Twitter was kind enough to point me in the direction of this guide. It took me a while to get around to trying it but I finally did the other day and managed to play for four or five sim days with no pink flashing. To be clear, I just quit out at that point - I still didn't see any pink flashing, nor did I crash.

What I plan to do next is play another session with no CC, just to make sure everything still seems good. Then I will slowly add my CC in, testing as I go. I do need to get rid of some stuff anyway, so that will be an opportunity for me to have a close look at everything. Hopefully, once I'm done, the load will not be too much and my final step will be to test with Sullivan. That's still safely backed up, not that I need it, because my old hard drive is still in my PC.

Keep your fingers crossed that these next steps go well for me, as I'm very keen to continue with TS2 and Sullivan!

How to live alone

Round 37: May 2046 (Autumn)

Anthony Moretti is 29.

I’m still keeping my dream of buying a bar alive but it’s not going to become reality for a very long time. Even with my most recent raise, the bank will still only give me a loan of $15,000 maximum and I need something closer to $50,000.

Lot tour: Miles and Matilda's new place

For those who don't know, we had a huge storm in Sydney last Tuesday. Many lost power, including me. It took four days for it to be restored and then another four to get the internet up and running again. So I wanted to get this up earlier and I also wanted to get started on Anthony's update earlier but that was unfortunately not possible. I'm going to try to visit Anthony on the weekend but in the meantime, I thought I'd share Miles and Matilda's new place with you.

This is a TS2 rebuild of a TS3 house from (I think?) Sunset Valley by Danie. I'm still not totally pleased with the window placement at the front but it's okay inside, so I'm living with it!

Lot tour: the new Moretti Hall

After I played my last two uni sessions, I decided I hated my dorms. I've had them for a loooong time now and they've served me well but I'm sick of them. So I started picking away at a replacement for Moretti Hall. 

So here is the new Moretti Hall! It's a redo of an EA dorm. In the bin, it has the imaginative name of Small Dorm with 6 Rooms but it also shows up in Académie Le Tour as Lam Plaza Dormitory. I decided to go with an EA base over a custom one because it's been many years since I've played an EA dorm and seeing my decorating has improved since then, I figured I could make something decent out of one now!

My finds blog

After many frustrations with Tumblr (too long, boring and honestly infuriating to go into here), I've decided to start a finds blog. This will help me keep track of my CC but also let me share the cool stuff I come across with you all as well.

The link is here:

At some point, I'll add it to my sidebar as well! Hope you all enjoy!
