Hello Anon :]
Well, I’ve had better times, lately I’ve been normal-a-bit-bad-at-queue :} But I think that I need to post more every day, sadly I only can post a Max of 6 pics for day, but I mostly upload 4, a while ago I used to post 12 every day, how weird!
And since I don’t play too often, I need to make last the pics ;D
"Hello! I want to sell some gems please"
This reminds me to unistall a mod, by the way, I made an Elixir Shop, forgetting that Enekjaer already had one
Hello Anon :]
Dan’s traits are
But if he is a joke some day —or nerd or rebeld— then I’ll add another
Because, in case you didn’t know, he’s a Paparazzi
Since I haven’t found this career yet
The Scouts! I found that file on TS3 WA packages :]
kwsimblr said: please David how do you add other traits in the sims 3 ?
Well, the way I talk about at the top is a bit hard, I could do it once, you can influence your sim to be a nerd, jock or rebeld —You Need Uni EP— and so the game lets you choose a new trait. But I think that with ITF comes something, or other EP.
However there are Mods always, I think you can add them with the NRaas MasterController, or this mod called “More Traits" :] But I don’t like to cheat that much LOL
Well, today and tomorrow are the last days I have queue, since I have practices tomorrow I cannot play today and tomorrow I’ll be tired for sure, so maybe I will post again on Thursday or Friday, or the next week, who Knows?
I hope you all have a fantastic week :]
This dude needs a better wage, it was 3am and he was there, waiting for someone
This is one of the reasons I want a wizard again
But my heart cannot handle it </3
Hello Anon! :]
Those are nice questions, I’m going to tell you a story :}
Ayelén happens to name also Adele Bradley, and also Jake Blair
Weird, isn’t it? Well I created Jake a while ago in March of 2013
Then I said that he was so attractive so I saved him into the bin, I tried to Transform him into a woman, and she looked So Nice!
So I saved her and gave as a Gift Exchange of Easter Hunt organized by my friend on March-April, the gift was for mischievoussims and you can take a look Here
Later that year I felt I wanted to gift a sim to my dear serenasims and Jake was the Best Option because I already loved him, and sent to her with all the love and fun
He and she were always cute, I loved them :]
So after Dan wished —and that’s not fake— to have a Butler, and the sent sim was a woman, I gave her a Huge makeover, by replacing all the whole sim with this marvellous one that was already dressed and looked nice, I felt bad changing her name so I left the one that the game assigned her
But they —Dan & Ayelén— felt attracted, maybe for the Skin, traits —which I don’t know— and favorites plus age and more, but like the 90% of sims in the town are attracted to Dan and that’s not a joke, even Grandma is! And some dudes, even my Tommy who is gay with Ryan :)
I still don’t plan in make them a couple, I hadn’t thought on it yet, but it is not a bad idea, both are cute and truth be told: by both Jake and Ayelén, Dan was created
Dan has never had a Girlfriend, I had bad experiences with sims before, I started loosing the love for them, and I don’t want that it happens with Dan, maybe who knows? They start dating Sloooooooowly
Plus I don’t want him forever alone —and I don’t want to add the Asexuallity and the Aromanticity to my game because it’d not be fair (Not fair because he feels things for some sims actually but he focuses in other things pretty much Tesla but not that much)— but I also want to see how the family would look in the future, I’m talking about the EP
This was tremendous question Anon, I liked but let’s see what happens, they enjoy their lives and I realize his wishes, that’s why I like him :]
Have a really cute day! BTW this makes me remember everlasting-garden ♥
You’re very welcome anon, it was a huge post though, but whatever, it can help other people too :]
Have a sweet day!
Hello Anon, I did once with this sim of mine
His name is Trystan Burn, he’s supposed to be Hot LOL
But he is any similar to the dude I “inspired” from, I think that the game is Veeery Dark —maybe as S3 when new but S2 is clearer—, look this great Screenshot
It is so clear OH MY GOD, but napoleonfrost suggested some stuff as turn off the silly music when they change of emotion, who knows when I will play it since I hate Origin and I’m not a fan of accounts…
But I love how he walks, it’s cool! It’s so good that Walking is a skill LOL
I liked the multitasking, and a few more things, still not a fan of the dark it is and the “shine” it has, I’m so used of custom content…
However, have a sweet day Anon!
Hello Anon! :]
Well, I can help you with some stuff I tried, too many things I’d say…
600 packages are not too much, in my Mods folder I have 210 Packages but I Really have 1417 files plus 61 plus 80 so I have 1558 files as total :]
So I’ve tried too many things, look this unordered list —before you start reading let me say you that this become a “Solve Your Problem” guide LOL:
Merging packages: The “First” Way
Merging Packages: The “Cool” Way
With CCMagic —which is Great and saves you a Lot of time!—, at start it can be confusing but this guide is good, not the one I learned from but still nice.
The thing with CCMagic is that I’m very organized and I have All in folders and they contain all by category so all is even more organized, look:And there I save the things that have a prefix :]
I rename all my files
A friend of mine aka Kilhian told me that CCMagic made her game run a lot lot faster because she had around 10GB of CC plus All AroundTheSims files
Having packages of Less than 200MB - 250MB is recommended
So make sure any of your Merged files is more than 200MB or 250MB
Cleaning your Save
It happens that sometimes your save can be of 1GB or so :0 My first save file had that size and the load times changed Too Much!
What I did too much times was this:
To Clean it through Save Cleaner which is the modern and programmed way to do the old way which is shown here at NRaas, this can reduce your file a lot But have this in mind:It will delete All the Thumbnails of your sims and the sims in the town plus some more things, the game will generate that again and again so clean it often, one per two weeks is nice —if you play too much!Thing I cannot do so often
Or Moving your Sims again
It happens that sometimes the world can get buggy or have too many sims, I don’t know if you’d ever had that problem when the game saves forever but I’ve had, so you may want to une all your sims in a house and then saving it to library with their pictures, paintings and remembers in their pocket or library and load a new world or the same as a new game and start again :]
Saving As instead of Save As
The woman at the video says —I think— that EA suggest to always Save As instead of Save, I learnt and could discover that Saving As would take a little less time for me to save —which is strange— and the save does not get corrupted as it used to get, I’ve had the same save from January or so, but don’t be excesive, use better the NRaas Saver for that, a Pop-up appears every 30 minutes asking you for save and give a name
Watch the Video here
Monitoring your Town
This game has weird things, so many I’d say, but one of these are the Wild Animals and the constant creation of NPC (Non Playable Character) in the town
So for that I use a few Mods as are:
- NRaas Registrer —which assigns a job to a NPC sim in a register and can limit the number of animals in the town.
- NRaas ErrorTrap —which resets sims when nessesary.
- NRaas Overwatch —which deletes a lot of fake cars in the town, turn off radios and tv when you don’t need them.
- Bluegenjutsu No Route Fail and No Foot Tapping Animation You need to register! —I think this one disables the animation when sims cannot pass through something and more stuff.
- Twoftmama Route Fix You need to register! —this fixes the routes on the game, It’s nice, I use the Flavor 2.
Seeing What your game Reads and why!
There is a Great tool called Process Monitor and that thing can say you what your game is Reading and not why, you discover the why iin the next link, I learnt from Here the SimsWiki
But I will give you a tip when you’re angry at the game, While loading and you think it’s been a while press either ALT+TAB or the Windows Key, open your ProcessMonitor.exe —previously configured— and if the game is reading per example “TheSimsSupernatural” folder toooooo much and veeery often or another EP or SP enter to the game again —if you play Fullscreen— and then start pressing random keys such as ESC | Space Bar | Enter | Shift | and in a minute or less the game will Load! That’s weird, isn’t it? But I could play by knowing that
Deleting your Caches
It is good to do this, the game saves in the caches even the recolors you don’t used —And Multiple times!— so it starts getting bigger and bigger, every once a month or the time you want is nice :)
Remember that are those:
- compositorCache.package → This thing contains All your CASt presets and rendered objects
- simCompositorCache.package → This things contains all your sims textures and CASt presets rendered too
- socialCache.package → This thing downloads the news at TS3 site and your friends activity and Showtime shows and more
- scriptCache.package → Try to delete this if you have problems with Mods or removed one and the game acts weird
- Your WoldCaches folder can be deleted if you’re really hardcore LOL Or delete one by one
- Your Thumbnails folder, you can leave DownloadsThumbnails.package if you use the Launcher
Being Really Hardcore
This means to delete your The Sims 3 folder as this tutorial says, but don’t be That hardcore, save some useful files as these:
- userPresets.package → Your CASt presets and saved patterns and colors
- Options.ini → Your options of the game
- DeviceConfig.log → Other Options
- Your folders: Collections | ContentPatch | DCCache and the CCMerged.package inside it | Downloads if you have any | Exports if you have any, try to remove the files on this thing | InstalledWorlds if you have any | Library because OH MY GOD | SavedSims | Saves | Screenshots —those are the most important files of the game.
Or just Rename the folder at Electronics Arts for The Sims 3 Old and move the files I say to not delete
Move your DCCache Files to Mods!
I’ve not tried this one yet, but I’ve read that it can make your game faster, you basically move the files from the DCCache folder aka dcdb0.dbc —and so— and dcdb0.ebc —if you have legit Store content— to the Mods folder in another subfolder called “DCCache” and modifying the Resource.cfg by this thing —I suppose you have an Overrides Subfolder too:
Compressing your Stuff!
This is more useful before merge all the CC
You can do it with the Compressorizer Redux, I learnded from Mirrah —I’m sorry that it does not have HTML format but w/e— See it here
In Case your game is Crashing
Disabling some Memories of sims
I use this mod called Only Important Memories and it keeps your save smaller than a regular EA one because it does not saves the “OH I went to a Park 100 Times this week” Memories, plus it is nice
And I think that it is All, long enough LOL
But I hope you can find a solution to your problem, some people uses this program Razer Game Booster, and don’t be downloading all the things you see, there are so many broken things and a lot that need to be recategorized, see how here. By the way I have a few other mods.
Plus I save my Mods in the Overrides Folder, plus the content I don’t want to merge or just does not appears in Packages, and CCMagic has its own folder but leave it alone
Have a Beautiful day Anon! Let me know if you understood LOL
