christmas is so much worse as you get older it’s like “what do you want this year?” “a sense of purpose”

"a career" "financial security" "a sex life" "tuition for grad school" "alcohol" "a nap" "socks would be nice"

So uh, I installed the Ultimate Collection. Everything is working fine excluding this little problem here. This blue box thingy should be bigger and more to the right.. right? It usually shows more items and doesn’t cover the sim, I’m quite sure in that.
How could I possibly fix this?

I’m 17 years old and I still have no idea how to take a compliment

I’m 21 going on 22 and I have the same problem.

I’m fucking thirty and I still don’t know how to take a compliment.

simscompletecollection asked: I'm pretty confused what you're even complaining about. What do you mean they're making everything like reality tv and such? I'm not trying to be mean, I just don't get what you're saying. And they've always had wacky stories, that have always been completely optional and easy to ignore, but what makes these so much worse?

The whole bro thing and storylines we’ve seen just come off as pure reality TV trash or lowbrow pop culture references to me.

Going to the gym to work out angrily and “throwing a real rager” as the highlight of gameplay? Making a household based on The New Girl and using the word “friend-zoned”? Obama and Kim Jong-un sims? Turning a self sufficient doctor into a creepy mooch bro? Turning an Arabic woman who died when her daughters were children into a white MILF who’s competing with her daughter for a man? Dying of laughter over a man peeing his pants?

This is what they’re choosing to highlight, and it’s awful. And if they think this awfulness is what we want, then why should I expect the rest of it to be good?

Good marketing should not make you think “Oh I can just ignore that when I buy it” and “Maybe they’ll release what I really want in a later EP!” It’s not my job to convince myself to buy the game, and I’m not going to write fanfic in my head about how fun it’s gonna be when I ignore everything that the creators consider the best part.

The majority of the sims fandom is made up of introverts/girls/women, and we don’t seem to be the demographic they’re targeting. The best of the marketing I’ve seen are the Game of Thrones and Pride renders, which are actually things that appeal to me and my friends, but those have been ruined by everything that’s followed them.

Skell says it best \o/

I encountered all of these errors with Sims 2 on Windows 8.1. Here are the ways I fixed them. If someone gives me the name of a good file sharing site, I can upload my graphics rules file so you don’t have to make the changes yourself, you can just plop mine right in.

There’s also an extremely useful and informative thread about graphics issues and how to get your game to recognise your graphics card at leefish.nl, here.

I hope all of you end up living in houses similar to the ones you built for your sims to live in
