Kinda forgot all about it until I saw the Mares post on it. Oops! I was working when it got released and forgot to get it . .I should probably wait til I am off for two days before buying it just so I don't miss work lol xD. I can NOT WAIT to play with the dragons. Squee! Hurry up Monday! Anyone else getting it? I do have just about all the worlds except Aurora Skies, hmm will probably uninstall one of the world I just dunno which one, probably Lunar Lakes since I have no save for that world anymore.
EDIT: Ok so I did buy it just before I head to bed here. I got the Gold Version and I do want the new faire, however, I am not paying full price for it just to get the archery, violin and black dragon. Screw you EA, I can wait.
A new competition by POTATOBANANA on the Officials that is all about NOT using pose player. As most competitions allow the use of Pose Player it is interesting to have a competition that doesn't allow it. I, and I am sure there are many others out there that remember a time where we had no pose player and had to use in game traits for our poses or pose combine. With such an a competition now available, I decided to do an article on it for Just Sims Magazine and ask the question: Pose Player or Non Pose Player Competitions? Thank you to everyone who participated in the survey!
I've been meaning to post this for awhile now. I won second (or Runner Up) in Posh Princess ages ago. I am also working on the finale of Nature's Finest. I've won first place for the last 4 or 5 assignments in a row so hopefully *fingers crossed and knocks on wood* I can pull off one more win. And as Sadie is so popular on my Model Showcase (see above), I will be uploading her once the competition is over.
In the mean time, here is my siggy for Posh Princess
I'm not sure HOW many remember I used to do a e-zine on the side when I had SimsSanctuary, but in any case, I saw Eli (jewittalex) advertising Just Sims Magazine and needing staff to run it. Vana (Vanadis) is the Junior Editor, with Eli, of course, running it. After debating for some time, I decided to go with being a Community Rep on the Officials. Right now I have a thread stationed in Sims and Modelling. I'm the most active there and this will force me to also get out of that forum and into others again, since I used to be all over the map.
I am rather excited to get started as I think it will be fun to be involved in a new project.
I'll be adding both the Just Sims website and the link to my thread on my sidebar, but here they are for you:
Just Sims Magazine
Get The Sims Connection
I shall also be handling the position as the Community Rep for Unbound.
Does this feel too soon? I'm not done with TS3 yet. There is still a lot of potential yet for the Game, but it seems that after this Fall the only thing available content wise from EA will be in the Store. I mean sure, I'm going to run out and buy it, better yet pre-order it, as I do with just about all of the Sims games for TS3, but maybe they could have waited an extra year on this, maybe two. I know there have been some simmers who have been harping for TS4 for quite a while now, but enjoy what you have now (the unbroken parts).
And with Twallan retiring after TS3, I can only HOPE that with Maxis back involved with the Sims Franchise, it won't be the cock up TS3 was for quite a lot of people. We can only hope the old Maxis team is ready to take the Sims to an all new level.
As for the sims in the piccies, they don't look half bad, maybe EA has finally realized that most don't like their default eyes and skin. This will probably bite me in the ass, and I'll totally be prepared for an "I told you so", but I'm going to be optimistic and hope that everything turns out alright with it. *fingers crossed.
And a bit of info from Hydra.
So, with TS3 still receiving updates to the store and TS4 coming out and probably with its own store, things are certainly going to be interesting. To still get content for TS3 (and you know the prices are gonna jack up for all the sets that won't be coming out on EP or SP) and a brand new game with brand new content to contend with, I'm looking for simmers to split on this one, in which case, was it too soon of EA and Maxis to bring out TS4?
