Current Gaming:

So, I've been playing a lot of League of Legends recently, so I figured I'd post something about how cool it is. xD Anyway, it's pretty much the best free-to-play game out there, and there's no broken items and such you can buy with real money to give you an unfair advantage over non-paying players. I love this, as that is not always the case with free games. The only thing you HAVE to buy with real money is skins for the characters, but obviously it's only for aesthetics and doesn't really matter as far as gameplay goes.

Sooooooo, if anyone wants to try it out, CLICK HERE (my referral link, lol) and sign up! Once you do, add me as a friend, k? My username is "Shalua". If you have any questions you can just leave me a comment here. Actually, I'd love it if you'd leave me a comment. ;)

Since I like posting videos, here's a tournament video. Those crazy people who actually play seriously for tons of cash. Crazy.

Creative Outlets...

So, incase anyone was wondering what I've been up to recently... I've been doing more sims related stuff. Except this time, I'm dabbling in the Create a World tool for TS3. I've used it before, but I've been aching to get back into the creating & building aspects of the game. It's just a lot of fun! Anyway, in order to not wear myself out with it, I'm just working on it a bit at a time every day. More than an hour is just too long! I have other things I need to do! Hahaha!

Anyway, I'm done sculpting the general shape of my world, and I'm working on terrain painting and placing some trees in my areas that won't be needing any lots. Here's some eye-candy for you folks that are interested. It's just a couple screenshots of mountain/hilly areas that define the  edges of the world. These sections aren't necessarily complete yet, they're just the more done-looking sections so far. I do have something else somewhat "done", but I'm hiding it until later. :)

Incase you were wondering about the color difference, the first screenshot is without the "fog" effect and the second is with it. So the second is a bit less saturated looking.

Sims Picture Post

Well, by popular demand, (meaning my sister asked me to 3 times) I will be posting some pictures from my sims game. This particular save has an 8 person household that I've been playing, and it's pretty tiring to keep up with all of them. lol! Unfortunately, it's been over a week since I've played this save, so I'm not sure which sim is which... There are a lot of boys, okay? Plus I messed up and the screenies are all out of order, so keep in mind it isn't chronological. Just random snapshots from the game, cropped and re-sized in photoshop for your viewing pleasure. ;)

Birthday party for the twins:

Pillow fighting with her imaginary friend:

Took a toddler for a stroll, then to ride the silly springy thingys:

Takin' a stroll:

Writing thank-yous for...I don't remember. They didn't have a wedding party:

Preggers! And...mac n cheese


Pillow fight ensues:

And that's all for today. After all that, I think I might just go to sleep. I'm so exhausted from work and I actually don't think I have the energy to play any video games even. I just need to lie down and let my sore muscles recuperate. Maybe some candles, music, and a good book? Oh yes, and mini chocolate eclairs! <3

Sooooooooo pissed! I downloaded the Create a World (CAW) editor for the sims 3 and the ONE thing that keeps me from using it is the fact that it doesn't all fit on my screen! WHAT...the FUCK? My resolution is as big as I can make it! So, the sculpting and terrain painting tools I can use, but I can't change the falloff setting which is crucial to terrain painting. *eye roll* Whatever. A lot of people on the forums are saying they can't save any world files since the latest patch anyway.

I downloaded a few other worlds, and I'll at least do some lot building. Which takes me a while cause I like to furnish, and completely design the ins and outs of houses, PLUS I want to re-make my self sim and make them sim gods (learn every useful skill in the game basically and make them immortal) so that way I can spruce up the house even more. For example make the sinks/toilets unbreakable or self-cleaning, make a perfect garden, add collectibles, and/or paintings, and upgrade any other items on the lot I can. Makes it that much better for the downloader.

So, there's this awesome artist (who I commissioned on gaia online a little while back) and she's having a giveaway of TWO pieces of jewelry. Now, I would encourage you to go check it out, but I want them, so please don't! Haha, jk. Anyway, Miri/Erin's jewelry is sooooooo amazing, and I already have two necklaces she made and I love them! ^^

Anywho, here's the link to the giveaway:

The Sims 3 Generations

So...been playing the sims, and doing minimal other things. I like everything they've added to the game with this expansion pack, but this is really something that could have and should have been implemented in the game from the start! But no, why would they do that? This way they make more money! ...I'm sure there are people that have simply given up on supporting the sims series because of EA being retarded about it in so many ways, but I don't think it's really making that much of an impact or they might have actually released a WORKING GAME. I mean really. Five hours after the release, tons of people still couldn't play, because they work "working on the problem" meaning, they're trying to make a patch real quick so we can at least start the game up. (hell, we couldn't even INSTALL without this patch) Later, they'll come out with another patch to fix bugs in the expansion pack, and fix what this pack inevitable will mess up from the other packs.

So there's the end of my little rant. Don't get me wrong, I love the game and I enjoy it a lot. I just think it's in their best interest to work on some basic concepts, like releasing working products and maybe also when they make a new game (like sims 4) they start off with some aspects that they expanded upon in the last version of the game instead of rehashing old expansions. LIKE PETS. I want pets, dammit!
