rambling — sneak peek + warnings.

Heya, lovely readers! I’m super excited to talk to you guys today 🙂

Computer

I finally bought my first very own laptop! After much consideration, I chose the ASUS VivoBook Pro 15, which I’m very happy with because it’s a gaming laptop with a minimal gold design (not your typical boyish red-and-black laptop haha). It’s a tremendous step upwards from the silly Surface which I gave up on last year; Intel Core i7 2.8 GHz, 1TB HDD, 8 GM RAM + NVIDIA GTX1050, which is awesome for the affordable price I bought it at (totally worth a summer of washing dishes for hours on end). So there shouldn’t be any problems concerning memory/storage now!

Blog Updates 

I have done major updating to my blog, adding new pages of juicy information, and revamping all the old. I’ve created extensive summaries on each generation, compiled some game maintenance tips, and more! Although, I am still in the process of updating Characters.

I have written lengthy summaries for each generation on this page. If you would like, please read the Generation 3 summary (and perhaps the previous two!) before I post the next chapter. Since the last chapter was about a year and a half ago, I am sure many of you would appreciate a recap. There are details in the existing chapters that will be significant later on. Confession, when I went back to edit the chapters, I kinda edited… a lot. There were even more inconsistencies and plot holes than I realised, so a couple things -like Cherry and Gabriel’s initial dynamic- have changed to match with what I’m writing now. I do recommend rereading the generation so things make proper sense, and it would be an even better refresher than the summaries 😛 Of course there are still issues, but fixing them would mean changing plotlines, and that would mess things up even more.

Warnings

I know I wrote a whole post of warnings for this generation before, but things have changed quite a bit plot-wise since then. There will be prominent themes of mental health, violence, drug use and death. If these topics are triggering or sensitive to you, please don’t read the chapters. I am trying my best to handle them carefully but I will put a thorough warning before each chapter, and please decide if you want to read accordingly.

Sneak Peek

Finally, there’s going to be a rather distinct change in the pictures. I’ve installed this beautiful program called Reshade (pretty much everyone on Tumblr uses it) which adds amazing post-processing effects to your screenshots in game. The depth of field is a tad strong for me right now, but I will show a couple pictures below! There will also probably be subtle differences in the characters’ appearances. When I reinstalled I redid my cc collection, so I might have forgotten some old things, and I’ve got new makeup I might not be able to resist using!

A setting I am using in the next chapter!

Alright, that’s it! My goal is to post 3.10 on Sunday 11th. University might get in the way (although I’m enjoying it so far!) but if no big problems crop up I should be able to reach that goal. I also bought the Pets EP to celebrate being able to play Sims again, I have missed playing and posting sooooo much! See you guys hopefully next Sunday ❤

  1. Aaah, so exciting! I really need to catch up! 😀
    So glad to see you got ReShade now! It’s so awesome and so cool to play around with ❤ When I got to the last picture I couldn't help but laugh. I took pictures of that SAME ROAD just other day when playing around with it! (Main difference was it was nighttime).
    Anyway, have lots of fun with your games and your post-processing effects. It sounds like a pretty bad ass laptop!

    • Haha, you’ve got one week 😉
      Yeah, it’s amazing how much it changes with a few clicks! And ooh yes it is quite an aesthetic road 😀
      The laptop is performing well so far, the game had very little lag- but that might be because the saves are fresh and I still have a lot of cc to download >.<

    • But I sincerely congratulate you on your new purchase and hope you have lots of fun crafting all your Sims related creations while I study the various types of muscle tissue. I am now about to learn about Cahn-Ingold-Prelog rules. I hope I have time to read your chapters.

      • LOL I’m most likely going to become just as busy soon, but the upside to you being more busy is that you’re probably going to end up earning more money than me later! So just think of that through your next 7 years of pain 😂
        Biology actually sounds disgusting though 😳
