Site Maintenance

March 7th, 2015

I did some site maintenance over the last few days. There were a lot of images that were broken and not showing up, but they should now all be fixed. Please let me know if you stumble upon any other images that are broken…or anything else that may not be working.

It has been strange coming back to this site after being gone for so long. It really set my nostalgia aflame and made me miss working on my story "The Monster and the Maiden". It's a story that I'd like to come back to sometime; I'm not sure how I'd go about it though. I don't know if I would want to do just a text version of the story, although I think I'd really miss having images associated with it (even though that could be one of the most frustrating part of putting the story together) or if I continue mixing text with screenshots then do I use Sims 2 (which might not be an option if I can't find my old downloads and saves) or do I try to use Sims 3 or Sims 4 (even though that might prove to be too strange since the characters wouldn't look the same anymore). These are the thoughts that always trip me up and make me put the idea of working on my story on the back burner again.

Anyway, just thinking out loud.

    I think the missing images I saw were mostly from Monster and Maiden. I'm looking forward to reading that story as I only just got through the first story with Brandee and her double.

    I would love if you decided to come back to Monster and Maiden. I enjoy your stories quite a bit. As for which Sims to use … if you can't find your Sims 2 save files, is it easy enough to recreate everything with Sims 2 again? I haven't looked to see how many custom content sites are still out there for Sims 2 but I can't imagine many would have closed given that both SIms 3 and Sims 4 weren't too popular. Although I will say that 4 makes building things a lot quicker than any of its predecessors. It's the most enjoyable aspect I find to the newest addition to the Sim family. (However, it's been months now since I played 4 – have been too distracted by Dreamfall Chapters and my 3DS).

    Well, hopefully all the images are fixed. A few years ago, I had to implement an security change on the site and I think that broke the images.

    If I can't find my Sims 2 files, I think it would be really hard to recreate the files since I had a ton of mods and some of them (especially the skins) were ones that I created myself. I'm pretty sure they are on an old hard drive in my previous computer. Luckily, my husband hasn't gotten rid of it yet. *crosses fingers*

    I'm hoping new expansions will make the Sims 4 more interesting to play. It just seems to basic at the moment.

    Hurray! So glad that they are fixed! It was always disappointing to come for my nostalgia fix and not see any pics. Thank you for taking the time to put them back up. Hope all is well for you!

    Hi, Kiwi! :D Thank you! The broken images were really bugging me. I'm glad I finally got around to fixing them. Things are going pretty well for me. *knock on wood* I hope you are doing well too! *big hug*

    hello, its wonderful to see someone who cares enough to come back after a long hiatus to fix broken pictures/links. i was hoping to add a file to the list of things to be recovered: the just lips remix set, if you still have it (i saw above that you dont have your game files anymore??). if these files are long gone but i find someone with them, might you allow them to share with me?

    post with files in question: http://sims2.atomicspacekitty.com/downloads/just-lips-remix

    thanks much! i hope its not too much to ask for.

    Thank you for the wonderful compliment, twofee. I'm glad that you found the Just Lips set on MTS. I'll make a note to update my post with link to the MTS page. :)

    Take care and I hope you have a great weekend!
