The Sims 2 Farm pt 3
meetmetotheriver replied to your post: Sims 2 Farm pt 2
I certainly wouldn’t mind some retextures, if you end up doing them. :)
I’m considering logically what would be the best way to retexture them so they fit in the Sims game. I’m actually thinking I might need to rip a horse texture off TS3, or possibly use parts of the TS2 dog texture to make this happen.

I am also considering that I might need to remesh that dragon a bit, & that if I’m pulling Milkshape out for this junk I may as well have a go at attempting to clone the cow object to make a llama. Because llamas. & because the cow animations & options seem like they would work really well as a llama. & then the little voice in the back of my head goes “nooooo, that would be haaaaard *whine*” because my brain seems to keep skipping over the fact that they have NPC objects attached to them when I’m planning this. & that NPC object means I’d have to tear the whole package apart to figure out how it works & try to clone the NPC object too, or just let the llama override the cow which I kind of want because cows scare me but then the farm set wouldn’t be complete anymore & blehhh.

TL;DR I find myself also wanting to do very time-intensive things involving attempting to add a new animal to the set.
So I’m figuring out how much effort I really want to throw into this before I even touch it, & making some new hairs. Which I already know I’m capable of doing.
I still love these eyes. Even in Bodyshop they look so… alive, I guess?
I uploaded them HERE if you want.
I’m working on hair retextures.

Psst! Turns out those animals were stolen from Rebecah! Get the newer and proper versions here: affinitysims.com/IPB
Plus lots of other stuff too, apparently! There’s a rideable dragon & a whole flock of different birds, & that’s only what I’ve found so far!
I will still consider retexturing some of these, it looks like, but thanks for letting me know where I can get the better original versions!
Sims 2 Farm…
I was just poking around on these interwebs & found a whole bunch of Sims 2 farm animals, which Meetme2theriver is showing off on her LJ here: http://meetme2theriver.livejournal.com/63989.html
Naturally, with this being me, I downloaded ALL THE THINGS FOREVER. But damn those be some fugly textures. Has anyone out there retextured these, or should I just do it?
Edit: I should mention that cows scare the living hell out of me & I will likely be some combination of drunk & terrified during that portion of the retexturing process. If I even do.
A Conversation About Poop.
Me: I don’t want to hear you pooping.
Him: Did you hear me pooping?
Me: Yes, because you vocalize all of the poops you do. You sit in there like “GRRRR I’M POOPING.” I poop silently, like a poop ninja.
That moment when…
…everyone you knew in high school is either married or engaged & you’re like “FUCK THAT NOISE, I’M GOING TO PLAY SIMS.”
Seriously, that’s about where I’m at right now. I don’t keep in contact with too many people from the dark ages, & then the news kind of trickles down to me through various places. & I’m like great… you’re all finding love & I’m sitting here alone in my pajamas, surrounded by cats, after a 10-hour workday drinking whiskey. Fucking around in TS2 Bodyshop while I wait to hear back about the next step of the closing process on the house I’m attempting to buy.
Then again, that doesn’t bother me at all. Even though I kind of think it should, which is why I mention it.
Guess we know where my priorities are, yeah?

Retro/50s/fallout style. “retro futurism” or “how the future looks from the past” sorta thing. Inspired by someone(?) on my dash a while ago.
That’s cute! Like, sort of how the Kims (Pets EP bin family with house) are? They’re going in my Strangetown too. I love retro-future design style epic lots, it’s super sexy.
Just out of curiosity…
I know what I’m doing with my Megahood Strangetown. You cannot convince me otherwise, Strangetown is ABSOLUTELY meant to be a gambling/party town built mostly in reclaimed government warehouses, with a small section still reserved for military purposes & research facilities. Somewhat of a close-to-home vacation destination with some kitschy “alien crash site” tourist stuff. Halfway between Vegas & Area 51, kind of.
What have you guys done with your Strangetowns?
This would be Pleasantview’s Squeaky Clean Laundromat. It’s between the Spaceburger & the Gas’n’Go.
Mostly for looks but there’s a tiny little clothing shop (pretend it’s a dry cleaner, I guess?) in the laundromat. So it does serve an actual purpose, somewhat.
I think someone (possibly one of the LS or PS Sims?) will own the laundromat & Lilith Pleasant can work here as a part-time job, or something.
Pleasantview’s newest addition - the Spaceburger.
Much like its real-life counterparts, the Spaceburger is a cheap fast-food restaurant with a playground attached to attract kids. Pleasantview (seems to me) has pretty strict standards about what buildings must look like & Spaceburger Co. probably had a hard time getting them to approve one of its signature tacky restaurants for the town, so I’ve added some large interior details that are clearly visible from the exterior to get around those imaginary-but-probable building restrictions.
The drivethru looks pretty, but isn’t functional at all (of course). The first drivethru window is attached to the proper kitchen, which is serviced via the restaurant podium in the main dining area. The second drivethru window is more for looks & is attached to a supply closet. Both drivethru’s will have a “cashier” at the window, who will, again, be there more for looks than for functionality at all.
Basically, everything but the drivethru is fully functional in this restaurant.
Your Downloads folders will learn to fear my temporary silences.
Uploading some slightly unremarkable YAF/AF swimwear as a vehicle for some much-needed mesh edits. Crappy Bodyshop preview because I can’t be arsed to boot my game right now.
Wet T-Shirt Contest - is the bikini with the slightly transparent “wet” tanktop over it. Comes in all 10 of the color combinations shown in the swatch.
Sex On The Beach - is just the bikini without the tank top, comes in the same 10 colors of just the bikini. Has an adorably meta tribal-inspired plumbbob design on the left hip.
These use textures from CF BG underpants, AF BG bikini (seriously, look at the bikini top, you know which one that is), & TF TSS pajamas (tank top) with Aelia’s color actions.
With Edits (included in file) - Warlokk’s Classic Pinup, Faerie, Fashion Model, Rio, Renaissance, & Voluptuous. Poppeboy’s Fitchick. The new meshes are meant to REPLACE any nude/undies/swim meshes you had for those shapes & are the EXACT SAME poly count as the EAxis meshes. This means your size option girls won’t have bigfoot feet, sculpted vaginas, epic buttcrack, or creepy permanipples anymore, & the filesizes are accordingly much smaller. (YAY!)
Special thanks to Annorax for sizing them for me.
Without Edits (not included) - EAxis size with no mesh needed, melodie9’s Fat size & Zenman’s Big Adult size (both of which are available on MTS2, which is down right now).
Everything is located in clearly marked folders & the mesh names are super descriptive, so just delete the sizes you don’t want.
Taking a look inside the Simpsons’ house :P
Just got the craving to make this in sims!
This would work so well as a Sims house it’s not even funny.
It’s storming like a bitch out. Hail & everything. Instead of finishing the next community lot tonight, I think I’mma shut the expensive computer off & go watch some TV or something. Enjoy what I’ve already posted!
Here’s the next addition to Pleasantview… the Gas’n’Go. Because every town needs at least one crappy gas station/convenience store combo.
They even have gas station perfume & cheap flipflops on the shelves.
I am 100% certain that Brandi Broke is going to work here.
& finished. Counselor’s office, hallways, & exterior shot. The area to the right of the exterior shot, that is going to be a bigger parking area on another lot that “attaches” the school to a small sports arena.
