Your posts are absolutely amazing, Whats ur frankly.me username. I want more of you.

I don’t have one, but I’ll post it here if I get one.

In the meantime, just send me a message on Tumblr if there’s anything specific you want to know!

I know we all have our favorites that are either canon, non-canon or otherwise and I’m noticing unlike when I was part of anime fandoms - the shipping would usually end in the word ‘shipping’ but in the Sims fandom I notice that it’s a combination of the names.

Also, amongst the vast list of…

My ships outside of Sims are ultra boring & mostly in-canon.

As far as Sims I tend to go with an Uberhood mentality because I got really into premades during my first combined Nhood.  I tend to ship Sims who have high voltage & who have common interests or goals—whether true in-game canon, implied by character bios, or perceived in headcanon.

Some of my favorite Sim pairings have been:
Brandi Broke & Buzz Grunt (both single parents with 3 children)
Vidcund Curious & Cassandra Goth (both shy Scientists)
Angela Pleasant & Almeric Davis (both have conflicts with their twin siblings & they usually hit it off talking about animals & the environment)
Carlos Contender & Betty Goldstein (I have no idea why but they’re super cute together).

Wish I had a dedicated entertainment room

It wasn’t the reason I bought this house.  I have to admit though, it’s pretty nice to have the TV area separate from the living spaces… then again I’m one of those weirdos that hates electronic diversions during meals.

Hi ST. Wowwwww! *_* Can you pls come and make my apt pretty? D: I suckkkkkk!

Haha thank you!

It might be a little difficult to accomplish any real interior decorating from halfway across the country… but I have typically built my living spaces in Sims 2 to help me visualize where my furniture would go, so if you’d like to Sim up a layout of your living space & put it up for download I could take a shot at it.  :)

Sorry for the lack of Tumblr, real life is trying to kill me.

Have some pics of my TV room, which is quickly becoming a shrine to retro consoles & rhythm games.  I still haven’t redone the walls & floors like I wanted to, maybe next year…

Leave me in CAS for too long and things like this tend to happen.

OMG is this the entire cast of Venture Brothers?  AMAZING.

Back to Sims 2 stuff!

I’ve always thought the cardigan with little hearts on it would be adorable on any other outfit.  & then I decided that since I think it I should make it happen.

& then I found out why nobody seems to want to tackle that cardigan.  Who the fuck at EA texture mapped that thing?

Anyone who’s familiar (or wants to take a peek at) the original cardigan mesh is welcome to it, but it was a mess & I’ve been working on remapping it for DAYS.  Finally ended up just stacking the maps for the sleeves on top of each other (so you paint one sleeve but it shows up on both arms) to make enough room on the texture map to fit everything.

Ugh.

Justin Cleveland & Tara DeBateau from Belladonna Cove.

I took a few liberties with them… which was mostly just assuming that YA Justin would grow a beard like his uncle’s & that YA Tara suddenly likes hats.

Rick & Violet from Desiderata Valley.

I think they look decently enough like their TS2 counterparts.  Rick’s face was not easy.

Puck Summerdream & Melody Tinker because I didn’t have any other TS2 Teens to go with either of them.

At this point I don’t even know.  I’m going to end up with a TS4 Nhood full of poorly made TS2 Teens.

I’m just going to start sharing all of these (Origin name: LifaTavros) & ya’ll are all welcome to try to make them better or whatever.

I don’t know about these two.  They’re actually pretty tough to do in TS4; I just did the best interpretation I could.

I think what’s getting me is that Romeo feels kind of right to me, if just because he keeps doing the Blue Steel face every time I zoom in on him… then I tried to differ Mercutio’s face from Romeo’s in the same way it is in TS2.

Any tips would be appreciated, I’d like to get them a little more accurate before I share.

Another round of TS2 basegame Teens made for TS4.

I think I got the Capp chin as well as I could.  Miranda’s pretty accurate as far as I can tell (aside from the green hair, there is no blonde/brown in TS4 so I just chose a random color) & Tybalt’s frown comes out fairly good.  Any suggestions before I upload them would be appreciated.

Guess who’s making TS2 Sims for TS4.  Better jump on the bandwagon, right?
If anyone has any tips on how to make them look more like the TS2 versions, let me know.

Aaahhh! I love them! :D
I think that your version of Johnny and Ripp are pretty close to perfect (and that’s easily the best Ripp I’ve ever seen), and Ophelia is really good too, but she’s harder to capture because her features are more subtle. You’ve got her eyes and nose, but I think I’d change the shape of her eyebrows a little, perhaps?
You did such a great job with these! I can’t get over it.

Thank you so much!  I’m glad you liked them.  I tweaked Ophelia’s eyebrows just a little bit, as shown, & I uploaded all 3 of them as a household in case you wanted to play around with them (I’m sure you could improve them all).
I’m having trouble finding them just by searching my origin ID (LifaTavros) but they come up close to the top of the list searching Most Recent by family name “Smith” & refining the results to households with 2-3 Sims.
