How exactly do you make all your pictures look so full of light and colourful? It looks amazing!

VOLESTE said: Ooh, nice you got your friend into the Sims! And in the Sims 3, CC isn’t that much of a necessity, except for defaults and mods. Vanilla is still a lot of fun. :3

Yes, I have officially converted my best friend into a Sims fan. Hehe. :P

TS3 vanilla is great fun, I agree! My own game has little CC, mainly default skin and eyes and a mod or two. :)

s655 said: Baby steps… It’s wonderful watching someone who’s just started because they haven’t discovered CC and can still love the game vanilla!

I completely agree! It is wonderful to watch. The only mod I have installed for her is MasterController, and I don’t think she’s using it much - I really just put it there in case she wants to edit her Sims in CAS or something. I’ve decided not to bombard her with CC yet, that can come later. She’s having fun with no CC or store content, and she only wanted two expansion packs installed (Late Night and Supernatural).

She knows quite a bit about Sims, since I tend to ramble about it (and she’s been my friend almost as long as I have played the game). And she reads my story, so she knows some of the premades (she also follows several simblrs). She’s not so much into the premades as I am, but she’s told me she might play with them sometime. I can’t wait to see what she does with them. :)

I have created a monster…

…I installed The Sims 3 on my best friend’s (Emiko96) laptop today, and she’s so hooked to it, I literally had to drag her to the kitchen to cook dinner with me.

What have I done!? XD

Okay, I’m just as bad when it comes to Sims. Lol. :P

Now I should make her take pictures of her game to share online. Maybe I should introduce her to the world of legacies and challenges…

That moment you get your best friend into the Sims fandom…

…and she doesn’t even play The Sims…yet.

Yes, Emiko96, I am talking about you! :P

For anyone interested in what PSD preset I use to edit my pictures:

I use ‘Soft-light’. I quite literally open my screenshot, along with the .psd file and then just drag the layers across. The only thing I then do is sharpen at 30% and crop out the testingcheats game code which appears in the corner of the screen if you have the cheat enabled (which is a permanent thing for me).

So, I got The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection…

…This is the second time in the span of two weeks where Origin gives me stuff I did not expect to receive.

So, thanks to all the peeps who sit in front of computers everyday to make all of this stuff happen. You guys are awesome!

Also, heads up for people waiting for an email to get the Ultimate Collection - the emails may be delayed, so check your Origin library instead. I got the game before the email.
