Phone Book FEATURED!

My Phone Book was chosen as a Featured download! So excited! Yay!

From the download text:
Having the ability to add sims to your relationship panel is a good thing because that will allow you to call them. You can add extended family members or potential love interests that way without having to hope that they will walk by or you chance meet them downtown at the club. Maybe little junior has never actually met grandma in person, but this way they can have a relationship by phone at least. Or Don can look up the numbers to all the local hotties in town and set up some dates for the weekend. Whatever

Snap! She's Back!

Spring quarter just ended for my college and I'm off for the summer for now. I'm supposed to be started a new co-op job assignment on Monday, but with the economy the way it is, and the fact that it's summer quarter and that's when every other school ever has let loose their students to find employment, I'm currently out on my tush for now. It's ok, while I wanted to get a job, I'm determined to make the most of this summer. And, they still have until July 4th to get me placed yet, so there is still hope for that. In the meantime, I've been busily trying to get caught up on my sims stuff. I have a ton of half finished projects that I'm just trying to wrap up and get out to you, which is why suddenly I've got three uploads within a week of each other. They've all been on backlog, even I can't work that fast! In addition to that, I need to get an upload for June Fitness and mid July is my creator anniversary, and you know I always do something nice for that. For June Fitness, I'm thinking some new weight machines or something like Energy bars. For my creator anniversary I'm either going to finish out my Mid-Century set or I'll upload my newer St. Bestine's Cathedral if I haven't decided to upload that later this week.

I find having a Project list in my Journal is helpful for me to go back to look at:

JobLevels in Portuguese

Today is my bday! Yay! I am now 24. It's getting to that age where its hard to tell people I play the sims, but I'm not gonna stop. Earlier this week I went home and had a small family party with just my dad (sibs and mom were out of town). I got to pick my favorite cake, one of those frozen Pepperidge Farm Coconut cakes. Dad gave me a sweet 1TB external hard drive, Mom gave me a puzzle with art from one of my favorite artists, and my sisters joined together to get me Sims Medieval. I tried playing it already, but I think lappy needs more RAM before it can run it well. Oh well, it was on my purchase list anyways. The game is very different from TS2 (still think 3 can suck it) so I don't know how much I'll actually enjoy it when I can run it well. I haven't given up on my Medieval Veronaville, I think that's still more fun for me, but I'll build it better from what I learn in this new game. Anyways, Happy Birthday to me!

What's up with Phae lately?

So, yeah, my uploads have this downward trend line, my first year I had 100 uploads, second year had 18, third year had 9, and I've only gotten 1 up the past six months since. What happened?!?

Well, a couple things. The first year I was here I was only part time at college, I had WAY more freetime to make stuff, and back then I was still learning and making really simple things. Once I figured out how to default replace stuff it didn't take long for me to replace almost all the outfits that were seriously driving me crazy. My second year I started working on all the cool larger project I had been dreaming about when I was first learning. Larger projects take time. Between all the meshing and texturing (relatively simple process) there is all the coding to do, that takes forever. In addition, I've gotten back to full time at school. That has me so busy I rarely have time to do any sims work in the fall or spring. The summer and winter months I'm away on co-op. Can't do sims stuff at work, but it does leave my evenings open and that's where I've been squeaking stuff in.

Whether or not I have time to work on my projects or not, I am active on MTS pretty much everyday. I still have moderation duties and I answer questions on my boards. I'm not gone, just darn busy.

As I'm back on winter quarter doing a co-op, I've had time to pick my projects back up. I'm almost done with a really great little hacked object, a phone book. Echo has been helping me with it by the boatloads. Nothing cool I've ever done hasn't been at least partly (generally a whole lot) thanks to her.

I've got some more projects in the works right now, but I'm not going to get ahead of myself just yet. I can promise the phone book will make it out before April (when I go back to school) but anything else right now is still up in the air pending how uncooperative things will be. Current projects include window pane recolors and smaller driveways/garages. Here's hoping they turn out as well. The stackable chairs might be making a come-back and there might be something to do with all the strays in the neighborhood, that one I need to think more on.

Anyways, I miss you all! Not having uploads very often means I rarely hear from all of you and I miss it. Drop me a line! And, if anyone has a joint project idea in mind, I'd be interested.
