Un Amour Éternel - A Prologue.

Welcome to Un Amour Éternel, Yuxi's TS2-crap-dump! I dig decorating, storytelling, making pretty pixel people and posting random lounge music, amongst other things. Older content (like old hair retextures/conversions) can be found on my Livejournal, and a masterlist of most of my stuff can be found here.


Policy



In case you want to know how I roll:
You're free to include my stuff with lots and sims, no need to ask.
Don't reupload my stuff as-is - there's no need, just link to it here.
For meshes, I'd prefer you linked back to their original post instead of including them, as I am prone to screwing up and will update as necessary. If you feel you must include it anyway, please also link back for that reason.
Feel free to hack/slash/convert/recolour/edit my things, but please do mention where you got your parts from. Defaulting is fine too, but please link back to the original post.
I only use textures or meshes from other people if they allow such mash-ups - follow their terms of usage if you wish to reuse their work and credit them properly too.



This is a list of the lovely creators and sites I get pretties and/or inspiration from. For closed sites, I added back-ups of their content where I could.

Sites and forums


Adele (mirror site): Beautiful objects and clothing.
Black Pearl Sims (forum) : I'm not an active member here, but I love many object recolours and meshes that can be found here. My favourite creators in particular are Animefemme, Cassandre, Leehee, MysticRain and Nemestnaya.
Chi Sims: All sorts of fancy objects, accessories and what-have-you with a classical Chinese twist.
Club Crimsyn (mirror site): Darker themed high-quality clothing, accessories, objects, walls&floors and so much more by aikea-guinea and Gelydh.
Cool Sims: Pretty, quality hairs for both genders by Anto.
Cradle of Darkness: Many beautiful and darker downloads by some excellent Russian creators.
E-studio See creator blogs vvv: E-Studio had high-quality skins, make-up and hair edits by one of my favourite creators ever. Ephemera is also a member of MTS and of Gamesir.
Elegant Decay: Used-but-not-quite-abused objects and other things by Nixy - I think the site's title pretty much says it all.
Enayla's Escapades: A subforum at Insimenator where Enayla posted her phenomenal eyes, skins and clothing inspired by the world of the fantastic.
Fashion Twist: Realistic, high-quality and elegant clothing by Confide and Tantra.
Gamesir: A plethora of talented Chinese CC creators post their creations here. (You do need an account view the board and GSBs (forum money) to download, however.)
Garden of Shadows (forum): Alternative-themed forum with many, many pretties. Basically my home forum, and I get at least 50% of my CC either from or via GoS.
Imaginary (at Sims2Graveyard): Problematique's and Noirmuse's old site, now hosted at the Graveyard. A plethora of shinies can be found here.
The Medieval Smithy and Plumb Bob Keep: Quality build mode items, object recolours and everything else you'll ever need to build a historical-themed 'hood.
My-mashup: Beautiful wallpapers, floors and lots by Isi. The site is gone but there are links to the items on the main page.
Pixel Dolly (at Sims2Graveyard): Alternative, high quality Bodyshop items and object recolours.
Sims in Paris (mirror site): Beautiful furniture with a chic touch.
Simply Styling: High quality clutter objects, furniture and other things that give a house that 'lived-in'-feeling.
Sims Projects: Grungy walls, floors and posters from Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines, along with other useful object retextures by Dektora.

Favourite MTS creators

Thanks so much! It's a great help. :'D And I do browse around GoS a lot(I have an account), but it's hard to stuff that I like. I mean, it has really great stuff, but I'm not so much into dressing my male sims in neons. xD But these are great too! Maybe you should make some tops yourself to go with them. I abuse your creations too much. xDD

(Anonymous) 2010-07-24 22:59 (UTC)(link)
Lol. Thanks I guess. xD I think it's just hard to find male clothes in general. Even MTS has very little. But the tops you recommended were great. I ended up downloading all the sets. :'D Also, if you want to see my fail Sims(well, they're fail to me), check out my LJ: amuletkitten.livejournal.com. I highly doubt that you'll like them, but I'd love to hear any constructive criticism and advice from someone as great as you. ;D

I actually just make anime sims at the moment. That and OC's. I think I mights just need a better graphics card and some camera overlays, but my comp can't handle them. D: But thanks for the tutorials! Hopefully I can get some better pictures out of my game now. xD
