ETA: I still had some ideas for these and the number 7 annoys me, so I added two more retextures: A black one and a stone coin pond with cherry blossoms. Swatch and download have been updated.

Quickie for Maron: Retextures of Amovitam's TS3>TS2 pond! There are 7 9 in total, most a bit weathered and outdoor...ish. You can mix the water texture (but not the leaves and such, they're part of the other subset) for good times. I hope you like them!

All the files are compressed and the mesh and previews are included.

And since I haven't posted a nice little picspam here in forever, here's a room I posted on Tumblr a while back.

Anahon's living room.

I'm cleaning up my Dreamwidth a bit to remove broken links, add tags, a more gratuitous use of cuts, delete things I no longer like (some sims and hairs, mostly) and add little mesh information blurbs in all the clothing posts.

I also updated this mesh, so please redownload if you had it. There were some minor animation issues and I added morphs, which it was missing before. I also made an optional version of it with Maxis hands instead of Tenshii's hands, because I noticed a significant interest in those.

ETA: Fixed two more meshes to add morphs and fix some huge animation issues. I also added smoother hands and an optional Maxis hands mesh for them. Please update them if you have them - the difference is significant.

And because this post looks so text-y and empty now, have some picspam! This was a set I'd made back in 2009, but it always seemed to lack something. I just decided to move things around drastically and fiddle with the lighting.

My biggest real-life pet peeve right now is white blouses and shirts made of cheap fabric, so you can see through them. Even here it's tropical outside and I really don't want to wear more layers of clothing than I need to, just because they thought the wet-t-shirt-contest-look should be default dkfjdd.

Anyway, I just wanted to dump these here too.

Okay, this is for last post's anon. :D Here are some vanilla shots from Malrennan's Fall to compare with the edited ones.

I'm amongst many who edit the shit out of their pictures. Not the previews for CC though (I know that tends to sour people's muffins), mostly just the picspam type. Compared with newer games TS2's graphics kind of suck, no matter how uber your card is, but with quality CC and lighting mods alone you can get quite far. So I personally only use Photoshop as a finishing touch kind of thing.

I'm still learning, and this isn't very spectacular compared to what some others can do (saying this because I bumped into someone's utterly beautiful house show-off thread when I was about to post this - confidence drainer, haha), but here we go.

Anyone here on Tumblr? Is it possible to follow others/reblog pictures with a sub-blog instead of the name you signed up with? I'm trying to go with the sneaky anonymous thing, but it doesn't help if my original super-obvious username is plastered everywhere, eh. As if the blog's name isn't a dead giveaway already.

Anyway. I used to hate building my own lots, mostly because my ideas didn't go much further than slapping two squares together. I surpassed myself by making something consisting of four squares, semi-creatively stacked on top of each other. Oh yeah. 8D It made for some pretty enough pictures, so here are some of those.
This was intended as a modern house for a rich bachelor who doesn't like frilly decorations, but I got bored halfway through due to the lack of needlessly ~ornate~ stuff, and didn't even get to the bedrooms. At least I had an excuse to finally use those light panels by Xanathon I'd been hoarding for ages.

I finally slapped Gunmod's Shader file in my game and ended up gawking at the water for at least 15 minutes.





Cut for six more. )



. Sim blahblah.


As for something entirely different, I'm not the only one who makes characters into sims and just keeps tweaking them endlessly, am I? I came across some old pictures of the ~ominous~ dude from the last post and ended up comparing them. Perhaps I'm the only one who finds this amusing, but hey.
His name is Sanzusair and he likes talking in metaphors that may or may not make any sort of sense.

2008: Photoshopped to hell and looking fancier than the next two pictures combined.


2009: For some reason I spammed this picture around everywhere at this point.


Now: Doesn't look like himself without the white fairy locks.
