Un Amour Éternel - A Prologue.

Welcome to Un Amour Éternel, Yuxi's TS2-crap-dump! I dig decorating, storytelling and making pretty pixel people, 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.


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

Bruno: Awesome make-up sets and other Bodyshop items.
blake_boy: Astonishing sets of contemporary furniture.
Buggybooz: Beautifully textured objects and room sets. She also has a blog with more goodness.
Criquette: The master of neighbourhood objects.
Crowridgestudio: Profile emptied out, but had some lovely recolours and vintage objects.
Guatla: Wonderful used-but-not-abused room and building sets, among other things.
Navetsea: I use his face kit and eyebrows on too many sims.
Pixelhate: Countless sets of marvellous building materials and brilliant overlays, perfect to build realistic, grubby lots.
Sherabhim: Beautiful fantasy-type clothing and other things.
V1ND1CARE: One of the best lot builders out there, mostly of ancient ruins and the like.

Creator blogs

Amaryll at Livejournal: Wonderful, high-quality clothing for both genders.
Azaya at Dreamwidth: Grungy recolours, lovely clothing and hairs.
Crayonsama at Tistory: Lovely realistic clutter, mostly ashtrays and gadgets.
CuriousB at Dreamwidth: Extremely useful and well-made grungy recolours and build mode objects.
Daislia at 163: Unique objects, recolours and build mode objects, always accompanied by stunning, inspiring pictures.
Ephemera at Blogbus: Sim God, basically. I simply can't play without his genetics, hair retextures and make-up.
Helena at 163: Utterly gorgeous Bodyshop CC, mostly historical/fantastical, bound to make jaws drop all the way to the floor.
Io at Dreamwidth/Livejournal: Absolutely drop-dead gorgeous clothing, hair retextures and more!
Javiera at Dreamwidth: Makes the most beautiful steampunk-themed clothing and objects.
Nabila at Livejournal: Wonderful high-quality object recolours and make-up.
Ran at 163: Beautiful accessories and other CC, all made with excellent taste.

For those who like snazzy banners to link back with:

Malrennan's Fall - Index

Malrennan's Fall is a storytelling project executed in comic format, using the Sims 2 and a buttload of Photoshop as a medium. I usually post per scene, some longer than others - the latest pages can be found at MF's Tumblr, where I upload them as I finish them.

- Introduction
- Introduction II

. Prologue 1-4
- Prologue 5&6
- I 1-9
- I 10-13
- I 14-17
- I 18-21
- I 22-28
- I 29-39
- I 40-44

If you need to contact me, you can do so via GoS, Tumblr, Livejournal or here - commenting on Dreamwidth doesn't require an account.

I no longer have or play the Sims. Most of my CC can be found on this OneDrive account. For a picture catalog of the CC, check my Repository on Tumblr.
Thank you for the fun and support over the many years - this game and community were part of my coming-of-age, and I hope it will stay strong for many years to come.
Much love,

I think your screenshots are the best I've ever seen. Do you do anything to make them look so wonderful? Or do you just have an amazing graphics card?

Hey Yuxi! I absolutely LOVE your creations, but I have a kind of WCIF for you. I recently downloaded your 'So Long Lonesome' pants(which I love BTW), but I have no good tops to go with them! Do you have any suggestions for tops that would go good with them? D:

A Little Curious...

(Anonymous) 2010-07-29 05:45 am (UTC)(link)
Hello Yuxi, I'm a long time fan of your site. I take pictures and i usualy build my sets and decorate my 'hoods by myself, but ive noticed that my 'hoods look like complete and total crap. .__. I need to know where you get your neighborhoods. They are beautiful and the way they are set up and stuff. I don't know how to describe it. xD Free? Open? Aha, not sure. Okay, enough of my useless rambling I have to know do you Decorate your neighborhoods your self or do you download them pre-decorated. And is there a way i can download the neighborhood (pre-decorated or otherwise). I f it hasnt been Pre-decorated and you decorated it yourself would you be so kind as to put it up? xD Im not begging just wondering -doesn't want to be an annoyance- . Thanks a lot :D

[personal profile] petitchat 2010-08-01 06:26 pm (UTC)(link)
Hey, just stopping by to say that E.S. Posthumus is fantastic! I clicked the link off of one of your entries and just fell in love. Moody orchestral music is one of my weak spots :P

I wanna snatch them up (Like the cafe you built and Aele's House) Aele's home was the best! I wanna live it in myself xD! I tried to re creat (didn't end well) so I just moved on :P. I also am in love with pendulum lofts (not sure if that's spelt right) but as soon as I moved my sims into the lot I crashed. x.x

Hey Yuxi! Firstly- I'm a big fan, duh.
I love all of your creations and your decorating skills amaze me every time I visit
your site)) I adore and envy you, in a good way))

Then I have some questions/requests/begging for you:

in some of your ''house tours'', more exactly this one, as there's a credit list, exactly those objects I amaze the most were made/recoloured by you.. Guess how many times I made Homers 'Doh'?... Sooo, my question is- will you be an angel and share
them? Or are they made 100% for personal use?.. :I

Then there's something else:

I guess for already 3 years I've been trying to register at Gamesir, but
no success! And when I saw your link to I was like '' oh holy muffins!'' The thang's asking for a ID card number and I can't make my way ''through'' it.. And I want the Ephemera stuff so badlyy... D': You know any way I could register? :')))

So, anyway, I thank you only for reading my blabber, and if there'll
be any response, I'll bring you sum doughnuts!))))

Medieval window

(Anonymous) 2011-02-11 09:03 am (UTC)(link)
just found your post of the "Forest path murals" (beautiful!).
May I ask for the medieval windows you used?
They seem to be a glassless recolour of Maxis' windows.
I want them, please!

Thank you, Yuxi! This was helpful.
I will download the lot and see what it reveals.
Too bad, so many Sims 2 sites have disappeared.


I'm sorry to bother you with this...

(Anonymous) 2011-04-01 11:24 pm (UTC)(link)
I've been lurking on your dreamwidth for a long time, and your creations are amazing! Thank you for sharing! Also, I have a question, which I feel bad about asking since we've never spoken before. I was looking at your credits list and came across Animefemme on BPS. Her recolors are fantastic! But sadly it seems that all of her files have been deleted on box. Do you, by chance, know if they will ever be back up? Thanks and I'm sorry to bother you with something like this!

I Miss Your Work

(Anonymous) 2011-04-22 02:00 am (UTC)(link)
Yup, DJ again. My computer has pretty much died. I got a new one but i have no clue where my sims crap is. im trying to come back to the sims community. how i miss it and your work. Keep it up!

(Anonymous) 2011-06-17 07:18 am (UTC)(link)
Hi Yuxi!

I've been fangirling you for a long time and have wrote many
compliments and wcif's and requests etc. and now I've got to
ask you again- somewhere you said that you recoloured Adele's Liam windows
darker,made a black recolour. Is there any chance you'd share it with us?? :(( I've been searching *overall* for black Liam set as the darkest colour that came from Adele is some dark, dirty grey...

Also, in a older post where you showed the house you built for Nymphy's
contest, there are soo many gorgeous recolours of yours! E.g I reaally want a black Reflect Floor-recolour, I use now the thing to place over water to change it's colour to make the floor darker.. -___-

I might sound a bit rude by asking you to share those things, I'm sorry then, and of course you don't have to do so if you don't want x)))
Again, I'm a huge fan and I'll be hoping for a respond and maybe even
some of my wishes will come true.. c(:
