The Cabin Studio is done! I can’t believe how much grief this simple lot has caused me. The stairs and some smaller items kept disappearing when I rotated the lot. Moo on, moo off, build mode, world view, nothing helped. I wanted the Cabin to be quirky, but not that quirky! I think it’s fixed now. Plus, I forgot how hard it is to build with cc in mind. I think that’s why I felt overwhelmed each time I wanted to build something in TS3 (I had almost 8 gb of cc, 99% of it in sims3packs, because, well, Mac). Bulding with no cc gives you some healthy constraints, and with cc, well, in theory sky is the limit. In practice you spend long hours looking for a certain rustic chandelier you’re sure you saw SOMEWHERE (nope), and you worry too much about the „look”, or „style” or whatever. Well, I do. But I try to limit the amount of cc I put into my game now (I have no way to merge it later), so in the end I just left what I deemed essential (or I was already using in my game) so I could finish it and start to actually play!
As the NWSL season slowly winds down and we head into the playoffs…shoutout to non-national team players who don’t make as much as they deserve and still play. The ones who still work hard and sell tickets while NT players have their duties - whether it’s the WC, Olympics and the qualifying stages. FYI they’re just as important - if not more important to selling the league to the general public. They sacrifice a lot push women’s football in the United States. Especially financially. They don’t bring home as much and many could make more using the degree they earned while in college. Or they’re forced to retire in their twenties to make ends meet. Just listen to Ella Masar’s 2 Drunk Fans interview to understand what I’m saying.
I see a lot of people on social media who only praise and glorify NT players. That’s totally fine! But just remember who sacrifices the most so that young girls in 2015 might have something to play for if they’re good enough to go pro one day. If the NWSL succeeds 10-15 years from now and you ask me who helped shape it I’ll name players like Ella Masar first.
