i had problems with the file size

Okay. So I was making this gif for THIS ASK HERE, and I just… had to make a separate post about it because…

OKAY. WATCH THE GIF. WHEN JOHN STEPS ON THE TITLE,

IT GETS BIGGER.

I thought it was a GIF error, since when I make gifs I have it cut every second frame to cut down on the file size.

BUT IT ACTUALLY DOES THIS ON BOTH DIFFERENT DIGITAL COPIES I OWN. I haven’t checked my BluRay, so I can’t confirm that. The GIF starts at Timestamp 8:25 for anyone who wants to check.

As a designer who has dabbled in video editing this is an easy error to make, but surely a production as huge as this had a tonne of eyes checking it before it was sent out, and as far as I am aware, this was done months before it actually aired.

I think this was a deliberate thing… almost like “HEY THIS WHOLE THING IS SHERLOCK THINKING MARY IS AN ABOMINABLE BRIDE, LOOK EVEN JOHN THINKS IT”.

LIKE… the timing is TOO perfect for it to be a mistake. It literally enlarges JUST AS JOHN STEPS ON IT.

Someone please tell me I’m not crazy.

recently i sweeped my mods folder (consisting of about 40-50 items) and yesterday i got a bunch of new ccs (like about 10-20 items) and my game wouldn't even get to the menu before crashing. Now I have 10 items and it actually works, but im scared that this is the limit it can go. Why is it doing this? A few months ago when I cleaned out my mods folder, I had about 200 items and it worked perfectly. Please tell me any tips or what size the file of any cc should be so I can watch it.

:’-( hmm….maybe try to repair ur game w/ origin??? or dragging ur sims folder out so u can generate a new one???? and then put all ur mods back?? i have never had this problem friend!!!! wish i could help but idk ;-; xoxo

My dad has been ranting and cursing all night about the internet being incredibly slow and not working most of the time, but before he had a chance to reset the modem I assured him that I read online that everyone using our provider was suffering from this…

Little does he know that the problem is actually ME trying to upload a 2GB avi file to YouTube for the Destiel documentary (something that is way too much for our shitty internet, took 6 hours) because I am too much of an idiot to do something about the size of any file without fucking it up.

It’s cool, I’ll just take this to the grave

Converted the TS3 University Life bar. Not a complete success though because I couldn’t get rid of the white trays(?). This is the exact same alpha issue as the one I had before when converting the ice cream cart. The problem is that I totally forgot how I managed to make the wheel transparent *laugh and cry*

Oh well, I will just insist the white squares are cake cardboard base. I placed cute doilies on them at least. Hmm, actually I just thought the tray wouldn’t be that ugly if the size is a bit reduced.

… And I guess I won’t be able to make more recolors of this bar at least for a while. I didn’t know that the inside of bars and counters are that complicated (I mean DDS files). You guys will laugh at me when you see how messy my PDS file is lol. Urgh I miss CASt so much.

P.S. Made the ‘coffee’ part of the sign too. I didn’t realized I only made ‘Starbucks’.
