i made a thing is it a pretty thing

I’ve gotten interested in modding The Sims 4. Originally, it was just a desire to re-tune some of the things in the game that I found annoying. I think I’m starting to see some of the larger possibilities, though.

Something I’m working on right now is implementing something akin to the celebrity system from The Sims 3, and I think I’ve made pretty good progress. 

The picture above shows one of the effects of becoming even a D-List celebrity–other Sims will start snapping photos of you with their smartphones.

(I’ve tweaked things a bit since I took this screenshot, so they actually have to be facing you, and some other requirements.)

I mean, I’ll probably never have it perfect, because I made a rule for myself that I wouldn’t touch any of the game’s original tuning files. I handle everything through the injection of a single trait that gets applied across the board, and the rest of the magic happens largely through proximity buffs and broadcasters, as well as three new statistical commodities that get attached through the trait.

It has been fun. I guess I’d probably like to make it available through modthesims someday if anybody turns out to be interested. I don’t know if anybody will be. Maybe it’s just a me thing.

Morty!! I have an interview lined up as a part-time Library Assistant this Friday! \oAo/ What sort of advice would you give a hopeful librarian?

It’s honestly not too hard! Most of the work is rote memory–if you don’t know the dewey decimal system, you will learn. Trust me on this one. Technology has made much of the job a snap–if you’re like me, though, you’ll end up working not as help with books so much as pre-IT. If your library has a heavy emphasis on the computer side of things, expect a lot of helping your patrons with that.

Other than that, it’s like any other customer service job! Be friendly, relaxed, and willing to help. The best thing about libraries is that librarians are, naturally, pretty dorky people–the staff I worked with was made up of a lot of cosplayers and con-goers. Hopefully the staff you’ll be working with will also be as welcoming as the staff I got!

I love your posts about s4 and the ARG. I'm not on tumblr/twitter/??? all the time though, and often when I check in I feel like one or more really important things have happened and I have no idea what is going on (e.g., Wtf was that Sherlock dance video thing? Why weren't they all wearing curly black wigs? Who made it?) Do you know if someone is logging this stuff somewhere? A time stamped log of all this would be pretty much the best thing since... ever, for now and for posterity.

The best I can tell you is going to the “Sherlock Arg” tag.  Everything happens so quickly and overlapping it’s hard to keep track of.

If anyone has a chronological list, please reach out!

As for that video, it was shown at some hoitey toitey real life British thing and is clearly a purposeful bastardization in its craziness

I actually do think he was in NYC. That tweet definitely made it seem like he was enjoying the nice weather in New York and then he tweeted the next night about being bummed about missing Ariana Grande at the Garden (in NYC), which wouldn't really make sense if he was in LA, since Ariana will do a show in LA later in her tour. I'm pretty sure he was just in NYC for a couple days for work and probably flew back yesterday (saturday), which isn't really a strange thing for him to do.

you might be right - I give up!

But now the problem with him possibly being in NY for like a 24-48 hour whirlwind is that it does seem likely it’s for work and then I start wondering again…and I remember Perez’s tweet…and Versace will film I think from March for a few months followed by Katrina in June…So what does he have happening in NYC?

Maybe nothing. We just don’t know. 

i decided to participate in at least one day of the Victuuri Week

Y'know, normally I make portraits based on photos, so this drawing was like a long and bumpy ride through hell, but in the end I gotta admit…… I enjoyed it. Very much.
