Back from Sardinia


I am now back from Sardinia. You never knew I went? Well, now you do :). I arrived home on Sunday night. I've had a terrible cold though so please excuse me for posting so late!


I was met with a lovely surprise when I returned: I won Little Miss Cutie hosted by Hoxha! It was extremely close; only half a point between 1st and 2nd!

Hoxha generously gifted me two items from my Store wish list; Pumped Up Pom Pom Hat and Over the Shoulder Braid. I can't wait to use them!

She also made me a gorgeous signature:

Thank you Hoxha!

Sims 3 Seasons: Aliens

(Poll at the bottom - it would make me so happy if you voted in it :3)

A couple of days ago, The Sims 3 posted a fairly in-depth look at aliens in The Sims 3 Seasons on their blog! I just read it now and my excitement for Seasons has grown considerably!

I was expecting just your average green guy that abducts people, dissects their brain and that would be it. But they can do much more - you can even play as an alien. How cool is that?! You can terrorise the town with your weird UFO fire laser beams and watch sims run around like ants under a magnifying glass on a sunny day.

Told you so.

Gangnam Style: SMS Tone - Link fixed!

"Gangnam Style": a Korean neologism mainly associated with upscale fashion and lavish lifestyle associated with trendsetters in Seoul’s Gangnam district (강남), which is considered the most affluent part of the metropolitan area. In colloquial usage, it is comparable to the English slang terms “swag” or “yolo”. 

- According to Urban Dictionary


(Scroll down to big, blue highlighted text for SMS tone!!)

If you haven't yet heard of the craze that has taken over the world, "Gangnam Style" by PSY, I am shocked. I don't think there is anyway you couldn't know about it!

  • It comes up as the first suggestion on Google after typing only "gan", before some guy called "Gandhi" - whoever that is...*
  • It holds the Guinness World Record for "most liked" video in Youtube history with likes (at time of writing).
  • The official video has over 300,000,000 views on Youtube after only 12 weeks since it was uploaded.

Why am I talking about Gangnam Style on a sims blog?

I'll tell you why.

Little Miss Cutie: Assignment 3

After Sensation closing, I decided to get back into some modelling competitions because I miss them!

I'm only in one at the moment: "Little Miss Cutie" (cycle 1) hosted by Hoxha! You can find her blog here. I recommend it, she just uploaded her beautiful Asian model Mae Ling.


I just handed in my third assignment which was a toy advertisement:

Finally: I updated my Archives

So I don't know if you have noticed or not, but I just updated my "Archives" page! Yes - I actually updated them.

I tried before but had real difficulty working out how to show the pictures - I settled on slideshows created with Photosnack. I love that site now :D!

I still need to create a couple more slideshows but I'm getting there :).

What d'ya think?

Sims 3 Crashing? DEP Fix for Windows

Recently I ordered Sims 3 Showtime and Supernatural. When they arrived I installed them and started my game. Then, my game crashed. I hadn't got past the title screen!

Luckily, I knew what the problem was. I had forgotten to add Showtime and Supernatural's .exe files to my DEP (Data Execution Prevention). So, I added them to my DEP and rebooted my computer. It worked! Yay!

If this is happening to you, with any expansion or even the base game then DEP may be your solution. A helpful tutorial for Windows 7 users can be found here by games4theworld. I have Windows Vista, and I will show you how to fix this crashing problem with DEP (if that is the cause) with pictures and text - isn't this exciting!

On to the tutorial...


Have you ever started up your beloved Sims 3 game to have it crash right in front of your very eyes? Sometimes it crashes on the title screen, other times while you're playing the game (which is extremely annoying!).

Do you see this pop up message?

"Sims 3 has stopped working" error message

Me thinks it's time to fix your DEP settings!

You can visit it by clicking on the link above, or by clicking/vising the URL:

I hope you'll take a look around. Only two chapters are uploaded so far; I hope to upload the rest (so far) tonight :)!

Evil Fish Face - in Blender


Nutty's in the nest. (I'm so funny.)

A few days ago I decided to play around with a new version of Blender I downloaded and some new rig files :D.

In English: I decided to play around with pose-making :).

Hey guys :D!
Wow it's been over a month since I last posted!? That is what exams do to you...

they destroy your social life.

They let you do nothing else than study.

They make the highlight of your day eating.
Saying that though, eating is one of the highlights of my day anyway but yeah... x]

"Read More"

I've been trying to create expandable posts so the whole post isn't on this page. That means that you have to click on the post's title to see the whole post (including pictures!). For some reason though there is always a link to the website where I got the code from at the end which is REALLY annoying. I'm trying to fix it but I might just have to leave it be haha!! 

Just thought I would let you know ^__^. 

Fear Me and Down With Drab!

Last night I handed in my entry for assignment 2 of "Fear Me", hosted by Monks. Before I started I had no idea what to do but then I knew I wanted to incorporate magic into it ^__^!

Recently I tried to combine all my package files into one to make my game run faster, which worked, but all my custom content skins disappeared O_O. So as I'm sure you can imagine I was FREAKING OUT. I haven't been able to track down the skin I used to use for Mariko, which was white, so I have been using one as pale as I can. It looks ok but I wish i could find her natural skintone again :(.

Anyway, here is my entry for assignment 2 - "The Night Walkers" :

Mariko may have had no physical weapons, but she did have her magic. She ran straight towards the Nightwalkers who were towering above a now unconscious and helpless looking teenager. Just as she reached the girl's body she was pulled up into the sky, hovering above the ground. All of a sudden a large glow of white sparks and lights radiated from Mariko's alien body. The light lit up all the forest objects around her as she glowed brighter than she had ever glowed. Even the pummeling rain could not dampen a light as luminous as this. As Mariko had expected, the Nightwalkers cowered from the bright light - they were the 'night' walkers after all, who only hunt at night, in the dark. The Nightwalkers were quickly frightened off by this magnificent firework just metres before them, scuttling back into the dark depths of the winding forest. Mariko hastily knelt down by the girl's side, no longer glowing, and heard a muffled but grateful; "Thank you...".

Final of Crazy and Colourful Modeling (and stuff)

Sooooooooooooooo! Hello everyone!

Just now I'm going to post the before and after version of my entry for the FINAL of Crazy and Colourful Modeling. Yes, the final, that means after the results I will have to move all the pictures to archives - awwwwwww. I haven't even set up archives yet, or quite a few other pages *cough* lazy *cough* but I will! One day... ANYWAY... click the title to see my entry :D!

and afterrrrr:
Sandy the crazy and colourful faery was feeling a little bored one evening, and so she decided to sit upon the Great Rainbow since it was looking just beautiful tonight. Her feet sparkled as she easily skipped up the colourful bridge. As she sat down, swinging her legs over the edge, she was suddenly startled by loud banging noises! She instantly looked up and saw ginormous fireworks in every shape, size and colour bursting from the darkness of the clear skies! The fireworks were even brighter than her magical sparkles which surrounded her in a white glow. As she tried to regain her balance, she slipped and began to slide down the rainbow rapidly! She tried to slow down with her hand but it was no use; her legs and other arm were flailing while her necklace attempted to fly off her neck! When she finally reached the end of the rainbow she noticed a large sign stuck onto the pot of gold, it said:


So that was why the Rainbow was deserted...
