PostMy mini blog here - thank you Cinda

I have a little Sims 2 forum totally private and for various reasons I won't make it public at all, but I occasionally archive some of my work there and interesting Sims 2 resources links.

Here I'll give an overview of my creations : some objects recolours, clothes and other Bodyshop  retextures, a few Sims of mine, some of my residential lots.

I'm not a big fan of posting pics of my work all the time and everywhere, and even not so keen on ingame photos. So the pics of my Sims, most of time will be from Bodyshop. I don't play the game much. I'm in a looong process of reorganising my downloads, check what I keep or will bin for good. I keep some very old creators' clothes only to "revamp" and put on meshes with better shoes. For sorting objects and build items, it's a whole different story ! it gives me headaches with the sets having Master and slave meshes, or repositoried with sometimes ugly textures to keep - but required.

If I have a few tips, not really full tutorials, I'll post them here too.

If a few among you feel like giving me feedback on "works in progress" (projects I have for Bodyshop or furniture themes, but still not finished or hard to finish), thanks for commenting, also with a possible link (a working one, please) to meshes which you think I could use. Then specify if the mesh is Master from furniture sets (because without a Master mesh objects slaved to it won't show up).

Also... I don't easily share my creations. For clothes, many of them are "revamps" (clothes from other creators put on better meshes or improved with lace, details, etc.). If I'm inspired for a specific theme, I do my own clothes recolours, especially gothic, hippie, bohemian, gipsy, sometimes "haute couture". I have tons of fashion photos, because yes I do use "photoskinning" for clothes retextures and not flat patterns to use as seamless, etc. (I like realistic looks) Occasionally I also "fix" clothes  when in Bodyshop they don't show up for me (because the uploader added the wrong mesh). I do sometimes the same for a few jewels - but it's fixing, not creating.

Haha, more about fixing : I fixed tons of accessory meshes flashing blue, most from peggy and rosesims. Also now fixing annoying shadows on objects and thank you to Murano (aka Teko, reflexsims) for an awesome easy tip on how to get rid of those shadows under a bed, a wall hanging, etc. !

Sharing objects recolours and walls isn't a problem for me. Also don't forget that I don't create meshes at all.

Thank for your attention.

You're welcome. Smile This week-end I'll see for photos of my creations to resize.

I'm finishing the sorting of female clothes. From what I think I'll "revamp" I will check again because definitely I won't keep very very old clothes anymore in my future downloads folder. So I refine now the sorting with the goal to bin what I don't keep anymore and to just extract interesting textures).

But I got immense treasures from closed sites which I will keep (from one German site called fromheaventohell among others, clothes on Chriko meshes, and also a fireplace corner from wildalpiin, also closed now, which I recoloured some years ago). I keep also all I got from BPS, because BPS when it was reflexsims forum was my first Sims 2 community "online home" and I miss Jonesi so much and some of the old reflexsims forum staff (Greeksgal, especially)...
