pixelswirl said: Most people use Fraps to take TS2 screenshots, the in game camera is mehhhh, and Gunmod’s camera mod is good for camera angles. Changing the color is the design tool, it’s a little swatch looking thinger.
Yes, your totally right about the in game camera! Fraps I’m not familiar with but I’ll check it out. I grabbed Gunmods mod already but I also found one by PacMani, so I might test them both out and see how I go. Thanks! Yes I found the design tool but I think I’m thinking of create-a-style, lol! And TS2 does not have that, right?
mmmcheezy said: I love what you did with Dina and Nina’s condo! One thing I learned is that screencaps are amazing for taking better quality pictures, although the in-game quality here looks fine to me as well. :) Is that the issue you’re having?
Thanks Cheezy! I’ll admit I did sharpen this shot slightly in PS. :o I think just having more control of the camera, I’m so used to TS3 camera/mods that I forgot what it’s like to use the camera without them.
So I just installed TS2 and I’m internally squeeing right now. Actually I was just laughing while it was loading and omg, it was GREAT! lol The loading screen, the music, everything was giving me major feels and nostalgia!
The base game installed okay and I played for thirty minutes and saved, and everything seems okay. Yay! Going to now try to install a few EP’s and see what happens. It was super quick to load and super smooth to play, yikes, even quicker and smoother than TS3. Must be my new-ish laptop cus TS2/3 kinda sucked on my old one.
Above screen shot is of the Calentie’s lot which I quickly reno’d the outside of. That’s Mortimer waiting to be greeted by Dina, or is Nina? Anyways, one of them. lol Think I have to adjust the screenshot size? Cus that just doesn’t look right to me. Also the game is saving them as a BMP file? I also tried to change the colour of an object but couldn’t figure it out. LOL And the camera controls, you know to get better angles. Anyways I feel like I’m playing it for the first time again and it’s certainly going to take a bit of getting used to but I honestly didn’t think I’d be this excited about it. XD
Happy Birthday Violet!
Hair is by Plumblobs and the moment I saw it I knew it was the perfect hair for Violet as a teen. :)
I love it when the whole family is present at birthdays, even the animals. :)
Make a wish Violet!
Pauline’s visit to the Day Spa ended before it even began because Violet returned home from school and suddenly it was her birthday. I don’t think Pauline even got a taste of the Soothing Salvation, $7,500, package she paid for. We won’t tell Hank that she didn’t get a refund either.
To cheer Pauline up and because she wasn’t in the mood for writing anymore I sent her to the Day Spa for some pampering. She chose to take the green eco-hybrid-super-fast sports car they own but never drive. ;)
Pauline attempted to start writing another novel but then the computer broke. This is Pauline’s 'Are you serious?!' face. lol There’s another computer just on the other side of the room but she chose to just stand there looking glum instead.
The goofing around went on for a while.
Kisses and some goofing around. :)
