Some Interesting Developments

So I know you guys are probably hankering after a new chapter of The Heart Family Legacy. Well, I have some good and bad news on that front.

The new chapter is imminent...ish. I have all the pics done- I just need to write it, and that's going to take a bit of time as the next chapter is going to be about fifty percent longer than usual. More for your money yanno?

The other reason why the chapter has been delayed somewhat is...

FuryRed Says is moving.

Some Love for Kittycattylion

 In the only way I know how...

Say it with sushi.

For those who don't know, the other day a bunch of threads on the EA forum randomly disappeared. Naturally people were concerned- many had put a huge amount of work into their modelling competitions/stories etc., so to see them scrubbed was somewhat heartwrenching.

There was hope that it was just an admin error, but sadly today we were given the news that the deleted threads would not be recovered:

It's an interesting explanation isn't it? And to me it provokes two main questions:

 1- who would be sad enough to waste their time hacking
2- who would be vindictive enough to deliberately destroy other people's hard work?

It kind of boggles the mind.

So amongst the lost- The Tea Legacy thread; a legacy that Kittycattylion had invested a huge amount of time and effort into. A legacy written entirely on the forums, meaning now that the thread has been deleted it's gone forever.
 I'm sorry this happened to you Kitty :(

King Leonidas vs. Angry Kitteh

Do you like my new friend? I won him on one of those grabby machines todae, cause am cool  ^_^

Obviously I loves Leonidas the Lion, but not everyone else in my family does...

Angry Kitteh is unimpressed by the awesome presence of King Leonidas.

Angry Kitteh does not like to share food with King Leonidas.

Angry Kitteh tries to push King Leonidas over when she thinks I'm not looking.
Angry Kitteh is not a fan of The Glomp.

Angry Kitteh plots the death of King Leonidas when her inferior hunting skillz are ridiculed.

Angry Kitteh tries to pretend it does not enjoy The Spoonage.

Angry Kitteh should just succumb now to life as King Leonidas's bitch.

Knowledge is Power

A little plug now for something I discovered a while ago but failed to mention.

A lot of the time, or most of the time, people go to the forums to ask questions- how to do this that or the other in the game. Usually this provides good results, but there are quicker and easier ways to find the info you seek. Such as this:

I came across this site whilst looking for help regarding how to build a Simbot, and boy was it useful. It has all sorts of information, from the basics- such as how to actually play the game- to some of the more involved aspect of gameplay- like completing lifetime wishes.

The site even has a review of Barnacle Bay, in-depth guides for each of the expansion packs, a FAQ section which provides answers to a lot of technical questions, and a forum.

Happy knowledge getting!

A General Wonderingment

You see this lovelyness? These are awesome-o FuryRed tees that were very kindly created for me by Abby. I <3s them, but in a true tragedy of Romeo and Juilet-esque proportions I cannot have them.

All the male versions work fine, but I've tried each of the female tees and, well, I get the following result:

A headless Fury is a sad Fury.

Yep, for some reason the t-shirts end up like this in my game :( Abby's had a fiddle and they're alright for her, so my question to you all is this- are you plagued by headless Sims too?

You can get the excellent tees HERE- if you download could you let me know if you find yourself in a similar predicament?

I have a feeling it's just my game that's being gay though, so my next question is this- can anyone think of anything I might have in my game that could be causing this weirdness? I have a lot of mods and shiz so I wonder if any of them could be causing a conflict?

I hope I can get my grubby mitts on the sexeh clothing soon.
My Sims deserve to wear my name with pride, dammit!

As you may know, currently in my legacy I have six possible heirs for the next generation. Six!
They're not all going to make it, but that doesn't mean they shouldn't all have a chance at happiness...

Now, I can't be arsed to create partners for all of them, so I had a thought- what if I got the Sims from you guys? Obviously I have plans for some of my Simmies, but the others will be wanting to get married and have kiddies to carry on the legacy, so if you can provide me with some good genes that would be supah.

A little note though- I do not download Sims from the exchange. I'm not taking that risk. If you'd like to offer me a Sim could you please upload the .Sim file (from My Documents> Electronic Arts> The Sims 3> Saved Sims) to a file hosting site like Mediafire and link me to that. Info about what CC is required would be good as well :)

If you've got designs on your Simmie shacking up with someone specific do let me know.
Here's a recap of their traits and shiz to help you out-

Vegetarian, Good, Genius, Flirty

Insane, Perceptive, Mean Spirited, Schmoozer

Exciteable, Easily Impressed, Ambitious, Natural Cook

Loner, Genius, Grumpy, Charismatic

Good, Angler, Friendly, Clumsy

Brave, Snob, Artistic, Commitment Issues

I'm looking for Young Adults. Please don't freak out at me if your Sim doesn't get chosen.

Ooh My

Answers regarding the Gifters Banned debacle are proving interesting...

Read THIS.

After seeing that my reaction was kind of... 'hmm'. I mean, it's an explanation of halves- it doesn't tell us the whole story. However, after nosing round on the forums though I came across some more info.

It seems (another) website glitch enabled people to download Simpoints for free, and it looked a little something like this:

So far kerby has admitted to using this method to 'illegally' gain Simpoints but I don't think there has been word from Alexurt, so it's unclear whether all those banned were in fact guilty. It definitely answers some questions though doesn't it- namely of how people could afford to gift so much, but it also raises others. I guess things aren't quite as black and white as expected- it's not a case of Simmers Good, EA Bad.

I'm going to be honest though... if I'd have come across the free Simpoints link you can be hella sure I would have used it, and I know I'm not the only one.

Some Simmers did a 'bad' thing, they got what they deserved, but to be perfectly honest I don't blame them. All the uber moral people out there are understandably going to be outraged about this, but me? Eh, I don't think I'm in any position to judge.

Free Stuffs and Bulgy Stuffs (Booty in Many Senses of the Word)

I've just been nosing around the booty, and I was very happy to discover that they've updated with a bunch of Newsea hairs, meaning I finally get my grubby mitts on this lovely do  ^^

I think Sim Fury likes her new look :D

...stop preening...


Something else I've recently added to my game is, well, the rather engaging bulge shown above *shifty eyes*

It's a default replacement for the standard EA undies with a bit more oomph and, well, it's clearly very distracting. Although, IMHO it kind of looks a bit pointy to me o_o

I'm not even shocked at Sim Fury's blatant perving anymore, she clearly takes after RL me :P

Has Anyone Else Heard About This?

I've just come back from mooching around the forums as I do from time to time, and was somewhat perturbed to come across a number of threads and posts regarding one surprising subject: Alexurt has been banned.

Yes, the very lovely Simmer who gifted me Barnacle Bay, and who has kindly gifted so many others in the past, has been banned and her page seems to have been deleted, along with kerby414- another very generous Simmer. And the reason for this? 'Abuse of gifting.'

I fucking kid you not- that's the reason they've been given so far- that they gifted too much. I seriously can't even begin to comprehend just what the fuck EA were thinking. I mean, put aside the fact that they seem to be incomprehensible mean bastards, but from a monetary sense why would they do this? By these two Simmers being generous they are giving EA money, which is exactly what they want right? The only reason I can think of for them doing this is if Alexurt and kerby were using fraudulent Simpoint cards, but as I've seen a picture Alexurt posted of all the Simpoint cards she's bought then I know that this just isn't true.

EA... Fuck, I don't even know what to say about them right now. Absolute pieces of scum.

If you want to read more about this massive error you can do so on this Facebook page. You can show your support there, but I will just suggest you be careful regarding how you act on the forums- 'Bring Soandso Back' campaigns are never looked on favourably by the shithouses that are SimGurus.

And hey, if you ever want anything from The Store- go to MATY for fucks sake. I'd only give EA more money, aside from buying the games themselves, if I could shove it down their cold, stupid throats all personal like.

Wow... Just can't fucking believe it.

What A Sim Wants

Chapter 10: The Pursuit of Hapenis

Thursday, 30 September 2010

Yay and Nay

I has good news to report- thanks to some helpful suggestions from lovely Simmers, my game is now crash-free once more. Yayyyyyyyyyy!

This info, provided by Rad *waves*, has proved so useful to me that I've shoved it into a little guide below for people having similar problems. Check it oot if you're game is a bit crashtastic too.

In other news, I've been Simming up a storm since my game was fixed as I'm trying to keep future chapters of the legacy on a fairly organised schedule. It's partly cause I loves my current legacy family so much, and partly because there's a lot of things I want to get done before Late Night comes out. I don't think it's going to happen though :/

Is it just me, or has this EP crept up proper fast? I've still got a bunch of careers to explore in Ambitions and a load of other shiz, and I just know that when Late Night comes out I'm gonna be so overwhelmed with the awesomeosity that I wont have enough time to do everything. This expansion just seems like a whole mess of joy in one- apartments, musical instruments, the band and celebrity careers, nightclubs, vampires, THE SMUSTLE.

I honestly hope the next EP after this is such a total pile of wank that I wont want to buy it, and I can have more time to catch up...

Do you like my pretty picture? I took it as the avatar shot for my Simbot family on, but the bloody thing wont upload! D:<

For some reason the file size is over 90MB, which is somewhat ridonkulous. Is there a way to purge a file of all the unnecessary crap before uploading?

I have the same problem with the lovely Darwin here- he's just one man, yet his file size is nearly 60MB O_O The boy has a big package, just not in the way one would hope... Methinks I can fix it though by stripping off all sims3.pack CC, but what of my marvellous Simbot family? I don't know how I'm gonna get them uploaded :/


How To Stop Your Game Crashing (Hopefully)

Error code 12, crash to desktop... do these horrors sound familiar to you? You thought it would be easy- just buy a sexy Sims game, shove it on your PC, and play- but oh no. It's not always that simple.

If you're suffering from the dreaded CTD, there are things you can do to prevent it. Now this is not a cure-all fix; I can't guarantee it'll solve your woes, but it's worked for me so hopefully it'll work for you.

1. Download and install the CFF Explorer.

2. Go to C:/Program Files/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3/Game/Bin and look for a file named TS3.exe. This is the base game file however, so if you have an expansion you need to find the file for that EP instead, e.g.- for Ambitions it can be found in C:/Program Files/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3 Ambitions/Game/Bin, and it's called TS3EP02.exe. 
Once you've found the file you require, first make a copy of it in case things go all tits-up, then right-click and select 'Open with CFF Explorer'.

3. Once the file is open look on the left hand side for a section called 'File Header' and click that, then click the blue box on the right where it says 'Click here', as shown in the picture:

4. Another window will open. Click in the box next to where it says 'App can handle > 2gb address space' and click 'Ok'.

5. Save your modified file and overwrite when it asks you to.
Now, this should be simple, but I encountered problems. I'm the admin of my computer, yet it wouldn't let me overwrite the file- it kept saying I didn't have permish or some shit. If you find yourself having this problem as well there is a way around it, which is to start again with the file, but before you modify it drag it out of the Sims folder to the desktop or summat, then follow steps 3-4, save it, and move it back.

And that should be it! Hopefully this will help stop your crashing issues- it's definitely worked for me. Just remember to repeat this method every time you patch your game or install an expansion pack.

I'm getting quite hacked off now...

As you may know, I'm always quite skeptical when it comes to patching my game, and this is made even worse when my worries end up being founded. When I was playing Barnacle Bay it was all good- no weirdness that I can remember. Now however when playing my legacy game I'm having uber problems. I've been attempting to play my game since about 6pm, and I've already had at least five crash-to-desktops. What the fudge is going on?

I went back to my olde preventative methods from when I had my shit computer, i.e.- saving every ten minutes. But apparently the demons in my game are too strong for me now, because twice it's crashed whilst it was in the middle of saving.

I'm about ready to pull my hair out in frustration.
Imma have some white chocolate Toblerone to make myself feel better...

As Promised:

Chapter 9: The Good, The Bad, and The Creepish

Love Hearts

So I've just been into my legacy game- first time Simming with my new wirelessnessness, which was hampered slightly by my cat's desire to sit on my lap at all costs- even if it meant me balancing the keyboard on her head as she attempted to sleep...

Anyways, you'll be pleased to know that the new chapter of The Heart Family Legacy is a-go. Not til tomorrow mind, so don't get too excited- but it is coming (well, it's 1am, so it'll be today, just much later today... it'll be after I've at least had a sleep, pretty much).

Some of you are probably wondering what has caused the delay in its release, and quite simply it was because I just found some other things I'd rather do than Sim or write for a while. Shocking I knows. Yesterdae though I was checking on the Heart Legacy blog, and after reading all the loverly comments people had left me, I suddenly felt the urge to crack on with the legacy just take over me like a sexy disease. Well, that and the fact that the whole copy/paste issue that takes up most of my time when organising the pictures is now much, much easier, due to my awesome wireless mouse with shortcut buttons. I'm in geeker heaven right now ^_^

Anyways, to the sometime point of this post. After fannying about with the pics for a while I had the real want to play my game again, so off I went into Twinbrook to catch up on the Heart household. Whilst I was there though I came across something very strange...

In between the last time I played my game and now I've patched, so I can only assume that's what caused it. And now before you go 'arrrrggghhhh has something gone wrong is the legacy ruined?', fear not- the weird occurance is actually something good for a change.

Has anyone ever seen this before?

Now maybe this is just me; maybe this was all in the smallprint and I missed it, but if not- what is it? What, we now have levels of attraction back in the game? Is this like a precursor to Late Night?

Whatever it is, it's cool :D

HOLY COW! After typing all this I finally just clicked what it is. My bloody mods of course *slaps self* That was the other thing I changed when I patched my game- I updated my mods.

This is just more excellence by Twallan. 
Pah, and here was me thinking EA had actually added something we'd been asking for. How silly am I?

...Don't answer that.

Barnacle Bizzle, Fo Shizzle

 Hello all, and welcome to Captain FuryRed's tour of Barnacle Bay. 


Thursday, 23 September 2010

Holy Fuck Me Friday

Major MAJOR love to Alexurt right now, for she has gifted me Barnacle Bay! I'm uber happy about this cause, although I bitched about the price of it and shiz- which I stand by- free stuff is free!

I know you can get it from MATY, but I've never had much luck downloading from there so I think the legit approach would have been my only way of getting my grubby mitts on it. 
Alexurt is the most generous Simmer EVAR, and I owe her like a million glomps.

Also, there's someone else wishing to express their gratitude...

That's right- Captain FuryRed is moving in. I'll be sure to post some pics of Captain Fury's Adventures in Barnacle Bay for you all to admire... that is as soon as it downloads : /

I appear to be having a problemo.. When I go to the Barnacle Bay page in The Store and click on 'Download' the launcher opens and that... and then nuffink happens :o I'm concerned cause I want it like NAO, and I don't know how to make it work. Whyyyyyyyyyyy can't EA ever make things simple?

Oh penis I think I need to patch.

Edit- have patched and it's now downloading! I'm strangely thrilled :D

Global Spelling Epidemic

I think there's a spelling mistake sick sickness taking over the world, with regards to one word in particular:


It's not 'definately', but everyone I know spells it that way, and I find it very strange... I actually used to spell it 'definately' myself until handy Firefox informed me with wavy red lines that it was wrong.

Psst, I haven't forgotten about the next chapter of The Heart Family Legacy, and Cassidy hasn't forgotten about you...

I think my mouse is failing on me yanno, which is making Simming very difficult as I oft times have to click at least fivefuckingtimes before the damn thing registers >: ( Between this and that weird flashing-lights-in-the-corner-of-my-eye issue which made me unable to see properly for a little while, I'm behind on the olde legacy. And of course there's the fact that I've defected from the Sims to my beloved television once again as I generally veg out and watch back-to-back episodes of BB USA...

Ahem. I'm looking for a nice wireless mouse/keyboard combo. Know of any good ones?

As you were.

Squeeeeeeeeee, As They Say

The build up to Late Night goes on, and I for one am as giddy as a walrus. I've just been catching it up with all the info that's out about it and it's looking goooood, and the following in particular got me all tingly inside:

Mebbe it's just me and the fact that my Simmies don't often listen to the radio, but were there actually any real songs in Simlish in the base game?

Anyways, the song underlined in red is the one I'm most intrigued about. I loves Hadouken!, and I'm wondering how this is going to work in Simlish...

And The Bitch Goes On, And On, And On...


Declaration of War (not really)

Mares... you are dead to me now.

Just joshing!

A Can Of Worms

This is something that's been in the back of my mind for a while now but I've so far resisted posting it because I don't want to mix up any bad blood. Increasingly these days though I find myself feeling less like Nice Fury and more like Say What I Feel Fury.

So here goes...

Some People Have No Shame

Now you may have seen this lady around on the forums and, like me, your initial reaction might well have been 'eek, spelling disaster!' Now luckily I'm not one to reply on the forums just to criticise others, and fortunately I think before I speak (or type).

If you don't know what I mean by now, check out her signature.

Fair dos right? Ha, not for some.

Perhaps the fact that she scrubbed her post could be seen as a omission of guilt, but FUCKINGBOOHOO JARSIE because the quotes know all.

What a cunt.

Now I'm used to her pathetic attempts to justify her life by tearing down others, but this is just too much. Jarsie's unforgiveable comments towards Sara actually made me feel a bit unwell.

Jarsie is a sad, self-indulgent, spiteful little oxygen-thief, and if I knew her in real-life I would have found it hard to resist the urge to shove her back inside her mother.

Go to hell Jarsie- *no one* cares what *you* think.
