I continue to reinstall Sims, undaunted (ok, maybe daunted but unbowed!) by the massive amount of work. Like a dog with a bone, I'll just keep gnawing away at it. I'm stubborn like that. Quaxi came back to update the SimPE site! Numenor came back to update AGS to work with UC! The sims 2 community is alive and kicking! Windows update 1709 borked my game but the community strives mightily to find solutions! Onwards! Right after this nap. I'm trying to not even think about looking for my years of collected cc until after I get the game running properly on Win 10. If I don't find all those custom eyebrows and skins that were just the way I like them, I will probably still manage to carry on, somehow.
