At the moment totally ticked off:-
Problem with sinks placed on my new Late Night counters not displaying correctly.
Problem when Sims perform my Late Night Piano and there is no sound yet okay when practicing.
Both of these ongoing and in the Object Creation Workshop & Repair Center Forum and I daresay I will come up with a solution.

Yesterday a PM to advise I need to fix the Dresser Drawer in my Sims3 Base Game Bedroom - no white trim and implying that I do not check out animations to add insult to injury! If that is the case why do I have two posts in the Creator's Repair Forum?
Naturally I replied with my comment on the issue, However, this morning I woke to realize there is no white trim on this dresser only a width length silver handle - so another post to the Moderator responsible.

I appreciate I still have a lot to learn about creating objects as I only have four and a half months experience; and I do enjoy creating and planning what to do next which drives me on. I am aware there will be objects beyond my creative skills and I accept that. Perhaps in the fullness of time, that will change. In the meantime though, it discourages me from further uploads and makes my mood pretty low when a Moderator (who I would dearly love to name and shame if I knew their name) does this.

I wish I still had some of my chocolate treats from Christmas...

New Year - New Goals!
Date Posted: 6th Jan 2021 at 12:03 PM
Today, I received an MTS email advising I had accomplished a new achievement of 50 K downloads.

Now I need to plan what to do next or what other achievements I can do...other than finish this last box of chocs
So this week the plan is to try and finish items from Sims3 Late Night EP - kitchen, Lounge Bar - unsure if I can do a hot tub...?

Last night I tried to create a piano and it seemed fine: options to practice or perform okay, practice went okay; performing - tip jar as expected but no sound when the piano is playing. I really wanted to have this piano as it is cheap at $700!
I looked up any tutorials on musical instruments for help. There is an issue with musical instruments that came with Uni and a mod needs to be installed but as I used a basic game object I don't think there should be a problem.

This morning I tried to create the grand piano cloning the piano that came with Bon Voyage. It was the same story - Dirk tipped Darren $50 for a performance that could not be heard! I will put these on hold for now.

Please do not let there be more problems especially with counters...

Late Night EP
Date Posted: 18th Dec 2020 at 1:44 PM
This is has been a busy week so haven't got as much as I would like done - still a few Xmas gifts, food and wine and housework to do!

Still at any possible chance I try create another TS3 objects for Sims2
I am trying to create a Dive Bar collection but problems making a counter - still has the original counter colors only!
It looks like other creators have had this problem and there seems to be a way to resolve it (fingers crossed) I can follow how to do this too...
I will also need to look for a tutorial about linking modulator chairs. How silly of me to think if you clone from a Nightlife or Apartment Life modulator chair that it will link

Well I can't say that I wasn't expecting this!

Using custom wallpaper needs a separate entry with details of price and location plus screenshots; so currently I have tried to take the best possible pics and resubmitted to the Moderator's queue. It is quite hard to take wall shots plus light from windows can make the middle wallpaper look a different shade from the two either side. I hope it meets Mod the Sims standards...(fingers crossed).

Lot Building
Date Posted: 9th Dec 2020 at 6:51 AM
Thanks to HugeLunatic and simsample, discovered it was the rear garden that was the issue - so now know how to create a rear garden with a building that has a foundation.

By this time though, I discovered I liked having just decking in the rear garden so have submitted this lot to the moderation queue. I did use the Clean Installer but I think I have forgotten to mention it on the script - so expecting a CR already.

It is a funny thing but I had the opportunity to bypass the moderation queue; today when I check Statistics I don't, just as well I chose the option as it was my first lot upload.

Problem - No Apartments
Date Posted: 29th Nov 2020 at 7:33 PM
Finished working on this apartment lot but when when I change lot zoning from residential to apartment base, there is a fault that one of the apartments needs to be fixed. When I check at the neighborhood - not one of the six are functioning.

I can't understand it - I have used the correct apartment door and mat for entry at the front door. At the back, fences separate the homes with no gates to access any house. Maybe it needs a half wall rather than a fence?

Too Small!
Date Posted: 28th Nov 2020 at 9:53 AM
Well, I started creating the lot and placement of paths, homes and play park; but not too happy with the size of homes as not big enough for two or three bedrooms - looks like my only option might be to have three-storey townhouses rather than suburban two storey terraced homes.
Perhaps I should start again with a city apartment block or create new TS3_TS2 objects...?

Surburban Apartments
Date Posted: 27th Nov 2020 at 11:32 AM
Now read over the rules for uploading lots and I think I get it but will be sending to Moderators for any corrections needed.

I was having a think about what type of apartments - city or suburbs and this time I am going to try suburbs.
I have in my mind's eye what I kind of want but can I achieve it? I just hope there is a lot size big enough for six terraced homes and small playpark area...

Time to Decide
Date Posted: 26th Nov 2020 at 1:59 PM
Just uploaded the Design & High-Tech Stuff - Bedroom, time to make that decision!
I am swaying towards building a new apartment lot with hopefully good layouts, and able to create a few bedroom sizes rather than all the same, so various Sim families can reside together.
I better check out the rules for uploading a lot...

What next?
Date Posted: 25th Nov 2020 at 9:30 AM
On the home run to complete the Sims3 Design & High-Tech Stuff items into Sims2 objects (and probably finishing my favourite Sims3 Stuff packs! ) , it is time to start thinking about what to do next...
Should I continue doing more Sims3 conversions or move on and submit lots for Sims2 and Sims3?
I also noticed, I haven't done a Sims3 kitchen conversion - maybe I should...
I also have a Sims3 world I finished back in the Spring that I could edit to bring it under the threshold size of 50mb - should I do that?
Should I convert some Sims4 items into Sims2 or vice versa?
Alternatively, I could convert some Sims3 objects for Sims4 - although there appears to be lots of these items already uploaded?
Wow - so much I could be doing...
