  1. Whoever you are, I hope you never have to go through the hell you've put me through. Thank you for damn near costing me my life. You win.  I'm gone. Have fun celebrating. Oh and don't forget to look over your shoulder. Your deeds will catch up to you and I won't have anything to do with it but I'm sure you will blame me just as you have always blamed me for the problems YOU create.

    I think it has something to do with Firestorm. Ever since the change there's a handful of sims that I visit regularly to shop or explore in and I can barely walk. For months I thought that they just never restart their sim or something then I happened to go into the same sims with another viewer and everything loads quickly and I can actually navigate them without lag or feeling like I'm walking through some sort of invisible sludge.

    That isn't an FS issue. Use the FS wiki to troubleshoot. I'm done sticking my neck out for people only to get it chopped off.

    Scylla, though I understand your trepidation, show a little compassion for me. If she does get a bigger brain, there might be room for me to crawl back inside. I'm currently sitting on the window ledge, soaked and shivering. There's not much I can do to rein her in from this side of the glass.

    Well... maybe, just maybe... if you worked with her rather than against her. You know. Work smarter, not harder. 😋

    As Fauci told the Washington Post  here , at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, masks were not recommended for the general public, as authorities were trying to prevent a mask shortage for health workers and the extent of asymptomatic spread was unknown.

    I meant on day one.  I've been here forever and am constantly tweaking my own profile.  I just added new stuff today.  But I certainly didn't care about it back in 2004.  We all have different priorities and when starting a new thing, some people are gonna wanna go out and explore before investing time in a profile.  

    I meant on day one. I'm an AW "refugee". First time I ever logged in was 2003. I certainly did want to get out and explore but I also knew that there would be some people who would give me crap over not having anything in my profile from many years of past experiences online.

    You weren't wrong, it was just a harsh way to talk to someone new.  1 day old avie...of course they're gonna have a blank profile.  Who sits in a new game and just fills out a profile?  Especially a game like sl people tend to want to find things to do and explore.

    Me. I've been doing it for over 20 years. Why? Because people have always fussed about blank or almost blank profiles and/or forum avatars so why not just nip it in the bud and be done with it.

    Did you really think I would waste this much time and energy on something I don't believe is worthwhile? At least I took over as the most unpopular person on the Forum.

    So you do believe it is worthwhile to wipe out all humans on the planet except those who believe as you do. Good to know. 

    And if you were trying to stick a barb in with the most unpopular person jab, it won't work. I've never been the most unpopular person on the forum.

    I do appreciate the confirmation of what I've been watching go down for over 50 years now.

    Well then I will leave you with this study from Jan 21/21 after your leadership change, that in part says;

    https://www.kff.org/report-section/kff-covid-19-vaccine-monitor-january-2021-vaccine-hesitancy/

    So pretty conclusive that Democrats jumped on the vaccine bandwagon after Biden came into office. There was mention elsewhere on how even the Dems while on the campaign trail cast doubt on the vaccines as long as Trump was in charge.

    Please tell me you are playing Devil's Advocate and you don't really believe the bs you've been posting.

    Hopefully I haven't done anything so bad yet to be torched 🔥

    Maddy "torching" you isn't necessarily a bad thing. When Maddy torches you, you get a warm, cozy feeling, like you've been wrapped in a wool blanket that doesn't scratch. ;)

    All. The. Time.

    The problem in SL is that so many people rely upon the sales and events to furnish them with their wardrobe . . . until the next sale or event rolls around. So, you buy this wonderful new dress (at an event that is being attended by thousands of other women also looking for a wonderful new dress), and are excited to wear it to the club that night . . . and invariably there is at least one other woman who has had exactly the same thought.

    I'm probably a little stupid about this. Another woman wore a new dress I'd been saving to show off to a club I go to every Sunday night. This was about 2 months ago . . . and I still can't bring myself to wear this dress i love to that club because someone had already worn it there.

    Yeah, that's me. The anti-consumerist, pro-sustainability socialist. Can't you tell?

    /me sighs.

    Release your inner model. Do it better. Simple but oh so elegant. ;)

    I meant to imply something on the scale of, and abilities we have within, SL. Anyone contributing, designing, selling, building, etc. I apologize if that was not understood. Sims 4 quality + SL's openness. Not just EA making "packs" of things ... open.

    In March 2007, an Electronic Arts employee Luc Barthelet, who served as General Manager of Maxis during the development of The Sims,[6] stopped by the official forums after years of ignoring the game. Luc had left The Sims Online production team after the game went live and hadn't contributed to the game environment until March 2007. After no development of The Sims Online, he assembled a team of seventeen people to push significant updates to the game under a project titled "TSO-E".

    A major update to the game was user custom content. The TSO-E developers were interested in any user-submitted ideas on how they could maintain a stable economy to negate the gains players made illegitimately through exploits.[7] Custom objects were enabled within TSO in late 2007, allowing players to upload .bmp and .jpg images as well as .iff files. Furniture could be created and uploaded in the form of single-tiled chairs, sculptures, and decorations and multi-tiled tables.

    Seeing as this was not enough, the TSO-E developers combined the game's cities together into two similar cities, re-branded the game as EA-Land, and wiped all player data. The Test Center 3 city was created freely accessible in hopes of expanding the game's userbase, and in-game ATMs were added, which could accept real money for Simoleons, in hopes of generating revenue. The system in which players could purchase properties and submit custom content was compared to Second Life.

    EA/Maxis tested the open world environment with The Sims 3. Then, with S4, they reverted back to loading screens for the benefit of players who could not afford high end gaming pcs.

    https://www.gamezone.com/originals/the-sims-4-s-loading-screens-are-a-win-in-every-respect-says-ea/

    Personally, I  prefer open worlds, however, since I was used to loading screens, I'm not overly bothered by them. If there is an S5 (most likely in a few years) and it is open world, I'll probably get it if I can afford it. If not, I'm more likely to just stick with 2, 3 and 4. I still have all of the original Sims 1 discs but the graphics are just a bit too old for my eyes.

    I suspect the issue with many of these efforts will be where they draw the line at PG rated content (let alone anything remotely adult).

    EA has the technical ability to make something like Sims 5 open and massively multiplayer, and would most likely make huge bucks doing so, but unless it's on a friends only spaces/small scale (think Animal Crossing meets the Sims), then they have to deal with all of the insane adult drama that comes with anyone being able to be on the platform/in the metaspace. And there is no way EA wants to moderate and deal with the headaches caused by many of the typical wing nuts inhabiting and griefing online spaces in their own, loving ways. ;)

    And we know, SLex in all it's wild and wicked forms, is still a big draw here, and I suspect without freedom to play in whatever ways we (legally) want to online as adults (Roblox being an exception based on the demographics), EA won't want this. Yet. Never say never.

    we sometimes think that the direction of virtual worlds is that it will result in some great break thru that will advance the human condition

    then EA comes out with Sims 4: Bust The Dust Kit. For $7.95 can clean your house as a chore, because your house fills up with dust unless you vacuum it with a actual virtual vacuum cleaner

    and my first thought being a bit nerdy was: That be quite cool!

    then my second thought was: nuuuu!

    😺

     

     

     

    But... what about the dust bunnies? Won't someone think of the dust bunnies?

  15. Never argue with Innula. She will beat you down with facts and figures backed up with more evidence than you could read in a lifetime.

     

    I'm sure someone will find this post offensive and report it so I probably won't be posting again. I hope whoever is behind it never has to deal with what they dish out. I wouldn't wish how that feels on my worst enemy. Maybe some day some brave soul will have the backbone to tell me why everyone hates me.
