I had fallen asleep while watching Twilight..my head feels a bit better..still I think I am going to make a doctors appointment to find out why I am getting these headaches..up until the end of last month I was only getting them on the left side of my head behind the left eye..after that serious coughing spell I had back in 2011-12..now they are constant..and getting worse..without me coughing..

I know my allergies are doing a lot of this..but it's not normal for me to get headaches..

It's so hot out right now..and it's after midnight..and the humidity is so bad..

John is working so I am staying up until he gets home don't now when that will be..I want to make sure his kids are ok..even though Tay is 16 I still worry about them being alone 2 flights up above me..

Off to move more pictures..out of tinypic..and onto Imgur and Servimg.com


Thank you so much Crissi, it's beautiful

Hi girls! Just checking in!

Sam - I'm glad your headache is better, and even more glad you have a doctor's appt scheduled to find out what's going on. I hope they run some tests.

*waves to Suzanne! Hey girl! When you get time I have questions regarding the Mod Conflict program.

Lorry - I read your son flew in for a visit! How exciting! I know you'll have a great time!

I still can't believe all the chaos PB has caused everybody! What a totally rotten thing to do without warning! Shame on them! I hope everybody moves their photos and deletes their account and they go broke! That would serve them right!

It's been crazy, hectic, and busy around my house in RL this week. I swear my kids are so needy, I almost never have an evening alone to sit and read and write posts, let alone work on any new sets.

And, I merged all my CC the other night, took forever to do too, but the game didn't take but maybe 10 minutes to load, so I was happy. And, I was soooo excited to load my game and just decorate this wonderful house I had downloaded.

I typed in a search word in the game and BLAM! I crashed back to my desktop. Something in those merged files my game didn't like. So, I ran the Mod Conflict program, and there was a LOT of TS3 stuff in there, so I'm hoping by removing that it will fix the problem.

I'm trying to get more organized, I have back-ups of all my back-ups, I swear! LOL I have folders upon folders of all my TS4 stuff, every creator has a folder, but then I also have a folder (full of folders of creators that allow meshes to be included so I can load that into Sims 4 Studio so I know what I can recolor. But, I'm soooo afraid to delete my back up folders of all my back up folders! LOL

So, that is what I've been doing on my night off, instead of playing or creating or decorating, I'm doing the tedious task of trying to clean everything up! YUCK!

And, while I was eating, I figured I'd pop in and say Hi!

I hope everybody has a wonderful weekend!

you have been busy TJ lol..

I hope they find what is causing these headaches..

Well my computer was supposed to be here today..they were in town..but it's almost 8:30 pm and no show for the UPS...so that means Monday..

Have a lot of bookmarks to get placed in my site and I uninstalled my game..but before I did that I took my downloads folder and put in on the desktop..now it is also time to take everything from there and put it all on the USB Port..

Off to do all that now lol..

Have a great weekend everyone

Sam now this is why you have such a headache!!!!
I do hope that the delivery company has insurance!
And that they will go out of their way to make sure you get the packages meant for you!
What a huge disappointment for you..... I knew you were looking forward to Suzanne's gift to you!

Anita - yes, the packages are insured :D  Claim in already and will speak with Investigative Team on Monday.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
TJ - regarding the Mod Conflict Detector...

ts3 sets showing up - if they are from thesimsresource, you are okay. Especially anumberswoman, mutske, simman, etc... They show as ts3 for some reason.

If from another site, just verify that the files are actually for ts4 - some conversion meshes still show as ts3 after converting to ts4.

You can test those by opening a new ts4 game with just those files.

I have the same search issue in my Big Game. I can search fine in my Small Game (28ishgb).

Next - conflict notifications. If the item is in the same set as the item it is conflicting with - there is no actual conflict. It is okay.

I have yet to come across a conflict notification for items in different sets with different creators. It can happen, but it is rare.

If you get a notice for a ts2 file, then it is a ts2 file and you should delete it.

If you get a red notification for bad/broken cc, you can attempt to redownload the file. Sometimes, for example, with sets from leosims, I download each item individually instead of the entire set. I was running into bad cc notices before or files that didn't have everything in them.

Generally, if it is bad/broken cc, it actually is and you need to redownload the file. Sometimes, the actual item is corrupted and there is nothing you can do.

If you can upload a picture of anything in particular, please do so.

Also, it is a pain to delete things... when selecting items, if you don't click right in the center of the space, it will deselect everything you've already selected...

...I increase my screen magnification when I'm using this application to make selecting files for deletion easier. :D

Not sure what else you might be running into - so please just add it here :D :D :D

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Regarding not being able to search...

Was your game searching fine before merging? With the exact same cc loaded?

If it was, then do the 50/50 with the merged cc files...

This way, you can narrow down which merge file is causing the inability to search (i.e., causing your game to crash when you attempt searching). When you figure it out, test the unmerged cc for that merge file and see if you can recreate the inability to search with just that cc.

It is a tedious process, but faster because the merged cc files will load more quickly than trying it with the unmerged cc folders.

We can skype whenever you have time, or I can pm you my phone number :D

Sam - I'm sorry your package didn't arrive when they said! I absolutely hate when that happens! I hope it all gets straightened out soon

Suzanne - You Are Amazing! TYSM! That was a perfect explanation! And, I was wondering how I had so many TS3 items, I mean, I do download TS2, TS3, and TS4 items all the time, for conversions, but I'm normally diligent at putting the game type in front of the name when I save it to download but I knew that I might have missed a few. I ended up just deleting them. I haven't tested it yet as to see if it still crashes me. I'm still remerging.

And OMG, you would never believe what happened to me last night! So, I decided to go thru all my various back-up, back-up folders and combine most of them, but I separated walls & floors and build mode items into their own folders, and one for objects, and one for "Sim" stuff. I did keep a back-up of all my folders with objects by individual creator names tho.

So, I combining a rather larger folder of objects, had just gotten done running the Bulk Rename program, was looking over everything to make sure I didn't miss nothing and saw 2 items with periods in the name, so I go to manually rename those and don't ask me how, but somehow .... windows rename 3208 files to the same thing! I was freaking out! At first I thought it had made copies so I was going to delete them all, then I noticed all the file sizes were different and I have NO CLUE as to what files they are. So I just deleted them, afraid they'd crash my game with the same name, then I thought about it and ran the Mod Conflict thing, it didn't show any of them as duplicates, so I left them in my folder and merged them, but I will never be able to tell if something is making my game crash now tho! I was seriously emo-sad! That was 1/3 of my entire objects folder!

So, I may be starting from scratch soon LOL

I feel the struggle. I'm trying to fix my mods folder now and I keep making stupid mess ups like renaming files then adding same files back in with all the symbols. I'm so bad at this that I swear I'd pay someone to fix my mods folder for me lol.

I told Suzanne to tell them on Monday..she shouldn't have to pay for the shipping and handling..what do you all think..
I would personally be up the rear end of the head of UPS..come Monday..

What I am afraid of is whoever got that package..may open it and take things out..or just steal the whole box..that is how the people are around here..the part that is missing is everything except the tower..

That's funny Anita..lol..

I have to go lay down my head is spitting again..

I'm supposed to be going around and knocking on doors but this headache is making me want to throw up..and it is soooo hot right now..

OH NO TJ..that would really freak me out with 3208 files being renamed to the same thing..and to start over again..I know the feelings lol..

Oh that is really annoying. UPS lost so much of my stuff when I lived in NYC, but lets not talk about that, lol.
Maybe they will deliver this week, I'm sure Suzanne will be on to them, to sort it out. What about checking the tracking for the parcel? UPS once lost a whole trunk full of my stuff, but it was finally found and delivered about 6 weeks later. I thought Royal Mail drove me up the wall....( I will post any other way possible, lol)but UPS is the same! Hang in there Sam!

I don't think that UPS is any different than the postal service here in the US..you can't trust any of them...

I have looked either someone took that box and the deal off of the doorknob or they didn't deliver in the right area..I wonder sometimes if these people are dyslexic with letters and numbers..

I'm hanging in there tilly thank you..

They said they delivered at 7 pm..I was outside at 7 pm..but earlier that morning UPS truck went by here then John seen one on 3rd street..that is on the west side of Main street..we are on the east side..

My headache seems to be better this evening..and come tomorrow will have Evan for 2 weeks..and right now Madysin is spending the night upstairs with Tanaja and Taniya..

I'm off to do some cleaning..didn't get anything done today with that stupid headache..

tel2 Oh that's just annoying, Sam! I'm sure things will be sorted soon. How hard is it, really, to read an address?!  swear When I have things that require a signature I have UPS hold it for me until I pick it up from the store and actually sign for it, though I know that may not be an option for you.

Oh, TJ!!!

That's terrible!

Sigh - I should mention (late, I apologize) that if I notice that, I go in through my regular file manager, not Bulk Rename to manually delete a few things (like those extra periods or nonEnglish symbols). I'm so sorry...

...I'm just glad that you saved the files.

You can tell if they are causing an issue, though...

...just put in the unmerged files and check to see if they are working. If so, just put in the merged cc file and check again.

If all is well, then you are okay.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
If all is well with the unmerged, but not the merged, try this:

If not, do the break down the 3000+ unmerged (same-named files) into smaller merged cc files and check those.

This way, there at least is a method to test for which merged files contain cc that is causing an issue.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Also, Great News on the Package/UPS Issue!!!

Sam was able to find the misdelivered package in the basement of the adjoining apartment building.

I've updated UPS about the issue and Sam is leaving a not at that location so the driver can deliver to the correct location on Monday.

Yeah! Sam has half the computer system!!! (everything but the tower) <3

Well Deanna, Madysin's mom changed her mind again..now Madysin will be going to school where they live instead of going to school here..and I bet before school starts it will be changed again and if Deanna has to go to the hospital again then Madysin will have to be transferred over here..I wouldn't put up with it..but Terry is waiting for Deanna to mess up..and that way he will get custody of her..and she will sooner or later..but in the mean time Madysin is yoyoing back and forth..

Sam - Awww I'm sorry Madysin (and the rest of your family) is being pulled in different directions so often. That is soooo not good for children! I hope everything turns out ok. But Yeeeehawww! about the package not being lost (or stolen!) so that is fantastic news! And, only one more day! Are you super duper excited?

Suzanne - It's ok you didn't know, but I didn't remove the periods from within Bulk Name Utility, I knew I couldn't remove them that way because it would also remove all the .package periods. I was actually just on my desktop and highlighted it and clicked rename, and I have no idea how (or why) it renamed them all, unless I some how had the entire folder highlighted, which I didn't even know you COULD bulk rename something LOL ... Oh well, all is ok I guess, my game runs ok, I can search, and I have most of my objects.

I have been working on a very special project .. it's a pretty big set, but it's coming along quite nicely and I'm super excited about it, and I can't wait to share it!

Oh, yes, I did misunderstand, TJ...

...did you try a Ctrl+Z before yelling at your computer?

...I have no idea if that would have worked... Sigh. I still feel badly about it.

...Did I tell you the time I deleted my entire set of cc folders? And, then emptied the Recycle Bin?

...oh, yeah - I do relate. bored shame omg crazyspin summerB12 computersmi pull hair out saying goodbye crying

I can't wait to see what you are working on now... you do such wonderful sets! summerB7
