I have just paid $5 in support of Leo Sims on Patreon.

The content is amazing and with no ads, the experience is much more enjoyable....money well spent :girlie5:

Lorry and I were discussing this... I subscribed, then she did, LOL.

Neither of us is unhappy :D

I don't think you will be disappointed, Anita <3

LOL I said the same thing last night to Suzanne giggle
I haven't really looked at who else is on Patreon, you have to pay for each creator you want to support, so it can get quite expensive.

LOL!! Good to know..... maybe we should choose a different one each other month!
That way we can support all of them, and get all new content every time we support them.

I have a real issue with pay items. It's just another TSR. There is no way I would subscribe to patreon. I only build and share lots, so there is no point as it can't be included. I do support creators and buy a coffee or two. It drives me up the wall..... soapbox soapbox soapbox

I'm going to put in my two cents worth lol..

There are way to many creators out there that are amazing and a lot of them are right here on CBS..so why would anyone want to pay for something that may or may not be a good as CBS creators..to me it's all about the money and not about the people..and if your doing this for a living and want to get paid..well I say go get a job..this is supposed to be a game and a fun game at that..and if you are creating, it is supposed to be for fun right..not for money..

There are 2 sites that I bought a cup of coffee for..and would do it again for CBS..and there are a couple of others that I will support..but I don't go on them often enough to do that..and one is struggling to stay alive..the site isn't active but I do go check on her once in a while and the other one has a few active members..and I really care about them..and I would buy them a cup of coffee..but to actually pay to get a Sims item, no way no how..

Ok there is my two cents worth giggle

onstrike with paying for a Sims creation.. onstrike


Thank you so much Crissi, it's beautiful

In a way Lisa and Sam I feel the same. But when you decorate and you see something you really want, I close my eyes and go ahead and buy it.
I do not mind supporting SIMcredible by buying their donation stuff, for their goodies are really of very good quality.
I only support TSR because my friend is a featured artist there, and she is unemployed.
I would leave the subscription for Leo for a month or two depending on how often she updates.
Then I will take it down again.
It is just lovely to download without ads!

But Sam, thank you my dear, for the lovely compliment!
It is appreciated!!

It's so true though..I believe in my heart that we have some of the best creators out there..for all 3 of the games..and I'm not sure though that if this was a paid site like TSR..I would pay to get any of the creations..
I don't log into TSR..if I need something from there..it has to be a link to that item..that is the only way I use TSR..

Well I support TSR, simply for my own convenience of being able to search and generally find anything I'm looking for, and without ads, and being able to add it to my basket and download in one big zip files. But it's only $20 every 6 months so I don't even notice it.

I would rather do that and be done and have 6 months worth of downloading ability rather than having to pay each month for something or for individual items. I was going to get a donation set from SIMcredible the other day and I went to see how much it was, and it was like almost $5 for one set! I was like, no ... I don't need it that bad.

But, I agree with Sam, there is a plethora of talented creators out there who offer their stuff for free and some of THE best ones are right here at Bloom!

I wouldn't pay for anything unless I thought it was well and truly worth it.
If Leo was putting up converted cc on Patreon, then I'd be the first to complain, but she isn't. Sadly I can't resist her meshes crying.......I need help!

Unfortunately this may lead to more creators charging for their work, and if that happens, then the whole Pirate thing will start over as well.

We are very lucky to have the creators we have here, because they are all so amazing, and if I had to pay for their work, then I probably would.

It was my understanding that charging for CC was against EA's TOU. I'm not 100% sure tho, so I could be wrong or misinterpretted something.

I decided to go ahead and do the monthly support of LeoSims - mostly because I download almost every single thing they put up...

...not so much the clothing; however, they really do wonderful recolors :D

For me, it is worth it.

I do feel the same way about creators charging as the rest of you do...

...but, I have always paid if I felt it was worth my money.

Like TJ, I pay for TSR - and I've done so for years. I purchase all of Simcredibles' donation sets, even kid stuff in order to support them... I also purchased every single one of Tingelingelator's donation sets.

I understand that not everyone is able to do the same and who knows? Maybe ts4 creators will eventually change.

I do agree with Lorry, however - if they all start charging, the booty would come back.

Last time I looked, there was very few TS4 items. Nothing on the Booty but a few things on Sunset Sims, mostly hair and these are old hairs from like 2015

I don't think so Suzanne..I have it for Sims2 and I think Sims3 is on there I don't pay much attention to anything but Sims2..lol
I got that link several years ago..and I am shocked I haven't lost it hehe..

So even if Sims4 is on there..I'm not sure it would be on the link I have..because it is an old one..but everything on there still works..

Just to clarify......we are not paying for downloads, we are paying for the removal of advertisements!

And that's how they are getting around the threat of being sued by EA I guess.....smart move whoever came up with it
