I knew Mio was converting, but I don't think when I downloaded the cc it was behind adfly... so if it is now, I believe you. I think a lot is these days :(

I do use the adfly skipper, so I do not see ads.

I have no issue using that at all. It really is rare when I have to turn it off.

I believe the Ghost thing allows you to not have to do that (from what I read in a great article or Tumblr post about it).

My understanding of adfly is that it only pays a fraction per click, which is why my understanding is why they put so many clicks between the posts and the actual download link...

Are they getting that many downloads? Six clicks to the link times how many downloads equals how many actual adfly clicks equals how much money per item? Is it that much money? Truly?

I don't get it. I really don't.

Creators for ts2 actually did a whole lot of work - especially with the handpainting.

Creating meshes is an intense amount of work.

Converting isn't, is it?

Recoloring takes a fair amount of work to get things done properly. Just changing colors on clothing (per watching some vids doesn't seem to take much, but doing much more than that does).

I know that really good cc takes A LOT of work. Mediocre or crud cc can be churned out by the bucket loads.

I will pay for excellent cc. I won't for the opposite kind.

Sigh. I think you get it.

I totally agree with what most of you have said, I find the ads a pain at times, there's one that comes up on Mediafire about chap who made millions but needs to do adverts about it for some reason LOL.

I'm much the same as you all, if I want it, I perceiver with the ads, I don't pay anything to TSR but I actually like the ads, and have clicked on them then bought suff off the site. One that regularly shows up is my favourite boutique, oh and I once bought some ice cream because it kept showing up on the TSR home page lol.

The only site I donate to is Simcredible, they are without doubt probably one of the best CC creators I download everything they create. They were the reason I got a paypal account.  giggle

I too don't agree with paying for something someone has converted, this isn't their own work and to me is very unethical. if they need money to keep their site running they should have the 'buy me a coffee button'  summerB15  but that's just my personal point of view. glasses

Lmao Anita we think like pirates..........ahaaaaaaaarrr where's me parrot!

Suzanne I would think that converting a mesh would be easier than creating it, so the hard work is already done for these AD...dicts. What used to really get to me, was paying an item in Sims 2 and buying it again in Sims 3, then 4. I would be scared to add up the amount I have spent over the years.........ad free years that is giggle

Can you remember what happened to Hallowsims? She has been banned from tumblr, something to do with ADFLY. It WAS almost impossible to navigate her site though.

Ohhh Nicki the comment about you buying ice cream is hilarious lol I never take any notice of the ads to be honest, except the ones of naked people, they are kinda hard to miss.......got the naked ladies again this morning hmmm They look thoroughly bored standing there with not a stitch on.

I started a PayPal account as well to buy a Sims 2 Simcredible set and every other set thereafter. When TSR was pay....I bought every single thing there also! I don't mind paying for good content.
In saying that, today I downloaded a collaboration set by MXIMS and Minc, totally free with no ads and some really amazing objects.......I would have paid for it!

I am more then happy to help find cc and with downloads. I'll be getting TS4 uploaded soon now that my computer is back up and running (and I didn't have to get a new one! YAY!) so I'm searching for good TS4 cc sites to download goodies from. I don't have nearly as much TS4 cc as I do TS2. giggle

LOL I'll probably do both, to be honest. I played TS4 when it first came out for a very short time and then switched back to TS2. With all the new things coming out for TS4 I'd like to give it a go again.

Hallowsims is now here: https://lycasims.blogspot.com/

I'd think converting would be easier, as well, Lorry... but, then, I haven't tried it yet, lol, so I really have no idea %

ts4 does take a bit of getting used to, Alouette... but as I promised Lisa, you, too, will love it :D

Suzanne is so right....I was ready to uninstall as it just wasn't what I expected for building. But I stuck with it, as Suzanne said I would love it once I got used to it. And I do really like it. It just takes a bit of time.....

Tilly I am so proud of you for sticking with it!

Alouette you are going to LOVE the custom content. Sims 4 is very user friendly, it's soooo easy to install content into your game and take it out if you don't like it.
Plus, you have all of us to help you out if you get stuck tschak

Sam... I'm trying to figure out how to clean off a hard drive and pack up my desktop for you...

Travis is not taking it with him when he and Mitchell move to Minnesota. It has Windows 10 on it, and other than not having a web camera (which you already have, lol), it is a stable system and plays sims 3, and sims 4 just fine :D

Would you be interested if I can figure out how to empty the hard drive of our personal files?

It's funny...

...I just turn on some really cool music from Pandora and get into a nice meditative state and download.

If I'm having to wait on one site, I'll open a bunch of links (like 10-20) and go on to the next site! :D

I end up with lots of windows and tabs open and just click through them with a pattern-type process.

I add creator names/site names to the files that don't have them, reupload them to my OneDrive for backup purposes, extract with 7zip to a holding folder, rename, move into the proper creator/site folder, then determine if I'm going to merge them into an active game folder or leave them where they are for later use...

...I rotate through all of these steps and just keep busy until all steps are completed for all files.

I can literally do this for hours and hours, lol.

Yep. This is me. When I'm current with downloading, It takes about an hour or so, daily. (I go through cc sites & Tumblr at night and send myself emails, heheheh, for the next morning)

...when I've been busy with challenges, contests, or heaven forbid *weeks,* like with DOTY (YIKES), it can take all day, or DAYS!!!  LOLOLOLOLOL

I told you that I was a certified, licensed cc download junkie!!! rofl301
