About Me & My TOU

on Sun Dec 31, 2017 6:41 am
Message reputation : 100% (5 votes)
Hi All  :welcome1:  to my spot  danceG

Here is how it all happened for me  flyer

I've been playing Sims since The Sims 2 in 2004. My sons got me involved with it, lol  kissing

~~~they both started with the original, The Sims!

I started out attempting to play the Simmies themselves, but rapidly found myself interested in building and custom content.

I eagerly awaited the release of The Sims 3 and dove into building with a passion.

I read all the tutorials, then printed them out, and followed them step-by-step, over and over again!  thlol

...yes, that was a very interesting time because people didn't always include every step and sometimes I just got plainly lost!  omg

Eventually, it all started making sense to me and I had so much fun building and figuring out how to do what I wanted.

That was when I started trying to recreate real-life floor plans in the game and quickly discovered what a puzzle that could be.

I was awed by the tremendous talent in the community - both ts2 and ts3 - the builders, the tutorial writers, the forum managers, the techie types that could answer everything AND create amazing utility programs to help all of us play with our games and Sims.

Then the real world set in for several years where I went back to college, got my degree, started a Master's and then my old military injury decided it was time to pay me a permanent visit...

...life got really, really real...

...really, really fast.


Fast forward several years of intense physical therapy and I found myself with a whole lot of time on my hands. I read, watched a lot of movies, and talked to a lot of people on the internet and phone in between doctors' visits and surgeries.

As everything settled out, I decided to start building again and this was just about the time that The Sims 4 was being released.

I was really excited about it as I had gotten tired of the constant battle with ts3, the incredibly huge amount of cc I wanted in my game, and an aging computer system.  f

I refound my love of both cc and building in no time, well after a few adjustments on my part! lol  :wohoo:


At first, I was unhappy with the differences...   ohno

...but, differences were to be expected and I absolutely adored how stable ts4 was - seemingly no matter how much cc I managed to get into my Mods folder!  thlol


Now, a bit over 3 years later, I spend most of my time doing something related to Sims... collecting and organizing new cc or searching out old and difficult to find cc or building homes for fun, contests & challenges, or as gifts back to the community that has embraced the love of the game as I have  :buddy:

I had spent many years doing my thing alone - I'd search out cc, sign up for accounts on sites all over the world, click a heart or a thank you and keep on moving.

It wasn't until I became inspired by a contest happening on Bloom/CherryBlossomSims in 2015 that I actually got fully connected with other Simmers.

Bloom has welcomed me with open arms and all the wonderful people who participate in this site have become not just friends, but family to me  thau

I was asked to be the Tech Guru awhile back - I think mainly because I was running around answering questions people had - whether they actually asked them or not
oops   valentine1f


I love to give back what has been given to me - kindness, support, love, and most of all time. I have a lot of it even if it doesn't always feel that way  crazyspin


Thank you to everyone who was here a long time when I first came around...  :hypnos:

Thank you to everyone who has stayed a part of our sometimes irascible community  summerB4

~~~> we really are a family  pillowfight  

~~~> one united all over the world by a game  theworld

Thank you to everyone who comes in after me - you are beginning a wonderful journey  summerB9


hugss  Suzanne


~~~~~~~

As for a TOU - You are free to do whatever you would like with my builds.

Except claim them as your own or put them behind paysites.

That means that you are free to use them as they are or renovate them to your heart's content  bighugs2


cherry  cherry  cherry  Please keep in mind, though, I use a lot cc and I work really, really diligently to follow the Creators' TOU's.   cherry  cherry  cherry


That means that the cc is not mine.


cherry  If I am able to include cc based on a Creator's TOU, I will. I will still link back to their site.

cherry  If a Creator does not allow inclusion, then I will also provide you with a direct link to the cc item/set I've used.

cherry  You will not have to run around trying to find things that are a part of my builds  summerB6

cherry  As there are several wonderful creators on this site who have all said that I may include their cc in my builds.

I will & I will let you know who provided what I use    thau   grouphug   :thy:

If you ever have a question or comment, please feel free to let me know. I will always do my best to answer or respond as soon as possible.  HappyDay



~~~~~~~

If I've forgotten something, please let me know, lol, and I'll take care of it  :rose2:

...and thank you for reading all the way to the end!  :rofl301:

Yes, i read it through to the end. It was like reading a book in the sense that I couldn't stop reading. In Sams words, it was humbling to read such a journey.
Thank you for being here. rock

Suzanne, I am super excited to have you around as a resident artist.
You have worked so hard in the past on not only your houses, but also on the forum helping our members with all kinds of technicalities.
You deserve your "spot", I am looking forward to see your new houses, and do hope that you will also expand your gracious abilities, and try to recolor this year.
I just know you are going to be amazing at it!

Yes, with this I welcome you to the "inner circle", :bigHugs: :bigsmile:

Thank you, Mimi :D

My portfolio has not been updated in quite awhile - not typical for me, lol...

...I have been building, though - like crazy!

...unfortunately, my laptop meltdown happened at the wrong time during a contest.

...although come to think of it, I don't think there is ever a good time for a computer malfunction! :rofl301:

I'm working on a build for my first as a Resident Designer right now and I still have several others to get back to, heheheheheh giggle

I look forward to being part of this team with you and all of our other spectacular creators - Good times ahead :D <3

You are Loved! :amour2:
