I didn’t feel like decorating my current project, so I built yet another. A little bit of everything - art deco, modern, victorian…actually I just wanted to use that 3t2 window set <3 <3 <3

…I’m just going to move into mechbutterfly’s game. *__*

lisag45, I’ve gotten this question a couple of times, so I’m going to use yours to answer all of them, I hope that’s okay! :3

I didn’t use a tutorial, but I tried a lot of things until I found the things that worked :) Lengthy explanation behind the cut, beware :

Saving for later when I install clean templates! :)

A message from whispered-rumor


1, 21, 28! :D

1. Meaning behind your URL:

Fi is a nickname I picked up in college - then I just took the phrase semper fi and made it “simper fi”, which was my attempt at being clever and having a Sims-related username. :P It’s pronounced differently though - I’m fairly certain semper fi is pronounced as “fye,” while my nickname is said like “fee.” 

21. A random fact:

I absolutely love wearing heels. I don’t wear them to work (standing in heels for thirteen hours is a recipe for disaster), but I will wear them nearly everywhere else. (I kind of became known for it in college. :P) I know it’s terrible for my feet, but I can’t help it. Also I tend to feel clumsy in most flat shoes. :(

28. Favorite book:

Does the entire Harry Potter series count? :P Well, if I had to pick one of them, I’d say Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. I also love Lord of the Rings - which is technically one book in three volumes, so it counts! :D

I guess I&#8217;ll throw this out there while I finish setting up my game? :)

UC is finally downloaded and installed!

And there was much rejoicing.

Now, time to install clean templates and defaults, plop downloads folder back in, and download some new neighborhood terrains. :D

Is this for Ultimate? Why on earth is it taking so long?! :O

Yes, I wish I knew! I only did it because I was planning to do a reinstall anyway, and I figured I may as well redeem my download and get the last stuff pack I was missing. What a hassle. :( 

Well, it is 12 GB :/

Yeah, I was definitely expecting it to take awhile but certainly not this long. Waaaah D: 

I wonder if its origin? I have average connection and very average computer, and it only took 45 minutes.

Possibly? I haven’t had any experience with Origin until today, so I’m not sure if this is a common issue. My computer itself runs like a dream and plays the game wonderfully - my internet connection is the most probable culprit. *shakes fist*

UC issues aside, I have a feeling I’m going to be making some unpleasant phone calls to my internet service provider in the coming days…

I&#8217;ve been doing lots of text-post blathering lately, so have a cafe outtake as a peace offering until I get my game back up and running. D:

i honestly don't believe it's an internet problem. i think it's the size. i have really great internet connection, a new computer with plenty of space, good drivers and pretty much capable to play the sims and it took so long. i started downloading it and i come back to check a half and hour later and it was at 24%. i got so inpatient that i gave up. i have all the eps anyway, I was just in it for the ikea sp. my boyfriend is downloading UC and he's on his fourth hour at 56%.

I’m sure the size has a lot to do with it, but I really do have a terrible internet connection in my area. :( It took me three attempts just to get Origin to download. Lately, a lot of my downloads - even small CC .rar files - freeze halfway through and often need to be restarted. My UC download has been in progress for six hours and I’m only at 27%. :( I’m working all day tomorrow anyway, so I’m just going to let it run and hopefully it will be done by the time I get home. D:
