Hey, look! A journal! I didn't even know we could have a journal here, until StephSim poked me to look at hers. *laughs* Yes, I'm slow. Shut up.
Anyway, I don't even know if anyone will even see this, but I'm thinking that maybe I'll use it to let y'all know where I stand on various projects that I'm working on. If nothing else, it'll allow half-senile me to remember what the heck I'm supposed to be doing.
So to that end, here's some updates, if anyone cares:
1) I'm currently having fun with uploading lots, but I swear I'll stop soon and get back to my other stuff. It's just the latest shiny that's grabbed me, is all.
2) On a similar note, I have finally downloaded and installed the AnyGameStarter because I wanted to try my hand at building base game lots. I had a bit of hiccup in getting it running because, way back when, I originally downloaded Deluxe directly from EA, so I didn't have a disk, which AGS wanted me to have. But I solved that problem via *ahem* slightly shady means, and I'm up and running. In fact, I built a lot last night and just uploaded it today. It's base game and -- get this! -- NO CC! Don't all have heart attacks now. I think it looks pretty good, considering; we'll see what y'all think when it slips its way past the mods.
3) Regarding my plaster collections, by "popular demand," I have decided to bump the greens and blues up in the queue, all the way to the top. (It's not like it took much arm-twisting; the greens are my favorites.
) I'm going to do the greens, then the blues, then go back and finish the oranges and do the yellows and purples. So look for the first of them, the bright greens...uh, hopefully by the end of this week. At least, I'll upload them by then, and then it'll take however long it takes to go through the mod queue.
4) Stuff in the works:
The Basic Bathrooms Megaset
: Basically, I'm tired of not having matching, plain, basic stuff for bathrooms. So, I made/am making stuff all in a uniform palette of 17 colors. Everything from towels to walls to toilets. Some of the walls/floors have already been included in some of the lots I've uploaded recently. Consider it a preview, I guess. I've only got a few more pieces to finish and some dirty states to make, and then it'll be DONE!
Maxis Matching Walls and Floors:
You know how Maxis will make a nice-looking tile floor...and that's it. Just a floor with nothing that matches it, so it's pretty darn useless? Yeah, that pisses me off, too. So, I'm fixing it, taking some Maxis tiles and making matching walls as well as matching floors and other walls for Maxis walls. In other words: Watch me steal Maxis's textures and mangle them!
Prettier Maxis Doors and Windows
: You know how Maxis's doors and windows can be nice but the colors suck and don't match anything? Yeah, fixing that, too, using the 20-color palette that I made floors and modular stairs and fences and columns in. I'm also making some white versions for those that I don't already have white versions of. Now if only more Maxis windows had separately colorable interior and exterior finishes...*sigh*
So there we are. And hey! If anyone reads this, give me a shout so that I know if anyone's reading.
