Collections of my Sims screenshots - hope you like them :@)

So, I plopped down that doofus-looking Mark (after I changed his hairstyle and made him single… but I forgot to remove his ring xp) into my Sims 4 game for Oinky to play with… Because EA’s pre-mades that I’ve seen so far all looks… Bleh!… But then again, it’s maybe because of my video card being condemned as not good enough for Sims 4. :@p

And so, that’s Oinky visiting Mark’s house… It seems in Sims 4 your Sim doesn’t have to wait until being invited inside to be able to get inside another Sim’s house - just knock on the door and then casually walk in, as if it’s your Sim’s own house.

I wasn’t planning for them to get romantic - if possible - immediately… However, I don’t know why; but just chatted a bit and suddenly Mark was already in flirty mood… He’s not a romantic Sim (at least that I’m aware of); his aspiration is music. Must be because of the garbage, urinal, and no flies topics that make him in the mood for love… (゜▽゜;) While you can see Oinky’s mood was normal happy mood all the time… And it was Mark who suddenly, out of the blue, blew a kiss… which Oinky accepted… and that makes their status become romantic interests… (°∀°)b

Oh, wow! So fast?! O.O Seeing from gameplay videos, I got impression that it’s quite tough to do romantic interactions in Sims 4 - successfully, at least… But then again, I guess it depends on the Sims’ traits… Which I think Oinky and Mark’s traits are not that compatible, actually… So, I have no idea how come things turn out like that… *makes me wonder what would happen when I play my Amagiri and Saitou Sims*

And I think the snuggle animation is quite weird… xp But I guess I’ll need to get used to it… I think I’ve gotten quite used to the camera control now, so yeah, it makes playing Sims 4 a bit enjoyable for me now. :@)

I’ve also found where to turn aging and free will off. It’s in the game options, under gameplay tab… However, somehow I think the aging off doesn’t stick for me… Or is it maybe that I need to set it to off for each household…? I’ll need to do some experiments for it in order to find the answer, I guess. And so far, I still keep the free will on, because it hasn’t gotten on my nerves yet.

Amagiri and (neko) Hajime at Summer festival (?) ^^;

Yeahh, right…  I guess that must be the lamest and most poorly-made festival lot ever known to the Simming world! x_x Well, it’s not really a functional festival lot, actually… Just something I made very quickly for the photo shoot - which also turned out quite lame… (●ฅ́дฅ̀●)

And yes, I do plan to put my Amagiri and Hajime Sims in Sims 4 - I’ve made the Sims 4 version of them some time back… Let’s see if their love will be able to stand the test of silly emotions and free will… (I’m quite worried, but at the same time, also very curious to see the result! xp I know I may regret the decision, but even so…)

misaki0218さん, 金魚ふくろをありがとうございました! (´▽`ʃƪ)♡

I’m so sorry I fail to use it well in my pictures… I’m really bad at posing my Sims… (๑•́ ω •̀๑)

Explicit pictures can be viewed at my YAOI NSFW tumblr. ♡ฅ(ᐤˊ꒳ฅˋᐤ♪)

Watching stars is so typical and ordinary… No, we are watching flower petals falling from the sky! d(◕‿◕✿)

Oinky is childish, so she can play with the stuffed toy… And she also has started writing her first book; which is a children’s book, of course. :@p

Yeahh, well, I’ve finished furnishing her house… Since building one is quite troublesome with the camera angle that I’m still not quite used to, I decided to just use one of EA’s premades and decorated it… The result is; the house looks quite tacky… (^___-)b

And since for me medium or high graphic settings make no difference; as in my Sim still looks horrible no matter what, I just set it to medium… Plus, my video card is considered as so-so for Sims 4, anyway… (And I don’t think many people will care to see Sims 4 pictures) So, might as well no need to force it… I don’t want to abuse my video card; I’d like it to last as long as possible and can still perform well for my Sims 2 and 3. :@)

OK… Some Sims 4 pictures… in both medium and high graphic settings… if you can tell which from which…

As far as I can tell, for me at least, the difference between medium and high graphic setting is only apparent for the objects and surrounding… The Sim itself looks BLEH! quality, no matter it’s medium or high graphic setting… Especially, of course if you zoom in on the Sim… If not, then I guess you’re OK. ^^;

I’d say, my Sims 2 Sims look even far far much much better when being looked at closely, compared to that…! Sims 4 graphic - for the Sims, especially - is NOT better and/or more superior than Sims 3! But then again, my NVIDIA is considered to be so-so by Sims 4, so maybe that’s the reason… (If the game really uses NVIDIA to begin with; I tried to assign using GeForce Experience console to see whether Sims 4 is supported or not… Seems not, because no matter how many times I check, it only lists Sims 3… Then I tried to assign NVIDIA to Sims 4 manually using the NVIDIA control panel… No idea if it works or not.)

The camera… Ugh… It really reminds me of Sims 3 N3DS… Sure, it’ll take some time for me to get used to it… But I think even if I do finally manage to get used to it, I probably will never be comfortable with it… Same with the UI…

I’m not sure whether typing ‘aging off’ on the cheat bar really works and freezes my Sim’s age or not… Seems like it; since there’s no complain about ‘unable to do the command’… I still haven’t figured out where to turn free will off, though…

Was thinking to build house, but then I’ve never been good using blueprint - don’t know why… It’d be somewhat easier if I can just get a view angle that’s comfortable - if not better - to my eyes… Which, again, of course this relates to the camera… If you think that Sims 2 camera is terrible, Sims 4 camera is worse… At least in my opinion; because I don’t really have anything to complain about Sims 2 camera - yes, it’s limited compared to Sims 3’s, but it still manages to give me comfortable view angles without hassles.

Oh, well, maybe later or tomorrow, I’ll have more positive opinion about Sims 4… Maybe if I somehow manage to give Oinky a house that’s suitable for her… And speaking of houses; I thought there’s a Freezer Bunny house in Sims 4…? I believed I saw it in one of EA’s gameplay videos… Scully, I couldn’t find it anywhere! Freezer Bunny house? Don’t have! Guess I got tricked by EA yet again… x_x;

And so, to sum it all up… My first impression of playing a bit of Sims 4… TOTALLY NOT WORTH IT! (>.<)

But like I’ve mentioned; maybe after some time getting used to it, I may change my opinion… Maybe… Or not… Only time will tell… I dare EA to surprise me… doubt it, though!

So, I uninstalled Supernatural… because I need a bit more free disk space, and well, I don’t use much stuff from that EP, anyway… However, I changed my fairy boy into human first before uninstalling Supernatural; that way, I’ll still have him in my game afterwards. Maybe I’ll find some nice accessory wings for him later. xp

(Lancelot the knight: “It’s raining flowers?!! Hmm… I wonder what kind of omen this is…”)

In one hour time, I should be able to launch and play my copy of Sims 4… Of course, provided if things go well… ^^;

And it seems that it’s said that my NVIDIA GT 740M is considered so-so for playing Sims 4… The exact wording is; can be used to play Sims 4 but not in higher quality. Yeah, right… My graphic setting for Sims 3 is all high and  very high… (And I even set very high settings too for Sims 4 CAS Demo!)… So, they’re saying that graphic quality for Sims 4 is far better and more superior than Sims 3… *snorts* Quite an absurd statement, if you ask me, and I find it hard to believe… Before I see it with my own eyes, I won’t buy that crap!

Thank you for your kind words! (´▽`ʃƪ)♡

I’ve always had some sort of issue(s) with Origin, actually… It’s just that it becomes more and more frequent lately after it’s being installed in this laptop. With my old, already-retired, laptop, I did ever have download resetting problem, but only once. Anyway, I’ve already known and said it so many times already that my old laptop - despite being older model - is far better than this new one in quite many ways.

And like I’ve mentioned several times at NRaas; for me, playing new game doesn’t mean I stop playing the old ones. There’s no such thing as ‘leave Sims 3 and move on to Sims 4’ for me. Having new game only means that I have new variety to play - which is good, because I get bored easily. But then again, I also tend to have my interest back quite as easily as I get bored. So, that’s why I still play Sims 2 despite having Sims 3… And I will still get back to Sims 3 even though also playing Sims 4. Each of these games has its own features that the others don’t have (Sims 2 with the awesome OFB and lots of Sims interactions, Sims 3 with open world, better graphic and CASt, Sims 4 with… err, well, what I can say for sure for now is the cowplant in Sims 4 is cuter! xp) So, having and playing all of them is really good to enrich my Simming experiences. :@)

And so… Finally! The newest crap from EA that’s called SIMS 4; after 1-time STUCK and countless RESETS,  has conceded defeat by letting me finish download it 100%…! \(^O^)/ Hail, Pippichan! ばんざい, ばんざい, ばんざい! 

And its current status is preloaded. (^___-)b

However, it’s actually too early to celebrate, since I shall see tomorrow night; whether that crap can be installed and played for real or not… Whether it really really has successfully and securely preloaded or not… Because with EA/Origin, you never know… From my past experiences, things can flip 180 in a blink of eye…

So, yeah, we shall see… Tomorrow night… :@

I guess it&#8217;s easier to just accept that some things are not meant to be; no matter how hard I try to achieve it. And what&#8217;s the use of going against the flow; it&#8217;s so damn tiring and I just end up being treated as an eyesore - if not a pain in the ass, and my certainly uninteresting, nor informative, posts are reduced to mere annoying spams. :@/
I&#8217;ve done everything I could think of to somehow, hopefully, fix the issue with the stupid Origin keeps resetting my download&#8230; I&#8217;ve changed the setting to the beta version, like someone back at EA forum suggested&#8230; I&#8217;ve even uninstalled and re-installed the damn thing, and still my crappy Sims 4 pre-load RESET without fail! (&gt;.&lt;) Like just now, it seemed that maybe today I was going to make it&#8230; Reached 92%&#8230; When it suddenly dropped again to 86%&#8230;! (⋆ˋ⑉̈ˊ)൭൭⁼³₌₃
It&#8217;s really much, much easier just to completely give up; click that damn X button to cancel the whole process and closes the stupid Origin and just forget about the whole crap. However, I guess I&#8217;m not pig-headed for no reason&#8230; I still refuse to admit my defeat&#8230;! NOT YET! Somehow&#8230; someway&#8230; I&#8217;m going to make that crap downloaded 100% for sure! No matter how long; how many hours and days it will take to get me to 100%&#8230; I&#8217;m not going to stop! 凸(⊙▂⊙✖ )
So, bring it on, EA/Origin! (ง •̀_•́)ง You can reset my download over and over again, and I&#8217;ll keep download it over and over again as well! Let&#8217;s see which will burn out first; my stubborness or EA/Origin&#8217;s crappiness/evilness! (๑•॒̀ ູ॒•́๑)
(Of course, even if I somehow can win this battle and finish the pre-load, there&#8217;s still no guarantee that I can successfully install and play the game later&#8230; But that&#8217;s another issue; right now, it&#8217;s the struggle to get to 100% for the damned pre-load!)

Just contemplating the suckness of life&#8230;. 3:8(
So, after somehow my Sims 4 pre-load managed to resume, after so long and painfully slow progress reaching 77%&#8230; Guess what the stupid Origin did!? Nope, it&#8217;s NOT stuck again this time; instead, it dares to RESET to 73%!! (&gt;.&lt;)
I give up! Paused the stupid pre-load immediately before it gets worse; as in dropping even farther down! x_x; I&#8217;ll see if tomorrow I get better luck with it&#8230; If tomorrow it&#8217;s the same RESETTING and/or STUCK all over again, I&#8217;ll just simply don&#8217;t care! EA can eat their own craps! I hope they enjoy the money they get from me so much that they get severe stomachache for 99 years!
