Apologies for the jagged lines. Stupid mac graphics card doesn’t allow for anti-aliasing, so no smooth edges.
A few shots of the Broke’s made over trailer.
All this talk of TS4 has spun me into a regression. Or rather, I had a hankering for sims on my Air, which could never play TS3. The thing is, I haven’t played TS2 since TS3 came out. So any TS2ers out there, what are the cc must haves these days? Which defaults tickle your fancy? halp, I are lost.
Come on guys, this is obviously fake. You can tell because the background is recycled art from Sim City Societies. Plus I’m pretty sure the EA logo is off. Sorry to burst the bubble.
Vi somehow persuaded Zhan Su to visit her at her makeshift campsite. Our heroine realised she’d have to do a lot to convince someone to give up their life, family and possessions to join her on a windswept dot in the ocean. She pulled out all the stops, wooing Zhan with cat videos and bunches of flowers pulled from her arse. What a lucky lad.
She may not have much, but Viola wouldn’t be seen dead in anything less than hipster chic. Silly girl: maybe, I dunno, a toilet would be more useful than a designer tent.
I’ve been spending a lot of time building recently, and no time playing, so I thought I’d try a simple gameplay challenge for a change. Viola Livingstone is the unlucky sim pitched up on a deserted island. I decided to make her insane, because I mean, you have to be a bit mad to want to live in total isolation, right?
Running away doesn’t help the problem, it actually makes it worse.
Yeah, but there’s a difference between being a jerk, and being an anonymous jerk. In most communities ( forums I guess would be a good example ), you act like an asshole, you got banned like an asshole,…
I totally agree with you, all im saying is, we have the control here, if we quit publishing the hate, it would eventually stop. They get no validation from deleted messages.
Yeah, but unfortunately you’re still seeing it, and trust me, turning off anon doesn’t help anymore either.
Stone wall, Trojan horse kinda thing comes to mind.
Luckily I have my husband to act out my frustrations to if need be, he reassures me, I move on, but some people are not so lucky to have a support system like this in RL, let alone online.
It’s true, I think us older simmer’s take for granted that we have a RL support system, where the younger ones really don’t have that, I think a lot of the younger ones are the ones that have it the hardest in the community. Because when your young (and trust me I know I’m young at only 29 almost 30) everything seems worse than it really is and it gets blown out of the water. Emotions run super high when your young, and I think on all of our parts we need to accept that maybe what works for one person doesn’t work for another. But I agree that not posting the hate and just deleting it is the best course of action. Since that is what I have done, and I rarely get any hate, course I’m not that active either so what are you going to do? But with all this said, just so everyone knows if you decide not to post the hate but can’t let it go and need to talk to someone I am here for you, the inbox is always open, and I have rather broad shoulders so they are pretty comfy to cry on :) (so I’ve been told) and not judging from me either.
I promise this is my last little bit on this, because I am not looking to draw it out any further on my end.
I am not in anyway judging people for their decisions, everyone has to handle their situation their own way and there is nothing wrong with that. All I’m trying to do is cultivate a new attitude toward the situation. Yes maybe at first the messages come and you have to delete them, but EVENTUALLY they would stop. If you think I haven’t been through it, than you’re mistaken, but as almost every response I’ve ever seen to an anon is “I don’t care what you say” let’s prove it by ignoring them. They do eventually give up, because you aren’t fun to play with…
Idk. Some people get so caught up with the anonymous hate… that it ends up affecting other people. If you know you can’t handle anon hate… then don’t keep it on? If you’re gonna complain about it… then why keep it on? If you’re going to randomly decide to leave the community… once again… why keep it on? It’s simple. Unless you’re someone who can bear with it… you shouldn’t punish yourself with haters. Haters are everywhere… you are going to experience it at some point. You can’t just run away from it… or use it as an excuse for RL problems… because that’s not right. This is my opinion at how I look at it… you can go ahead and judge me and fight back… but I’m not gonna care. I believe in my opinions.
I’ve been on tumblr for what, a year and a half, maybe two years? Do you know how much Anon hate I’ve received in that time? None. Why is that? It’s not because I’m some paragon of untouchable virtue - far from it! The reason I’ve never seen anon hate in my inbox is simple: I just don’t turn anon on. Never have, doubt I ever will. It just isn’t worth the agro.
