And my game crashes again…Somehow adding new CC just kills my game.

I’m getting so tired of this shit.

I’m sorry, sometimes it’s frustrating how much effort we have to put just to make the game work. I’ve been seeing your posts and it seems you might have reached the cc limit. Yes, there is such a thing, somehow the game can only handle a certain amount of content that has object data. That is object meshes, custom careers and majors, custom food, fences, etc. Recolors, walls, floors, terrain paints and Bodyshop cc don’t count toward the limit, so you can have as many of those as you want (as far as I know). Also, larger neighborhoods (with many lots and sims) seem to make the game crash more easily.

I don’t know exactly what causes it but it took me like a year to conclude that my game was crashing because of the limit and not because of any conflicts. I suggest you test to see if this is the case.

The quickest way I found to know if I have reached the limit is loading a lot and clicking on the stairs catalog. I recommend using a large neighborhood for testing (like a megahood). If it crashes when you do that, try removing some objects with large footprints (move them somewhere outside your downloads folder), since those contain more object data files.

The only way to fix this I know is keeping your object count under the limit, unfortunately. Upgrading your computer doesn’t necessarily fix it, I’ve done that and it didn’t work. I really hope it is just a GUID conflict, but maybe you could test to see if the cc limit is the problem, if you have enough time.

Sorry for the long post.

I am SO upset about having just bought 2 monitors from ASUS… I’m contemplating returning them.

This is disgusting, not only to women in general (feminism anyone?) but to simmers.  We spend more money per-year on Sims games than non-simmers do on other types.  Not to mention how we pimp out our computers MORE than other gamers.
I AM JUST REALLY ANNOYED RIGHT NOW!!!

TIPTOESIMS, I LOVE YOU

the first thing i noticed was totally the fact that the ‘hardcore gamer’ was male and the ‘casual gamer’ was female. and the fact woman and casual gamers and simmers are belittled by the last bullet point. ouch. i’m embarrassed to be using an asus screen right now.

Yo Asus, go fuck yourselves. I’m embarrassed for you right now. Simmers regularly spend small fortunes upgrading their PCs and purchasing expansions and DLC. And we can easily spend a whole weekend playing a Sims game. And we may not play on LAN (who the hell wants to share their Godlike powers to someone else? Yuck) but we enjoy watching the shit out of Livestreams. Not only that, but we can rip that code apart and get more out of the game than EA ever thought possible. 
Plus there’s nothing wrong with casual gaming either. Casual games are fun. That’s why so many people play them. And for many people, especially women, they’re a stepping stone into more serious games that we’ve put off buying precisely because of the anti-woman attitude surrounding the whole industry that you’ve just gone and demonstrated here.

The only fucking reason The Sims series is labelled as “for casuals” is because a majority of its players are women. Fuck you, gaming industry, and fuck you ASUS. I’ve probably played computer games since before whatever young hip dickhead came up with this cutsey little thing was even born, and I’m not that old.

Well fuck you too Asus, I’m ashamed to have a tablet made by you. I’ve updated my PC TWICE just so I could play the Sims 2 better and have nicer graphics. I spent my entire tip jar (400 Euro’s) on new parts the first time I updated it and that was huge for me. And yeah, my WASD keys might be not faded but I’ve actually BURNED an entire videocard playing the fucking Sims 2. And let me tell you something, you don’t burn videocards by playing casually, assholes.
I’ve been playing TS2 for YEARS. In game hours I’m probably more “pro” or “hardcore” than most of those fucking male gamers you’re so fixated on. But I guess games like TS2 aren’t ~real games~ because everyone knows, in true games you shoot people, teabag them, and tell other players you fucked their mom last night. I would rather play a hundred casual games and Sims games by myself than go to a fucking LAN-party playing crappy shooters.
And yeah, my longest hours playing have probably been TS2. I’ve spent entire weekends during high school and university playing TS2. When I was unemployed I would sometimes play an entire week. Or is that still too casual for you Asus? Just take a look at my Tumblr and see for yourself; I don’t play this shit casually. My start-up time is around 1h and 40 minutes. I must be fucking dedicated to wait that long to play my game, and guess what? I fucking am.
So don’t you dare patronise me Asus, and don’t you dare patronise other female and/or casual gamers. You only dislike us because you’re just too dumb to figure out how to get our fucking money. 

Good people. Maybe you should write them directly? Instead of throwing insults into tumblr’s wind where they definitely won’t even see it, let alone understand you? Contact them. Explain why you’re upset, and demand they take this ad down. Be more proactive and less passive-aggressive.

Anonymous asked:

Could you explain the whole "i don’t really have depression, i’m actually just a lazy piece of shit" = you've got depression, thing? It rang a bell for me and I'd like to know what you meant. Thanks :)

one of the most insidious things about depression is it doesn’t ‘feel’ like depression. even when you have it, you know you have it, you’ve been diagnosed—you still find yourself thinking, no, nope, this isn’t it, can’t be. it’s like the mental illness equivalent of that knight in monty python that keeps going ‘it’s a flesh wound! i’m fine, really! this is just a scratch, i’ll be up in a moment!’ even after all his limbs have been hacked off and he’s lying there helpless.

one of the most common narratives around it is that no one realizes they have depression until they start checking off what they consider to be normal aspects of their lives—and personal character flaws— against the checklist for depression symptoms. really key symptoms include:

  1. lack of motivation
  2. constant tiredness, even exhaustion
  3. finding no pleasure or satisfaction in activities they used to like, or that they know should feel good
  4. not seeing the point of doing anything
  5. increased and even unmanageable anxiety and fearfulness

any one of these symptoms drains away your ability to do work, cope with setbacks, overcome difficulties, or stop procrastinating. multiple symptoms create a pretty perfect storm of intertia and anxious self-loathing. you stop doing anything because it’s hard to get going, unpleasant while you’re at it, and afterwards there’s no reward. why bother, right? and when you’re always tired you get conservative of what little energy you can manage, and when you only feel emotions on the ‘empty to miserable’ spectrum you get really aversive to making mistakes. the whole mess very quickly and very insidiously loads every single thing in your life with toxic emotional baggage.   

and then someone says to you— or you say to yourself, ‘stop being lazy’. and that haunts you forever. because you’re lazy! the work is so easy. everyone else does it. everyone but you, you lazy asshole, lying around all day not doing this totally easy thing that you should be able to but aren’t. you don’t have depression! of course not. mental illness is for victims, is for blameless innocent people who can’t be blamed for being so understandably sick. but you can be blamed. you have a character flaw, and it’s getting worse by the minute. 

and that is how people who have been diagnosed, who have been medicated, who have been through therapy, can still spend all day hiding in bed and chewing themselves up over their failure to just somehow magically be a good, healthy, useful person, instead of treating themselves to a sick day and saying ‘yup! it’s depression. i need to be kind to myself.’

Sorry for the non-sims post on my simblr, but this is really really good and I want lots of people to see it, plus we simmers seem to be rather prone to being crazy so perhaps some of you guys will be interested. :)

I want to add to this. When you have depression it’s not a rational illness. It’s not like you can rationally say ‘Oh I’ve got depression therefore this, this and that’. It hits you in your emotions - often long before you recognise that it has. It can go on for weeks eroding your self-esteem, fun, alertness, cognition before you recognise what’s happening. By that time, being kind to yourself it’s already too late. You don’t have the emotional energy for it, so like an insomniac, you hit yourself with the equivalent of caffeine to keep you up to your tasks during the day - because self-abuse does give you impetus to move. However… it’s taking water from a drying well, and then when the well is empty there’s nothing left. You’re a husk that depression inhabits. If you’re medicated or you’re familiar with it, you can train yourself or be trained to recognise the signs and go ‘Yup this is depression’. But if you’re a first-timer it go for years until some kind soul actually points it out to you. So if you’re finding things are getting less fun, you’d prefer to stay at home alone than go out (and you’re an extrovert) - then go to a gp.

Other signs of depression:

1. Sleeping disturbance - under or over sleeping.

2. Weight disturbance - losing/gaining weight… when you haven’t been trying to do either.

3. Noise sensitivity - Loud noises startle you.

4. Cognition disturbance - loss of concentration, thinking through fog

5. Emotional Disturbance - short temper, anxious, numbness, sadness, over-reaction to emotional events.

According to the professionals, any 3 of these signify depression - so you don’t even have to feel sad to have depression. Sadness = depression is the biggest myth in the mental health world.

So if your friend isn’t enjoying life the way they used to, and have no good reason why - get them to a gp. You’ll spot it before they do.

BTW - I’ve had depression since I was in my teens and am now 52 - so this is coming from MY experience. It may be different to others, but I suspect that it’s not that different. :)
