Jeff left MATY because Brynne talked him into it by lying about a bunch of stuff. This is well known.


Sorry, I hadn't been following this nonsense but, huh? Make shit up much? I left MATY because I was tired of your little clique's asshattery and Jase made an offer. End of story.

:cele1:  So good to see you twojeffs!!

I know I'm really late to this, but:

@TJ: Thank you very much for all the work and time you put into your mods (especially ACR  :love:). I have many of them in my game and I don't want to miss them.
It is sad to read, you move on, but I understand. Things change. My best wishes for your new destination/s.

@AH: Your mods have a permanent home in my game too. Thank you very much. I wish you all the best in all your future ventures.


I am glad Simbology will remain. Where else would I ask questions? You all are so kind and helpful. Thank you very much all of you.

People? I think most are those annoying spambots. Someone should shoot them... :uzi: And then write a script that will only attack those people who make those spambots.

We can always turn on Capcha to stop the spambots.  Most of them do seem to be some variety of "real people" who might possibly get the message "Don't spam here!" if pounded into their heads.

Since this is my 1st post (long time lurker who only made an account last year), I wanted to express my gratitude to all of the past and current moderators and mod creators for their hard work in maintaining this forum. It's refreshing to come here and see this community pull together to keep this site available for everyone.

Thank you from someone who keeps to the shadows.

Well I had no idea about all this stuff. The times I was at this site seemed to have been before and after the change over, so I never noticed it was down. This is both sad news and good news. Thank you TJ for all you have given freely of your time and energy. Thank you also to everyone else that took over so that Simbology didn't join the ranks of so many others that have faded out of existence.

No, I've never really left, rather just been lurking here and at CT (now TFM's NSA) mostly. I've been flipping back and forth between playing  TS2 and TS3. I know, I broke my own promise not to play TS3 but in my own defense I did wait for about a year, long enough for all the modders to fix the wonky stuff <winks>.

If you download enough custom sliders, you can make a Sim that doesn't look like a sibling to every other Sim....  I'm not sure which is the "magic slider" tho.

Well, maybe, if I knew how to find that slider (something that really wasn't needed in TS2) I just possibly might consider loading TS3!  However, with all the other finicky stuff you need to do just to get the game to play and allow you to mod it a bit, I think that time may not be just yet!

I don't think it matters, really.  With three, the base game updates with every EP in a way.  Like, Generations added memories, so people without generations got memories in a base game update.  Late Nite added a boob slider (that sounds kind of dirty, doesn't it?) And it got added to the base game in an update, too, for people without Late Nite.  So, I think the base game has been updated to handle mods the same way as later EPs and SPs.  Those mods have to be compatible with the base game, though.  Just like 2.

I don't really play 3 all that often, so I'm not 100% sure, but I've got a pretty good idea that it works like that.

That sounds right dark_author. I don't have Generations, but do have the base game patch, and I still get messages about my teens having mood swings.

Heyas BO, good to see all you familiar faces .... err avatars/screen names.  :thumb:

The sliders help tremendously and I highly recommend them. They definitely help to reduce the pudding factor.

Dark is correct regarding the patches. When mods are updated they are patch-based (if that makes sense).
Now, a question of etiquette - as I pass, do I give you the ass or the crotch?

The patch is available through the launcher or manual downloads regardless if you have the EP or not. 1.33 is available to me through the launcher or manual downloads even though I don't have Showtime, but I haven't clicked on the button for the launcher to start the download process of 1.33 or downloaded the manual patch. I'm staying with 1.31 until I have to go to a different patch.

Nope, all you have to do is install the mesh. Nothing extra is needed.

As for mods compatibility and patches, it's much less complicated than TS2. Whenever a patch is released you can install it, even if you only have the base game. A responsible modder checks their mods for compatibility and updates them if necessary. All that matters is that the mod is compatible with the patch level of your base game. The EPs/SPs you have (if any) are irrelevant.  :smile:

If you decide to give it a whirl, we'll be happy to help you over at the Asylum.  :cheese:
