Hello to all my dear friends, lovers and everyone else. I am happy to announce that I have finally made my very first video for The Sims 4 showcasing my Performing Arts Academy build that I made a while back. With not having made videos of any kind in years I have forgotten just now daunting the whole process is. The good thing though that making videos for The Sims is a heck of a lot easier than the scrapbooking tutorials I used to do. For those I would type up a script and memorize it because if you mess up your pretty much done as for the fact that you simply can’t redo it for the simple fact that scrapbooking supplies are far from cheap!!!
So, without further ado the very video I have been twitting about all weekend!!! Feel free to watch it on your platform of choice!!!
Many hugs and blessings,
Although the general idea for the Twitch premier is for me to attend as well, but unfortunately, I will not be attending. I am currently going through a TMJ flare up and I really do not want to try and be all nice and happy when I am in pain. The pain comes and goes throughout the day and there just isn’t any way to know for sure if or when it will be manageable. So, for the meantime, I will not be doing any official live events for the time being.
The decision to so has been in the works for a while now. When I was creating my Origin ID for The Sims 4 gallery, I couldn't use PsychoSim and went with PsychoSim99 as that year did hold some very strong significant meaning to it for various reasons. It no longer holds a positive meaning and seeing how I am in the process of turning my life around I decided to change my Origin user ID to something is more positive and better represent me instead of someone else. I chose PsychoSimXX with the XX representing hugs in way to express peace, love and acceptance. For anyone who has had the opportunity to know on even the slightest personal level can see that I am firm believer is love and peace, that I accept people for who they are and not what they are. So, XX for use of the meaning of Hugs because I am a hugger. Well that and the fact that everything else that would better display the meaning was already taken or just looked funny…lol
During the month of March, I will be making some much needed changes to the Psycho Sim website. I’m also really trying to work on my confidence level to do what all I want to do with the site. Each time I get gumption to try, I hear the words of my mother and it sets me back. I am getting better on that though.
One of the changes to site is that I am no longer using adfly to help pay for frees associated with running a website. I tested it out and didn’t like it. There wasn’t a way for me to monitor ads used or a way to guarantee that the ad links wouldn’t produce a virus. So, I have moved my files over to Sims File Share, linked the few current downloads using those links. For advertising I will be using links in which I have pre-exciting affiliation with through previous sources.
I will also be linking my Patreon account to help pay for the Psycho Sim website. Currently I am undecided on how I want to run Patreon, so I do not have any rewards tiers at this time but there will be some once I have decided for certain of how I want to do them. One thing is for certain, I do know that I will offering early access to content I have created. I’m kind of toying with the idea of offering Patreon only content but I must be certain that I will have the time to be able to release monthly content for that tier as well as my site. Seeing how all current custom content is still in the working stags, I a little bit to decide on what exactly I want to do. So, for right now, I have a couple pose as a welcome gift.
Another thing I am working on getting started is doing showcase videos for builds. For new builds and videos showcasing new builds will be available for early access on Patreon. I will be doing showcase videos on my older builds that will be available for immediate access upon uploading.
Newly added are three new pose packs for download!!! I had a lot of fun making these and really enjoy learning how to make them!!! I know they are not the best out there but hey, I'm getting better!!!
Hope you enjoy and as always happy simming!!!
The tech just left and I know have my internet up and running!!! Man that was grueling!!! I am about to update my game and see if I have any broken mods, do in game testing and make the appropriate adjustments. My goal is to have it all done and uploaded before Friday. If not them it will be over the weekend. Friday is my birthday and the only work I am doing that day is my day job…LOL Well that and the new EP comes out on Friday, we will all be too busy playing with sim fur babies! (c:
I will be going on very brief hiatus for very positive reasons. My friend has been helping me get into a new place that is all my own. We found on and I will be moving in next week. So, I have been busy getting things packed and ready for the move. My official move in date is the first but I can start moving things in now!!! I will have to go in and do a deep clean because their clean isn’t my clean. After 22 years working in healthcare and OCD, my standard of clean is much higher then what they call clean. So, on Monday and Tuesday, I will be doing some serious cleaning before I move in on the first. I won’t have internet until the following week after I move in. just not sure as to what day yet because I don’t know what my schedule is yet for that week.
I will more than likely still be getting everything all unpacked and organized by then. So in the mean time say hello to my new furry friend. I’m not exactly sure what to name him just yet. My 11 year old niece wants me to call him Carmel because his older sister’s name is PB which is short for peanut butter and his older brother is called Chocolate. My friend and I think he kind looks like Old Dan from Where the Red Fern Grows. Clearly this little guy isn’t nothing close to the breed of Old Dan…LOL
I have a few different poses that I have been working and plan to get the final touches to them done this week to upload for next month! (c:
I did fall behind with what I had planned to have done for last week but I will be working hard to get it all done and caught up.
I starting work on character analysis, backstories and biographies for main characters of the story I am putting together. It is just one of the steps in the process of putting all of the short stories I have written regarding my beloved sim Shinya!!
Tonight I am doing the character analysis of the main and supporting characters that are to be in the first part of the story!!! I wont be making any of it public until I have published the first chapter. LOL I am even keeping the name of the Simlit secret for the moment! (c:
Sure did take me long enough, didn’t it! So now that is all out of the way, I can dive into and get everything that this site is for!!! I have been working a number of different poses and polishing up a few others that just did set well with me. As well as getting screenshots for them. That is the easy part though…LOL
I did write up some game tips. They are nothing fancy or breathtaking, but seeing how I am often asked them in the forums, I thought it would be handy to that provide a link instead of typing it out countless times. You can check them out under “Game Tips & Tricks”
Much love and Blessings
