Thanks! I liked seeing how the cars and garages looked, not bad! I
noticed somebody was getting into the taxis and a car sitting in the
driveway. LOL I hate those taxis. I suppose the cars have me pretty
excited!

I'm wondering if our *custom* made rugs are going to work well... now
that there will be rugs. I like that round one.

Yeah, I guess she wasn't assigned to the car :-\

I don't think there will be much difference. But I expect to see lots
more cloned and recolored rugs :-D

Yeah, I probably will just delete my custom rugs. Actually, I never used
them that much.

Guardian, do you have a lot of custom downloads and how big is your
download folder? Just curious, since you play more than anybody else
that I know of. ;)

Hehe, believe it or not, in my downloads folder (until recently when I
deleted to pave way for NL) I only had a couple of hundred megabytes.
Mostly because custom objects and meshes kept bugging on me and
ruining my game, and I couldnt isolate the cause... :-\ I've decided
now to stick with the basics and just put into my game whatever I feel
the game lacks... like a good black brick wall, or walls to match this
and that, and recolors of scarce items like toilets :-)

I have quite a few walls and floors, but have been weeding them out
(using CleanInstaller) until I have only what I know I will need now. I
have a few recolors, but only a very few new meshes for objects. I
don't want to do without the upper kitchen cabinets, though. That and a
couple of really nice brass beds and all of the Maxis beds done as
twins. That's enough for me, really.

I say this through determined gritted teeth.

Smart thinking!! I think you've just talked me into doing that too. You
always seem to enjoy playing the game. I don't think I've really played
the game for the way it was made. I know we all have our own ways but
I'm saying I've spent most of my time downloading, unzipping & trying to
find what new stuff I put in, it's hard when you have hundreds of
different objects, walls, floors. LOL I'm so tired by the time I build a
house using my new stuff that I don't want to play. This is also the way
I played The Sims with all EP's. Nope, it's back to basics mostly with
hacks that I hope will work with Nightlife. I guess if I had to choose
between hacks and pretty new sets of furniture etc, I would choose
Hacks! They do so much for the game play. Besides, I'm beginning to
notice that the Sims could care less about having a fancy house. haha!!

Hehe, glad I could help. I kept making the same mistakes over and
over. Downloading too much stuff without thorough testing and asking
myself if it was really up to the level of quality I desired, and
really added something to the game. Now I play and go like "I wish
there was a totally black wall..." and so I go look for or request a
matching black wall, instead of downloading 30 blackish ones :-)

I'm basically an industrial simmer... I build build build, live live
live, and accumulate stuff... and then I do whatever feels like fun. I
have GREAT difficulty letting sims die though... because I feel that I
invest so much in them. Which is why I need such a behemoth of a
neighbourhood map :-)

I DO use lots of hacks though... but it's a pain in the butt to have
to recertify them for each EP... so I deleted them all. I'll go
hack-hunting again a couple of weeks after I get NL.

And you're totally right that sims dont really care LOL, I've got far
less picky with "getting stuff done right". I try to be creative but
some ideas and even entire houses must be reproduced because I have no
ambition to build quite THAT much hehe

So with Nightlife, I am starting at square 1... seems a lot of people
are :-)

It's proper Dutch accent, what we call Algemeen Beschaafd Nederlands
(General Civilised Dutch), which is comparable to Received Pronunciation
in England.

When I did my teaching placement in Italy (on Sicily) me and my
placement partner were contantly asked if we were German when we talked
in Dutch to each other.

That's amasing.

As I said before I have very little German, but I speak it with a 55 year
old East Berlin accent (well, that's what I have been told anyway). Which is
pretty good when you consider I'm 33 and have never been out of Australia
since I arrived at 6 months of age (and NOT from Germany). My mother, uncle,
Oma and Opa came over when my mother was seven. I can pick an Austrian
speaking German, but the Sims guy just floored me. It really did sound like
an English voice to me.

A lot of us had enough problems with Sims1 that starting from scratch seems
to be the only option with each new EP. I don't regret it though because I
always miss my starting characters. By the third generation or so, I'm
just not as invested in them, even though I have seen them grow up . I am
actually looking forward to seeing Cassandra screw up her life again,the
travails of the Curious clan, and Mama Hicks and Eldon from my recreated
Sims1. I love different furniture styles, if the Sims don't care, I hate
having every house with the same stuff and everyone with the same clothes
and hairstyle. It makes them seem to "1984-ish."

I can pick out a Dutchman when he's talking English, even if they're
really good (like the guy from the Amstel or Heineken ads in the UK who
also presents a Discovery Channel program). I'm usually very ashamed
when I hear Dutch politician speak English, not only their accent, but
their grammar is cr*p.

I usually speak with an accent (most people indeed think it's German). I
can speak English RP but I usually don't bother, especially since I've
noticed that in England when you speak with a foreign accent they treat
you much nicer than when you (try) to speak posh English!

He's whining about how boring normal sim life is, what with cooking
and cleaning and going to work, and how everything is so much better
now that you can go out and have fun. It's pretty stupid, actually :-)
And no, I didn't notice any particular accent.

I take it he's the typical male type who can't slow down long enough
to form a creative thought, and doesn't play games where he can't
destroy something :-)
