Quick Question

I'm doing an overhaul of my hair folder and I am trying to find a site which I think I saw. They were trying to build a database of links to pooked versions of various hair meshes. I apparently didn't bookmark it when I saw it, so now I'm going a little nuts.

So far, I've gone through 35 hairs and 31 of them need some sort of adjustment (Pooked recolors, too many greys, wrong grey, not binned, etc.). Of the remaining 4... one got tossed. There's still 80+ left in that one folder to go through and that's just the male hair.

This may be a bigger project than I expected.

BANDwagon..

1 - Go to wikipedia and hit random. The first random wikipedia article you get is the name of your band. (List of Bulgarian generals in the Kingdom of Bulgaria)

2 - Go to quotationspage.com and hit random. The last four or five words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your album. (Help you weather your tomorrows)

3 - Go to flickr and click on “explore the last seven days” Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

4 - Use photoshop or similar (picnik.com is a free online photo editor) to put it all together.

5 - Post it with this text in the "caption" and TAG the friends you want to join in.



I'm imagining a sound similar to Sara Bareilles or maybe Dido...

M&M 2.0. Powers Question

Hey look! It's post that has NOTHING to do with Sims.

I know I have a few folks left on the flist who play or played M&M 2.0, so I was hoping to get some advice on how to build a particular power set.

The idea I have is for a character that can manipulate their own (or an object/person they are touching) relationship with gravity. I've looked at Density Control and Gravity Control and neither really fits what I envision.

Any help here? :)

Sunday Picspams and Minor Updates

Sunday picspam this week is going to be a tad light.

This week was my first full work week since going out for surgery. It was good to be back to work and feeling like I was settling into all my projects again, but it did take some time away from sim stuff.

It's interesting. Very often, when I take vacation time, it's for a reason. I'm going to some con, or someone's in town, or whatever. By the time that's wrapped up and I need to get back to work, I don't really feel as refreshed as a vacation should make you feel. Usually by the time I'm back from some trip, I want a vacation from the vacation. This is why, if I can, I try and schedule a day off between the end of the vacation and the start of work. Anyway, with the medical leave for the surgery, I was really starting to go stir crazy with nothing to do and by the time I was back to work, I actually did feel refreshed.

This week, I also started doing a little bit of work on the game I'm going to be running for the Saturday group. I came up with an info sheet of sorts to talk about the setting and some of the system crunch, as well as a questionnaire for the players to fill out to kind of give life to the characters. We spent a couple hours on Saturday going through the questionnaires and discussing characters and establishing connections between them. I think it was a fun exercise to set things up.

Next week I'll actually be running the game, so between now and then, I need to come up with the super powers each character will be developing as part of the story. It should be fun, as long as I don't leave it to the very last minute like I am prone to do. :) There's actually a couple of people I want to powwow with to see if they can offer me some interesting suggestions for these characters.

The other reason I didn't get too much done in the simverse this week is what I had to play...



Sim related ramblings beneath the cut...Collapse )

SUNDAY SPAMDATE

See, it's an update and picspam mixed together, so a Spamdate! Or, maybe I should call it an Uppic? Feh. Whatever, you guys get the point.

I'm really trying to be better about throwing something into LJ on a semi-regular basis. As I said last week, I still read everything in my friends page, but I forget to actually talk here.

Thanksgiving was a nice time. My brother and I went out to my aunt and uncle's and had many good eats for the day. Was nice just hanging out with them. I avoided all the Black Friday brouhaha, but at the same time, I also haven't started my Christmas shopping yet. Ah well.

Random Glee comment – That Bruno Mars song 'Marry You' is completely stuck in my head now. I'm looking forward to hearing their version of 'Dog Days Are Over' and 'Soul Sister' this week. Two of my very favorite songs.

Gaming was a bust this week since two of our group were out of town for the holiday. Still, the rest of us got together and played some board and card games. Got a few rounds of Fluxx in, and then played Robo Rally, which is a fun game by Avalon Hill. Good stuff and I even won a game.

We also spent some time talking about a game I'm going to be running for the group. I'm hoping I don't screw this one up. I don't have a very good track record for keeping a game going. I think if I go into this understanding my weaknesses as a game master, I should be okay.

This time we're going with a very 'Heroes' like setting (y'know, the tv show that was awesome in the first season and then started sucking – we'll skip the sucking parts). The characters will have super powers, but it's not something known by the rest of the world and they'll need to figure out why they suddenly developed these unique abilities. I'm pondering setting it in a medium-sized city. I'd like to use Rochester, but may go with Cleveland to just avoid arguments about something not being where I'm saying it is.

I was considering using the new third edition for Mutants and Masterminds for this, but unfortunately it's not exactly out yet. I could pick it up in the DC Adventures book, but I'm not sure if I want to do that. Unfortunately there are no updates on when that's going to be out.

Anyway, those of you gamer geek friends, if you have suggestions on plot points for a low-key supers game, feel free to share. :)

Okay, now onto the picspam part of the spam.



Brody is shocked that I'm pulling off Sunday Picspam two weeks in a row...Collapse )
It's been a long time since I did a big picspam or even a state of me post. It's silly to have been so long since I still check LJ several times a day. I think it's a combination of procrastination and apathy, both of which I've been trying to change.

First off, state of me. I am coming up on the end of two weeks off from work due to getting my gallbladder taken out. It started giving me issues right before Labor Day and after some tests, it was determined that it was full of stones and should come out. At first I didn't think too much of this. Sure, get the damn thing out so I don't have to be super careful about what I eat. Unfortunately, the closer it got to the date of the surgery, the more I started freaking out. It was minor freaking out to be sure, but it got harder and harder to focus on things I wanted to take care of without this constant buzz of worry cropping up in the back of my mind.

As I told a good friend who also games, "They're going to be going into my body and removing an organ. I've seen horror games start with a more innocuous scenario than that!"

Regardless of my worry, the day came and the surgery went off without any problems. I was home that night and back on my computer in a very drugged state. The folks I chat with regularly would tell you that I was very amusing that evening. I was definitely sore afterwards and for a couple of days it was painful to get up or down, but it was minor, all things considered.

Right now, I'm still sleeping about ten hours a day, but beyond that, I'm feeling fine. If the doctor gives me the okay on Monday, I'll be returning to work on Tuesday. I don't see any reason why they won't give me the go-ahead for that.

So now that the general life tl:dr is over, let me get into the sims related tl:dr…

Cut to save my friends list and for those who couldn't give a fig about my sims obsession... (30+ pics)Collapse )

Character Meme - LADIES NIGHT!

These are just so addicting, I can't stop! I still intend to do a 'State of the Ori' update soon, but for now, here's another character meme guessing game!


1) Make a list of 15 characters first.

2) Ask your flist to post questions in the comments. (Go ahead, ask several! That's a lot of characters.)

For example:
"4, 6, 12 & 15 are starting a band together, what is their name and what kind of music do they play? Also, who's the lead singer, and what instruments do the others play?"

3) After your flist has asked enough questions, round them up and answer them using the 15 characters you selected beforehand, and then post them.

4) Guessing time!

Note: As the title suggests, this time all the characters in the list are women. Each one comes from a different story, so not all of them are mine. I believe that all of the stories they come from can be considered 'Boolprop' stories, so consider that in your guessing. :)

Character Meme - Doran Style

This meme has been great fun. The one I did with my characters was so enjoyable, I decided to do one with just Dorans from the Boolpropian Round Robin Legacy!

1) Make a list of 15 characters first.

2) Ask your flist to post questions in the comments. (Go ahead, ask several! That's a lot of characters.)

For example:
"4, 6, 12 & 15 are starting a band together, what is their name and what kind of music do they play? Also, who's the lead singer, and what instruments do the others play?"

3) After your flist has asked enough questions, round them up and answer them using the 15 characters you selected beforehand, and then post them.

4) Guessing time!

Note: Again, these are all Dorans from the BRRL. Not all of them were my characters, so I shall do my best on judging the answers to the questions for all of them!
