Ramblings of a Victorian Simmer

Welcome to the Simblr of Dicreasy. This is where I post and reblog pictures which inspire me for my story, as well as the odd picture which amuses me whilst I play, film or create custom content. For actual ramblings and drabbles based in my story's miniverse, check out Di's Victorian Vexes. For my cc, head over to Di's Victorian Emporium and if you just love the history of the nineteenth century and playing a neighbourhood set during that time, visit Victoria & George.

Off to the games!

So, I did do a little bit on the elder combinations this morning, but the UV map is giving me some headaches due to how I’ve reshaped the bust.  I will have to have a proper look at it at some point, but it won’t be for a few days.  You see, I’m off to Glasgow until Wednesday to go and watch the Commonwealth Games.  Take care everyone and I’ll be back in a few days.

It is so annoying isn’t it?  I’ve managed to play a bit more over the past couple of days without it crashing, but I’m not really getting into the game, because I’m constantly waiting for it to freeze.  Plus, I’m still on the first part of the game, and I keep thinking “you know what Haytham?  Your father is so much more fun to play.”  So then I quit it and go play Black Flag.

*sigh*  I’m up to Assassin’s Creed III on my Assassin’s Creed series playthrough/megabinge, but it’s constantly crashing, to the point it’s just about unplayable.  According to Steam, I’ve played 4 hours of it.  I can tell you that only about an hour and a half, if that, is me actually playing the game.  The rest is me restarting it after trying to fix the crashing.  It’s so annoying, since I can run Black Flag on this machine with no problems whatsoever apart from a little bit of lag during some sea battles.

I think a reinstall might be in order, but my internet is pretty slow lately, and it took me over two evenings to download the game in the first place.  Feeling very frustrated at the moment with it.  :(

The previews for the adult combinations are taken, I just need to edit them and then I can get to uploading.  I also had a look at the elder mesh to see how much I still had to do on it.  I was pleasantly surprised to see that the fat morph is actually done, so all I need to do is view it in game and then make adjustments to the overall shape of the two morphs.  I’m very excited to be nearing the end of this part of the project.  I don’t feel like I can play until I’ve got my ideas for undies into my game.

PSDs added to combinations posts

Hi everyone.  I’ve spent the day fighting with Photoshop and have just updated both the teen and child combinations posts with .psds of the textures I used so people can create their own colours more easily.

Day Dress

1870s

Vintage Textile

When I saw this, I wondered who it would suit better, Sarah Jane or Alexandra, but thinking about it, the answer is Sarah Jane.  There is something about the fussiness of the trim on the skirt that is far more suited to her over her mother.

I’ve been making adjustments to the teen and adult combinations meshes now that I’ve seen them in game.  Mainly, I’ve slimmed them down slightly, and given them a bit more shape.  My intention with them, was to make them look like loose combinations, rather than as if the texture was painted onto the nude top meshes, but I think I originally made them look too loose, baggy and boxy.  The adult one also looked slightly off, when I compared it to the corset mesh I’m working on.  Since the idea is that these are the combinations which are worn underneath the corset, I had to fix the hips.  I’m much more pleased with these.  I may take another look at the mapping on the androgynous top, because the lace looks quite a bit wider than it is on the rest of the meshes, including the child mesh, but apart from that, these meshes are done, and it’s just the elder one I need to sort out.

Yes, you Kat. :D  I’ve been meaning to download it since you posted the set, but I’ve been a bit lost in Assassin’s Creed Revelations and Infamous Second Son this week and so kept forgetting until after I’d shut the pc down for the night.

I made over my gearheads and techies as Steampunk sims, so having undies and PJs which fit with their theme is awesome, and something I’ve been sorely missing.  Thank you for the awesome set of awesomeness, :D
