Hmmm, our questions would be:

‘Are you not bloody cold living up here?’ and ‘How do I defeat Alduin?’

You’re twenty four hours too early with that one, Movotti – Towel Day is tomorrow.

Simpkin posed probably the most practical question under the circumstances outlined:

Sim Secret Screws Up Again!

Posted in Uncategorized on May 23, 2016 by themaresnest

Dear oh dear!

sim secret fucks up again

The problem?

sim secret fucks up again 1

A mere sixteen ‘secrets’ – and Prah2010 and/or the antiquated LiveJournal platform managed to screw up all but one of them.

slaplol  point

They’ve certainly not been having a good time of late, reflected by the fact their less than charming posters have been turning their impotent ire on us – with their customary disregard for such basic concepts as the truth which has long been the bugbear the Simming community’s scumbags have had with us:

‘Preteens’?

Okay, here’s this week’s prize competition – name a single preteen we’ve ever slagged off in The Mare’s Nest. In your own time…

As some of you may remember, we spent a fair old bit of time actually sticking up for them against evil shits like Jarsie9, creepy sexual perverts and of course the organised mob bullies of Aarin’s Jazz-Hands forum. That said, the likes of Cloverstardropper and Spychip did somewhat prove to be more than capable of looking after themselves…

But please continue:

We’re sure if we ever said anything remotely un-PC, Vidkid20 (who is, erm, black…) and Cloverstardropper (who is trans and has Aspergers…) would be the first to pull us up for it (well okay, Switch would dominate us with her crabbiness whilst Viddie would give us tittie twisters…).

Oh, we don’t occupy the moral high ground by the way, it’s more the case that Sim Secret occupies the utter depths of scumanity all too often.

Little of it is true or worthwhile – much of it petty spite targetting such harmless souls as Berrypie, MedleyMisty or Sharkloverplayer whilst remaining remarkably quiet whenever there is any real need to cry ‘foul’. Some of it is even dedicated to the sort of historical revisionism that would make David Irving blush – such as perpetuating the myths surrounding The Sims Resource with those running More Awesome Than You and Mod The Sims (dealt with here).

Which as we’ve explained before is a pity, because when Sim Secret does good, it does so with remarkable effectiveness. Mod The Sims was treading very, very dangerous ground two years ago which could easily have led to adverse publicity that the Simming community could have ill afforded (just a pity that Delphy never learned any lessons from it) – the Lungpaul character in particular it turned out was heavily involved in gaming circles obsessed with adding rape and bestiality mods to games including the Sims series.

Which begs the question as to why those at Sim Secret claim that we did the exact opposite of what we did!

Yeah, and we’re soooo top of Delphy, Sims4.me and Lungpaul’s Christmas card lists – and we don’t think!

slaplol  whistling mares nest version

But we digress. The trouble is that SS does the useful stuff once in the very bluest of moons – most of it is week after tortuous week all about being negative and shitty, whereas we’re more about being silly and jokey for the larger part, and that’s the biggest difference of all between us and Sim Secret – and thank the plumbob (note spelling, wretches!) this is so. Hence the reason why we concentrated over the years so much on fruitcakes such as Sunnisweetyxoxo, Spookyscones, etc. and their antics.

The irony was – of course – a mere week later, guess who they were relying on to tell them the truth about another of the arch-bumnuggets and drama queens of the Simming world?

Hey Ya Divvies! Get Yourselves A Liverpool Town Hall!

Posted in Uncategorized on May 22, 2016 by themaresnest

We like this:

Cutsocks version of liverpool town hall

Cutsocks over at Mod The Sims, have come up with their interpretation of the above, which of course you could simply convert over to any other purpose you choose.

Three floors and plenty of scope for development – it has even got a copy of the council chambers:

How accurate is it a depiction of the real thing?

It’s All In The Spin: How EA Covers Up Dissent On Sims 4 In Their Own EA Forum

Posted in Uncategorized on May 21, 2016 by themaresnest

nannysteph is so over sims 4 1

Earlier in the month, EA’s version of Comical Ali – Graham Nardone – told anyone that would listen about the supposed growth in the Sims 4 player base – which is rather different to the story we’ve been getting told locally by those in Britain’s beleaguered games shops who have been discounting even the Sims 4 bundle sets in the hopes of shifting some of the fuckers.

Of course, this doesn’t allow for the ever increasing numbers of people who simply download games from online, but what happened with the following thread today is certainly illustrative that whatever stories Graham Nardone may be barfing, EA’s desperation to shield it’s decreasing fanbase from bad news tells otherwise:

nannysteph is so over sims 4

NannySteph and SarahsShady made their feelings known about the Glitterturd on the forum today, and as World Explorers Pary and Tangie-HappySimmer3 duly noted, EA’s response was to move the thread into the Sims 3 section.

nannysteph is so over sims 4 2

Now why would EA’s Simgurus and/or SimStaff do that? Why not simply scrub the thread if they don’t want Sims 4 players to read bad news? This is the part where you get to see what sneaky bumnuggets they are. By moving the critical thread into the Sims 3 section, it dilutes those wanting to talk about Sims 3 in that section – perpetuating the myth that the ‘old’ game’s section is staid and all Sims 3 players have left to keep them is moaning about Sims 4.

GabbyGirlJ and King_Of_SimCity7 meanwhile were adding their contributions – the former adding to the World Explorers’ musings…

… as did the latter – latterly! – along with HSmith2016 and StephSteb:

nannysteph is so over sims 4 5

nannysteph is so over sims 4 6

There was some light relief however as CravenLestat was meanwhile eyeing up Pary to be the latest of his Sims 3 game wifelets!

Down boy, down!

GoldenBuffy Wants Whipped Cream For Her Breasts (And Igazor Is Happy To Oblige)

Posted in Uncategorized on May 20, 2016 by themaresnest

Before CravenLestat has a heart attack, perhaps we ought to point out there’s a perfectly innocent explanation for this (well, okay, in the beginning there was at any rate…).

goldenbuffy wants breasts and whipped cream

GabbyGirlJ and KevinL5275 were of a similar mind.

Even Tangie-HappySimmer3 and Igazor (who else!) got in on the act:

goldenbuffy wants breasts and whipped cream 2

Which was the point where it all started to go pear shaped – or rather perv shaped…

This met the approval of the infrequently posting veteran Simmer Suzses.

Restrain yourself, madam!

Anthonydyer’s Strange Things With The Maid

Posted in Uncategorized on May 20, 2016 by themaresnest

Sadly, this post proved to be less interesting than the title suggested, but others begged to differ, so what the hell, see what you think.

anthonydyer's strange things with the maid

Minx, ChelleJo and (oh plumbobs, here we go again…) 5782341b77vl had experiences of their own to tell:

However, and thankfully, KevinL5275 gave us the post we were actually expecting from the title.

ChelleJo’s Sand And Sandals Simming Epic… If Only She Can Get The Sandals At Least!

Posted in Uncategorized on May 20, 2016 by themaresnest

Okay, this is a pretty unusual request.

chellejo's biblical request

There were of course togas that could be modified from the so-called ‘limited’ edition of the University Life EP, which you can pick up for free all over the joint – or you can get Amylet’s female togas over at Hello Little Girl Would You Like A Sweetie Mod The Sims.  For sandals, there’s Gosik’s which look appropriate for the era (again only for female unfortunately).

There’s also the Al-Simhara clothes from World Adventures and the various Greco-Roman pieces from EA and umpteen mod creators.

If anyone else can help ChelleJo, here’s where to go on the EA forum – go on, help one of the good eggs out!
