Thoughts, Prayers, Bloody Everything You’ve Got For Writin_Reg For Tomorrow

Posted in Uncategorized on October 18, 2018 by themaresnest


We’ll let her tell you herself.

Those of you who have been around will remember her earlier battles with leukaemia – which resulted in one of the more profound moments on the EA forum (with Evil_One).

Our Reggie’s probably one of the last to admit it, and she’s definitely the last to ever think it accords her special status over any other Simmers (plumbob knows we’ve disagreed with her often enough!), but in Simming terms she is – and will always remain – a big deal, one of the last connections to the very genesis of the game in the last century (yep, the last century – doesn’t that make you all feel old when we’re nearly a fifth of the way through the twenty first one!) with Will Wright, as well as one of its saviours for her battle against SecureROM which could easily have killed the series stone dead before there was ever a Sims 3 – let alone Sims 4.

But beyond all that, she’s one of the all round bloody good sorts along with Rflong7/13 that made us fall in love with the crazy, silly, funny and yes sometimes exasperating people in the Simming community in the first place.

We admit tomorrow’s gonna feel a bloody long day until we see the news one way or another from Reggie.

Please God/Allah/Yahweh/Frith/Grand Controller of the Wibbly Wobbly Timey Wimey Stuff (that ought to cover all the bases…), just this once let it be good news for one of the good guys for a change.

Kick us in the teeth instead if a deal clincher’s required (you can’t have our souls, they’ve already been sold to sixteen daedric prince and princesses in Skyrim and it’s already in the courts as Eris is also claiming first dabs on them anyway from the Before-Life as part of her divorce settlement with you).

Please please please, just let it be good news.

Come on, this once, please?


LaBlue0314 Would Like To Introduce You To Devon Santiago

Posted in Uncategorized on October 17, 2018 by themaresnest

She’s currently in discussion with several networks for three series of twenty episodes apiece where she’s an international enforcer of law, researcher into ancient mysteries and seeking to create the perfect expresso blend.

Actually she isn’t but if some TV executive out there is fuckwitted enough to think Jodie Whittaker makes a good Doctor Who (she plays the part like she was Peggy from that dreadful old comedy show Hi-De-Hi – and she runs like Filch in Goblet of Fire) we fancy Devon Santiago’s chances!

Mind you, IreneSwift’s pretty good at the detective work herself!

Yes, Wsteffi30, That Was A Dumb Question

Posted in Uncategorized on October 16, 2018 by themaresnest

Like … seriously!

If you download a Simmie from Mediafire, how the plumbobs are you unable to see the connection between those coming in Sims3pack format appearing in your download folder via the EA forum or .sim format ones already in your CAS folder?

In short, have you done any basic research into the structure of game you are playing.

If no, ought you not best familiarise yourself before you start adding anything else to it? Just saying…

Chain_Reaction Finally Goes Nuclear

Posted in Uncategorized on October 14, 2018 by themaresnest

We were saving this one for a moment when we needed cheering up – and although the circumstances were unfortunate, it bloody cheered us up no end!

At last! At BLOODY LAST!

Don’t get us wrong, we loved the fact NRaas Industries has been the antithesis of Fatbeard Pescado and the MATY scum, we love the fact they have never gone prima donna like their old website provider The Isz did, but there’s been times we’ve felt they’ve been too nice for their own good – certainly more than certain elements of the Simming community have deserved.

The NRaas mods are one of the main reasons we still have a vibrant Sims 3 community in the first place and this of all times should have been the one fellow Simmers ought to have cut some slack.

You’ll remember we weren’t too happy about this, indeed we’d been a bit cynical about the manner some Simmers appear to think that NRaas members are supposed to be at their convenience (hence the bus stop gag) so hopefully this will be the start of everyone giving them a break.

As Letrax put it, shifting a full website is a fully fledged pain in the arse with no ‘Preparation H’ for it – so don’t be a bumnugget to those trying to sort it!


LaBlue0314’s Simbot Plumbot Bitchfest!

Posted in Uncategorized on October 13, 2018 by themaresnest

It’s almost like that meeting between the Daleks and the Cybermen:

Goulsquash was horrified at this lack of bothood:

But Igazor was more phlegmatic:

But that’s the thing with bots – you don’t make the grade, they start throwing the shade!


Pancake101’s Brewing Up Some Simblreen Goodies

Posted in Uncategorized on October 12, 2018 by themaresnest

Over at Mod The Sims, Pancake101 is usually uploading the lots regularly (following the strict premise that Store content and custom content are never used), but they’ve really outdone themselves this time.

Her designs are based on the Department 56 and Lemax Halloween series of collectibles, and what a wonderful job they’ve done up to now.

A creepy concert venue and gardening/alchemists shack is just the job to go with all her other Spooky Town builds.

For those of you who have ever wanted a real Supernatural town but found Moonlight Falls too half hearted and Midnight Hollow too dark and cramped, these could be all the downloads you need to make your very own supernatural dwelling map of your choice.

So why not give it a go – here’s where to go!
