State of the Blogs Address

I hate publishing lists. They make me feel pressured to get stuff done. But they’re completely necessary; they help me keep my projects organized and plan for the future.

Right now, I’m extremely pissed off. Google has this insipid “It’s okay for you to post your NSFW shit here, but we can’t host your NSFW images here”. I mean, you can do it, but if someone flags your post Google can delete the post or even close the blog. I have waaay too much invested (5 years at BHS and 3 ½ at BHSA) to run that risk. I’m usually a happy little ray of sunshine, but with over 11 years in the simming community, I’ve burned a few bridges, and off the top of my head I can think of six or seven people who would jump at the chance to report my blog. So no. Not going to happen.

The issue is this: over the last year, I’ve had major problems with two image hosting sites. When I was active with my story blogs, I used postimg for BHSA and eroshare to host NSFW images for my story blogs. Then eroshare just up and shut down, completely unannounced. I was left with hundreds of broken images. Instead of wasting more time finding a different host and getting them set up again, I began the laborious task of converting all my stories to .pdf documents and dismantling the blogs.

So then a couple of days ago, postimg decided to change domain names from postimg.org to postimages.org, again completely unannounced. This broke 90% of the images in BHSA. The images are still there, but I was stuck with the choice of editing every single effing post or moving my images to a new host. I chose Option B; I’m done giving these a-holes free traffic from my blog. I’ll find a better host, thank you very much.

That said, I’m about 30% done. Please bear with me. Migrating the images to imgbox is my highest priority, but I want to make sure my fans are getting new content every week or two as well.

I’m mostly done with Phase One of housekeeping, but these are the changes you can expect in the following months:

Major updates at BHS:

•I am currently about 30% done with La Paga and 70% done with Midnight at the Mess Hall: Galley Essentials. Look for them soon.

•In planning: 8-10 more Midnight at… sets, 2-3 more Combate Moderno sets, and a few unrelated projects.

Major updates at BHSA:

I will migrate all my NSFW images to imgbox and fix the broken image links. This is my highest priority, and I expect to have it done in less than a week. This is done.

•I will repair the funky mesh that I used for Rio Resurgence: Coni’s Collection, if I can. If I can get it fixed, there may be a few more Rio Resurgence: Coni’s Collection updates.

•Look for a new, as-yet-untitled series of projects, featuring the Well-Rounded bodyshape.

Major updates at both blogs:

•I will finish transferring my abandoned story blogs to .pdf. I’m about 75% done with this project; the only blog remaining Is Blue Heaven Stories, Volume 2.

•I will continue publishing the Tutorial Library tutorials, in both English and Spanish (hopefully with Coni’s help). I still have 8-10 incomplete tutorials.

Re-uploading fixed Rio with Sexyfeet mesh with morphs (Thank you, Lifa!) and fixing upload links at both blogs. This is done.

Non-blog related projects:

Currently wrapping up a request at PBK. Done.

•Still at the Sims 2 Discord, continuing to provide one-on-one creation help and generally being awesome.



Detesto publicar listas. Me hacen sentir presionado para hacer las cosas. Pero son completamente necesarios; me ayudan a mantener mis proyectos organizados y planear para el futuro.

En este momento, estoy bastante encabronado. Google tiene la política insípida de "Está bien que publiques aquí tus publicaciones adultos, pero aquí no podemos alojar tus imágenes". Quiero decir, puedes hacerlo, pero si alguien reporta tu publicación, Google puede eliminar la publicación o incluso cerrar el blog. He invertido demasiado (5 años en BHS y 3½ en BHSA) para correr ese riesgo. Normalmente soy un pequeño y feliz rayo de sol, pero con más de 11 años en la comunidad de Sims, he quemado algunos puentes, y en este momento puedo nombrar seis o siete personas que saltan a la posibilidad para reportar mi blog. Entonces no. No va a pasar.

El problema es lo siguiente: en el último año, he tenido problemas graves con dos sitios de alojamiento de imágenes. Cuando estaba activo con mis blogs de historias, usé postimg para BHSA y eroshare para alojar imágenes adultas para mis blogs de historias. Luego eroshare cerró, sin previo aviso. Me quedé con cientos de imágenes rotas. En lugar de perder más tiempo buscando un sitio de alojamiento diferente y volviendo a subir todo, comencé la laboriosa tarea de convertir todas mis historias en documentos .pdf y desmantelar los blogs.

Luego, hace un par de días, postimg decidió cambiar el nombre del dominio de postimg.org a postimages.org, nuevamente sin aviso previo. Esto rompió el 90% de las imágenes en BHSA. Las imágenes siguen ahí, pero me quedé con la opción de editar cada una de las putas publicaciones o mover mis imágenes a un nuevo sitio. Elegí la Opción B; Terminé de darles a estos ojetes el tráfico de mi blog. Encontraré un mejor anfitrión, muchas gracias.

Dicho eso, lo tengo a un 30% completo. Por favor, tenga paciencia conmigo. Migrar las imágenes a imgbox es mi más alta prioridad, pero quiero asegurarme de que mis fans obtengan nuevo contenido cada semana o dos también.

Ya terminé la Fase Uno de mantenimiento, pero estos son los cambios que puede esperar en los próximos meses:

Actualizaciones importantes en BHS:

• Actualmente estoy aproximadamente a un 30% terminado con La Paga y a 70% terminado con Midnight at the Mess Hall: Galley Essentials. Búscalos pronto.

• En planificación: 8-10 proyectos más de Midnight at ..., 2-3 más de Combate Moderno, y algunos proyectos no relacionados.

Actualizaciones importantes en BHSA:

• Migraré todas mis imágenes adultas a imgbox y corregiré los enlaces de imagen rotos. Esta es mi principal prioridad, y espero que se haga en menos de una semana. Al cien.

• Si es posible, repararé la mesh mal hecha que usé para Rio Resurgence: Coni's Collection. Si puedo solucionarlo, puede haber algunas novedades de Rio Resurgence: Coni's Collection.

• Pela los ojos por una nueva serie de proyectos sin título, que incluya la bodyshape Well-Rounded.

Actualizaciones importantes en ambos blogs:

• Terminaré la transferencia de mis blogs de historias abandonadas a .pdf. Estoy casi un 75% terminado con este proyecto; el único blog que queda es Blue Heaven Stories, Volumen 2.

• Continuaré publicando los tutoriales de la Biblioteca de Tutoriales, tanto en inglés como en español (espero que con la ayuda de Coni). Todavía tengo 8-10 tutoriales incompletos.

• Volver a cargar el mesh reparado de Rio con Sexyfeet y con morfos (¡Gracias, Lifa!) y corregir los enlaces de descarga en ambos blogs. Al cien.

Proyectos no relacionados con el blog:

• Actualmente estoy terminando una solicitud en PBK. Completo.

• Aún en sigo en el Sims 2 Discord, donde continuo brindando atención uno a uno a creadores y, en general siendo increíble.

Rio Resurgence (Part 4)


Important Update- 4/17/2018: My friend Lifa added morphs to both meshes. If you downloaded before 4/17, please redownload.

Happy Friday, folks.

About
I love the Rio bodyshape. Love love love it. In my opinion, it was probably Warlokk's best work. Not quite as top-heavy as CPU, Rio has slightly smaller, more naturally-shaped boobs, but she's beamier around the beam end. Overall, I think Rio is criminally underappreciated.

There are plenty of good everyday clothes (be sure to check out Julie's stuff here!!!) but to my knowledge, nobody ever got around to updating Warlokk's original underwear and nude meshes with Bloom's sexyfeet. I noticed this when I was doing my underwear set for Midnight at the Quartermaster, and so I redid both meshes.

The clothing comes in two versions, Tooltip'd (if you don't have BSOK installed) and BSOK'd (if you do). Please choose only one.

Overview

Part 4 is the last of the "regular" sets (the sets that use just the swimsuit and nude meshes). It includes the last of the Bruno lingerie sets, some underwear, and a variety of bikinis, in regular and topless versions.

Midnight at the Crew Quarters- Gamma Shift Adventures


Happy Friday, All.

Overview

This is the latest in my Midnight at... series. It's a set of adult poses designed specifically to be used with the objects from Midnight at the Crew Quarters. The objects must be downloaded separately.

The Midnight overproject represents a return to my roots: sci-fi stuff. My original vision was much like Modular Furniture Series 4. I wanted to build a whole set of objects, walls and floors, and build mode elements that blend seamlessly with each other. The difference is that whereas MFS4 was utopian and clean-ish, Midnight is more gritty, for creating sinister, dystopian sets. The objects are made from scratch by me, and thoroughly tested. The file includes:

Midnight at the Crew Quarters- Gamma Shift Adventures: A posebox with 19 new posegroups, for a total of 40 new poses.


Warning: Intense Picspam ahead

Rio Resurgence- Coni's Collection Part 2


Happy Friday, folks. Here's a fun little set to add to the growing Rio Resurgence series. Part 2 includes a small ensemble of PG-13-ish Anime-inspired schoolgirl and sailor outfits with (gasp!) no panties.

This set is a little bit different. While I was working on the "regular" Rio Resurgence outfit sets, Coni came across one of Julie J's old Alpha skirt meshes. The boobs on the blouse needed a little bit of work (there was some major sideboob action before I modified the mesh a bit), but I fixed it up nice.
Coni suggested doing a few shoewswaps for the mesh, so that she could do a bunch of different outfits.

This is a team effort. Coni did the textures and Alphas, and I did the technical stuff like putting the meshes together and BSOKing. And here we are.

Rio Resurgence- Coni's Collection Part 1


Happy Friday, folks. Sorry for the recent hiatus. Like many creators, I was one of the victims of Windows 10 Update 1709, and haven't been able to use my game much since then. I'm working to get Windows 7 installed, but have run into some issues. I intend to jump back in with both feet as soon as I have the issue fixed, but for the time being I'm sidelined.

Cocksure


Happy Friday, everybody.

About
I usually don't take on requests, but this seemed like a cool idea and I expanded quite a bit from what the original requester asked for. The project is called Cocksure, and it's about... well, umm, cocks.

Overview
So a very long time ago, not long after Marvine first created the HBB bodyshape, she made several cock meshes to accompany the clothing. The meshes themselves are awesome, but they were originally done with blockfeet, and were never fully converted when the HBB v2 came out.

The requester asked me to just to cut off the collars on a couple of the Juppendales stripper outfits, but me being me I made a complete project out of it. I took all three original cock sizes in both states and added the V2 feet, made linked showerproof skintones, and poses (because why have giant cocks if your sims can't pose with them?).

Rio Resurgence is a new side project I'm working on, dedicated to Rio worship. Along with an updated True Naked suit, this set will endeavor to convert a bunch of popular and well-made underwear, swimsuits, and BDSM wear to the new Rio with Sexyfeet mesh.
