Crisps&Kerosene sims

Ask me anything   // My CC // My Sims-related Photosets // My name is Roxan and I'll probably be playing TS2 in my grave. My conversion-making philosophy: if it can be functional then it will be. I kept the PSD documents of most of my conversions; just ask if you want them to make recolours.

Anonymous asked: Hi! I love your photosets and cc! I was wondering how you make the photosets? What are your sources for images? Thank you :)


Answer:

Hey!

Making photosets is easy. Here is an overly detailed explanation of how I do it (I need a distraction while my game loads) :

To find images, I simply use Google. Obviously, you’ll need to know what kind of stuff you’re searching for, and make good use of the extended search tools. Getting creative with keywords can also have you stumbling upon interesting pictures. Personally, I like to find my images before I assemble the photoset, and save more than I’ll use. It saves me the trouble of having to look again if something doesn’t fit.

Once I have all the pictures I need, it’s a simple process of arranging them on a basic photoset template. Which means choosing what images’ll look best, cropping and resizing them, making sure the full set is visually balanced (mine sometimes aren’t :p), etc. Then comes a lot of colour tweaking (matching your pics’ hues, then playing with the overall colour(s) of the set). Having good colours is important; a nice scheme will really set the mood. I like to have two main contrasting colours in my sets, but having a few more, or just one overall hue can also work.

Annd I think that’s it. I’ve said a lot about little already :p

(And now I’ve regained my inspiration to make photosets, yay! So I should finally finish the Beaker one, then do the Smiths and the various TS2 hoods.)

3D Glasses for TS2(+ recolours)
An original mesh by me, yay! The glasses are available for both genders, from child to elder. They should fit most face shapes, and otherwise be free of major visual glitches. As usual, feel free to report whatever issue you might still encounter.

When I first played The Sims 2 on PC back in 2004, I said to myself “How could they ever improve upon this game?” Turns out they couldn’t.

Reblogged without comment.

I won’t say that TS2 is flawless and that there is nothing I’d change, because that wouldn’t be true, but yeah. The jump from TS1 to it was huge, and it’s difficult to think of how a developpement of that magnitude could be replicated. TS2 brought on ~brand new dimensions in space and time~, so the followings games just couldn’t live up to that for me, ya know?
