You should know that the NRaas volunteers stepped up and really got it done. The updates to the final Sims 3 patch are up for download and exhaustedly tested. I didn’t even end up getting involved in the coding — several people with actual experience with Sims mods stepped in and really made it happen.
So go, patch, and update your mods. All is well.
I feel good that I helped to get the ball rolling from, “Holy crap! What are we going to do without Twallan?” to “Let’s go do this.” I always wanted to find a way to give back to the community, and I got to do it. But if I’d been involved with the coding, it would have taken a LOT longer.
As for me, my Windows partition imploded without warning on Tuesday, so I can’t even play the game. Everything is safely backed up and waiting for me and my husband to sit down and decide whether this is the final straw for buying a new computer. This laptop was a top-of-the-line MacBook pro four years ago, and really I don’t need any more in terms of specs, but four years on a laptop is quite a lot just in terms of wear-and-tear. The trackpad died, and I’m hauling around a plug-in external trackball. Hubbie and I both think this sudden corruption of the Windows partition hints at more serious hardware failures to come.
This shouldn’t affect my BLOGGING, though, since I have quite a bit to go to catch up on all three blogs. That goes in fits and starts, and I’ll see if I can get a fit going sometime soon. I have the next installment of Forest’s saga composed.
