I know how you feel Melibee. I'm way over on my word count too. You'll have to find seven words to remove though, unless you want to get ducked some points under the "rule adherence" category. At least you only have 7 words to cut. You don't even want to know how far over I am... Haha.

Haha, I know what you mean. I wrote a story for the last one and kept myself to the same rules I asked the contestants to follow. There were many times I had to keep condensing to get JUST inside the word limit.

You can leave it but you will be penalized for going over (or under).

Yes, I'm only about eighteen words under the cut-off limit for my story. Just have to make the pictures. I find that if you go through your story, you'll find some words that are just superfluous. Did you really need to add 'he said' that one extra time? Or maybe that again and again and again, that last again should be taken off. Also, take a look through your story. If you find a description that took a couple of words, try a thesaurus and see if you can find one word that encompasses those couple of words. But I'd definitely find a way to cut those 7 words out. There's no reason to lose points in rule adherence for just 7 words. As for if you have quite a bit more than 7, maybe try seeing if you can cut a scene out and add that scene to the next round.

While trying to take my pictures today, my game decided it wanted to crap out on the graphics and now my Sims seem a little more pixelly than before. Has anyone had this problem? I changed my graphics to high for Sim detail but I have a great computer, it should handle it perfectly fine. In fact, it was handling it perfectly fine, right until I took my Sim out of the CAH and into the world. And the closer I get, the more the pixels seem to show up.

Heaven, you said when you extended the deadline that those who already posted could edit our entries until that date?

LOL I had to trim down multiple times for mine. "Okay... don't really need that sentence... DAMN still 25 words... cut that.... DAMN another 15... GAH I CAN'T POSSIBLY CUT ANYTHING MORE!... Oh, wait, how about that?... *does a little happy dance* Yay, two words under the max!"

Oooo... I want to do this. I already have a story I could use for this, too. But trying to decide if I can write two stories at once since I'm already in the middle of a sims story. ...Hmmm, I think I could do it. The formats and styles are different enough that I don't think I'd have a big issue with juggling. I'll work on both until the 4th and if I don't have any real problems, then I'm in.

Well, that sucks. Good news though...we aren't judging on graphics! We should obviously be able to see your pictures and understand the scene but if it's blurry and pixelated, who are we to judge your computer specs? I'll just remove my blog link now so no one can see my crappy graphics card at work.

One word of advice, never, ever call CAS CAH. Morph made that mistake last story and his game refused to work for him. Create a Sim has and always will be CAS regardless of the pets there now. /me bows to CAS and apologizes for LifesLover's ignorant mistake.

Yep, you are more than welcome to edit up until the round closes. Especially since I increased the deadline.

Okay, that's a load off my mind. And, lol, I actually did call it CAS when I first wrote that, but then I thought, oh, wait, it says create a household now, maybe I should change it. I will remember now.

Please, please for the love of all things furry and cute, don't quote my entire original post. It's a lot to read through at the beginning. No way do we want to have it on multiple pages.

Does removing a plumbob/skill bar count as photoshopping?

It took forever to get the sims lined up properly for a shot, and I couldn't find a camera angle that kept them in anything like the right pose and still hid the skill bars and the plumbob. And I'm not patched high enough to use the pose player, so I have to find poses I can catch on my own. (I stopped patching with 1.24. )

Use hideHeadlineEffects on to get rid of thought bubbles, plumbobs, and skill bars while in game.

Thanks. I had been trying the Sims 2 version of the command, so I thought they had removed it. (That wouldn't surprise me much.)

Thankyou for the advice!
Im hopefully going to be releasing the chapter tomorrow or the next day. I am almost done with all of the pictures, and I finished the writing portion a while ago.
Now to see where each of my jumbled up mess of pictures fits

You're welcome! I knew there was a cheat that did it but I couldn't remember which, so I just used the help command in Sims 3.

Okay here is my story I hope I put this in right. I am going to put it in a spoiler so it takes up less space on the thread :D
This is a different Genre for me (normaly I am all Sci-fi, but this is more realistic), so I hope it turns out okay

Yay, someone who uses spoiler quotes! xD

Maybe it's just because I have terribly slow Internet, but I hate it when I visit a page, and it's bogged down by hundreds of pictures.

@Misanthrope Yeah I hate when my computer freezes up because of pictures too! I mean i am fine when people do it, but I feel like its easier to scroll down and see other posts when its in a spoiler :D
@LadyAwesome : That sucks! I had that happen to me before we got the new computer few years ago. ALL of my stuff was fried. couldnt even save all of my cc to a flash drive to get it onto the new computer. I lost everything. Hopefully you can get everything back

I hope reinstalling worked for you.

I hadn't thought of spoiler tags, but that seems like a good idea.

Gosh, I am SO glad I extended the application round. We're still 6 people shy of the minimum number. Hope that it is going well for all of you who are working on an entry. And, if you're lurking but not saying anything, welcome! We won't bite...hard. Just a nibble. Or two. :D
