Default Confessions of a CC Addict on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown
No, I'm not really on the verge of a nervous breakdown but now that I have your attention I have a confession to make. When I woke up from my beauty sleep this morning I told myself that I would make some changes in my life and I did.

I deleted my 101 MB Default Replacement Clothing folder. The fabulous shirts, the jeans, the sexy underwear. All gone. It's back to fugly chic and EA defaults. I did it because I felt guilty for having a 101 MB subfolder in my Downloads folder, just sitting there collecting pixel dust. And that's just default replacement clothing. I'm not even counting the mods and build/buy items.

On the bright side, I still have H&M and I am thinking of getting more stuff packs for clothes (Teen Style Stuff does have adult clothing, right?) to fill this empty hole inside me. And my sims' closets.

If you have a confession to make, feel free to share. This is a safe space.

My confession is ( I think or maybe this have happen to others as well ) from years of playing my Sims ( too much ) I think at one time or another that my mind did cross over into the "Twilight Zone. " Thinking my Sims really existed and their neighborhoods.

Had to "Slap" my face and wake up to the fact hey this is only a game not your relatives or neighbors. I Play the Sims so much that to me they was "Real" now how crazy is that ? You become very protected of your Sim game. That my confession of today ( Forgive Me Father Sim For I Have Sin ) hahaha

I confess that I sometimes enjoy hanging out with my Sims (playing) more than my RL friends and family.

I confess that when I quit and the message pop-up asks "Are you sure?" I almost always answer: "No, but I'm going to."

I confess there was a time in my old game where I could recall what many townies/downtownies/dormies/npcs looked like -- Just by their clothes and full names. 0-0 It was then I took a long hiatus... definitely was playing too much back then ^^;

Hm, I have only one confession to make, sometimes the game is played cruelly by me, and then I feel horribly guilty It's stupid, isn't it? After all, it's a game, and sims aren't real people. But when something bad happens to a sim, I feel guilty anyway. It doesn't feel like a real person died, but it feels somewhat as if I killed a kitten.

Last bad thing happened a few days ago, and I still can't get over it! Stupid. I guess my hood became designed to let bad things happen, because they all happen for story reasons. If that didn't happen, I'd be forced to assume that a particular sim had a lobotomy or something. She needed milk from cowplant, so she absolutely had to resurrect a sim who died in front of her as a zombie by Vivicus Zombie. And then she absolutely had to kill her . But I feel so guilty! I really liked that sim who got zombified and killed, she derserved to live on, at least as a zombie (besides, she was happy to become a zombie, to my surprise, her memory said "I'm ecstatic"). But a witch sim has no reason at all to resurrect her again, it would be out of character . So now I'm stuck feeling guilty, just because I can't find any means to resurrect her without ruining the hood story and characters.

I confess that after so many years of having just under 500 mb of downloads, I've now got about 2.1 gigs of it!
That's just in my 'downloads' folder alone-not counting the floors, terrains, lots, and walls that are outside the downloads folder.
I should be ashamed of myself..but I'm not!
My sims have a huge CC problem: me!
Another confession: I can't leave well enough alone with new lots that I've downloaded from a site-if a lot appeals to me, I will completely remake it-tearing down entire floors and reworking it to please me. Sometimes it doesn't even look like the original after I get through with it. I feel guilty at undoing all the hard work of other creators-but the lots often play better with my changes.

Shouldn't it be "Forgive Me Father For I Have Simmed"?

My confession would have to be that I spend so long either playing or sorting out my CC that sometimes it invades my sleep (yes, I dream about sims).

No need to use my full name, "Selly" will do just fine.

Oh, thank God I'm not the only one. I had a long dream the other night wherein I was one of my current favorite Sims. It was way too freaky...

As far as CC confessions: I confess that I have almost 3 GB, just of stuff that I've made, not counting the stuff that other people made, and most of it is NOT large files like hair can be, since I don't do BodyShop stuff. It's not all always in my game, mind you, but I have it. Those of you who download my stuff should be very, VERY afraid.

So I'm taking another stab at documenting a neighborhood. This one stars Benjamin Long. Pathetic attempts at humor can be found here.
I caved and made myself a Simblr. Woe is me. But hey! There's already stuff there that isn't here at MTS. :)

I don't regard dreaming about sims as a problem, as we will all dream about the things we do repeatedly. I dream about mixed sim/human interactions and about things happening to sims I am not intensely involved with. For instance, a dormie I recruited into the frat to make numbers who performs secondary-character functions in the lives of two different sets of sims featured in one the other night, turning invisible and walking around as an empty suit of clothes. This seems to me normal and healthy.

@ Selly 2009 your use of Simmed is funny lol, but I perfer to use the word "Sin" because there was a lot of days I did not go to services to save my soul from hell. ( lmao ) Because on those days I was just to busy playing my Sims instead. I guess this is another confession.

@Simonut, fair enough - it was what you said that made me think of it; no offense was intended.

And yes, not going to services because you were too busy simming would be classed as another confession!

@ Octavia you think a day is bad lemme tell u something.

I only play the maxis hoods. Just this week i deleted, then reimported original backup hoods of all 6 at Least 5 times that day after about an hour each. I can't for the life of me get focused.


My confession is that even with the megahood I can't settle with playing. No matter what family I'm playing I want to be playing a different one for fear that I'll never get to try them out. Which is true enough I've never gotten to touch some of them and NONE of them have ever gotten past even one full generation before I restart.

Me too, I don't know if it's my attention span or longing for a new shiny sim family to test out all my CC clothing and hair and skin and blahblah (the list goes on), but I am always making new families and abandoning my old ones.

... i've been doing this for like five (REAL) years.--that's my confession

poor abandoned sims... i wonder if when we're not playing them they have little "yahoo we're free" sim parties

Oh, I know what you mean about not being able to settle down in the game! I'm constantly changing the landscape, houses, etc-and not playing the game. Then I'll get tired of the hood, dump/save it for posterity and get another saved hood in, then repeat.
It gets tedious. I wonder if this is a form of ADHD? Never being able to actually focus on the game long enough to play it past one generation?

I do the same thing quite often. When I'm halfway done building one hood I end up getting bored and starting over.

I do have one more "Confession" that I almost completely forgot about, hum, should I ? oh well I may as well say it since I am cleaning my Simmer soul in confessions.
When I first started playing Sims 2 ( in 2006 ) and enter the Pleasantview neighborhood, and check out all the households just to see who was in each lot.

When I went into "Don Lothario" lot for the first time I was so fascinated by his appearance, ( I love a male with facial hair very manly ) as time pass and I learn the in and out of the game. I made my Sims self so that I could be with Don Lothario in the game. I think it was during that period of time that I began to first cross over into the twightlight zone, of complete Sims craziness. lmao That It No More Confessions.
