Sims 3 Store Video - Wood Fire Oven

So last night I got my hands on some free video capture software called MSI Afterburner (or Predator as they say on their website, but it's part of Afterburner). After doing a few test videos (including this one) on different games I ended up pretty satisfied. Looks like this is what I will be using in the future so there will be a huge quality increase going forward with University Life and beyond!

Why a video about the Wood Fire Oven? Well, because it was there! And my sims were hungry. Plus it happens to be one of my favourite premium content items that I hadn't shown in video form yet.

Cuteness Incoming!

One of my families' dogs gave birth to three new puppies, and this is one of them. :D

Patch 1.50 Features!

The University Life patch is out, and among many long-awaited bug fixes there are a few new features as well. The dumpsters are no longer just decorative props, they can now be recoloured and sims can dumpster dive for furniture and collectables. This will be great for homeless sims as they can have houses entirely out of found furniture.

Not one, but two new ghosts this time. Death By Blunt Force Trauma (crushed by the murphy bed or vending machine) and Death By Ranting, whose colour reminds me of Mountain Dew. Both have special effects trailing them.

The resemblance is "uncanny?" Ugh...I almost regret making that pun.

There are also new patterns (two of which were used on my dumpster), a new traffic light, new terrain paint, smaller versions of the A/C units from Supernatural, the ability to set bed and door ownership, and new care packages as part of the in-game gifting system. Check out more pictures at SimsVIP.

Oh right, and the new Maxis logo made it in!

Drifting in Bliss...

I love the pool lounger. Looking at this picture reminds me of the super relaxing songs of Owl City and getting a thousand hugs from ten thousand lightning bugs. Or did I just dream that last part...?

Anyways, if the new patch 1.50 installation goes well, expect some videos of the new stuff from that in the near future. Looks like nearly all of Twallan's mods have already been updated.

Full Moon...

It's a full moon in Setra. Good thing there aren't many supernaturals in this world...yet. :P
