I Need Your Sims!

Hi guys!

I know it’s not one of the usual posting days, but I’m writing because we’re nearing the end of generation 2 and therefore also Gina and Enzo’s wedding. I’ve seen a lot of folks around having other peoples’ sims as guests at the weddings and I thought it would be cool to do something like that! That’s why I’m writing because I have basically everything else I need for the wedding, except a bunch of cool sims in the background.

Basically, I have 10 ‘invitations’ to hand out, meaning that if you like, you can send me a sim and a plus one (optional). I only take two characters from each (the actualy guest list from the story proper is somewhere around 24 lord help me), so things don’t get too crazy. I’m not going to include the characters in the story proper, except as background sims. I think it would be weird to suddenly include a bunch of characters we’ve never heard of before. Rather, I’ll have a massive wedding photo shoot where every one is shown off, both here and on Tumblr. I hope that’s okay. πŸ™‚ I get if you guys can’t be bothered to do this, but for the few who might want to, I thought it would be fun and it’ll make my photos a lot nicer than if I used deco people. πŸ™‚

Now then, if you’d like to participate, here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Any mods, sliders, and so on are fine, but please include them with the download. If you export your sims from CAS, everything – including custom sliders – are in the download and it would just make my life much easier.
  • If you send them with default skin/eyes, they’ll be replaced with my defaults, so if you really want them to appear a certain way, add a non-default skin and contacts.
  • It would be lovely if you’d dress up your sim/sims for a formal occasion, as I’ve already dressed 20+ sims and I’m about to shed my mortal coil. I can dress them for you, however, if you don’t feel like it or they’re already uploaded somewhere without a formal outfit.
  • You can send the file as a .package or .sims3pack – either is fine as I’ll just unpack the .sims3pack myself. So long as all CC is included in the file, I’m happy!
  • EDIT: If the sim you send over is visibly supernatural (i.e. a vampire or werewolf with glowing eyes, a fairy with wings, etc.), I’d like your permission to turn them into normal sims. MVS doesn’t have supernatural elements and it would just look out of place. If you don’t like that, consider sending a different character.

I’m going to keep track of invitations here:

  1. LazySunJade
  2. TwinSimSkeletons
  3. SimNights
  4. Sempreviva
  5. LifeasaSim
  6. Magpie
  7. ReverieinSimlish
  8. AmyQueen
  9. Socallucyfan
  10. Lila Remonn

If you’d like to participate, all you have to do is say you’d like to and I’ll reserve you a spot. When you’re ready with your sim(s), you can send me a link either through the comments or, if you prefer to do it privately, send me a mail through my contact form or in private messages on Tumblr.

Well, that was it for now. I hope I can convince a few people to participate. Otherwise, this will be a very embarrassing display hahahah. πŸ˜€ Anyway, I hope everyone’s having a great time and I’ll see you in the next post. Which is tomorrow. Until then, cheers!

EDIT: Aaaand, I totally ran out of spots. Thank you to the people who are going to/have sent me Sims! I can’t wait to get everyone in game and see them. πŸ™‚ Some people have asked for a deadline and well… the chapter is going to be out on the 28th of September, so as you can see there’s lots of time. I’d say ideally I’d have all sims within the next two-three weeks, so I’ll have time to set things up. πŸ™‚


  • lazysunjade

    Oooooh! Me me me me!!!! I can send Laney if you’ll have her, if you prefer couples or single pringles lemme know!

    • NotJustaBook

      Yaaaaaaaay, I’d love to have her. <3 Basically it's up to you whether you add a plus-one. :) I have 20 seats all in all (lord help me it's good my machine is strong), so there's plenty of room. :)

  • twinsimskeletons

    If you have a preferred couple let me know. Otherwise I’ll send Echo and Lukas lookin’ fiiiine <3
    If I don't get it done this Sunday please do message me to remind me. I have a lot of work stuff on my mind haha, but I'd rather get this done and dusted early on πŸ˜€

    • NotJustaBook

      I’d love to have Echo and Lukas and I’ll cry over their beautiful pixel faces my babies. T____T Thank you Carys. <3 <3 I'll make sure to bug ya. :D

  • sempreviva

    Oooh, I can send a couple! <3 πŸ˜‰
    Would you'd like anyone specific? I can send whomever you dig, lol! Both dressed up for the occasion of course πŸ˜‰

  • audreyfld

    I would looove to have a sim appear! Dang it. I have to load up sims 3. Cause I KNOW who’d it would be. The sims 3 version of Ben was yummy! Sorry. I wish I could participate. I’ll just drool over everyone else’s sims. πŸ™‚

    • NotJustaBook

      Aaaw, well, that’s okay. Loading up ts3 is no mean feat – it takes forever on the best of days, lol. πŸ˜›

  • amyqueen

    Omg I may have, sort of, spoiled something for myself by clicking this, but my curiosity got the better of me and as a long time GinaxEnzo fan, I’m a happy camper πŸ˜‚πŸ˜­
    I’d love to send you Aislyn and Cailean if you’d like! I can aim to have them ready by the weekend, but just so I’m extra determined to run the game, do you have a deadline?
    The number of sims you’ll be handling sounds daunting, but I don’t doubt everything will turn out beautifully~ πŸ˜„ Now I’ve gotta catch up so I can enjoy the chapter properly when it drops, haha.

    • NotJustaBook

      He, he, he, welll, the only thing you’ve spoiled is that Gina and Enzo work it out long enough to get married, but I think that’s kind of a given anyway, lol. I would looove to have Aislyn and Cailean! <3 <3 I'd say you have a good two-three weeks to get them to me, even a month. The chapter won't be posted until the 28th of September. .)
      I'm a little wary, I admit, but I hope it'll turn out well. Thank you, Amy! πŸ™‚ <3

      • amyqueen

        With all of the endless teasing and drawn own moments between them – I know, ironic of me to comment on, hehe – I still can’t help but feel pleasantly surprised 😌
        Yay! I shall be sure to dress them accordingly~ Best of luck!

        • NotJustaBook

          Aaaaw, he, he, well, they do pull through despite my teasing. <3 I mean, I've been working on their kids for months lololol. πŸ˜›
          I can't wait to see how they look. <3 :D It'll be so exciting!

          • amyqueen

            Just popping in to let you know I haven’t forgotten!!! I’m hoping to have them done by this weekend πŸ˜… #sorryimaprocrastinator

          • NotJustaBook

            Ha, ha, that’s cool, Amy. <3 I think so long as I have them by the start of September, everything will be cool. ;)

          • amyqueen

            Me again, I’ve finally run the game to export them and 4 crashes later, they’re done *cries*
            I tried messaging you via tumblr but I’m a noob and my message couldn’t send for some reason πŸ™ƒ Do you have a preferred means of me sending them to you? Again, my bad for the late-ness!

          • amyqueen

            Hehe, so I scrolled back up and saw your contact form so I just sent them there πŸ˜‡ Let me know if there are any issues or if you didn’t get it as there was an error during my first attempt.

          • NotJustaBook

            It’s all cool, Amy. I got your e-mail! Thank you so much for sending them over I’m super excited to get everyone in the game! πŸ˜€ <3 <3 <3

  • socallucyfan

    I would love to send you a couple of sims. I have never done that before, so I am not sure the best way to do that. πŸ€”
    Also, when would you need them by?

    • NotJustaBook

      I would so love to have your characters. <3 You should be able to export your sims from CAS to a .sims3pack which you can then just send to me. I can't remember the exact buttons, but I can load up my game later and tell you.
      I've now added that it would be ideal to have them within two-three weeks, but strictly speaking I have up to a month since the chapter goes out on the 28th of September. πŸ™‚ Thank you!

    • NotJustaBook

      Pahahahahaha, seriously, before writing this post I did stare into the distance and think: Do I want to do this? And I guess I do. (If it wasn’t for your ReShade bug fix, I wouldn’t do it – I know I’ve mentioned it before but you SERIOUSLY saved my life).

      • Jowita

        Oh, before you do that: no matter what you do, don’t set this up as a party, your game is going to crush almost immediately (well, mine did), and it’s going to be a mess waiting for the guests to show up. Turn off Story Progression and make sure all guests have either quit their jobs or have days off. DO have the guests in seperate households. Don’t try to be a dumbass like me. I had 20+ Sims in each household, and my game ran like crazy, but when you try to put them all in one, your game probably won’t take it. If you remember a few representatives of each family, just use Master Controller to “make active” to make sure you stop these assholes from leaving. Oh, and save all the freaking time. After a few people dressed up, SAVE. It will *save* you. So, this is speaking from experience. But then you might have a better computer, but still with ReShade the game runs even worse, so I’d suggest the precautions anyway.
        Glad the ReShade bug fix works! It’s honestly a lifesaver!
        And, I sent you a little message on Tumblr regarding your offer 😁

        • NotJustaBook

          Thank you for the tips. πŸ˜‰ Ha, ha, I’ve never handled this many sims before, so I probably need it. Thankfully, my machine is a proper beast, but I do expect a few crashes here and there – ts3 is a dumpster fire, after all. My plan was pretty much to immediately force everyone into poses the moment they arrive and then never letting them get out of it. πŸ˜‰ I need all the help I can get! Thank you, dear. <3

    • NotJustaBook

      I’m afraid I’m all out of seats I’m so sorry. πŸ™ But thank you very much for the offer. I’ll keep you in mind another time. <3

    • NotJustaBook

      Aaah, I’m so sorry that you missed it, Kym. I would have loved to have a few of your characters. Another time, maybe? πŸ™‚ <3 <3
      I'm so stoked for the people who are attending - I already reaceived some gorgeous characters and I can't wait. <3
