Thank you[edit source]

Thank you for your contributions, particularly for the Garden Heights sim articles! Ѧüя◎ґ (talk) 15:31, February 12, 2018 (UTC)

Thank you! I'm planning on adding the sims from Arbor Falls either later today or tomorrow. Gvaudoin (talk) 16:32, February 12, 2018 (UTC)
Thanks so much for making these articles. It's great seeing another user making articles for Sims from the Sim 2 era stories games, especially since I only have life stories so I cannot make any articles of Sims from Pet Stories myself! :D ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 04:40, February 14, 2018 (UTC)

RE: About the Sims from the Sims Pet Stories[edit source]

There are a total of 27 default Maxis face templates, and one hidden default Maxis face template. Pretty much all the townies from The Sims 2, Life Stories, Pet Stories, and Life Stories use default faces, except for Bella Goth (Strangetown), and most of the downtownies from Nightlife. Ian Curtin and Zeeshan Despret use the 25th Maxis face template called "Archcsla". This page may help you to tell each of the faces apart, except the 28th Maxis face template "Archalien", being hidden, isn't shown on the page. But the 27 face templates which aren't hidden, are. ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 22:13, February 15, 2018 (UTC)

Yeah, they all have names. You can see their names by doing ctrl+shift+c and then typing in "boolprop testingcheatsenabled true" and then hitting enter, then going into Create a Sim, and then using Shift+N. That activates debug mode, and when you hover the mouse over each of the clothes, hairstyles, face templates etc, it should tell you what they are called. ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 23:42, February 15, 2018 (UTC)

Tricou family image[edit source]

I appreciate the changes you've made to the Tricou family image here, but would it be alright if I were to change it back to the original version of the image? Or maybe I could upload another copy of the image. ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 22:47, February 25, 2018 (UTC)

That one you showed me on another wiki was used on this wiki as well, but I removed it, because Gvaudoin isn't wearing her canon hairstyle, and Nylissit doesn't wear a necklace by default, so I uploaded an image that displayed them in their canon appearances. ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 23:21, February 25, 2018 (UTC)
Yeah, the quality of the image you showed me just now is about as good as the one that I uploaded. Your previous uploads were in poorer quality, probably because you had your Sim/Object Detail settings set to low. Am I correct? I have everything set to the highest quality, but I have my video settings set to medium, because the sound is muted when I have it set to high, and medium quality seems to be good enough anyway. ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 23:57, February 25, 2018 (UTC)
I'm not sure to be honest. In some ways I'd still prefer to keep the original, but I guess it wouldn't be too much of a problem to have the most recent one that you presented. ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 00:25, February 26, 2018 (UTC)
On second thought, I have no problems with you changing it. ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 00:26, February 26, 2018 (UTC)
Nah, it's fine. You can re-upload it under the same name. ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 00:30, February 26, 2018 (UTC)

TS4 Sim images[edit source]

Hey! I've seen that you have been adding pages about Sims from TS4 and its content packs. It is really appreciated, but I would like to say one thing. Could you possibly please use black backgrounds for the Sim portraits? They are preferred that way in here and would ease up the workload. Thanks. - SimDestroyer (talk) 18:10, November 27, 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for uploading all of the images! They're a great addition to the wiki. Ѧüя◎ґ (talk) 23:14, February 27, 2019 (UTC)
That means a lot to me! I'm always happy to improve the wiki! :-) —Gvaudoin 💬 16:25, February 28, 2019 (UTC)

RE: Happy Christmas![edit source]

Aw thank you so much, that's so kind of you to say! ♥️
With your comment problem, it should work if you hit the "reply" button on the first comment. Now it'll look like you're replying to yourself as you're writing the comment, but when you send it, it should appear underneath my comment! :)

Thank you! I hope you're having great holidays aswell and I wish you a great 2019! 🎉
- KailynnKat(talk/fanon) 23:14, December 26, 2018 (UTC)

Thank you so much for your kind words and also for your tip regarding the replies! I didn't know that but I'll make use of it in the future! —Gvaudoin 💬 22:45, December 27, 2018 (UTC)

RE: copy-pasting and consensus[edit source]

In terms of merging two pages, simply copying and pasting the content is not allowed, because the CC BY-SA license we use requires that attribution be provided to the authors of the text. The easiest way is to provide a link to the page you copied the text from in the edit summary of your edit. This is extremely important, since if you simply copy and paste the text without providing attribution, it is assumed to be your work (which isn't the case), which is a pretty serious violation of the license.

As for consensus, I don't see a consensus on the talk page; I just see one comment nodding their head about the proposed change and two additional comments that haven't been addressed yet. That's not consensus. There should be more input. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 02:52, June 4, 2019 (UTC)

Giant Will's head[edit source]

The version you uploaded last year seem to have bigger eyes than the one I have (which is just TS1MM GiantWill with TSO Will's eyes). Where did you get it? My Makin' Magic folder only has the "sleepy" version :( -- Ryo205 18:09, June 4, 2019 (UTC)

Discord[edit source]

I noticed you haven't joined the wiki's discord server yet. It'd be great to have another wikian there. :) Ѧüя◎ґ (talk) 00:15, June 6, 2019 (UTC)

Small correction[edit source]

I found out the "TSO Will Wright" (and by extension, the Makin' Magic one) are both based on a promotional set of skins by Maxis (for an EBWorld promotion), as seen here.

The other one with weird eyes (from the Spanish Sims Wikia) is probably a fanmade edit by someone who didn't even know official versions existed. -- Ryo205 20:32, July 11, 2019 (UTC)

TheSimsCharacterSet.exe[edit source]

Since the *.exe didn't work well for you, I've uploaded the extracted skins for Sim File Share. This set consists of 7 heads and 9 bodies (including Will Wright and Luc Barthelet). Previews included.

Link >>

The EA Sports outfit and Sid Meier's skins were shipped with The Sims Complete Collection, but all the others were left behind.

Please tell me if there are any problems. -- Ryo205 21:26, July 12, 2019 (UTC)

RE: Sims with gender customization[edit source]

Sorry I didn't see your post sooner; I'm not sure how it slipped past me. I feel like we should have some sort of a community vote over this idea before we go ahead and make the category. - ✨AireDaleDogz✨ (talk) 17:20, October 26, 2019 (UTC)
