Just a head's up[edit source]

Just so you know, female teenage Sims in The Sims 2 can't access the round glasses, but the other stages from child to elder females can. And the child male Sims can, of course. So you were mostly right about the female Sims being able to access the round glasses. ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 00:18, February 27, 2016 (UTC)

Some of your edits[edit source]

It's true that most elder ancestral Sims still have days left in their lifespan when they died, but a lot of them died from old age, so it hints that they had access to elixir of life at some point during their lives, because they shouldn't have that many days left in their lifespan.

Also it says in the articles that they may have had access to elixir of life at some point during their lives. That does not necessarily mean that they did have access. ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 12:06, September 29, 2017 (UTC)

I know, it's just that there is no evidence of how most of them died. But I guess if there is no evidence, I can't really prove it either. Mariaw (talk) 12:14, September 29, 2017 (UTC)
But still, even if they did use the elixir of life, their age bars don't make sense if they died of old age (which is unlikely some of them did, as many of their children are young enough for them to still be alive). And also, it's 100% speculation, so I don't really think it needs to be on the page. I am not disrespecting your opinions, as I'm fine either way. Mariaw (talk) 02:04, October 1, 2017 (UTC)
I don't really remember exactly who's idea it was to add the information to all those pages. But I know that it definitely belongs on some of the pages. ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 02:11, October 1, 2017 (UTC)
Okay, then. I respect your decision; I won't remove it anymore :) I'm terribly sorry if it seemed like I was being rude. Mariaw (talk) 02:18, October 1, 2017 (UTC)

Black-eyed Sims[edit source]

The black eyed Sims in The Sims 3 have a brown eye color in the template. Ѧüя◎ґ (talk) 21:14, September 12, 2018 (UTC)

RE: Create a Sim[edit source]

Nah, it's definitely light brown in my book. The brown hue is too strong for it to be blonde, while the yellow hue is overshadowed in favour of the brown hue. But it can be difficult to determine which probably explains why there is a debate between what passes as light brown and what passes off as blonde. Another technical reason why it should be considered light brown - though not the most important reason - is that there are already two default shades of blonde when looking at the default shades in The Sims 3. ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 03:04, September 16, 2018 (UTC)

I know that hair colour meant to be light brown, otherwise I wouldn't have changed it to say Light Brown rather than Chestnut. I just barely see any brown hues in it for whatever reason; to me, it looks more of a natural blonde than either of the preset blonde colours, and as such, I would consider it blonde (especially compared to brown hair in TS2 and light brown hair in TS4). But you do have a point, and I am willing to overlook my opinions to list it as light brown on Sim pages. Honestly, I can kind of see why there is a debate as to whether it is brown or blonde... Mariaw (talk) 04:37, September 16, 2018 (UTC)
Ah, okay then. I usually judge the colour of someone's hair based on the strength of the brown, red, and yellow hues, rather than how light or dark a colour is. If the red and yellow hues are strong, then I usually refer to the hair colour as orange/red. If the red hue is strong and the luminosity isn't very high, then I see it as being dark red. If the red and yellow hues are strong and the saturation isn't so high then I see it as being brown. If the red and yellow hues are strong and the luminosity is high but not too high, then I usually see it as being light brown, depending on how high the saturation is. If the yellow hue is stronger than the red hue but there's still enough brown hue so that it isn't yellow, then I see it as being blonde. Anything that's more or less partway in between orange/red and blonde, I consider to be strawberry blonde. But yeah, the lines between dark blonde and light brown can be barely visible at times. ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 06:11, September 16, 2018 (UTC)
Taking another look. the hair colour definitely has a strong brown hue. But in my personal view, it has a stronger blonde hue, which to me, makes it look dirty blonde (especially when viewed in-game). I definitely wouldn't list it as brown on fanon pages if I had any, but I would on official Sim pages. Mariaw (talk) 00:37, September 17, 2018 (UTC)
Looking at it in person, it kinda does look blonder than what the thumbnail shows, though I'm pretty sure it's still meant to be light brown. Maybe a blondish light brown at most. ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 04:15, September 17, 2018 (UTC)

hey sis[edit source]

remember me? --Icecream18 04:24, September 16, 2018 (UTC)

OMG, I remember you from the MySims wiki! How are you doing? Nice to hear from you again! Mariaw (talk) 04:40, September 16, 2018 (UTC)

Eye color[edit source]

Where do you get the information in the game files for the eye colors? Ѧüя◎ґ (talk) 07:07, December 9, 2018 (UTC)

From here: I know it's this eye colour because it wasn't in the unpatched base game, and the only "new" colour that has grey in the name is a hazel colour.
Also, I can understand your claim on it being grey; I considered it as grey for a while, and it even shares the same flag value with grey. It does have a bluish tone, and while not very strong, it is strong enough to to list it as dark blue. It's kind of like the light brown hair thing with The Sims 3. Mariaw (talk) 17:45, December 9, 2018 (UTC)

Nate Morita[edit source]

Perhaps it would be better to create a section on Nate Morita's talk page to discuss the issue. Ѧüя◎ґ (talk) 22:13, March 25, 2019 (UTC)

RE: This user again...[edit source]

I've blocked the user; thank you for the report and for helping to revert their edits. In the future, please report vandals to the administrators' noticeboard which is directed to all admins on the wiki. You may also join the Discord server and ask for an admin there (we have a channel there that's dedicated to vandalism reports). —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 15:20, September 4, 2019 (UTC)

Thanks[edit source]

Just wanted to say thanks for your contributions to the wiki. You've been a big help in correcting the eye colors and whatnot! Ѧüя◎ґ (talk) 11:40, September 12, 2019 (UTC)

  • Thank you, and you're welcome! I'm pretty fascinated by things like eye colour, so I've done a lot of research on things like that. Plus the info for a lot of Sims' eye colours on this wiki were incorrect or missing, and I don't like seeing incorrect information on articles. Mariaw (talk) 11:47, September 12, 2019 (UTC)
