ok so sims 3 is driving me nuts right now because apparently i can only play in EA worlds (or very tiny worlds), so i’m going to take a break.  probably.  i mean maybe tomorrow i’m gonna suddenly be like “I WANNA PLAY THE GERARDS” but also it’s a lot of commitment, so for now i’m gonna go on a pause from that save.  sorry :(  i’m a little bummed because i have a lot of exciting plans for everyone, but i’ve literally spent the last week just remaking the towns i’m moving them to over and over again, and it’s not really that fun.  

buuut, i’m getting sims medieval :) so if i’ll probably posts some screens of that, and once i figure it out i might try to make a story out of it!  i think this’ll be preferable for me right now, because there’s no cc to worry about and i think it’s pretty much just gameplay. 

ugh unfortunately I have a Mac so that won’t be possible. :( I guess I’ll try a different world for now and see if it stops. 

thank you for all of your help!!

is it a bad sign that i see this when i open up riverview redux?
eventually it goes away, so i think it’s just the textures taking a weird long time to load… but it could also be what’s causing my game to freak out and crash?
(this is after reinstalling redux with the alternative methods, but it happened before too)

yes! i’m not super hopeful, but i’m attempting to install it through wine. i didn’t think it was going to work, but then some stuff started loading - it wouldn’t get past a certain point though. i’m gonna try again. if it does work, it’s obviously not going to run as well as it would on a windows, since i’m basically trying to set it up like how TS3 runs on a mac.
