That game is awesome, especially the Showtime part. Great stress reliever when you hit the buses, lol. =D

Good ol' pokemon go. Went to a park with my dad and there were 3 pokestops all together and incense (attracts pokemon to the stops for 30 min) guaranteed at the stops. Perhaps 70 people or so were seen at the pokestopsimage.pngImage Enlarger

Instinct will be my pick whenever I get around to it. It's like the Hufflepuff of Pokemon Go. =)

Meanwhile I found out the issue with my Sims 3 game and got my store stuff back, yay! I still have to rebuild the Help ! house since the save files are still botched, but now I can rebuild it quicker, smaller, more efficient than ever and with all expansions and content working.

Not to mention Late Night adds the band bits like the drums/bass/guitar skills. I consider it a win. a-hard-days-night-ringo-15

Sure.

Problem with Sims 3 is how slow it is. I could watch the original Lord of the Rings trilogy in the time it takes to start up a game.

You're not kidding, lol. It's a very graphics-intensive game, not to mention all the Sim and object data. It's a beast. If only there were a way to disable the loading of *everything* when you go to pick a pre-made Sim, since I *only* use the custom ones I make and would like them at the forefront always.

Construction is underway for Help House 2.0. It's going to have more textures, because I like textures. Ignore the front wall, that may be moved a bit and the doors and windows still have to be added. The numerous jogs on the back wall between the sections is kind of impossible to get 100% accurate (I'm doing that part first), and the back half of Paul's and George's sections, aside from where George's bed is, is a mystery to me. Are there any scenes in the move where this is shown?

I may also tone the colors down a bit more, since the Sims need to stand out more and the surroundings are about as cartoonish as the characters themselves! It'll also have some more up-to-date furnishings.

There is still the problem with John's bed, which must remain on the floor below. The game does not allow platforms around a bed, a bed that is visible from anywhere but the basement it's in, or a bed in a hole. That bed is the ONLY reason I have to build this whole thing on a second story. Might as well include the bathrooms and shower down there since they aren't seen in the movie anyway.

It is set in the Late Night city Bridgeport. Apparently this expansion adds vampires. Not sure if I will deal with those yet. When it's complete I will share the lot.

If I get tired of house building I may look into making that Yoko Ono sim. Not sure what her personality is like so I may have to do some research and make some guesstimates.

That would fit so well....However I don't feel like throwing more money at EA just yet after this issue with Late Night. ^^; After my construction thing here, I may make a Yoko sim anyways, just for fun.

Construction on Help House 2.0 is coming along nicely, albeit a bit slow. There is still the issue with John's bed, which is the only thing requiring me to build an entire story dedicated to it. The game does not allow a platform around a bed, a bed on the floor, a bed in the basement that is visible from anywhere but the basement it's in, or a bed in a hole. I could maybe theoretically stick a bed in a hole, but John wouldn't be able to access it, and the thought of denying Sims access to a bed makes me a bit sad after seeing Ringo passed out on the floor after his dumpster diving adventure.

So far, in the house...

First floor - John's bedroom, the facilities

Second Floor - Main living space, kitchen, beds

Third Floor - Apple Rooftop, just because.

Pictures, soon. Update: Pictures!

I know there aren't any front staircases yet, it's not accurate but I'll fix it eventually, I hope.

Indeed. It started out okay but they really failed at optimising the load times when they added a few xpacs.

I haven't even bothered with putting Sims 3 onto the new laptop.

Though Sims 4 is already showing similar speed problems. I hate it when I load up a half-dozen things for my lovely little lady, Pink Floyd, to do, and the game has her pausing for ten-fifteen minutes (game time) between moving from one to the other, while other times it flows freely.

I must admit I have been using Sims 2 a bit lately since they gave the complete collection away free on Origin a while back - purely for the speed it runs at.

Paul was playing his keyboard with flat hands since the fingers refused to animate at first, lol.  Not until I installed Pets a ways back did I notice random freezing of sim people and sim pets. As if it had to load up MORE stuff than what it does in the beginning. Seriously, the game is a memory hog. But it's so much fun when you get it up and running ^.^

Scratch all the above posts. What I've decided to do for the sake of less loading time and accuracy, and my sanity..... is go back to the drawing board. Literally. I even mapped out the walls on graph paper. This is gonna be so much easier and look much better outside as well.

But the Apple rooftop is still going up there as it was.

Sorry John, you're getting a regular bed. The extra floor just isn't worth it. ;P

Guess that means no basement organ for Paul, either. Not that that worked either, anyway. *Shrug*

Update: It's finally shaping up! Downstairs it's 1965, on the roof it's totally 1969.

Thinking about video games, am I the only person who thinks that there was more potential for the Rock Band Track Pack series of games because if they revamp those, I hope they do Rock Band Track Pack: A Night At The Opera.

Haha, in the last 12 hours or so, 43 people have grabbed Ringo's drum set and 22 people have downloaded the little stuffed blue horse. I'm not quite sure what to think. It makes me happy though, that there are most likely still a good number of Beatles fans that happen to play The Sims 3, I guess?
