Challenge Eleven: Stella Terrano
Stella feels as though her colleagues would take her much more seriously if her freckles didn’t look like multicolored stars. They would actually take her far more seriously if she’d just stop equating Mr. Darcy to every single god damn Physics class, but the stars are pretty distracting, too.

this was a great blog. I can’t believe I didn’t update this blog more. why did you all let me do that.
so today, i did something i had never done before: i bootcamped my computer, specifically so i could play the sims 2 again with all EPs.
it didn’t take too long to do; the process itself was harmless, albeit long, and i actually kind of was getting excited to have windows capabilities on my computer again. i missed stupid stuff like ms paint, or just the general look and feel of windows 7.
then i ran into an issue. now, the downloading of the sims 2 ultimate edition was like…comically fast, and opening the game saw some of the speediest opening i had ever seen. i had loaded veronaville, and then la fiesta tech, on a new game, in under eight minutes.
then, pretty happy, i decided to check the cpu
IN RETROSPECT, I COULD HAVE SEEN THIS COMING.
now i’m no linguist with a machine, but if one video game and google chrome could do this, i literally couldn’t imagine what would happen after a few hours of gameplay.
obviously, bad experiment. i’d delete windows off of my computer, sigh wistfully at the sims 2, and just wait until i get home to my PC this thanksgiving, right?
you see, totallymaxis is having its college thing right now. know who i haven’t seen submitted yet?
no stella terrano
this is literal fucking injustice. who doesn’t love stella terrano?? she’s one of the only premade aliens you can play. she’s a physics major who loves reading, studying, and cookies. COOKIES!!! she’s ADORABLE!!
i had to rectify this. i had to download enough CC to make my game look half-decent, and then take a picture of her
and i did it
every piece of custom content you’re seeing in the image above is every piece of custom content in my game, right now. the pose, the clothes, the makeup…all of it i downloaded specifically to take this picture.
i had so little data left on my computer that my heart was literally pounding while i was opening stella’s lot. setting her up to pose felt like waiting for the executioner to put on his gloves. but i got it. i got it. i got the shot.
but you’re probably thinking, pucksummerdream, you’re thinking, that isn’t the best shot you could possibly make, right? the pose is making her sweater clip, and you can barely see that clipboard in her other hand.
well you see, the second i took that screenshot, the game completely crashed.
the dying breaths of my windows’ short-lived stint as a boarder on my computer was used up taking a picture i don’t even really like of stella terrano.
so did i submit it?
fuck yeah i fucking submitted it. sure the picture was awful, but it’s not about that. it was the blood, the sweat, the tears, the perfectly placed and compressed custom content, the way i could feel my computer threatening to explode when stella went up to the mirror to put on her makeup.
so in a few hours or days when pucksummerdream’s stella terrano picture drops on totallymaxis.tumblr.com, you fucking remember this. you remember that this very well may have made my computer explode and murder everyone in my dorm.
this is the way the world ends. not with a bang, but an adorable alien college student.
alright @the person who told me to bootcamp my computer, i finally, finally did and………….
i’m gonna try it out, but i’m this far not too impressed by how bootcamped windows 7 is handling the game’s look, and also how the fucking game took a majority of the GB on the windows partition.
it IS weird playing this game on my mac, also.
nah, never did. shame too, i was so ready to make a madoka cosplay picture
Loz Kaye, the leader of the Pirate Party, a UK pressure group which seeks to legalise file sharing, was ambivalent about EA’s anti-piracy measure.
“It looks like EA have been using their effort in the wrong place,” he told Newsweek. “If they had used their creativity on the actual game, Sims 4 might have got better reviews. Making a great gaming experience is what will make people part with their cash, not ‘pirate catching’ gimmicks.”

Does it at least have all the EPs that were released for Mac?
yes, but the fact they gave literally all the eps away for free on PC is making me bitter
