PSA: About Animations and NPCs

Since this is a question I’ve been asked a few times, and also something I’ve seen come up on other sites:

None of my animated objects are controlled by NPCs!

Contrary to what seems to be popular belief, animated objects don’t always require an NPC to run; whether they do depends on the type and complexity of the object and not just on whether or not it’s animated. Objects that move around the lot, like Rebecah’s farm animals, usually need an NPC to work, but simple animated objects like mine, that rotate/swing/rock in place, do not.

But if any object of mine did spawn an NPC (which I say again, they do NOT), I promise you it would say so very, very clearly in the upload post. I know there are creators out there who like to foist undisclosed features upon their downloaders, but I’m not that kind of creator.

2016 Fishmas Gifts

Fishmas Gifts 2016

Feel like some more candles? πŸ˜›

These are my gifts for the 2016 Fishmas Advent Calendar at I know not everybody frequent that site, so I’m going to share them here as well, now that the creators of the gifts at long last have been revealed over there. πŸ™‚

I actually made four gifts for the Advent calendar, but the fourth one, which was fulfilling a wish, will be in a separate post. (You’ll understand why when you see it.)

You’ll find a download button after each gift, but there will also be one at the very end of the post, in case you want to download all of them in one swoop.

Merry Fishmas! :mrgreen:

Well, ’tis the season and so I wanted to make something nice and Christmas-y for my Sims (since they have all been nice this year). To me, nothing says “Christmas” like a Christmas tree – so I made them one. Sort of. I made a Christmas tree lamp. πŸ˜€

To add some extra holiday cheer, when it’s turned on this little table lamp spins slowly clockwise and its lights blink discreetly. And yes, of course they are plumbbob lights! πŸ˜‰
