Hey there, HeronX232, I'm Leaf! Yeah, I know. THE LEAF. Yeah, yeah, I know. Awesome, aren't I? Anyway, hey. Welcome to MySims Wiki. I just noticed you made an edit on the article Sylvia. Hm. Nice edit, I guess. Your first edit on this Wiki too, right? Thanks for trying to help out. I'm just here to say welcome to the Wiki. Glad you created an account. MySims Wiki totally rocks, right? I know.

I just wanna say hi and whatever and introduce some stuff. You know, talk to you about the basics. First of all, like, if you plan to help us out, you should check out the Stubs. Stubs are kinda like pages that suck right now. MySims Wiki isn't all perfect yet, you know. But you can help change THAT in to like, a myth if you help out. Or at least, get a bit closer to perfect? By like, an inch maybe? Even an inch adds up, right?

Secondly, you should pay attention to your edits and just preview them before you publish the changes, 'kay? If you're on MySims Wiki and editing alot, people are gonna start noticing you, because don't think we can't see what you're doing, man. We can just look at that handy "Latest Activity" box on the left. Or we can just look here. Yeah. So don't try anything crafty and like, vandalize or whatever, because it's not like we can't see it.

Also, you know there are people watching over and managing the Wiki, right? They make sure everything's okay and whatever. Kinda like peace keepers or something. If you didn't know, these people are the admins. They'll help fix up edits that seem wrong or just need a bit of rewording. They also help out the Wiki's content too, of course. They also are really awesome people (but not as awesome as me!). So they should be the first people you like, think of when you got a question! The four most active admins are Blanks, who's a really huge fan of mine and a good, funny friend, Mister Trubs, who's a nice guy, Dentface, who I'm pretty good friends with too, and Game-fanatic, who's really rad too and created the awesome "MySims Reality!" Remember you're not alone if you need any help. Even I need to ask people for help sometimes!

Uh...yeah. So I just wrote way more there than necessary. Oh well. Anyway, I hope you found my message useful or something. Like I said before, if you got questions, ask the admins. Or um, you could maybe even ask me for something. Contact me here. I'll answer as soon as possible. You can read more about me on my article or my MySims Wiki user page. Peace xx -- ★ Leaf (Talk) 14:52, 12 May 2011

Hey, welcome to the Wiki. Ohdear I saw you edit your user page, and um...you used a word that isn't allowed on the Wiki (hint: starts with a b). Cussing isn't allowed on here, so uh...yeah. It's alright, since you probably didn't know, but please remember for future reference.

I have 2 questions. One, when you create sims in MySims PC, depending on their loved interest, will they do the sitting on chair behavior when sitting? And, the other question is depending on their loved interest, will they start an activity? Example: Picnic for Tasty. 

Thank you. Ilikeit


Did someone say... MODS!?Edit

Agent Hatter

TALK – Did someone say... MODS!?
So, I've heard that you mod MySims PC. I've recently gotten back in to modding it. Would you be able to tell me what you did exactly to your own Sim? I'm interested in fiddling around and trying to get a Sim to show up in the hotel. Also, since we've found the textures of the clothes, hair, paint etc. Would all we need to be able to edit the textures be a program that allows us to export the .dds files to a folder, edit them, and then import them back in?

Ah, that clears things up. Also, a while back I tried figuring out a way to change the name that's displayed when a Sim's talking and the name of there house. Do you think there's a chance that we could do that in any way?

So, I tried changing Maria's name and house name. I changed the text parts that had her name and her house name, but when I talked to her in the game, she was still Maria. Am I doing something wrong?

TALK – SimGuruJill
So I was watching a video about The Sims 4 Creators Camp and when they were interviewing Jill Johnson (somebody working on TS4) she said that she worked on the original MySims! I've found her SimGuru Twitter here, so when we've progressed a bit more with The Big Mod, she could be somebody to tell about it I guess?

Relationship Book IconsEdit

So i was thinking - what if instead of the regular relationship book icons in The Big Mod, we have art of their head, kinda like the ones in the game files? Just an idea but I though I should let you know.

Agent Hatter
TheHatter – I like hats... That's why I'm 'TheHatter'!
TALK – Maybe
Maybe I could try to do it? Should be too hard seeing as it would just be a profile pic, not to mention a scarce amount of shading. Plus I have way too much time on my hands.



Agent Hatter
TheHatter – I like hats... That's why I'm 'TheHatter'!
TALK – Beebee's hair
So I've been editing textures again and I'm pretty sure Beebee's hair can't be edited. I can edit the version without bunny ears, but not with them or the tiara. Any ideas?



Agent Hatter
TheHatter – I like hats... That's why I'm 'TheHatter'!
TALK – I can't art
So I tried replicating the head art for profile images and let's just say I realise why they didn't go with that. Either we'll have to find someone that has a lot of time on their hands and can draw pretty well or we'll have to go back to the original.


Agent Hatter

Hey, Heron, I'm Julia. I used to come here a lot, I don't really come here anymore. I came on one day and I saw one of your blogs about The Big Mod.

First of all, I just want to say that it's super cool that you've got that project going. I've been silently watching it for a while and I'm pretty impressed.

Especially how you managed to change the color of one hairstyle (the big pigtails). I was kinda wondering how you did that--I got s3pe and looked into the files, and changed the color of one of the dds eye files--but the changes didn't take in the game. I'm wondering if I had to edit anything else? I  wanted to know how to go about doing it. Thanks! --Julia "Let there be song to fill the air" 02:13, July 15, 2015 (UTC)

Thanks very much!

MySimsPhoto Raleigh 332415116 Although I have one question to ask--the changes only worked iin the CAS, out of the CAS they look the same as before I modded them. Is there something I missed, or does it just not show outside of the CAS?--Julia "Let there be song to fill the air" 14:36, July 15, 2015 (UTC)

I did do just that.

I wasn't aable to find anything else, but thank you anyway! I really appreciate it. :) --Julia "Let there be song to fill the air" 21:41, July 15, 2015 (UTC)

FROO-OO-OO-OOT Edit

hello everyone i'm not dead thank you i know you're all so relieved

so i noticed that you reuploaded all the buttons on the home page linking to the games in the series, and i was just wondering if you had admin approval to do that? it is the front page after all, and any changes made to it should probably have admin approval first. --I'm random.I'm a dude.101 16:36, July 23, 2015 (UTC)

Just so you know, I like your buttons better than the old ones but I couldn't comment on the blog because comments are disabled. --Icecream18 23:49, July 23, 2015 (UTC)

Hey, I wanted to say thanks for doing so much for the wiki. Blush I know it's demanding being a modder, yet you continue to contribute so much outside of the Big Mod. I also know we haven't had the best relationship (if any at all) so I want to formally apologize. Hopefully this can symbolize a new blank slate.

It's super effective! Pika Follow Oh, wait...

Something like that would be good. Rawr Although I may be a bit off-schedule if we decide to do it soon. As I'm sure you read I don't have access to an image scanner and I don't have nor desire to use painting programs, and even if I did it would still be a chore to think of ideas (especially ones relevant to the wiki.)

It would be fun, though. Ilikeit

Hey Heron, this is probably a stupid request but you're the only person I know who's good with modding <slash>and I don't annoy the shit out of</slash>

I'm trying to get a sound pack to work in Team Fortress 2 (a free game I downloaded only for the sound pack X,D ) but it never takes effect in-game. Any chance you'd be kind enough to help? (Assuming TF2 and MySims modding are similar)

Basically to do this I go to Team Fortress 2 > tf > custom and as advised by the Internet I create a folder called my_custom_stuff for the sound pack to rest comfortably in. Then I convert my_custom_stuff into a .vpk file, rename it to ggrumpsover900, and place it back into a new my_custom_stuff folder.

I've tried placing that latest folder in both workshop (originally the only subfolder after tf) and even placing another folder under my_custom_stuff with the same name. Yet the sound pack doesn't load Rage

I'd be very pleased if you had any tips for me, I don't know if you work with sound packs/etc. though so please forgive me if this is ridiculous Sweat

hey man, what's shakin'?

i recently picked up MySims again after many years of having it sitting on my shelf. compared to what i've been playing recently, it's pretty shitty. but i've got faith in it, and if i ever install origin again, i might blow twenty bucks on the pc port of MySims as opposed to Battlefield 4 or something.

i got two questions: one, do you have a steam or skype? i'd like to get in touch. two, how's your "big mod" coming along? i think MySims was lacking and only a valiant team of modders could bring this game back from the grave. we're gonna have to make the MySims equivalent of Project Nevada in order to set shit straight again.

anyways, this is a cute little wiki you fellas have got set up here, and i might set up shop here one of these days. as a person who usually plays obscure or old-school games like DOOM and Space Funeral, it's embarassing to say that MySims is one of my guiltiest pleasures.

but maybe someday this franchise won't be sitting in the shadow of the infinitely superior more well-known Animal Crossing series. maybe it'll rise from its grave as something more than the world's greatest furniture building simulator. maybe we can build a better MySims. maybe we can scare the bigwigs at Electronic Arts so hard they shit their pants (that's what they deserve for destroying Bullfrog Productions).

christmas break is coming up. if this isn't just a phase and i haven't moved on from MySims by then, hit me up . let's bend and twist this eight-year-old shell of a game into the town simulator that EA never had the balls to make.

tl;dr: if you feel like modding the everloving shit out of this game with me, give me a call.

Hello, HeronX232:

How's the progress of the unlockables in MySims Kingdom? If you haven't done anything about it, that's fine. I can try doing it myself, but the game is too nostalgic for me to play it normally. :P We can also discuss what other things we can add in the Wiki to enrich it and make it better. Tell me what do you have in mind as well!

-Christian

Hey there, Heronx232:

It's ok if you haven't done any progress on the MySims Kingdom unlockables. I was thinking about playing the game again. I already completed the game with a female character, but one day, I'll try to complete the game with a male character. As for the other games... Well, it depends if I'm ready to play them! I'm also looking forward to The Big Mod. I can help provide ideas for it as well! I can play Kingdom on Dolphin Emulator if I want to play MySims Kingdom on the PC for better quality and see what I can do.

In other words, I might have plans on converting most of the unlockables from MySims Kingdom to MySims PC! Isn't that amazing! But I might need some help with it... :P Anyways, good luck on The Big Mod and take care!


-Christian

Question about moddingEdit

Qubit - Bounce
Qubit – Hi HeronX232, how's it going?
TALK – I still really don't like Preston.
Hello.

I was wondering, how do you mod MySims PC? Which software do you use? Sorry if I seem invasive, I just got the game 4 months ago and I have no experience modding whatsoever, so I just wanted to ask how it's done.


03:13, December 23, 2016 (UTC)


I followed every direction on the tutorial. I then tried a basic mod, but when I try to save it, I get a message saying "Access denied". I hate Windows 10 Is there any way to fix this problem?

Thanks. Luma ( Message wallContributions) 19:44, December 26, 2016 (UTC)

TBM questionsEdit

Heya, I saw the TBM direct a while back and my love for MySims quickly grew back recently, I was wondering if I could help with anything, specifically character design. I'm an artist, basically, and I'd love to design some characters for my favorite game, also, hate asking this, when's the demo release?

Question about the Lua Test LevelEdit

Hey! I'm pretty new to modding MySims for PC, but I was wondering about this Lua Test Level on The Cutting Room Floor (tcrf.net/MySims_(Windows), I've also seen other .world files and I'm not sure how to get the Test Level to load, do you know how to possibly do this?

Many Thanks!

Hi again, Thanks for replying! I did what you did and it worked :)

Oh, and I was also able to replace the main menu music which was in Sfx.package :) I released a video which is on my page if you're interested! I'd love to help out on The Big Mod if I can if it's still on-going, and I can't wait for it! :)

Emulator and Decompile QuestionsEdit

Hey, Heron! I've been working on my own side project of getting the MySims games over onto my PC to play with Dolphin. I saw some edits you made to pages like Mira Cull with some source code snippets for MySims Kingdom. I'm curious, how did you decompile the files? I've been trying to figure it out myself. What'd you use to RE the .package files? That's the only avenue I can think of. Is there anything else I should be doing? --Dentface (talk) 10:53, September 27, 2018 (UTC)
