Hi there, my name is Ella, and I have had a constant headache for 14 years. I am 26 years old…. (Sat, 18 May 2024)
horusmenhosetix: Doneer aan 14 Years Of Constant Headaches, georganiseerd door Ella Collis Hi there, my name is Ella, and I have had a constant headache for 14 years. I am 26 years old. Painkillers do not work. The pain is caused by a Pineal Cyst. Pineal cysts are relatively common, 1-2% of the population has one, but it is not common that they cause symptoms. Few doctors on this planet even believe they do cause symptoms. I need Pineal Cyst Removal Surgery if I am ever to experience a pain free day again. The only hospital that offers this surgery in my country, England, is deciding whether it wants to bear the risk of offering this surgery after I was on the waiting list for 6 months. I have found two European surgeons who can perform this surgery and believe I am a good candidate for it. Needless to say, I, being a disabled unemployed person, cannot afford the surgery. I should be able to have it free on the NHS but it is not routinely offered so they won’t fund me getting it abroad. I am suicidally depressed because of my chronic pain. Doctors don’t care about this cyst because it’s not a threat to my life. Anti-depressants can only dull the pain so much. Can people please reblog this, no matter how small your blog is, so that it can get traction?

I may not post much these days, but I am busy working on my African fabrics collection! I still have a ton of images waiting to be turned into patterns! I’m aiming for a release in June for Juneteenth. Seems like it is going to be a very big collection… It’s a lot of fun to work with these bold designs and colors!

What if I say I learnt a way to make ts3 run even smoother The game is currently running on 2.5+gb… (Thu, 02 May 2024)
criisolate: criisolate: What if I say I learnt a way to make ts3 run even smoother The game is currently running on 2.5+gb of RAM and 5+gb of VRAM… This is insane. I’ll explain what I did below, before making any change please back up relevant files and make sure you have a decent computer (or at least a good video card, mine is Nividia RTX 2060 6GB). This method was initially posted by Foul Play in Discord, so a big thanks to them!!! We all know that The Sims 3 is a 32-bit old game that can only use less than 4GB of RAM, making it prone to crash due to memory overflow. Moreover, the game loads some texture memory into RAM, resulting in high RAM usage and low VRAM usage. Even the most powerful computers can’t leverage their advantages. Therefore, what we need to do is to allow the game to fully utilize the performance of modern computers, while reducing RAM usage and increasing VRAM usage. Download and install dxvk. Copy the d3d9.dll from the x32 folder to your bin folder (where you installed smooth patch and reshade/gshade). If you have installed reshade/gshade before, you will be prompted to overwrite files, please choose yes. If reshade/gshade stops working after entering the game, reinstall reshade/gshade, and choose Vulkan instead of d3d9 when installing. If you are not familiar with dxvk, it is recommended to check out this post (the 7th page). Download the dxvk.conf file and place it in the same folder. Open this file with Notepad, delete all content, and add the following text. The first line must be added, and the second and third lines are used to set vertical synchronization and frame rate lock (It’s just my personal preference, you can set it up based on the documentation on GitHub). d3d9.textureMemory = 1 d3d9.presentInterval = 1 d3d9.maxFrameRate = 75 At this point, you can enter the game and observe if a TS3W.dxvk-cache file is generated in the bin folder. If so, dxvk is successfully installed. After entering the SIMS 3, the game settings will be reset, so you need to back up the original settings or readjust them directly. For me, simply installing dxvk converted the game’s RAM usage of over 300MB to VRAM usage. The Sims 3 became more stable. It’s harder for it to reach 3.7GB RAM usage and then crash. Next, open your GraphicsRules.sgr, search and find two lines seti MemCacheBudgetValue, which determine the size of the game’s VRAM Cache. The values behind represent 200MB (209715200) and 160MB (167772160) respectively. Modify these two values to larger numbers. You can choose according to your computer and then have a test in the game. You can check how much RAM and VRAM the game is using in the Task Manager after modification. If you don’t install dxvk, increasing these values will make your RAM usage higher! I set MemCacheBudgetValue to -1 during testing, which represents no limit. Before using dxvk and modifying GraphicsRules.sgr, the game only used less than 1.5GB of VRAM. But now, the game is using over 5GB of VRAM after 2 sims day playing. However, RAM usage continues to increase at the same time and does not remain at a certain size as I expected. Maybe MemCacheBudgetValue should be set to an appropriate size to prevent the game from eventually using over 3.7GB+ of RAM. After applying all these changes, with 6GB of mods and all graphics settings set to the highest, my game now runs as smooth as butter. I recommend you to try these steps above. Results may vary from person to person, so please share your test results in the comments^^

Personal update (Wed, 01 May 2024)
I have not done a personal update for quite some time, so here it is! Today, I dreamed that it was suddenly the 1st of December and I had nothing prepared for my advent calendar yet and was feeling in over my head and thinking “Do I really want to do this again?!” Maybe my brain telling me to actually prepare patterns ahead of time this year and to start early? I’ll keep that in the back of my mind. I actually finally got Sims 4 running (let’s see how long until the next patch breaks everything, maybe I have a few days left). I only want to play with tons of mods, which break all the time and are a pain to update, so I only do that procedure once or twice a year. When I actually get to play, I really like to immerse myself for a while until it is all over again. The funny thing is that I actually have fun playing because so many aspects are new to me (having fun in TS4 is almost unheard of, but apparently it can really happen ). Building and CAS are so much fun too! I’m not exactly a gameplay blog and not sure how many of you want to see TS4 on here anyway, so I doubt there will be many pics. I get super frustrated whenever I try to make sims in TS3 CAS, I guess I do not have some of y'all skills or the right CC at times (or do not know how to use it properly). In Sims 4, everything can be solved with a few skin overlays and I feel the weird head shape proportion thing that is so off in Sims 3 does not apply there, which makes everything easier. I do miss patterns though I have been pretty preoccupied with other hobbies lately, I’ve been on a serious style rediscovery with my best friend, we discovered this style system called the Style Key and it is all about giving yourself permission to try out new things and your personal needs when choosing styles, which is really refreshing to all the systems that tell you “you cannot wear that with your body type!” So I’ve been trying things I did not actually dare to wear, like cute/playful outfits in pastel shades. I may wear the styles now that teenage me was too shy to wear and it feels great! I do not care anymore what other people may think about it. I recently discovered those colorful chunky plastic rings which surprisingly look good on me. I always felt like I could never really make jewelry work on me, and tried the tiniest minimalist pieces because everything felt “too much”, but I have never tried the other extreme, the big chunky stuff because I told myself “that could never work”. Turns out that trying out stuff instead of limiting myself feels really great and yields surprising results! And I feel more confident too because my outfits are fun and make me happy, and I am more relaxed if I feel happy too. In the Style Key system, I think I’m a Ruby (left-down quadrant) and I think the archetype “Spicy Girl Next Door” fits pretty nicely for me. The biggest takeaway for me is the realization that outfits have to “feel right” for me, not for anybody else and I do not dress to please anyone, but to help me feel good in my own skin and take into account my comfort needs and feelings on that day when I choose what to wear. The Style Key is not a system that tells you exactly what to wear, but it helps you figure out what you need your style to do for you and go from there. It’s a bit daunting to get into because it is really so different from other systems and includes rather abstract theory/unusual concepts that are not really that intuitive, but the videos on the youtube channel really help to explain those concepts. I also still work on some Python projects, but they’re still a long way off from amounting to anything. But it’s where I can use my problem-solving skills and just tinker around. I just really need something to bite my teeth into every now and then and that is perfect for it.

Hey there! You probably saw screenshots of the African patterns I was working on at the time. The collection is not finished yet, but I've been meaning to get back into creating patterns. Your ask has inspired me to work on that particular collection again, as the patterns are also very fun to make. I hope I can get it ready soon! Here's a pic of the new patterns I made last night:

I’ve never felt more comfortable in a community than on tumblr, you can make genuine connections… (Sun, 07 Apr 2024)
sim-songs: id-element0: presentlydean: online communities are so strange because people slip away so easily. you can be on here for years, folding people you’ve never met into the fabric of your daily life, and then they disappear, leaving only ghost posts scattered across tumblr behind. or their blog stays dormant, for weeks, months, years, until you’re only still following them because you remember that they love sunflowers or they were kind to you when they didn’t have to be or the last thing they posted was sad and raw and you still worry about them sometimes. and sometimes they come back when you least expect it, years later, even, and there’s this sudden rush of relief like there you are, there you are, even though you barely knew each other. there’s a strange kind of love to it. i don’t know you and i want to hold your hand across miles and time zones and oceans. i can still see the imprint of you in this community you left. you don’t think anyone will notice or care when you’re gone, but we notice and we care and we wish you well. i hope you’re all okay out there. i hope the sun is shining on your face and you are breathing deeply. i miss you. As an addition, not only the ones that disappeared but also the ones who are generally lurking or not as active as they were anymore for reasons, I hope that you’ll find solace in things that make you smile and find strength in things you do. Hang in there. This made me feel a lot of comfort, for my own absences and others’ throughout my years here. It can sometimes be very meaningful and scary to return to a blog, but once you do it’s like a warm hug I’ve never felt more comfortable in a community than on tumblr, you can make genuine connections here, even if they are just fleeting sometimes. They are still real in that we can feel and care for each other. We’re living our lives side by side for years, and there is always someone who notices an absence, someone who cares about our well-being and how we are doing. Shoutout to all the people who care about someone in an online community this way!

tau1tvec: tau1tvec: Idk if it was intended, but being forced to actually go to someone’s blog to access the bigger more fun boop button might’ve helped people check out blogs they wouldn’t’ve otherwise checked out, and found themselves following as a result. Or maybe that was just me, and my need to poke the toe beans. The people who work on, and own this site could rlly use what they did yesterday as a means to make improvements to this site in general. Like add a little fx when ppl hit like and reblog, and add more badges that can be earned through interaction and activity rather than just ones that require irl money. Stop banning users, esp marginalized ones without legitimate reason perhaps ??? Does it sucks that the internet and video games have rotted our brains to the point that plain old human connection isn’t enough to motivate us? Yes, but also these sites helped us get to that point, it wouldn’t kill them to help us get out, or at least create a slightly healthier new normal. Who knows, maybe actually genuinely putting their userbase’s wants and needs first might get them the growth and success they themselves so desperately want.
