Fun Fun Fundies, Sims 2 and 3

Unsure what to do

After I stopped playing with the Taylors the other day, I went to bed. Next time I tried loading Sims 2, the graphics had gone weird. The texture of the grass in the Sapphire Springs neighbourhood looked off, and then when I tried to make a new community lot the build/buy grid kept disppearing whenever I moved the mouse. Sims 3 was similarly fucked; the graphics settings had seemingly changed by themselves. After changing them back to how they were, suddenly the sound was crackly during the loading screen (play with headphones) and when it actually loaded, the screen kept going black and then back to the game, repeatedly. 

Bearing in mind that I had done nothing to the laptop, no updates or anything. Running fine one day and weirdly the next.

By contrast, Sims 4 is fine. I twiddled a bit with the graphics and put it on laptop mode, which has seemingly not affected gameplay and it runs amazingly smoothly. 

I’ll have to investigate why Sims 2 and 3 have gone weird. In the meantime, I was wondering whether I should bother introducing a Sims 4 fundie family, or just leaving it at the Sims 2 and 3 ones and just playing normal “secular” families on The Sims 4 instead and not blog.

Totally unrelated comment: I’m playing a normal (aka non-fundie) family on the Sims 4. One of the spawned NPCs is called Michael... and they’re female. Seems like it’s not just the Bateses! 

I may well create a Sims 4 fundie family. Just trying to think of names!

      I got blocked because she posted, on her doodle about work place affairs, how 83% of affairs happen in the work place and I called her out on it. I posted proverbs 19:9 A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he that speaketh lies shall perish. And told her she needed to check her facts it’s actually 36%.

      Alatheia is 14 in March. I imagine she's quite a sister-mom at this point, poor thing.

      Bradley peaked in the 80's. I think because of Brad Pitt, born in 1963, and Brad from Fast Times at Ridgemont High (released 1982, Brad was a senior, that makes him born in 1964), I think of Brad as a 60's name.

      I'm still bothered that they used Grace twice for a middle name. 

      Now I'm even more bothered by it since I now know Hannah means grace.

      Thank you, and no it’s not better at all. But I have hope it will be one day and I would choose this over what I endured for too long every day and twice on Sunday. My advice to others now is to never do what I did and get out immediately. But fundie religion teaches you to ignore your gut instincts and to forgive at all costs, even when the cost is you.


      I am genuinely sorry to hear that. I just cannot understand that line of teaching and I'm glad to see people rejecting it when it makes no sense. Not that the alternative is simple (as you say).
