So, I’ve been off Tumblr for the better part of two weeks, doing other things. Unfortunately not too many of them have been dreadfully useful.
Anyway, I purchased a new sims expansion pack, and have spent significant time fiddling with that. Not playing the game so much as *fiddling* with it. There’s news of two more expansions, an awesome new content patch for all players, and I got gifted a bunch of sim points so had a higher than usual interest in the Store content. Since its still a few weeks until Civ V: Brave New World comes out, and Toady has so me so excited about the new Dwarf Fortress version that I wet myself a little bit if I so much as glance as the website name in my favourites list, The Sims has monopolised my analysis for the moment.
Primarily I’ve been considering the difference between store content (ie Officially supported Mods) and mods from the modding community, beyond the simple ‘one costs money’ aspect.
Some thoughts with images behind the jump, for those interested.
