  1. I feel so bad for this guy. He's been working on his world for over a year and this is the first item he's made that doesn't look like shit. The finished world is going to be an abysmal mess that requires hundreds of mesh downloads of basic meshes with no textures.

  2. I really like the style but I have never, ever seen an English pub with the name "2 Maidens." Royal Oak, Red Lion, The Kings Arms would be appropriate.

    That said, I'd prefer it to be in Simlisch anyway. Except for the naming fail and the lack of a Simlisch option, I think this is very nice.

  3. Bah. Early morning spelling fail. Simlisch should be Simlish. ^^

  5. Shivar..You hate Carlos and always have as evidenced on MTS. Why don't you just leave him alone? No reason why you have to even look at his stuff. Ignore it if it bothers you so much.

  6. Ignore my comments if they bother YOU so much.

  7. ^ Valid point.

    And Shivar is FAR from the 'only' person who has trying give Carlos constructive criticism. Truth is, this guy just doesn't listen to anything people say when they try to help (and Carlos REALLY needs the help).

    At this point, it's perfectly reasonable to get some fairly harsh words. Along with Shivar, it's also difficult for me to watch this guy crash and burn repeatedly.

  8. This is better than anything else I've seen this guy do, but he's still making untextured objects with ugly beginner-level meshes and calling them "finished".

    I look forward to seeing some better objects though.

  9. Have you seen any pictures of his worlds? About the only thing EA made in them is the grass. There's a horrible road texture (seen here), road signs all over the fucking place (he seriously puts an entire highway's worth of road signs on each corner), big ugly gas stations and fake monorails and stuff that look like they're from the pre-alpha phase of a playstation game, etc.

    And it is this way because he ignores criticism.

  10. Don't be so jealous of unfettered genius, Shivar. No criticism means no restrictions! He's the Warhol of our Sims 3 community.

    ;)

  11. Well... points for trying. This isn't really that bad and not photoskinned to the maximum.

  12. I think you have the right to say whatever you want, Shivar, but at the same time, it's sort of pathetic how you feel the need to bash on this guy EVERY time something of his is posted. We get it, he gets it, and nobody seems to care that much besides you. It just seems...oddly personal. :/

  13. ^Seriously...it reminds me of the big kid who kicks over the little kids' sandcastle just because it sucks.

  14. I reckon this guy puts in a lot of effort to his work if he must change *everything* to make it his own. I kind of like how it says VISA on the door and stuff, though I totally take your point about most of his work being awful. To be honest if they just don't feature crap and let people work at their own level until they get better on their own (if they ignore criticism) then it's the only way.

    This. Nobody is awesome in the beginning. Leave the guy alone long enough to finish his world, and if he asks for feedback, give it. He doesn't need to be told "UR doin it WRONG" while he's still in the process of working on it. Who knows how it'll turn out?

  16. Hey Shivar, I really feel extremely sorry for you. You have one hell of a sick mind. Please go and see a doctor.

  17. Damn, Shivar. Get a life of your own and stop obsessing about what this guy does and does not do...it's just sad.

  18. "It just seems...oddly personal."

    This is what weirds me out, too. Not the fact that you bash his stuff, but the fact that you can't seem to NOT bash his stuff. Did he kick your puppy or something?

    He'll either get better or he won't. It's not your personal mission to ensure that he takes people's advice. I just get the impression that you can't stand the idea of someone not fawning over your brilliance and jumping at the chance to please you. Maybe that's not the case, but your absolute inability to let him be implies SOME sort of bizarre obsession, and that's the only thing that even borders on making sense.
