Sims patch. @ 06:33 pm

I'm currently feelin: creative
I'm currently hearin: "Darwin" -- Third Eye Blind

A while ago on LJ, I remember seeing a link to a really great U2 Sims skin... problem is now that I can't find it, and my computer has since crashed, causing me to lose my old one.

Anyone know the one I'm talking about? I believe it was Elevation-ish... might be wrong, though. I've seen a few around. Links to any of 'em would help.

There are some here: http://u2baby.com/sims.html

There are also some on the official sim site (which I like better), so if you are registered there, you can get them there. Unfortunately, I'm on a Mac and they won't let us Mac people register our software there and get access to their downloads. Jerks!

I've got those already.

On the official site? It'll only let me access a few of their pages (the rest come up as 'page not responding').

Any way you could possibly link me to just the files? Or are they staring me in the face and I'm simply retarded? Dammit, I need to make my U2 house back to the pretty that it was. -Cries in a corner.- And it was quite pretty... at least in my POV.

Thank you anyway, by the way. You're a doll for even trying to help. -Hug.-

i found them once, but then couldn't get access to them, so I have no idea where they are. I even forget exactly the words I used to get to them. Sorry.

Believe me, if I ever happen to get some good ones, I'll post them on this U2 journal. There are a few of us U2 fans who are also Simmers. :D

Thanks beyond reason, babe. I just remember seeing it posted in some... random U2 person's journal and I can't remember for the life of me whose it was. I wish you could search journal archives so I could remember. Blast! Oh, well.

I got to the official site and all I could find was a good Bono one. But it isn't fun if he's got nobody to interact with! Hee.

I found a whole U2 house there! It was a house in the shape of the letters 'U' and '2' and then all the members. I went to hit download and it wouldn't let me get them! I went to the register software page to check my serial numbers, saw they weren't there, went to register it and couldn't. I've even written to them about this and never received a reply (I just wrote four days ago to Aspyr about how they plug that site and I haven't received a reply from them).

Ack! Sorry, you hit a soft spot there. I just wrote to them recently (as I said) and I'm pissed that I haven't received a response.

That was me!

I haven't played The Sims in a LONG time, but I made the orange and green U2 shaped house along with Elevation style U2 skins.

You can view & DL the house from my SimPage here (scroll down to find -- the family name is just "U2").

I have since updated the U2 skins, but I never uploaded them to the official site. However, if you want those, you can DL them here. (It's a 415k zip file)

If you have any questions, problems, or can't access the site, you can e-mail me at melst@livejournal.com and I can e-mail the house and/or skins to you directly.

Boy, it's a small world that I can talk about seeing your stuff on the Sims site and then for you to see this post about it!

I've emailed you to ask if you can send me the house since I can't access the Sims Exchange.

I know! When I saw the initial post I was like, "Oh, cool, The Sims" and then I read along and was like "OMG! They're talking about my lil ole' U2 house!!" *giggle*

Got your e-mail & will respond ASAP! (My stupid Outlook Express is being weird, but I'll do my best.)

Cheers! :)
