Your 2020 Sims Resolutions - MissyHissy - 12-28-2019

I don't normally go in for New Years Resolutions but this year, I've made a series of Simming ones. This was going around Tumblr recently and I thought it might be really nice to have a thread here, so we can give each other a nudge if we're flagging!

1. Learn Script Modding ~ I don’t know how ambitious a project this will turn out to be but it’s something that’s been on my mind for some time now. This seems as good a time as any! All support, encouragement and coffee is very appreciated!

2. Story Writing ~ Something else I’ve wanted to do for ages is actually have a Sims story ongoing. I love writing but I rarely share my projects so this could be the time to do that and get the feedback.

3. More Regular Updates ~ I’m not going to promise this one because I can’t. It’s technically not restricted to Pixelated Puddings but to my Job Centre, Mod the Sims and my Simblr but the principal is the same. However, I’ve got so many ideas still for the careers that I want to finally get them coded. To coin a phase, let’s Get Coding Done! (Cookies for those in the UK who catch this reference!)

4. More Gameplay Pictures ~ I love playing Sims 3 and Sims 4 and I don’t post as many gameplay pictures as I used to. So that’s a major goal for the next year.

5. Reaching Out ~ I actually started this a little more this year and I’ve made some fantastic new friends on Simblr this year and I’d like to think I’ll make some more as the next year goes on not only on Simblr, but here on the forum too.

6. Ralton-on-Sea ~ I love working on this world and I’m really hoping I might finish it next year. Either way, I intend to share more pictures on Simblr and over here during this next year! So keep an eye out  Derisive

So come on everyone, what about you?   Bb2

I'm sorry for the vanishing from the forum, real life became...very hectic. (I lost my childhood dog in January, and my grandfather unfortunately lost his battle with dementia in August, and this year's fall finals season was incredibly dramatic due to half my coworkers getting sick or injured right in the busy part.)

I really missed the townie edits, though... so I'm back. And here are my goals for 2020. 


  1. Actually post and continue a story! I’m hoping I can finalize a few characters before I go back to work on Thursday. (And I got a second wind on my fanfic after watching a few “Abuelas Review Each Other’s Tamales” videos on Buzzfeed.) {Yes, I started a fanfic...based on Thrawn from Star Wars: Rebels. I'm sorry. I'm hopeless.}

  2. Learn to mesh! I really want to make a Regency apron-front dress, among other things.

  3. Finalize a download Sim. Thrawn’s been languishing in my Sim bin for so long…

  4. Interact more with other Simmers, since I really need to make more friends. (And digital friends are easier to keep up with, since my schedule makes socializing…very hard.)

  5. Learn to make skin details–Bajoran nose wrinkles, Thrawn’s forehead ridges, maybe a full set of moles for Vicar Max…

  6. Get over my need for everything to be JUST SO. I’m simultaneously a perfectionist and a procrastinator.

  7. I know I want to get the By George challenge off the ground, that’s for sure. And hopefully get a decent posting/playing schedule.

Those sound like excellent resolutions! I'd love to see a story from you and your sims sound lovely if you like the attention to detail!  Heart
I'm something of a perfectionist and procrastinator myself, so I know where you're coming from!

Mine is to keep playing the Smyths mainly and perhaps revisit a few of my other saves, like Bunny and Leighton Sekemoto.

Oh and to open TS3 again Tongue

My Tumblr post goals wre:

Post one -

1. Learn how to do something different. Objects or poses are on the list!

2. Reach Gen 4 of a legacy for once in my life. Seriously.

3. Find new, creative ways to work around Tumblr’s adult content ban. The most recent attempts have failed after a few hours ?

4. Make more friends. I’m the worst at reaching out and talking to people! It’s not that I don’t want to, I’m just horribly awkward and worry that it’ll fall flat! The friends that I do have here are amazing though!

5. Participate more. I really need to comment more, like more, take part in challenges and photo prompts and generally do more! Also, manage to submit sims for bachelor challenges and stuff like that.

6. Collaborate. The last collab I did was in 2018! I would love to make CC with another simmer again.

8. Write more. I want to get out of my comfort zone and write a proper story again. I may even revisit Laundrygnomes.

9. Try more challenges. But not the 100 Baby Challenge, because it scares me.

10. Reconnect with my old simming friends. I’ve been on here for centuries and years, so sometimes friendships fizzle a little. It would be nice to say hi to some old friends.

Post 2 -

1. Revisit a couple of favourite, but neglected saves. Looking at you, Bunny, Leighton and the Enekjaer TS3 save!

2. Hunt down my motivation and make more CC. 2019 was a productive year, so let’s make 2020 just as productive if not more.

3. Have at least one simmer meet up. I mean other than @titosims, who I see every March regardless and @bodacsims who I’ll probably see again at some point (always fun!). Looking at you, @ninjaofthepurplethings Tongue Our futile plans will come into fruition soon!

4. Have more self belief/less fucks to give. I worry about the stuff I put out being a bit questionable in quality. Maybe it is, maybe it’s not. I enjoy it, so that’s the main thing Smile !

5. Put more effort into Pixelated Puddings. This is actually a work in progress as @missy-hissy and I have plans for it and we have a small, but amazing group of simmers who have made it clear that they still very much want the site to exist.

6. Revisit and update old CC. There are a few things I have in mind.

I could see you doing your own poses. I can especially see your sims testing them for you  Moinmoin_02
Eurgh, Tumblr are being so childish with that. Has NewTumbl (or whatever it's called) turned out to be a decent workaround or what? I don't think many have moved over there, have they?


RE: Your 2020 Sims Resolutions - Langley - 03-10-2020

I can't even keep my new year's resolutions in the Sims, let alone in real life. haha


RE: Your 2020 Sims Resolutions - Hellfrozeover - 03-21-2020

Lol same! So much.


RE: Your 2020 Sims Resolutions - MissyHissy - 03-27-2020

Yeah, I've not been so great either! Mosking The only one I've actually done anything on out of my list is reaching out  Heart
