MSE Content Corner Update 4/14 - new gaited stuff & misc

Postby Amanda Schrödinger » Mon Dec 17, 2012 6:24 pm

ANNOUNCEMENT (3/30): I apparently lied about retiring...

I'm retiring from CC creation. I really don't want a discussion on this. It's not because I feel unappreciated (I don't). It's not because I want more attention (I don't). I thought long about this and finally came to make the decision official. I have more reasoning below if you want to hear it.

1. I couldn't do much of anything all autumn because of graduate school applications. With interviews coming up January/February, I can't imagine much different as far as free time. Then if I actually get accepted, come August/September definitely not going to have the same amount of time.

2. I'm only okay as a visual artist. I miss writing. My characters need me. My story needs me. I need to empty my creativity there. It's another thing that took too long for me to realize; I'm not a writer because I want to me. I fought it for a very long time. I don't want to be a writer. I need to be a writer. That's where my creativity needs to be.

3. Because 1 + 2 = 3, #3 is with the outlook of free time dismal with graduate school becoming a reality, I will have time for maximum concentration in only one of my many hobbies. This will have to be writing.

4. I'm tired of making promises of content and deadlines that I can't keep.

5. I really miss playing the game. Be it actual Sims 3 gameplay or competing on ES.

6. I only ever did this because no one else was making CC for horses at the time. I was just doing it until someone else better came along. Now that others are (and making better content than me), I am no longer needed. You must understand this is my perspective. If it weren't for the others reasons perhaps one could make a valid argument to me. You must also understand I see this as a positive. My values tell me I cannot leave a community role no matter my personal feeling on the matter if it is contingent on my continued participation. With or without me, the community will still get new CC. This is how I can reconcile retiring.

7. I will come out of retirement every so often. However, new content from me will not be common. If I continue more than anticipated, I will be focusing on my fantasy content.


There are still several projects I will complete before retiring completely. These I hope to have complete by the end of the month: lunge/vaulting set (collaboration with Facha), tent pegging set (collaboration with Facha), more farm animal stuff (request by Marcie and Lauren V), three English bridles, sport medicine boots, long running braid, and half-chaps for both genders. I am also working with Christina on a couple things and will always be available for collaboration with her.

ANNOUNCEMENT (9/26/2013): I have to get my act together and apply to graduate school. Surely that will affect the rate of CC and my availability.

ANNOUNCEMENT (9/22/2013): I have a Tumblr (be scared): it's here. Since I don't know how to use it very well yet, I'll keep double posting my downloads on ES and on there. However, I'm more likely to show WIPs and previews on my Tumblr...whenever I actually start using it more...

ANNOUNCEMENT (8/3/2013): Moved my poses, sliders, marking set, and objects to separate threads in the appropriate category.
ANNOUNCEMENT (7/30/2013): Still not very active. Still don't expect much from me. I will eventually split this topic and move my poses/sliders to the new sections. However, eventually is not at this moment.

ANNOUNCEMENT (6/20/2013): Aside from content making, I have gone inactive. This means I will not likely check the forum unless I have content to update. If you PM me, do not expect an immediate reply. I also combined the sliders and poses into one section. Just thought they kind of went together...also because I feel a slider is less a tangible "item" thus creating a category mistake. Not that anyone cares.

ANNOUNCEMENT (5/56/2013): I have moved all my fantasy/costume items to a separate thread in the Fantasy Sanctuary.

ANNOUNCEMENT (5/18/2013): For those unaware, my non-ES website is officially shut down.

All content now available through Mediafire.

Requests, To-Dos, Etc

Postby Amanda Schrödinger » Tue Jan 01, 2013 4:15 pm

These lists no longer applicable

List of WIP Content

Note: WIP Content means I have started at least part of the creation process on these items. I get bored if I work on the same thing for too long. It is not unusual for me to have up to ten projects being worked on at once.

1. DIY Jump Set Part 3b (flower boxes)
2. DIY Jump Set Part 4 (gates)
3. DIy Jump Set Part 5 (miscellaneous)
4. Medicine Sport Boots
5. Mane/Tail Recolor Variations
6. Elevator bit (two and three ring variety)
7. Western curb bit
8. Various Jumper/Hunter/Jump Training pose packs
9. Traditional Akhal-Teke tack
10. Long running mane and macrame mane.

List of Planned Content

Note: Planned Content means I want to make them, but haven't started yet. These are in no particular order.

1. More gaited items
2. Various manes (braided types)
3. Sheep Skin Open-Front Boots
4. New bridle shapes (like rolled leather, raised noseband, etc)
5. Ear Tufts for cats
6. Jumper Hackamore

About Requests

I do not take requests. I have a long list of to-dos and even if I do not have it listed above, I have likely seen your request before and may hope to make it after all my other items. I do not make content based on popularity.


Acknowledgements and Thank You's

A big thanks to everyone who has helped me in the past on various pieces. Christina for use of her meshes, allowing me to help with official Equus content, and all the other amazing things about her (Ribbon mesh, Blanket mesh, 3D polo wraps, Nameplate halter). Elin for her help with fixing texture maps, making my bridles 4-channels, and her patience with my stupid questions that could easily be answered if I just read tutorials (Hunter jumps, Dressage Bridle, Pelham Bridle). Tanja (Dana/Lakeside) for her amazing texturing ability and help when I've lost patience with a project (Hunter Tail, Hoof Feathering). Cmar with more of my stupid questions but the patience of a saint and whose tool kit I'd be lost without. Jenny for her texturing after I was too bored to finish a project (Number Tags). And anyone else who may have helped me including the communities of both Mod the Sims and The Sims Resource for their tutorials and software.

Content Dump from Page 44

1. Long Running Braid



2. Lunging Halter (Collaboration with Facha; Facha made the mesh, I mapped and jointed it)


3. Lunging Whips, Human Sim Accessory (Collaboration with Facha; Facha made the mesh, I mapped and jointed it)


4. Side Reins (Collaboration with Facha; Facha made the mesh, I mapped and jointed it)*PROOF OF CONCEPT*-->because of the way EA joints work this most always will not work with poses, however Facha did a nice mesh and to show it can be made, but not practical with pose use.


Lunge Set Download (includes items 2-4)

5. Quintain (Collaboration with Facha; Facha made the mesh, I mapped it)


6. Ring Target (Collaboration with Facha; Facha made the mesh, I mapped it)


7. Ground Target(s)


8. Lance


9. Lance with Target


Tent Pegging Set Download (includes items 5-9)

10. Vaulting Saddle (the map sucks; virtually unplayable in anything but black; Dana is re-mapping it, but since it has been continually requested and because I feel like it is haunting my dreams, I am releasing this version until the fixed one is done; collaboration with Facha; Facha made the awesome mesh, I mapped it horribly and jointed it)
-Blue Handle-->Drafts
-Magenta Handle-->Smaller Horses


11. Indian Tent Pegging Martingale/Collar/Failed Attempt to Appease Arabian Owners (contains all four items seen below)-->the hind collar maps the same as the front collar so don't plan on making them two different colors.


12. Indian Leg Bracelets



Markings
Moved to this post.

Stable Decor
Moved to this post.

Other Pet Items
Hatchet Boy/Girl Dog Collars*

*This was a request from "way back in the day"; I no longer do requests.
