The Rebuild - Update 1

Before I give you all an update on this rebuild, I want to take minute to thank you all for the kind words and support. I know I haven't been around much. I haven't posted a real update in months, and I haven't commented on other people's blogs, or posted much on N99. Unfortunatly real lilfe has keeping me busy.
I've changed jobs 9 months ago, and I like what I'm doing now, but I think it's kind of tireing having to talk/think/write French all day, when French isn't my motherlanguage. I do think that's part of the fact I have been so absent lately, I just don't seem to find the energy to do any writing in English when I get home. I hope that I can adjust, and that in a few more months I'll be able to combine the 2 much more, after all it's not like I do anything productive at home when I'm home anyway.

I really do want to thank you guys for commenting even though I don't do that much lately. I really appreciate it a lot!

Now on the rebuid-update; one of the most exciting things about having to rebuild, is picking out new terrains! This was actually one of the things I was actually looking forward to!
I've been thinking about a new terrain for SimsVille for some time now, but never felt like replacing the terrain and re-organizing.

SimsVille on hold ...

I think it's time to finally accept that I really need to rebuild SimsVille. I've been strugling with the pink flashing for some time now, and every time I thinks it's gone, it keeps coming back.

I thought it had something to do with the amount of CC I have in my game, which used to be around 17GB (I know I have a lot!), so I started deleting things, and it appeared that every time I got it under 16GB it was gone.

However lately it came back again, and I've been cleaning out my downloads-folder even more, I'm now under 15GB, and I keep deleting things, but the pink flashing keeps comming back. So I stopped thinking it was the CC, and started thinking the problem is the hood instead. And so I'll be doing a rebuild of SimsVille

I've been thinking about playing this last family before doing the rebuild, it's december in my hood, and so I'm almost halfway through my round, but my gave is pushing me in another direction.
I've been trying to do that the last month or so, and it's just not working.
Ussually I can play 2 or even 3 families during one weekend, if I have not much else do to, now my game hardly lets me play through 2 days without giving me the pink flashing. So finnishing this year is just not going to happen before the rebuild.

I admire Carla for what she has done by completely starting over with her downloads-folder when she started her rebuild, but I'm just not that brave.
So I'm going to keep cleaning out my downloads-folder, and I'll be rebuilding at the same time. I have to admit I'm not looking forward to it, but it has to be done.

This rebuild means there won't be much updates, and I'm aware that I haven't updated in months, but now you know why, I just kept thinking I could get it fixed.
I have some updates, that I still need to write, and I'll try to get them up so you'll at least see what my sims have been doing. And I'll also try to keep you guys updated with the progress of the rebuild. I don't if I'll have much time now, but I have 3 weeks off from work in September, and I hope to focus in this rebuild then, so I'll be able to get back to regular playsessions, and updates.

This rebuild also means that SimsVille will look different, I'm looking for other terrains for both SimsVille and Simmeria, because I got tired of the once I had.
It also means that some sims won't be living in the same houses afterwards, and for some families it's even possible they move from Simmeria to SimsVille of the other way around.
Some community lots might disappear and new ones will be build, ...

So I'm very sorry for the lack of updates lately, I hope to make it up to you when I get the new SimsVille going!
