This change of theme has taken up most of my time the latest few days. Now I can choose what posts to have in the front page slider, and I can divide my posts into categories much more then I used to. This is a very wide area to cover, and all may not be interested in the programs and techniques involved. So now I can post the Custard pictures in another post. Only using decoration and architecture pics here. Having to produce a picture for the featured slider every day was a much bigger job then I anticipated. Not all pictures fits in a slider like that.
To try out my Editorial theme I installed a plugin to make it possible for me to customize the theme before you can see it. Last time I changed a theme, it was a lot of back and forth, and my favourite didn’t even work. I used it a bit this time, but the logo took a day to update. The same with lots of the other things I did. Now it looks ok, I can do the rest later. I have reorganized the menu, hope it’s still good. So I guess any changes I do today will only be visible in the morning. Wonder how I ended up with Catergories as a search criteria on the home page? Reminds me of Caterpillar…
I have been working on more technical stuff lately, nothing fitting for my slider. Since I was very close to releasing my new theme I decided to consentrate on that.
I tried to remove files from the Shek-O house with Custard again, and it’s working! I couldn’t find the ground terrain from Ayyuff in there, but tons of other stuff. I didn’t know I had that much CC on this lot. The list on TSR is going to be long. Is it a bit embarrassing when I have like a page of listed CC? It’s even 22 mb, TSR’s max limit is 50 mb. I have to use what I already have on the livingroom, bathrooms and kids bedrooms I have left, that’s for sure. 22 mb, I almost feel like I want to hide behind a pile of bricks. I need a smiley for that. It’s not going to be the favourite download that’s for sure.
Earlier I had some troubles removing files, but then I used the same files in the house as I removed them. That may be the difference. So I’m thinking perhaps if I remove the furnishings and then clean it up with Custard I can release both a furnished and unfurnished house.
The issue with patterns included on a lot for upload at TSR is probably not an issue at all. The guidelines at TSR didn’t say a thing about included non-external files. My patterns are mine, they are not external as such.
I made a review for TheLotReview site I share with talented creators from MTS. It’s Luna’s Rebujito5, the set included some flowing rounded balconies and frame pieces. In the last post I mentioned a few creators from YouTube. In those video’s I saw a new way of using a piece from this set. I wanted to test how it looks in game. Here is the video I made for my review.
Our TheLotReview site now has 3 posts. I gave it 33/40 in the review. They have their limitations, but frankly limitations is just in your mind. It’s all about possibilities if you wanna be a great designer.
