I’ll Be Right Here! ♥

In my youth (Oh crap, am I revealing my age?)…Hmmm…in a lot of people’s youth, a much beloved and watched movie was E.T. Many kids sat around in awe as a young kid stumbled upon a stranded alien, befriended him with Reese’s Pieces (mmmmm…hang on…I gotta go to the store and grab a bag)…

I’m Bart Simpson, who the hell are you?

It’s now 6:30am on the east coast of the US and no update to report as of yet. We’ve just had a changing of the “watch team” here at Addicts so we’ve got you covered. As soon as it hits we’ll be here with information as fast as our fingers can type! In the meantime here’s a post to help you pass the time…

Bart: “Let me start at the start, then take it away.
My name is Simpson, Bartholemew J.
That’s Bart, with an art, and a capital B,
Then Simp, plus S-O-N, that’s me!

Introductions aside, let’s move right along,
You can all sing along at the sound of the gong.”

(GONG SOUNDS)

WAWW… MORE MANSIONS

What’s up Addicts? Here’s another edition of What A Wookiee Wants. You might be wondering why I get my own forum to do this and the simple answer is, who knows? lol. The long answer includes some complex mathematics, quantum physics and a theory that EA is afraid of my Wookiee rage and prepared to add at least one thing I recommend every update. While we all hold our breath for this fantasy to be true, I’ll continue, I like to think of my rambling on this post as an episode of PADZ on Channel 6…

2D Lesson Numero Dos: El Barto

elbarto

Happy 2D Tuesday everyone!  Hope you’re all hard at work on your designs for our Spooky 2D Contest! We’ve already gotten a few submissions, but we’re looking forward to seeing what the rest of you come up with!  Don’t worry though you still have plenty of time to get your designs in, 12 days to be exact! For those looking for a little more advice on creating their 2D designs here’s another helpful 2D How To brought to you by the one and only Wookiee!  

Bunny brought you the basics of 2D. I just wanted to pop in real quick with a little more help.

Please don’t take this the wrong way but the honest truth about becoming good at 2D is practice, practice, practice. When I first started seriously, I copied images created by our very own bunny. Through trial and error. I slowly got the hang of how to do these.

To help you out, I found two images of Bart that are pixelated. Using these, it is not terribly hard to place the image in your town. As bart is a very popular character, I hoped this practice would inspire my fellow tappers.
