Guess who got straight A+s their first semester?
Wednesday dropping Amelia off at her new home for the fall semester but we all know Nessy will be making the drive up more time than she’ll like to admit. ♥
+ A grumpy Amelia that doesn’t want to let go!
Just random late night thoughts! I feel very blessed for the kindness I receive, not a day goes by that I am not genuinely appreciative and even sometimes taken back in disbelief. There are so many people here who inspire me, and so many wonderful personalities I have had the pleasure to meet! Despite the community drama from time to time, really glad to be a Simblr because for me the pros do out way the cons. And I just love you guys! ♥ Okay, that’s all, goodnight!
Sending Amelia (and Wednesday as an accomplice) to university! ♥
Gameplay? From me? Perhaps?
❋ Aspen Effects Duo ❋
Happy Simblreen! I’ve been asked many times to create a preset that is soft, light, and versatile … here is my first attempt! As Halloween passes and fall stays, I wanted to create a preset inspired by autumn leaves. The Aspen Effects Duo contains a simple, slightly saturated ReShade preset with a color grade (in two formats) that further saturates and emphasizes reds and oranges. The Apsen Color Grades comes in a quick and easy photoshop action and a customizable PSD.
✽ ReShade Installation Information ✽
- The Aspen ReShade is made for 3.0.8; if you do not have ReShade installed you can download the program here (here is a guide on the installation process) and here you can find the correct shaders (after you install ReShade you’ll need to replace the shaders you installed with the new shaders from the link I provided you).
- Turn off edge-smoothing to allow DOF (background blur) to work.
- In order to achieve the same look as the previews, apply the Aspen Color Grade (either photoshop action or PSD) over your screenshots.
✽ ReShade Preset Toggle Key Commands ✽
- MXAO: Caps Lock
- MATSO DOF: Keyboard Z
- MARTY MCFLY DOF: Keyboard X
- TILT SHIFT: Keyboard F
✽ Color Grade Information ✽
- Aspen Color Grade comes in two forms; a photoshop action (ATN file) and a PSD file. Note; the PSD has dust textures that the photoshop action does not.
- The photoshop is quick and easy, but does not as easily allow for customization.
- PSD allows for completely customization and contains additional texture overlays.
- To use the PSD, open the file in photoshop and place your image underneath the group labeled “Aspen Color Grade”. To adjust the color grade open the group and change the effects however you please.
✽ Updates from Simblreen Release ✽
- MXAO has been reduced in the Aspen ReShade preset.
- GP DOF is configured and ready to use!
- Photoshop Action layer label issue has been fixed.
- Color grade effects have been adjusted to fix some color issues.

Oh! ♥ That’s really sweet, thank you!! Send love your way too! ♥
Don’t worry about it, it is what it is! Honestly, that’s all I could have wanted so I am really happy to hear they help you achieve your story goals! Thank you so much for this message! ♥
Thank you very much, I really appreciate it! ♥
Happy to hear you enjoy them! ♥
Not to discount all the kind messages I have gotten today but I just struggle to be a creator here. I started to create presets because I found the process to be a lot of fun, I liked the challenge of ReShade, and I liked to see how much I could alter the sims atmosphere. I have genuinely enjoyed sharing my presets with others and seeing others use my creations. As time goes on, people become shorter with me, colder with me, and talk to me with more disrespect than before … because I share presets? Listen, I do not want to have to address people who violate my TOU because that’s just as uncomfortable for me as it is for you. I do not want to have to be strict with my content, I want everyone to enjoy a stress free experience on Simblr.
I spend time and effort on my presets regardless if you feel they have individual integrity. Sometimes it’s a lengthy process which is why I ask people to not use my presets as a base or use parts of my configurations in their presets. BUT if you really want to use my presets/configurations, send me a message so I am aware and I will grant you permission! I just would like to know prior. I promise, I am not looking to make your life more difficult. Think of all the beautiful presets within the community, think of the time it took you to create the perfect preset for you game. If you can sympathize with that process please sympathize with me.
Anyway, I needed to get this off my chest because each day I encounter more situations where people seem to disregard my creations and more so, me.
On that note, I will not do the ReShade guide video/live stream. There will not be a 3K gift, as of now. I’ll may post some of the creations I make for myself in the near future (I have a WIP I personally really love) but IDK. Might be time to move on to other types of content.
It just comes with the territory, and more and more lately BUT the kind messages always out way the disrespectful ones. I am flattered you! Thank you so much! ily ♥
Of course, it’s my pleasure! ♥
Haha, thank you! And I am flattered! ♥
Thank you!! ♥ Truly, it’s just for fun and makes me happy!
Thank you Ki! ♥ ♥ ♥
You did not provide evidence, evidence would be examples of configurations from my preset that aligns with a preset posted prior to mine. Provide me with legitimate examples and I will take your claims legitimately.
In regards to what you feel I’ve “jacked” … I haven’t posted a soft witchy preset, neither Desdemona, Vespera, Aspen, or Philomena are soft/witchy presets. You fabricated the existence of this ReShade preset. Many people enjoy soft and witchy presets, if someone would like to create one they should not be criticized. Trends exist because large groups of people all share the same interest, and there is absolutely no harm in enjoying and contributing to a trend.
Your second claim; I made a monochrome preset because people have started to edit in black and white. Black and white photography is not a new phenomenon, it has existed for almost 200 hundred years. I created a monochrome preset because it aligns with general Halloween themes.
Lastly, my cyber/syhthwave effects pack was posted 6 months ago (not new by any means). It was created with an enormous amount of help from the community, it was a collaborative project with my followers via numerous posts, polls, and live streams. It was intended to contribute to an aesthetic that did not have many resources in the Sims community and was successful.
Believe what you will, believe I jump on trends if that satisfies you but honestly …
you can suck my ass. :)
Right, lets agree to disagree and respect one another.
I’ve live streamed my creation process a many of times, know your lane. If you have evidence I’ve taken from another preset, show me your evidence but you won’t because it’s false.
I don’t know what to say, this is incredibly sweet! Thank you so much for thinking of me, right back at ya! ♥
Thank you so much! I am glad you like my sims! Sending one your way as well! ;’)
I did Wednesday so now I’ll do her lover!

Ki!!! Thank you very much for this message! ily ♥ Expect one in return!
Since I just did those edits of my Brutally Soft characters, I guess I’ll share basic information about them! In case someone is interested? Who knows!

Anyone have an idea of what they’d like as a 3K follower gift from me? 👉👈
Oh my, thank you so much! So glad you like it! ♥
A soft and brutal love ...
They are by far one of my favorite CC creators and deserve so much more recognition, you definitely will not be disappointed! :’)
No worries! The horns are by @c-cerberus-sims-s. (And thank you!) <3
If you go through my answered ReShade help asks, which I always recommend anyone do before they send ReShade questions, you’ll see the most recent ask has the solution to your issue.
