Lockwood Publishing – Super Skinny Jeans, Animated Hi-Tops + High Heels

Some things just never get old. And when they do, they’re really just crying out for a re-imagining! Lockwood have revisited some of their classic staples and given them a fresh look for 2013. Skinny jeans have gone even skinnier and the animated glow shoes of the past are given a new lease of life in the form of hi-tops for the guys and sneaker heels for the gals.

Shoes and jeans all come in a variety of colours plus value packs to help you look sharp without breaking the bank.

The Gift Machine is updated with new outfits and LMO magic carpets for The Jewel of the Skies.

Will you choose to be an intricate painting of beauty as Madame Flutterby, be sleek and stunning as Lady Purrfect, show your strength with war paint as the Gladiatorial Hero or go for a more abstract paint effect as the Alien Reptilaman or Mistress Multi-Colored? Whatever you decide, you can complete the look with matching shoes and accessories! We hope you enjoy the free gift for your apartments too!

Bedazzle all those around you… Show your artistic flair, be Painted Bare!

    Lack of parity of content for each reason is often for various reasons—sometimes the 3rd party developer chooses to stagger the release region to region, sometimes it’s a QA thing (the content may or may not be precisely the same in each region, causing a difference that is only visible on the back end), etc. I’m sure they’re coming, so sit tight!

I really hope you plan to add more channels…or.. I will feel that I’ve wasted my 15 dollars. I can’t be the only one that feels this way!!!

So no more than 2 weeks ha ? ok Thank you Cade, i hope this set back is worth the wait .
And because i cant leave the blog without “complaining” , I hope PS Plus users get the Furniture items raised to 150 maybe 200 , There are a lot of active items coming out and its a real dilemma having to take stuff out to accomodate 1 single item that happens to be an active one .
Other than that, Great update, good work on the various companies that bring new things to Home .

@Cade The Camera Portable Item has been removed. The Camera is now only accessible from the emote menu by pressing [R1].

Seems some 1.75 updates/fixes made it into PS Home. The Save Data Transfer has not been activated. I would suggest making the Save Data Transfer a separate update, but dunno.

Should be able to set a cache higher than 12GB, but it would take longer to download everything.

+ TJF588 on January 30th, 2013 at 8:00 pm said:

1) Very nice touch linking to the PS Home forums. I’d prolly even use it, since the URL is a bit clunky to type out, especially on a mobile device.

2) What?! New quest?! Been all too long. I still regret dropping the Year of the Dragon one after it left the Activity Board (1988 baby, here!), as it’s the only one I missed…

On the side, any chance that, assuming these continue (would love a Rooster) previous “Year of the”s could be activate at the same time as a current “Year of the”, given that missing one would mean waiting twelve years for another chance?

3) Just read the 1.75 patch notes. While I like the Camera being phased out (goodnight, sweet Storage-warmer…), I’m worried about those extra Wardrobe save slots for Plus members. I plan to stay one (hope I can scrap up some scratch before March 3rd), but should our subscription lapse, what will happen to those extra 24 slots? Will they stay static until we resubscribe, will we just lose those setups, or what?

(My apologies if this has been answered here or elsewhere; I’m already pushing an hour past lights-out, heh.)

+ The_Dukenator on January 30th, 2013 at 8:21 pm said:
