idk i find it not totally believable the virus was something she recieved specifically delivered to them, these sites people post their sims downloads on for free are filled with adds spy ware and poo and its not exactly difficult to obtain a virus if you go to a lot of sims oriented websites . I do however find the rest of story plausible but a damn shame. I have never had an issue with her stuff working or with her stuff giving viruses but i tend to only download stuff i can't live without cause her site is a horrible pain in the ass to navigate through. i had considered paying for premium things but never bothered because i felt like trying to make a transaction would be more annoying then it was worth. I also just now decided to take a peek at her site to see if she addressed this accusation and she has
At first, i wrote this post at the tumblr.
but there are many irrelevant comments. so i delete that post and write here.
I want to tell something misunderstanding.
someone tell that i sent virus files.
So, I want tell more detail situation.
I’m so sorry for my bad english, but i want to disclose this happening.
This is event outline
Of course she was our user.
(she always require me to fix even s4 studio error. so i remember her.)
1) She told me 204M Hair was not work perfectly
2) I sent a zip file (May_204M.zip - May_204.exe / May_204M.qrzip)
<that file is our prototype files to make download tools for new challenage.>
someone ask me why send exe files. That is what we try to challenge nowdays. (we want to make download tools program. (All in one- TS4 viwer + Package Tracer + Cheat hotkey + Option Settings + Download Tools what we made)
so i want to test it (of course i explain her about it)
Hmmm she sended an exe file. I you have to download a file from/through an exe file you are being scammed. Because those files always contains viruses. It's like when you try to download a font and it gives you an exe installer.
But it's maysims she has enough people who suck up to her just for some conversions so I can already see mass people defending her.
i cant read the stuff on there its why i didnt pay for anything cause i can't communicate properly with the person im sending money to. I don't buy the virus stuff but the rest is believable there is an entitlement complex in some sim creators they create nice things so they act like people should be suckin up all the time and be grateful to the point of paying money which in some situations i literally dont mind because i think some things are worth paying for but when you are dealing with online subscriptions that is not a legitimate company you run the risk of dealing with piss poor services and what is displayed in this is exactly that, she didn't do something right with the object , she claimed she fixed that and then sent the file along with what appears to be described as kind of a sims package installer kinda like sims 2 had? it seems like a program she is trying to promote and sent it that way to encourage the programs use. exe files are not usually viruses, they can contain them but an exe file is just a program extract file . The actual sending of a virus is just not something i forsee someone in the sims community doing, the risk of having a virus on her machine to send to people that irritate her is just unlikely . Plus the virus story is a sub story, they are ASSUMING maysims made this copyright dispute because of a mutual acquaintance that went through this issue with her . There is a lot of maybes, could haves, and possibles in this story but not many facts. The facts that I see is in the sims community recolors and reuploading of meshes happens constantly and sometimes to the dismay of creators that make them and its why the end up not making content anymore. If maysims is using meshes without permission and filing disputes for the same "crime" then it makes a hypocritical and entitled sim creator. The community is froth with it. You either decide to not download from her or at the very least not to support money wise. If she wasn't making money on it she prolly wouldn't be making things anymore. When the creation for sims becomes something you do just to make the extra buck the appreciation for other creators and the importance of satisfaction of the people downloading surprisingly goes down. It's strange but ive seen it happen, when content was free and the creator enjoyed they really worked hard on the items and the quality and service in getting an item made was legit awesome but when they got popular enough to start charging for things the time they spend caring about the satisfaction of the person requesting it seemed less important then getting the request over with so you can hurry up and get paid for the next one . Her popularity means f-all to me in terms of whether or not i believe the story, the internet, failed communication, and the lack of information provided on the situation just makes me inclined to not be concerned over it enough to stop downloading from her. It does however confirm my lack of interest of paying for her stuff, if she is just using other peoples stuff then her stuff isnt original as i thought and someone else might do it instead for free at some point so why bother paying for that.

MaySims has been a problem from the start. She is known to manipulate the resources in her .packages in an attempt to fool Sims 4 Studio into finding the .package corrupt. She does this in an apparent attempt to keep other creators from making recolors of the hairs she converts. Studio has updated at least 4-5 times to accommodate the corruption she purposely introduced into her .packages so that the items could be recolored. In one of the latest patches, EA tightened up the game's .package requirement. This move on EA's part had the effect of making corrupt items that formerly worked, stop working.
The fact that her items were broken in that patch was not a Sims 4 Studio error. The reason was the corruption MaySims had created herself by hacking her .packages unnecessarily. She literally opens her .package and directly manipulates the .package resources to break them. She has taken extra time to add fake and misleading data on purpose. It is beyond disingenuous for her to make the claim that this is Studio's fault - it is a calculated untruth. It's annoying that she pointed a finger at Sims 4 Studio when all the problems with her hair.packages were introduced by her for the specific purpose of screwing other creators. None of what I hear about this person surprises me. She is not a community-minded individual, and she has questionable ethics.
As far as the hair.packages themselves go, if someone else converts the same hair, she can hardly file a DMCA notice and have it stick because the original content doesn't belong to her, and she has no claim on it. The person who had the notice filed in that circumstance could reasonably fight it. If she's complaining because someone created a recolor, again, she would have a tough time winning that DMCA claim because CAS recolors can be made without including the mesh and it's quite easy to make them that way using Studio. A recolor works with the original, but it doesn't have to contain anything but unique material the second creator made.
Creating a hair is difficult because the process of meshing the hair is tedious and takes a while to master. The conversion process is a lesser task. If others don't care for how MaySims handles things they could always learn to convert items themselves. There are tutorials here and creator help specifically to help people get started making content for this game.
Please help other creators find Sims 4 Studio and receive the help you received by mentioning Sims 4 Studio with your downloads Please do not PM me with questions about projects or getting Studio to run on your computer. I do not answer these PMs.
i had no idea she was so vindictive with her poo . its food for thought . im surprised someone hasnt just leaked her pay stuff by now sims 2 having a paysite was nearly impossible with paysitesdestoryed acting as sims 2 vigilantes saving the little man the almight dollar on what "should be free content" lol I had not read anything of her accusing the sims 4 studio of anything i only read these two posts on the matter and i know nothing of her reputation i just downloaded her clothes and what few free hairs she had. converting s2/s3 hairs seems to be a difficult job cause not many people are doing so or making hairs from scratch which is why she gets , pardon the phrase, away with murder. she meets the supply and demand of the cc people want and people don't take interest in stuff that could technically make or break her popularity if there was other places that offered the cc she did. Its a shame cause people like that cause other simmers to stop creating things.
Wow, up until now I'm embarrassed to say; I thought the Sims 4 CC community was a mess free place. I always wondered why she was possessive of recolors but reading about her manipulating packages is just shocking. Who has the time to do all that?
I have been playing since The Sims came out and every since I can remember I have avoided MaySims, because, someone always had an issue with them. There are plenty of other "community friendly" sites to visit filled with amazing creations from creators who actually care about the work they do and the people who enjoy it.
ah thats a shame their blog got deleted. ill just have to be on the lookout for a creator that creates or converts similar stuff cause i wouldnt be able to make most of shinobi stuff with out some of her clothes as a base for it, i never upload my recolors because i don't like dealing with terms and agreements so i keep it for personal unshared use. it sucks though when a site you have gone too without any probs with whatsoever ends up being the brunt end of a lot of problems for people.
MidnightSkySims how can I thank you for posting my comment from tumblr on here! You have no idea how badly I wanted to let everyone know of May's corruption and how she can not be trusted. I don't want anyone else to have to go through what I went through. Yes I was able to get some of my hard drive back. But 4 of the 5 partitions of my hard drive are completely empty and I do not know if they are fixable. Emma of emmas-simposium.blogspot.com did contact a lawyer and his response was that evidently if May will go to the extent of destroying my hard drive she will not stop until she has ruined everything she can. When May was told that I had proof that the file she LINKED me to, to download did in fact do the damage to my hard drive. It was on purpose and she knew what she was doing.
When I told May that Emma had spoken to a lawyer May laughed and told me next time she wanted to see Emma, myself and the lawyer face to face and laughed about it all and what she had done.
Please everyone beware of her, she is a dangerous person. I personally think she will do anything she can to get her way.
Well, he who laughs last laughs best. We'll see who wins here.
Myself I had to admit that out of many hairs that I've downloaded from maysims probably just 3 look good in the game. There are a few hairs with huge transparency issues. If you don't know how to fix it, don't convert that hair. I don't mind using converted hair as long as proper credit to original creator given and permission asked prior converting. I don't mind paying for CC if I really need it. But I mind all that BS that's going on there. Very disappointing. miriah I wouldn't lay your cards on the table in front of her. It's better to keep her surprised.
Wanted to add. Regarding the DMCA complaint. If proper permission for converting was received, converted item belongs to creator of conversion, imho. And all explanations like "oh, it's just a converted hair, she didn't create it, everybody shares so why is it wrong that I shared the item"? are kind of BS excuses. If author of that site thinks that converting meshes doesn't require any skills she should have done it herself. I am not saying that May is saint and her conversions are amazing, I am saying that emmasimposium kind of violates TOU of both creators. I am pretty sure she didn't get a permission from Newsea to re-post her converted by May hair either. So...
Please don't DM me here or elsewhere asking for assistance with Ninjaripper or CC. I don't work in Ninjaripper anymore. Please post your questions in Creator Help thread so everyone can chime in and help solving the problem
This is quite disappointing to read. Though I won't lie, I was already wary of the site as it was, but to think I'd need to be wary of the site owner? Good lord.
I'm sorry Miriah you had to suffer because of May acting like a donkey, because that was completely uncalled for. I use quite a number of conversions from that site but this had made me pleased that I never signed up for the site with my actual details but just a throwaway account. To think that the site owner would do that to her own users. Just. Ugh.
Thanks orangemittens for clarifying. It explains why I was experiencing problems with a recolour I was trying to make for my own personal use of one of her conversions. Now I don't have to pull my hair out anymore over it. I know of another who hacks their own meshes to stop other people converting the meshes, but to blame another to cover your own tracks? That's just sad of her to do that.
