So it's taking longer than expected to repair my m11x. I am using a substitute laptop for now but it isn't powerful enough for modeling or gaming. It can barely handle Zbrush and Photoshop T.T I'm currently going through tutorials from Digital Tutors and the Gnomon Workshop DVDs. I might even read up on scripting. Once my laptop comes back from Texas (I live in Hawaii), I can go back to sims 3 related stuff. I've already missed so many days from Final Fantasy XIV ARR T.T I'm pretty sure the NDA was lifted on that.
