That looks so real! Are you using Gelina’d lighting tweaks?
Yep, brntwaffles’ Cloud 9 and Gelina’s tweaks. I edit my pictures more when they’re not for upload though—adjusting colors, hand painting some shadows and such for more realism and depth. Here’s a before and after of the picture of Marcy’s home:
They’re EA items! They’re great and so underused, in my opinion. The brown one is base game and the yellow-ish one is from Pets; there’s another kind of olive green one from Pets.
I don’t include CC in my uploads, so if you want those items in your game you need to download them separately.
They turned her old room into an art room for Arya so she had to rent in order to avoid sleeping on the couch.
My legacy family is temporarily out of commission, so I decided to start another game. I haven’t actually made a new Sim in ages. I think I had forgotten how fun it is…and also how long it takes to agonize over the most minute details in CAS…
The Ashby House
I was building this home for my legacy family when liegt suggested a Victorian heirloom house with a secret room somewhere on the lot. I thought this folk Victorian-esque home might work for that so I added a semi-hidden room in the basement level, accessed by ladder in the back room of the barn (I’ll still be using it for my legacy family, by the way; this is the house Cordelia’s children will grow up in).
This home is unfurnished, save for appliances, as I didn’t want to redecorate for myself. The upstairs rooms have sloped ceilings, and the space beneath them is pretty usable. I tried chairs, desks and beds there and they worked without issue.
May use items from any/all EPs. Custom content used/pictured (nothing included in download):
Vague requests ftw!
bitch house not beach house lol wtf is a bitch house.
bitch house! house for a bitch!
no anon wants a bitch house srsly come on ;)
I was confused for a second, like “is this some kind of slang I haven’t heard about??”
In any event, 6 bedrooms is rather larger than I usually like to build (I don’t think I’ve even ever built anything with more than 5). Besides, “beach house” is a really broad category in which a lot of architectural styles would fit. If you’re more specific about the style of house you’re looking for (or if you provide a reference picture) I might be able to make a smaller one. But for now, I would say check out one-plumbbob for a lot of houses that look good on a beach and you might be able to reconfigure to the capacity you need.
imo, and I grew up in the farm belt, that house could sit in the middle of a cornfield anywhere, and has for 100 years.
Awesome! This is the first properly “country” home I’ve made so it’s nice to know that I’m getting the style at least somewhat right.
Hmm a cross between those you used and pointed arch windows are maybe the ones from Monte Vista?
Thanks for the suggestion! I don’t have Monte Vista so I hadn’t seen that window. It looks very nice though; I’ll have to try it out.
I was working on this folk Victorian farmhouse for my legacy family when liegt contacted me with a suggestion to make a Victorian—something old that looks like it’s been in the family for a while, with a secret room for werewolves. Minus the werewolves that was pretty much what I was working on anyway, so I’ll share this one sometime in the near future. I’m thinking a cellar accessed through the garden shed for the werewolf thing.
I need some different windows though. Maybe some pointed arch Gothic windows—but with cleaner lines; nothing elaborate or cathedral like. Any suggestions?
Quite possibly the cutest toddler I’ve ever had in my game. Cordelia grew up, married, and finally got rid of the alien genes.
The only limit is whether your computer has enough RAM to process the number of files you’re trying to merge. If you try to do too many s3pe will quit on you. And larger packages—hair, for instance—take longer to merge than smaller ones—like patterns—but there’s no way to speed up the process.
Deery Meadows is still my building world but I’ve long since abandoned any ideas about building it up properly. It was too large and sprawling and I lost interest pretty quickly. I made a fair bit of progress in Laguna Coast, though I haven’t touched it in a very long time, so I may share that save file at some point in the distant future if I finish it. I definitely will not be doing a base game or limited EP version though; I have all EPs and I don’t keep track of EP items when I’m building.
