After the anon question asking about my pictures, I thought I’d post a before/after picture. Disclaimer: this was a picture taken and edited during the course of my own gameplay and posted just for fun. While I try to just make the screenshots for my downloads reflect what the house looks like in game without the terrible darkness of the in-game camera, this screenshot was for my own amusement and thus was edited to death. I would consider editing screenshots in an upload to this extent to be rather dishonest.
I do some editing to fix the weird darkness of pictures taken using the in-game camera. I usually use a fairly bright lighting mod, so I try to make my screenshots just look like my game. My older downloads have unedited pictures, though. This house is the first one where I edited the pictures (look at my downloads page to see them all in order) because it bothered me that a beach house could look so sunny and bright in my game but really dull and dark in the pictures; all the previous ones have completely unedited screenshots. I also turn edge smoothing all the way up before I take pictures. It makes a big difference and doesn’t require restarting the game. If you don’t/can’t have advanced rendering on, you might adjust your GraphicRules file to render high quality grass even when it’s off.
I’m sure some people download stuff on aesthetics alone, but I think those who have been playing this game for a while realize that you don’t know how something is going to look until you actually put it in your game (it works both ways; I’ve downloaded items with beautiful screenshots only to discover that they looked extraordinarily shitty in my game).
I never include CC with my lots so if you don’t download the items in the content list they will be replaced with base game items from the same category.
The house I’m using for Sage and Evelyn by FHRA
I do have Island Paradise, and I’ve made two houseboats available for download.
I feel like I don’t follow very many people and I’m probably missing out on a lot of interesting stuff in the simblr-verse. Tumblr just doesn’t make it very easy to search for blogs. I would like to see more TS3 building/decorating stuff (original content) on my dash. I’m also not opposed to real-life architecture/interior design stuff.
I accidentally left out hudy777DeSign’s ModernLine Windows from the CC list on the Hollins. I edited the post here and on my downloads page, but if you already downloaded the house make sure you have the one-pane counter-height window if you want it to show up as pictured in your game.
I believe you’re referring to Meadow Retreat by steph0sims. It uses a similar exterior color scheme and is also done in a Craftsman style, but that’s where the resemblance ends. It’s not a copy by any means.
Built at 401 Vista Court in Brightpoint, this home will look best on a similar lot with a downward slope towards the water. May use items from any/all EPs.
