Nearly There

Just a quick pic-spam update to the castle.  It's comin' along, Folks!

Monday, January 23, 2012

Long time, no See

So yeah, it's been awhile. But I'm back with a slightly anti-climatic update on one of my (many) projects.  I finished the castle only to discover complete unsatisfactory results.  The castle's too small and really didn't make me proud, so I've started back to square one with a completely different take.

So this is what I have so far with the redux castle project.

Whaddya think?

Well, not to blow my own horn here, but I think this already is better than my first attempt.  The walls that aren't painted in the back of the picture may be rebuilt and adjusted when I open the game next.  I'm still trying to figure out layout as I go along.

So, a brief explanation of what is built so far, the two towers on either side of the picture with the staircases are entrances to the porticullis that meets in the middle.  Below, there's a small lake which I may extend to cover more area later.  Through the porticullis is the main entrance to the castle and from there is open to change.

So there you have it.

2 WIPs to Share

Hello Again, Y'all!

Just another quick post to show 2 WIPs.  This first one is just a update to a post I made maybe a month ago.  The exterior is complete and most of the main floor is furnished and decorated.  This one will contain CC patterns, so just a head's up to potential downloaders.

And this next one is a remodel of a Sims 3 commercial lot I'm converting to a home.  Can anybody guess which lot this is???

Maybe this'll jog your memories:

I thought this community lot that came with the Pets EP would make a great littls Victorian-esque-like cottage for a young couple or so, so that's what I'm converting it into...
These will hopefully be added to my studio soon - no promises with a specific date.
First, I have to finish that castle - which I think I'm nearly there.


A Step Away From the Norm

Yet again, I have another request I'm handling.  This one is not for a Modern build.  I guess you could call it more of a traditional.

Someone asked me to build them a gold and blue "Cinderella-type" castle.  The catch to it is I can't use any store items, expansion packs or stuff packs.  That's right, folks!  I'm using base-game only items and I can tell you it isn't easy to make a castle when you're limited to the base game only.

Here's what I got so far:

I'm not nearly close to being done if I can help it.  I have a lot I'm wanting to try to accomplish with the exterior - I just haven't figured out what else I can add....

Now Available for Download -- Terra

Hello Y'all!

I have a new lot available for download; this house is an ultra modern home that features an open floor plan, 3 bedrooms and a spacious bath.

This house was built for Sallymander, who requested the lot be built with Generations, Ambitions & Pets items only.  Some store content was used in the making of this house.  Items from the BahHaus & Surf, Sun & Sand sets were used.
Lastly, the Laddered Window was used in lieu of a similar-looking window available in the Late Nite EP.

3rd Party CC was also used with this house. Namely, 2 safe patterns and Cyclonesue's Cement Roof Trim which comes with the download.

Store content and custom content was kept to a minimum, all CC has been tested and is safe.

This home was only furnished enough with items to show the intention of the lay-out.  So, basically I mean that just the kitchen and bathroom have cabinets, plumbing and appliances.  There is no decoration.  So feel free to customize the interiors however you see fit. :)

Lastly, please don't forget to DL/REC/FAV.

NEW "Beachy" Modern WIP

Coming Soon!
A sneak-peek into my current WIP now that the crazy holidays are over.  This is another request I took up - this one will also be a quick build for me.  Thankfully, the requester said I can leave the interior bare for her to customize but she wanted me to create the house and landscaping.
So here's what I got so far:

Again, I'm always open to possible names people may have for this house, so do share! ;-)
