Coming Soon! West Hills

Another Modern will soon be added to my studio.  This one is rather large, and though I'm having problems settling on how the interior layout will be, I'm extremely pleased with the exterior, which is pretty much complete.

This home is another request I'm filling.  It is meant to have 7 (yes, seven) bedrooms and additional space for a music/art room.  Really, building houses over four bedrooms is tough for me because lay-outs become such a challenge at that point.  The reason it becomes challenging is simply because of the time it takes a sim to get from point A to B.  Since a second in real time is a minute in Sim's world, if it takes them 30 seconds of real time to walk from the basement to their bedroom on the third floor, that's thirty minutes of Sim's time. Which, realistically, that's a long walk just to get to your bedroom!

So, to try and shave down the time, a builder minimizes this by creative construction and keeping builds within reasonable sizes.  When you have to create so many bedrooms, keeping a house "reasonably sized" becomes difficult.  Nonetheless, I aim to please.   So I'm hoping after I figure out the layout and play-test the home, that traveling the house doesn't consume a sim's day.

If you have ideas or opinions on the home, please share!

Happy Simming!
