Sims 3 HGTV Dream Home

Hello Again!

Just a quick update via piture of what the HGTV Dream Home looks like in the Sims 3 version.

As you can see, it looks more like the HGTV home than the Sims 4 version but I like both equally.

This Sims 3 version will have a garage and 2 parking spots for cars.  In the Sims 4 version, since there are no cars, will feature a 4th bedroom.

That's all I have for now! Check back later for on-going updates to all the WIPs I have.

Happy Simming!

Coming Soon! HGTV Dream Home 2015

If there's one thing I love it's HGTV and they've started showing the new Dream Home for 2015.  I decided to start building this home in Sims 3 and Sims 4.  Here's a variant of the Dream Home for Sims 4.  Sadly, since tile selections are so limited it's a little less Cape Cod and more basic.  But I still like this overall look. I have the interiors to do on this home.

The Sims 3 home I have the shell up and since I have more textures to choose from I think the Sims 3 home will actually look more like the HGTV Dream Home than the Sims 4 house does.  But since it's just the shell I don't have a picture to show for it.  But here's a reference picture of the real Dream Home:

And last, just because I can and because I thought her expression was funny, here's a pic of my mommy-sims in Sims 4 playing "sea creature" with her kids.

Sims 4 WIP

I'm working on another build for Sims 4.  And don't worry, I still plan to pop back in to Sims 3 to finish the two WIPs I've been sharing here.

Personally, (and off-topic) I prefer building in Sims 3 so much more.  Seriously.  Playing Sims 4 and building makes me miss Sims 3.  Part of it is that I'm so used to Sims 3 but an equal part of that is that the devs behind Sims 4 limited a lot of the things I enjoyed... like using the cheat moveobjects... I've said it before, I know, but I just can't get over how a basic cheat such as that didn't migrate to the new game.

Anyway, I'll be getting back to you on my Sims 3 WIPs eventually.  Here's a gothic Victorian I'm trying to build in Sims 4:

One of the frustrations I have with Sims 4 in regards to this build is the ability to not use the end wall coverings where I want them.  Sims 4 auto-places the corner wall pieces with the brick accents.  In Sims 3 I could choose where to place them and it looks much better, too.

Enough complaining though, I'm seriously trying to enjoy Sims 4, I promise. :)

Happy Simming!

NEW Sims 4 Home

Hello all,

Now that The Sims 4 is out, I have a home I'd love to share.  I'm still learning and practicing building homes in Sims 4 but my recent home I feel good about sharing here with some pics.  This is the 2nd home I've build in Sims 4, but the first one I'm sharing on my blog.  And, silly me, I didn't change the name of the lot so the home uses the name of the lot I built it on.  The home was built on the Potter's Splay lot in Willow Creek.

There is no 3rd part CC and the home is mostly furnished, only the 2 smaller bedrooms are left empty for customization.  Everything else is provided for and the home has been play-tested, though there's not really a need for play-testing since there's no moveobjects cheat in Sims 4. (shakes fist at EA)

This post is picture-heavy, beware.  And I'm still trying to grasp picture-taking in game, so my shots may not be the best. And you can click on the images to enlarge them.

These first shots are the different times of day:

Here are the over-head interior shots showing the lay out:

 And interior shots of the home:

To download this home, see my first home I created that really isn't my best (LoL) and to see some sims I've created, you can find my creations in the Gallery in-game if you search for PEACHES327.

Please be sure to leave a comment or "like" the item. :D

Happy Simming!
