The cute little Cape Cod I shared with you just a few days ago is now also available on MTS. It has also received a staggering 34 downloads in the scant 6 hours it’s been made available. I call that success. Go get it for yourself, or at least check it out, and tell me what you think!
I have made a non-CC version of the Hewlett available in this thread on Mod the Sims where it has already been downloaded 133 times. Not bad for my first house lot.
I want to take the opportunity to clarify a few things: although it uses elements from pretty much every EP, most are not absolutely necessary for the house to function. However, most of the windows are University windows. You can, for instance, substitute other windows (especially if you have nice CC ones). If anyone with base game only downloads the house, I’d love to hear what they think, how much work is actually involved to re-personalize the house.
Again, the only EP you probably *truly* need is University, because most of the windows come from that. So don’t hesitate, check it out and go get it!
This time, I have for you a really cute little Cape Cod, 3 bedrooms 2 baths with loft space on the top floor. It’s on a small lot, only 20×15, and therefore doesn’t have many outdoor amenities; that makes it perfect for those sims who like to go out about town. Continue reading
After the Hewlett, and feeling both unburdened by my stint with DOTY and re-invigorated by my passage through it’s halls, so to speak, I’ve found I want to make more houses again. So I’m working on a cute little Cape Cod with a modest exterior, but pretty big dreams on the inside.
The Hewlett began as a cc-free project, intended for a LivingSims challenge. Alas, by the time the challenge began, I was so far out into DOTY-land that I simply didn’t couldn’t finish it in time. Nonetheless I persevered, because I just love the design of this house!
Hello there my old friends. This post is nearly two weeks late, and I apologize for that. If you’ve been following this year’s DOTY, you already know I didn’t win. My entry finished in 5th, in fact. Not quite what I was aiming for, but OMG am I pleased with myself anyway!
Since then, I’ve made a (nearly) CC-free house I’m pretty pleased with as well. I have two versions of it, one with a pool for slightly smaller lots, and another with a pool and hot tub in the back yard. I’ll have a few pics to share over the weekend, and it will be available for download from right here.
What’s that? You want to see now? Oh ok, here you go! Continue reading
First of all, I should not have neglected updating you on the progress of DOTY.
Round 4 saw us taking the Smiths to South Africa, staying at Kruger National Park. I’ll post the pictures I did not submit here, they’re mostly just for fun, but you can find my entry here. Continue reading
My goal this year was to make it to the third round of DOTY this year, and guess what? I DID IT!
As you can imagine, I’m terribly excited. I’ll have more updates at the end of this week’s entry period. Wish me luck!
I’d also like to congratulate all those who made it through, including the LivingSims members who managed to be chosen out of the top 20. Well done to all! TO everyone else, I don’t know how they didn’t choose you, because you were some real and serious competition. Thank you!
I meant to post this a few days ago, but this round took so much out of me that I had to take a few days to breathe!
This time around, the Smiths are in Tuscany, Italy. We’re talking beautiful sunsets, rustic charm, the works. I chose a color palette I thought would work nicely in a rustic farmhouse, since we were doing the kitchen/dining area.
