... Yes, you read that right.
My new building project on the go is a series of homes modeled after the houseplans of the defunct, but well-known Canadian department store Eaton's. In the 1910s and 1920s, many families who were moving into the Western provinces could order all the materials and plans for the construction of a house.
In the Sims world, these homes are small and affordable (at least that's my aim). They won't be starters, likely as not, but they're on a smaller scale than "Upwardly Mobile" was. My intention is to build these homes CC-free, and eventually I will remember that I have Any Game Starter and use it...
In other news, I've also begun work on a career. In my Pleasantview, there has been a recent cult evangelization, and I needed a career path for the members to follow if they wanted, as well as for the leader.
This career may eventually be considered for upload - I'm trying to make it as non-specific to a group as possible, using terminology like "the Leader", "the Meeting Place", "the Meeting Time", "the community", "the outsiders", rather than something that may relate to a particular group or belief system.
The Cult Career is modeled after a patriarchal, polygamist, closed-community style cult (which is what my Brotherhood is in Pleasantview). The jobs and pay scale are gender-specific - so it may need to get split in a career for men and a career for women.
Hope you guys are all enjoying the evening!
