Did a bit of a make-over after the Cooke's third kid became a child and their eldest became a teenager.

The house is in DV, I've forgotten the name of it but it's blue with a pond outside. It has one quite large room off the front room which I turned into a bedroom originally:


Though of course, with Peridot and Pearla getting older, and wanting a more girlier room - which Parsley wouldn't enjoy. I decided to split the room up into two smaller rooms. One for Parsley, and one for Peridot and Pearla to share.

Sneak peak of a lot I just submitted for upload. I had it built for months but only set the time aside to upload it today.

I had this image in my head of trying to create an apartment unit where there were quaint little shops on the first floor, and charming apartment units on the other floors. I like to think it turned out quite well! (There is actually a massive willow tree in front of the apartments, but I removed it to capture more of the building that would otherwise be hidden!)

Rebuild of House of Fallen Trees, the family home of the Tricous teens. Mostly changed inside layout (the entry was ugly and awkward), and the exterior entry. Left that whack cellar with the 2 vamp coffins alone (what IS it, 4 stories deep!?)

Made some changes to the porches - mostly not usable, but adds to the Gothic look.

Thankyou Rafael, one day it will be available for DL, when I get round to finishing it, still in the same state!

I'm slowly but surely building up my 'hood! Here's Central Plaza, this park thingy I built across from the library*.



Here's the library* in question.

EDIT*: D'ohhhh. I should stop writing things at night. It's not a library, silly me, it's a museum! Durrrrr!

Awesome lots Ather. I like the modern but old style of the building. I find that look hard to pull off.

Oh, thank you, dear Space Pony! @Snufflepaws

Even though my 'hood is supposed to be in the North-West of Simaginary Simerica (how many times can I shove the word "Sim" into unsuspecting words? Hm...), it's actually starting to look a lot like New York. Which ain't bad to say the least. Your "old but modern" thing hit the nail on the head as to what I was liking about it. Thanks for that! Now I know what feel I want my 'hood to have all throughout.

Sorry for the double post, but I built some more for my 'hood. I hope it's okay!

Those are looking good. I do something similar with phone booths though I don't put windows all round, just at the sides. I'm poking about to see if I can find a picture or two - oh here:

Thanks, Maxon. I think I'll play around with it - I like how you used those shop windows instead of the big modern ones.

The new park I have just spent the last two days building/putting together. I assume this is the right thread since it's landscaping.

Discovering Jodeliejodelie's (http://jodeliejodelie.tumblr.com/) beautiful Maxis lot makeovers has rekindled my attention to decorating. When I first found her simblr I downloaded every furnished lot in my enthusiasm, but unfortunately my game did not appreciate the massive increase in CC and I kept getting frequent crashes. So I had to remove most and be more picky. I'm currently only playing Strangetown and focused on that hood. Anyway, Jodelie turned the Beaker castle into a modern mansion, and while I really liked the furnishings she chose I realize I found it a shame to completely get rid of the old castle look. So I made over the house myself, using a combination of modern furniture Jodelie used in her version and old floors, walls, etc. I admit I'm very proud of the result, even if it's not 100% my own.











More under the spoiler tag.

Default Adele's New Place
In my efforts to start to try and get Polgannon's solution done (busy, busy, BUSY at work), I started by moving Adele out of the Manor. She did very well out of Blaise's death. She's making a new movie which she has been able to afford to produce herself and isn't in Polgannon so much these days but she was also able to build herself a new home. She went for a very modern style and built this monstrosity at the top of the cliff overlooking the sea. She still has to get the landscape architects in, obviously, but she's fairly pleased with the result.

I kept it simple in plan. This the lower floor - lounge area to the right, dining and entrance in the middle and kitchen to the left.

Upper floor, left to right: bathroom, guest room, Nanny's room, Oliver's nursery and Adele's own bedroom with tacky heart-shaped bed and ensuite bath:

Naturally, one of the first things she did was hire a live-in Nanny. Adele doesn't do childcare. Nanny disapproves of all the pale wood floors and white carpeting. Not a good combination with a messy little boy in her opinion.

In prepping for another chapter, I'm running into crashing problems taking shots in one lot in particular. It's a beach lot with views overlooking a center island full of urban development and lights. I need a very large view out over the water. I can't get that view now because the lot crashes when I use it, and I can't easily avoid looking out the back of the house. So after getting 2 shots then crash, 2 more shots crash again, over and over, I started looking for something to disguise the damned view so I don't have to use the extra large view. Like a giant wave. I couldn't find a giant wave but I found the fog created by Sophie-David. http://modthesims.info/download.php?t=500080

I think that's going to do it and nobody drowns in the process.

THANK YOU!!

Oh I love those atmosphere mods. I use them for photies all the time. The fog one's great - it seems to come in waves.

It definitely does! I'm just getting used to them. The fog surges and slides around the columns like liquid - it's really beautiful. I combined the fog with the medium/low clouds and it was so thick I couldn't see through it at all - wonderful stuff!

Recently I've begun a project of making over my vacation hoods. I began with Twikkii Island, and today I was working on Three Lakes. Improving the functionality of the lots is definitely a big part of it, but I've found that the landscaping makes the biggest overall difference to how it looks, and to it feeling more realistic! Today I did the Smooth Rock Spa and I am sooooo proud of how it came out! Here are a few shots that really highlight the landscaping.
