Default Redoing Past Work
Has anyone considered redoing your past work? To see how far you have come?

I suppose it depends on how you'd define "redoing." I don't think I've ever re-done something completely from scratch just out of curiosity, but I've certainly had generational homes (back when I actually played the game) that would occasionally undergo some pretty drastic remodels, and I've also had a number of projects where I've come fairly close to 'finishing' a first draft of it, only to then scrap the whole thing and rebuild it in a 'better' way, but in those cases it's pretty much always been part of the same creative process, it's not that my skills have changed all that much in the meanwhile.

I have been considering it a lot, but at the same time some of the new stuff I make looks like my older homes. Bare shells with dull interiors, so I end up ditching them anyway.
What I'm trying to say is that rebuilding anything may not change anything, or it won't look like the original at all.

If you remember me, I'm awesome!

I have tried doing the same floorplan over again, but the same house? ... no that's boring I can continue where I dropped off though. I do that with worlds all the time.

Yes I certainly have attempted redoing past work. Looking back at some of my first uploads I'm embarrassed at the finish and quality, I know my skills have come a long way since then, thank god.

Just take my Folk Victorian, I cringe looking back at it now.

Comparing it to my renovated version shows just how much better I've gotten (hopefully).

And I think that ability to look back at past creations, criticize, and learn from them is what helps us to grow and refine our skills and develop our style.

Sadly, I never did that, but I saw others who was succeed. Some creators share own works revisited and they do their next houses better! It's rare ability of builder, but a good one. Suppose that this trait can be trained.

Here you can see more of my creations and conversions for sims 3. ;) I`ll glad to see your comments in.
