More little houses :)

The first house in Tidal Peaks. It’s quite small and simple, but small and simple will be what I’ll aim for, it’s a little town and not too fancy (decoration may not be the case anyways :P)

I think I may give it to the town’s police officer (when I make them and their family). Also, added the ferry station to explain how the residents move in and out of town, I like how it blends into the lot :)

PS: Ain’t the GridAdjuster a marvelous thing? shastakiss :P

Tidal Peaks

A couple more pics, as I actually have the terrain decorated now, all I need to do is build and create sims.

I’m still unsure of all the buildings I need, but I do know that most lots will be homes, that it’ll be a little town or village, and at least I have a concept of what I want and I’m not aimlessly hitting the keyboard with my head, yay!

(This said, the rest of my hoods are on hold for the time being, as they’re the ones that actually got me to stop doing stuff, as I’m stuck. I don’t want to lose the brief will to play that I just got D:)

Do you know that feel when an idea hits you straight on the forehead, as if someone had thrown a stone at you?
Well…

OK, having just grabbed my computer back for today, I wanted to mention a couple of things..

First, I’m really sorry for the lack of activity and pictures that have been going on in my blog lately. Thing is that, I’m really out of ideas as to what to do in the game, and everything that I start, I drop it 10 minutes later. I can’t get into any project, I don’t want to build, nor decorate, and I’m just clueless on what to do.

I guess I’m due for a small sims hiatus maybe, until inspiration comes back. Idk, time will tell : /

Second, I’m sorry for those random Minecraft pics of this evening! I didn’t knew what to do today, so I went upstairs (I have a PS3 version, I don’t have the PC version, that’s also why I took the pics with my phone :c ) and started a world in creative, and randomly my brother came in, connected as well, and he started doing all these silly stuff ingame and I couldn’t stop laughing xD I had to take some pics because reasons, and well, I randomly uploaded some because, well why not right? :P Edit: I’ve removed the pics, idk, I don’t mean to spam anyone? (?)

Anyways, it’s just this for the moment. I guess. If I forgot anything I’ll edit the post in worst case scenario! I hope everyone’s doing fine, and Happy Simming for everyone!

So, I tried to run an ARR’ed version of Sims 4 last night, just to see what all the fuss is about. It didn’t work immediately, so after 10 minutes I just went “eh, fuck it” and gave up. Maybe I’ll try again later, but I’m really not that hyped about it. Perhaps if they make an awesome Generations…

I’ve been trying for a while to pinpoint the exact reason as to why I didn’t found this game appealing to play myself, and I think you’ve just hit the key with this one Meetme.

I mean, I always knew that the hood building limitations was something that put me off: I’m a builder, and I love making my own hoods, I like creating every lot and space specifically, to give it “life” and the feel I wanted it to have, and for the close future, I don’t think it was an option in TS4. But, there was something else, a point I couldn’t really get, and I wasn’t sure what it was. It may be this I think: I don’t want a “protagonist” to play in a world given to me, I want to play with my own little world, and everything within it, the way I see it suitable.

Don’t get me wrong anyone, I don’t dislike the game itself either… I like it, in some way, but not in the way I sim. Plumbbob knows that I’ve been liking the hell out of some people’s TS4 pictures, and that is because I find the game to be beautiful. The scenery and the sims, I really like, I love the cartoon-y aesthetics because I love cartoon-y myself, and if I did played it I’m sure I’d be able to play cc-free, because most of the items and clothes and hairs I’ve seen I like. I’ve stated already that I love the art design as well and that I wished that people converted the hell out of those things because I love them.

But… I don’t see myself playing the game, because it’s not the way I play The Sims. I enjoy seeing it, seeing people play it, but I don’t think I’d be able to play it myself. It’s like with TS3: I loved the scenery, it looked beautiful. But it just wasn’t for me.

Thank you so much for this post Meetme, I think you finally made me hit the right key on this topic :)

Oh is that so? Hmmm, I guess I could check again then.. I wanted to use them tbh, they look cute together imo (I need to explore more ships in the uni hoods though, there are several interesting sims!), and thought it might work.

Thank you meetme :D And sorry for the delay on my answer, I haven’t been able to get to the computer until the night, I’ve been most of the evening out! D:

So, I wanted to use Matthew Hart and Sarah Love from LFT to take a pic for the Totally Maxis’s monthly challenge because I thought they would look cute together, but I forgot that they actually only have 1 bolt together, and it made me kind of sad :c
Idk any longer if I’d like to use them (I still like them together though, even with only 1 bolt) because idk, but here’s at least a cute pic I took while I was checking their chemistry. I took it just in front where Matthew’s eyes should be, and I thought it looked like a cute scene : )

Exactly like that ^^ I saw them this evening and I was like “Yay! \:D/”

I admit to like the art ideas they came up with (for this kind of things at least), it’s a style I could see myself using in my game, even when I don’t think I’ll be playing TS4 in a close future xD so that’s where the magic of conversions kick in :D

Thank you for the link also, you’re so sweet <3

Oh, and for yandereplumsim

Rude :P
