As it’s lost in a forgotten MTS post, I’m linking here to a message where I made a recap of how to create custom vacation subhoods, custom hidden vacation lots (complete with Witch Doctor, Bigfoot or Wise Old), custom locals, and tourists (how I do it anyway).
It’s been a secret dream to do this some day. Thanks for this recap — I think I read about it too years ago, and then I thought it must be possible to turn them into installable subhoods as well? (Copying the files to Program Files, perhaps as a replacement for the default subhoods.)
simsoversleep, do you want to join forces? ;)
444 FOLLOWERS GIFT PART 2/2 - SC4 TERRAINS
What would one of my followers gifts be without some terrains, these ones were made with holiday destinations in mind, mainly Cornwall (Brightbutter) and the Lake District (Woodwyn), both beautiful places that I 10/10 would recommend you go.
Brightbutter (can be seen in this post)
Surrounded by sea, with little bits of land in the middle to break up the blue abyss (and to make use of pretty water floors), got plenty of mountains for
goatsfarming deco, too. Has a small cliff area up top, which due to weathering will probably cease to exist in several generations.
Mountainous, very mountainous. Situated at the end of one of the tributaries of the nearby lake. Plenty of room to make a quaint fishing neighbourhood, or a mountain holiday destination. There’s even room for Bigfoot on his own little plot of land across the river!
Would you look at that, it’s two clever and beautiful terrains that I think would be really fun to play in!
Reblogging in part because they would even fit some of the requests I’ve been getting :)
Found this in LJ scrapbook. jodeliejodelie and other Dutch simmers (keoni-chan voleste ?) this is how I attempted to build canals with low wharfs a long time ago. More in this album. For your reference should you want to try for yourself :) It’s 3 ‘hood tiles wide, centre tile lowered with neighbourhood cheat. Thinking out loud one could try moving a 1-tile lot over the canal banks with Lot Adjuster to get waterfront townhouses…
Moar skies — now for you!
In honour of this little project I made a livejournal download post. The pictures have already appeared here on tumblr, but now you can go and download it to place in your own neighbourhoods. Yay!
If you want to comment, see you over there! Would love to see what you do with them too :)
Lazy, languid summer days… :)
Some more cloudscapes.
Seriously, I hope so bad that you will be using a good camera mod with these, and that you go out and explore in camera man mode.
(I’m using an edit of Gunmod’s here.)
Stormy skies in Greylings. That first one is getting really intense if you have a low horizon.
But when you look upwards, sometimes the clouds break!
(A good camera mod is really essential to enjoy the literal full scope here)
Well here’s a difficult one. I like both versions… (top and bottom pics belong to same sky)
Left (unstretched) has more colour variation, but the dimensions are slightly off — and right (stretched) has less of the dark blue in it, but the dimensions are right and also, the clouds do that realistic thing.
Would you want both options or should I choose? And if I do, which one?
