Planning

Sometimes a project needs good planning to end up in a good way. This is also where I test quite a few other programs, because I tend to rush things.

Worlds takes a long time to make. One way to solve that is to make them smaller 🙂

The Struggle

Building worlds never stop throwing new problems at you, this is just the daily struggle with my big project Stranda.

First Khmer Study

First Khmer Study

I wanted to take a shot at building Khmer houses. I was a bit surpriced when Googling for inspiration, the old traditional houses looks very similar to our own native traditional houses. While Googling for some of them I stumpled on a site comparing log houses here. I...

The Temple and a Bridge

The Temple and a Bridge

It's been way too long, but I needed the time to decide on a couple of issues. The thought of making recolors is also weighing on my mind. I have so many things to work at the moment, but I had to test a few things so I can get on figuring out new issues. I have been...

Sealevel for Houseboats

Sealevel for Houseboats

This tutorial comes as a help to others in the same situations. How to get the right water level for houseboats. Thanks to DonaldinaDuck we now know how to do that. The small pictures below comes from him/her and differ from what I usually make. Q: can houseboats...

Decrapifying Store Objects

Decrapifying Store Objects

I had an idea for what this post should be about, but then suddenly I had this problem below, and how should I fix this? With some pictures it's about double the size of what I usually post, so I guess it should be fine.  I was reading tutorials about how to open...

Cleaning the Global Layer

Cleaning the Global Layer

I'm working a lot on the pictures needed for the upload at mts, and I'm fixing up the text. They didn't like the way I organized it, and some of the information wasn't right or inconsistent. They also wanted me to make the DIY now. It makes sense probably, then I can...

Finished Projects: Stranda

Below this point the page is not quite finished. My categories needs to be rearranged *dread*

Lots

Without Martine

With this cursing moodlet finished investigated, lets just take the shots I need and be finished with it. I know I wanted to take The Blue Oyster as one of the community lots in the download, but I think I'll take the Dirty Town cafe instead. Out of all the lots for...

Cursed

I'm still with the Floods and it just became summer, but only rain so far. I skipped spring, it's nothing but melting snow, water all over and rain where I live ... and in the game. Summer is much better for taking screenshots of my houses. It's only a few days left...

My Zombie

I have taken all the pictures I need for the Sims. Now I need some ingame shots of some of the houses for my 5 community and 5 residential lots for the portfolio on mts. I just need winter to end, it's better to take shots of the lots while the ground is visible and...

Main Plan

Stranda Sims

I have made more than 180 Sims for this world, I can't be sure how many I need in total. This is a list of mainly resident Sims I have made for the populated version. Not everyone likes populated worlds, so I have made two different versions. I will not be including...

Lot Listing for Stranda

I need to know what I have made and what I need to make to fill this up, so here is the list. This is only for Stranda. Downloads list and Recommended exp, see main Stranda post. Today Nov 17'th, the number is 43 residential, 44 community and 15 rabbitholes. Empty...

Sims

Where did the music go?

The little player for the performance lot is installed because the lot is, but the game still replaces it with a default table player, and I can't find the dance floor player anymore. By going to my caw game folder with the caw game I was able to find it. I don't have...

Winter Sports

Lets start with the mining family Hope today. That could be some nice shots perhaps. I just have to fix the issue from last night on the business lot first. I can't see what the problem is, but I just move some plants and hope it's solved. Winter arrives, but the...

Sims pictures

New day and new possibilities. I turn my attention on Torstein Digre today. I had so many messages about child support, better check them out 🙂 When I get into the family Michelle is on her way to the Japanese sushi restaurant. She's being passed by a limo ... wonder...
