Today I have been working on the Suzhou lot, tested a dome on the Castle and worked with patterns. I have come across this guy a few times when I google. He has some texture that look very high quality and they are free. I used a tarmac pattern today to make tarmac for my world, and paving stone for my latest lots. Haven’t tested them yet.
I have also uploaded a really fancy looking glass dome for a Titanic project on MTS. Made a testing video for it. The creator was planning to make it watchable for Sims, but had some troubles with it being impossible to access. I kind of liked the dome and I can watch it if I want to. Wouldn’t surprise me if the sims can’t access it in the ceiling. I don’t know if I can upload it on TSR though. Have to ask later, don’t know if they consider it finished yet.Video
My video’s are getting better I think, but I’m wondering if I should make them only video in the game and then add sound later. The video with the dome is a little bit of both. So much back and forth. I cut it down from 23 minutes to 17. My English is better in writing.
I have finished the main part of the 090612 Suzhou Garden lot. Here is the floor plan.

The Master bedroom is by the entrance, the library/office on the other side. I added a spiral staircase in the main entrance/hallway. There is 3 or 4 big areas for bedrooms in addition to the master. I added a Drawing Room too. I’m not entirely sure what it is, but I have an idea of woman with embroideries in the old days. So I think maybe a room for art and such. It’s above the hottub and gym though, so I’m not sure how much calm and quite there will be.
There is also a Poolhouse without access to the pool. The diningroom and kitchen has a relaxing bar/seating area between them. Above the Poolhouse is the Sunroom. Not sure what to use either for. At the top I have 5 more rooms with a roof terrace. I don’t know what to do with those either. I have to search through the games more hidden corners to find out what to put there. In the basement I have a livingroom with windows out to the pool, and a gameroom. Those are below the diningroom and kitchen.
