Away for the month

 

Hi Guys,

Just letting you know why I have been a bit absent lately. I've been travelling overseas with work for the last couple of weeks and I'm heading off for another week tomorrow, to Buenos Aires... But after that, I'll be back in action until January when the travelling starts again. I think I have a trip to northern Australia and then back to Japan in late January early February and then I'm back for a while again. So sorry I haven't been around as much. I definitely am still building and creating, I just haven't had a moment to spare in the last few weeks!

Next weekend is reserved reserved for Sims and jetlag! :D

 

Paintings & Prints

Well, some of you may have noticed that I've started to make some painting sets. YAY!

The main reason being, I often couldn't find quite what I was looking for in wall art and so decided it was time to get off my butt and make my own.. lol

Given this is all about me!.... *rolls eyes* My sets will follow a theme... the theme of me! What I want in my game! :D (which can be more commonly be described as beachy, nautical, vintage, period & antique themes... or a combination there of.... maybe with a bit of folk art and Americana thrown in for fun! Hopefully some of you, will have the same eclectic taste as me and will want this stuff too.

You can check out my first attemps in my upcoming items.... here: http://www.thesimsresource.com/artists/samusa06/downloads/browse/category/sims3/released/upcoming/skipsetitems/1

 

$16,500 simoleans and starter houses....

Why oh why did EA have the bright idea to make it even harder to start out in Sims 3?? Since when did inflation go down?? (ok, forget the global financial crisis... when else... lol).

I've been hating EA starter lots since I got the sims3 I mean just because my simmies are poor, doesn't mean they have to live in a place style left behind right?.... Wrong!... It seems we now only have 16,500 measly little simoleans to buy our first house with and it's driving me mad!... Try building anything worth living in for 16,500, I mean first of all, unless you want to live in that horrible new estate up the hill in Sunset Valley, a block of land is going to set you back about $2,700... forget foundations... I know they say they're only worth 4 dollars a square but... I've been keeping a close watch on the simoleans and the black market in my game is setting me back $44 a square!!... WTH?? Even the cheapest kitchen with no overhead cupboards, diswasher or trash compactor, island will set you back about $1600. Floorcoverings and paint have had a price hike with the cheapest being $4 a square instead of the good old sims 2 day's when a decent carpet would only set you back $1! The most basic of human rights in any civilised society.. a toilet!... will cost you a cool $270. Want a shower?... Well, be prepared to ante up $425 smack-a-roos! Ridiculous!

I guess my plan to revamp starter housing has failed miserably.... but I'll keep trying... I guess it's back to the drawing board for me! :)

EA House Flip Challenge

So after much umming and ahhing, I decided to enter the EA house Flip Challenge... I kept reading the post over at the forums and looking at everyone's great flips and finally decided that I had to enter.... late... lol... This weekend was a mad rush to complete all the required elements and Yay.. I got it in on time... just... lol

Check out everyone's entrys over at the Simalot forum!

Traditional Revival

Sooo... I've decided to depart from my shingle obsession for a moment and have created a new house called Traditional Revival. It's kind of a mish-mash of a few english styles (most notably tudor) to create a more substantial old money home for your rich simmies. I had quite a few build 'em up, tear 'em down moments with this one until I settled on the current design.. I'm still not that happy with the external colour combination... it's a bit bland... :s ... but you guys can recolour untill your design tool gives up!.. Check it out in my Upcoming items.... Out April 25th! Hope you enjoy. :D

The Cape House

So due to popular demand I have uploaded an unfurnished version of my Cape House lot. :) It's currently pending approval. I will let you know when it's due for release.

Cheers,

Sam
