I really should be posting a Shmakova update, but I haven’t played them in weeks (even though I have something like 3 updates worth of pics), and I’ve been focusing all my creative energies on Gnomesby. RL is still kicking my patootie, so I’m just doing what I find the most fun.
As a side note, I was determined to finish the Shmakova legacy — just so I could say I’ve finished something besides the Shanleys, dangnabbit — but legacy play just isn’t doin’ it for me lately. Sorry, Joe! I’ll get back to you one of these days. Maybe.
One good thing about the Founders Challenge — it got me Simming again. It reminded me how much I like to build lots and create Sims and putz around landscaping a ‘hood. I’ve been having a grand old time. So I thought I’d share some more Gnomesby pics in lieu of a Shmakova update.
Criquette made some cool deco train stations to go with the railways, but they’re a bit too big for Gnomesby, so I made a little train depot of my own. It’s not deco, just a community lot. Here it is from neighborhood view:
And here it is in lot view:
A shot of the interior:
Sims can buy postcards, magazines, and souvenirs there, as well as grab goodies from the vending machines or have some fun in the photobooth. Alas, they cannot actually board any trains. Now there’s a thought — wouldn’t it be cool if there was a Sims 3 EP which allowed Sims to travel to other towns via train? Oooh. (I know, it’ll never happen, but I can dream!)
I also built a home and business for my mechanic/repair guy. There’s a huge garage, small office, and tiny house all on one lot.
This is probably the cleanest auto garage in the universe. I need to dirty it up!
And I made the garage so big, the house had to be teensy. But hey, Sears-Roebuck pulls through once again. They are great inspiration for little houses.
And now I feel my cold medicine kicking in…time to head for bed. Take care all!
