I’ve probably mentioned this already, but I’ve been alternating building residential and community lots in Whimsett Cove to avoid burning out on one or the other, and sometimes I build them simultaneously. I’m also throwing in a little gameplay because it breaks up the building/decorating and allows me to get to know my Sims a little better. :-) No one is aging yet, and even when they do, I don’t plan on using TS3 aging, but doing what Sandy does in her world, which is play whatever Sim-month I want to for however long I want to, and age my Sims up manually if their birthday falls in that month.
Anyway, that’s all for later on! ;) For now, I have more picspam for you, this time of a house and a community lot that have a bit of a connection.
This is the home of the Desmond/Jefferson family:
I started building the house shortly after Seasons came out, so Whimsett Cove was transitioning to autumn. Gotta love the fall colors!
This is a bit random…a collection of landscape pics from Matkooskee/Whimsett Cove. Some are the same shot, just at different times of the day, or from slightly different angles. So pardon the spam; I seem to be a little obsessed! *rolleyes*
I love this little island and have taken so many pictures of it…
So…I mentioned Fran’s cousin in my last post (he was the kid watching the ant farm in the lighthouse)…here’s his family and their house!
Fran’s cousin is this little guy, Lucas Mortinez, seen here fishing with his dad. His dad is Fran’s Uncle Elvis, who has been around since the TS2 days. :)
Elvis is a little older and grayer now, but he’s still a whiz at everything — cooking, cleaning, fishing, gardening, you name it. Unfortunately he has a bit of an unlucky streak, especially in the love department. The only success he had in that realm was with Lucas’s mom, who is gone now — she was struck by lightning while in the garden one afternoon. *sniff*
I have another lot from Whimsett Cove for you…the Village Point Lighthouse and Vivarium! I built the shell ages ago before Supernatural came out, but I got sidetracked by that EP and couldn’t decide what I wanted to do with the interior. Once Seasons came out and I saw that awesome sculpture with the shark jaws, I was inspired to make it into an aquarium of sorts…but since it has insects and reptiles, too, I’m calling it a “Vivarium”. :) (Thank you to Tedhi from The Sims Daily for the suggestion!!)
Ack, I’ve been so terrible about updating this blog!!! :-( I’m still Simming away, of course, and posting like mad on The Sims Daily, but I have been neglecting to re-post stuff over here as well. D’OH.
There’s a bit to catch up on, so I’ll jump right in! (And for those of you who already saw these pics at TSD, there is nothing new here to see! :)
I did post there a few more times about Lenore and Drake in Moonlight Falls, but I haven’t played them since October, so I’m jumping ahead to what I’ve been working on since then, which has been Whimsett Cove (a.k.a. Johnnywr’s Matkooskee).
Meet Delaney Litton (a tweaked version of Dee’s self-Sim from TSD), her husband Andy Cain (made by kimjimbob), and their daughter, Joanne (a toddler version of WOE’s self-Sim). (We have quite a few self-Sims posted at TSD, and it’s fun to re-use them in all sorts of creative ways! *insert evil laugh here*)
We’re sharing supernatural versions of our Sim-selves over on The Sims Daily, and I thought I might as well share here, too!
This is Jeneva Morphew, and her house is called — what else? — Morphew House. You can download just Jeneva, Jeneva + Morphew House, or just Morphew House by itself. Options are good.
Here’s Jeneva, playing with magic:
She’s slimmer than my usual Sim-self because I figure a witch knows where to find a steady supply of “Lean and Mean” elixirs. :D
And here’s her house…it’s a simple farmhouse built in the style of most of the other Moonlight Falls domiciles. And…it’s pink.
I had my first full moon in Moonlight Falls. And with the full moon comes…ZOMBIES!!!
Well, OK…just one zombie.
Instead of clawing his way out of the earth, or appearing in the shadows of the garden in search of produce, he shambled casually into the mini-mall on a sunny afternoon.
So…I built a mini-mall in Moonlight Falls, for a few different reasons:
- I wanted a place for my teens to hang out that wasn’t a “supernatural hangout”
- Lenore got a point of Sculpting from attending Art Club and wanted to gain more skill, but there was no room in the house for a sculpting station
- I’ve been wanting to do something with Sandy’s awesome gypsy set since she posted it
Plus I love having a bookstore that isn’t a rabbithole, and Moonlight Falls was just screaming for a comic book shop. (OK, maybe not screaming…I just wanted to make one. :-D ). I guess that’s more than a few reasons.
Anyway, I kind of cheated with this lot — I saved the Sam’s Market Diner rabbithole lot to the bin and then placed it across from the school. I deleted the rabbithole and built the mini-mall with the same basic footprint. That way I didn’t have to re-do the parking lot, the lot would stay relatively small (thank goodness), and it would kind of “match” with what is already in MF. Although the style ended up being a little more modern than I intended…
