These are my 2 entries for the Halloween Showcase.
I built an abandoned warehouse and wrote up a story to go along with it. I tried to write it in a comic book/graphic novel kind of way. I don’t do scary/gruesome too well, so the story ended up too “cute.” But I hope I managed to capture some Halloween flavor.
Big thanks to jisgr8, Amoebius, CaliforniaBound, Mmyoko, and RalphaelNinja for letting me use their avatars in my little story.
A couple of us from the Flip Team decided to do a collaborative project for Fidler’s Extreme Mansion Challenge. It was a huge undertaking and I think everything that could go wrong for each of us did, but we battled on and prevailed at the end!
The rationale to our build is that we wanted to utilize all of our strengths. We figured this type of lot would be the perfect fit for a project like this. Not only did we have SimEve’s machinima and story-telling expertise, we also had great interior designers who have their own niches, so we did our best to showcase everyone’s strengths.
Best if placed on 25 Summer Hill Court. At over 800k simoleans fully furnished, this extreme movie studio contains over 30 different sets and scenes for machinima and story tellers to use to create common scenes they may need for their stories.
We would like to give big thanks to jisgr8 and RalphaelNinja for taking the time to test our lot to make sure everything functioned properly. ❤
Some important notes:
Since this is a massive lot, please only play this lot if you have a relatively decent system.
No custom content objects were used. The only CC on this lot are patterns from each person’s own collection.
No premium store items were used except the ones that are FREE. Please take the time to download the free items if you haven’t before entering this lot.
This lot is fully playable as a residential lot. However, since this is technically a movie studio, many of the sets have objects placed as props and are for decoration purposes only.

11/21/09 Update: The latest patch to integrate the World Adventures expansion pack no longer allows for the method I used to create the hot tub. Because of this, the hot tub in this lot will probably look off. I plan on updating this lot in the future, but in the mean time, you may want to try to just delete and flatten out that area all together. =/
Here is my latest build for Build-n-Share’s NYC neighborhood project. I chose a beach modern lot since I haven’t done a modern in awhile. It was very difficult to inject NYC into this as you don’t really picture a beach house when you think of NYC. So in order to inject some NYC flavor, I decided to give the interiors a luxurious trendy feel. While it is a beach home, the interiors can also probably be seen in an urban loft in the city… or at least that’s what I’m hoping. 🙂
Please note that I used premium store items for this build. I normally don’t for my uploads, but I just had to this one time. It is so difficult not to use them when you have them in game! So I’m sorry for those who do not have the Ultra Lounge set!
11/21/09 Update: The latest patch to integrate the World Adventures expansion pack no longer allows for the shallow pool area I created out back for this lot. Because of this, you may see some distortion. I plan on updating this lot in the future. Thanks for your understanding!
Been working on this one for awhile now. I’ll have to say it’s my craziest lot yet, but it just might be one of my favorites now. This was a project I took on as a member of the Flip This Lot team. The original concept was by amchristian. She submitted this lot for our team and when I saw it, I had a vision as to what I could do to it and how it would look like. I loved the concept, but when I saw the roofing an the windows, it just felt too closed in for that “heavenly” feel she was going for. So after fiddling with it a for a few weeks, this is what I came up with…
