WIP: Tudoriffic

I’ll probably upload one more build before the Late Night expansion. I’ve been slowly working on a tudor build. I’ve got most of the exterior finalized and will start working on the interiors. I am hoping to get it all done by Friday as my schedule is going to get quite hectic over the rest of October.

Coming Soon: A renovated traditional Japanese home

After my pair of starters, I was kind of struggling as to which build I should work on to share next. I finally decided to work on the lot I signed up for in the Builders’ Boulevard Sanshi Suimei neighborhood. It’s a Japanese inspired neighborhood project that BB has been working on since last year.

I am currently working on the interiors and should have it done in the next week or so.

I’m still tweaking various things, but here’s a sneak peek of what I have so far.

This home is built for the Ishii family of the neighborhood. For those familiar with the movie “Kill Bill.” O-Ren Ishii is the half Japanese half Chinese assassin also known as “Cottonmouth.”  Since she is half Japanese and half Chinese, I decided to throw in some chinese elements into the decor. The chinese elements also work better for sims, because if I were to create an authentic traditional Japanese home, well… sims don’t sit or sleep on the floor.  I am trying to keep the general architecture Japanese though, so let’s hope I succeed. 🙂

Some updates!

I am quite excited that my last build, S-Frame Modern, received a feature on TS3 website by the gurus. On top of that, it has also been linked on MySims3Blog and Sims3Updates, driving my traffic up to thousands in the last couple of days.

Because of this, I decided to do some appearance updates to this blog. I’m debating still whether or not I should just pay for a CSS upgrade so I have more options. I am trying to achieve a very minimal and neat look to the blog, since I want the pictures of my build to stand out rather than the design of the blog, but I am having problems finding a theme I like.

I’ll also be tweaking pages, depending on what sort of content I can come up with. I am thinking of doing a page just featuring my favorite interiors and a page featuring some of my fellow builders. I am also thinking about whether or not I should upload all of my builds onto Mediafire rather than just the TS3 exchange.

Anyway, this has been a boring post! Sorry! I just wanted to explain the mess if you happen to visit while I am changing things around.  ❤

World Adventures Preview SIMposium

Wow. What a trip! It was quite an honor to be invited to this event and I thank EA for their great hospitality.  The preview event was on October 29th and 30th. It was 2 whole days of all that is good. Not only did they demo the game for us, they handed out little prizes to us throughout both days and we got to spent quite a decent amount of time at our own computer stations to peek at all the new things.

My favorite part about this event was something EA tried for the very first time: live social networking to the community. I loved being able to reach the community while I was playing, who were chomping at the bits to get more information about the expansion pack, and share all the information I could live via facebook, twitter, and flickr. I think this is a brilliant idea and I hope they do this for all of the preview events.

Some unique custom content

Hello boys and girls,

Just wanted to do a quick post to promote 2 sites.  They both are fairly new, but contain some truly unique custom content for your TS3 game.

First off, Nevar530, has his website up!  He was the one who custom made that beautiful white lotus tattoo for me.  On his site, you will find some tattoos, other fashion, and some truly beautiful skins.

SIMulacra and Simulation

Also, please check out Celithralia’s Daedal Sims for some great custom content as well.

Daedal Sims

She’s got a great Japanese floral pattern available for download in 3 sizes.  I’ve used these patterns in many of my builds.

Hope you take a peek and happy simming!

Doublemint Twins

In preparation for the new Build-n-Share Neighborhood Project “Summer of Love,” a 60s & 70s theme neighborhood, I have created the original Wrigley’s Doublemint twins, Jayne and Joan!

Download Doublemint Twins

If you would like to see the sim versions, so you can see the various outfits and traits, each of them is also uploaded in my studio.

Double your flavor, double your fun!

White Lotus

I love my new custom white lotus tattoo for my sims!!!

Thank you Nevar!!!

Twitter

I have a Twitter account that I don’t really use. I signed up for it awhile back to follow a friend of mine.  It’s just been sitting there though, with pretty much no activity.

I’ve been getting some notices this last week or so that I am being followed by some people I don’t recognize. I am assuming it’s because people have liked my creations on this game and have decided to follow me on Twitter for updates?  If that’s the case,  I will try to remember to update my pretty much inactive Twitter whenever I have a new build, so I don’t disappoint.

Cheers and Happy 4th of July!

Thanks, General Nevar!

Just wanted to do a quick thank you to Nevar530 on TS3, for helping me come up with this kickass simblog name.

Hello, sim world!

Decided to start a sim blog so I have a place to post screenshots of my builds and funny sim stories.  I still need to style this blog, but in the meantime, I have chosen this theme because of the little tiny smiley on the very left of the page!  🙂
