    Oh my, did I call Sims 4 desert world just Oasis Landing? Getting my Sims 3 and 4 worlds mixed up! Glad you got what I meant. :)

    Seabrook Haven is a wonderful house! I love the bright colours you've used, mixed with cream and wood textures, it perfectly captures a beach styled home.

    La Noche Cathedral

    This was done for the QC Challenge #18 - needed to make an Abandoned Cathedral.

    La Noche Cathedral

    It was QUITE a time consuming build! I knew almost instantly the overall look I was going for. Unfortunately, Sims 4 doesn't have multi-level windows, so that was my biggest hurdle. I played around with different windows, but nothing quite lined up or looked good enough. Took some playing around, but I'm happy with how it all turned out in the end!

    The exterior design of La Noche Cathedral looks so very great! :) The roofing and dormers look very nice! The furnishing of the interior looks so very greaf! It is a very detailed build, both the design and layout of the build, as well how the bulld has been furnished! The exterior wall texture gives a great to the cathedral. The windows look very nice in the build !It looks great how you have designed the graveyard. The type of fencing used suits the type of build, and the gargoyles look great near the entrance gate. The tombstones look great how they are placed in the graveyard. It looks very nice how the seating has been set up in the build, on each side of the aisleway. The two types of seating used looks very great! They suit well the type of build. Very nice pipe organ nook at the front area of the cathedral. The red candles are a nice touch either sides of the organ. The cobwebs are great touches through the build. The upper balconies /rafters look great! The wall candlelights are nice touches in the build.
    It is a very nice and very detailed Cathedral build! :)

    Your Cathedral is amazing, absolutely beautiful in fact! The interiors are spot on, very authentic looking and the graveyard looks very spooky :)

    Very dark spectacular building. Great interior and refined details!
  • CorwimCorwim Posts: 3,201 Member
    Wow, La Noche Cathedral has outstanding architecture, beautiful! The interiors are gorgeous and very accurate. Fantastic job!

    As someone who had built a church in Sims, I do appreciate how hard it is to actually achieve anything even remotely similar to it! Really well done :) I do also wish we had multi-level windows, it would make life so much easier (amongst many other bb functionalities :) )
    The little graveyard on the side is a great touch :)
  • misscbongmisscbong Posts: 736 Member
    @rosemow - You're too sweet! I really tried to pay a lot of attention to all of the small details, so I'm happy you like it!

    @masajo - Thanks so much! I was hoping to make an "arch" sort of look with the interior walkways, so hopefully that came across!

    @Dels - I was hoping it would look super dark and spooky :) so glad it worked out!

    @Corwim - Aw, thanks! It tooks ages (hours and hours!) but it was so fun to do! So unlike the usual types of builds that I work on!

    @lyssan - It was hard! Haha. I miss the multi-levels windows so much, especially in builds like this!


    I'm working on TONS at the moment. I'm also redoing all of the apartments, and hoping to keep many of them at the #starter level for Sims moving into them.

    Does anyone even download apartments? I didn't realize I would have to do it like a Room, as opposed to a house...

    Redo: 19 Culpepper House

    I am planning on redoing a lot of the apartments that are currently available. It's weird uploading them as "Rooms" but I think it's the only way for it to work, at this point. I always LOVED making apartments in Sims 3, so I'm looking forward to playing around with these ones.

    I will be keeping the names the same as the Maxis lots, so people know where to place them!

    This two bedroom apartment comes in at only $15,626

    It is great that you are redoing the apartments! :) The redo of 19 Culpepper House looks great! Very nice kitchen nook! It looks great how the cabinets are placed on either side of the kitchen windows and that there is a bar stool counter for sims to sit on the stools and eat their meals. The multi coloured techno poster on the kitchen side wall adds a great touch of colour there! Nice living room area for Sims to enjoy resting on the sofa watching tv or listening to music from the music player. The street art looks great on the wall! Sims will enjoy playing the guitar there. Sims will like sitting at the study desk table reading a book or doing homework. The clothes shelf and shoes rack are great home touches near the front door. The type of beds used in the bedrooms look very nice, and the posters and strings of photos on the bedhead walls add a nice look to the bedroom areas
    It is a very nice renovated apartment :)

    The graffiti on a wall just give it this extra 'it is rented and there is nothing we can do about it' vibe :)

    La Noche Cathedral is a gorgeous cathedral build! :smiley:
    I like your architecture, very cold and rustic! I like your windows placement. I feel your pain about struggling with windows. I really do hope they give us multi-story windows (and even doors). The ivies really give an old and spooky look. Your roofing is so wonderful too! And the gargoyles really add a great touch. Your landscaping is so very beautiful! I really love the graveyard. The use of ruined decor really give a spooky touch. Beautiful gardens as well! And your interior, so gorgeous! I really love the furnishing of this build. The organ altar is so creative! The use of crooked ivies, cobwebs, and cracked walls really give an abandoned-looking feel.
    I love it! I already added this to my faves! :smiley:

    And your 19 Culpepper House unit remodel is a fabulous build! :smiley:
    I love that it is based on a bad apartment look. The used of grungy-looking kitchen and bed really gives a pretty-ugly look, hehe! Wonderful furnishing too and I like that you used exposed bricks.
    I'm adding this to my faves too! :smiley:

    Also, I'm going to follow you in the gallery so I can keep track with your wonderful latest creations. :smiley:

    @rosemow - So glad you like it! Also, you're so close 100k posts! WOW!

    @lyssan - haha! That is exactly what I was going for...and it's cheap "art" in case the renters like that kind of thing ;)

    @RyeCris16 - You're too sweet! Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting. I had so much fun with the apartment build. I honestly LOVE apartments for the game, but find most of them pretty boring looking. So it's been great going in and moving walls around and changing things up...all within a set amount of rent!

    @LacedMetal - Thanks! That's so nice of you to stop by and comment :) And I'm glad you enjoy my builds!

    Zentia Modern Gym

    I really don't often build Community Lots. I've been working on a few for my "Coastal" neighborhood, but the current challenge for Quality Control was a great practice! I came up with a modern but zen style of Gym :)

    It's on a smaller lot, so it can really placed anywhere! It has locker rooms, each of which has their own sauna for women and men. There is a large pool and hot tub on the main floor, TONS of natural light coming it. The second story has a Yoga class, and a Boxing class. There are multiple types of equipment, and even a small "spa" area for gym members to relax after a strenuous workout.

    I hope you all like it! I'm actually pretty happy with how it turned out. I didn't clutter it up too much, as I figured a public gym would be pretty clean and organized.

  • rosemowrosemow Posts: 153,574 Member
    The colour scheme of both the exterior and interior of Zentia Modern Gym looks very nice! :) Very nice design of the exterior of the venue! The fenced plants areas in the front section of the build looks very nice. The windows look very nice how they are placed in the build. Very nice layout of the interior of the venue! The massage area is very nice! It looks nice how the half walls have been used there to separate off the massage table and chairs nooks. Sims will sitting on the chairs or laying on the tables having a relaxing massage. Nice treadmill and weights machine room. Sims will enjoy using the machines to keep fit, and sports shirt is a great touch on the wall. Very nice indoors pool and hot tub room! Sims will enjoy resting in the tub or enjoy swimming in the water. The triangle floor patterning looks very nice! The bathroom wall texture is calming. Very nice front desk reception area. The towels and spa toiletries items are nice touches on the wall shelves. The blossom is pretty on the counter for sims to see when checking in to the venue.
    It is a very nice modern gym venue for sims to enjoy visiting! :)

    The Vine Cottage

    This was an incredibly fun build to work on! I spent so much time on the decor and smaller "lived in" details, especially in the living room. I was going for a small English Cottage feel, and am working on a few more houses that will fit in with a "Cottswalds" style neighborhood.

    There is only one bedroom and one big bathroom, but it's really the perfect little house for a single Sim who has a bit of extra Simoleans to spend.

    Great builds! Really love Culpepper, such a great city style apartment and your gym is beautiful. Totally can see it in Beverly Hills.

    Eco Dream Kitchen

    This eco friendly kitchen is my submission for this weeks #oneroomoneweekonetheme challenge. I had so much fun making this dream kitchen! I love kitchens with lots of natural light, and really wanted to include that is this room. All of the plants are part of my idea of an eco friendly room: edible plants, cleaning the air, and encouraging new plants to grow.
