    This is my first home for the project. I would like some critique before I take finale pictures. Also I do know I misspelled Fiesta x_x

    I like your use of LP culums and mix and match in the house
    the outside tub is a great idea, but might want to ad bath inside to, for season.
    the lot seem to have neede to be leveld before you build, that might be great to do next time
    why do you have 3 thrashcanes in the kitchen?
    great idea to use colors to enchant the pictures.
    maybe recolors the buble lights from generation, the stand out a bit.

    Thank you for your critique. <3
    Hmm I forgot about the snow *face-palm* Will defiantly be adding an indoor tub/shower.
    I didn't notice the lot was uneven. I will have to remember to check before I start the next build :)
    The trashcans represent recycling bins, I forgot to recolor them so they would represent metal, paper, and glass recycling bins.
    It was not my idea, I saw it in a speed build quite some time ago, and I really loved the idea, I just now figured out how to do it xD . Glad you like it though :)
    I might just replace those lights, I am not sure I am too fond of them Xo
    Again thank you for your critique, it is very much appreciated <3
  • anettesbanettesb Posts: 39,166 Member
    ah thats a good idea with the trach cans

    yes you see a slight uneven ness in teh egde... just leveling the whole lot before you build every time (even if you can't see it) is smart.

    I forgot to tell you how much I like the artist room

    That is such a cute home! I love the eclectic decor throughout and you've done a great job with the color scheme and textures. My suggestions would be more for how you take your pictures than the subject matter, and I don't claim to be an expert so you can take all of this with a grain of salt. First off, I'd suggest using the cameraman mode for taking your pictures. It can only be used in live mode by pressing the tab key. Moving your mouse will make the camera look around, the arrow keys will move it around, and the Q and E keys change altitude, important for those sim-eye-view pictures. This mode gives you so much more freedom to get just the right angle. Actually, here is a link to a little guide that probably explains it much better than I did: http://forum.thesims3.com/jforum/posts/list/740702.page#11779281 (Sadly the pictures are broken, but I think it makes sense and is helpful even without)
    Other than that, I would say that you don't need to take pictures of every corner of your build. Between an overhead shot to show the layout and a couple pictures of each room, it's possible to get a pretty good idea of how everything fits together. That is just a personal preference, though, and maybe you just did that because you were asking for suggestions, in which case I apologize. One shot that would be nice to see is the whole front of the house with walls and roof up. A sort of what you would see if you were walking up to this house from the street picture.
    Again, all of these are just suggestions and opinions. I think you've made a lovely little home and I look forward to stalking this thread and seeing what else you come up with as the summer goes on. :)

    agree camaraman mod is fantastic

    also shots I allways want to see:
    - overhead shot of each floor
    - front of lot
    - a few choosen detail shots

    I like the overhead shot becouse they give me a great feel of the lot

    Okay I have updated the Fiesta Shores Home. I have some pictures but have not uploaded them. Hopefully I can get around to making cover photos for the :p


    And my newest build is for 5 Sun Song Ave. and is called The Tea Pot. It is currently marked as a java hut and I think it could easily be converted into a bakery, if you have the set from the store. One of my favorite build since I started playing he sims, I really want the canning shed out back of the store <3 I tried the cameraman mode with the screenshots, it seem to work better. I also turned my graphics up so the plants would look a little better (they were bugging me looking all 2D xD) I think that is it. Here is a link to the rest of the screenshots: Album/Slideshow

    I tried to do that, but once I had finished with a house, the value/price went up to 200-300K, making it very tedious to have sims purchase it and move in :/

    Yeah I thought of that but I figured for the homes my sims would not be living in I would just do freerealestate and for the rest I wanted to make a few started homes and first "real" homes. I think it will work and if not most of the homes shells are not that pricey so buying unfurnished is an option :) Thanks for the comment btw <3

    And here is a sneak peek at what I am working on : D

    Two new builds, a starter home and a beach remodel ^^ I know I won't be able to finish the project before school but I will still work on it until it is done, I am have in too much fun with it :)
    Starter Home: Shipyard Manor- 1br, 1ba

    Perfect for that sim looking to build a bright future in sweet cheapness. Don't expect to have a red carpet when you arrive, refurbished wood and rusty tin makes a nice contrast to the salvaged windows and doors. It has everything a sim will need.

    Beach: Corbin Beach
    The perfect place to spend those lazy summer days.

    Just a little bump to get opinions :)

    Nice job on the beach remodel and the starter home. Given your description of the home, I would say you executed your vision of what you wanted the home to be very well. Nicely done. :)
