Hello visitor,

In this and the following post, I proudly showcase my comp entries and shared lots. Hope you fancy em!

A small introduction to Twiggy a.k.a. Snn77 (Origin)
My younger brother introduced me to the Sims as he has done with many a pc game. I was immediately hooked to the Sims and played all pc versions except the Sims 3. Back then I had a World of Warcraft field trip that kept me away. Met my sweetheart in Warcraft's Crossroads and that's in short how I became a stay at home mom of the most wonderful WoW twins ;)

I have always been into the building and decorating of sims homes very much. When the Sims 4 came out, love was rekindled and now I can spend hours on a new lot, room or sim. I tend to make my creations very detailed. That is probably the little perfectionist in me lolz Until the Sims 4 I never really shared lots or creations with the community. Most of the lots I made for my sims only. Now I am sharing with the community and active on the forums since August and having such a blast! I truly love the warmth the sims community holds. And after seeing so many beautiful showcases of awesome creators and some encouragement from creators and fellow simmers alike I didn't want to stay behind. So in this showcase, I will be adding some existing builds, entries to build challenges, my inspiration, and new lot creations. So this post will remain a WIP haha

If you have any suggestions, feedback or chit chat for me, be welcome to leave some behind :)


BUILD CHALLENGE ENTRIES

Extraterrestrial Explorer
For Quality Control edition 18 (closing March 11) participants are challenged to create a home on stilts. This led me to create a 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom home in the shape of a rocket.
03-08-16_1-43-24c2a0pm.png
A lot of science items are used throughout the build. The paths on the lot are created using mostly floor paints and rugs. For more pictures and/or download, click here.

Hugs

    @Twiggy 5%20stars%20x50.png
    Eloquent Elderly Estate - I loved walking up to this nursing home and seeing the gorgeous building design and exterior, I also loved seeing the large driveway with the beautiful flowerbeds. It was great to see plenty of parking space for guests and the backyard is so relaxing and serene especially with a swimming pool for the guests. The inside was very well-laid out and designed, I loved how every room was personalized with different furniture and clutter. It is wonderful to see so many different activities for the residents to enjoy and loved the atrium. Overall great build the residents will be very happy here.
    Critique: I couldn’t use the dresser in the yellow bedroom due to the bed

    2nd Place Tie:
    Madaba Marvel by @Twiggy
    Newcrest Hilton Hotel by @Liziann1

    @Twiggy 4%20stars.png
    Madaba Marvel – Madaba Marvel is gorgeous and we love the background story to this resort. Great architecture and such a wonderful job blending in the rocks and the building. The landscaping is gorgeous with so many bright colors and detail and the star-shaped spa and surrounding area was a great touch. We loved seeing all the activities especially the pretty artists' area. The interior is definitely full of color and we loved seeing all the different themes to the bedrooms to cater to all kinds of guests. Gorgeous and creative patios that really blend in with the surroundings and we love the great floor patterns. The rooftop spa was fantastic, so relaxing with a great view. Overall fabulous resort well done.
    Critique:
    We found that the espresso machine on the patio couldn't be used because the sims couldn't access the grinder next to it, we found a kid's rug sticking out from under a normal rug in the kids' room which looked a bit odd and the curtains next to dartboard were poking into each other.

    the judges' review:
    Alien Hideout


    Martian Modernity by @twiggy

    Oooh…I love the exterior and how it was decorated in autumn colors and with pumpkins. Well done there and the waterfall outside is so modern and nice. I love how you use the basement feature and sort of hiding the rocket. So cool. The plants and the desert feel to the place is also very warm and inviting. You also have a teen study table as well as a child art table which is perfect for a family. The modern kitchen is very unique and warm. Love this. I really like all the art in the home and the décor is very Asian modern which is perfect for your sims’ undercover disguise. He reminds me of Sulu on Star Trek! Ha! I love the experimentation room and all the alien gadgets. I also appreciated that Yug had high rocket skills! Great job!

    Since there were only five of you, we will only give out first place...

    And we have a TIE!!!

    The first place goes to...

    Martian Modernity by @Twiggy and to Modern Alien Hideout By @vethesims

    Goodness, it was CLOSE! A good battle, ladies! And thank you for participating!

    CONGRATULATIONS! <3

    3rd Place:
    Portobello Park by @Twiggy

    @Twiggy 4%20stars.png
    Portobello Park is amazing we especially loved the theme building a giant mushroom. The night view is gorgeous and the landscaping is simply beautiful with such great colors and creativity. We love all the little decorated seating areas. Great activities throughout for young and old and we love the outdoor bar area. The building itself is amazing such great architecture and decoration inside is so great. The stage is very cute and with so much color and decoration going on it really gives that fairy feel. The use of floor stars around also really helped achieve that magical feel. Overall amazing park such a great theme and decoration.
    Critique:
    We couldn't use the bar as access to it was blocked by the lantern lights and flower boxes. One of the cairs for don't wake the Llama couldn't be used.

    Silvermoon Solace

    Feedback.png

    @Twiggy 5%20stars%20x50.png
    Silvermoon Solace – I love the WoW references and what an amazing creation. Your exterior and landscaping are stunning, so detailed and creative and definitely fitting for fairies. The interior was beautifully designed, I loved the hexagon-shaped rooms and each room had their own personality.
    My favorite areas were the meditation and yoga platforms, the fairies were over the moon and couldn’t wait to try them out. Your water features were gorgeous and creative. I also thought the roofing was amazing and your use of the urn, lights, and candles to add to the design was so creative and outside the box of thinking. Overall smashing build, well done
    Critique: Move along nothing to see here….

    Hideous Horrid's Hide-out

    The Mansion on Horrid Hill Results

    Hideous Horrid’s Hideout by @Twiggy

    So wonderful! I loved every inch of this space. My favorite area was the creative kids’ rooms. It looked like a cross between a crazy Alice in Wonderland and a vampire’s party. And I appreciated the kids’ playground outside and all the attention to detail. The only caveat was it was a bit too modern for Harry in some places. BUT I was blown away by your creativity and I’m SO glad you entered. You are very talented! I hope to see more from you!

    Since there were only four entries, I can only announce two awards but all will be appearing in the story at some point and you will be mentioned as the designer along with a link to your house. Everyone did such an amazing job!!! Well done! I appreciate you entering! I know it took each of you a long time to create such wonders and I can't wait to feature each of them!

    Great job and thank you all for participating!

    Bon Voyage? Bonne Année!
    This is my entry for 4Sims4 sixteen. The goal was to commemorate a favorite pack of earlier sims versions. I obviously chose Bon Voyage (Sims 2).

    Bon Voyage? Bonne Année! By @twiggy
    Bon Voyage Sims 2

    You hit high marks with creativity here. Pulling a resort from the Bon Voyage EP of Sims 2 was brilliant. And it had that vibe to it all the way through from the quaint alcoves to the décor. I loved the backyard feel this had and it had a touch of Asian influence which was great for Bon Voyage but also had an outdoorsy feel. Your sims had so much fun here until they collapsed in their beds. The only problem was I had to set it to a nightclub for you as you had it as a residence.

    All entries, although not many, were of high quality and really blew us away. Great job, everyone! See you next time!

    @Twiggy 3%20stars.png
    Lisa's Luxury – This home was a breath of fresh air was Lisa and I approached the property we couldn’t help notice how beautiful all the landscaping is. There is lots of bright pretty flowers, plenty of gardening and a gorgeous pool area. The highlight for me was the detailed roofing on the entrance, so creative and looks fabulous. Lisa was so happy to see the relaxing basement and couldn’t wait to get in the spa and unwind. Great clutter and decoration even though some parts felt a bit to modern for the cottage feel Lisa was after. The overall design of the house is creative and looks great, I myself especially loved the kitchen and the craft room was spacious and had tons of activities.
    Critique: Unfortunately we couldn’t enjoy the massage chair as the table was to close and we noticed that some plants were sticking through the fence. Although we loved the build it was a bit of a mixture between cottage and modern with some of the interior and Lisa was more wanting cottage without the modern or vintage. It was a shame you were just under budget for the brief as a minimum of $225 needed to be spent.

    OVERALL FEEDBACK:
    Challenge 9 has been amazing with so much creativity and talent, every build was amazing to go through and you all really grasped the employees stories. Still we are having some issues with items sticking through others normally because of moveobjects cheat and also some play ability problems, to fix this make sure you test your builds and scan rooms for items sticking through others. You will not win with problems like these.

    Hiya, fellow simmers! Would love to share my first mediterranean build i did in the Sims 4 a while back. It is called Arid Abundance. I very much tried to give this a colonial spanish feel inside and out. Myself i love spending time on the lot. As almost every build i made it quite detailed. Would really like hearing what you think.

    The lot is based on the following picture as inspiration.

    Let me share with you the very first family home i made in the Sims 4, Sybold. A build inspired by a great dutch architect, Sybold van Ravesteyn. He also designed the Blijdorp Zoo in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.

    The exact inspiration was this picture of his home in Utrecht (the Netherlands) he designed in 1932.

    Arid Abundance is a very nice Meditteranean build! :) The exterior design of the home is so very nice! The greenery looks very nice how you have placed it on the exterior of the home, and the flowers and trees in the outdoors areas look so very nice! The pegs look nice on the exterior. Very nice outdoors areas! The patios are very nice! Very nice water fountain feature! The starry shape of the lily pad pond underneath the fountain looks very nice. Sims will enjoy swimming in the pool. The open air dining patio is very nice! Sims will enjoy looking out at the nice floral and water fountain setting whilst sitting at the dining table eating their meals! The flowers on the table are pretty for sims to enjoy looking at whilst dining. They will enjoy cooking meals on the BBQ. It looks very nice how you have used the arches there. The birdbath is a nice touch in the area near the patio steps. Very nice furnishing of the interior of the home! The living room is very nice! Sims will enjoy sitting resting on the sofa and armchair there reading a book and chatting. The books are a nice touch on the table. The grandfather clock is a homely touch in the build. The master bedroom is very nice! Very nice wall pattern in the room! The curtains look very nice how you have placed them on the bed head wall over the picture to create a bedhead alcove. The candles give a nice look in the room, and the coats shelf is a nice home touch there.
    Sybold is a very nice home as well! You have reflected the inspiration home very well! The exterior of the home is very nice! Very nice outdoors upper patio sitting area! Sims will enjoy sitting on the seats there in the sunshine. The plants look nice on the edges of the patio. The interior furnishing of the home looks very nice! The green and grey colour scheme of the rooms looks nice. Very nice design of the kitchen! The stone texture of the kitchen walls looks nice. The hanging pots and the cutlery on the wall are nice kitchen touches there. Very nice window music alcove! Sims will enjoy sitting resting on the armchairs listening to the piano music being played. The animal wall pictures look cute in the nursery! The sunflowers pictures in the master bedroom are sunny for sims to enjoy looking at when waking in the mornings.
    The homes are very nice :)

    Awesome showcase Twiggy! I love how you share your inspiration pics. I've caught myself simizing RL buildings at times trying to figure out how to make them in game :blush:

    My fave has to be the Sandtrap Serenity with its peaceful, Asian style. Very zen :mrgreen:
