    When you do start with mods, probably the best single mod out there is MCC, and Deaderpool is a saint about really fast updates, mostly there's a hot fix the same day the patch drops. Weerbesu with the UI Extension, which I cannot play without, updates also really fast usually within the same day also. These guys are invaluable to the modding community. LittleMsSam is another one with great gameplay mods who updates really fast. I usually don't download mods from people who take forever to update either.

    Just a suggestion. ;)

    Forgotten_Batuu.png

    I've gotten ahead of myself and forgot about some Batuu posts that I had already made on the Pack Discussion Forum.
    It is now Team Dark's turn to visit Batuu.

    I forgot that they have to learn the dishes before they can cook them.
    09_19_20_9_54_51_AM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    09_19_20_9_57_06_AM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    Home base.
    09_19_20_9_59_11_AM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    They arrive to the world with Kylo and Rey already in it.
    09_19_20_1_31_04_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    Zane will pursue the First Order missions.
    09_19_20_1_31_35_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    I played them up to Rank 3.
    I mainly just want to unlock First Order outfits for their cosplay hobby.
    09_19_20_3_31_22_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    Meadow is doing scoundrel missions, but I mainly wanted her to buy a BB unit.
    09_19_20_4_22_32_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    09_19_20_4_24_57_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    I tried the recruitment social, but I don't like that you can't get rid of the gun.
    09_19_20_4_31_23_PM(1).png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    She didn't go home with it, fortunately.
    09_19_20_4_33_26_PM(1).png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    Flashing that First Order money.
    This should be the end of my JTB adventures for a bit.
    I am sending team light to Uni for two school years. They will finish up in Batuu when I give them a vacation from Uni.
    09_19_20_4_34_39_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    The second post is what I have been working towards for my cosplaying sims.
    Olivia can't take these two anywhere without them whipping them out.
    09_19_20_9_49_04_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds
    I sent them to the University Store to get some items to take to Uni.
    09_19_20_9_48_49_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    She was inside, shopping.
    09_19_20_9_43_15_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    They are also picking up outfits to show their intended Universities while they are still in prep school.
    09_19_20_9_44_45_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    They have already applied for scholarships.
    09_19_20_9_48_15_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    I sent them out on one last cosplay teen outing at the cybercafe.
    09_19_20_9_51_15_PM(1).png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    I want Team Light (Olivia, Melonie, and Yuki to have one more cosplay outing at the cybercafe before I ship them off to Uni.
    There are still more costumes that I need unlock, but this will be fine for the whole group to dress up.
    09_19_20_10_21_04_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    "Vi Moradi. Why am I not surprised."
    09_19_20_10_50_00_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    "You just might find that I do have some surprises for you, Kylo."
    09_19_20_10_50_16_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    I like Olivia in Vi Moradi's outfit.
    She has Rey's costume and should be wearing it, but it looks so dull and boring to me.
    09_19_20_10_50_47_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    Don't lose your head.
    09_19_20_10_52_32_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    The expressions on their faces are telling:
    09_19_20_10_52_13_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    Meadow and Melonie didn't have anything to do, so I moved them to some acting marks.
    09_19_20_10_53_04_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    09_19_20_10_53_31_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    Death scenes.
    09_19_20_10_53_43_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    Meadow flubbed hers and went into a laughing fit.
    09_19_20_10_54_06_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    09_19_20_10_54_29_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    Nice job, Mel'.
    09_19_20_10_54_43_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    I believe Olivia is outclassed here.
    09_19_20_10_55_51_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    That's Yuki Behr in the storm trooper armor.
    09_19_20_10_56_57_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    The monkey around interaction was the only thing I could come up with in the moment.
    09_19_20_10_57_35_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    "And down she goes."
    09_19_20_10_58_29_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    "You have lost, Vi. Where is the resistance bunker?"
    09_19_20_10_59_22_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    Photoplay after cosplay.
    09_19_20_11_05_31_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    09_19_20_11_07_20_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    09_19_20_11_08_37_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    And why not take in a movie to finish off the evening?
    09_19_20_11_13_06_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    09_19_20_11_13_23_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    Someone wake up Cassandra.
    09_19_20_11_19_42_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    I have to decide what pictures they will take for their Uni dorm rooms.
    09_19_20_11_33_23_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    These two will be life-long friends.
    Do sims talk to each other while knitting and rocking in rocking chairs?
    They will be doing that in old age.
    09_19_20_11_34_38_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    SO... this is pretty much the point of the pack for me. :D

    Your game looks so stunning, I would never have uninstalled it 😦! Wonderful new version of the student hall.

    I am looking over some old pics and past game play does look fun.
    EA just needs to add more depth to personalities and socialization. Lifestyle and Sentiments is at least a movement in the right direction. It doesn't look as deep as I would have liked, but I have had a couple of nice experiences so far.

    It's finally the weekend of their first term and they can catch a break from academics.
    And they spend part of it working off all the weight from fatty foods set out by the dormies.
    Actually I'm not sure about the timing of this. It's been a while since this happened.
    11_19_20_6_48_44_AM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    A campus creativity festival popped up.
    This is great for Yuki, who is a Fine Art major. Olivia is an Art History major, so she benefits as well.
    11_22_20_4_21_28_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    I can't say the event is actually thrilling.
    They painted some murals, took pictures with the mascot, joined some really lame school cheers, and had a bit to eat.
    I guess it's enough to say they participated in campus activities.
    11_22_20_4_23_06_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    Yuki did gain a sentiment towards Melonie.
    So I had her give Melonie a small gift as an inspired token of appreciation towards Melonie..
    11_22_20_4_25_14_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    They had a chance to reconnect with their dorm-mates who had moved out.
    11_22_20_4_37_51_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    And lo and behold, a Hijinks Festival in San Myshuno.
    This is perfect for Melonie who is a Drama major and is into comedy.
    Yuki and Oliva are getting a jump on next weeks homework.
    11_22_20_5_04_46_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    Melonie is drinking the Jokesters punch.
    11_22_20_5_05_03_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    They will finish off their term papers on Sunday.
    11_22_20_5_06_00_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    Now they can enjoy the festival.
    11_22_20_5_14_32_PM(1).png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    "We can enjoy this thing, but we must appear that we disapprove of it at the same time."
    Jeez, EA, let our sims be naughty.
    11_22_20_6_15_55_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    Melonie spent the evening spamming jokes.
    The Jokesters won and the fireworks went off at the end of the event.
    11_22_20_6_19_47_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    Out come the lightsabers.
    11_22_20_6_22_38_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    Never in my wildest sim dreams would I have ever believed that my sims would be dueling with lightsabers beneath a fireworks filled sky in San Myshuno.
    11_22_20_6_20_18_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    Fun night actually.
    Now they can focus on getting this term over with.
    11_22_20_6_23_24_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    This was funny.
    This girl called Olivia during the festival saying she was locked out of the dorm.
    She was there when they arrived. I assume she was locked outside of the building.
    11_22_20_6_24_05_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    I have no pictures of them cramming and going to take their final exams.
    I was to focused on playing that I did not take any pics until it was over.
    11_22_20_8_31_05_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    I was glad that it was over, for now.
    They have two more terms to go, but now it's time to rotate over to Meadow, Cassandra and Zane.
    They have to start their first two terms at Uni. So, it's time to go back to Smuggsworth College Prep.
    11_23_20_7_54_31_AM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    A few things mush happen before Meadow, Cassandra and Zane head off to Uni.
    The first order of business is to do something about all that cash generated by selling all those spawned future cubes.
    Ambrosius Wood, the school administrator is quite happy for this injection of cash. He will be very generous to school sponsered vacation trips for the students.
    11_23_20_7_53_55_AM(1).png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    Speakiong of vacations, It looks like Bella has come to see Cassandra before they leave for Mt. Komorebi.
    11_23_20_7_55_59_AM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    Yes, we are finally getting to the pack that made me change my mind about abandoning The Sims 4.
    Melonie, make the call.
    11_24_20_7_37_20_AM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    "Have fun, but not too much fun, Cassandra."

    SE2(1).png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    I am finally playing Snowy Escape.
    My first task was to provide a vacation home for six sims.
    I copied the Ito house to this location and added more rooms.
    11_25_20_6_49_45_AM.png

    Meadow Thayer trying out some SE wear.
    11_25_20_7_23_57_AM.png

    My sims are sims from the various neighborhoods who attended Smuggsworth College Prep school.
    Three of them are now at Uni. The other three are waiting to rotate in. They are now all on vacation at Mt Komorebi.
    11_25_20_7_54_33_AM.png

    I had to sneak a look at the ski slopes.
    Awesome.
    11_26_20_6_22_25_AM.png

    Socks.
    I need to provide socks:
    11_25_20_7_58_21_AM.png

    I knew I wanted to put an ice skating rink somewhere.
    Placement is limited, so I opted to put one in this fancy vacation rental.
    Japanese folk music is playing over the speakers and it is really selling the environment.
    11_26_20_6_19_35_AM.png

    Olivia still had energy, so she worked on some rock climbing skills.
    11_26_20_2_57_28_PM(1).png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    Better fail here than on the mountain.
    11_26_20_2_59_28_PM(1).png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    11_26_20_2_59_56_PM(1).png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    Enough. Get some sack time.
    11_26_20_3_00_21_PM(1).png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds


    Next day.
    11_26_20_4_14_30_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    I probably should have someone confiscate all the lightsabers.
    However... I am getting a sort of Kill Bill vibe here.
    11_26_20_9_41_00_PM.png

    It's time to explore the world.
    11_26_20_4_24_14_PM.png

    Starting with the slopes.
    11_26_20_4_25_05_PM.png

    I love that they form a Que, and you can make them make continuous runs.
    11_26_20_4_28_55_PM.png

    First up is Olivia.
    11_26_20_4_29_50_PM.png

    Wonderful.
    11_26_20_4_30_18_PM.png

    Not surprising for a first one.
    11_26_20_4_31_15_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    Actually, I wouldn't mind seeing someone fall higher up.
    In a purely comical way, of course. o:)
    11_26_20_5_25_26_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    There is something about Yuki.
    She seems to do well at everything she tries, like she has a hidden luck trait.
    Everyone else fell at the end of their run.
    11_26_20_5_24_16_PM.png

    It's probably good to have that lap top in her inventory.
    With this many sims, I can give her something to do while I focus on others.
    11_26_20_5_27_20_PM.png

    That does look like it is courting death.
    11_26_20_6_21_58_PM.png

    They tried hiking the following day.
    11_26_20_9_46_58_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    I probably should have picked a destination instead of hiking around.
    11_26_20_9_48_09_PM.png

    I like the atmosphere of the bar, but it's unfortunate that it does not serve Japanese food.
    11_26_20_10_22_30_PM.png

    They hit the slopes again at the end of the day.
    11_27_20_8_45_32_AM.png

    I will save mountain climbing for the next trip.
    11_27_20_8_50_30_AM.png

    They had improved their skiing and they were getting tired.
    11_27_20_8_53_42_AM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    It was time to wrap it up and go home.
    11_27_20_8_54_26_AM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    They were all so sad because they were really bad at skiing.
    They must have imagined themselves taking to it like fish to water.
    11_27_20_8_55_18_AM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    That's okay. It will just make future trips much better when they have improved their skills.11_27_20_8_57_56_AM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    Olivia and Meadow weren't that tired when they arrived.
    11_27_20_8_58_22_AM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    They worked on their ice skating skills.
    11_27_20_8_58_59_AM.png

    Melonie decided to watch.
    11_27_20_11_37_21_AM.png

    I really liked this outing.
    The setting, the skiing, it might turn out to be a lightweight pack, but I like what it adds.
    I don't plan to do any mountain climbing. I might save it for a second or third trip.

    I do wish they would have been a little more aware of the fireworks.
    It was a great time for a lightsaber battle instead.
    It was dramatic though.

    Loved your update! I love the rental lot you've built, is it on the gallery?

    I sent my three sims, mother, son and daughter and had them stay at the fancy rental to the left of the bathhouse. I had to send them home after one day, they were freezing to death, lol. They live in Sulani and dumb me sends them to a freezing vacation. Those houses that were supposedly built by game changers, forget about them. I had to rework this house somewhat and they still had pathing issues to go down the step to the tv room. Anyway, new rental in the warmer neighborhood should be what they will enjoy. I want to make this the vacation house for all my sims to reunion there.

    That house is a modification of one of the game changers lots.
    I am not crazy about their build abilities either. The ceiling was really messed up like they never play the game down at sim level where they can see the ceilings.

    Strangely, I've come across missing stuff like no toilet or walls they forgot to wall paper.
    Just a couple of minor things, but you would think they wouldn't have missed a thing if they were building for EA.

    Anyway, I uploaded the lot.
    I haven't had a true playtest of it yet, so it could have issues still.

    Mind the lot traits.
    I set earthquake zone. I've never used it before and Japan seemed like a perfect use for it.

    I was very underwhelming. :p
    I never heard any rumbling or saw any shaking. Only tense moodlets from my sims.

    I have to say I am really enjoying my game since getting Snowy Escape and leaving out Eco Lifestyle.
    Being on vacation is helping with that too. So much free time. :)

    My game play is way ahead of what I am posting here.
    I have a lot of updates to make.

    Oh trust me, when the camera started shaking it scared me, lol. I have a lot set with the earthquake setting also and you are going to like it. :D
    That's about as bad as the volcano erupting and that's scary too. It doesn't happen very often, thank heavens because the sims would have to have therapy if it occurred more than that. :D

    Thanks for the link, your builds are great!

    Hmm... maybe my sims just experienced a minor tremor.

    I am so far behind in updating this thread.
    I have been enjoying my sims quite a bit and my sims, as a whole and as of now, are gaining momentum in their progression.

    I stopped buy the lounge in the Wakaba district.
    The first thing that I noticed was that there was no Karaoke machine. And then I noticed there was not enough space for the big one. 11_29_20_5_35_53_PM(1).png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    So I fixed that.
    11_27_20_5_00_22_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    Most of these people are my sims.
    I see I am going to have to use Get Together and some CAS sims to make this place more interesting.
    11_27_20_5_00_46_PM(1).png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    This is the last day of my sims vacation.
    I wanted them to get in more skiing so they could get good enough not to keep having sad emotions from bad skiing.
    The snow festival happened to start this day.
    11_28_20_12_50_04_AM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    It's a nice setting, but doesn't seem like there is much to do besides play in the snow.
    11_28_20_1_00_06_AM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    And that's why we are here.
    11_27_20_8_38_32_AM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    My sims got banged up from some aggressive skiing.
    11_27_20_8_39_12_AM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    They also got a little taste of rock climbing.
    11_28_20_9_35_16_AM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    I sent them to the onsen to heal.
    It doesn't matter how clean they are. If they don't shower up...
    11_26_20_7_53_07_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    ....they might as well be filthy.
    11_26_20_7_52_06_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    After they were feeling better, they hit the slopes again to make use of their remaining hours.
    11_28_20_1_05_54_AM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    This is really pretty.
    11_28_20_1_08_40_AM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    I really enjoyed this.
    They will certainly return before they hit Uni again.
    11_28_20_1_12_50_AM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    11_28_20_1_13_03_AM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    Now I have to finishing prepping Meadow, Cassandra, and Zane for their two terms at Uni.
    I believe I will have Olivia, Melonie, and Yuki return home to reconnect with their families.11_28_20_10_38_52_AM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds
    I will also make some edits to Mt. Komorebi to make it more enjoyable

    68_Komorebi_Edits.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    Komorebi was nice, but I was feeling the lack of a nice dining experience.
    This is one of the rental homes (5-1-4 Kiyomatsu) that I converted into a Japanese restaurant.
    12_03_20_4_43_22_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    A little bit of lot switching was done for this
    I bulldozed the park and put the Local Bar in its place on the left.
    My new Japanese restaurant was then placed where the Bar used to be.
    12_03_20_4_43_02_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    I renamed the property Daichi-No-Megumi.
    It's named after an actual Japanese restaurant in Hokkaido.
    12_03_20_3_50_52_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    My sims are currently on vacation here, so I gave it a test run.
    12_03_20_12_51_49_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    I set up the uniforms and food menu.
    12_03_20_12_52_51_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    What I like about this (beside being already built) is that since it is a home, it's divided up into rooms.
    12_03_20_12_53_24_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    And the particular layout of this lot should lend itself more to privacy if you use the furthest dinning room.
    Poor Yuki, she's still sore from snowboarding.
    12_03_20_12_53_41_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    I really like this little cozy space.
    12_03_20_3_09_56_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    Oh wow!
    12_03_20_3_10_55_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    These are my sims too.
    They are waiting in rotation for me to get back to them. I have a lot of sims.
    12_03_20_3_10_27_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    Someone should be wearing a hair net.
    12_03_20_3_11_07_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    Anyone know which Game Changer create this lot?
    12_03_20_3_12_22_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    12_03_20_3_13_11_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    12_03_20_3_13_28_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    Diner is served.
    12_03_20_3_13_42_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    Ohh... this is dessert.
    I have not played Dine Out in a while. I think I should have only ordered the main course. It look like it went with the last meal ordered and that was dessert.
    12_03_20_3_14_01_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    Live and learn.
    These rooms seem to be working well. No distractions.
    But there were no celebrities here to really test it.
    12_03_20_3_17_32_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    Those macaroons weren't making a big enough dent in their hunger.
    12_03_20_3_18_05_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    Oh well, bathroom breaks and order again.
    It's nice that there is a bathroom very close by.
    12_03_20_3_23_28_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    I simply ordered the same thing for everyone.
    They seem happy with it.
    12_03_20_3_24_00_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    This was a really nice dining experience, besides the mis-order on my part.
    They already have good friendships going, but they gained some sentiments and I was scoring whims that I could grant through conversations the whole time.
    12_03_20_3_27_41_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    Did you just gain some weight, Olivia?
    12_03_20_3_27_51_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    It's 2:00 in the morning now.
    They got a late start because they were trying to heal up at the Onsen bath after skiing before coming here.
    12_03_20_3_29_50_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    Melonie thanked the chef for a fine meal.
    Which is ironic because she will call them the next morning to complain of food poisoning.
    12_03_20_3_30_55_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    And that was that.
    A pleasant night out in Komorebi.
    12_03_20_3_31_49_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    Some simmers say University stresses them out.
    Well Dine Out stresses me out. I want everything to go right, but there is a risk that something might break the evening.12_03_20_3_32_03_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    I am making them walk home.
    They can walk it off and I can take in the setting that is Mt Komorebi.
    12_03_20_3_32_41_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    12_03_20_3_33_06_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    I couldn't help going in again for some embellishments.
    12_03_20_10_52_05_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    Dine Out has some really nice objects for its theme.
    12_03_20_10_56_42_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    12_03_20_10_56_55_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    12_04_20_1_01_02_AM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    I was hoping all these restrooms up here would keep sims from the private area. I noticed some chatting up sims having dinner in the more public area.
    12_14_20_7_49_22_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    I was thinking about adding more tables, but looking at the poor waitress, I think four is enough.
    She goofed up and dropped some dinners and has been trying to clean it up, but keep getting called to serve the next customer.
    12_14_20_7_45_19_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    She needs help, seriously.
    12_14_20_8_56_29_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    I spruced up the exterior and I was very happy with it all.
    12_03_20_11_20_52_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    I uploaded it if anyone wants it.

    I have your restaurant and it looks great. I haven't had the time to place it and check it out but looks great.

    I got your lot for the 50x50 and I really like it! This is a place for my vampire families to go on vacation. Thanks for sharing!

    Rl is severely cutting into my simmie time, will have much more time after Christmas. o:)

    69_Shorter_Teens.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds
    I saw someone with a shorter sim on the forums.
    I thought someone had finally made a decent height mod, so I went off searching for one.
    It turned out that what I saw was merely a side product of a pose mod.
    12_20_20_1_33_56_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    But anyway, I found the Auto Shorter Teens mod.
    It came in two versions. This is the short version, which was too subtle for me.
    You can tell the teen is shorter if you observe carefully.
    12_20_20_1_17_17_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    But that wasn't good enough.
    12_20_20_1_35_59_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds
    Now that is obviously a teen and not a young adult.
    12_20_20_1_48_50_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    This is so important to me.
    This stage should give you a clue as to the adult your sim will become.
    A child gives you no idea, and then suddenly they are an adult.
    12_20_20_1_50_47_PM(1).png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    They look like they have their teen stage to live out instead of looking like they missed it.
    12_20_20_1_51_33_PM(1).png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    I ran her through some tests.
    She's actually brushing her teeth instead of her eyeballs.
    12_20_20_1_58_46_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    But there has to be problems somewhere.
    The problem is with seating. Her derriere clips into the chair.
    12_20_20_1_52_22_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    Should be a problem with all seating situations.
    12_20_20_1_59_55_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    A bike should show any problems.
    12_20_20_1_53_23_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    Again, the seat, and the leg location here is in the most extreme position.
    That's the worse it can get.
    12_20_20_1_53_41_PM(1).png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    Meditation looks really bad.
    I doubt meditation will be a thing with these shorter teens.
    My taller ones did it, but they look like adults.
    12_20_20_3_23_30_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    She can swing a lightsaber.
    12_20_20_3_35_19_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    It's pretty obvious who the teen is.
    I do believe I will be keeping this mod.
    12_20_20_3_37_00_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    For those of you who are rally familiar with my sims, this is Ling.
    Only, she is not Ling anymore.
    12_20_20_2_23_37_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    I remade the Chen family since we have Snowy Escape now.
    Ling is now Nami Kimura and they are a Japanese family living on Mt. Komorebi.
    The original Ling's back story was that she was half Chinese and half Japanese.
    I am way ahead of myself here and will have more of her family later.

    @CK213 , I play with that same mod, not the shorter version, so the clipping is not that bad :) And in most cases , for pictures, selecting different angle for the picture hides it petty well :)


    ETA: But now after looking at your pics, I might change it tho the shorter version.

    Hi! So glad you guys found a decent teen height mod. For me, I've put up with this for this long, plus I really don't mind playing teens they way they are. I usually dress them as teens and not as adults so that's a plus.

    When you do start with mods, probably the best single mod out there is MCC, and Deaderpool is a saint about really fast updates, mostly there's a hot fix the same day the patch drops. Weerbesu with the UI Extension, which I cannot play without, updates also really fast usually within the same day also. These guys are invaluable to the modding community. LittleMsSam is another one with great gameplay mods who updates really fast. I usually don't download mods from people who take forever to update either.

    Just a suggestion. ;)

    I recently put in Have Some Personality Please, Whim Overhaul, and UI Cheats.
    These three have made the game more interesting. NPC are socializing using socials that I have never seen the game use before.
    Whims are better now, and I can zap away moodlets that I see as problematic to the appropriate emotional response.

    I had taken out Slice of Life and Meaningful Stories because I went back to being mod-light.
    But my game play has been very interesting since yesterday. I can see why some simmers who have their game modded are really enjoying it.

    Oh, and I finally got around to finding out what was creating odd looking doll-like sims in my game.
    It was a dress of all things. I thought it was makeup or an accessory.

    Right now I have a Poll on the General Discussion forum about a scenario that has risen because of these mods+sentiments.
    Anyone reading please vote:

    I had some awesome simming this past week. So that means I am way behind on this forum.

    Back to Komorebi.
    I wanted to add more Sims that I liked to Mt. Komorebi. More options for friends and love interests.
    I needed to cram 5 sims into this 2 person starter home.
    11_29_20_10_22_15_PM.png

    Renovation time.
    11_29_20_9_59_35_PM.png

    Unfortunately the Nishidake elders will be moving on to a retirement village while their granddaughter remains here and adds four roomates.11_29_20_10_18_52_PM.png

    I made a copy of the house for five males.
    I will probably download them from the gallery.
    11_29_20_10_08_03_PM.png

    I've added 3 roommates to Kaori's house.
    11_30_20_8_18_30_AM.png

    I need to edit Akari (left) some more.
    11_30_20_8_18_54_AM.png

    Kotori's a hot head.
    Her name is too similar to Kaori's.
    11_30_20_8_20_02_AM.png

    She's mad because Akari is wearing her outdoor shoes inside.
    11_30_20_8_19_09_AM.png

    Akari was embarrassed, so I had them both discuss their moods.
    Akari got up and changed into slippers.
    11_30_20_8_21_21_AM.png

    Ageha wanted to talk to little Miki.
    I was going to remove the Ito's in order to turn their house into a spa.
    I can't bring myself to remove them. I will just give up one of my community lots.
    11_30_20_8_23_02_AM.png

    I like this area.
    11_30_20_8_25_55_AM.png

    [Updated]
    Added the fifth sim.
    11_30_20_2_34_15_PM.png

    Later, I added 5 males. I think these two households should meet.
    12_02_20_7_24_35_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    Better be polite since they've invited themselves over.
    12_02_20_7_25_58_PM.png?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    Both groups have their clubs and they have the Onsen and the lounge set as club hangouts.

    I think Kotori is going to be my favorite out of the group.

    The guys are the Jazz Men. The girls are the Komorebi 5.
    They all have club activities to be friendly, joke, drink, and sing. However, the Jazz Men have and extra activity:
    To romance the Komorebi 5.

    I am still alive. :)

    For the past year and some months, I have had a nice digital drawing tablet sitting near my computer in its never-opened packaging.
    Now I am gearing up to actually use it. I have been inspired to get back to designing things, and perhaps make side-money from it.

    I'm really excited about getting started and The Sims seems to have lost its magic spell over me.
    Right now I am in research mode learning all about the graphics software I have bought and all the things I need to know to sell my designs.
    I feel like I am late to the party because a lot of people are doing this now. But this is something I have always enjoyed doing and now the tools and opportunities are huge compared to years ago (heck, decades).

    Maybe by the time I get this underway and have created my own brand of digital products TS4 will be complete and I can finally Mod and play it in peace as TS5 gets started.

    That's really great for you CK. We will miss you but real life takes precedent over games any day. Good Luck in your endeavors and check in once in awhile to say Hi! :)
