    So, I was able to get the custom blueprint maker working again. This tool was created by velocitygrass over at ModTheSims. The blueprint feature is included in the game as created by EA, but is unknown to most players. It allows the user to "place" a blueprint of a complete room on their lot, including everything; walls, doors, windows, wall coverings, floors, furniture and decorations. The tool created by velocitygrass allows a user to clone their own rooms and include them in the catalog, as well as share them with other users.

    I was playing a game with a nicely established property including a fishing hole and functioning barn. The house had become too small and so I built the 50s style ranch that became my most recent project.

    Here's the thing. Once I had built it, I decided to make it a project and built it again on an empty lot for the purpose of this thread. After spending all the time to furnish and decorate it I went back to my active game and realized that I had a fairly Spartan home. But, with the exact footprint of the furnished home.

    So I used the BP tool to clone each room and place them over the existing rooms on the active house. Presto, instant makeover! A couple adjustments for doors and windows that had been moved in the final build and I was ready to go.

    Which brings me to an advantage of using the BP tool with my custom builds. If anyone ever wants to place one of my buildings on a lot they are already playing, just let me know and I will create blueprints for the entire building. It's actually a fairly simple process, and such a powerful tool.

    If anyone is interested, I will create a short tutorial on using the blueprint tool. The game comes with quite a selection of BPs, including pools and resort structures. Just let me know.

    I just wanted to put it out there.

    I really love your builds! I've been looking through your exchange profile for a while! I have a quick question and I'm sorry I didn't check through for answers, but how do you feel about your builds being used in stories?

    @EiraRose Thank you for your compliments. I'd be thrilled to see my work used in someone else's form of creation. Just give me a mention and, of course, let me know where I can see it. :D

    I have decided to gather a list of my builds in one post. I wasn't able to do this in the past because I didn't know how to link to a specific post, only a page. I have placed the catalog as a spoiler in the very first post of this thread.

    The intention of this is to make it easier for old and new fans to find a build they want to download without poring through pages and pages of chatting.

    I intend to keep it updated as I post new builds. (There must be new builds. What is that old line? "Create or die." Actually, I think it is "publish or perish," but same concept.) The only thing that seems to be missing is my Cute Street project. I need to comb through the thread again and see if I can find it.

    Okay, having discovered (and used) the "search in thread" feature, it appears that the Cute Street build was deleted due to the dreaded Aruzzo cabinet affair. I will dig out the file, make sure that it is scrubbed clean, and create a new post.

    As a reminder, the Cute Street project is my childhood home, which I currently live in (again, not still.)

    Yeah, I learned this last week from someone while trying to organize another thread I'm active in. Thanks though.

    If you go to Page 1, you'll see I did a LOT of clicking tonight to get the catalog built!

    It is great that you have a list of all your creations that are in the thread, linked to one post :) It will be helpful for simmers who visit your thread, to find your creations.
