My Stardew Valley project

edited May 2019 in The Sims 4 Lots
I have been playing Stardew Valley the past few months, and I'm absolutely loving it! Started playing it a couple years back, and just passed 600 hours on it. Not anywhere near my TS4 hours, though :D So, I decided to recreate SDV in TS4. I have made most of the townies and houses. All houses are made as residential, because I really can't be bothered with retail. And its not possible to have sims live on retail lots, anyway. I am missing a few NPC's and buildings. I'm working on it :)

This is MY simmified version of SDV and Pelican town. I'm sure many has done the same, and more than likely a lot better. Nothing is absolutely accurate, since that would mean sims could not live there (I mean, no SDV home has a bathroom that we can see, it would be a massive crisis!) I've tried to make everything as accurate as I could, though. The lack of color and pattern choices did limit the likeness of sims/townies and buildings. I'm thinking I would have been better off doing this in TS3, but oh well....

Everything's on the Gallery. Sims are tagged as modded because of default skin replacement (and body hair for the guys). There are a couple of houses that are tagged as modded too, but I don't understand that, as I haven't used build/buy CC in ANY house I've uploaded oO Maybe the sims cc will flag the house too...? I don't know...

Big wave to any SDV player o/

So, to present the residents first:


Then, the houses (external shot only):

Mayor's house


Carpenter's house

Elliott's shack

General store and clinic

Haley and Emily's house

Linus' "tent"

Leah's Cottage

Marnie's ranch

Wizard's Tower

Kent and Jodi's house

Stardrop Saloon

Pam's trailer

Mullner's house

Willy's house

Gunther's house

Sandy's Oasis

Adventurer's Guild

The Farm and its owner

    Hello :)
    The Stardew Valley sims and the builds are very nice! You would have spent many enjoyable hours in cas and build mode creating these very special creations, They look great! I don’t play Stardew Valley so do not know the characters or buildings, but each of your creations are very special to have in the Sims 4 game :)
  • KathykinsKathykins Posts: 1,046 Member
    Thank you so much, Rose :) Yes, I've had lots and lots of hours building and making those sims, its a ton of fun, for sure! I've put them all in an empty Willow Creek, its a lovely neighbourhood for the Stardew "theme". Would have loved to use Granite Falls, because of the forest, but there aren't enough lots there.

    Anyway, I've added Willy and Gunther, and their respective houses. Not many left now :)

    This is awesome! I personally love Stardew Valley, and I think it's incredible how you managed to capture the characters and buildings. Are you planning on making them available for download on the gallery? I suddenly feel the need to create a Stardew town in the Sims haha, but I highly doubt I could create something that looks as good as your creations!
  • KathykinsKathykins Posts: 1,046 Member
    Wow, thank you, Kitsumi! :) SDV is one of my favorite games, I've had breaks but I always come back to it :D

    I've just added Sandy, Mr. Qi and the Bouncer from Calico (made Qi an alien, because he's just mysterious and not quite like anyone else heh), and Marlon and Gil from the Adventurer's Guild. And of course their houses. Those are the last townies in SDV.

    They are all on the Gallery (I have the same ID as my forum name here), both sims and builds. If you decide to get any of it, remember to check the Custom content box. The sims have default skin replacement and I use body hair for the guys. They should all work fine if you don't have the same CC. No house should contain any CC, but a couple of them was tagged as modded, although I have no idea HOW. I didn't use any CC in them. Wish we had an easy way to check :#

    The houses are fairly simple, just boxes, really. I've also forgotten things here and there, like mailbox/trashcan for Gunther's house. Which I noticed after the house was uploaded, of course :p

    Thank you! haha not so much time on the houses themselves, but I lose interest when it comes to the outside and I'm not spending too much time on decoration and clutter inside either! :# I'm just terrible at it. The challenge with the sims is the lack of certain things, like Marlon's eyepatch, no purple hair colors and specific types of glasses. I could have gotten CC for it, probably, but managed to get by with what the game has to offer.

    Now, the real challenge is: dragging myself away from SDV long enough to actually play the simmified version of it :D

    My jaw is literally on the floor right now :O just popped in to the forum before bedtime, and saw your comment. I'm stunned! And thank you, Rose! :)

    @queenvortex808 Sam is such a sweet guy :) whenever he says its good to see me again, I go like "awwww!" lol my favorite spot is shared between Elliot and Alex :)

    @lillibattenberg ohhh I'd say....about a week. Actually checked just now, and the first screenies are done May 10. There are 38 sims (including Dusty!) and 19 houses, 20 if I count the Clinic/General store as 2 ;) I usually did the sim/s, then their house in one session. Then I had a break (or not lol) then the next sim/family.

    I'm still stunned, btw :#

    Congratulations on getting featured on Friday Highlights! I actually started playing Stardew Valley just over a week ago, so this is perfect timing! Perhaps I'll try recreating it in TS4! Which lots did you place each house on?
  • KathykinsKathykins Posts: 1,046 Member
    @Simtown15 I placed everything in Willow Creek. I have a park and a gym there also (standard Maxis lots, and there's one empty lot left. Haven't decided what to put there yet. I placed Sandy's Oasis in Oasis Springs. :)

    I love SDV and have played it through 3 times. You have done a great job in recreating the characters and the lots.

    @Kathykins Wow all your work is just amazing. I look forward to hearing from you about your sims adventures in Stardew Valley. Keep up the beautiful work <3
    Playtesting - not just tabletop games and card games any more. Really that should have been playtested in Beta and not [img]just with accounting and marketing but actual players.[/img]
  • KathykinsKathykins Posts: 1,046 Member
    @cat_mom Thank you! It is a lovely game, for sure :) I always find new details I haven't noticed before, and I'm on my 10th (?) save right now, with almost 700 hours played :o

    @summers Thanks a lot! and you're welcome! :D

    @drakharis Thank you! It was really fun to do, and I have a little bit more work ahead before the save is ready. It's an empty save made before Cats&Dogs. Brindleton Bay, Del Sol Valley and Strangerville have not been emptied of sims and houses yet. Need to get that done before playing.

    I'm also looking for another project like this :D And I have to decide HOW to play the SDV save. Only the farmer (like in SDV) or a rotational game with all the sims. Life is full of tough choices :#
