Hi peoples!

Since ROM releases in a few days, I'm really curious to see what builds (houses, apartments, rooms, etc.) my fellow simmers have been prepping. Please feel free to share them here! I'm still working on mine but once I'm happy with it I'll share my pics too.

Happy simming!!

    I made a restaurant that specializes in serving the occult. This is an older version of it, though. The one in-game has improved landscaping, better roof design, a remodeled and resized dining area, and a different veranda. It might have its own patio area for outdoor dining one day, not sure yet.

    I also plan on building a magic school in Windenburg, an orphanage in Glimmerbrook, and a potion shop in Brindleton Bay.

    I've been building and rebuilding my Sorcerer's Tower for a couple of years now.
    10ab1a4ed533a705e92e930939729c92.png

    Still a work in progress. but this is sort of how I envisioned it. the tower has always been the focal point for the build since the top floor(s) of the tower are where my sims Kaegan and Daerick Practice magic. The "Large Cottege" Part of the house, is inspired by my Elder Scroll's Online Character's Home, The Gardner House. Where the Living room, dining room and Kaegan's Bedroom is, and on the other side of the tower is Daerick's bedroom and the kitchen.

    So while I build Daerick and Kaegan are currently staying with their royal friends Castle.

    (The Front of the castle isn't built yet either (Can't decide what I want) So I'm going to show the back of the castle... very far away.

    d9364ce1f788388b14c18335bbc6a795.png

    Where the tower is (The East Wing) is Kaegan and Daerick's and the Mage's of Briarheart Hangout area is in the castle (The royal family had a Library built for them to practice and do research. The Knights of Briarheart Have the Feast Hall and War Room in the West Wing (Not built yet).
    and the Royal Family Has the South Wing over the foyer entrance, but I can't decide what I want the front of the castle to look like either. and in the north wing (The large part of the build 3 floors combined into one room) is the throne room.
    Sigh, I wish we could build instead of 4 1/2 floors above ground, we could build 5 1/2- 7 1/2 floors above ground o:)
    I'd probably have finished by now if we could.

    This is the library under the tower room, Freshly built and furnished.

    I'm thinking to put the cauldron in that open space where the blue carpet is. I was going to put a Portrait in the frame over the fireplace of the Mage's Club Leader, or a portrait of the King, Maybe a Mirror... But Now I think I'll replace it with shelves to store potions. Or where those two middle book shelves are I might create a potions case...
    Pending on how the stained glass looks with my builds I might swap out some out. but Get together, romantic garden and Vampires, and CC are heavily influencing my builds as of now.

    I've been adding basements to some of my favorite houses that don't already have them, to have room for my spellcasters' sanctums. I've also got a template save that has Strangerville as a location for most of the community venues, so I took the three houses on the bluff and moved them to Newcrest; I think they make great spellcaster houses (I may end up moving one of them to Glimmerbrook).

    I've currently got about three different storylines I want to play with, so I think I'll be using this pack more than others.

    I love it too. I was hoping Realm of Magic would Bring in more of a Medieval Renaissance-Victorian era Outfits.
    I wish it didn't alter the bust tho... You can't wear necklaces which stinks because I know the Outfit would look good with a jewelry set I found.

    I won't post pictures until it is done; but created something like a Gothic Cathedral which I want to add stained glass windows (those windows is what gave me the idea). One area will be where sims can hold weddings (I just had it set as a nightclub for now); but there will be a secret door that only a club of sims I make can enter and inside the secret room I want to see if I can place the portal and other items for spellcasters. These spellcasters would start out as a group of friends who got curious when they accidentally stumbled upon the secret portal and discovered the other realm.

    If it turns out good, I might upload it in the gallery; but my work isn't all that amazing.

    I’ve been away from my laptop and haven’t played for months but I already have some builds on the Windenberg Island. I’m making a school for magic and using the club system as classes (botany, potions, necromancy, etc.) and having housing and classrooms around the island. I already have two households of teen students and a household of teachers made! I’ve been ready for this for a while! :D
  • deaallendeaallen Posts: 16 Member
    I would but I still haven't reached the minimum post count to be able to post pictures yet :( I'm a long time lurker but I don't often post!

    I have however been updating my little witches country cottage and also converting my vampire lord tower to a more evil sorcerer theme

    Since we're going to get customizable stairs in the update, I may change the stairs in my Glimmerbrook Estate build. It's on the gallery, but I will post an updated version of it soon.

    Yeah Might do a winding stair case for my sorcerer's tower. I forget I might need to rewatch the stream we can't bend stairs to go diagonally yet, right?

    But this might help with my Castle floor plans!

    I built a witches pub that also has a rustic barn with it for use as a wedding venue. I figured the Glimmerbrook bar would need a replacement.

    Also built the outside of a forest cottage for my ROM sim, but I'm waiting for the new build and buy to finish it.

    Legend says that the old lady that used to live here was a witch. Others says she was just a crabby old lady. One day she just up and disappeared but the odd thing is her flowers and bushes are tended by someone. But who? Ellie intends to find out. She is saving every dime she gets to buy the old place and fix it up.

    Also working on an alchemist house, but I am waiting for the new build/buy mode stuff from the pack to finish it. I want to use the stained glass windows to build a greenhouse.
  • fullspiralfullspiral Posts: 14,212 Member
    Just spent an hour or so playing around.....I haven't decorated the inside yet. I think I'll wait for the new BB for that. And I may change the windows and doors too. I made Higganbotham House for Vivica.

    I use a lot of cc decor in that build by soloriya.tumblr.com Im in the process of redoing it with a basement and no cc for RoM. It's on the gallery under the name Gatekeeper's Cottage and you would need CC enabled checked to see that one.
