    Hi @KatyFernlily

    Just in case some players may prefer to look at some pics of your makeover and build remakes on this forum I am going to post your pics and updates on here as I am sure you will be okay with that. I will also copy it over to the world build thread as well :)

    This was the first update

    @KatyFernlily Your world is beautiful. I hope you will post a link when it is completed here. I have a hard time following tumblr.

    Hi,

    I just want players to be aware that the original world was made in 2011 by KayPapagei, called Rovington Islands. This creator was also known as Kay/Lucky25 in later years and @KatyFernlily has received full permission from this creator to remake her world and update it to later packs. I think KatyFernlily she is doing a fab job and I cannot wait to play in the world when it is done. I am also in love with all those lovely build remakes which also look so right in the world itself :)

    Hi @KatyFernlily

    Thanks for the updated pics of Rovington world with your new and completely awesome renovated builds which look so fabulous in this world :) (as always-) I usually spend days looking for and adding other creator lots as I am so bad at building but I can see in this world I won't have to do that as your builds suit the world perfectly :)

    Hi @KatyFernlily

    Thanks for letting me know :)

    remake of pool by KayPapagei @KatyFernlily wrote on Tumblr "

    It’s so very cool and looks like it has a water slide. I tested it and sims can walk up the stairs and enter the “slide” which is part of the pool - very neat! I can’t imagine the work that went into making that water slide!

    Love the pics and that pool slide is totally the best thing I've seen yet. I can't wait to try it out.

    There is a link to the original Rovington Islands world here - https://katyfernlily.tumblr.com/post/645476967997652992/rovington-island-makeover
    The pool is one of the lots in this world. It's not really a slide, it just looks like one. Sims can go up the stairs and get in the "slide". It's really cool.

    GraceyManor is correct. It is not finished. I have no estimate on when it will be complete but I continue to work on it. It's a fairly massive undertaking and you can see some before and after pictures on MTS - https://modthesims.info/showthread.php?t=653711 - and get an idea of the scope of this makeover. Thanks for your interest in the project!
  • KevinL5275KevinL5275 Posts: 2,214 Member
    Ooooooh! Ok, I jumped the gun. :) I was seeing all the new pictures and I thought that meant it was completed. Please, carry on and good luck with it. I'm excited to see the end result.

    Thanks for letting us know about the new lot updates you have made. My map view build matching is in OCD heaven as they all blend in so well and look so perfect in this world :)

    Looking good, I like what you've done with the roads, I wasn't keen on the original ones.
    Did you repaint the mountainous terrain? It was very dark in the original but doesn't seem so in this version, I like that too.

    You are welcome as always :)

    She has posted/updated a further build with a download link that so I am adding the details here along with the download link. I have already snagged the build as I love bungalow/one storey style builds :)

    I created this Mid Century Modern house for Rovington Island Makeover and thought I’d just go ahead and share it. It’s on a 40x20 lot and is minimally furnished on the inside. It has three bedrooms and 2 baths. There is a small basement as well. There is room in the yard for a swimming pool, if you so desire. Priced under $30,000. It has no cc but I used all expansions in creating it. Enjoy!

    Thanks for the comment, Pary! No, I didn't repaint the mountains. I'm not sure why they look so dark in the original although I've noticed some screenshots are darker when you just hit "print screen" instead of using the screenshot in game. I wish they were just a bit darker or had more variety in texture but that change would be a huge undertaking and I don't want to veer too far from the original design. Mayhaps the game replaced the original darker color with my weaker one (as in I don't have that texture??)
