edited September 11 in The Sims 4 Lots
This is an event usually hosted by @cmbaker16 but since she’s unavailable at this time, I have been given permission to host in her place.

This event is similar to the Sims 3 homemade gift exchanges in that each participant is assigned a Secret Buddy to make in-game gifts for.

These gifts are CC Free and follow the wishes found in the Buddy Letter.

Specific questions regarding Buddy gifts need to be sent to me via pm. General questions can be posted in this thread.

RULES:
1. Please don’t sign up if you can’t follow through
2. Make note of the dates listed in the 2nd post
3. Join by using the Buddy Letter found in the 3rd post
4. You can make as many gifts as you want
5. Each Buddy should gift & be gifted. If unable to gift the person you’re assigned, please let me know ASAP (via pm) so arrangements can be made
6. If your gift presentation has lots of pictures, feel free to make a gifting thread for your Buddy. Post a message in the main thread each time a gift is added!
7. Be polite and supportive of each other, leaving all drama llamas outside visiting the cows and chickens
8. Have FUN!!

    This is to let me know that you’ve received your Buddy Name. If you didn’t get it, please let me know ASAP!

    I love using this particular item/object (mention any skill items you love to use or perhaps something you haven’t used before & would like to try): for skill items the wood working bench and the easel are essential but try to fit as many skill items as you can

    I enjoy this style of build most: my favorite style is modern but i build so many modern builds in the sims 4 and i also really like Victorian but am bad at building them in sims 4 so if you are experienced in building Victorians in sims 4 i would prefer that as i'm not good at building them myself but a modern build would be ok to

    also addy i would like to ask if tool mod is ok to use? since you don't need the mod to download the lot everything stays intact and it doesn't mark your build as cc.

  • ADWilsonADWilson Posts: 6,653 Member
    Hooray! Thanks for joining @seaben :)

    I don't use tool but from my limited knowledge, it should be fine because it isn't considered cc. As with moo ... as long as the build is thoroughly tested so there aren't routing/placement/other issues then feel free to use. I would suggest mentioning if either were used so your Buddy is aware.

    Buddy Letter
    This is to provide your Buddy with a bit of information about your game-play style.

    Username/Gallery Name: MsPrissySim -- Just call me Prissy

    I have the following packs: every one

    I prefer to play in these Neighborhoods: Since I mostly play game challenges (i.e. Rags to Riches, The Drifter Challenge), I mostly play in Willow Creek & Oasis Springs

    Some of my favorite colors are: BLUE. I also like - in a pastel --> Orange, Lavender and sometimes pink

    I dislike these colors: Yellow & Brown

    I love using this particular item/object (mention any skill items you love to use or perhaps something you haven’t used before & would like to try): I mostly use cc when I furnish stuff. If I had to choose, it would be the Country Kitchen kit stuff

    I enjoy this style of build most: Craftsman, Cottage, Victorian... think traditional, but with these styles

    I prefer playing on this lot size (please remember to mention if you want residential or commercial): Again... BECAUSE I play game challenges, I have to play on VARIOUS size lots. I hate the 64 by 64. Those are too big. I would stay with the small lots (20 by 15) and go NO bigger than the 40 by 30)

    I do/don’t want Berry Sims: NO

    I do/don’t want Supernatural Sims: NO

    Would you like your Sims to have skill points? If so, which skills? (If there are skills you don’t want, please mention them): NO SKILL POINTS ... actually, I would prefer NOT to get any sim at all. (sorry) I usually just play with what I already have in my library.

    Do you like playing with families? Or do you prefer to play with a single Sim or couple and grow the family yourself? SINGLE -- but again... would prefer NOT to get any sims

    Other (please list anything that wasn’t covered above):

    My request/wish list is pretty narrow. Sorry. I prefer to create my own sims, while using OTHER PEOPLE'S builds. (if i don't build something myself) IF you get me as your Buddy... JUST HAVE FUN. LOOK at floor plans online, and then see if you can re-create what you found. OR... think of something that's unique from your own head/heart. As long as it's playable (no routing issues), my sim will love it.

    Good question @Clousinators !
    No, they don't need to be spooky-themed unless your Buddy wants it that way.
    This name was used because 1) it's what the original host came up with and 2) is based on the gifting dates.
    Hope this clears up things :)
