edited October 26 in The Sims 4 Lots
Hi! :D For anyone returning Welcome Back :D

For those of you who are new this is an event that I use to participate in during my sims 3 days and I decided to bring it to the sims 4. It's Basically a secret Santa, I’ll give you a name (only you and I should know it) and you shouldn’t tell anyone else your name.

This is for Sims 4 only and is CC free (well should be since CC doesn’t transfer in sims 4)

We will use the pm system to communicate when it concerns questions about your buddy gifts. However, you can post some sneak peeks if you’d like or if you’re having a major issue that you need help finding a solution to you can ask for help on the main thread.

Rules:
1. Please don’t sign up if you can’t follow through
2. You can make as many gifts as you want
3. When gifting starts please make a separate thread if you have a lot of photos and post in main thread to let host know when you add a gift (makes it easier to organize the gift section).
4. Everyone should get a gift so please let me know ASAP if anything comes up that may keep you from working on this so arrangements can be made so we can make sure your buddy gets something.
Ex of this would be…you sign up and halfway through a major life event happens (you don’t have to give details just say something important in IRL came up) totally unexpected. So I’ll thank you for the heads up and figure something out so your buddy gets something. (If you have something started but not finished we could also work with that)
5. Have Fun!

    Buddy Letter:

    Username/Gallery Name:
    illusie

    I have the following Packs:
    almost all, except Island Living, Realm of Magic and Moschino stuff pack

    I prefer to play in these Neighborhoods:
    I love all worlds, so if you want to build something feel free to create something for the town you love most.

    Some of my favorite colors are:
    blue, green, bright colours, pastel colours

    I dislike these colors:
    dark colours, pink and orange (can be used as long as it is not the main colour)

    I love to use this particular item/object:
    since the release of seasons I like the umbrella rack :smiley: but I can always put it in myself :wink:

    I enjoy this style of build most:
    - I like both Community lots and residential lots
    - I love all styles

    I prefer playing on this size lot:
    no preferences

    I do/don’t want Berry sims :
    I don't want Berry sims, I prefer realistic sims

    I would/wouldn’t like Sepernaturals:
    I say no to aliens and vampires (also to mermaids and witches since I don't own those games)

    Would you like your sims to have a few skill points? If so, which skills?
    I have no preferences, it's up to you.

    Do you like playing with families? Or prefer to play with a single sim or couple and grow the family yourself?
    I love both single sims and families. I also love pets for my sims.

    Other:
    Surprise me! I'll love anything you create for me <3

    I was thinking about things I'd like for my game (in no particular order):
    - families / single sims
    - pets
    - houses (for families, friends or single sims)
    - (fancy) restaurant
    - playground for kids and toddlers
    - park for pets
    - community garden
    - wedding venue
    - community lots where my sims can go on dates
    - Magnolia Promenade is standing empty at the moment in my game. If you like making community lots, maybe you can help me fill it? Maybe a restaurant, spa, store, bowling alley or roller skater venue or something else that is fun.

    I have the following Packs:
    City Living, Cats and Dogs, Seasons, Get Famous, Island Living, Vampires, Bowling Night Stuff, and Laundry Day Stuff.

    I prefer to play in these Neighborhoods:
    San Myshuno, Oasis Springs, Brindleton Bay

    Some of my favorite colors are:
    Blue, yellow, green, darker shades of purple. Black and white is the best color scheme though if you ask me!

    I dislike these colors:
    brown, orange, and all light shades of purple.

    I love to use this particular item/object (this is where you could mention any skill items you love to use or ones you’ve not gotten around to use because you’ve nowhere to put them):
    I don't really build much, but I would love some items from City Living that are crazy and fun.

    I enjoy this style of build most:
    Modern, but I also really love traditional homes.

    I prefer playing on this size lot (this is where you can mention if you like homes on this size lot but like commercial lots on this size):
    Homes on 30x30 and lower, I don't care for community lots.

    I do/don’t want Berry sims (granted sims 4 only has Green, blue, and red but this is where you can mention if you want a sim with red skin or not):
    No, I'll save that for the day I have Get to Work.

    I would/wouldn’t like Aliens or Vampires:
    No aliens, but Vampires and Mermaids are fine.

    Would you like your sims to have a few skill points? If so, which skills?
    No skill points- I prefer to do things myself.

    Do you like playing with families? Or prefer to play with a single sim or couple and grow the family yourself?
    Single sims then grow the family myself.

    Other(Here describe anything you’d really like that wasn’t covered above):
    Please, if you know how to build, do that. I love making sims almost more than I love playing the actual game, but I just cannot build a house!

  • cmbaker16cmbaker16 Posts: 9,069 Member

    I have the following Packs:
    EDIT: All except my first pet stuff. (I have ROM also) <3<3<3

    I prefer to play in these Neighborhoods:
    I have actually played so little that I don't have a favorite... but I love building in Newcrest and Brindleton Bay.

    Some of my favorite colors are:
    Blue, purple, strong red and dark wood but you can use any color fit for the gift.

    I dislike these colors:
    None.

    I love to use this particular item/object:
    Romantic Garden stuff pack items <3

    I enjoy this style of build most:
    Victorian, Tudor and Cottage either residential or commercial: doesn't matter.

    I prefer playing on this size lot:
    No preferences.

    I do/don’t want Berry sims:
    Doesn't matter as long as they aren't goofy/silly/manga/cartoon sims.

    I would/wouldn’t like Aliens or Vampires:
    EDIT: I'm fine with all occult sims (alien/vampire/mermaid AND witches/sorcerers)

    Would you like your sims to have a few skill points? If so, which skills?
    Rather not.

    Do you like playing with families? Or prefer to play with a single sim or couple and grow the family yourself?
    Any is fine as are realistic pets (meaning that I don't want the pet to be a painting - while such pets are skillfully done and beautiful, I'd much rather have a normal looking pet).

    Other:
    Note to @cmbaker16: I can do small lot builds from 15x15 to a max of 20x30/30x20 due health. I can make households but would prefer not to make pets in them.

    I have the following Packs: All of them

    I prefer to play in these Neighborhoods: All of them but I love the graphics in the Island Living World.

    Some of my favorite colors are: Purples and Blues

    I dislike these colors: Not a big fan of Orange but I don't really hate any color

    I love to use this particular item/object (this is where you could mention any skill items you love to use or ones you’ve not gotten around to use because you’ve no where to put them): I love the creative ones like painting, writing stores and such but I would love to spend more time trying out gardening.

    I enjoy this style of build most: I am more of a traditional type lover - for example I love old victorians and big farm houses and not too much into the more modern day styles like black and white.

    I prefer playing on this size lot (this is where you can mention if you like homes on this size lot but like commercial lots on this size): Any size is good for me.

    I do/don’t want Berry sims (granted sims 4 only has Green, blue, and red but this is where you can mention if you want a sim with red skin or not): I normally make myself Sims on the more normal side but maybe with a wild color hair .... but I don't mind different colors sims. Matter of fact it might even be a interesting change. So make whatever you will have the most fun doing.

    I would/wouldn’t like Aliens or Vampires: I have never actually played with the Aliens and only dabbled in Vampires but again I am out if you want to make me something like this. In Sims 3 I was a huge occult lover and I still am!

    Would you like your sims to have a few skill points? If so, which skills? Always nice when they know how to cook enough to keep from burning down the house. But, again play what you like I will enjoy them either way.

    Do you like playing with families? Or prefer to play with a single sim or couple and grow the family yourself? I often start with one or two Sims and grow the family. Although it might be interesting to try to start with a full family already again whatever works best for you.

    Other(Here describe anything you’d really like that wasn’t covered above): I am a huge role-player/story teller so I love Sims that have some kind of Bio or Back Story I can play off of. I am not the best as building and I would love a nice "witchy style house" for playing in Realms of Magic which I just got! Regardless what you choice to make have fun and enjoy yourself I don't want you to make me something because you feel you have to and it feels more like a job to you because you are not feeling the Sim or build.
