  • (Quote) Thank you for the tip. My builds are usually quite small so I have to choose odd angles for the pics and being able to see more of the picture with all the detail helps enormously.
  • This time I have concentrated on finishing the Library and working on the interior of the antique shop. As a reminder the antique shop (Image) (Image) The upper floor. I decided not to use paneling for the upper floor. I wanted the space t…
  • It has been a while since I last posted. Anyway I fancied a change from Throxton and have been busy decorating the interior of the library. Just as a reminder. (Image) (Image) (Image) Apologies for the quality of the pics but I am not g…
  • (Quote) It sounds like your sims spent all their time nappy changing and feeding. You would have thought it would have been enough to put them off having more children :)
  • I have told this story before but it is worth repeating because it adds to my belief the little toerags have a life of their own once I have shut down the game and gone to bed. Very a la Toystory. Once upon a time I had two sims who were very love…
  • An update before Christmas then I must concentrate on RL things to be ready for the season. (Image) This is a simplified copy of Devizes Museum. I first visited it when on a school trip at the age of 8. What makes it different from many museum …
  • I'm sorry to hear you are having problems. I have never tried to import an EA world into CAW, I have seen various youtube videos. However before you go look for them, may I suggest you post this query in the Game Tools Section, subsection CAW. So…
  • (Quote) Thanks for posting this. This is the message I get when I try to access the forum via my Chrome browser.
  • I think a lot depends on what you want from your game. While both are very attractive places for your sim to reside there is probably more to do and see in Aurora Skies. Hidden Springs on the other hand is a fantastic place for anyone who enjoys b…
  • A little story to amuse while you recover from your Thanksgiving feast. I don't know how it is in America but in the UK we are very fond of giving out nicknames. So for example if you are from the city of Liverpool you are known as a Scouser, Geor…
  • This week I have been working on some starter homes which will lead up to one of the biggest builds in the world. I am not ready to share yet and would rather leave it until the bigger build is completed. The other build I have been working on is …
  • Hello @chojrak I had to chuckle when I read your comments. Taking your last point first let me explain. I am not overly worried how long Fenbury and Throxton take me. Building worlds is my hobby and as I am both retired and disabled I have plenty…
  • This is a bit picture heavy. I wanted to finish off the external building work for the square around the pond. The real pond is surrounded by roads and a mixture of residential and commercial properties. There are also plenty of trees. I have ta…
  • (Image) (Image) I am gradually getting back into working in CAW. Some days are better than others and we still have one cat who needs our help. Anyway one of the areas I have been wanting to work on for a while is the row of canal houses. …
  • Hello @Caelem thank you for your kind comments. I am incredibly lucky to have so many great buildings on my doorstep for inspiration.
  • Some of you may remember the rather fanciful memorial garden I created for Fenbury. (Image) Today in the UK is Remembrance Sunday and tomorrow, 11th November, is Remembrance Day. It is also Veterans Day in the US. Today all over the UK people w…
  • I have been thinking about TS5 and what I want from it for a very long time indeed. I have decided that when it comes to the sims and indeed to the general aesthetic I want as much realism as possible. The idea of puppets in badly fitting clothes …
  • Awesome work <3 Great cityscapes and your theatre makes me want to go see the real thing for myself.
  • Hello @Rflong7 thank you for your kind comments. I have stopped work on my CAW projects for now. One of my little cats was run over and killed on Monday. We are absolutely devastated and heartbroken. His brother is inconsolable.
  • I have gone back to building in the pond area. Devizes pond has a rather special story attached to it and once I have finished the area I will have something to show you to go with the story. Anyway I have been building some Victorian town houses.…
  • Hello :) It sounds like you have a real pair of lovebirds and that you will need to find other sims to be your naughty, cheating charmers :D What a good excuse for making some new sims.
  • That was a clever idea to juxtapose the ancient columns with the modern sculpture :)
  • Hello @chojrak as you can see I have been playing with some of the colours in the brickwork. I do not want to change the size of the brick because Elizabethan bricks were small. They were also irregular in size but I think that is beyond the progr…
  • I would have said the Greenhouse as it offers protection for your plants from the elements or any stray, plant loving zombies who might pop up. However in terms of harvestables the Bohemian Garden offers a great new selection and is particularly va…
  • This is a special build in as much as it is my interpretation of a family home near Devizes. It is currently occupied by one of my husband's aunts and after her there will be no more of us living there as the family do not own the property. The la…
  • I belong to a generation that really doesn't mark Halloween. It is very much an American event which has been semi adopted in the UK. When I was more of an age to enjoy Halloween the focus was on Guy Fawkes's Night which is celebrated on 5th Novem…
  • Lovely house designs which work so well with the landscaping <3
  • Late to the party as usual. I expect people have already said this but the store team was disbanded a long time ago and I doubt any of the newer developers could produce such detailed, colourful items anyway. Their focus is naturally on TS4. I wo…
  • (Quote) Thank you for your kind comment :) I have tried to stay with the native species for the UK. There are some exotics like palm trees which do grow in the South of England. I would have liked beech and copper beech trees in the meta data bu…
  • One of the best known pubs along the Kennet and Avon Canal, as far as my family is concerned, is the The Barge Inn at Seend. This village is just outside Devizes and it is the birthplace of several generations of my husband's family. Not that the …
