  • I don’t mind Arts and Crafts... but I really hate that we picked knitting of all things. Sounded the most CAS heavy out of the options. I’m only ever in build mode. Happy Haunts was the only gameplay that may have tempted me to actually play the game, but I would’ve been totally happy if we could get stained glass. Alas,…
  • One?! That just became even harder. I can’t decide between 32 and 45... so take the middle and 64 lmao! But seriously those slippers look adorable.
  • This is why I absolutely didn’t want this pack... there’s nothing that’s real original compared to other packs. Those art styles look suspiciously similar to Parenthood and Laundry Days to me. The only thing remotely original is DIY, but even then I’m not exited at all. :/ Conbination of University and Pets anyone? I could…
  • Shame. I don’t actually play the game much less elders, no idea why I would ever want to either. I just stick to the build mode so the stained glass had my vote, it sounded really pretty. Alongside a lot of the stuff from Happy Haunts, pretty much only those had anything interesting to me for gameplay. Well I’ll still buy…
  • Is there a mod that can set lighting to a specific hour in build mode?
  • Oof. Just saw this. I haven't logged on here for ages... mainly cause I'm still struggling on a build that's been sitting around with no progress since last year. Do tag me again next time lmao!
  • @jeromesimsword I think I know what you mean, spacious as in feels large and with plenty of room inside, but outside doesn't look like a gigantic mansion or castle that no one would realistically own?
  • @Nore free items. Never thought of using those to cut cost. xD
  • @PeterTheSims3 I wouldn’t call it fluid honestly. It’s quite jerky and hard to control, keyboard controls can’t move in small steps. Contrary... build mode is FLUID. It’s mouse after all. Buuut you can’t control the camera pitch as much as tab mode. Give and take. Oh right, I forgot completely. There’s this mod that allows…
  • Free ftw! I didn't think of that. xD
  • Just a fyi, credit is automatically given by the game when you edit & reupload someone else's creation. Well, other than rooms. You'll see an "Original By" when you save the lot. Generally there shouldn't be a problem uploading your version, it's part of the game's function to do so, especially when the original is…
  • I can't believe how much I'm struggling with this. orz Any suggestions for colours anyone?
  • I hear you. But I still love building, it’s still the only reason I play the game. In a sense, all the lack of matching items and other functions provides a challenge that I find can bring some interesting results when looking for a workaround. It puts an upper limit so I don’t go grilling myself on and on for what maybe…
  • I usually just turn testing cheats on and send them teleporting to the corner of the world... =3=;; A good mod to have for this is MC Command Center. It let's you set the maximum sims on a lot, not household but lot. Minimum is 5. So I use a 5+ sims household, that way there won't be random ppl walking by. Also, turn off…
  • @Nore ahhh! I get it now! So you're trying to let the light into the second story room out back and not the lower floor! That's even easier, you'll just need to add another window lol. You see, there's two walls on either side of a roof. You can think of a roof as a room for now, it's not exactly the same but it's the same…
  • Don’t worry... I almost never do either. You have two options: Ignore the stairs and continue with furnishing the house. Then fit the stairs into the layout instead of other way round. Or. Pick a random spot. Doesn’t matter where. Just place it and work around it. Same logic as picking a word randomly off a newspaper. xD;;…
  • @Nore well you could always position the camera before entering tab mode, and then only enter tab mode to adjust the camera height and angle. That's what I do sometimes when the keyboard refuses to cooperate lol.
  • @Nore well there is a workaround for that actually. I haven't tested this out on columns specifically, but it does work of windows and lights and a few other things. It may or may not work on columns you'll have to check. You can actually sink an item below ground utilizing foundations and the room system in TS4.…
  • @Nore I can’t get on the game atm, but I do have an example in my last build and a few others if you wanna reference that. Or I’ll take some screenie in the morning, almost 3am here. xD;; Edit: Gmorning, back with screenies! So you build a room with no walls up top where you want the ceiling to be solid first. Basically…
  • @Nore ah yes, that should be as simple as making a room where the roof is, and deleting the walls and floor. c: It may or may not actually let in light downstairs though, not entirely sure on that.
  • Clarify what you mean by “work”? You mean, attics? The thing with attics is that below a certain height it’s inaccessible to sims. I do believe it’s slightly lower than wall height tho, you’ll have to check on that. These don’t actually need walls to work. You can actually walk right into a roof if there’s a door, or a…
  • o.O What do you mean it doesn't work? There's a few tricks you can achieve this I suppose, but the 9 key is by far the easiest, what's the problem you're encountering?
  • Honestly, I dread it every time I have to go take screenshots lmao. Never turns out right. Here’s the trick for build mode screenies tho, take it WHILE it’s jumping up and down. To get just the right height. It’ll take a few tries, but it’s much less stressful than having to move a sim in for tab mode imo. With that said,…
  • We need a mod here. What's up with that super suspicious random ad?! :neutral: Yup, exactly what @Amuitza said. For Cats and Dogs EP, it's not really the style, it's the individual items that sell the pack. It's kinda like buying a second base game imo lol. Stairs tho... Spiral stairs, curved stairs, diagonal stairs,…
  • @oXseashellXo I do believe it still works, I’ll double check on that and get back to you.
  • I’ve tried building starters before... they get out of hand real quick. orz Not even on a 20 by 15 lot is small enough, seriously. Before you know it you’re well onwards towards 40k, with it still looking pretty crap... On another note, this seems fun, I shall be lurking around until time is right! owo xD
  • @oXseashellXo pretty sure unless I'm interpreting this wrong he already has Get Together and City living. xD;; Plus Toddler, Romantic Garden, Perfect Patio. Which I think covers some basics that you need from first packs.
  • @Nore sorry I don’t know my styles too well lmao. I kinda just pick whatever I think looks best without thinking much on what style it is... I think it really is just a matter that the pack happens to fill in a lot of things that we didn’t have enough choices of. Three tile windows and doors, and the new trees and bushes,…
