Current Household/Hood?

The original catch all. General game help, banter, things you should probably put in the correct forum, This is the place.

Current Household/Hood?

Post by igazor » February 2nd, 2019, 11:09 am

Sara_Darkees - Maybe I could have phrased that more clearly the first time. But that's odd. I wonder why Tumblr as a source for embedded image links is not showing up on your end when there isn't any kind of source block or otherwise you wouldn't see them through clicking on links either or have access to the Tumblr site. Perhaps Chain can shed some light on this when he gets a chance.

Well, here I don't see any pictures embedded in the message or links to them. Instead, "image" and it is not clickable. I have no problems with the source, otherwise why would I go there to watch updates. I tried using a different browser and the problem didn't go away :(

@Sara_Darkees I uploaded these pictures to a different source. Let me know if they show up for you.

ImageTrivial pursuit before school....he's been barefoot for quite a while and I only noticed now.

Image
Taking a nap before life on the farm begins...they have tons of crops.

Image
Upgrading the sprinkler to lighten the load. After they pay back their loan they will get a tractor hopefully. (Gotta remember to fix that roof as well.)

Image
The ultimate career mod works really well with my schools. I'm having a problem with the boys homework that I need to try and fix. I'll just pretend he's hiding it for now.

I'll post some type of collage picture of the world so far. Many of the buildings are coming into shape. I don't want to post a million pictures here.

Now I see everything. What a nice country house. The choice of textures seems strange to me, but perhaps it gives realism. There is no impression that all furniture was as if made to order. Or is it not ready yet? I don't know if it's only my disease, but I kill a lot of time on textures. I laughed about the loan, especially with so many money trees. Wait, though... In the penultimate screenshot - is it a house or a base that supplies food for the whole town? No kidding, I just thought there was an agronomist in your family.

@Sara_Darkees I plan for their farm to supply most of the food with some contributions from another farm. They actually needed a loan to be able to buy the grocery store. I haven't really spent much time decorating their house and didn't really pay attention to textures. I've been trying to finish all of the community lots in my world which is taking more time than I expected, but I want them all to look nice.

One of the theaters in my world the movie studio is on this lot as well.

In fact, I would like to see and have suggested a Pics from Your Game/What are You Working on Now? kind of sub-board here to actually encourage more of such discussions,
I was just discussing this with a friend of mine that with so much traffic here on this site, it shows that Sims 3 is still very much alive and I was hoping we could have a Creative Corner, so to speak. Where players using NRaas/Ani's mods could showcase builds, sims, stories, worlds, via links to their blog pages or the sites they host them on.

With so many sites focusing on Sims 4 now, I don't think Sims 3 players realize there are still a lot of us left!
In fact, without NRaas mods there probably wouldn't be because all of our towns and worlds would have died ages ago.

My current game is a Town Jump Project originated by JudeSims and I found it at Carl's Sims 3/4 site, where I also have a story I'm writing following my family through each town. Without Carl's site, this site and NRaas mods, neither the game or the story would have been possible.
I'm in town #8 with 10 more towns to go! https://www.carls-sims-4-guide.com/foru ... ic=30319.0

And I'd love to read other players stories and be able to ask questions on how they tweaked the mods they use to achieve what they have. The same goes for builds, lots, sims, worlds.
There are so many talented and creative people here it would be nice to have a group of them to chat with and bounce ideas off.

I'm doing a huge rotational gameplay thing in a city. The main stories I'm focusing on are an ivy league homeworld university, and a private university feeder high school. I use zerbu's mod, and all the nraas mods. I am hoping to be able to have all the students in the highschool living in one lot, and I'm gonna divide them up in households based on their friend groups using the apartment mod and just rotate through them. But that's just a small fraction of what I have planned for the city. I'm creating every last sim that will populate my city and deciding their careers, families, friends and life stories. I'm really excited to use the membership card items along with the caste filter to create private country clubs for my rich sims, and id/access cards for all my students and business workers. The level of micromanaging I need to make this save hyper realistic is only possible with a game mod folder of over 200 files (that's just scripting/game mods not even mentioning my massive cc collection)

Wow! That's an impressive amount of mods! I have like maybe 20.
Would love to see pics of your created Sims and builds. And read any stories if you plan on sharing them.
Good luck with such an extensive game and keep us posted!

I was hoping this topic would be a bit more active as I'd love to see some links for other players games, stories, and pics. I'm getting close to another town jump soon but I've got so many chapters written ahead, @ thirteen at last count, that I need something else to focus on in my down time between posting and writing.
I'm already following several Sims 3 stories at Carl's sims 3/4 site but I would love to have more to follow to get game ideas, check out other players NRaas settings, and just be able to bounce ideas off of. Happy simming all!

deedee_828, I'd probably brag about what I have in the game, too. In addition to the problems in the game I have buildings, sims with their stories and a few relatively funny cases. But almost everywhere I've been, many players write stories with incredible plot twists, build chic palaces-mazes and make out their creativity beautiful, with sequins, with animations... I've never been able to do it. I can't even sit down and figure out how to do it. Perhaps that is why some players play exclusively for themselves.
