I have never been the person to experiment with furniture and decor to create new pieces, but seeing what other people do, especially now we have the debug objects, has inspired me to try some things out myself. And I want to show you some ideas!
I am not a person who is into clutter that much, but I love giving shelves and book cases a personal touch by adding some miscellaneous and decor items. The move objects cheat and pressing 9 and 0 (I'm using a German keyboard, so I am sorry if the keys are different in other parts of the world and this is confusing you) to raise and lower objects mostly do the trick very well, but sometimes you just can't get past these floating or sunken objects on top of your fridge or on chairs.
I am telling you my personal tips and tricks about taking screenshots and presenting your work in Instagram, while having in mind that all of this is our hobby and should be fun.
I am not a pro, I am not a graphic designer like some other bigger Simstagrammers, I still use very basic tools because they work for me, and I would like to share them with you.
I am one of those simmers who doesn't own all packs. Since I do own a lot of packs though, I would like to share my thoughts on every one of them over the course of the next year. I will build a house with each of them individually, to showcase what items it has and how I personally use them. The natural thing to me, was to start with the basegame.
In The Sims, there is no such thing like, more is less, or realism is the way to go. There are no rules and no way to do it right. Every build and every creation has its own mood, its own style and its own background story. That is why it is difficult to say, these are the do’s and don’ts regarding landscaping.
But since I have been playing The Sims for more than 15 years now, there are some things I learned that I would like to share with you.
I normally build without custom content, because my creations can be downloaded easier that way. However, there is one set of items in build mode I cannot live without. Let me tell you all about these windows and doors by NynaeveDesign!
Guys! I have some very exciting news!
As of this moment, I have shared my first build on The Sims Resource!
I really want to connect with this community on more platforms and I want to share my builds with more people. TSR is a platform I have been using to download custom content for some time now, but I liked the idea to offer a selection of my favorite builds on this platform as well.
I got so many suggestions for collaborations, giveaways, party location builds and shell challenges which I will all be working on from now on. I really liked the idea of introducing a challenge which hasn't been done yet. I see so many tiny house, shell and basegame challenges, but I have never seen mine...
Like most people in Europe, my own interior mostly contains of furniture from a certain Swedish furniture store. It looks good, the collections are diverse and the price is fair. That's why I am so pumped about this custom content stuff pack by Illogical Sims.
For someone who likes to experiment with the looks of their sims, I feel like the game does not come with enough options in the body art section. Yes, with each pack some new tats are introduced, and discover university finally has piercings (very limited options though), but these quickly get old and boring. So, just as with furniture and clothes, I refer to custom content.
