Why garage doors hate me so much?! *sob*
I’ve been struggling with this thing for days, and only managed to make it decorative, as the animation for the opening door didn’t fit.
It’s a 2-tiles door, that is made to be put “mirrored” to look like a 4-tiles door.
But, mirrored, it gets all dark… *sobs again*
Does anyone have a suggestion to fix it? *puppy eyes* It looks OK if the building isn’t completely closed, or if there’s no roof.
Wait, garage doors were supposed to be animated in the Sims 3?!!! They have a closed and open states?!!!! But it doesn’t work, right?
Behind the scene - How armchairs are coming up to life!
WIP - The Storsele Armchair
WOOOT! When I began to mesh this, I wasn’t sure I’d be able to make it, but it doesn’t turn so bad! Still few adjustments, but YEAH!! Not even too heavy on vertices (2000 poly/2500 faces). *happy dance*
The Jules Verne Park, fun park (and still WIP)
Located under the Eiffel tower, that’s probably one of my weirdest lots… I usually build stuff inspired by real places (even if, at the end, it doesn’t look like any real place! :p), but for that park, I just went wild. I wanted it to fit with the Eiffel tower structure, so I went for a kind of fake 19th century feeling, with objects supposedly inspired by Jules Verne’s novels.
It might change again, because I’m not satisfied with the whole thing. It’s a bit too empty. I have still a toy shop area to add. And more stuff, but I don’t know what yet! :D
The last picture is the park restaurant, at the first floor.
Roller Skate at the Eco-District
I’ve moved the roller skate “ring”(*) from a car park to a plazza of the Eco-District. I’ve plonked a tree in the middle of the ring, but as Sims always make cirles and never seem to use its middle, it doesn’t disturb them at all! Great, because I hate the room those rings can take! :D
(*): I actually use my “sign roller skate ring”.

WIP - The Eco-District in Sandy Valley
- The new high-school
- Shell of the residential lots
- Deer unstanding how nature friendly this district will be! ;)
- The future bartender is so ready for the opening of the Eco-Café! (she looks familiar to you, doesn’t she? ;))
I’ve been working a bit more on my new district (eco-friendly, but modern, which is not my style at all, and vaguely industrial… post-industrial, if you consider it’s eco-friendly! ;p))
Copying Sara, I’ve finally built my new high-school there. I needed one, as my school was getting too small to host a pre-school (this idea being stolen to Soil! ;)), but I wasn’t sure where to put it. Downtown was too busy already, so why not this new district. *shrug*
Sim-Tito will be sure to have many customers with the high-school on the same lot as the Eco-Café! :)
There will be a couple of residential lots (2, 3 or 4), all built from the same shell.
WIP - L’Eco-Café
I’m working on a new district in my town, supposed to be a kind of urban eco-friendly district, and of course, of course, the first lot I had to build there had to be a community lot (you begin to wonder if my Sims ever spend time at home, huh?). So, here’s the Eco-Café, a place where Sims can drink all kind of herbal drinks or eat a tofu-dog, but where they can also crop some herbs from the community herbs garden.
This is a major WIP as ivy look silly as it is now, and as I suck at building anything modern… But huh, here’s the first “shot”! :D
You’ll hear again about that Eco-Café because I’ve been meshing new objects for it! :p
Side-note: Sorry to not be much online lately, but RL has been busy and as I’ll have a tiny surgery next week, I will still be a bit absent at least till wednesday. But I plan to upload an ATS3 update on Friday! :)
Still working on my jazz club, the Charleston, that should also be my entry for the The Perfect Night Out challenge, at the Simset Boulevard forum!
So far, it needs MORE CC! :p
