WIP - The New Town City Hall (that will be redone 10 or 50 times before I’m satisfied with it… for now, the entrance doesn’t look like I want. :/)
The new town (based on my lovely friend Rachel’s world) will be like Sandy Valley: a mix of various french style that you would never see all together in one town in France. And yep, considering the size of the fountain, it’s going to be big. *chuckle*

The Eco-District - from WIP to RIP

  1. the high-school
  2. the eco-café
  3. the canal
  4. overview
  5. the market
  6. residences

I already spammed you quite often with pictures of the Eco-District in my town, but sadly, this district has been affected by my Anti-Crash Plan and will be discontinued, so I post pictures of how it was before I gave up the project. It was still not finished, actually.

I had planned to add an organic grocery near the market, with a library at its top, a tiny park for kids, and a community house where it would have been possible for the inhabitants of the district to have a coffee, to leave their kids while they were going shopping, to organize meetings and teen parties.

I’m not bulldozing everything, though, as I keep the highschool & eco-café (both on the same lot), and two houses. I moved them in another place of the town, and bulldozed everything else. The eco-market will take place some days on my regular market place. The canal is actually on the same lot as the high-school and eco-cafe, so currently, I still have it, but it looks a bit silly where it is now, so I might delete it.

I’m a bit sad to have to give up that district, but I’m building another town where I’ll be able to put tons of new buildings and districts (before making everything exploding again! ;D)

Reply about “Save as…”

marimidnight reblogged this from aroundthesims and added:

i thought that “save as” was harmful to the sims 3. or am i mixing that up with “save and quit”?

It’s indeed the “Save and Quit” that is said to be bad, as the game might not be able to have the time to write correctly its files while shutting down.

"Save as…" also allows me to keep tracks of my game at various states. For example, if a save turns corrupted, I can still use the previous one. I also keep a save each time I install a new EP, so I can still see how my game was before I installed Late Night, for example, or at the time Seasons was released. This has no interest, though, except entertaining me! ;D

Long babble about my game

I first wanted to answer your comments and concerns about my game, but it turned into a long babble about how I kept it rather healthy for so long (maybe there’s few tips that can be useful?), and the problems I’m meeting now.Replies to your lovely comments will follow in another post. That one was already WAY TOO LONG!

Around my Sims | Non-story: the terrible A.C.P!


You might remember that, last sim-month, my game became unplayable with all the guests it was welcoming. It made me realizing that I was about to make my town exploding if I kept adding new lots and new Sims. At the inverse, I had to remove things. I discussed seriously about this with the mayor of the town… and it’s how got born the Terrible A.C.P, the Anti-Crash Plan… AAAARRRRRRGH!

Finally got a chance to launch my game, so I could immortalize a Simlish version of the wonderful day I spent with Sara and Kim, last week, in “real life”. <3

Around my Sims: Chronicles of Sim-August


Ooops, so my crazy game sessions had to slow down! I’ve been busy with real life, but I had also grieves with my game. With all the guest Sims I had, from the summer camp kids to the rock festival visitors (32 guest Sims!), my game made an overdose and got unplayable. I was about to skip the whole sim-august month, honestly.
I finally played (I had already played few days of Sim-August before), but I had lost all my motivation for it, so that non-story is lame, really. All I wanted was: ending with sim-august to see how my game would run in sim-september. I actually began to play Sim-September and I found back heart and mojo, but some changes will need to be made, as you’ll see next time…
Anyway, for now, you can read about what happened in Sim-August here! And sorry for making it so not interesting! :/

Around the Sims 3 | Stuff for Summer Festivals

When I set up my game for the annual rock festival, I realized I was missing many things I needed:

1- I wanted a cheap looking barista bar, that you could decorate your way. I kept the sophisticated coffee machine, though, because it’s not because you can’t afford a super bar that you have to drink bad coffee, right? ;)
2- My students and I needed a cheap Late Night bar. I meshed that one from kegs and crates. It will also be perfect for student parties!
3- I also wanted to have a small and neutral stylist station (I wanted my Sims to be able to have cool make-up or dreads, for the festival). I ended up by not using it much in my game, but a small stylist station was still needed, according to me! :)
4- I needed sound equipments.
5- No summer festivals without a camping. I needed more contemporary tents! I cloned these ones from Wolrd Adventures, but they probably work too if you have only Island Paradise.

I hope you’ll enjoy!
