Exterior of the new house.

I built a new house for the Mattisons (the other one had some issues that were bugging me, like the roof staying in view in build mode) and am taking my time decorating. There’s a surprising amount of stuff in buy mode for this base game, and some of it is halfways decent, despite its clunkiness, but I really miss CAST. 

I also had a “grrrrr” moment when I realized that the ceiling lights disappear when you hit “tab” for camera mode. I had some really nice chandeliers above that dining room table! Also, while I like the lighting options, the indoor rooms seem dark, no matter how many lights I add. I had to brighten these pics a bit.

Despite these annoyances, I’m looking forward to playing some more! I’m in love with my Sims already.

Huzzah! I’ve built my first TS4 house! I went with a Sears-ish plan, naturally.

A note to my followers

Just wanted to let you guys know that I will be tagging all of my Sims 4 posts with “sims 4” and “ts4”, so if you want to block them, you can use Tumblr Savior or XKit to do so. I don’t expect to move completely over to TS4 (for one thing, it won’t satisfy my “make a whole town over from scratch” or “build a restaurant” urges ;), so it’s not like I won’t ever post TS3 again, but I don’t know when I’ll get back to it. At any rate, I’ll understand if you unfollow!

So many tables. So much good.

It might be ‘the end’ for TS3, but not for me! And not for you either!!

We have so much more to explore - but for now - go and download this handy dandy set!

YES! This set is fantastic, everyone! Go download it! :-D

Love your handwriting! It kind of reminds me of the FRIENDS font!

Why, thank you, Anon! :-) That’s pretty cool!

I was tagged by Martine and Heavensims to do the handwriting meme. So I present to you my messy handwriting! (Well, it’s not so bad here, as I was trying to write neatly, but normally it verges on meaningless scribbles.) I won’t tag anyone in particular, but feel free to do it if you want!

Thanks so much to those of you who answered my question about what you’ll be doing with your Simblr once TS4 is released! It sounds like most of you will be keeping your same blog and tagging accordingly. I think I’ll do that, too, since I’m not sure I could manage more than one blog! :)

I look forward to seeing your TS4 pics! (And I’ll continue to view your TS3 awesomeness as well.)

A quick note about the Whimsett Cove Business Lot

Forgot to mention, I use a couple of default replacements that might make my lot look different from yours:

And I use Alverdine’s Shiftable Curtain mod, so if some of the curtains/shutters/awnings look weird, that might be why!

(I’ve added this to the original post as well.)
