So much feels!
Seasons and Outdoor Living are my faves!! However, I use the Nostalgic Sims 3 loading screen! It’s super cute.
I’m sad because a lot of blogs I like are choosing TS4 and completely dropping TS3. I just want to know if at least some people are sticking with TS3 or both TS3 and TS4
I’ve just started a new town as the first one was getting too crowded after 5 years of gameplay there, so I’m planning to play the Sims 3 as my main game for at least the five next years! ;D
Definitely sticking around! I’m sure there will be a brief honeymoon phase of TS4mania, but I plan on playing TS3 still. I have a few challenges I would like to do, plus- I love boats, horses, travel, university, working-from-home, etc. I can’t even play in a TS3 world without adding a million EP-related lots. I think that until TS4 has more EPs, TS3 will still reign supreme on my Tumblr.
Revisited ol’ Ralph from my MSC that I lost a while back. He was a downloaded sim, so I still had him around. Super sad about losing them still, but I feel like maybe this is alternate-universe-Ralph.
Dragon Valley Redux by amandieu
[Download] includes CAW files, required content, & readme.
I wanted a roadless Dragon Valley! With more EP content! So I made it and here it is! This isn’t a followers gift, but after recently hitting 500, I just wanted to include a big “thank you” to all you lovelies. I tried to make this world as “basic” as possible so people can tweak it to their historical preference. Everything you need to play is in the download!
You can share and upload with anyone you want! A tag would be nice, but not required.
My resource page has been updated to include Medieval CC!
Note: The world is a bit bare and the Farm/Fairy/Country store content could really make this world richer and more full, but I didn’t want a huge list of requirements. There are lots of shells for people to create shops and restaurants based on content they already own. Likewise, a lot of the furnishing is normal base game or EP content.
The harbour is about a day’s ride (walking) from the interior of the “supernatural” forest. It’s also half way to the village, as you must go around the mountain ridge.
My sim didn’t have any provisions, so she stopped at a shanty and grabbed a few veggies while her steed grabbed a drink. They made the harbour by nightfall where she could grab a bite and sleep.
Riding through the forest! It’s fun to finally be testing this world, but I’m still not feeling 100%. I don’t know how much work I’ll be able to do on this in the immediate future.
I’ve been playtesting the world a little bit, but I’m a bit ill right now, so I may just release the world + CAW files as-is today. That way you can play around in it before TS4 drops. (I don’t think I’ll be able to finish before then.) It’s very playable, just a little bare. To be honest, the only things I would add would be a recoloured school rabbithole (the blue church) and some more trees/grass. However, any tweaks I make in the future, I can just release in an update. Plus, you can play around with the CAW files to change or add anything you like. :)
I will hopefully upload it later today. I’ll publish all the screenshots that are sitting in my queue too.
I extended out The Commons apartment building, gutted the interiors, and added a militia “training ground”. If you want to put the military rabbithole here you can, but I like it as a gym. There are chin-up bars, archery ranges, martial arts training things, and a “jousting” practice run. :p
Wow! I can’t think of many people (that I know) that have actually completely a 10 gen challenge. When I checked out the Appleby tag with /chrono, I was saw that it took two years. Super inspiring. Any tips on sticking it out for 10 generations?
Gosh, thank you. That’s really lovely of you to say. *hugs*
My answer’s going to be a bit of a lengthy ramble, because I’m just so thrilled and proud of myself and am bursting with enthusiasm and I want to share it with anyone and everyone who’ll listen. XD
This is a lovely post that, I think, really gets to the heart of why we love the sims and why we keep coming back to these crazy virtual creatures. <3
Omg, just saw this in LGR’s CAS LP. Can’t stop laughing (which kinda hurts right now). I love it.
