I recovered three backups for my MSC family, but when I put the saves in my save folder, they don’t show up in game? What gives? That will be a work in progress I guess.
In the meantime, I’ve been playing with my showtime sim. Oasis Landing is super fun and has lots of cute sims for her to flirt with. I feel like everyone is rich in Oasis Landing.
I turned The Mine into a dive bar and added a showtime stage. I also plopped down the Performance Park and Rent-A-Party warehouse (which is super easy to blend into the Oasis Look-and-Feel). I turned several of the “future lounges” into dance clubs or lounges. I still have a “future lounge” though because it’s super fun. :p
I still have no idea what grocery to use. There isn’t one in my save. I have no idea which to use. I plopped down the Town Life premade lot but it looks really out of place. I think I’ll put a rabbithole rug in one of my shops.
[P.S. You can download my updated, homeworld version of Oasis Landing here.]
Yesterday, I accidentally wiped the wrong backup folder and lost my favourite families- including my current Midnight Sun family. Didn’t realize it until I went to play right now. Goodbye Berman family. We hardly knew ye.
I would never think I’d be so sad about this kind of thing, but it’s affecting me more than I’d like to admit.
I have nobody but myself to blame…
Pearl and Elmer are teenagers!!
I’m considering sending Mena to boarding school, and I’m wondering how boring it would be if we sent these two along too. Expensive, likely- but I want them to get an assortment of skills before going to university.
The kitchen gets an upgrade so that they can bake using all their fruits! The children explore and collect items all day. They need to start working on their skills for university scholarships, actually.
I need to look up what they need for full rides.
Oasis Landing Updated by amandieu
[Download] includes world, CAW file, and Save
I downloaded Jack’s Oasis Landing as a suburb files but wanted a bit more homeworld functionality (work lots, parks, more residential areas, etc). I gave up on CAW near the end, so I recommend also using the Save, otherwise the world may feel incomplete.
A lot of the existing lots are great bases (like the future lounges) that you can change into whatever you’d like - a store, a bakery, a live music venue, etc. Go wild!
You can share and upload these files with anyone you want!
I needed a military/police building for my Oasis Landing save, so I made a “military prison”. Super small and simple, but great for sims in those careers. Lots of skill objects and a cool office if you are in the private investigator career and want to have a workplace.
There are some tiny cells and an inmate recreation area inside. If people are interested, I’ll release it separate from the save. :)
So up until now, I’ve always been able to place lots over trees/rocks etc in CAW and they would just go away. Not anymore… I just popped into the exported game and there were trees poking through lots everywhere!
Finally got my Oasis Landing Update exported. I had to stop working in CAW because it was just constantly crashing. EUUUGH. I’ll upload the Sims3Pack + CAW files later today.
The World will have a bunch of empty lots, but will be missing families, shops (consignment, elixir, comic books), a bowling alley, salon/tattoo, junkyard, and equestrian stuff. However, I hope to upload a SaveGame with those all included. I only used one Lunar Lakes rabbithole (criminal hidehout).
I think the only two main rabbitholes that are missing are police/military. I’ll have to add them in the save game. I don’t want to use CC, but I might have to use rabbithole rugs for them.
I deepened one of the trenches, hoping to make a diving area. However, they make everything so glitchy. I’ll try in the save game.
Another nighttime screenshot - but look at that swordfish! It’s perfect and gigantic! He normally sells anything over a certain value, but that’s getting mounted for the cabin!!
