Ers'Ors Manor, 5 BR + nursery
« on: April 28, 2013, 07:21:59 AM »
First of I want to thank everyone who helped me out with advice while I struggled to finish this one off. I have now taken and uploaded all the pictures and welcome you to a guided tour of the house. I will post 2x10 pics since I think 10 is not enough to show it off properly (I will also link to the gallery. The download file will be attached to the first post.

Lot: 64x64
Built for: 29S Falls Ave in Moonlight Falls but can go anywhere (will probably not look as good though since it's landscaping is made for Moonlight Falls).
Costs Furnished: §448,818 when placed on 29S Falls Ave Moonlight Falls
Cost Unfurnished: §195,058

EP's: Supernatural, Pets, Late Night, World Adventures, Seasons, Generations, Showtime, University Life, Ambitions
SP's: 70's, 80's & 90's, High-End Loft, Fast Lane, Town Life, Master Suite, Outdoor Living

Only free store content (a painting or two)

Warning: This house had lots and lots of stuff in it, not to mention the garden i packed with bushes, plants, trees and rocks. I would not recommend playing this without the "enable object hiding" checked. And if you know your computer is not so powerful be careful.

Also, this lot contains spawners (2 spring flowers, 1 butterfly, 1 koi fish, 1 turtle) if you have to rotate the lot during placement they could multiply. Remember to delete excess spawners or you'll be bugged down.

The house has been thoroughly checked and all objects seem to be working and minimal pathing issues have been found.

View from the street.


Tree house, fire pit and fairy castle garden.


BBQ area with outdoor seating and view of vegetable garden.


Pool with bar, loungers and hot tub area.


Layout of the ground floor.


Layout of the second floor.

Fantastic work! It's brilliant. I love the colours :)

Thanks!

The colors was one of the ways I kept the rooms separated in my mind when decorating. When you have a house as big as this it's impossible to keep it all straight, so I had to come up with some little tricks. Also, I think most EA houses has too little or too dark coloring. I wanted to add a lot of color without it hurting your eyes to much.

Enable objects hiding is one of the things that made my ID playable towards the end. It just helps the game run more smoothly when you have a lot that is stacked with stuff. The downside is that objects on non-active floors (such as the outdoor shutters) won't be visible. So, when I was taking the outdoor shots I had to enable it - leading to my game crashing 2 times...I guess my computer isn't strong enough to handle the house either.

I did have a family of five (toddler, child, teen, and 2 adults) living there as I was testing it though, so it is possible to use it with more than one sim at a time.

The upstairs floor plan was originally going to have 5 bedrooms and the original teen room was where the kid beds now are. But I never could get the hallway and bathrooms in any order when I was trying to place the walls so I finally gave up that idea and just created two big rooms. The colors and the rose over the bed are part of the earlier design and something that I think I'll use in the future. It's amazingly versatile once you realize you can recolor it to fit with the wallpaper.

I'm just so proud of it that I wanted to show it off.

Ever since I came up with that I've been using it in many of my builds. The only thing that's not so great with it is that that particular chair is an armchair and won't let the kids do the preside over royal court interaction. If they could, that would be everything my sim kids ever did.  ::)

Words cannot describe how AWESOME this house looks.  :o Installing this as soon as I can. (Pets and Seasons aren't working on my computer, and with a spectacular build like this, I'd want the full experience)

You do need the "full" experience. Especially since a lot of furnitue is from those two EP's, not to mention it being placed in Moonlight Falls.

I've done a few very large mansion style houses, so I know exactly what you mean about it being hard to keep track! AND.... I ALWAYS have problems with lag when building/playing large houses. So that cheat is going to be VERY useful :D

I find it very useful. But the game still lags in build mode, especially when you are using the style tool. It's not a magic fix it (just didn't want you to get your hopes up too much).

This is amazing. Absolutely breathtaking. I can't imagine how much time and effort went into a project like this. If I had the EPs needed I would absolutely be downloading this.

We have a limit of 10 images for Swap Shop entries.  Between your two first posts, you have 20 images.  Would you please make the changes to bring it down to 10?  The rest will have to be viewed using your link to the Gallery.

It really is a stunning house.  I love the decor and use of color in the interior.  A masterpiece!

Thank you Raia!

I have been working on this house for a long, long time. Almost 7 months since I started as soon as I got Supernatural. I haven't worked on it all the time, but just getting the layout of the interior in a good order took almost forever, since I built this one more from the inside out than the outside in. I tried multiple ways to do the ground floor before I found something I wanted. Then I decided I wanted it on a foundation, so I had to redo it all again. I also changed lot sizes twice (it was on a 40x40 lit to start with).
The whole project was almost too big to see through because I tired of it from time to time, hence the long wait. But now I'm super happy I actually finished it - and I love the way it all came together!

I've culled it down to 10 pictures over the two posts. I don't know why I didn't just go with 10 to begin with, I guess my exuberance for finally finishing the house made me lose my head. Thanks for setting me straight Pam.

And thank you for your kind compliments. The interior design is something I'm very proud of.

Thank you for sharing this wonderful home. I've got it placed in Moonlight Falls and moved in one of my favorite sim couples. They're currently childless, but that'll have to change so I can experience all the child and teen-friendly areas in the house and outside. You know, I'm not generally fond of pink or traditionally girly things (although I am one), but your teen room is just absolutely beautiful. The dusty pink/mauve shades are striking, as are the furnishings. All the effort you've put into the whole house really shines through both inside and outside.
PS. I peeked in the treasure chest. Thanks!

It makes me so happy to hear about people enjoying this house! Your sims definitively need children for the full experience.

I, myself, isn't very into super girly stuff either, but there are so many nice shades of pink that are more neutral than the hot pink my sims usually favor so I have found that a more muted shade is easier to live with.

Glad you found the little gifts my sims left behind.

Thank you so much. And you can - you just have to practice a lot. If you put picture up on the Official Showboat Thread people will give you advice if you ask for it.

Totally amazing!  I wish I could download it but my stinky pc is giving me fits as is, even with a new video card.  I love the peachy pink room the best but they are all awesome.  You done good!  *sorry Pam.  I know it's you did well but this was funnier.*

Thank you! I would definitely be careful about downloading it if your computer is playing up.

I like the pink room to, but I think my favorite is either the library or the family room with the throne and play area. I had so much fun coming up with the idea for that room that it's one of the ones I like the best.
