Sorry about your game Seabody. What's the issue? I have had a fair amount as well (though now it's mostly ok).


It's crashing to a Blue Screen of Death in less than 5 minutes of playing. Flynn says it's my Graphics Card that needs updating, but I seem to have two so I've been a bit delayed in updating it.


I was wondering though if both you and Rathamon are ok with it, I could do the request?


Really, it's Rathamon's call.

Ouch blue screen of death. I get the random bugs and the unfixable disc auth failure. Though just learned a work around. good luck.

Ok. I'll see what he says.

Would anyone who has CAW be interested in making a sort of English countryside-themed world? I'm on a Mac so I can't use it unfortunately. From what I understand it's a lot of work, but I don't need buildings to go with it if that's too much work (and I imagine it must be unless there's someone else who's as keen on this concept as me, lol)!

Basically, what I'm looking for is countryside, but with a large coastline similar to that in Cornwall, with the cliffs and everything! As much as I like SV, Barnacle Bay etc. I'm a bit tired of the tropical theme and would like something that's green but still rough (not sad like Twinbrook). And I base this impression off of pictures and films, since I have never actually seen the British coastline except from onboard a plane...  ;)

* It would need space for a few big lots, to make room for all the LN community lots.
* It would be perfect if the city centre could be placed "to the back", sort of, with fields and stuff as unroutable terrain behind it, and then have a more open area towards the coastline so it doesn't end up like a flat island with lots of houses plopped in the middle.

Things I'd love to see:
http://nomadtravel.files.wordpress.com/2008/08/tintagel-coast.jpg <-- cliffs! :D
http://www.britsattheirbest.com/images/ii_norfolk_rotation.gif <-- fields separated by trees and shrubs!

If there is anything else uniquely British you can think of that is manageable, feel free to throw it in. I'd love to put in a few pubs, loads of cottages and a few estates (and move the Queen into one of them! Heh) plus a hoard of sheep, but alas, there are limitations. Except the pubs, there will be pubs. :D

So, any takers? I'd be forever grateful, but I can completely understand if it's too much work as well. :)

It wasn't in response to your request, but I am actually making a world very similar to the one you describe at the moment - thought I'd draw your attention to it, in case it's something you'd be interested in. The only difference is that it's an island, not a landlocked/coastline world. The link is in my signature, so feel free to check it out. Also, there will definitely, definitely be pubs :D Also, since it's still in progress, I'm open to suggestions/ideas about what to include, although bear in mind that I may or may not take them on board :)

So I'm creating a story and I would like a bachelor pad on a 40 X 40 Lot. I have all EP's and SP's up to Diesel. Please no store content unless it is Premium Content. I'd prefer it to be sleek monochromatic modern style, so everything would be shades of black, grey and white. Also I would like the entrance to be on the second floor, so you would get into the house by walking up a staircase to the "second floor."

So here is my envisioned Floor-by-floor breakdown:

1st Floor (Not the floor that you walk into when you enter the house) - LN Style Club: Dance Floor, LN Bar, Male and Female Bathrooms for partygoers, Stage with LN Instruments (portable piano not grand piano please); Gym with WA martial arts skill items and regular athletic skill items and a pool

2nd floor (Floor you walk into when you enter the house) - Sitting Room (with tv), Dining Room, Kitchen, Atrium in the center (i'd like the atrium to have no ceiling so it extends up into the open), guest bathroom

3rd floor - Library with easel and chessboard, master bedroom, master bathroom, music room with chairs and grand piano, lounge area with LN bar and pool and seating area (like for small get togethers),

4th Floor - 2 balconies: one with pool and lounge chairs and hot tub, other with gnubb, fireplace and seating area; Indoor Game area with Foosball, pool, shuffleboard, bubble machine thing, arcade games from LN and ST, darts; Indoor Museum area with paintings and sculptures

1st floor Basement - Big garage with lots of parking spaces, workshop with inventors table and sculpting station

2nd floor basement - Big home theater (with male and female bathrooms) with a snack counter (I will place the deep frier and ice cream maker here)

3rd floor basement - butler's apartment (like a mini apartment with kitchen, sitting room, bedroom and bathroom), creepy dark room (Premium Content magic items will go in here, and probably Alchemy when Supernatural is released :D), underground spa (Pool with plants and things and i will place the Fountain of youth here)

4th floor basement - Nectar Cellar with Nectar station

Yard - Small Pond, Large gardening area, Surrounding fence with a Celeb Gate from LN

I know its a lot but I have tried and failed to do this on my own so hopefully someone here can answer my prayers :)

:) I would absolutely love to do that, but my Simming computer is gone :-\
Do you need it immediately? I could definitely build it, but it could take 3 weeks to 2 months (first my laptop get back and then to build). :S

Hey guys I'm taking an extended hiatus... again. I'm out of ideas to build houses and I don't have as much fun designing homes like I used to; it feels more like a chore. So that's where I'll be, I will probably be back sometime. :P

I can take the request but I could only start Monday b/c I'm on vacation. But I could get it to you reasonably fast. And I can draw the floor plan out while I'm away. Would waiting to start Monday be ok? I really like your ideas.

Also I have some modern houses up on the swap shop.

I'm thinking of making a world for my friend, with CAW and I has the layout(large Island) and the Main part isn't enough, but I'd like a nice variation of resedential/community lots. I know where town centre, LN bars and celebrity district & main resedential area will be. I'm not shure how to put it all together seamlessly though. Alls I need is some examples, then I know what stile of houses to build. :D

If you're just looking for ideas, why don't you check out the Swap Shop or Exchange (obviously you shouldn't download lots to use in a world without at least asking the creator if that's ok) for inspiration? Have a play with road maps on a piece of paper or something to get an idea of where you want to place lots, and think about which buildings would be close to each other, and the world layout will come naturally.

If you're actually requesting people to build lots, could you be a little more specific about which lots you'd like built, and the 'look' you're going for? For example, are you looking for a residential house for a family, or a community park, or a block of apartments?

Hi! I have just moved my sims into Sunlit Tides, and I need 2 little LN Bars. An exclusive lounge on a lot 30x30, and a fusion lounge on a lot 25x25. I don't mind much how they look, just need them small (don't overcrowd them). And can one (or both) please have a bubble bar. I would make them myself, but I really don't know my way around making the celebrity entry gate thingies.
Please also be open to me editing them a little once I get them in game. :)

I should also have said: pretty pretty please? I'd really appreciate it :)

First, if I still have requests up please remove them, Tom.

I have three new requests. 

As some of you may know, I'm remodeling pretty much all the worlds except Sunlit Tides, that one really only needs a few venues.  I'm using my work and the work of the other talented Simmers here to recreate Barnacle Bay and Bridgeport, with their permission and credit given of course.  At the moment, my focus is on BB, which I'm calling Enchanted Havens.  I'm turning it into a fantasy world set for fairies and elves with only a very minor influence from pirates.  Nothing modern in style in it, but anything and everything fantastical and whimsical.  See the Showboat thread for pics of what has been done so far.  What I need now is a gym which should be on a lot size 40x40, a fire station on lot size 20x15 or up to 25x30, and a fusion lounge on lot size 30x30 or 40x40.  I have all EPs and SPs and worlds up to KP Sweet Treats and will soon have Supernatural.  I have lots of store items so they are fine but no patterns from the exchange or swap shop please.  Here's what I would like to see in the builds, should one of you talented people wish to take up this request:

Gym:  can actually be smaller, 30x30 or 30x40 but prefer the 40x40.  Make it as colorful and whimsical as you wish but colors should not be too bright nor too modern in feeling.  The usual gym equipment of course but you can also have a small lounge area and an nooboo area.  Even a cot for nooboos and a twinbed for tired kids would be ok.  A pool is definitely needed.  Hot tubs are great and if possible, including a massage area would be GREAT. 

Fusion Lounge:  whatever is needed to build one.  I'm really at a loss as to this particular kind of place.  Just make sure folks will have fun there and that it is fantasyland in tenor.  Maybe a karaoke area?  No parking spots needed as this will go right in the middle of all the other hot spots.

Fire station:  Agneza made a really fine one that is completely functional yet small and neat and fits on a 25x25 lot.  However, it is a bit too modern looking for Enchanted Havens.  I could use it, (I have her ok), but I'd really like to see one that is more fantasy oriented, at least on the outside.

Soooo, who's up for this challenge?

EPs: WA, AMB, LN, GEN, PETS
SPs: OL, Master Suite
No Store, please

I've been having problems with figuring out how to make my own houses/landscaping. I normally have to take a premade one from somewhere and redo the inside to fit my idea.

What I would love to see is a type of 'ruin' castle, more rustic than the palaces around, with a large garden (harvestable and non), pool (with place for hot tub), and a small family graveyard on the outside. On the inside, a turret/tower and a hidden room or two with a solarium/sunroom. The inside can be a shell, if you're willing. There are a few rooms I've been looking for, such as a master suite with a full powder room, a 'lab', and a laundry room. I got the magic pack (book and the cauldron/crystal ball), and am wanting a hidden room for all that.

Sorry if that seems confusing. Let me know if you have any questions.

EDIT: The type of castle I'm thinking of, is something like the Rookery that came in the House Library with Generations. That is a wonderful house, just small for my tastes.

I finished the gym myself today so cross that one off the list.  I desperately need a fusion lounge and can probably do the fire station myself.  Today I created my first Big Show Venue.  FAIL!  It looked so cool and I really loved it but no manager showed up and worse my game terminally froze BEFORE I saved so it's all gone.  Drat!  I could have turned it into a private venue.

Ok, I need two houses, one Victorian, and one ultramodern. No price limit, but they have to be on a 20x30 lot. For the modern one, I have the Ultra Lounge set, all except the youth sets. I have the Stancke collection aswell.

I have WA, HELS, Amb, FL and LN.

I have a request for a house, if anyone is interested in making it.  If there is already one made somewhere that meets these needs please point me in the right direction.  I have been looking and looking but haven't found it - and I am pretty sure someone has made something similar before.
I would like to give this a try, shall I PM you with my questions?

I have a Sunlit Tides request. I need a hippy beach hut. House can be small. Tiki kitsch is fine or not. But what I would really like is some outdoor space- place for a hot tub, hanging out, doing a bit of gardening and growing their own food. Think "Sim who left the rat race to live on a beach, swim, fish and get in touch with nature."
Anyone game?
