At Home With Chuckles - It's here! Orbital Planes
« on: September 19, 2011, 11:54:05 PM »
Hello everyone and welcome to my home. Homes. I will upload my creations here. Have fun with all of my builds, and if you use something I've created in an upload please credit me.

I have a lot of store content, but will use it sparingly (or create a store-free version), and not at all for competition-builds.

Without further ado, may I present the first addition to this collection, (though not the first of my creations):

The Better Home and Garden

Price Furnished: $38, 227
Price Unfurnished: $26, 214
Lot Size: 15x20
Description: This 2-bedroom would-be starter house has a cottage feel, with a fresh, modern look. Featuring a quiet, tranquil garden area to relax in, this home is perfect for any sim who loves the outdoors! Even the indoor decor brings a bit of the outdoors in, with plenty of green leafy plants to keep your outdoorsy sim feeling at one with nature.
Content: All expansions (no stuff packs), some free store content: Leaftastic (plant)

The story of this creation: I was getting my hair done, and reading, wonder of wonders, a current magazine - Better Homes and Gardens. I chuckled to myself as I looked at some of the furniture they had used, realising that I have some of the exact same items in sims. The decor and garden in this house are inspired by some of the creations show-cased in the magazine (which I went out and bought after my hair was done lol).

I had set out to build a starter home, and the floor plan is one which I regularly use for a starter home, and easily adaptable. However, my creative streak took over, and well, it is no longer in the price range for a starter home.

On the La Maison de Plage, I'm guessing that I need to place a lot using the World Editor?  Did it automatically make the steep cliff side for you or did you do that when building the house?  It's beautiful, by the way.  I love the soft colors and natural light.

Wow, thankyou Pam :D

Part of the slope was there - I deliberately chose that spot for the slope, and the rest formed up as I built on it. You do indeed need to place the lot with the world editor. I find the 'soften terrain' tool very useful once it's placed to get it to sit right.

Am I being paranoid, or does the kitchen in the top house have some custom content? (Plant, painting)
On a happier note, those are some nice builds  :)

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 don't think there's any CC. The picture of the flower is from World Adventures, and the little wheatgrass planter comes with Late Night.

I love the houses, Chuckles. My favourite is the Chetwin, the outside is stunning.   :)

Thank you for the clarification.
I agree, the Chetwin makes me think "I have SO much to learn."  ;D

Chuckles your builds are totally awesome.  I love your use of color, which is usually a problem for me.  I tend to be monochromatic.  You've used soft pastels and vibrant modern black/red/white in different houses to really good effect.  If I HAD to pick a favorite it would be the Amaranth mostly because of the color palette.  I could argue myself around that for each of the builds because really, I love them all.  Well done!
What?  Grannies can't play games?
I speak perfect Nooblik, (and some Simlish)!

Have you looked at something like this to help you coordinate colors?

Your Quarters, Dr Rush

Price Furnished: $38,444
Price Unfurnished: $16,577
Lot Size: 10x10
Description: This futuristic living pad is perfect for the single sim. It is filled to the brim with high-tech whatzits and do-dahs. With masterful floor hygienators your sim will never need a shower; a teleporter out back to take you whereever you wish in the blink of an eye!; a hover bed for the best night's sleep; the fridge of a masterchef so your food will never spoil. Everything has been upgraded scientifically and mechanically to keep your sim in the best possible mood. (Science experiments have been used for maximum possible effect with walk-by effects on most items, and making use of the different possible moodlets available).
Content: All expansions (no stuff packs), and a lot of store content (a store-free version will be available shortly for those who don't have access to store content).

Future Shock Kitchen
Future Shock Living
Serious Artist's Easel
Glass Flowers Column
A-simetry Portal
Faux Chrome Chair

Stainless Toilet, Ultra Modern Dresser by D. Kyle,  Il-STand Bookshelf: available in the  Ultra Lounge 2010 Compilation
Romantique Wall Mirror: No longer available individually. If anyone knows what set this came in, please let me know so I can post a link.

I think that just about covers all of it ;)


I did take a little inspiration from Leto's ALU, in that it is future-based, and upgraded scientifically, but this is completely my own build and own recolours to match the Future Shock store items. As a bit of a sci-fi fan myself, this was one in works for a while anyway :D Once again it was supposed to be a starter unit... but teleporters are not cheap, even once fully depreciated they are $9k! If you already have a lot of store stuff this build is for you :D! If not, then the store-free version is in the making..

Chuckles, you are truly a master builder.  Kudos to you on every single build you've done so far, and for the ones to come as well.  I know they will be just as marvelous.  I'm downloading them all.

Thankyou everyone for the lovely comments :D I have so much fun creating them, and it really is the icing on the cake to see everyone enjoy them.

I look forward to the next building contest to give me ideas for what to build! Even though I grumble to myself about not having my store content, or some in-game content, (I really wanted to put the zodiac animals collection in Zenadu - I have a sim custom made for decorating purposes) I think I enjoy the challenge of finding something that fits, and making it fit the budget.

In the meantime, I have a townhouse to upload for you, Joria :D It is jam packed with store content and a little exy, so I may do a cheaper, store-free version later.

Chuckles, I moved your tread in this section since even if you upload only lots, it is still not following the scheme everyone else does - one lot = one tread. Here many members have similar treads where their creations are found in one place, they can announce new one etc. I hope your download links are not messed up with this movement, and I'm sorry if they are.
Also, since you post many links for store items, take a look at this tread to make them look nice and neat, which we are encouraging here.
If you need help with it, feel free to ask for it.

And as for your houses, they are fantastic! You proved to be a great builder in so many different styles! My favorite is Zenadu :)

Do you mean you would prefer them to be embedded? I had a read, and I didn't know how to do that before. It's not much more difficult that what I'm already doing, so I'll give it a go :) I was also considering laying out the contents so that each house has basic info like number of bedrooms, price etc, and an embedded link to the post.

Thank you, I'm glad you'll give it a go!
If you upload the pictures and informations of the lot in a separate tread with uploaded link, here you can add only basic informations and one picture of the lot with embedded link to the topic where you upload it. (I hope this is understandable sentence ::) )

Lilygirl has done something like that without pictures, as well as many other members, with little variations. I'm shore you can find the way that is the most suiting for you.
