Lot Tour: The Willow

Laura reminded me that I hadn’t shown Pine Hollow lately, which I have been meaning to do. I had wanted to wait until I remodeled the university, but I’m not in too big of a hurry to do that right now since I don’t have any university students at the moment and it’s going to involve a lot of building and decorating. So I decided to go ahead and show Pine Hollow now in its current state and start on some lot tours that I’ve also been meaning to do.

As mentioned previously, I used AweSims’s Redcliffs hood, so the hood was already set up and loaded with lots, but I’ve been making some changes here and there to fit my game and the lots I wanted. It’s a beautifully designed hood though! I highly recommend it for anyone who isn’t motivated enough to build completely from scratch. I’m building and decorating lots as I need them while playing, so there are still changes to come to the hood but this is what it looks like right now:

No reason for this post other than that I liked the foggy atmosphere! 🙂

Downtown Arcadia

I’ve mentioned a couple of times in posts or comments that I’m building a downtown onto Pine Hollow. I never had one before because my old computer was slow to open subhoods so I didn’t like using them. Since my new computer runs faster I don’t mind having a subhood for Pine Hollow with new places to visit.

So I created Arcadia, a city that I imagine to be about 20 to 30 minutes from Pine Hollow.

(I imagine Pine Hollow to be on the other side of that mountain, where the road going up it leads to.)

Bios

I have a page up now called Family Bios, where you can find links to read personality details about each Sim in my families. Only the Smith and Gates families are linked right now, but I will have the pages up for the last two families after I post their first entries and introduce them to you.

Also, I have discovered the joys of playing with Autonomous Casual Romance. My Sims are already doing things I didn’t expect and keeping me entertained.

Hood pictures

Here are some pictures of Pine Hollow. It’s a little mountain town built along a canyon.

The main part of town, with the middle class homes in front.

The higher class homes are on higher ground so that the residents can literally look down on the rest of town.

(I’m using the Arbor Falls terrain from here.)
