War. War never changes.

After changes required a couple of times (lemme just tell you, taking pictures for 6 lots is time consuming and so easy to botch), my lots were finally approved! This was my first multi-part upload, my first trashy, extreme CFE lots, and my first time doing an animation for a thumbnail. All in all, a lot of firsts and I am proud that it is up. Though, needless to say, rather relieved it's done as well. Now I can continue my work on Riverview and work on my stories as well.

If you want to download any of these lots please visit my thread, A Series of 6 Fallout Homes on MTS.

Fallout Lots and Legacy Stories

So I finally finished the Fallout lots. They are ready for moderation in the MTS queue. I will link them as soon as they are ready.

I also have taken to posting my legacy story on my other blog, located here. I shall be updating the story as I finish a chapter, rather than the once a week that I started at. Also, due to asking around and inspiration from Benno's blog, I will likely be doing an heir poll as the time gets close each generation. So stayed tuned if you want a chance to affect the outcome of the story.

Lastly, I will also be working on the story of the Kidd's, as you saw in a previous post (the family at Melon Avenue). Hopefully, I can start working on that one soon and be ready to have it up in the next couple of days. I haven't decided if it will be a legacy or just a story of the already made generations. Needless to say, IF it does go legacy, it won't follow the traditional rules of the legacy challenge. Anyway, stay tuned for all kinds of updates soon!

Two Fallout Structures Done!

I love it when inspiration hits me! I was able to push myself to get two of the houses done today. Hopefully, I can get another 2 done tomorrow. I may end up adding some clutter to Minefield but we'll see. Anyway, here are the shots!

Framework from Fallout 3

I've always loved the sims. And, ever since getting married, my husband has got me hooked on Fallout. Namely, Fallout 3. Well, MTS is having an apocalypse theme this month and I have decided to attempt to make a series of homes from Fallout for the theme. I am a bit into one of the homes but not much. On my list are Big Town, Grayditch, Megaton, Minefield, and Springvale. If I am feeling particularly suicidal, I may decide to attempt Tenpenny Towers as well, but we'll see how long the rest takes me. Below are just the shots, obviously, of the Fallout version. I will update as I get things worked on.

1329 Prescott Street - Halliwell Manor

1329 Prescott Street is the home of the legendary Charmed ones. It sits atop a spiritual and Wiccan nexus and can be swayed to either good or evil, giving a power boost to those that control it. The home has been owned by the Halliwell line for three generations. In the ownership of the sisters, the home provides a base for good and a shelter for the family that sacrifices so much to protect the innocent.

The home follows blueprints as carefully as I could possibly get it. There are some changes, such as the house being wider on the exterior to fit everything inside. Also, the front room has been left empty. At one point, Piper comments that Grams had a sewing room. When Phoebe and Paige move out, a room becomes the fitness room so that front room could become any of those things, depending on your needs. Also WARNING: the basement is inaccessible. I did not discover this until the house was completely done. The basement stairs placed with no problem and no cheats(at the very beginning of lot building, before I had the rest of the foundation). However, my sim was not able to go down the short flight and then down the long flight as needed. If you want to use the basement, just teleport the sim there. It is the ONLY part of the manor that is inaccessible which I have to say is pretty damn good with all the nooks and crannies, clutter, and non-matching sets with floorplans. If you don't like this, don't download. You have been warned.

After a year of waiting (since the last one) I finally finished the manor and correctly! Thanks to missroxor, I decided to enter it into a Charmed manor contest (no results yet) which really gave me the inspiration I needed to get it done. Sometimes a deadline is all it takes! The version for the contest is a little different than the one I will be posting here. The contest version has no CC but is pretty heavy on the store content while this version is opposite, although most CC used is for aesthetics and clutter only. It is up to you to choose what you want.


The CC list is as follows; NONE is included with this download:

For the items in maroon that the store no longer has; if you have them great! If not, they should be replaced by the game. As with most of the items, they are for decor. I highly recommend, at the very least, the build content, the stove, piano, and mini TVs. However, if you want the home to look as it does in pictures, you will need all the items listed.
