Okay, been gone ages, again.

I apologise to those who actually check back here >_< I've just got started in a new job, so life is really, really hectic. And I've moved out, and I don't have internet, yet. *sighs* So, I'm going to *try* to update on the weekend, because I've built quite a lot!

And HappyThoughts thank you for the tip about parsimonious, although I already have a lot of their stuff, I haven't been on there in a while, and a few things sparked my interest.

I'll update this post with the new stuff on Saturday. Hopefully. ^_^

caffeinated.joy that looks amazing! I would love to draw like that. And lilmissemo the child (i assume) in the field is very eye catching, really pulls you in! =]

I do photography, and I guess although I've not been published or employed as one, you could say I'm not so amateur anymore, as I've actually done a degree in the subject. Here's an example of my photography:



I do digital art too;



And traditional art;


If anyones interested you can look at those in full, and others at my DeviantArt page or on my own webpage: RKG-Photography which I made myself! (just a tiny bit proud of that >_< )

EDIT: Which links? The ones just above? Erm, well www.beansprut.deviantart.com and www.applecrackers.co.uk (then look under the banner and see RKG-Photography, as thats where my site is hosted. If its the pictures (or in fact the links!), then I don't know why they aren't working as they all show up and work for me =/

Well my beloved and I will be spending the evening together (as usual on a Monday, after they get home from work), eating junk food (nachos, doritos etc) and watching a movie, before going to bed. We can't afford to do anything special this year, but being together is wonderful anyway.

Well I'm back again with another holiday lot, this time Western Themed!

Sorry I've been gone so long,life just got busier for a while.

Advertising blurb:

"Yeehaw! Time for a giddyup round to the 'Best of the West (2011)' Award winning holiday destination! The Wild and Western Hotel invites you to mosey into town, take a stop at our watering hole and stay a while."




Forgive the cheesy-ness of it hehe my sims like 'theme-parks'!

Incidentally, if anyone knows where I can get a good motel sign, that would finish up my other lot I'm working on! But no worries if you have no clue, I'm still searching around myself. Hope you're all well and looking forward to Valentines Day!

I play Sims 2, I'm even still collecting (slowly) the EPs for it. I build lots (houses, Community & Holiday), I play with my Simmies (occasionally) but I don't do the story thing. I used, but I have more important fish to fry at the moment haha. Job seeking being one of them,

I'm not ever going to go over to Sims 3...if they bring out a Sims 4....well....we'll see what they've done with it by then...

Haha! The giant windmill is actually not a deco object, its one of the ones that has to go outside of lots >_< They just seem to show up really detailed from the right angles on my lots haha, no idea why, they didn't used to! Mm well when I say 'holiday' I mean like a vacation, just somewhere to go when you need a break from work or want to sight-see, they aren't xmas themed or anything - although mine are going to be themed, just not themed by time of year hehe. Holidays are great ^_^ particularly spring/summer ones. My simmies are going to be off on hols a lot I think, when they aren't taking care of their own businesses (big fan of OFB here =P).

Almost done with a fairytale style lot, which I will be showing pictures of soon.

17/01/11 15.45: Yay! I've finished the FairyTale lot!

Welcome to the Sims-Style Disneyland (not that I've been to Disneyland, but I imagine is pretty fantastical)! Here's the advertising blurb for this holiday destination:

"Where Dreams Come True...TM

Disclaimer: Hyperactive children are parents own responsibility."





If you wonder why I might seem a little wedding-mad at the moment, I am in the process (very very long process) of organising/planning a wedding thats very close to my heart ^_^

Yes, I am enjoying BV, even though the lag is terrible sometimes when I'm actually playing families because I like to use the biggest lots to design on, and have tons of NPCs about doing things (chefs, waiters, maids, concierge, shop assistants, baristas etc etc). I haven't managed to find/see any of the new NPCs though, like Bigfoot, which is a little annoying. I like the new roof types though. =]

I'm currently designing a set of three lands (one tropics, one mountain, one asian) with loads of different resorts on them, and I'm almost done with the first holiday lot that I'm going to show you!! *jumps around happily* I'm going to use these three lands to send the currently pending self-sim and fiance-sim to haha, since we can't afford to go on holiday in real life at the moment.

Thanks for the compliments about the Eco Home - I'm actually quite interested in ecology and eco-friendliness. ^_^ Have a good sleep! I'm loving the hat hehe.

Thank you! Actually the pool is all outside, but it surrounds the whole of the house (hence the roof garden, otherwise they'd have no greenery! O_O ), I guess if simmies were really people they could use the pool to swim in, because they could just hop over the mini fence, but simmies being simmies, they can't 'cos I didn't give them a ladder or a diving board haha.  Evil

I got bought Bon Voyage for Xmas by my fiance so I should have some weird and wacky (and hopefully some nice ones too) holiday destinations to show soon. Meanwhile, enjoy a random house I made a very long time ago, in a traditional sort of style, but with an "eco-friendly" twist.


9  Simmers' Paradise / Where Can I Find...? / WCIF: These Outfits/hair? on: December 08, 2010, 01:15:35 pm
I know I started a WCIF thread a while back from a dress, and noones found that one (even me =[) as yet, despite lots of searching, but here are some other pictures I found from around that time (when my old comp died on me), and I would really like to find these outfits too. Any help is greatly appreciated, so thank you in advance.



Both of these outfits, the fur coat was an accessory put on over the dress, if that helps. And these hairs too, if anyones seen it someplace.



This corset/swimsuit and the hair is the same as the first picture (I'm looking for it still).



This forehead tattoo-thing...I can't seem to find anywhere, even though I've found the hair and the outfit haha.

I know thats a lot of CC, but very seriously;

Thank you, thank you and thank you if you manage to find any of these!

Edit: Okay, I cut two of them out. I guess i'll ask about them at another time.

I haven't updated in a while, mostly because of the snow over here in England (I don't know if any of you have heard/experienced any of that?) but I guess also because my partners had some time off and we spent it together.

Anywho, moving on, HappyThoughts heres that house you were asking about! Its actually a sort of apartment complex, a peaceful one I always imagine, where people go to be calm and do a bit of soul searching. As usual, it comes fully furnished.


11  Simmers' Paradise / I Want My Own Thread / Re: Lady Rose's Sim House Portfolio on: November 19, 2010, 04:50:33 am
Aaah, okay, I will bear the 24 hours in mind next time =]

HappyThoughts - yes, I will share some pictures of that home if you'd like. I'll go into the game and take some pics since I haven't got any yet. I guess it kind of got overlooked when I was having a building spree haha.
12  Simmers' Paradise / I Want My Own Thread / Re: Lady Rose's Sim House Portfolio on: November 18, 2010, 12:11:32 pm
Hopefully its okay to reply to my own thread, even though noone else has for a while. For those who check back in, I've got one of my older houses here that I'd like to share with you. It got a kind of Mexican/Mediterranean feel, I think, so I hope you like it. I thought it would be nice to show a 'warm' house in all this bad weather we're having (over here in England).


13  Simmers' Paradise / I Want My Own Thread / Re: Lady Rose's Sim House Portfolio on: November 09, 2010, 06:12:06 am
caffeinated.joy - Thanks for changing the link for me, must've pasted more than once by accident or something >_<

HappyThoughts - Glad they'll be of use to you. Tis one of my favourite CC sets.

I finally come bearing proper pictures of the Japanese/Chinese house. My games been crashing lately for no apparent reason (I quarantine all my CC so I've tried taking bits and pieces out that have gone in recently), but it won't stop me trying to make my houses haha!

Heres the final mock up, the only thing I forgot to put is that its fully furnished, but you can see that in the pics.

14  Simmers' Paradise / I Want My Own Thread / Re: Lady Rose's Sim House Portfolio on: November 03, 2010, 10:26:11 am
Thank you both! I plan to go in game today and take some proper shots of it.

HappyThoughts Its all finished. Believe it or not, I furnish before I finish off the landscaping so the house is always the first thing done. For you, here is how I did the greenhouse -
Lethe's Victorian Greenhouse
(Mod The Sims Link)

Its gives you all the side windows and roof windows you need to make it. Plus you can use it to make modern/space age stuff too (something I'm still playing around with in my game)!

Hopefully I will have more things to pop up on here soon.
15  Simmers' Paradise / I Want My Own Thread / Re: Lady Rose's Sim House Portfolio on: October 27, 2010, 02:25:13 pm
Heres a home I finished making literally five minutes ago [hence no estate agent type stuff yet, I'll update it when i go back in to get proper shots]. I am so pleased with it, that I had to share! My first ever properly-used boolProp home! Yay! Its taken me about 3 hours to make, on and off, because of all the bridges, but I had the idea in mind from the beginning and I just couldn't let it go. Anyway, without any further ado;

A Japanese/Chinese Mixed-Theme house Preview!
