Working hard building a Japanese city!

I finally found a tutorial for adding .package files that gets results and with that I was able to dl tons of custom content I had been eyeing from Mod the Sims and from links on My Sims 3 Blog. I saw tons of really cool Japanese items an that inspired me to build a whole neighborhood from scratch!

Finding a blank world though with a Japanese city feel proved to be my toughest challenge yet, well maybe second to the time I dl'd CAW and tried to make a world (which I don't have the patience to develop the skill). I saw tons of already made Sim versions of Japanese cities but the thing with most Simmers is they buy all EP's and SP's when they come out so most of the worlds I coudn't download (I only have WA, LN, and HELS). I also don't plan on buying Generations, I love the items it comes with but I see no real need for what the game offers since I never play my families really in depth anyway.

I have posted on the forums a request (I should check that at least to bump it) and hopefully someone will take on the challenge. I willing to gift considerably but I didn't mention it in my forum post because I don't want (1) someone who's not skilled at world making doing it just for gifts and (2) someone skilled doing it just for gifts (I do peoples request because I simply love building, generosity people!) and (3) someone throwing up a world that doesn't meet requirements simply to get gifts.

I found a blank world called Unmei no Shima which is nice and what I'm using to build my lots on but I'm still loking for the world that's just right. I'll be posting pictures of the progress since I'm tackling alot of big building projects (I built my first apartment YAY!).

Here's the first set of pictures. It's of the downtown area with all the shops and bars and all those narrow alleys you find in Japan.  I'm alternating between the lots to keep from annoying my self working on the same lot for hours.

This is all located on one 50x40 (I think that's the lot size) lot. I split it in two and built a chain of shops on one half, a narrow alley way in between, and in the front (the last picture) there's two love hotels (google it, I also will not upload this to the exchange since kids are one the sims 3 site, even though design of my hotels are pretty innocent) and a clothing store.

You can't see it in the pics since I hadn't built it yet but I built more shops and clubs in the same manner next to this lot. I only have pictures of the club for that lot since that's all I've built.

Expect more update post for my currentl unamed world.

I'm considering doing an Interiors page to do a mini newsletter of interior ideas, tips, etc. but maybe I'll leave that for my main page but I want to keep the main page for press releases.

Well that is all.

The Greenview House Showing + Download

The Greenview is a fun house I built for a particular Sim couple in mind (and ended up building another house for them instead haha). Both the interior and exterior is not your normal tradtional family home with neutral colors inside. There alot of purple and black with a bit of a goth rocker feel.

There's 3 bedrooms, 2 bathroom, 2nd story deck above the carport. It is unfurnished for Sims moving in with furniture or Sims who just like to decorate themselves. It's just under 53,000.


Cantina Bar & Grille- CC FREE version Download

This is a Mexican bar and grille I built about a week ago. I'm pretty happy with it. The pictures are of the CC version but the link is for the CC Free version. I haven't uploaded the CC version yet on the exchange but will update this post when I do.

The bars look the same minus the custom bar wall art. The day of the dead art is still present, I just used a CAStable piece of wall art I got from the Sims 3 store and made day of the dead patterns to CAS it with.

 The two shot below have the non CC version

 This is he CC day of the dead art.
