In last week’s episode, we learned that Ripp can’t get much rest at night, so he does what any lazy, sleep-deprived teenager would do: skip school for the day to take a good afternoon nap. (not like his grades can slip any lower than they already are.)

In his mind, it’s the ideal plan - the General doesn’t come home from work until 16:00, and Tank is out training all day for that stupid Athletics scholarship he wants so badly. Ripp tells himself he’ll just close his eyes for five minutes, but the clock has other plans. Tock tock tock, and before the sleepy head even knows it it’s half past five, and Tank is back home, not pleased one bit with what he finds.

Hi, just a question, in the backgarden of 130 Sim Lane, how did you do the foundation? Like the foundation level follows the stairs, is it done by using the floorelevation cheat or something? I'M SO CONFUSED! Also, I love your stuff by the way. :)

Hey wisteriasims! Thanks for the compliment :)

It’s actually not a foundation, but one of these walls by Numenor. I suppose they are quite similar to the cheat, although I’ve hardly used that cheat so I’m not sure.

Here’s a basic guide for those who are interested :)

The lower part of the ground was lowered 4 clicks with the terrain tool. I then build the foundations and stairs.

After that I selected the unleveled walls (the green box).

And then I placed a wall directly underneath the stairs. The foundations in combination with the single wall look ugly so I fixed that.

image

I removed a block of the foundation…

…And placed another wall there.

You basically keep going till you have removed all the foundations. Be sure to place a floor tile every now and then to avoid peaks like these:

They’re very harmless though, if you want to get rid of them you basically place a floortile near them :)

If anybody else needs any guides on particular build stuff feel free to ask!

So, somebody asked for a guide on how I make my fake ponds. It’s actually very easy! Click the pictures for a more detailed description of the process.

You can also place decks on top of the pond, but you can’t place fences underneath the deck. I recommended using Buggybooz’s lowest flower border to circumvent the problem.

Reflective floors and walls by Murano.

Hope this might prove helpful to some other simmers out there who are unsatisfied with the in-game ponds. Maybe one day I will discover a way to make straight canals, so I can finally build some Amsterdam inspired streets.

Man, this lot was a bitch to take pictures of. Anyhow! Strangetown’s only shopping lot got a new and (hopefully) improved layout. It features a boutique, a grocery store, an abandoned factory building-future arcade, restrooms and a tiny cafe I’m particularly proud of. In other words, anything a Strangetowner could possibly wish for! Interior shots to follow.

My friend Nelphaell Actually has this bed, and honestly speaking I wanted too, but they sropped to produce it. So I finally finished it. I was doing this two for almost a year. There’re still some disadvantages and I can’t say that this is a good thing for playing, but you cam use it.

You can download both of them here. The’re not linked so you can chose what you want a bed or sofa, of like me both.
