OK, I swore that my next post would actually have story in it, but I lied. I’ve been staring at the next post on and off for days and not producing any text. I’m sure it will pass. There’s nothing wrong with the post plot itself; I think it’s cute.
Since 100% of you voters voted for Avalon, it’s not a big reveal that I’ve been working on it. I have almost all the public lots laid, and I LOVE it. It’s hard to create this many lots in the base game. I would like to download Create A World, but I am a Mac user. I’m casting about for access to Windows someplace so I can see how the more sophisticated lot placement works.
It’s listed as a medium-sized world, but it is LOT smaller than Sunset Valley. I think this will be a good thing for performance, but it has left me with only a few places where a lot as large as 40×40 will fit, and everything else has to be smaller. It was surprisingly hard to find an art museum and a library in the range of 30×30, but I’m thrilled with what I tracked down. I’ve been keeping a list of my downloaded lots and their locations so that I can both give credit and refer you guys to them.
I’m now working on residential neighborhoods. And here I get to the point of the post.
For genetic diversity, I’m going to be downloading a bunch of celebrity simselves and interesting faces from Mod the Sims. I’d really like to fill the rest of the place out with legacy families.
So here’s an invitation to export your family (it’d be nice if it were the whole family, since I need sims of all ages) and send me a link. It’ll be the ultimate in cross-pollination :).
And let me know if you’d like them to be made into Elves or not. By default, they’ll probably be Elfified :).
