First and foremost, no, this is not the surprise that was mentioned in my recent update video. So, I’ve been wanting to build something lately. I love creating lots in The Sims 3, and even though I’m not the best at it, it is still really fun to create things for my game. Today, I have decided to create a strip mall for my sims. It is still a work in progress but I did finish the very first store! It’s a clothing boutique (Sara’s Fashions). I love the way that it turned out. Here are some screenshots of my progress:
I really cannot wait for the finished product. I’m going to take my time with it because once I get tired and bored, I get lazy and slack when it comes to furnishing. That is one tip for newbie builders like myself: Take breaks! Build once you’re in the mood, and only then, otherwise, you will not be satisfied with your work. I also started on a cafe. I thought it would be cute to use Katy Perry’s Sweet Treats, but umm… that was a total FAIL. Lol. I’m going to make it a normal, calming cafe as I originally planned. Here is a look at my Sweet Treats fail:
Well, I’ll try to keep you guys posted on my progress. The outside looks great as well, but I won’t show you guys until it is fully completed. I have to leave something for the imagination, right? Lol. I love you guys and thanks for reading.
This opinion is based off of my first impressions from screenshots and the trailer, so after the game is released, things could change.
I have always played the typical suburban family when it comes to my sims. So when the rumors of a Supernatural expansion pack were confirmed, I kind of cringed. I was hoping for something more like Free Time, University, or Seasons from The Sims 2. Instead I was hit in the face with fairies, witches, and werewolves. From looking at the trailer, it looks like it could be a lot of fun to play around with for a while, but I am not the type of person that will create any of those three supernatural creatures more often than a regular human sim. It is just not how I play the game.
There will be a new fortune teller profession that I am excited about. The new furnishing items looked pretty neat as well. There is supposed to be new hairstyles, clothing options, and sliders in CAS, along with a new town called Moonlight Falls. Of course Moonlight Falls will be filled with supernatural beings, so I don’t know how much time I will spend there in my normal gameplay.
All in all, I am not as excited for this as I would have been for a weather or university themed expansion, but I still think that it will be interesting to play. I do not dislike this expansion pack, but I’m not in love with it either. I think it has potential to be one of those expansion packs that I fall in love with once I play it for a while, like World Adventures. We shall see. I will be getting the limited edition version and doing an LP on this expansion.
