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.
I know that I’m a few days late, this stuff pack (SP) was announced when I was taking some time off. You can find out more about this SP by clicking here. Now on with the first impression…
I knew that this was going to be filled with candy themed items, I just expected something a bit more subtle. I would never use these items in a living room or kitchen, only a bedroom or den (that’s a huge maybe on the den). I like for my sims games to be more real than fantasy, and adding trees made of candy would certainly take away from that. The two hairstyles that were shown didn’t impress me much, and the clothing in CAS would only come in handy if you have Showtime, unless you want your sims to really stand out in the neighborhood. It looks like there is a cute pair of short shorts that I’m looking forward to, and also some of the formal attire catches my eye. I’m really loving the children’s bedroom set. It’s going to be so much fun to work with. It also looks like there are three new pre-made community lots. I could be wrong, and EA could just be showing off the content, but I think I’m right. The community pools looks awesome, and I see myself using it. There seems to be some sort of community garden and another lot that I’m not too sure about. I will be purchasing this SP to really see what it can do, but so far, I’m not that impressed at all. If I were you, I’d wait until I did my review on YouTube to see if you want to buy it or save your money for the seasons EP. Yes, I believe seasons will be next (just a prediction).
