SimsVille Up Hill Elementary School

I've been in need of a new elementary school for quite some time now. This round I had 25 students, divided over 3 classes, but I only had 2 classrooms!
With my ever growing population, next round I'll have 30 students, it was time to build a new one.

I've had an idea in my head for some time, it all came down to actually start building, and here is the result:

The picture doesn't show too much of the school, but I couldn't fit more into the picture.
The school is based on my own elementary school, with some major changes of course, the real one is much bigger, and consists of 3 different buildings.

The Landgraab Estate - DimSimTown

For the N99 April Forum Project, we could ask for residential lots for our sims, and if you liked them you could place those lot in your hood - I've got a lot of new lots since that project!
At that moment I had my Landgraab family sitting in my family bin for quite some time, and I took the opportunity and let the house hunt on N99.

Let me first give you some information on the family:
Max Landgraab comes from a wealthy family. He's an only child, and always got what he wanted. When he was 33 he met Hélène Nova, and 2 years later they got married. At that time she was only 27. Another 2 years later they welcomed their son, Malcolm, in their family.
Max is the head of Landgraab Architects, located in downtown Simmeria, and the firm is doing great, they get hired for different kind of buildings, and every one seems very happy with their work.
Hélène is a fashio designer and the owner of different H&M stores all around SimsVille and Simmeria. She named her shops after her and Max (Hélène & Max). The stores are doing great as well and she's looking in to opening another one in DimSimTown.
Since their son turned 12, they moved to DimSimTown - suburb of SimsVille, to live closer to their jobs.
(Max is now 50, Hélène is 42 and Malcolm is 13)
And here is where I come with the house hunting, I was really uninspired to build one myself, and I wanted something I would never come up with, so I posted at N99.
These were their specs:
  • Modern looking home
  • At least 3 bedrooms, I don't exclude them expanding their family
  • An office for Max
  • A studio for Hélène
  • They want a garden
  • Suburban area

Welcome to SimsVille City Hall

Some time ago I already posted some pictures of my City Hall, it's wasn't a real lot tour, but still you got an idea of what I did witht the place.
Some days ago I visited my City Hall again, I wasn't really happy with how it looked anymore - this happens to me all the time - so I decided to redecorate it all over again, and here's the result.
At the end of this post I have also added a small lot tour of my newest restaurant, Maison Mama.

Well this is the front of the building, with the main entrance. There are 2 floors and a completely furnished basement. There are offices for the hood coucil, a meeting room, a function hall, a restaurant, a library, a court room, and a room to speak to the people or press.

Lack of updates...

It was all going so well, I was able to post updates frequently, reply to comments, and comment on other blogs without any problem, untill all of a sudden I had no time left for my sims!
Since my last post I was able to keep up with one blog, and even that hasn't gone smooth. I did found some time to fire up the game, and prepare the next family, extended family and their friends for their next update, but I wasn't able to do anything else!
Last week I fired up the game 3 days in a row, and I closed it at the end of the day without being able to play at all!
I also planned on contributing in the June Forum Project at N99, because it was something I needed in my game as well, but so far I haven't gotten around to doing anything for it! I'm really sorry about this Starr! I will get around eventually, but at the moment I'm not sure when.

I know it's good to have life besides playing sims, but I do miss my sims, and I wish I'd had more time to play!
At the moment it seems likes things have slowed down a little bit, and with some luck I might even be able to write the next update, because I have all the pictures already, and even find some simming-time tomorrow, and prepare the next family for their play-session, because I'm in need of some new buildings for that update!

In the mean time, happy simming!

Hillside Park

In my last birthday-post some of you said that you wanted to see more of the park Dirk and Catherine took their daughters, Elisabeth and Margaret.
Since I like showing the lots I've build, that I'm actually happy with I don't mind showing you this park.

The park is Hillside Park, and as the mane already says, it's build on a hillside in SimsVille.
As most lots I build it's inspired by the picture of a park I saw. If I remember correctly it was a park by Carla from Sullivan.

So this is Hillside Park. As said before it's build in the hillside in SimsVille. It connects 2 streets, Upperlane and Downhill.
I'm really crappy when it comes to naming things, like streets, communitylots, parks, ... So I'm sorry, I know the street are lousy again!
