Hello. I don't know if anyone reads this blog anymore, considering I haven't been participating in the simming community for roughly two years. But, guess what, I might be coming back.

I quit for several reasons, the main ones being my computer's motherboard burning up and me trying to devote myself to my studies. I got the computer fixed sometime in August, but have been neglecting it ever since. Last night, however, I decided to boot it up, only to find all my Sims-related files untouched (along with some music I didn't even remember I had ever been listening to). What's missing, however, is a decent video card along with sufficient RAM, as the slots of the new motherboard are different from what there was before.

Now I need to decide if I want to start playing again. For all my studying and internet needs I have my Mac, meaning any expense to better the old comp would be for Sims only. I've really enjoyed this addiction-free period, but I'm kind of tired of having my house plans come to life on paper only. I also find it stupid to have an in most cases fully functional piece of equipment just tucked away in a box somewhere, rather than actually using the thing.

So I don't know, maybe I'll be posting some new content soonish. I want to finish developing Behemoth Isle, but I also feel like some new neighbourhoods should come to life. Challenging myself with a legacy couldn't hurt either. We'll see. :)

I'm still alive, although I haven't really played in a while. So here, have a picture of Behemoth Isle, a sub-hood of Kettlemumble.

I built a house. But then again, when was the last time I didn't build one? May I present you, the current star of Behemoth Isle - 4 Douglas Adams End.

I don't want to hear about any OMSPs for at least the next 10 hours, for I OMSP'd myself crazy trying to decorate that roofline. But I think the result was well worth the effort. In fact, I don't think I've ever been this satisfied with the look of a house before.

Plus points to those who realized it's the same house as 4 Plum Alley. Those of you who figured that out, might also remember I once promised to share that little house. Sadly, the combination of a lowered storey with an EAxis chimney going through it resulted in the lot becoming borked. Because of that, I recreated its belated twin sister with standard height rooms.

To me, this house looks simply magical at night. My imagination first went flying as I went into night mode. Hence the interior pictures being taken at a darkish hour.

Alongside giving that wallpaper I made one last use and reusing the stuff I end up putting in my houses a little too often, I also realized those mission style armchairs with recolours by who I believe was AveSims, as well as that mirror, really add that last bit of character to this room.

The reading nook. I wish I had had a sim living here during the photoshoot, so I would've had someone to light the fire in the fireplace. What do you guys this, who could be dwelling this humble living room?

As you can see, I played around with the ceiling's textures a bit. I was inspired by a club in Haapsalu that is beloved by the alternative youth of the small town. It's located in an old wooden house that once was probably the summer estate of an upper middle class family. Meaning that its original details are not as simple as those of an average town house and yet not as eloquent as a richer family would've wanted. Because of that, the ceilings are not decorated with stucco but are rather put together similarly to a parquet.

And the last picture of the batch. One thing I've liked about old houses is that there are sometimes different doors from different time eras. It's a quirky feature that one cannot see often and so I figured I, too, shall have a house like that.

That's it. The rest of the house is not furnished yet, since I need to go to bed now. Twas fun, though.
