By order of appearance
All of the steampunk village builds were hers which I personally thought cooled the coolest with the star-like “flash.”
The next flash is a neighborhood from my first rotation neighborhood Keeping Up with the Joneses. The houses were placed several years ago but I know at least a few if not all are her builds.
The next flash is a wedding venue I built myself for one of my stories with this cute little house next to it. Incidentally, I loved this house so much I added it to the newer neighborhood in Newcrest. I figured Aimee and/or Zion saw the house and liked it.
After that, we started flashes in the desert with the Flint-Hall family. The first of which was my Murkland save. All of the lots were built by Brenna but this one is the most visible from their view.
After the standard Maxis flash is a flash of modern homes again from my Robinson’s save. I really have no clue. They may be mentioned in the chapters I added them but as there are around 70 chapters that would be a lot of searching.
The next flash is of my save I set up for the alien world for my Xenophilia challenge. The entire map of Oasis Springs in that save is her awesome alien houses.
The first flash with the Mesner’s in Windenburg I
I have two of his builds in the flashes. The first was this movie park in Windenburg. The second was his Cirque Du Clown Diner in Newcrest.
The second Newcrest flash is a police station from my Heart & Soul Legacy where Amyra would meet with the detective for her ghost investigations. No clue who built it. Next was a neighborhood full of my drifter houses.
I was trying to decide what to do last. Newcrest isn’t very populated in any of my saves especially that neighborhood. Looking through the gallery I saw a few cool builds and it occurred to me that most of the world lots were fairly normal.
These two houses together gave a really cool “savage” type effect.
I put the no props mod back in so there were no background buildings and I have to say this was one of my favorites.
And finally, from part 2, we have the amazing throne room. I only removed a few things and changed the floor tile color. Not because I didn’t like them but because they’re the ones from the Hensley’s house!
The first shown is the same of Kaichen’s that’s above which is now the Sand’s house. I did change quite a bit to make it fit in the with neighborhood aesthetic. Plus, I was extremely low on funds.
Next is this house which the Crows now live. I changed a lot more in this one. Pretty much the only thing I kept was the exterior house shape.
I didn’t notice until just now that I didn’t use the original version of this house. I have no idea what rafkeheuvelmans changed if anything. This is the Mesner’s house and despite removing practically everything they barely could afford beds and such since it was a more expensive house. I actually found it in my library I have no clue when I’d downloaded it but it’s absolutely perfect.
In this case, I did realize it wasn’t the original poster. And I went through SimmieSweetness’ catalog at least 5 times. I could not find it. I found a few that were very similar though. I can only guess that Joegebbia did a lot of renovating (which is mentioned in the description) including the upstairs room that sold me on this house. I did a lot of knocking walls out in this one mostly. I’m not a fan of having a bunch of small rooms in the main family spaces. This is the Hensley’s new home.
I was trying very hard not to use modern homes in Willow Creek but this house is just amazing and I couldn’t resist. I didn’t change a whole lot other than the fact it was extremely lavish which doesn’t fit the Burke-Fox household at all. I did knock out a bathroom to make the studio space larger and changed one of the roofs that was cutting horribly into a little attic space.
Keep in mind that in ALL of these houses I had to remove practically everything in order for the sims to be able to afford them. It’s not an insult to anyone. I’m just terrible at building the outsides of houses. I quite enjoy the insides and sometimes see a different vision that suits my current family structure. The most challenging build was the Crow’s because it was built diagonally.
I went back and forth with myself over the decision to remove the previous spa. Don’t get me wrong it was beautiful. It just really didn’t fit in especially next to the quaint little restaurant. Even this one is a bit lavish but it had every aspect I wanted. I did add 2 small bar areas to accommodate Coolspear’s mod which, for whatever reason, sends 3 mixologists to spa lots. I did remove a sauna and put in a few tubs for mudbaths and such since there were none.
This lot was a diamond in the rough. Hardly any downloads and if I hadn’t
Another little gem. I was just in awe of this quaint lot. It’s tagged as a cafe and does have a cute little cafe in one of the buildings but it’s so much more.
For visual effect, I used Coolspear’s Sim Teleportation System discs for the “portable teleporter” that Bea and Remmy had created. While they may not actually allow sims to travel between worlds they do allow them to travel long distances with a single step. These are the same I use in some Stratus Burne chapters although those do not have the lights. I thought it prudent to mention that the ones I have in Straus Burne are there for my own entertainment and as far as the story goes don’t technically exist. But then again, there are probably several things I do or say that have nothing to do with the story since it’s usually not very pertinent to the actual play.
