Hello Friends!

Over five years ago I uploaded the first version of Rockford, and over two years ago I remodeled it and uploaded it again. I am back with one final remodel, and the home is bigger and better than ever! There isn't much to say about it other than I was a little bored at home for a few weeks this November/December, so I decided to give this place one last re-vamp. I really hope you like it!

Differences include an expanded floor plan, rearrangement of the first floor, addition of several new bedrooms and bathrooms as well as a whole new third floor, a new larger yard, and an added guest house with attached bathroom. The only things that hasn't changed much is the living room with the piano (that room remains untouched from the last version except for a new rug and the fireplace color being updated), a few wallpapers throughout, and the location of two bedrooms on the left side of the house. All-in-all it was a pretty extensive remodel that took me many hours to complete, but I really really love it.

Because the house was built on a slope I had difficulty getting the lot realigned after making changes. I had to change the height of the foundation many times, which required me to also remove the flooring on the second and third floors multiple times AND reroof the place. It was quite annoying, but worth it. The house was playtested and there doesn’t appear to be any more issues on my end, but just know there could be a few routing issues because of the constrainfloorelevation cheat. I don't think it's an issue, but keep that in mind just in case. I basically had to remove all the second and third floor, take everything out that had already been placed, delete the floor, level it all, put the floor back in, re-place all the items for each bedrooms and repaint each ceiling multiple times. It was so great and not time consuming at all; I can't wait to do it again (haha).

Anyway -

This will likely be my final home for The Sims 3. I said this last year when I uploaded my Legacy Lane houses, then I went ahead and uploaded two more Sims 3 houses afterword's, but I seriously don't see myself uploading for Sims 3 again. I love the game with all my heart, but I don't often play it anymore. I can't 100 million percent guarantee this will be my final Sims 3 home forever and ever, but I'm fairly certain it is. We'll see, though. Thanks for sticking around with me and my Sims 3 homes, good and bad, for the last five-and-a-half years. I love you.

Thanks bro. I have playtested it with my own 16 Sims household and it works perfectly especially when placed in Legacy Island.

I love The Sims 4 but I must say I always preferred The Sims 2 and The Sims 3 for extended periods of Simming.

I can confirm this final version of The Rockford is perfect.

Cheers bro!

Wow. Amazing! It's perfect for my Victorian world. I love the colour choices and the architectural detail. I can't wait to re-model (de-model) it to be historically accurate (the kitchen especially). How would you feel about me sharing it when I've finished (either with the Sims community or just you, no pressure)?

I would love to see it! This is supposed to be a custom-built home for a specific family of mine so I wasn’t concerned with making it historically accurate, but there are Gilded Age-influences throughout. So long as I’m tagged and or/credited in some way wherever you share it, I have no problems with whatever you do! I’m exited to see changes! -Dillyn
