I made these paintings of The country My Father was born in.
It is a beautiful place to be in. The people there are full of life, and tradition.
Most of the places are very old, and full of knowledge.

The paintings I used are:
Sims city at night.

These can be used with all versions of the game.

Hi! It's nice to see that someone has finally put up some pictures from my country! I can't recolour for the life of me, and am only too glad to find your work. I have many pictures, taken from different places in the country, and i believe some of the might look very nice in a game picture. If you are interested just say so and i will send them to you.

I'm not patriotic or nationalist... but would be better if you correct the title of this thread, no?
#8 Old 12th Jan 2006 at 5:54 PM
I'm not particularly nationalist too, but I have to say Thank You.
It's really nice to see my country up there. I made some Portuguese ethnical skins for the sims, but it feels kind of lonely, never seeing anything from our home country

When all Courage is necessary, all Hope is justified!
