Furnished vs. Un-Furnished

Date Posted: 14th Jan 2007 at 1:36 AM

In the lots and housing department there has always been a furnished vs. unfurnished debate. I decided I would give my view and reasons for uploading furnished lots.

If you upload a furnished lot then the dowloader can just get in the lot and start palying immediatly without spending an hour doing everything. Besides if you really don't like the way the home is done than you can just use control/shift to get rid of walls and carpeting and just grab anything and delete. It is easier to undo than to do. If you just upload blank walls and floors it could be hard for the downloader to figure out what room is which and to figure out what configuration would work best. Plus with the size of my homes it would take a very long time to paint, floor, and furnish. I usually take around two hours painting, carpetting, and furnishing. And I don't think many poeple want to spend that kind of time. I've also been told that I'm very good at furnishing with paying attention to detail, so why let something I'm good at go to waist?

That's all I have to say about that. However it is only my opinion.

Merry Christmas!

Date Posted: 25th Dec 2006 at 5:49 AM

Merry Christams yall! Sorry I couldn't get in a Christmas lot. School cut three days out of my vacation because of finals, and I only had four days to Christmas shop! So there really wasn't enough time to work on my lot. However I do have over a week after Christmas so I will at least be able to get in a few Winter lots since Winter technically just started.

Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year yall!

What I'm working on...

Date Posted: 3rd Dec 2006 at 1:51 AM

I had originally planned to have some really nice lux dorms in by this weekend, but with school I've lately had no time to work. So my plan is hopefully by tommorrow morning or Monday morning have a small starter, the following week have a really nice one story (the floorplan is awesome!) Then over the Christmas break upload my luxury dorms (that aren't quite dorms really ) So those are the plans, can't wait to have another download on the site!

Happenings...

Currently I just started on my new lot that is more in my classic luxurious style. It is a 4 bedroom and 3-4 bathroom. Like I did with the requested home I will have two elevations available for different tastes. While the first elevation will still be pretty posh the second will be to with a few extra features.

I'm not sure when I'll finish it however, as I need to work on a Geography project due Friday and of course schooling always comes first. So hopefully you might be able to expect the home by next Sunday or Monday.

Pets Pets Pets!!!

Date Posted: 24th Oct 2006 at 4:15 AM

Yup, I just got the Pets EP! Yippee, so maybe I'll upload a couple I'm not sure yet. However unfortuanetly for a few of yall I'm sure, my new homes will now require the Pets EP. But it may actually be possible to download a lot that requires pets since all it adds are objects and pets. So all that should happen is you won't get a few objects. So if someone could test that out on some of the existing ones that would answer that.

You can look forword to my next lot by the end of the week!

The Meaning of My Name Reveiled!

Date Posted: 18th Oct 2006 at 12:47 AM

Yes that's right folks,I shall reveil the meaning of my strange name! What is the meaning you ask? Is it your real name? Does it have significant meaning? Is really special and sacred? Is it foreign? Are you ever gonna stop blabbing and get on with it? Yes...

Well the day I was getting my account I was totally oblivious at what my name should be. I typed "General" and was going to put "Obvious" or something like that. But I thought that wasn't very original. So I closed my eyes with one hand and used the other to peck some letters and that's what came up. So I capitalized the first "O" and hit the submit button at the bottom. So in case you're wondering my real name is Nathaniel, however I'll go by Nathan or Nate. Like it says in my profile I have been born and raised here in San Antonio, TX. If you're going to respond to me in a post just say "G-O" or "General" Well now you know!

FAQ on the Things I Do V.2

Date Posted: 15th Sep 2006 at 1:43 AM

I've decided to update this entry with more info...
Q-Why do you make most of your garages sideways?
A-It's not just because it's cool. The reason is that Maxis did a horrible job when they made the garages, they made them much to big and bulky. Because of that when you have a garage even a single car garage they can take alot away from your home, no matter how much you dress up that driveway. So by turning it sideways it helps hide it and bring out the home and it's beauty, even when you leave it exposed sideways it still looks better because you can still make the driveway smaller and leave more room for llandscaping.
Q-What's with all the two story stuff?
A-It's cool, and when you have one sim upstairs you can still keep an eye on the other that's down in the other rooms to make sure they don't get in trouble.
Q-What's the point of the living room since it's just a couple sofas and decor?
A-The purpose is to have a place to talk with guests from the neighborhood that drop by. Talking in the family room, most guests will be distracted by the T.V. and will watch more T.V. than talk. So what you do is invite your guests to the living room they'll focus on chatting and building up a reelationship and will also get an enviroment boost by the extra amount of decor.
Q-what is the point of a dual Staircase?
A-It is because sometimes when you send two sims up at once they can get frustrated because someone is going up the stairs, and if you don't notice that there not doing what you asked them to do they can get in trouble. So with two staircases that shouldn't be a problem.
Q-What's the point of a second or third staircase in another room?
The point is very logical and handy. This is more in my big homes of course, but it is so that sims don't have to walk all the way to the foyer to get upstairs. This will save precious time.
Q-What is a Conservatory?
A-A conservatory is a private room for the family, much like a parlor in the 1800's. I set my conservatories up with creative items such as a grand piano or eisel.
Q-Why are there so many freakin lights!?
A-It has nothing to do with making my homes better. It's because my screen is very dark and it's very difficult for me to see. So I add lights everywhere so I can.

That's all for now. In time there will most likely be another FAQ entry.

Last home in the series...

Date Posted: 12th Sep 2006 at 4:03 AM

I have just designed my next & last home in my series. It is a very beautiful home with a completly original floorplan. It has all the features I'm known more plus a few more. The media room will be a little more decorative, and I'm currently shopping for some new couches for my sitting room in the Master Suite. Currently it's designed as a four bedroom, but that may change durring build mode to a five bedroom. I've also put into the design a few walk-in-closets. I'm also shopping for new wall covering so I'm not always using that popular grey masonry. I hope you enjoy the new home when it comes out towards the end of the week. I know I will enjoy building it!

Family Drama

Date Posted: 1st Sep 2006 at 9:46 PM

Well on Monday morning my Dad went into the hospital due to a heart attack. He felt a pain in his throght which is actually a rare symptom that there will be a heart attack. So he pulled over and actually called 911, which is very out of character. He went into the ER, and after getting a stint, he is slowly but surely getting better. He just came home this morning and is now resting and taking time off of work. My family and I just thank God that he called when he did. So now that my Dad's back home, and I'm not going to the hospital every day right after school I'll be able to start working on my lots. I'm currently working on a home that is like a little brother to The Boerne. It's coming out quite nicely and I can't wait to do that backyard and landscaping so I can upload it. I've decided to scratch the whole bachelor pad series and do something different. I'm thinking after my next home I'll do another community lot. But I still haven't been able to put it on to graph paper, so it'll be a little while.
