Although the Singles 'family' comes homeless from the lot bin, I still found a piece of Maxis fug to use for their house.

Fug? Wut? )
I ended up with about 350 screenshots again. Eep. Fortunately, they span a few lots and not all of them are going to end up in entries. I have three Maxis families to update on, and then one long entry from Midgar.

Ajay Loner's place is being combined with the Ottomas' for the simple reason that there aren't all that many shots of it. Might as well try to condense my inbox spamming just a little.

To the pics! )
Okay, last message spam for tonight.
*cue bouncy sitcom cadence*

Wait, what?
To the final pics! ... for now. )
To start off, the Curioususeses now live across the rock from Nervous, 'cause I put an apartment lot up on their old spot on the mesa. Plus, Pascal's his best friend and it just shortens the commute for visits.

To even more pics! )

Moving on, we head next door to Olive along Big Honkin' Rock Court to the new abode of one Nervous Subject.

Holy crap, did I really finish four of these things in the last two night!? Ugh. Apologies in advance for the message spamming, but it'll be easier to break these up by family, rather than try for one hundred-shot-long post.

Not a particularly elegant name, I know. I haven't thought of a better one yet. What a megahood is, for the uninitiated, is a neighborhood containing all of Maxis' pre-loaded neighborhoods together, so that every Maxis-made sim and family can interact.

The version I have contains all of the neighborhoods up to Belladonna Cove, from Apartment Life. I like the idea of having an outside-character-free environment once in a while. Especially when I'm considering trying out goofy things that dignity and actual fondness for a given character would prevent me from ever doing to them. With many a Maxis sim, I don't have this hang up. In Midgar, I want the world to appear accurate to its inspirations. In the megahood, I can do whatever feels appropriate, even if it involves neon yellow and gorilla suit.

Maxis content is also fun for my inner architect. To be blunt, ninety-five percent of Maxis houses roundly suck. They're always too large and contain too damn much wasted space. Sometimes, I really hope these houses and community lots are made so cumbersome to encourage players to root around with the tools and catalogs and make them better.

To the First Victims! )
Part one, because there are enough clean shots to break this into two and only mature-lock the second half.

To the pics! )
... 'cause I have a whooole bunch of pics to inflict on you.

All Settled? Good, Good... )
