Dilemma - Starting a New Game

Post by Metjuw on Tue 11 Sep 2012, 19:57

Hello everyone and welcome to my thread..

I just started playing The Sims 3 again after being inactive for quite a while.. Now I'm a having a dilemma on which lot to go into with my new Sim!

My Sim will be an artist/sculpture/inventor.

First off I am going to show you some screenshots of the two lots which I had found in Hidden Springs which I really like but don't know which one would suit me most.

Let's get on with the Screenshots:


Household Funds: §16,500

House 1

Handcrafted Masterpiece
9 Cottenwood Ct.
Size: 30x30

Unfurnished Price: §13,279
Furnished Price: §15,814


House 1 - Outdoor View





House 1 - Indoor View




House 2

Gysy Hideaway
19 Willow Lane
Size: 30x39

Unfurnished Price: §14,069
Furnished Price: §16,064


House 2 - Outdoor View




House 2 - First Floor View





House 2 - Ground Floor View




After viewing the above screenshots, any feedback or suggestions as regards to which would suit my Jack Of All Trades sim?! Smile

Hello,

I think house 2 has better opportunities to place the needed equipment like the sculpting station and inventor workbench. The upstairs balcony is ideal for an easel.

Yeah I thought about House 2, but I wanted to see if it would be cost efficient money wise, since I don't like the outdoor of the house and I would need to do it from scratch and also to upgrade some indoor equipment. Razz Thanks for the feedback though!

P.S - Thanks Admin for fixing my links! Very Happy

You don't need that tv, since you can use painting for fun and this one has a chance for a bad moodlet and not too many channels anyway.
Since your sim is single, you can loose the double bed for now and get a -better- single bed. And you don't really need a bathroom sink, so you could loose that too.
Once your sim starts painting, you should be able to start making money fast enough, especially if he also has the "born salesman" trait. You should be able to upgrade the house inside and out within a couple of sim days.

Will take those suggestions into consideration, thanks again! Smile
