Friendship Cove

If you’re wondering why I haven’t posted many lots lately, its because I have been working on a bigger project with the folks at N99. A medium sized world with lots for all the EPs up to Island Paradise.

This New Englandy beach town was created in the spirit of generosity that sustains the Sims Community. No Sim is an island, or no one sims as an island, something like that. Its takes all of us to make this game work.

Friendship Cove was inspired by and uses the height map of Castaway Cove made by Cameranutz II at Sims Crossing.

Julia at N99 loved Castaway Cove from its very beginning, but with 10 EP’s the game has outgrown that tiny world. So we at N99 conspired together to design and create a new Castaway Cove.

We renamed it Friendship Cove in honor of the thing that keeps us simming year after year, EP after EP 🙂 So while Trystiane did the CAW work, the spirit and beauty of this world comes from all the great ladies at N99! A special shout out to Allears23 who made the starter residential houses in the hood, Max who remade her Colorbox Townhouse Shops cc-free for us, Grammycat who did the most detailed playtesting. Rose and Nyx provided technical and moral support to the CAWer. Have fun! Now for the pic spam

Here are the CAW Files if you want them. Feel free to do whatever you want with the world, just don’t make someone pay for anything related to it.

The “Decorate and Landscape my Sim House” Festival!

I am trying to buy a house.  So I thought, what does a postmodern girl do at a time like this?  Of course! She invites her internet friends to a “Decorate and Landscape my Sim House” Festival!

So, I went in game, built my house and packaged it up for you to download 🙂

This little Cape Cod is built to be as close as possible to the house I am about to move into.

Now, while I love building and decorating in the Sims, in real life I have terrible taste.

Please help me decorate my home by decorating and landscaping this lot and sharing your pictures with me in this thread!

All participants will receive a small gift from me in return, either an item from the store or a custom lot that you’ve been dying to have but don’t have the patience to make yourself. Or an Internet Hug if you own everything and need nothing for your world.

(Or, I guess I could offer a free sociology lecture if your into that kind of thing)

The Rules:  Decorate and Landscape the Lot in any way, but don’t move or recolor anything that is already placed (except for the lights which are only there so you can see what you are doing :lol ).  You can paint or wallpaper the interior walls, but not the floors or the exterior.  No moving or changing the windows and doors.  You can use cc or no cc, whatever you like.  Post pics in this thread at the forum I hang out at, Neighborhood 99.  You can link to the lot if you want to make it available for download (but that is not required).

My friend Rose asked for some more guidance as to who will be living there. It is me and Hubby and 3 cats. We definitely need an office. The third room can be whatever you feel like making, but we will probably make it a guest room. Good luck finding room for the litter boxes You can just stick them outside if you need to.

Sim-Karen: Good, Friendly, Bookworm, Over-Emotional, Genius
Sim-Rodouane: Charismatic, Ambitious, Athletic, Cat Lover, Absent-Minded

Submit by April 30 (my estimated closing date) if you want a material gift.

Here is the lot as a sims3pack
