Florentin

The thylacine, more popularly known as the Tasmanian tiger, was an apex predator in Australia and Tasmania before its extinction in the early 20th century. Despite its superficial resemblance to a large dog, the thylacine was actually a marsupial, with no relation to canines The thylacine also featured an abdominal pouch similar to a kangaroo’s.

The last captive Tasmania Tiger, which was later referred to as ‘Benjamin’, spent several years behind bars in the Hobart zoo after being caught in the Florentine Valley in 1933. Its gender still a mystery, the animal died three years later on September 7, believed to be as a result of neglect. It was locked out of its sheltered sleeping quarters and died due to the exposure of an extremely cold Tasmanian night. The above is the animals final footage. (Source)

Nice things Italians say

(or, a random list of italian expressions that i felt like sharing with the world)

Se son rose fioriranno.” (literally, “If it’s roses, they will bloom.”) It’s usually used to calm down someone (or even oneself) who’s anxious about a certain situation (for instance going on a date), and it means that if something is bound to happen, it will, and hence that there’s no use being nervous.

Non s'ha da fare.” It means “it’s not to be done”/“it’s not to happen”. Although this construct is strictly typical of the Florentine dialect, this fixed expression has become widely used in the Italian language after one of the most famous scenes in Alessandro Manzoni’s I Promessi Sposi (The Betrothed), in the line “Questo matrimonio non s'ha da fare, né domani, né mai.” (“This wedding is not to be celebrated, not tomorrow, nor ever.”)

Hai scoperto l'acqua calda.” (literally “You have discovered hot water.”) Used to ironise about someone’s obvious remark by calling it a revolutionary discovery.

Morto un papa, se ne fa un altro.” (literally, “Once a pope dies, another one is elected.”) It’s usually used after the end of a relationship and it means that once you lose a lover, you just find another one. It can also be used in other situations with an equivalent meaning.

Una volta ogni morte di papa.” It literally means “Once every pope’s death” and it’s used as an informal synonym for “very rarely”. (e.g. “Mi ammalo una volta ogni morte di papa.” -> “I get sick very rarely.”)

La mamma è sempre la mamma.” It means “Mum will always be mum.” and it’s just an expression to state how your mum will always be there for you and will always be your home.

Che pizza!” It literally translates “What a pizza!” but it has the same meaning as the English “Nuts!” (e.g. “Piove.” “Che pizza!” -> “It’s raining.” “Nuts!”). In the same way, the word “pizza” can be used as an adjective to describe an annoyingly boring person (e.g. “Sei una pizza, non vuoi mai fare nulla.” -> “You’re so boring, you never want to do anything”).

The Sims 4 -  La Nautique

I know lots of people liked my renovation of the Barnes’ house, so I thought it would be fun to try to remake it without any custom content to share it with you. 

And as a bonus, here is a cute family photo of the Barnes !


Download the tray files : for the house.

Or use the tag #rope or my Origin  ID simsontherope to find it on the gallery !

If you like my creations, feel free to buy me a coffee (and a croissant if you can :D)

WHAT’S GOOD, IT’S YA BOY

Sooo Ferris now has a somewhat finalized design

I’m thinking of perhaps making a separate blog for him?? idk. But anyways, I say “somewhat” finalized because he has a seasonal appearance. So he’ll look different and have different colors for summer, winter, and spring. This is what he looks like for autumn, since it’s that time of year! 

Ferris is a nature spirit, and aside from his seasonal forms, he has an additional two forms - a Manticore form, and stronger Dragon form known as the “Prince of Dragonflies.” He is unable to return to/transform into his Dragon form for the time being, as it requires a lot of energy.

Also, when he’s embarrassed or grateful, flowers will bloom in his hair, along his shoulders, and back. He currently works with Veronica at her Flower Boutique.

More info. will come later when I post his other seasonal designs.
