Mass Effect Andromeda - Golden Worlds

Full set.

This was an idea I have been obsessed with ever since finishing the game; loving space age travel art as much as I do, I couldn’t help but wonder about the Initiative’s tourism advertising revving up once viability was green across the board and Meridian was secured. Almost all of the formerly busted Golden Worlds, now fully habitable and relatively safe - what would the visual explosion of their marketing look like? So I went ahead and gave it a shot.

Post-ending travel ads for the Golden Worlds of the Heleus Cluster, with a bonus appearance from Aya. I released these in 2 installments, but I decided I wanted to look at them all together. Super proud of these.

Prints available!

Amalfi. 1934. Mario Borgoni.

27 ¼ x 39 ¼ in./69.3 x 99.6 cm

Located at the foot of Monte Cerreto in Salerno, Amalfi is the gem of the Italian coast. Here, Borgoni’s breathtaking depiction of its dramatic landscape makes it clear why the city was a favorite destination of the British Royal Family.


BUILD CHEATS I USE 

  1. bb.moveobjects: Enables you to place items off the grid. I use this along with the ‘ALT’ key when placing objects
  2. bb.showhiddenobjects: Shows debug items 
  3. bb.ignoregameplayunlocksentitlement: Unlocks career items
  4. ‘Shift + ]’ and ‘Shift + [’: Increase and decrease object sizes (I rarely use this cheat)

ROOM SHAPE:

  • I started off with a 4x4 room square room. Rooms look much nicer when they aren’t a complete square. To get rid of the square shape, I added the wardrobe from Get Together. 

BLANK WALLS  

  • I dislike having blank walls so I made sure to cover most of it with paintings and wall decor. I also like to ‘layer’ my wall decor by putting paintings and wall hangings on top of each other. At the end of the bed I added some plants to take up the remaining space. 

WALLS WITH WINDOWS 

  • I sometimes add wall decor to windows as well. I added post cards and a sign to the window to add decor to an area that would be blank. I don’t use curtains in most of my builds since I like the natural light that comes in. 
  • The wall to the left of the desk has a corkboard with post cards, a protest sign and a calendar I added. This helps the room feel more lived in. Behind the corkboard I added a poster which brings in color to that corner of the room. 
  • Although paint cans don’t belong in a bedroom, adding additional decor gives you more items to play with to make each room unique
  • Don’t be afraid to use the same items more than once. If you feel it’s too repetitive, use a different swatch.

FLOORS

  • You can choose to use a carpet but I decided to use the ‘messy’ clutter that came with the Parenthood GP. Next to the mirror I added some clutter to fill up the space. 
  • I don’t mind if certain items (like the mirror) aren’t functional because it’s likely another room will contain the same item that is functional. 

Decorating this took me around 10 minutes and my tips can be applied to larger rooms! Bedrooms don’t need to include typical bedroom items so play around with items you’ve never used before.
