EXPLORE THE VAST CAMPUS by @redhotchilisimblr

ID : DWould / CC Free / 64 x 64 / Library / 859K

  • Get set up in your new dorm room and meet your fellow students, maybe join a club or two! On the first floor of your dorm, you will find the common area where we keep recreational and gaming equipment that can be checked out from the hall desk, as well as a small kitchen for late night snacking.
  • Don’t forget to take note of the lecture halls inside the main building so you aren’t late on your first day. The Dean has a great view of the entire Campus from his office in the tower so make sure to be on your best behavior.
  • The library in the West wing of the main building boasts more than 3000 books to browse, 14 desktop computers, and a quiet space to spread out and do all that homework you’ve neglected!
  • The cafeteria in the East wing of the main building will keep you well fed. Keep an eye out for (hopefully) delicious experimental dishes from the Culinary Arts Kitchens upstairs.
  • Interested in the fine arts program? Take some time to explore your creativity in the Art District next door to the dorm. With it’s towering walls decorated with former student’s works of art, you’re sure to feel those creative juices flow and become inspired to create some of your own.
  • Across the Quad from your dorm is the Science District. Collect samples from the surrounding area to splice and grow in our gorgeous Greenhouse and terrace.
  • In your free time, ‘The White Lotus’ basement terrace is a gorgeous place to grab some caffiene and sweets. Later in the evening, The Green Leprechaun Bar will be your new stomping ground. Mingle with your fellow nightowls and blow off some steam! Shop at the official campus bookstore for all of your supply and swag needs.

STORYTELLING POSE PACK by @haziesims

Note :

Every items have been successfully playtested. For MAC users, you might encounters stuttering issues if your computer is running on an old version or with minimal requirements. For newest versions or PC users, no issues have been found.

Because the University is set as a lbrary, kids can possibly show up. It doesn’t happens a lot, but it could be annoying for some users. To prevent this, chose the lot trait “teens hangout”. Also, if you’ve Get Together, create a group of students and set up the campus as their favorite location. With both combine, you’ve a slim chance to have kids showing up, and if they do, they’ll leave pretty soon.

(Includes all the custom contents, the poses pack and the lot tray file)


We’re all so proud and happy to finally share our project. It was quite challenging but I think the wait finally worth it. Thanks for your support, your patience and ideas.

Once again, happy simming and feel free to tag us or use the hashtag “windenburguniversity” if you’re using our creations !  -Red.

Pharmacosiderite is a hydrated basic ferric arsenate.  Pharmacosiderite has an isometric crystal system, with yellowish-green, sharply defined cube crystals. When placed in ammonium solution, crystal changes colour to a distinguishing red. This secondary origin mineral is normally formed in the oxidation zones of iron-bearing sulphide deposits.The alteration of arsenopyrite, tennantite and other primary arsenates can form pharmacosiderite. It can also form from precipitation of hydrothermal solutions, but only rarely.

As a rule, Katniss Everdeen didn’t allow herself many things.

The first and last time she had asked for something, was the one thing she had ever regretted: to selfishly have her father with her on her birthday. It was a request shyly made, and gently denied, but he had wanted to surprise her. It had him going to work on a day he normally had off, which ended up being the day that he died. At eleven, watching her mother spiral into grief driven madness and her younger sister nearly starve to death, she blamed herself. From then on vowed to put her family first.

It became the way she lived. Everything she did and every choice she made was for the benefit of her younger sister. Not only did it make her happy, it was also very easy.

Once in awhile, something came up that made her choices not so black and white.

Sunrise mission to the Peak District.

Woke up at 3am to get into the Peaks and climbed to the summit of Win Hill just in time for sunrise. After some motorway closures it only meant i had 45 mins to park and get up there. So after an frantic climb and burning lungs i was meant by this amazing view. Had the entire place to myself for 3 hours to just wander, explore and get lost in the hills and forests. The perfect start to the day.

Yesterday was the 22nd anniversary of the abduction, torture, and murder of Jaswant Singh Khalra at the hands of Punjab Police.

Jaswant Singh Khalra was an ordinary human being like you and me, but what made him extraordinary was his commitment to social justice. During the Sikh genocide of the 80s and 90s, several Sikh youth were being disappeared in mass numbers by the police, so Jaswant Singh decided to take matters into his own hands and do some investigation.

He went around his district and collected forensic evidence at makeshift cremation pyres that were hastily constructed. He found the remains of more than 25,000 Sikhs on one district alone (Punjab has 22 districts, so you can imagine the impact of generational trauma on our elders).

He took these findings internationally, from the UN, to Amnesty (FYI, Amnesty is now blocked from doing any work in Punjab). His last stop on his tour was Canada. He submitted his findings to the Chretiens, but alas nothing was done. During his stay here, Jaswant Singh received a secret message from Punjab police saying “we killed 25,000, we can kill 25,001.”

Despite the death threat he decided to go back to Punjab to do more searching so he could give families closure, many of whom still believed that their children would be coming back home.

On September 6, 1995, Jaswant Singh Khalra was abducted in front of his house in Amritsar. He was tortured and killed by police, and his body was never returned to his family.

Jaswant Singh Khalra may have been martyred, but his activism still lives on. In April 2013 during their Montreal convention, the New Democratic Party of Canada unanimously voted to recognize Jaswant Singh as an international human rights advocate. Even to this day, Sikh youth remember his last speech that he made in Canada:

“There is a fable that when the Sun was setting for the first time, as it was completing its journey, light was decreasing and the signs of Darkness were appearing. It is said, lamentation was rife amongst the people that the Sun will set, Darkness will spread, no one will be able to see anything, and what will happen to us? Everybody was worried, but the Sun set. In order to show its strength, Darkness set its foot on the earth, but it is said thar far away, in some hut, one little Lamp lifted his head. It proclaimed, ‘I challenge the Darkness. If nothing else, then at least around myself, I will not let it settle. Around myself I will establish Light.’ And it is said, watching that one Lamp, in other huts other Lamps arose. And the world was amazed that these Lamps stopped Darkness from expanding, so that people could see. I believe, today when Darkness is trying to overwhelm Truth with full strength, a self-respecting Panjab, like a Lamp, is challenging this Darkness. And I pray to my Satguru, who identifies with Truth, to keep this light lit.”
