Surprise CC time! Today I bring 2 career rewards + a debug decor item from Ambitions, converted to functional dollhouses! Now your sim kids (and adults) can play with a traditional manor, a modern skyscraper or a spoopy graveyard!

This project was a bit more challenging to do since they all had some kind of issue: the graveyard and tower meshes were facing a weird way, and Sims would clip through the manor. It’s been a while since I’ve touched these, but I do remember rotating the meshes for the first two, as well as moving the slots a bit behind and making the tower recolorable.

Issue: the sims’ hands will float in midair where they would normally place their hands on the dollhouse, but they don’t do it too often and you could chalk it up to them reaching out if you’re taking screenshots :)

Details:

+ They don’t require Ambitions and won’t interfere with the career rewards if you do have Ambitions.
+ Up to 2 Sims can play at the same time.
+ They all cost $250 and you can find them under Kids \ Toys.
+ The tower and manor are recolorable (4 channels), the graveyard isn’t.

WIZARDING SCHOOLS AROUND THE WORLD: BEIJING

Out of all of the international wizarding schools, the Beijing Institute for Witches and Wizards boasts perhaps the most complicated collection of portkeys, and hidden entrances. While it had become incredibly difficult to hide a school in such a densely populated city, the wizarding community has successfully reconstructed the institute to be integrated with both the ancient and modern parts of the city. Unplottable buildings have been built between boutiques in a number of Beijing’s hutongs that can only be accessed by asking for the correct meal items from the right food vendor, modern skyscrapers have been erected in city centre that can only be accessed by portkey or hidden entrances, large hidden courtyards have been laid out in lush parks that can only be accessed by passing through the right columns in the right gallery. The decision to distribute sections of the school around the city had been unanimously agreed upon by the students, who are relishing the opportunity to push their magical potential in new environments. If the invisibility booster installed on enchanted bicycles was to backfire, muggles would be treated to a brilliant vision of colourful bikes crisscrossing the sky.

I lay awake in my bed, staring up at the surface of my ceiling. My soft, comfortable bed that has been there for me from all those terrible, stressful years of High School up until now. The only difference being; my bed used to be able to comfort me. My mind is in clusters, deep exhausting clusters. How- Why- Who- 

But it was all pointless. I had no clue. All I knew was that I had an appointment with Oh Sehun, personal assistant to the CEO of Huang Co, a incredibly big company in the country.
