Cat’s Corner

Built where Catarina Lynx’s house was in Brindleton Bay, Cat’s Corner is the place for coffee, croissants, book-shopping, surfing the internet, grabbing an ice cream cone, and conversing with the locals.

I used the Cafe venue designation because I like the variety of activities patrons usually engage in - ordering coffee and pastries, reading books, using the computers, chatting, etc. However in my playtesting, it seems they mostly just wanted to congregate around the espresso machine. XD I did see Sims use the computers, but it was rare. However, if you want Sims to venture elsewhere onto the lot for RP or story purposes, you could try deleting the espresso machine for awhile. (Although you might want to place it again before you leave, otherwise the game will consider the venue “incomplete” and you may not get any visitors at all next time.)

There are more pics in the Cat’s Corner tag.

Writer’s Cottage

My first house for Brindleton Bay! I’ve spent the last 20 hours building and decorating and playtesting this house (with a little sleep thrown in, too). It was built for two Sims by Cinderellimouse - Tom Dale and his dog Max. He’s a former big city cop who moved out to the seaside to start a career as a crime novelist. Luckily he found this quaint little cottage by the beach to rent. Maybe it’ll come in handy for your Sims, too.

Mid Mod Ranch V2

This is a CC-free and slightly updated version of my Mid Mod Ranch, which I edited for my Maristella project. Even though I added some new decor, I tried to keep it to only a few packs (in fact, there are no stuff packs required for this build - just the Expansion Packs and a few of the Game Packs). I also added a basement utility room so that you can add more space if you want.

The house has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, and it was decorated with YA roommates in mind, so it doesn’t have any children’s bedrooms. Also I made the landscaping less desert-y and more lush. But as with all my builds, please feel free to modify/redecorate as you see fit!

The Mini Dream Store
I can’t guarantee you six cuties, but I can definitely guarantee your own
mini Dream Store! With a bunch of interactive features for you to
discover, the Dream Store changes over the course of the day, almost
like an abstract clock.

My Dream Store project is finally finished! Here are some features:

  • it‘s a clock - well, sort of. It displays the hour of the day on the blackboard, and something happens every minute (every minute)
  • cute lil interactive features, such as the door opening, lights turning on/off, etc.
  • a different storefront animation depending on the time of day
  • and a lil surprise: our 6 favourite boys, hidden somewhere in the store!

But here’s the best part: everyone can have their own Dream Store! You can download it as an applet for your computer, and for those of you wary about files downloaded from the Internet, don‘t worry! It doesn‘t require you to install anything!

Here’s the Google Drive link. There are three versions: Mac, Windows 64 bit, and Windows 32 bit. Linux available too - message me! If you don’t have Java already installed (which is highly unlikely) then fret not! Java is included in the applet, and as said before, you don‘t need to install anything.* Under the cut are more instructions if needed.

This is my very first interactive art project, but if it goes well, I definitely intend on making more! It was a lot of fun and the prospect of sharing it with all of you makes it so much better! Please let me know if you like it and how far this lil Dream Store gets around the world!

ah, one more thing: PLEASE PLEASE DON’T REDISTRIBUTE THIS! I spent weeks on it and all the art is my own. You‘re welcome to fiddle with the code but please give me credit. I’m 100% down to collaborate with anyone!

Excerpt of NieR Automata’s Final Promotional Event Interview

About YoRHa 1.2 and 1.0 Stage Play

Yoko Taro: Maybe you’ll be surprised. I had to write the script, but I haven’t written a line yet [as the time of interview] . But we have decided the genre and “the feels” of the story.

Saito: I think we opened the character casting to soon

Yoko Taro: There’s a limit on the number of characters on stage. After deciding that, we can proceed on making the skeleton of the story. We must decide the cast and the necessary character first. We must think about how many events played on 90 minutes to 120 minutes duration.

Saito: It maybe close to making a condensed game. It’s interesting too seeing Yoko Taro’s reaction on the audition.

Yoko Taro: The audition was painful. It was painful to choose among the people. For example, if you are a voice actor, I will decide the voice by just listening to the sample. But it is hard for me to decide and compare the voice with their body and appearance for the stage play.

About Doujinshi (Fan made Art, Story, or other stuffs)

Saito: We heard that some fans are interested in the parody of NieR.

Yoko Taro: The highschool version of NieR is really messed up. I understand that people want a NieR / Drakengard game with highschool setting, I personally made a parody of it last time [referring to Drakengard 4 High School Parody]. I wonder if fans should do it by themselves now.

Saito: It’s not official.

Yoko Taro: If it’s possible please make a fanzine about NieR Automata in highschool girl version.

Saito: For example, I think we are happy with a fan art of 2B and 9S that enjoy shopping together with holding hands.

Yoko Taro: Doesn’t it feels so good looking at it? I wish fans can make things I can’t write anyway. Expanding the world and the characters you love. Because there are times when it’s easier to understand that “she is such a character” by watching fan art.
With such a persuasive power, I think that it will become known as “a fact” in other fans’ mind. With such expressive power, I am happy to give answers and commentary to people who make the art

Saito: Thankfully, the amount of the fan art is really large. When Yoko Taro asked to give 2B Ass Art on a ZIP File, it was so popular even on the overseas.

Yoko Taro: I did not expect the huge number of fan art and cosplay at all. Maybe this is the power of Akihiko Yoshida’s Character Design

Saito: It’s a part of Akihiko Yoshida’s plan (Laugh)

Final Message on NieR Automata Final Promotional Event Interview

Saito:  I think that it’s better if you call the voice actor to NieR event in the future, but at that time I will follow Yoko Taro to eat delicious food. I know that now NieR has many fans that supported us. I hope for your supports in the future too.

Yoko Taro: I think that NieR Automata hit more than expected. It was a happy news to us, the developer, and also a good news for fans who supported it. 
So, do not defile the history of NieR anymore, I would like to stop the history of NieR right here. I would like to end the series in “a great flame”. Please write this as the last message from me. Well then, everyone, good-bye.

Saito: But you still do anything for the money?

Yoko Taro: I’ll do everything to get the money (Laugh)

🎃✧ HAPPY SIMBLREEN! ✧🎃

10 BASE SIMS

I have been meaning to go through my sim bin 5ever. These sims (most of them anyway) are all old versions of my characters that ended up sitting in my bin after I remade them. For example, #2 & 3 are old versions of my character Georgie before I settled on a final version for her. These were supposed to be released as my 2800 follower milestone before I restarted my blog but I never got around to it, then again when I restarted and hit 100. BUT BETTER LATE THAN NEVER, RIGHT?! I hope you all can enjoy them and put them to some kind of use since they’ve been collecting dust for quite a while now and I feel bad just deleting them agajhd. ╮(╯▽╰)╭

FEW THINGS TO KNOW:

✧ Available in .sim only
✧ You have the option to download your preferred base sim by its corresponding number or all bases in a zip file
✧ All CC was removed for these pictures and that’s how they come, they’re wearing only a default skin & default contacts, as well as lashes
✧ Sims #1 & #4 were originally made from bases by @25pxls & @plumblobs, #4 was based off Priyanka Chopra and it is possible for her to look as such (see here)

🎃 TERMS OF USE

✧ Do NOT claim as your own or redistribute
✧ No paysites
✧ Use them however you want, for whatever you want
✧ Tag @pixldust, I’d love to see what you do with them!

Choices Backgrounds

This has been requested by @luxurylives. Here’s a teaser :p

The rest are under the cut. I only posted the ones I liked so if there’s anything missing, it either means that I don’t have it or I don’t like it enough to post.
NOTE:
None of these pictures belongs to me. NONE. I simple took screenshots from the game then assembled them with Fireworks. Lots of work was done to recreate them. All rights belong to Pixelberry. 
You are free to use anything without credits (scroll down for the Zip file!)
