View Full Version : Unfurnished Maxis only 3 bedroom 3 bath work in progress
9th Aug 2010, 3:59 AM
Hello, I'm posting my first house I've made here for some feedback.
I'd like to improve this in any way I can, especially color choices and landscaping, but I'm trying to keep everything by Maxis, so no custom content. It's purposely unfurnished, but if I need to add anything like lights or windows, tell me. Also, if it would be better furnished, tell me that too.

In the pic of the study, is it just me or is the floor is higher than its meant to be? Because from what I see, the floor seems to be nearly halfway up the doors compared to the other rooms!
You should play around with the terrian paint too. Try using some mud or dirt terrain paint and paint it lightly under the flowers and trees. Blending different terrain paints gives a nicer effect too. And maybe put a nice little fenceing and a gate around the gardening area, where the sprinklers are. :)

Yes, the study floor needs fixed.
The roof should be messed with, it looks odd right now. It looks odd from the front as well, like there are two separate houses.

Did you fill the Study with the stage tool? The floor does look raised. Also, it looks like you used the game's auto-roofing feature. If so, I would try sculpting your own roof with the different roof type pieces.

Thanks for the ideas, Guysim. I didn't pay that much attention to the garden.
And Vampire of Death, I didn't even think about how it would look as two houses! Thanks for pointing that out.
MSD, it looks like you've caught me, lol. I tried to get away with Auto Roof and I don't think I fully understood the use of the stage tool. The website I got the floorplan from had all those stairs, so I was trying to match it as closely as I could. I thought it was alright because Sims can still use the doors as normal.
Other than some garden furnishings/decor, a better roof, and removal of the stage, it looks good right? Thanks for the feedback so far.

I would suggest to use some stone or masonry on the foudation part of the outer walls, it would look more realistic. Also the doors which open outside should be more entrance-type doors, these look typically interior doors to me.
