Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
NOTE. I TAKE REQUESTS, THAT IS HOW THIS HOUSE EXISTS

Introduction

So, I got a request to do a reproduction of the Cullen's home in the Twilight Movie/s. The request was from cathy_supasta. So, 1 request, 2 failed attempts and 1 good attempt later, I present to you the Cullen's home or the Hoke House as it is named in real life.

This is the milestone home that celebrates:
- Over 5000 Downloads
- Over 500 Thanks
- The end of the Stone and Stucco Blvd series
- My first complete request home

So, celebrate with me if you are a fan of my work, the milestones that we have all reached. Now we begin the next set that is destined for greatness. :p

This set will inlude 7 Homes and 2 Community Lots. 4 of the homes will be beach homes, 3 suburban. One Community lot will be suburban and the other beach.

The first home, which I am starting on right now is called Sea Breeze. I will post pics of it in my Journal, so make sure to look there. Also, you can view the colour sets for the beach homes as a picture in my journal. Comment on what you think of it.

Onto the house.

The Tour

--

The home, or at least the front of it is as close to the image as I could get, and I think that I will do another version when some expansions are released and more items become available. I think that it is quite accurate, but the back is purely imagination and creativity, due to the lack of images available. The real floorplan is not available either, as I searched for it, so I had to make it all up based on the shape I had after the exterior was done. I have added plants and things because, well all my homes have plants, but I have also added Pines because I feel that Forks has a bunch of them, so I incorperated them into it. I know it might not be as accurate as it could be, but it is a start. Now all I need is the Cullen Family.

So the home has 3 levels. The first level has a 2 car Garage, a sitting room, a study nook and a bathroom. The stairs go up into the main floor, which has a living room, a rumpus area in the living room, a massive kitchen with survery and a dining room that is located in the angular bit of the exterior design. There is also 2 varandahs, one which is part of the angular part, and the other which is to the left of the kitchen. This varandah has stairs that wind down around the structure and onto the ground level of the property. I have just added a pool, and some trees, if you need anything else, you can always add it.

The last level which has the bedrooms, has 3 bedrooms. The first of which is down the end of the corridor. This I decorated to be Edward's room, because he is my favourite character(or Bella). It has the best stereo because it is said in all the novels that he loves his music, and it also has a TV. The pink room is Alice and Jasper's because well, Alice is awesome and she loves bright and girly colours. The other room is anyones. I am sorry if there is not enough space for the entire Cullen Family, but in the books, the couples travel around seperately so maybe you could alternate or something.

I really hope that you enjoy this home, and I also hope that it satisfies the needs of your Cullen Family. Have fun, and happy simming.

PS. Incase you are wondering where I got the sims in the Pics, here are the links to where you can get them from The Exchange.(There is only Bella, Edward, Alice and Jasper)

Bella - http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=557576
Edward - http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=233792
Alice - http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=562333
Jasper - http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=565405

I did not make them, so all credits go to the creators for them.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sims3pack file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
5. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Select the house icon, find the lot in the list, and tick the box next to it. Then press the Install button below the list.
6. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the lot to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
7. Run the game, and find your lot in Edit Town, in the premade lots bin.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Thanks for the house. I just have one problem with it, the stairs. The first set of stairs, I can't have my sim carry her baby up the stairs, but if she's solo, she can go up the stairs. I tried rebuilding it but it's still giving me the "I can't go upstairs with the baby!!!!" error" ughhhhhhhh

2. I don't remember there being a pool. I mean they live in Washington! I think it'd be a little too cold for a swim...And I know this sim house is in a sim town which doesn't have any seasons..(Which I hope EA will make an expansion pack of "Seasons")

3. And I think the cars are facing the wrong way...lol! In the movie "Twilight" they exited the scene with the cars going BACKWARDS so... yup!

P.S. I'm not trying to make ANYONE look bad at all! Its just I want it to be like the book and movie more.. since I'm SUCH a Twilighter! I also think the sims don't look ANYTHING like the actors..but maybe your just trying to go for what they were described by in the book??????? lol..

But otherwise GOOD JOB on the house and Sims, I think they're fantastic and was beautifully well done! I know I couldn't do that! I just don't have the patience for it...



Uhhhhh if you have so many complaints for it not being exactly like the book, I don't get why you can't design a house by yourself. this isnt constructive criticism this is just plain uncalled for??? and as i recall there are no sims 3 vampires yet, and even so, sims vampires need sleep....

I know nothing of the Twilight books or film, but this house is very well done. The stairs on the outside are particularly good. Thank you.

Ok, I am goin to say this to anyone else who cant handle the way I built it.

Get a life. If you don't want to be happy with the way I built it, then build one yourself. I can't believe that you would even post that list of faults. I SIMMIFIED it, which means that I can add a pool, beds and anything else i want. As far as the comment on the sims i picked, well thats an oppinion and I don't care what you have to say. I'm sorry for being rude, but what you said was even ruder. So, in conclusion, get a life.

I think its the best way you can build this house in Sims. I have the website with the construction plans and until you can't place walls in an 360° angle its even impossible to build a similar copy^^. (In the film they change some things too, so I think its no problem^^)
P.S. its Sims, not CAD^^

I am actually working on a final version.. My skills have developed massively in the past year, and I am ready to do a proper version. It looks nearly EXACTLY like the original Hoke House.

Thank you 1000x! I love Twilight and saw that the cars are not right placed but i'm not going to make a drama about it. The lot looks great only the yard is too empty. Still I want to be in my sims place.

I just changed a bathroom in a laundry room. XD
