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.

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.

I just take them using the snapshot button in the sims and then resize them in photoshop. It might be your game settings, like the shadows or something

Okay, I'm just going to be honest here... This house is VERY BEAUTIFUL but, It just doesn't go with the book OR movie...

for:
1. The vamps. don't sleep. So Why do they have beds? Although I know Bella needs her sleep but.. still...

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...

Well Done!! Glad I didn't bother to try! the exterior looks very much like the movie home/set and I like how you simified things in the interior. Off to download.

Cailynn - You're right .

It's not good that there's no piano in the game. I like that instrument so much

I'm just waiting for realistic Bella Ehm.. If someone make Edward it'll be ok xD

Wow this is great, I love it.

CailynnW101, this is the way the creator created this and if you are not happy with something it's quite easy to remove the pool at the back and turn the cars around to face it the "right" way.

ok, everyone. I have not seen the movie. I couldnt get ahold of it. This house was built using a couple of images of the exterior. That is it. So, if it isnt exactly like it, im sorry. And as for the beds, well sims need to sleep

Also, I do not create sims, just homes. Like my avatar says, Sims 3 Real Estate. The sims in the pics were downloaded from the links that were in the intro of the house.

And as for the car comment, dont you think thats a little too obsessive?

Well done. Based on the circumstances (that is you didn't see the movie and you onle built it on some exterior pictures)this is a very good house. I mean even if you weren't thinking about the fact that it's from Twilight, it still could make a good download.
It would benefit you if you saw the movie simply because it does give you an insight into how awsome the house actually is... But you've done a truly spectacualar job anyway and I think that you've done great even if you done please all of those Twihards out there. lol.

Totally not being rude or anything, But I think your being a bit too critical. Sure they didnt have beds, but sims do need to sleep. And who actually pays attention to cars? I was busy paying attention to the chemistry between edward and bella! If you ask me it was a bit rude of you to post that. But then again nobody did ask me and Im just putting my two sense in where it really doesnt belong. and also, who cares? If you want it to be perfect, the sims as well as the house, do it yourself. Beggars cant be choosers.

BTW: Thanks for this house, its amazing! ^_^ I love it!

Oh and if you have read the book, this house is absolutely nothing like the home in it.

This looks like one of those "homes of the future" designed back in the 60's. Soon as we get those pesky sparklepires out of the way, it'll make a spiffing home for a retro space fambly. >3
