Do your Sims crave adventure, but not the lack of comfort of sleeping in a tent?
Do they love photography, but lack the means or drive to travel to such far away lands?
Well, fear no more! From the unforgivingly hot dunes of Al Simhara, to the lush and quiet countryside of Champs Les Sims,
the famous photographer Henri Bissau brings stunning images that are sure to scratch your wanderlustful itch.

This is a gift to all the wonderful people who've appreciated my creations

I've been meaning to try creating custom paintings for a while; after getting past a minor issue with the pictures appearing fuzzy, I'm proud to present a series of photographs with a personal touch. Since the beginning I was aiming to create something more than just copy/pasting images from the Internet. As such, all the images in these paintings are screenshots taken by myself, in the game.

This series features photographs from the three locations in World Adventures: Champs Les Sims, Shang Simla, and Al Simhara. Each country is depicted through ten photographs, all involving scenery and no Sims (unless one managed to sneak past me). I tried to capture the mood of every location in these: Al Simhara with its scorching heat and isolation, Champs Les Sims with its large, history-filled buildings, and Shang Simla, with its wild vegetation and organized central area.

  • Basegame compatible, you don't need World Adventures or University (which is where the mesh comes from).
  • You can also use these paintings alongside the painting from UNI, as they don't conflict.
  • There are two versions to choose from: a cheap one ($50) and an expensive one ($200).
  • Each location is allotted 10 images (and believe me, it was tough to choose!), which you can see in the previews above.
  • Can be found in Bedroom/Living/Dining/Study -> Wall Deco, and in Decor -> Wall Deco. They have an environment score of 5.
