That looks really cool! Is it Japan?

I might suggest one thing- using mid-rise deco buildings so you don't need to build so much!

I think that Cities Skylines has a decent set of buildings that they pulled from Cities in Motion that can work well converted to TS3.

Thank you, Jj, for the suggestion. Yes, I try to create a "Japanese big city" feel, and yes, now that I upload the pic, I can see that these deco skycrapers from Aroundthesims3 (conversions from TS4) don't look very good here. They are fabulous at night when all lightened up, but by daylight, not really Japan. I haven't been lucky with finding deco high-rises or mid-rises so far, but I'll search for Cities Skylines conversions. (You recognized your apartment building from São Paten, right? I use a few apartments from São Paten because of their off-white colors and concrete box '60s/70s aesthetics, they can fit into an Asian city nicely.)

I would definitely try to convert from Cities Skylines in order to create the midrises, as it's a lot of effort making shells!

Hehe, yes, I recognized it, and it's surrounded by high-rises just like that in RL. My only problem with theater-like or opera house-like lots in TS3 like this is that I can't figure out a useful function for them - because, apparently, they cannot be played as theaters - even with a Showtime stage, sims will never flock into the auditorium to sit down and watch. Did you build the Kabuki-za? And what do you use it for: decorative only or does it have a Sims-compatible function?

Flora; Sorry so late was on vacation
Yes, I built it ^^ I am using it as a rabbit hole movie theater. It has been really hard to find a way to make it filled...which I guess it can't ;_; Ah well, at least it's functioning.

I thought I had a quite good computer but the combo of Island Paradise and weather did not work out that well Oh well, I can still post some pics from the game I guess...

And here is a weather report for Isla Paradiso: Minus three degrees Celsius and heavy snowfall. And a couple of paparazzi's all around.


And how do we know who would go out in just her underwear to fight some uninvited guests? Just Asala Karam I guess. It's freezing cold out there but she just don't care...

A house I built a couple of years ago and for some reason I think this is the one I'd like to live in IRL as well. Reminds me of late XIX or early XX century houses on the outskirts of European cities.

Finished a Casino for Twinbrook, as the original Riverboat one was not working for me (I mean, it works, but did not fit into my world aesthetic)

Damn, this really gives a new sort of post-communist feel in a way. Long live the commie block.

Default Beach House
This was my first attempt at a beach house, and it was way outside my comfort zone. Not only because it was a beach house for one, which is very different from houses I design in general, but also because I loved how colorful Isla Paradisio was and I wanted to create a very colorful house as well. I'm not 100% on how I did on it. As well, the sims I was designing it for had different personalities from my normal sims, which is really why they're living in Isla Paradisio in the first place. Artemisia (a 3rd generation sim) is very athletic and fell in love with the beach, the windsurfing, the ocean, then men... haha. Well, here is the home I created for her, her husband, and her teenage stepdaughter. I had to post it now because they've got a baby on the way and some changes are going to have to be made, and I haven't decided what yet! (practically, I'll have to get rid of the dressing room, or add another floor onto the house, but I'm considering shipping the daughter off to boarding school just so I don't have to change this house!!! I really went all out with it, trying to create a little slice of paradise for my sims.
