Another Saturday, another Sims build. This one I have been working on for weeks. It’s the biggest house I have done to date. I just wanted to make something huge and extravagant. It is extremely laid back in terms of furnishing, though I personally adore the kitchen and the ensuite bathroom in the master bedroom.
You can find Casa Del Vinoduo in the Sims4 gallery online right here, or through the game. Just search the hashtag #renlish or my EA username, renlish, to find it.
I’ve tried to build myself in The Sims4. It’s hard work, particularly since you can’t get out of the “ideal” curvy shape in Sims4 like you could with Sims3. That being said, I tried to reference my own photos and get a decent look-alike. It looks nothing like me but at the same time has shades of me, but hell, I managed to give her good cheekbones and kick-arse makeup!
If the developers would allow you to super-impose a photograph of a person over the Sim face in game, I think it would make the “push-pull” style of editing much easier. I am hopeless at copying – even when it’s my own face and you would think that I would know my own face, right? Nope. The CAS (create-a-sim) machine also has it’s limitations. You can only make the mouth so big, the eyes so small, etc, before everything starts looking a little funky. At one point I looked like a weird Asian version of myself. Ack!

I have two awesome new house builds coming up for you soon. I would have been releasing one tonight, however due to a third-party MoveObjects mod I had installed before EA released the official MoveObjects cheat, it suffered all sorts of glitchiness that needed to be fixed. At the same time I ended up remodelling the house. (I’m a sad Sims nerd. Sorry.) I am also trying to figure out how to do one of those nifty fly-through type of videos so you can see a “live action” film of my houses in all their glory.
Welcome to the first of what will hopefully be regular gaming posts here on Renlish. I’ve been playing The Sims since it’s inception and have owned pretty much all of them up to an including the most recent, The Sims 4. I’ve never really been a heavy gamer and I don’t own all every expansion pack that’s ever come out but I regularly dabble to wile away a few hours.
Until now I must admit my gaming goals consistered mostly of building booby-trapped houses in which I could torture and kill my Sims in entertaining ways. (The trait of a psychopath? I dunno…) But with Sims 4, I was more intrigued with the building aspect of the game. And of course with the great new graphics of the new Sims 4, I’ve got a new addiction.
It’s fun to build the sorts of house you could never really hope to live in in reality – because, y’know, stuff like supporting walls and underpinning are an actual Thing™. And you can’t have three-story houses where the middle story is nothing but a pool. With glass walls.
Soooooo… without further ado, here’s a new Sims 4 build.
Desert Condo features a mezzanine-style, open plan living arrangement similar to what you would find in modern inner city loft appartments. I’ve always been fascinated with the idea of living in that sort of apartment. Being someone who needs a lot of light, the idea of a whole wall of windows really appeals to me, though the bills for heating and cooling would be attrocious. But what the hey – it’s pretty!
