~New Volcanoland~ 008  
I decided it's picture time. I've had these for a really long time, but I've been reluctant to make an update because I can't play sims until I get a new computer that won't explode. Hope you like these, though not much happens on this update.













We begin this update with the underwater house I build, the first in the Mermaid area of the neighborhood. I still haven't put mermaids in my game, but at least the house of the first family has been built.



This is an apartment building. I quite liked it, and they are more spacious than the previous apartments I built.



The same building from another angle. I can't wait to be able to play again and put some sims.



This is when Taron, one of the alien kids got bugged and became a black silhouette. I got fixed it later.



A sunny day at the Galileis. Heh heh.



This kitchen is from the apartment building at Second's place. It is a common area because the apartments on that building are mostly just one room.



Another angle from the same kitchen, with a door leading to the bathroom (also a common area).



The vampire siblings buy books at Second's Bookstore. Which still rather empty, but it's slowly improving. I'm using the extra money from this shop to build the college subhood.



We end this update with One, First and Nasira's child. I really like her, she is currently a child in my game and you'll see a lot of her in the next updates.


Thank you for watching~

I feel the same way :D :D :D

Your houses are so cute! *_* The steampunkish kind of cute.
"One, First and Nasira's child" Wait a moment, three sims can have a child? How does that work?

The baby's name is One! Now I'm not sure if you are making fun of my grammar or not, hahaha, I hope it's clear now anyway XD
psychosimpsychosim on June 2nd, 2012 07:32 pm (UTC)
ooh! No, I wasn't making fun and your grammar is not the error, I was just being stupid. xD Forgive me, I was just coming from hours of work. I thought maybe there's a trick to mix three sims' genetics in SimPe or something like that.

Oh, it's all good no worries. And your idea is interesting too, The only way I can think of is mixing two and then mixing the result with the third sim.

Your use of architecture is stunning as always. I love it! ♥ I hope you can play soon. :)

Aww, thanks Jessy, I'm flattered *blushgigglesnort*
I'm still stuck undecided on what parts I should buy for a new computer, all I know is that I want to spend the most of my budget on a great graphics card, but I don't even know which one.
psychosimpsychosim on June 2nd, 2012 07:38 pm (UTC)
Well, take a Nvidia, not a AMD Radeon. I chose a Radeon and now whenever my sims play computer or watch tv the screen stays black. :|
ja_vieraja_viera on June 2nd, 2012 11:04 pm (UTC)
Eep D:
I have been looking at Nvidia cards, they seem good, but Pyxis just went and told me she heard ATIs are better so now I'm confused u.u
My current laptop has an Nvidia card and it works very nice except for the ocassional "Hey, I just crashed, but I'm all good now" message.
psychosimpsychosim on June 3rd, 2012 07:53 am (UTC)
Maybe they got that fixed meanwhile, my PC is about 2.5 years old. I remember I could fix the black screen by downloading a new driver, only that required some little ATI control center program that wouldn't install properly so I would see the movies in tv but my computer would crash randomly. ;_; Maybe with the newer cards it works. Though I must say besides that bug I'm very satisfied with my Radeon.

I hope you find one that works! *fingers crossed*

Gosh I want to live in your hood, it is so lovely!
ja_vieraja_viera on June 3rd, 2012 12:14 am (UTC)
Aw, thanks! If you have a selfsim and don't mind me changing some stuff to adapt it to my game, that can be arranged ;D
ja_vieraja_viera on June 3rd, 2012 12:18 am (UTC)
Downloaded :D
Would you mind being a plantsim?
drewsimsdrewsims on June 3rd, 2012 12:21 am (UTC)
Not at all, that would be awesome! :)
ja_vieraja_viera on June 3rd, 2012 01:36 am (UTC)
Okay then, I'll be sure to add you whenever I can play again, you'll probably appear in update 10 or 11 ;D
drewsimsdrewsims on June 3rd, 2012 02:07 am (UTC)
Wow this is so exciting, I feel like I'm gonna be famous :P
Thank you :)<3

These pictures have finally inspired me to start working on a neighborhood and legit trying to make it look nice. I thank you! A question: where might I find those wheel-thingers that're always on the sides of your houses? They're lovely.
ja_vieraja_viera on June 10th, 2012 02:39 am (UTC)
Hello, If it is what I think it is, I got them from this lot, I don't know where the exact download is, I think the original doesn't even exist anymore?

Hope that helps
secretchortle on June 10th, 2012 03:37 am (UTC)
Ah yiss, thank you! I saw that site quite some time ago and lost track of it, so double the awesome for me. Thanks!
