So I keep starting neighbourhoods with an initial idea, and I have no problem with building and making the terrain. But what I need are ideas for what kind of places these are going to be?

I'm currently playing an old neighbourhood of mine that is always cold and gloomy and very brick-industrial, and 'Hinterley' was to be a replacement for that one, but I ended up rebuilding the original. So now I have a semi-completed hood that really needs to have a different architecture style and climate- but what?


The island, Point Halane, needs some inspiration too- I envisioned it as being volcanic, but I want somewhere warm and sunny- without being too cliched.


If anyone has any ideas of websites or places where I can get inspiration from, please let me know!

For Point Halane, how about a Canary Island - Tenerife or Lanzarote? They have an interesting history and very varied geography and climate.

I posted these over in my Lansbury House thread (Creator Feedback) - they're shrunk down versions of the AL roof pieces and had to be remapped. I HATE REMAPPING. There is a small (slight) mismatch with the steel plates versions. They're nearly there though - I'm not going to attempt another edit of those for that because I HATE MAPPING. Just a couple of recolours to put together. They're meant to go over windows like this.

Did I mention I HATE MAPPING!

I've been working on a cat collar, but I can't stop it from sticking out strangely in certain positions. I've tried everything I can think of. Is it worth uploading anyway?

Charity, are you sure you've assigned it to the correct joint(s)? If you have a look at the bone assignments for the original collar, you might see where it's gone wrong. Also make sure the comments are correct.

From how it looks like, the collar has been assigned to one bone, so it follows the cat when it walks around. When the cat turns its head, that bone doesn't follow the turn. I'm guessing perhaps the upper spine bone (or whatever they're called for cat skeletons). Maybe the head or neck bone (again, whatever they're called on cats) would be a better fit?

I tried copying the bone assignments from a collar that worked, but it didn't fix it. As far as I know the comments are correct as well. I don't really understand bones, so I think I've just managed to reach the limits of my knowledge.

OK so I thought I'd post this here instead of spamming all over the random pictures thread. This, @grammapat, is the finished cakestand (with other members of the tea set) plus the tea plate I made (a simple rescale of the saucer). I'm feeling smug about that cake stand, it was a bit of a bugger to get to work.



I'm just going to get it tested over in Creator Feedback because I can't quite believe I've done it right.

oh oh how lovely! Makes me want to take up tea-drinking. Now if you could just add some finger sandwiches and sweets. Kidding - you can send them directly to ME. I'll be waiting for your download (drooling). And honey please, no lemon. Will there be options for the table cloth? I'm assuming the table & cloth are part of the set-?

Namaste

No table is just one I have - the cakestand is here for testing if you want to try it out: http://www.modthesims.info/showthre...839#post5323839
