[Edit Mar 17 2012] I made a few changes and re-uploaded the lot and the package files.]

----

There's probably only one person reading my journal who might be interested in this, but what the hell.

The reason that I've not yet written the next Great American Novel is that I've found a much more productive use of my time: Playing the Sims. Well, more building stuff in the Sims.

Right now I'm working on a town that's supposed to be a slightly futuristic, dystopian version of Macau, if Macau were more like Hong Kong. There are limitations, but sometimes that's half the fun. I figure I might as well start posting the lots as I complete them.

Regarding custom content, store content:

I tend to use a lot of custom content, and some store content - because hey, this isn't supposed to be Sunset Valley. But I do tend to use a lot of the same stuff in my lots. All of the custom content is available somewhere for free*, and the store content is replaceable.

Stuff in .sims3pack files should be included with the lot. Stuff in .package files needs to be put in your game in the usual way.

My lots usually aren't always playtested, because Sims are boring. If you notice a problem with them, let me know. I avoid things I know should be issues, but sometimes things do pop up.

First up, a luxurious apartment by the sea...

Lot Price: 14,652
Lot Size: 19x20
Lot Type: Residential
Playtested: Yes

Special Notes

The Caravan double bed is supposed to make it possible for two sims to use it even though it's against the wall, but the animations will be off.

The bathrooms are set to be public, but I haven't set any of the other doors as NPC doors because I hate puddingface.

* Arrrr.

Huh.

Apparently, Paypal decided to forbid people from using its services to buy or sell dirty books.

Apparently, Paypal has now reversed that decision, for the most part - but will still forbid "obscene" images.

I missed this entirely. That's what I get for not reading my friends list, I suppose.

This wouldn't have affected me much; I don't use Paypal to start with. But in a broader sense, when one company has the ability to basically shut down small internet publishers with a change of policy, that does affect me. Our reliance on private companies for the technology and services that drive the internet means that free speech online is in a weird place.

This is just a couple days after I ran across yet another story of PayPal arbitrarily shutting someone down on Regretsy. Regretsy itself has an interest in this kind of story because of PayPal's shutting their charitable drive down.
