Sims 4: Modern Industrial Home

Tuesday, September 20, 2016

Fun fact that probably none of my closest friends even know about me: I love playing The Sims! Well, I don't really play the game; I just love living out one of my earliest passions through this game: interior design and architecture. My interest in building and design started when I was just a child and I always enjoyed watching HGTV (yes, I used to watch this for fun when I was a kid lol). I just really loved seeing house transformations and I still do till this day.

The first installment of The Sims came out in 2000 (man...that sounds like 100 years ago!). My brother bought the game and once I learned how to play it...I was OBSESSED. I've played all versions throughout my life, The Sims 2 as well as The Sims 3, which is the version I've been playing since its release. In 2014, The Sims 4 was released but after seeing how different it was from the previous game, I was hesitant to get it. What I loved most about The Sims 3 was the ability to change the colors and patterns on almost every single thing. And as a graphic designer, this option was a God-send! Seeing that this was no longer available on The Sims 4 gave me no interest in purchasing it BUT...I finally caved in and got it this month :) The deciding factor? The graphics. Everything looks so much more smoother and I've been enjoying it very, very much.

Because the building tools in The Sims 4 is quite different than The Sims 3, I decided to renovate an already-built house to play around with and get used to. I chose a house from one of my favorite Sims Youtubers, Deligracy! Her house I renovated was originally called, "Minimal Starter", which I have redesigned and renamed to, "Modern Industrial". I kept the build fairly the same with the exception of expanding the house 1 tile wide (kitchen area) and 1 tile back (bedroom area). I also gated the backyard and gave the entire house a different design aesthetic. If you love industrial design and green plants, you'll love this! This home is uploaded to The Sims Gallery if you'd like to download it (my EA ID is heyjahnice). Here's a few photos of the renovation. Enjoy!

*Base game only*
Small home, perfect for 1 or 2 Sims. Open concept bedroom, living room and kitchen. 1 full bath. Gated backyard entertaining area.

My original upload to the Gallery used a base game fence but I changed it afterwards to this fence from the "Perfect Patio Stuff" stuff pack.

To the right of the red brick wall is the front door and to the left is the bathroom.
