I was in the midst of two fairly complex and large WIPs and wanted to do something small and quick (as quick as I can manage anyway). I was struck by this shot of a modern design that I spied on Pinterest:
I loved the simple lines, open balcony, and that stark white. I didn’t want to go quite that micro though, and I did want to add some pops of color. The rest of it just proceeded to develop and shift a bit as I worked. I think the result is a home that any bachelor(ette) sim would be proud to call their pad! Not enough to this build to warrant a video, so I didn’t create one, but here are some additional images of the exterior. Front:
Back with Entrance:
A closer look at the pond beneath Stilted:
And the waterfall emerging from a mysterious cave:
I had a bit of fun with a planter design near the entrance:
And I enjoyed creating my own modern welcome mat:
The interior isn’t large, but it’s largely open with plenty of windows, and of course the Get Together dance floor used as a skylight (as well as a … floorlight?). The photos you’ll see were all taken by my sim photographer in game and are unique.
Images of the living room:
Closer look at the dining area at evening time:
I like the way the colors pop even more as it gets dark outside.
Here are some overhead shots to show you the layout of the property and rooms.
And I can’t resist a few night shots, as I did do some work with the lighting.
A closer look at what I did at the entrance. It looked so boring to me, so I introduced an indoor/outdoor fish tank with a planter above it. I think it fits well with the open theme.
Stilted provides 1 bedroom and 1 bath and costs an affordable $40,321. It is situated on a 20×15 lot (I used Nookstone in Oasis Springs). It has been thoroughly play tested, and I found no issues with it.
If you’re interested in taking a look at Stilted in game, click here to download the build from the online Gallery. Or, if you prefer, you can search for it in the game Gallery by its name, or by my hashtag, #bryscreations. Please be sure to place the home in build mode, so that lighting colors and intensities are preserved. Hope you enjoy it!
Update regarding my previous builds:
As I mentioned in my last post, the 12/4/15 patch introduced a few bugs that have unfortunately caused problems with some of my older works. I have revised some of them: Colonial Coalescence, Green’s Blue Victorian, and Chokkaku. It turned out that Vivid Art Gallery’s issues were mostly corrected with a repair of the game. The tops of 3 cabinets are still visible through the floor on the third level, but it doesn’t affect gameplay and would be an easy fix for downloaders, so I am letting that one go. With regard to the rest, I am still waiting on/hoping for a Maxis patch to fix their issues…
