Simspiration article

The new site Simspiration is now releasing their first printed magazine world wide. The magazine features a wide variety of topics: fashion trends, gardening tips, tutorials on how to create your own custom content, you name it!

My upcoming issue at Simspiration
I have to say I'm pretty excited about this magazine, especially now that I've submitted an article for the upcoming issue! Woohoo!  It's called "Tips and Tricks: Adding special features to your lots" in which you can learn how to add cool stuff to your homes that do not necessarily include custom content (ex: adding a hidden room that an only be unlocked if your sims perform particular actions).

The magazine also comes with an added bonus, as it unlocks all the custom content featured on the magazine, which is not available anywhere else.

They also have a neat Facebook Page in which you can read more about it, if you like.

I hope you take a closer look at it!

The real truth about the mini Tudors

For the last few days, I've been trying to squeeze really tiny starter homes in 10x10 lots. But that's not all. Each of these homes include an underground cellar that can only be accessed if you perform a particular action. You may have to remove a book from a shelf, or a gem (or even an innocent looking gnome) from a display to visit the hidden room.

Why, you might ask? Why make something so small you hardly find room for a mailbox?

I could say the lots are easier to load if they are small and can fit virtually anywhere on the map and the hidden cellar are just a fun little feature... but that would only be a fraction of the truth. The real reason it's all part of my evil plot to dominate your town. There, I said it! Just don't make me repeat it again.
