I’m all crazy about Sunset Valley again. Mostly I’m just switching from one family to another in attempt to try something new, give the Sims some good makeovers and remodel their houses.
I’ve played for Christopher Steel before. He’s a cute guy, but he’s a little strange. His lifetime wish is to have 13 types of Perfect fish in the aqauarium (accomplished!). His traits are Angler, Friendly, Good Kisser, Brave and Loves the Outdoors (I changed the last one from the Natural Cook because I already have too many cooks in the ‘hood).
When I played for Christopher for the first time, I wasn’t really keen on his cooking profession. And I know he could do just fine fishing, but I embraced his Brave trait and made him a fireman. Then I fell in love with him. I think this career really suits him. 🙂
Christopher’s social life is a little uninteresting, but his house has always looked very odd. The siding was painted in a very bad shade of pastel blue and the interior was very, very boring. Which is not a bad thing, it’s just that EA Games never knows how to make boring a little less boring… They tried to mismatch a few things around, but the overal look was quite fussy. So I fixed it a bit. I kept some furniture mismatched, changed things around but also kept a lot of stuff just how it was… well, see what it looks like now yourself. Nothing fancy, but I like it better.
The house has finally a normal color and I changed the roof and windows to create more contrast. I made the mailbox crazy blue just to keep that strange mismatched feel that Christopher seems to like.
Since he’s an angler and a fireman, I like to keep some things around that make it easy to recognize his hobbies.
Tiny kitchen. Looks too modern, because I had no better (store) sets in the game at the time I was doing the makeover…
The hall from living room.
The study room looks sort of empty, but it’s actually very small and I couldn’t fit in any more stuff.
The bedroom turned out very dark. Sun just doesn’t like shine this way.
Bathroom is the craziest room in the whole house. I really love the tiles!
The purple dining table and chairs make it much more fun.
Look who’s showed up!
The big yard is fantastic for water slides, BBQs etc.
Okay, once again!
Christopher likes to play hopscotch with his friends in the park. This is Pauline Wan who lives near the beach. I gave her a makeover (this is a “before” picture) and she looks really great now.
But Pauline mostly fails with the game and Christopher is always distracted with something, usually by his phone or bladder.
Good hamburgers save the day. He’s a very manly man, right?
Sometimes he likes to sleep at the Langraab’s Science Facility. Don’t you just love using sleeping bags all around the town?
I’ll leave you with this nice picture. Can you see Christopher? 🙂
