I play The Sims in my free time. It can be an incredibly chill game, or you can cause a lot of chaos. I usually spend my time building houses and creating people and crafting whole little worlds because, duh, of course I do.
So of course I built Moonlit Shores Manor from The Weary Traveler in Sims 4. The building engine in Sims 4 is amazing (sadly everything else but the graphics pale in comparison to Sims 3, but that’s a different rant). Since the gameplay is a little meh, and I get obsessed about micromanaging sims because they are intuitively idiotic when left on their own, I instead spend hours just throwing up walls and windows and kitchen counters and stairs and falling in love with stupid, little buildings.
Building the places and characters from my books in The Sims is a pretty nice, passive way to brainstorm too. Oh, what if there’s a little pantry in the kitchen someone can hide in? What if the basement snakes around into a hallway that goes nowhere? What if there’s a man-eating cow plant in the conservatory? You know, normal stuff.
Now the game has limits, and I don’t use any custom content and rarely use mods (cheats on the other hand yes!), so I can only utilize what the game officially gives you to build with, so this build is in no way exact. I also wanted the grounds to potentially be playable, so I had to leave some things out and add other things in. There are no guest bedrooms, just rooms for the main cast to live in. This is what I came up with.
If you’re a Sims 4 player and are interested, you can download Moonlit Shores Manor from the gallery. My username is CheeWagaChooChoo. Just be warned I used stuff from almost every pack except Journey to Batuu (fuck that pack), but no custom content! Remember the cheat code for simoleons is “motherlode” because holy deep abyss this place is expensive.
