Ambular's Awesome House Redux
« on: 2007 June 26, 06:08:49 »
THANKS THIS IS GREAT

Okay, here we go, Ambular's Awesome House 2: Electric Boogaloo!

- 3 x 3 lot
- 79,729, fully furnished (revised--see below)
- Base Game/Uni/Nightlife/OFB/Pets/Seasons required
- Layout fully compliant with Awesomespecs
- 2 full second-story bedrooms with easy Cheatdeck access
- Houses 7 Sims + cat out of the box (including 1 infant,) but can squeeze in at least 1 more human Sim without redesign
- 1 spawn pod + 1 flex room off nursery with kitchen & bathroom access
- Basement apartment easily converted for vampire occupancy
- Lockable doors + multiple strategically placed APO's for visitor control
- Basement vault can house FFS hack objects, career + Aspiration rewards, crafting stations or extra bedroom
- Fully functional attached garage with exercise machine
- Gated perimeter fence, 1 tile removed from sidewalk to prevent crowd-spawning inside perimeter
- 4 bathrooms, 2 to 3 visitor accessible
- Expandable by adding loft to garage or walling in Cheatdeck
- Dining area seats 10 with coffee and serving stations
- One Desk near main doors with PC
- Comfy lounge chair stragetically placed for emergency napping
- Mini-fridge in Master Bedroom for convenience of expectant mothers
- Includes high-quality beds, plumbing & appliances and multiple skilling objects for all ages
- Backyard fishable pond, grill, swing set, outdoor dining area
- Judicious use of trees and flowers to minimize lag



















Screen shots differ in a few very minor details from the finished house.

ETA:  Fixed a minor issue with a blocked bookcase and re-uploaded.

ETA:  Corrected several other small bits of non-Awesomeness and re-uploaded:

- Rearranged baby toys for greater efficiency
- Removed extraneous back door to prevent NPC stupidity
- Removed second desk and chair, placed PC on One Desk and added loveseat for convenient caffeination
- Swapped out weaksauce coffee maker for espresso machine
- Reversed backward sections of fence to place pickets uniformly on outside
- Removed redundant fire alarms, leaving sprinklers only

New price is 78,922



THE BRIBE:

Whenever Pescado has regaled us with tales of Brynne and her thriving business empire, I've often wondered: How exactly does one make a business of selling puddles of pee?  How are they transported, displayed, stored?  And more importantly, what exactly does one do with Eau de Brynne after buying it?

Well, thanks to the lovely and talented jfade (may his beard grow ever longer!) who graciously executed the idea first conceptualized by yours truly, I have answered this age-old question with the attached hack:

BOTTLED EAU DE BRYNNE.

Yes, now those puddles can be neatly contained, attractively displayed and easily transported by the customer!  Just click the puddle and presto, the bottle is in your inventory!  Better yet, you can now WEAR your Eau de Brynne and capture some of the essence of Brynne herself by sharing in the stink!  Sims who actually LIKE stink will find this very alluring.

Of course, as you can see by the screen shots below, anyone can now bottle any old pee puddle and call it Eau de Brynne, so counterfeits will no doubt abound.  Caveat emptor!  Accept no substitutes!

(To use, place the two files included in Downloads and allow the modified yellowpeeobject.package to overwrite Pes's original.)

I give up, I didn't think I had much of a chance when I entered, but now I know who the winner is going to be.  The house looks great and the bribe is awesome.

Heh, thanks muchly, but I wouldn't give up just yet.  Everybody else liked my bribe last year, but Pes almost took points off for it.  XD

Not last time I checked.  Though it might start to, if you use the bribe too often.  :p

I thought you were supposed to dangle the bribe tantalizingly over the head of the judges rather than present it ahead of judging.

Very nice house, Amber. Great pictures of your furnishings.

I want people to stop saying, "Son of a bitch". Instead we should say "Son of an ASS" because that is more accurate. Spread the word!

Far as I know there's no special rules for bribe presentation.  Thanks!  Smiley

1.75 for aesthetics. I thought this house was really very attractive apart from the preponderance of orange flooring.

It's more of a brown color in-game, at least on my monitor.  ><  But thanks.  Smiley

Amber, I really like your house.  It looks nice and affordable, as well as playable.  Do you have it available anywhere else for download?  I can't download most stuff from MATY anymore. Sad  I keep getting a WordPress error -- whatever that is.  I am non-awesome about such things.

I think I remember something about the bribes having to be something Pescado can't do or make.
