Inspiration for Xbox 1 family of 5

Postby SundropJunkie » December 28th, 2017, 7:44 pm

As you all know I'm on console edition of sims 4...xb1 I would like to see if anyone can make a house for a 5 Sim family. Single story with a pool for my wife and I.... And 3 kids 2 girls and a boy.... For some inspiration. I'm on vacation right now but when I get home I'd like to try and recreate this on xbox 1. We pretty much have the same things as the PC. But maybe if somebody could post a video on YouTube thanks

I'm up for it. Do you want it furnished and decorated? Or just make rooms large enough with good pathing? Yard work? Or leave bare yard?

If you want furnished, decorated, etc., need things like approximate ages, favorite colors, etc.

OK...any prefs on type of architecture?

Here are some plans to choose from:

http://www.eplans.com/house-plans/epl/c ... l#criteria[hw_num_bedrooms][]=4&criteria[hw_num_baths][]=3&criteria[hw_num_half_baths][]=1&criteria[hw_num_half_baths][]=2&criteria[hw_num_stories][]=1&criteria[hw_num_garage_stalls][]=0

http://www.homeplans.com/house-plans/hp ... l#criteria[hw_num_bedrooms][]=4&criteria[hw_num_baths][]=3&criteria[hw_num_half_baths][]=1&criteria[hw_num_stories][]=1&criteria[hw_num_garage_stalls][]=0

I like the way this one works...it's on one-story homes, and you can filter by type at the left (just click to light up any style, to see the selection of plans change), and you can also choose # of bedrooms, bathrooms, etc., at the left.

Find two or three you like, and link to me, here, and I'll choose the one that would work the best in TS4, and get started!

OK...will do. I saw a couple that appealed to me, and I also thought about a man cave/guest bedroom. ;-) I love big builds, so we'll see how it goes.

My only constraint is that I can only record late nights/very early mornings. Our whole family (my husband and I have in-law quarters with our youngest daughter, her husband, and their seven children) are night owls, except for my husband. So I don't get quiet time around here, usually, until about 1:30 in the morning. Tonight is one of my son-in-law's nights off, so there won't be any late-night recording tonight. He works nights, and stays up late on the nights he's home, so not to ruin his schedule. We usually play Minecraft together, along with their oldest boy and my daughter.

So...probably tomorrow I can get a start on this. I might just record the work being done, then voice-over when I can have quiet time. I also have a January Minecraft challenge to play out, and a base to build from one of my two December challenges.

I'll get into it and done with it as soon as I can, though!

Linda, I don't want you to rush you do what you need to do. I'm on vacation right now.... It's not like I can play sims right now. Haha

Oh, no worries! It takes me quite a while to build things. Once I get the bug in my ear, though, I want to get started. :uhhuh:
