Mini Mansard

Postby lindawing » January 24th, 2018, 12:18 pm

I had a floorplan that incorporated a mansard roofline. Unfortunately, that was a little more complicated than I could do in TS4, since it involved some half levels with roofs, all on one actual level...not going to happen in TS4. So I decided to do it the best I could, with just a simple mansard roof (that isn't simple at all to accomplish). I've been wanting to do a speed build, and thought this would be a good one for a starter, since it's quite small. I built it on a 20x15 lot, and it ended up, after editing to speed it up, at just over 20 minutes, with a single episode. Not bad!

However, the quality of the video went way down. I should have recorded it in 1080p, instead of 720p. I could have left the video silent, and it wouldn't have been too bad, but with the (free) editing software that I have, I just couldn't get the speed build to be a high enough quality from what I recorded, to share it with anyone (sigh). At any rate, I have taken photos, and just treated this as a regular build, so here you are. I hope you like the lot as much as I do.

How lovely! So funny, I started a little home with a mansard the day Laundry came out, however I only got as far as the shell, I must make time to get back in there, dying to make a little laundry room!

Oh good! I hope you do! Lately I've really been enjoying building again. Looking at the new neighborhood that came with cats & dogs, made me really long for a world builder, too. It's quite lovely!

You know, I was just thinking that EA missed a bet with Laundry Day. They could have made pay-machines for a laundromat! Hmmm...I think I'll make one, anyway! :uhhuh: :lol:

That would have been great! I do love that they stack though, that will work well in a laundrette!

I'm working on a mini mall, now, with an integrated laundry center. It's retail, and will have a coffee shop, a bookshop, a gym shop, and a kitchen with bakery. That way, laundry can be done while working out or munching, or studying, etc. At least that's the plan. We'll see how it goes. The shell is done, now...time to start adding shop areas.
