AstroLOVE: here is the house!
29, 2003 - by Claire Brybrey, Sims Science
us for a quick tour of the Sims AstroLOVE house!
the 8 testsims moved into the AstroLOVE house October 20th, the house was
hardly equipped and they were not allowed to interact or to go on the Internet.
photos below were shot on October 25th, one week before the project's first
day. Some details might be adjusted still, but you will at least get an
idea of what the house is like. Unlike the SimLOOK house, this time we
kept all rooms on one floor. The house include less facilities (no swimming
pool, terrace etc) but the AstroLOVE project will also last only half the
time and this time the testsims might even be sent downtown if that is
how the scientists votes.
we had a contest for designing the 4 bedrooms, but we had to cancel it
because of too much work with administrating other aspects of the project.
Instead we contacted Prisilla Lake (Greymount's
Home & Garden) and she designed some nice rooms that we based the
final design on. Thanks to Ms Lake for many great ideas for the bedrooms!
This is the backside of
the AstroLOVE house. Andria and Albert are the Aries testsims, here checking
out the lovetub and the BBQ section.
One corner of the largest
room is the testsims' livingroom. Here are Tommy, Andria and Fredric, while
Kim is sitting at the dining table (front).
This is where Andria and
Albert will stay. Red is the colour assigned to the Fire element, and everything
concerning Andria and Albert will be red.
This is where Rufus and
Melissa will sleep, beds are in front of Melissa. Green is the colour we
assigned to the earth element, which includes Taurus.
Yellow is our colour for
the element Air, a colour reflecting a creative mind. This room belongs
to Kim and Tommy.
Blue indicates the element
of Water, and this room is where Claira and Fredric will sleep. It's probably
the room with the highest score, but we don't think that will affect the
Kim is extremely good at
cooking, here she prepares a meal to the group. The kitchen is small but
it has anything needed for a good routine. The dishwasher! It's missing,
we better fix that!
Here we see Claira, Kim,
Rufus, Tommy and Melissa in the dining section. You might have noticed
there are few surfaces in the house, and there will probably be a mess
in no time. But that's life...
