Here’s some more madness from my current game of The Sims 3. I’m really gonna try to stop screenshotting things now.
It’s basically a weird survival house; this family have been burned before, because they are literal ghosts, so they “live” in this weird house to avoid anything else. I’ve decided they are in hiding from a mummy too, so everything is all sealed off and there’s pits around all the paths and stuff. One parent died from a haunting curse, the other from eating a magical jellybean, and the kid died from the mummy’s curse. All of these deaths may have been related to each other. None of them actually happened in-game though because I just made the family from scratch to populate the neighbourhood.
I also made a vampire family as neighbours. I used a pre-made house for them, but I did have to add items for the pets. I totally lost all creativity at this point; their dog is literally named “Floofy Doof.”
While I wouldn’t say no to this kind of house in real life if someone was giving it to me, there’s just so much clutter and closed-off space.
I used to think that bitless bridles were the bee’s knees (mainly when I was a teenager) but apparently they can cause problems; I remember reading something about how 20lbs of pressure from a human pulling on the reins can translate to something like 180lbs of pressure on the horse’s noseband and they can end up with broken nose cartilage. I can’t remember if I’ve got the numbers exactly right but it’s enough to make me think twice. It might just be kinder to have a rubber snaffle on a real life horse.
