More from Appaloosa Plains

Here’s some more madness from my current game of The Sims 3. I’m really gonna try to stop screenshotting things now.

Screenshot-59
An improved work uniform. Having said that, whenever I go to “Edit Town” and come back, my Sim seems to have a totally different work outfit, some barmier than others.
Screenshot-60
The Bluth model home I built on the lot next door. It’s not perfect (especially the roof) but it’s pretty fun.
Screenshot-61
This random dog knows what’s up.
Screenshot-62
Halloween garden table all year round.
Screenshot-64
An objectively hideous painting.

Screenshot-65

Screenshot-66
Couldn’t resist putting some Simlish hover-adverts on the side of the barn.
Screenshot-67
Butt in the wall.
Screenshot-68
Sweet Cola. I very much intend for my next dog to be a brown retriever named Cola, whether or not he’ll be a Curly Coat like the Sim remains to be seen.
Screenshot-69
A knocker on the toilet door.
Screenshot-70
Get out of the toilet bowl?!

Screenshot-72

Screenshot-73
We went outside to watch stars.
Screenshot-74
A T-Rex head. Originally it was over the bed, but it somehow blocked people getting into bed, so I put it on a different wall.
Screenshot-75
Swimming costume in the kitchen.
Screenshot-80
Horse Austin having a nap in the Bluth courtyard.

Bluth outdoor firepit

Screenshot-84
Houses don’t have furniture until you’re allowed in.

Screenshot-86

Screenshot-87
It’s not perfect but I worked pretty hard on it.
Screenshot-88
And the online floorplans available to use as a reference were pretty confusing.

Screenshot-89Screenshot-90

Screenshot-91
The upstairs is definitely a tad wrong, and I had to put the master bed in a different place to make it work.

Screenshot-92

Screenshot-93
Lucille and Gob.

Screenshot-94

Screenshot-95
Buster blocking the stairs.
Screenshot-96
Lindsay at the bar in her nightwear.

Napping outdoors.
Screenshot-106
Michael always looks quite unhappy.
Screenshot-108
Ghosts and stuff yo.

Screenshot-110

Screenshot-111
The dog having a nap near a snake.
Screenshot-112
Lindsay turned into a zombie.
Screenshot-122
A pool full of Bluths.
Screenshot-123
The cat caught a blue-gold macaw and now I am in love with it.

Screenshot-124

Screenshot-126
This is a nice view aside from that meddling ghost.
Screenshot-127
I could probably do with one of these machines in my life but also that looks uncomfortable.
Screenshot-128
Weird reins.
Screenshot-129
Look at this tiny cutie!
Screenshot-130
Making an Egyptian-style house for a family of ghosts.
Screenshot-131
A peashooter fighting a zombie.
Screenshot-132
The living room of the ghost house.

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.

Screenshot-133

Screenshot-134
A slightly oversized bathroom.
Screenshot-135
And the ghosts don’t even need to use the walkways!

Screenshot-136

Screenshot-137
Hello I am a ghost.
Screenshot-138
Stair error. Building the walkways was a nightmare and I dunno why everything changed heights.

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.”

Screenshot-139
I definitely did not build this house.

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.

Screenshot-140
I dunno why he’s dressed like that, but he seems confused about the pet feeder I put in.
Screenshot-141
The cat seems to appreciate the litter tray though. And I do like those big useful bathroom counters they seem to have in America.
Screenshot-142
The vampire house is at the back of our house, although it doesn’t look very good from a distance.
Screenshot-143
Gob’s formalwear.

Screenshot-144

Screenshot-145
Buster in his floaty duck ring.
Screenshot-146
An actual shark in our pool??!
Screenshot-147
Nachos are the fucking best OK.
Screenshot-148
This is a nice view.
Screenshot-149
Weird snooker with a blender. For all I know, this is how real life pool/ snooker/ whatever works.
Screenshot-150
Lucille in a swimsuit in our fridge.
Screenshot-151
Bonehilda and Lucille failing to notice each other.
Screenshot-152
Bonehilda fixing a sink.
Screenshot-153
It’s a nice view at nighttime too.
Screenshot-154
Disappearing into the horse.
Screenshot-155
Big mouth.
Screenshot-156
Aside from the glitchy bit of the bridle behind the horse’s teeth, it doesn’t look like there is a bit in the mouth, which would seem to make this bridle some sort of hackamore.

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.

Screenshot-157
Will is always trying to walk off with the parrot.
Screenshot-158
Yes to cats, no to ants.
Screenshot-159
A cat scratching a possessed chair.
Screenshot-160
Using a tent in the garden. I managed to set it on fire somehow.
Screenshot-161
No to cats and also parrots?!
Screenshot-162
Oh yeah them vegetables.
Screenshot-163
Trash on our path for some reason?
Screenshot-164
This was a poorly-timed screenshot, but a beautiful dog was thinking about dat spoop.

Still trying to foster some sort of relationship with wild horses.

Don’t we all punch blocked toilets instead of using the plunger?
