I've not loaded my game and played it, for almost a month. I have loaded it... but got no further than the saved games screen before thinking "Ugh, bored now" and turning it off again. Even now, I've only played it long enough for Riverview to hit daylight hours so that I could take a few pictures of Betty's home.
As you could probably tell from the title, this is Betty's Living Room or Lounge , depending on whether or not you were dragged up... or brought up. I was dragged up. I gave them no choice.
I wish I could show you the whole thing, and not just one room - but it's not finished. Betty still has a lot of travelling and living to do, and though the basic structure is complete (for now), I don't want to share pics of a place that's incomplete. However, as each room get's furnished/finished, my OCD dictates that I MUST share it and keep my pictures folder nice and tidy.... plus it reminds you lot that I ain't actually dead... just a tad distracted by real life... and zumba.
I genuinely loved creating and decorating this room, probably because for the first time in ages, I was decorating for a sim that I know (if that's at all possible). I think Betty is an adventurer, but a bit of a tradionalist at heart. I wanted her to be able to travel the world (that's available to her) and come home to somewhere that was welcoming and inviting, and hers. Hopefully I've achieved that.
The only thing that pisses me off about this room, is the fact that the furniture is just a little too low for the cushions. It's from the LN EP and I honestly couldn't find anything else in game that fit the bill (still using very little cc) that had higher seat pads.
At this point I'll apologise if you're popping in and out, waiting for a Betty update... it'll be here, eventually.
