Twinbrook now has it's very own lighthouse. I couldn't leave the beach in it's original state, with a tiny pavillion/band hut and sod all on the beach but a couple of brollys and picnic blankets - so I built a lighthouse, in the middle of the swamp, on the river bend. It's a bit random, but call something a folly and you can build anything anywhere. There's a spiral staircase through the centre of it, all the way to the top floor, and the viewing platform is completely useable. The lot has been playtested. I've left the interior of the lighthouse bare, save for toilets. You can fill each level with whatever you choose, or nothing at all.

I asked a question about Rabbit Holes at The Sims Daily , and the response was such that I thought I'd share some of mine. Urged on by Ninoo (Sunset) and her like of downloads that contain very little or no cc, it made me think that some of you might like what I've done with some of mine. If you don't, that's fine, but there's no need to tell me ;0)

We'd like to cordially invite any and all sim players who love to chat about the game, post pictures, tell stories and generally share absolutely everything they do with their games... to come along to The Sims Daily forum, and join in!
We're an incredibly informal group of people, so you won't find too much in the way of rules and regulations - just somewhere comfy to pull up a chair and share your love of the Sims, with like minded people.
Your hosts/playmates/dogsbodies in this endeavour are Webbymom, Darkshines, Deelightful, Simcastic, Sebausten and ME!
The forum caters to Sims 2, Sims 3 and Sims Medieval... and we even have a pub... The Dog and Duck, where you can chat about your real lives whilst supping a *virtual* glass of wine or pint of Guiness, whatever suits your fancy (of course, we have no clue if you're actually imbibing and typing (or attempting to) at the same time, so dig out !).
We're just starting out, so come join in the fun and help to make our forum, your forum!
PS. The forum is the affiliate forum to Sims 3 Musketeers, just in case you're wondering :)

I'm very slowly rebuilding the whole of Twinbrook, in a similar fashion to the way I'm rebuilding Riverview. But there's more building than revamping going on in this one. My latest offering is a small starter home, only made possible because of the *wandHere* cheat that's part of Awesomemod. It drops the price of all objects etc, to the lowest *used* price, and makes a home more affordable for my/your sims.
I've lots more in the pipeline, but have been incredibly busy just recently, helping to create and organise a brand new sims forum, with five very good friends. You'll have to check back in for more information over the next couple of days, but we should be opening up shop on Tuesday at some point.
