There are thousands of quality patterns on TSR, so don’t stick with the predictable. Go for something bold and unexpected, as that’s what’s most likely to grab the attention of your friends. The blue pattern (left page) isn’t necessarily themed specifically for a bathroom, but it’s colours suggest a nauticul influence. This striking pattern choice makes a bold statement in the room, wall decoration isn’t required, the wall itself is a piece of art.

art. And the warmer tones in the turquoise blues match with the toasty colours of the wooden features. The room below contains only two feature patterns, but it looks like more due to the same patterns being used but in different scales and colours. The left wall pattern is the same as the lampshade pattern, but the lampshade is in a rich red to bring out the colour of the leather on the chairs, whereas the pattern on


the right wall is used on the cushion, as well, in different scales. I have retained similar colours on the second pattern because a room needs some consistancy, but not too much in that everything looks the same. The two patterns themselves are different but compliment each other, but this can vary as to what look you’re going for. My chosen patterns compliment each other because they are both quite round and organic, and not in your face, so to speak. A pattern using squares and another using circles, for example, would contrast and would match well with an outrageous style.

Bracemoor Security Jail After the break-out of one of the most dangerous criminals of TSR, The Whippet, Simspiration Magazine is visiting the high security prison on the outskirts of Bridgeport. The jail was built 1920 by CycloneSue as the most modern prison of it‘s due time. It‘s built on an Island so that it‘s impossible to escape. In the meantime Bracemoor Jail became old and ruinous because the town didn‘t have the

money needed for redevelopement. but the town hadn‘t the money for a redevelopement. For this reason the police suspect that The Whippet dug a hole in the floor of it‘s prison cell and had a chance to escape in this way. The police also suspects that it took years to dig a tunnel out of the prison. Where The Whippet put all the mud is dubious.

The Wippet‘s cell Policemen found a big hole hidden under a moth eaten old rug. It‘s also curious how a prisoner can have a shovel in his cell. Difficult Whippet to deal with We talked with some prisoners and they told us that The Whippet was a aggessive prisoner.

Inhabitants relieved after some bodily assaults Bracemoors inhabitants are very relieved after The Whippets break-out. A cell guard shows us a deep bite in his left arm caused by The Whippet. A cell neighbour is telling us about verbal attacks.

FREE TIME After a long, hard day prisoners have the opportunity for some sports in the prison court. There is also a gym and a indoor swimming pool. Unathletic prisoners can spend their freetime with reading, doing computer games or playing chess.

Panorama view

Your Sims are rich enough to have a villa. Why not spend them a bathroom with a panorama view?

Ash Wood If you are rid of boring tiles the new water proof wooden panels could be interesting for you. Pralinesims offers water proof panels at her minisite in any size and colour. Panels are easy to install and very easy to clean.

hina - what do you feel when you hear this word? Is your brain creating pictures of clothes with designer labels that cost only ten percent of the price usually to pay; or of hand made toys; or of crowded cities? Dear reader, sit down in your favourite chair, a nice cup of tea beside you, relax and come along with me. I’ll take you to a land so beautiful and full of peace that you’ll never think of the above again!

Of course I felt excited when I heard that I should visit China to write a short travelogue for you. But I wasn’t prepared at all to what I should meet. When I caught the very first view at Shang Simla I couldn’t think anything else but: “How beautiful!” This famous old Chinese town, hidden in a valley surrounded by soft sloping green hills at the feet of high mountains and vaulted by an inimitable sky strikes the visitor with its warm colours of earth and all shades of green highlighted by the stunning shades of red added by the trees. You won’t believe that they just grew there; it looks as if they were masterpieces particularly placed on perfect spots by an artist. Not until the second look you notice the little houses merging with nature and become a part of it. But it is the gorgeous light that makes Shang Simla the very unique place in the whole world. Our chaperon smiled. He didn’t hurry along as he knew he had to give us some time for moving from the bustle we came from to the peace of this place. And so I learned the second lesson: In Shang Simla you meet people of such great kindness and courtesy you won’t find anywhere else. The base camp, our first destination, is placed on foot of the hills and I have to admit that I was rather short of breath after climbing the more than 500 steps that led up to the entry.

(To be true – I counted them later a few times and actually numbered 54, but I swear they felt like 540!) But all the pain was forgotten by the view we had from the base camps’ deck. No one of us would descend again; all we wanted was rest and enjoy the clear air and let the eyes wander over the hills to the point of snow-covered mountaintops far away and back again to the Forbidden City that lay down at our feet, calling us to come and visit it. And so I did. While the others had a break I went down again, took one of the bikes waiting to be used by the visitors and entered the Forbidden City. The market place right in the centre is a great point to start some exploration. You’ll find amazing shops there. Bookworm I am I first entered the bookshop where I spent some amazing hours discovering some written treasures totally unhindered by Li Yuan who patiently waved his fan. I couldn’t resist buying some fiction and added a book about fishing.

Right near the bookshop I found the little grocery store where I bought fried stir, my first Chinese food, from Jiannan Lu. It wasn’t easy at all to eat it though because knifes and forks are unknown here; but after some trying I managed to use the chopsticks without any bigger accident. It was delicious! And I was more than taken with Jiang Lu, the merchant of the General Store and a great cook, telling me the recipe! After having a really nice time chit chatting with him I bought the Jiangzhous’ treasure chest here and added one of the Chinese incense holders, I lit the same night and now I know I don’t want to be without them anymore. I often visited the market place again, where I met Wu Xio, the special vendor, who became a great friend. You can buy the most wonderful and gorgeous wares from her, very special things that will wipe fear away or bring you back to safety! And though there is something mysterious about her wares I never felt uneasy – far from it! If you ever meet her, tell her I’ll be back soon and do a little gossip with her. She enjoys it so much! We had a great time together. And don’t forget to have a look at her potions – it might be very helpful! The next days I began to explore the surroundings of the Forbidden City. I visited the famous Phoenix Martial Arts Academy, where I got my first lessons in Martial Arts. It wasn’t easy but the people I met there where so friendly and patient with me I learned a lot at first go. I began to inspect the Adventure Board right down near the stairs leading up to the base camp, where you’ll find notes about who is asking for what, and decided to give it a try. . I never thought I could have so much fun helping people! I caught some wonderful Koi they needed to store up the pond in the Scholar’s Garden – a peaceful place that you should visit at all costs – I collected some jade and did another few little favours. No big deal for me at all because I had a great time doing that!

I spent a lot of time outside and often sat down to enjoy the gorgeous views that this spot offers to you to enjoy. I nearly felt like a snatcher when people paid much more than the actual worth for what I brought to them. You would feel like a parasite, too, when receiving 5840 Simoleons for three Tancho Kois or the tenfold worth of a bottle of homemade nectar I luckily had in my luggage as a possible gift. But they would have been hurt if I hadn’t accepted and so I did. It was great though to collect Visa Points – I would never reject them. At this point I was determined already to come back and buy a vacation home right here and I was told that you have to save Visa Points to be allowed to buy one. No bad idea, if you ask me. So they can be sure that only people will settle down who feel up to joining the people of Shang Simla – with helping and being a member of them. To be true – the base camp isn’t the Simplaza. It isn’t luxury and there are better beds out there than those I slept in though I felt like sleeping in heaven accompanied by the sweet singing of the birds in the morning and the soft chirping of the crickets at night. At any rate it’s a nice place for someone who visits Shang Simla for the first time. You’ll find all you need here and if you don’t bother about sharing a bedroom with a stranger or other people crossing your bedroom at night to reach the bathroom it’s even a lovely place to stay. You won’t feel alone because you always meet

meet a lot of other visitors. But be careful if you have a love waiting for you at home – at this enchanted place on top of the world it can happen that you fall in love with a stranger before you realise it. No wonder – your heart is open and vulnerable. At this place that breathes pure beauty it’s impossible – even for the grumpiest person you can imagine – not to open the heart! You don’t want to leave Shang Simla already? You want to stay and hear and see more of it and get known to all the lovely people yourself? I can feel with you; I didn’t want to leave either. But after visiting the General Store for a last time, buying a dummy and a block breaker to continue Martial Arts at home, I had to come back to bring this report to the editorial office; the deadline is in ten minutes already. But I already miss the great skies of China by now. You know you can see China with your own eyes not only through mine? Just do it – change your chair and sit down at your pc and simmle “travel”. As for me I’m leaving for Shang Simla again in exactly five days. There are so many secrets waiting for me and still so much to discover. Maybe we’ll meet.

We met Gosik, TSR‘s leading shoe designer and object artist in her secret workshop. She showed us how to recolour glass for objects (see full tutorial in this magazine) and gave us a very special interview.

What is your bad quality?

I do not like rules and will bend them whenever I have the opportunity to do so. What would be your 1st first question 2 the people of Antarctica? Would you like an extra blanket? Two maybe?! I‘ve got plenty so don‘t be shy.

If you could select to be any food, what would it be?

Why am I asking you these questions?

I would be a lemon poppy seed muffin or a medium rare steak.

Because everyone else were smart enough to run, before you started asking questions?

46 |

Do you speak with your rabbit? Not really... Maybe just sometimes if she does something wrong. Unfortunately she never answers…

If you could be any character in fiction, whom would you be? I honestly don‘t know… All the interesting characters I can think of are male and i wouldn‘t like to be man.

If you try 2 fail, and succeed, which have you done? I would fail at failing i guess.

If you could be a super hero, what would you want your superpowers to be? I‘d like to read other people minds.

If you won $20 million in the lottery, what would you do with the money?

You make shoes for Sims. May we ask what shoes you prefer in real life and which shoe size you wear?

I would invest it somehow and live on the interest.

I love high heels, I think it may even be called an addiction… I wear size 38 (american size 7)

What‘s the favourite set you made? I like all my bathrooms, but Kobe Bathroom is my favorite.

What sets are you planning for the next time? I‘m in a „shoe“ mood right now, so probably for the next couple of days/weeks I‘ll be making shoes only.

This tutorial is a step-by-step guide for making recolorable glass. It will however not show basic things, like starting new project, making meshes or preparing textures.

What you will need before sta rting this tu torial: - meshes of your ne w object (high and low LOD) - all texture s: overlay (if needed) mask multiplier a nd specula r

48 |

Important things to know: - Different parts of your mesh that will have same material should be in the same group (for example: Group 0 - shadow, Group 1 - solid material, Group 2 - glass) - glass MUST be mapped on the UV map just like all other parts of your object - if you want your glass to be shiny in game the area where it is mapped should be white on the alpha channel of the specular

I’ve cloned Table coffee end designer. I chose it because it is similar to the coffee table I’ll be making. It already has a glass group, but it is not necesarry to have it when making recolorable glass, so you may as well choose an objects that doesn’t have one. Already existing groups and materials: Group 0 - ground shadow Group 1 - glass for objects Group 2 - phong

Group 1 will not be needed so just right click it and choose „Remove”

... and „Yes” when Workshop asks you if you really want to do that.

| 49

Now rightclick Group 2 (phong) and choose Duplicate.

When Workshop asks you if you wish to continue, again select „Yes�. You will now have three groups in your project: ground shadow and two with Phong material.

There is also an alternative way of doing what we have just done, but it will only work if you already have a glass group in your project (or any other group that will not be needed, and that can be changed into recolorable glass). Instead of removing the glass group, you can link the glass to the Phong material by rightclicking on the Default Material, selecting Link and then selecting the right material from the right group. In my example it will be the first material from Group 2.

50 |

Enter Material Editor of the Group 1 and from the Shader drop down list select the Glass for objects material.

It is very important that you click No when Workshop ask you if you want to populate the material with the default properties. When you are finished, click on Done in the Material Editor.

You want Glass for objects material to be in this group only so select Yes when workshop ask if you want the material to be duplicated and linked to this group only.

| 51

Next step is to edit material properties. You have to open Material Editor once again. There you can delete properties by right clicking and choosing Remove, or add new ones by clicking the + Add link in the top right corner of the Material Editor.

In the dialog that will show up, you can select what you want and add it by choosing OK.

52 |

With regular glass the transparency and color of the glass is only controlled by Diffuse. But with recolorable glass colour will also be controlled by one of the channels in Mask. RGB - color A - transparency There are no „best� values for the diffuse. It all depends on what do you want to achive. The only thing you should remember about is that they should be neutral, so that they will not affect the pattern that is applied in game.

Here is an example of the same table with different Diffuse values (all tables have the same pattern applied to them):

Here are the properties I used for my table (which are based on a similar glass object by EA):

here was a moment in the past time that the human and spiritual world needed a messenger, not an angel... Somebody who could read minds and understand the pain. Somebody able to give love, the perfect and subtle touch the tender of the breeze over the hurting flesh.. But both worlds were the opposite and the shadows covered the old chapels. Nobody crossed the murky bridges under the moonlight.. Nobody walked into the ancient woods floating in a sea of infinite mists. Then the young lady appeared, dressed in black, with a living heart, with unique eyes, pale as the moon. She is not an angel, but she can be... She is not evil, but she can act so... She is not bloody, but could be so... She is not exactly a sorceress, but can make magic, suddenly... The different face of the dark side she is. Druscilla Goth she was called, but believe me: we will never be sure if that is her real name.. Who could certainly know... without any doubt, who are named the spirits?

LOT CHALLENGE Challenge was to portray a family and their traits in a house. This was the story: Joe Simkins is looking for a home that will suit his family. Joe himself is ambitious and wants to be an international spy. He can be childish, a slob and mooch, and he can charm those around him. His wife, Joan is a bit of a snob, but enjoys the outdoors and loves to garden. She is artistic but can be inap­propriate at times. She wants to have the perfect garden. Their teenage daughter, Jill is into music. She has a high IQ and is considered a genius and is a bit insane but loves to read. They also have a younger son, Jack who is a hot head. He prefers to stay indoors and is a whiz with computers. Joe’s mother also lives with them. The only problem is she hates kids, technolo­gy, and has no sense of humour. But she is a fantastic cook and a perfectionist. Can Joe find the perfect house that will suit his family?

Simkin‘s Dream House The level. very fit

house is one One level with 4 different rooms to all family members needs

So far Joe and Jean (grandma)have fulfilled their life time wish... Jack & Jill are straight A students, and Jill has guitar level 9 now. Jack is going to be a famous inventor and is loving his room and his own tv! Grandma worked hard and is the world famous 5-star chef of the local Bistro. Joan is a stay-at-home-mom, but sells her fruits and vegetables and makes good profit. Her garden is 50% perfect. The lay-out of the house was designed to give every family member his/her own space and with the main rooms (living and kitchen) in between, they can go on about their own ways, but there is plenty of space to sit down and read, play a game of chess or just chill and relax.

The back of the house First thing we see is Joans dream garden. A patio was put up as a BBQ area, so that little Jack could be semi outside too

Jeans Kitchen As a 5 star Chef, Jeans only wish was to have her 4 star kitchen. It is her domain, but the family likes to gather here too

Livingroom Jean, the techofobe, loves to sit here ... As long as the TV is off. Jack has his own TV in his room

Grandma Jeans room

Joe and Joans room

Jacks room Jack loves green, but ... unfortunately hates to be outside. The wizkid has the most stuff in his room, to compensate for the unlucky hates outside trait

reetings! Salutations! Hello! Or...whatever. I‘m Joan Wallace. Simspiration‘s Paparazzi/Private Eye/Gossip Girl, etc. I‘m the girl who knows everything about everyone around this town, and that town, and that town in that other country...well, in fact...I end up in the strangest places following the strangest people. For this issue, I‘ve landed myself in the quiet town of Riverview. My target? Don Lothario. Rumour has it that he recently appeared in town... and I‘m set to find out just what he‘s up to.

Some residents say he arrived by a time machine, other‘s say the McDermott‘s brought him in, as he lives near their big farm. I‘ll get up in the rafters of the granary he lives in for the night to see if I can get anything good. Shortly after he fell asleep, it‘d would seem he was having some kind of dream...flashbacks or something from his past?

„Nina...oh, no...sorry, yes...I meant you, Dina. You‘re for me...not your sister or that maid... You‘ll...reject me!? How dare you...Bella Goth! I‘m sorry...Cassandra...right‘s not the time for marriage...“ Apparently, this Mr. Lothario sounds like a real Don Juan... perhaps he‘s running away from all those women...? I need more information before I settle on that... The next morning, I followed Don Lothario to a local scrap yard.

I‘d heard him discussing with the grocery store clerk about where he could find an inventor. Just what is this fellow planning?! Unfortunately, I couldn‘t get close enough to hear the entire conversation... but, what I got out of it was nothing spectacular or that we didn‘t already know. I could tell from his expressions that he was pleading with the man, he seemed very nervous or paranoid. From the looks of the other man, he had

no idea what this Lothario lunatic was rambling on about. Perhaps time travel is bit too advanced for this Mr. Broke fellow. But, my previous theories are seems more likely that his past caught up to him... and by some magical time travel such nonsense, he‘s landed himself here... by the hands of those women... hmph, I was hoping for a bit more scandal.

Case closed.
