Aiming to squeeze in time to write Violet=Adele’s up to have that up for Sunday sometime. We just got back from our trip, so I’m going to catch up on blogs over the weekend as well. And no more trips planned, (thank goodness!) until holiday time. I need the break to lounge in my new house for pete sake.
I wanted to share a few pictures of my university, I started back up with it before this vacation and fiddled some more last night. I still need to add the gold album to 99.9% of the lots, and if I add that album to a house, will it become a rental? I haven’t had to try and mess with that yet, and still technically don’t, but might as well get them set up.
This is Eastborough University, a newer college, as such has more modern buildings.
Dorms are on the left, main campus in the center, sport stadium with parking in the back next to the Observatory, and the right side is the shops, campus coffee, and the drive-in theatre. (I’ve had that drive-in theater in my downloads for more than a year, and can finally place it!)
This is the lake, and behind is the shopping district, with Duffy’s bar (That Lorelei visited):
The entire school is inspired by my own alma mater, but more modern as mine was a very old college. Lots of trees, lakes, the quad (cause ours had one), I redid the tower, cause ours had one too.
The view from Oliver’s dorm.
Another view from his dorm, this shows the Observatory, the stadium, library and gym.
I love all the trees and walkways that I put in, they remind me very much of my college days. Feeling nostalgic lately, college was fun. Let’s hope I can make it a fun time for Oliver and the future college students.
I have lots to finish, including makeovers for some of the lots, I did a handful. Gold albums, and lot names, right now they are just a mess of symbols, and odd notes.
I’m excited to have it more fleshed out, though there is a gaping hole of emptiness on one side, but I’ll be putting trees and walkways in it for now, until the School Board (ahem me) decide on new additions for the school.
That’s it so far, I’ve built like… two lots I believe? I am really uninspired to “build” my university, which is why it’s taken so long to get it look anywhere near complete.
Thank you for reading!
