my finds: realistic lots (4 Jan)

January 4th, 2006 by daysies

i thought i’d expand a bit further and include realistic lots in my daily/weekly finds.  i’ve downloaded hundreds (and hundreds) of lots over the past year or so and i’m amazed at how realistic these lots turn out to be.  can you imagine trying to recreate the Eiffel Tower and actually making it look incredibly close to the real thing?  how about homes from TV shows or restaurants?  very surreal, if you ask me.

the following list will contain my favorite lot creators (in addition to those starter home creators i listed earlier).  you’ll soon see that i download lots from just a handful of creators, but only because i’m extremely picky as i base my criteria almost solely on aesthetics, playability, and uniqueness (and that it looks like they spent time making it).

 Loverat - fellow staff member on MTS2, she has shared her love of building very early on.  her lots are huge, but they’re very well-landscaped and furnished.  you don’t even need to make adjustments once you install them.  they’re perfection in one fell swoop.
 ehaught58 - quite possibly the only lot maker i admire on The Exchange.  he can make everything and anything.  each lot is very unique and detailed and easy to play.  he’s remade the 50’s McDonald’s (that resides in Chicago) as well as countless other realistic structures (including Stonehenge).  download them all!
 billygruffs - my favorite Buffy lot maker.  she has made every single lot from Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel TV series that you can think of!  (she’s also Simmified all the characters, too.)  i get goosebumps playing these lots!
 V1ND1CARE - i can’t even begin to describe the lots that she has shared on MTS2.  London Bridge, The Rialto, The Seine River, various lots from the Star Wars movies, and the graveyard from the Phantom of the Opera movie.  it’s her eye for detail that is simply amazing.
 Moon_Ez - his lots are just simply beautiful.  in addition to that, he makes exquisite build mode items that make his and our lots all the more stunning.
 en7en - he was the first to start experimenting with changing the roof style.  check out all his beautiful Japanese pagodas in his profile.
 Lisen801 - talk about realism, she took realism in the Sims 2 to a whole different level.  she gave life to our favorite NPCs: the social worker, the maid, and the gardener.
 Numenor - other than being one of the sweetest guys (Italian, too) to work with, his build mode items (and overall expertise in everything else) gives us something unique to play with.  when he’s not tied up fixing our broken packages, he also creates lovely lots, too.

obviously i can keep going on and on and on, but i’m stopping here.  i’ve resigned myself to only downloading lots that i can actually see myself playing with (unless these folks above release anything new) since i don’t really play themed neighborhoods (but you never know).  following this post, i’ll be highlighting individual lots that catch my eye, more than likely falling in the starter home size and price range.
