Here are some ways to get a start on the beach challenge in ts4 for Anneke's challenge... summer06

All will allow a ts4 player to have a ready to build place to build their beach houses, like the island lots in ts3 :D

Nando's Beach Mod

I'm including several links (the first is Nando's direct link) so that you can go read about it, see some more pictures and watch the YouTube video.

There is a relaxer trait for your sim, should you wish to try it :D

Direct to Nando's Blog

More Pictures

Nando's Video


This second option transforms Granite Falls into a Tropical Paradise and you can build there to your heart's content. Please read all about and watch the video on this page :D

This mod has also added the relaxer trait and a beachjunkie quest for your sims :D

Tropical Paradise Mod

This last is from Snowhaze at modthesims and requires Get To Work and Andrew's Effects Player for the Wave Emitters to work.

Large Lot

Small Lot

Snowhaze's ts4 cc

Using Andrew's effects player, there are actual waves, if sims are on either lot (large and small lots available - 64x64 and 50x50). Just turn it on; no need to place any of the wave emitters - they are already placed for you :D

If you do not want wave action, there is no need to get the effects player. You can add more cool stuff to the "ocean," as Snowhaze has recently added quite a variety of ocean item sets.



Thank you, Crissi, for my beautiful signature <3

Your inspiration picture is just stunning.  feeldaluv

Your interpretation of it is a visual feast for the eyes. I am loving both deck spaces and the little pool of fountains on the end. I'm going to be sure to check out the interiors as well!

I'm starting to think A Cat travels and lives better then I do. giggle

Lorry! Once again you've completely blown me away with your designs! It's absolutely breathtaking! I'm seriously in awe of your talent and vision, I am not that creative at all! I can create simple objects and recolor other people's meshes, but I can't build, I can't landscape, and I have a hard time thinking architecturally on where/how to place things.

You always seem to have the perfect set up! I would soooo download your houses!

Lorry, I cannot compliment you more than what Alouette already said. Your entry is indeed a feast for the eyes!!
And I found Alouette's kitty. (Won't say where, since others will still be looking for her. )
She is indeed the traveller, and such a cool idea for you to use her every time!
You make creating scenes look like so much fun and I appreciate every room you share with us!

TJ you can have any of my houses, you'd be shocked if you saw how many I have......they are quite boring though, because all my builds are for game playing. I'd be happy for you have whatever you want!
OMG you are so incredibly talented that I'm not even going to go there, I could go on and on about your amazing creativity.........Leader of your fan club, remember :Val10:

Anita between you, TJ and Sam, I have a huge lump in my throat and tears in my eyes. We are always so critical of ourselves, it's such a nice change for me not to be making excuses for poor work. I really am trying to take pride in what I am doing, but I couldn't have done any of it without you all boosting my confidence. I am so fortunate to have friends like you guys amour2

Sam from the first picture you posted to now, look how far you have come, both of us! Picture taking is one of the hardest things to do, I've read tutorials on the 'how to's'.....but it just turns into blah blah blah. You are colour blind, I struggle to read words, as in my eyes start to blur, so we both have to manage with our diabilities, I think we are doing ok budhug

I feel that with all the support here on CBS that we can do just about anything we set our minds to..for the longest time I have been wanting to learn all this..but never had the nerve, support or the help to do it..it takes family and a team to do all of this..and I am very proud to have you all as my family and team.. flirty

Sam there's an advertisement on tv here that says, when females get together they become a very strong unit with an unbreakable bond.......lol ok it may be an ad for a female product, but the words say it all!

Lorry - what an amazing build!

You captured your inspiration picture beautifully :D

Seriously - (and I do get why you say what you say about yourself, but you really need to knock it off at this point, however. You have grown past where you think you are from wherever it is you once were)... You are tremendously talented. Truly.

I can feel the breeze, sense the coolness of the pool, and hear Sam the cat purring while waiting to be found (yes, I found the kitty - mine hide the same way - smart they are <3 )...

Lorry - you are Fantastic... believe us. We are a bonded group of wonderful women who have zero reason to tell each other anything but the truth. summerB7 grouphug

The fact that we have bonded like this is trully amazing! My husband still cannot understand why I have to connect at least once a day..... but more is better. I don't want to be without the chats, humor, support and caring for even half a day.

Lorry, I agree with Suzaan.... you have tremendous talent.
Suzaan, you have been so busy with the DOTY, and you have learnt so much you said, that I can hardly wait for your mini challenge results are up here.

I will have to work VERY hard on mne to stand up to all the lovely entries we had so far.

We are the best female product around!!

Anita - I had to giggle when I read your last sentence ... for some reason my mind read Feminine Product and not female! And, all I kept thinking about was tampons, and pads! LOL 

But, I totally understood what you meant and I agree! I too find myself sneaking in every day to see what's been going on, I may not always have the time to comment right then, but I read and try to go back and comment when I have time and can concentrate and spend quality time here looking at pics, reading threads, and just chatting!
