  1. I’ve been a big fan of your builds since you were on the sims 3 forums, and I’ve loved the stuff on this site since day one. I am a persistent lurker and can’t wait to see which of the planned lots you’ve been working on lately. Good luck with such a massive undertaking 🙂

  2. Wow!! This sounds amazing! I’ve been following your BB renovation since the Sims 3 forums as well and it’s so interesting to see how well you’ve planned everything out and redone the town bit by bit.

    If you don’t mind me asking, if you’re planning to share the final product, will you be exporting your version of BB as a world or a save file?

    • Hi Pixie! Thanks for all your support.
      I thought a lot about this but ultimately decided that preparing and play-testing a full upload would just be more work than I’m prepared to do, especially since the version I am creating for my own game relies on several mods and scripted objects (e.g. rabbit hole rugs, Ani’s bistro replacement…), and I shudder at the idea of having to compile a full list of those (in fact, some of them aren’t even publicly available any more).
      I do, however, hope that the indexes of builds and families are easy to navigate, and that people can have fun pick-n-mixing their own versions of the town.
