I built a new house for the Mattisons (the other one had some issues that were bugging me, like the roof staying in view in build mode) and am taking my time decorating. There’s a surprising amount of stuff in buy mode for this base game, and some of it is halfways decent, despite its clunkiness, but I really miss CAST.
I also had a “grrrrr” moment when I realized that the ceiling lights disappear when you hit “tab” for camera mode. I had some really nice chandeliers above that dining room table! Also, while I like the lighting options, the indoor rooms seem dark, no matter how many lights I add. I had to brighten these pics a bit.
Despite these annoyances, I’m looking forward to playing some more! I’m in love with my Sims already.
