The official Sims 3 site added an interview with lot creator Ruthless_kk, one of the attendees that went to the Simposium event to preview The Sims 3 World Adventures. Check out what Ruth had to say below:
How long have you been playing The Sims games?
I have been playing since Sims 2, I think when I started Nightlife, Uni and OFB were all released. I purchased just Sims 2 to see if we would like it.(lol!) and after a week of my daughters and I being totally involved with the game, we went and bought all the EPs that were out.
What got you into building?
I would have started with Sims a lot sooner if I had known I could build! I enjoy architecture and I always loved to build as a kid – Legos, Lincoln Logs, blocks, you name it. Sims just takes it to a whole other level.
We notice many of your lots are Victorian/cottage style – what inspires you to build in these styles?
I guess part of the appeal is the cute factor. I, personally, like houses that are attractive and cute. Moderns can be very dramatic and stylish, but you don’t look at them and say “that’s adorable!” The other appeal is the storybook quality…I was into fairytales as a child and I am drawn to that aesthetic.
Is there a style of building you have yet to try that you would like to try?
At some point, I think I have tried them all, and will continue to do so. I don’t want to limit myself in any way. It just depends on whether or not I have a good idea, regardless of the style.
What was the most challenging lot you have built?
Since you say “lot” I won’t mention my custom world. That was definitely the MOST challenging! As far as lots go, there are a few Victorians that have given me a hard time because I could not get the shape right or I could not easily find a color scheme I liked. The Row House Apartments have to be close to the top of the list. Getting the right balance on the exterior in both shape and color had me pulling out my hair until I hit the right combination.
