The Sims 3: Building a House

The Sims 3 is a strategic life simulation game engine in the popular and critically acclaimed The Sims franchise, originally created by Maxis. The Sims 3 allows players to seamlessly explore the world outside their homes with every lot synched to the main neighborhood time. As ever with the Sims series it is focused on building up your own section of the simulation with the ability to construct your own house. LuigiRules has uploaded an intriguing two part guide to creating a house in the Sims 3:

    moviestorm also has a (much less advanced) editor for making film sets. Like a film set you build the inside and outside separately. I can’t find a video of how they work tho.
