Now, I try to play The Sims again. Initially, I wanted to find out something that I can use to design my dream house. Google Sketch Up seemed too complicated for me. Other free applications both for Android and PC seemed the same way. Because they actually are made for Architects and they provide real measurement and other stuffs for real design of house. I just needed something that easy to use, but be able to show 3D perspective, and moreover I wished I can play it with some simulation humans in it xD
I remember that at college life I was playing The Sims 3. But at that time I was not too excited because it was boring and I preferred to play SimCity instead as it suited my major in university. Recently, I just realized that The Sims 3 was the best choice for me to design house. It is 2009 game and doesn't require high requirement, though I think it has adequate 3D graphics and smooth movement, like it just needs 512 MB RAM as minimal requirement. OMG, nowadays PC/laptop always provides 2 GB RAM as the minimum specs and 512 is just insanely too low. I was so happy! Eventually, I installed it in my laptop and yes, I can build my house now, wohooooo!
I like to design some like tiny house or small house which requires us to make limited space efficiently. I'm always so excited when I browse web and find tiny house design from container or just small cube and it looks so spacey due to the good interior design. I want to build that one.
And here it is my first 2 stories small house design. I don't know how many meter square my house area hahaha but compared to sims size (and compared to regular original house provided by the game LOL) it looks small. Actually, I really wanted to build tiny house but because the sims can't tolerate human circulation trick so that seemed impossible :(

|First floor, ah looks homey!|
|First floor another side|
To make it more attractive and challenging, I didn't use any cheats. I preferred to earn money from work and built the house from that money. What a life! Hahaha...

The bonus from playing The Sims 3 is I can simulate myself finally married and make a family with my girlfriend. Before it really happens, I can make it as if it is real. What an amusing game, right? Hohoho...
