DOH I didn't know it was ready yet! Downloading it now. I think the world looks very cool from the pictures that have been shown around. I like heavily forested areas.

I splurged on the gold edition with the play pen and toddler walker. I had some Simpoints still sitting around from Christmas shopping sprees.

Okay, I'm going to be honest, I tell myself I'm buying a new world to play in, yet I know I won't end up playing in it long LOL! I secretly buy them for the stuff.... I love new stuff for my game.... That being said, this is a weird, lovely world. I think it will make an awesome vacation world and lots of water for the IP EP coming in June. I'm still building my new house and will move in my family soon. Anyone notice routing issue like MV? That place drove me crazy! But I love my new pizza oven...


Happy Weekend!

I really just wish they would sell the "premium" stuff w/o the world.. Sad

I have to say after listening / watching to LGR... lol I'm not as impressed with the water balloon as I was.. I really thought you would be able to float above the world and look around but it actually just teleports and then you only stay a few feet off the ground... I had higher expectations then that (why would I do that to myself! lol)

I really just want the toddler stuff ... but it seems even with the other worlds you "must" purchase the world... so since my birthday is coming up - I'm hoping everyone just buys me Sim Points so I don't have to spend the money myself LOL

I love the new toddler stuff too! I'm probably one of the few who did not buy this world for the balloon. Its pretty, but probably won't use it very much. (I love the LLAMA for transport.) It will be nice for wedding proposals. I love the new trees and flowers that came with this world. The roofs are cool too.. I would guess if you like to build you will like this world (and MV too) for the great stuff it came with. I love the new shelves too..


Happy Birthday - may you be gifted with many simpoints! BloonS

I could not get two Sims in the balloon for a ride at the same time. Very frustrating.

Not super please with the balloon myself. It does have the cool look factor and will make a nice attraction for the festival grounds. (Think carnival ride) Hmmm.. I wonder if it can be "put away" for the winters... I already know that we can have different garden plants growing during the seasons... Will have to experiment later.

Yea, the baby stuff and a few of the other items that were included with the world are what got me to buy.

I really wish they would sell *all* of the stuff from the worlds separately, not just the premium stuff. I really want the objects and maybe the venuw, but I have little interest in the world...

FYI: Balloon will work seasonally on a festival grounds.

Had to eat up like half the parking lot. But visitors can now take balloon rides at the fairgrounds.

Spring, Summer, Fall.


And they put it away during the winter.

Some cool stuff with Monte Vista too.. However, the seeming lack of Attention to detail by those who made it had my TS3OCD acting up REALLY bad.

Arora seems to be a bit smaller a world. But at least the TS3OCD isn't going nutts as most silly errors are simple zoning issues and are easily corrected. World itself looks MUCH better than MV.

A better shot of the Northern Lights...thank goodness.


I thought this was pretty.

Great pics of the sky. I've yet to see anything more than just the green.

Beautiful pictures of the Aurora Borealis! Before my Dad retired he would travel several times a year for work and he always went to places that had brilliant northern lights. He always hated the cold but loved seeing the sky up above the artic circle. There is nothing like it.

A $7 bug and a cheap gem... rant ... and a whole heap of STANK
It is fun to watch... especially with all the sounds of disgust. She also took several deep breaths before diving back into the bin. Going to keep trying to see if something better comes up.

Yes, that is who they are. It takes a while to get both sims in and to stay there, but it can be done.

And my sims in Spider take a ride.... and, um .... entertain themselves.

I am playing this town as the Helgasons. I have started building a colorful Consignment/Elixir Consignment shop. I may put a cafe in the second floor and maybe a reading/study hall on the third floor. It's a big yellow building with white roof and windows. Quite colorful! Once it's done I'll upload it.

I like this town. There is TONS of routable room for new lots, and I've already plopped down a bunch of 30x30 lots and 40x40 on the winding country road.
