What's a Noirran?


There’s a reason Hi-Fructose keeps tabs on Tokyo artist Shohei (aka Hakuchi) Otomo(featured in Hi-Fructose Vol. 20). The only son of great manga artist Katsuhiro Otomo, the acclaimed writer and director of the anime cult classic Akira, Hakuchi carries on his father’s legacy with his own graphic illustrations that combine Japanese iconography with a dark, retro-punk edge and a healthy dose of sardonic humor.

It’s on a 30x20 lot. It features 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, a sun room, and an attic turned into loft/artist’s studio.

Five almost identically dressed, pale young women walked past him. They wore long dresses made of velvet, each dress as dark as night, one each of dark green, dark chocolate, royal blue, dark blood, and pure black. Each woman had black hair and wore silver jewelry; each was perfectly coifed, perfectly made up. They moved silently: Richard was only aware of a swish of heavy velvet as they went past, a swish that sounded almost like a sigh.

Sims 4 - Industrial Loft Part I

For now, I only have two rooms ! Lanzo and Olivia have reached the max level of their careers (Culinary career in the Chef branch for Laz, and painter career in the Master of the Arts for Liv’), and I wanted to create rooms using the furnitures they have unlocked. 

Use the tag #rope or my Origin  ID simsontherope to find them on the galery ! :)

This is how I make patterns, quick and dirty.
You’ll only need the Create A Pattern tool and image(s) that are seamless and not too big - Colourlovers is a fantastic and easy source.

I really recommend a “working folder” for saving your pattern images and staying organized. I use one on my desktop in this tutorial.

Colourlovers is a bit confusing at first so I have a little how to over here.

  1. Open CAP and click the Add New Sticker button.
  2. Find your folder and image that you want to use then click the checkmark.
  3. Click and drag the image onto the grid. Resize to 256 x 256. You can also rotate or flip the pattern if you want to see different variations.
  4. To preview your pattern, click the circle button with a little camera on it.
  5. From the dropdown menu, select where to preview the pattern. I usually choose Wall 1 and the sofa body. Click Apply for the preview to show.
  6. If you’re satisfied, give yourself a pat on the back and then click the three dots, select Export, name your new pattern and choose a category (this will be the category in which it shows up in game). Click the checkmark and you’re done!

The exported .sims3pack pattern will be in your “Documents \ Electronic Arts \ The Sims 3 \ Exports” folder. Install just like any other .sims3pack and then go check it out in game.

YAY! I hope this is understandable! Let me know if you have any questions.
