Expansion: Do-It-Yourself

Expansion: Do-It-Yourself
I would really like to see an expansion pack where Sims can improve their houses themselves - or hire workers to do it.

The Build Mode would offer the choice between two options - Instant Build (which would function as regular build mode) or Plan. Walls, staircases, windows and other stuff built in the Plan mode would be visible as blueprints - blue and transparent.

A household Sim - or a hired NPC Sim - would work at the planned structures until they are finished. The total cost for planning, and having a hired NPC constructing, would then slightly less than the cost of instant building. If the household Sims do the job themselves, they would save even more money, but lose time. (A family of really handy Sims would however be able to improve a house, improve it and sell it for a good profit.)

Building walls, staircases etc would practice Handiness. Creating floor and wall covering would practice Painting, and creating plants would practice Gardening.

Other features that would fit well into this expansion pack:
* Architecture career
* Pottery and Sewing
* Carpenter's bench for making furniture
* Laundry
* Protective clothing (used for construction, workbenches and gardening)

What do you think?

I would really love to be able to change the colour of my fences, and also change the colour of the glass on doors and glass fences etc Smile

Re: Expansion: Do-It-Yourself
This is a great idea!

I just thought of something funny;
You know how the NPC's are sometimes bad and do a bad job?
Well what if the hired NPC did a bad job on the staircase and then
one night when a sim was going up they fell through the board! XD

Re: Expansion: Do-It-Yourself
A Sim falling through the staircase, that would be funny to watch, then they would have to be run to Hospital and depending on how serious the fall was, the Sim would have to stay on bed rest for a certain amount of time and needed to be waited on by either another member of the house or an NPC Home Nurse or something. And if they broke a leg they would need crutches, and if your Sim was walking down the street with crutches, Mean Spirited or Evil Sims can steal the crutches or something, (wow, that's evil) and what if as Sims get to the late stages of being an Elder, they need a walking cane? Good idea?!

Re: Expansion: Do-It-Yourself
When I first started playing sims I thought thats how it really worked. How wrong I was...

Interesting idea, though Smile
