Man, so far these themes are right up my alley! Boho, in general, is possibly my favorite style ever. And I love boho mexican in TS4 :)

Question - Is Boho and folk art considered the same or are they a bit different?

I personally would say different. Boho is a lot of fabric,various patterns (lots of pillows, blankets, table scarves, etc) and lots of natural materials (woods, wicker, clay). Think hippie/gypsy, more so than folk art. Some folk art definitely fits in with boho, but there is a difference for sure.

hammie I would consider some folk art items boho. As long as they're not primitive, as some folk art is. And if you use it sparingly.

Can we put it on a foundation?

Also are doors interior doors or can they also be outside doors?

kittymew Yes it can be built on a foundation and at least one of the doors must be located in the interior.

Sorry I have another question! Rather get it right now than get deductions for it later!
I asume we can't add walls in the interior? Can we add pieces from buggys niche set to act as wall partitions?

Can the doors be archways? I'm guessing yes, since it's basically a door without a door, lol.

peach Yes, you may use Buggy’s niches. And no you may not add any actual walls.
Yes, you can use arches.
Keep the questions coming! No question is too small.

Such beautiful entries guys!  doggie


Does anyone has any tips on how to move and rotate the camera smoothly in Sims 4? It literally took me more than 3 hours to take decent screenshots and I'm not even completely satisfied. When I press < and > once the camera doesn't rotate at all and I have to press for a couple of seconds to make the camera move and then it moves more than I'd like. I hope that makes sense, it's kinda hard to explain.

Xoneirox,i think in TS4 are 2 types of camera:TS4 and TS3 version.Maybe you have the newer version selected?For rotating camera in TS3 and TS2 i've used the middle button.There (http://modthesims.info/d/536953) is camera mod what can maybe help you.

Xoneirox, I use the sims 3 camera mode when taking pics.  Click on the camera and choose the sims 3 camera.  When in live mode, with game paused, hit the tab key, this will put you in camera mode.

Moving your mouse left or right with turn you in that direction

Use Q key to move down
Use E key to move up
Use A key to move left
Use D key to move right
Use S key to move forward
Use W key to move backwards
Use X key to expand view
Use Z key to zoom

Press the ESC key to get out of camera mode.

I hope this helps.

Thanks dear! That's actually really helpful, I knew about x and z but had no idea about the other shortcuts. Hugs

use the sims 3 camera, but hit the TAB button to go into movie mode, camera moves better, .... I also found that if you put a sim in the lot, taking pics works better, movie mode only works when you use a sim in game..just tell them to go somewhere out of screen shot..and use the Motherlode cheat in live mode   crystalheart crystalheart
