    this may have been done before but I thought this was so frigging fantastic that I had to show the creativity.

    the picture doesn't show the globe spinning with the static ring around it. just amazing. the house sign says he's remodeling in a week! this just went up either yesterday or today.

    Exploiter! How much more blatant can you get? The globe was never meant to be used as a planet, and a battle axe as a space ship? Come on devs! This is an open display of using things in game for purposes other then what they were intended for. BAN HIM!!!!

    Hey! I'm not done yet. Thanks for the props guys, I'm working on the lander/sat tower and astronaut today, we'll see how that goes. I'd like to be open for business in a week or so, I'm gonna do some fun space themed costumes for the vendors as well, so if anyone has any ideas pass em along. I think princess leia will work out nicely what with the bun hairstyle and a white robe, darth vader will be a snap with all black...so yeah, we'll see. ;)

    I must have just missed you building because I found the basket with five lil goza's in it. I picked it up to safe guard it! the top left comet combo blew my mind let alone the complex ones. thank you Sarsmi, you inspire us.

    I can't decide if this should be called "House Design & Deco" or more like "Backpack Art" on a much larger scale. Either way - it's a very artistic rendering. :) It really is in a class of it's own.

    Even though I'm not a big fan of space themes... that is awe inspiring.

    Totally cool Sarsmi...

    Aww, you guys are so sweet. I was going to go with a heaven themed vendor house but I really didn't feel inspired by it. So I talked to Vol for a while and got really excited about doing a space theme. What can I say, using hundreds of goza mats gets me going. :D

    I'm a little bit worried, but not very much so - I placed the gozas so they could not block the house next door, basically the effect is the same if I were to have made four stories worth of flat wall. I could have gone higher but then it would start to cover the walkway behind. So I think it's probably kosher.

    I've been trying to discount the ineffable awesomeness of Sarsmi...stop giving my opponents ammunition, e.g., the image above!

    Love it!

    I haven't played in quite a while so I don't recognize all of the elements...what are those large round items used for the astronaut helmet, and on the star field?

    The star field looks great, some of those items are perfect for conveying the idea of nebula, stars, etc. and using the gray dyes in particular on items such as the dart boards, worked out great for the theme.

    I particularly like the flag, lunar module/tower, and the little green UFO.

    Another impressive display of creativity, Sarsmi. :)

    Fantastic!.... FYI I was listening to MIA's Space Odyssey track (There's Space For Ol-Dat-I-See) when I popped open this thread. The song is now permanently etched in my brain with the OP's pic.... dunno if I'm too happy about that....

    I loooove this house!

    In the SW corner of Baja Luna, there's also and McDonalds and an aquarium that are fun and worth a look too. I can't imagine what Luna would look like if Sarsmi and the creator of the other two had possession of more plots! Amazing!!

    Here I go again on my own
    Goin' down the only road I've ever known
    Like a drifter I was born to walk alone...carrying a backpack full of goza mats and a house decor tool...

    *coughs*



    MAHAHAHA!!

    A before-peek at my blueprints for the house next door to the lunarscape:

    [​IMG]

    Most likely the rocket will end up thinner and not as tall (or pink, the colors are for contrast so I know where things will end up). I may have to redo the lunarscape floor with grey goza instead of carpet, since I had to raise all the carpet up by 1 tile so it wouldn't show lines, which means the vendors are all hovering 2 tiles above the floor. And since I'll be selling this house I can't see the new owner wanting to go through the process of placing each vendor above the floor.

    Of course the upside to that is I can put back in the little hill I had on the west side, which will help cover up the black night sky gap, and make the landscape a little more interesting. This time I'm definitely doing the sky features first, it'll be a lot easier to raise them up off the floor than use ladders and goza mats and tables to get them where I want.

    Whew. After this I'm going to plop down an 18x18 somewhere and do my next *surprise* project that I've been looking forward to. So excited! :thumbup1:

    Haha, I don't plan everything. But if it's something big and I don't want to redo it three or four times over then I have to make a plan. BTW got the walls up and the sky features, also redid the floor in more of a taupe, moved the stalagmite around...It was much faster going on the smaller plot since I already had the practice. So glad the gozas are up! Right now I just need to do the rocketship and a few other things and it'll be done. Whew!
