Back in April, we got a hint at an upcoming store set which was supposed to tie into the Mansion & Garden theme along with the Bohemian Garden. Although we ultimately lost the L-shaped staircases from this set due to a serious bug when the staircases in the Prism Art Studio are used (considering the bugs we’d get otherwise this being labelled as any kind of big deal must mean it did some pretty creepy stuff).
The Now & Then Century Manor gives us a few interesting build items like roof decor, broken and boarded up windows/doors (we also get new and broken versions of everything needed to create a screened in porch), modular grand staircases, and beautiful stained glass windows (whoch may actually be recolourable! Huzzah!). There’s also two versions of the venue. One looks really old and dilapidated (Now) and the other is really pretty and well kept (Then). I like this idea as it really fits the theme of the set well and puts both the Now and the Then set items to good use.

I haven’t been following this as closely as I thought I would, but that’s partially due to my mind always being on class. I actually haven’t played TS3 in almost 2 weeks now (but I decided to tonight to clear my mind a bit, this short film animatic needs a major change and I’m hitting dead ends). The name of the venue is the Prism Art Studio and it comes out on February 6th!
In any case, whoever was hypothesizing about jewelry making and perfume was certainly right!
I’ m not keen on certain items but the fact that things are in sets is a good sign. Still, look at the selection! 8 new necklaces, 4 sets of earrings and 4 new bangles.
And that’s not all…
We’re getting a glass blowing station of some sort which enables not just jewelry and perfume bottles, but glass furniture and decor as well (who else is ogling the stained glass?). There’s even a glass chess set (might look good if you picked up the ice lounge with seasons).
Oh but wait! There’s MORE! (This is going to allow some beautiful custom content guys)
I’ve personally been DYING for these kinds of stairs! They’re really wrapping up alot of old requests (but I’d still have been happier if they’d come in an ep or something, with all the premium content and clothing sets that came out after ITF they could’ve just released a freetime or hobbies ep with a couple of new careers and professions, there’s almost that much stuff).
And even I’m getting excited 😉
Following that link will bring you to the official sneak peak thread for the store set/PC items! We’ve seen Sims sitting out in front of the bistro trying to decide what to eat, and now we have an indoor shot of the same. Hopefully this means the item(s) will work on any lot!
