Building Hacks for the Sims 4

Building Hacks for the Sims 4

Lately, I’ve been getting back into the Sims 4. It’s been about a year since I played with my virtual family, made up of an incredibly ginger me and two randoms. So, instead of picking up where I left off, I decided to start fresh.

Which of course meant I needed a new house.

I recently picked up a few of the older expansions for my game, City Living and Cats and Dogs. And with so many new housing items and possibilities, I wanted to try something I hadn’t really before: I wanted to build my own house from scratch. Continue reading “Building Hacks for the Sims 4”

It’s Ninja Time: My Diablo 3 Melee Demon Hunter Build

It’s Ninja Time: My Diablo 3 Melee Demon Hunter Build

I know I’ve said this before, but honestly, I think the biggest chunk of Diablo 3’s replay value comes from the seasons it regularly runs.

I mean. How could I really be annoyed about a game known for being entirely block-based having blocks? Continue reading “How I Discovered Minecraft Barrier Blocks”

Housing Hacks for Final Fantasy XIV

Housing Hacks for Final Fantasy XIV

So you may have noticed from the Projects page here at the Girly Geek that I’m mildly obsessed with the housing aspect of Final Fantasy XIV.

Or, as Shane calls it, my better-looking Minecraft.

I thought I had everything all figured out when I started planning which couches I wanted to arrange around my fireplace. When I discovered Alice’s House Designs in Final Fantasy XIV, though, I realized I had only scratched the surface of what I could do. Continue reading “Housing Hacks for Final Fantasy XIV”
