Hey everyone! Sorry for the long waits for slack signups, they have been taken care of! Everyone who has been waiting for one should have just gotten a message from slack to the email you submitted! Hope to chat with you soon
I used to put all sims and horses together in one massive family. Well, that wasn't such a good idea of mine as it crashed my game and corrupted my save file.
From that point I decided to keep al my horses and sims saved in the sim bin and back them up frequently. For my stables I have a save file with the fully finished center and when I want to do something in game, I just drop a family in and take the horses/sims out of the bin which I need. For this I do make use of a horse friendly world but I might soon switch to a personal one.
So, I don't really play with my sims and horses the way it's meant to be. My facilities are basically just one big photo studio spread over different lots. As I have two stables, both of the facilities are on seperate save files.
As you can see in the pictures bellow (this is Iron Crest, my main stable) I spread my facilities over 4 lots. The main stable being located on the first lot with a secondary barn with small stallion section on the lot to the right of the main barn. The lot to the left has the training grounds with dressage arena and show jumping course and the lot on the back is my indoor arena.
My other stable has kind of the same idea. Though this isn't focused on the big three disciplines (Dressage, jumping and eventing) but more on Endurance. Again, these facilities have the main barn near the entrance, with a secondary stallion barn in the back together with and all purpose outdoor arena and lunging circle. To the right of the main barn we have an XC course and upper left has the indoor arena.
I share these pictures because there are many different ways to make your EC and I think everyone does differently/has their preffered style.
@Eowyn-Vance if that's not the mood right now, I don't know what is! Much love to you and @Clementine-Laake, my heart is so full from the love and support of some of the amazing people I've met through this community
Thought i would start this up again!! I have some very exciting news! I am expecting a new edition to the team with the birth of my first homebred foal! The sire is the 2018 world champion young dressage stallion Revolution who is with Helgstrand dressage out of our very unique Hanoverian mare Highrail Marionette! Etta is a stunning bay dominant white mare and is about 260 days in the first photo and 280 in the second most recent photo! Baby is due November 21st, not long to go now!
I have the game and tried to play it a few times.
But I quickly stopped playing it because of the servers. Either you end up in a server full of carebears and crybabies that get all upset when you attack and kill another player or the servers are so strict because they have a hundred rules you've got to follow that you get no fun from playing the game because you're too worried about breaking a rule that getting kicked and banned from that server.
Maybe that has all changed now and the player base is much better? I don't know. But it put me off playing the game very quickly, and I haven't touched it since.
EDIT: I FORGOT TO MENTION THAT I WAS CHECKING FOR MYSELF ACH
I deleted the text originally saying “putting these here to test if there’s any differences” but I; a slight dumbass, forgot to put it back in.
Though, no, it’s not my own monitor settings, my monitor settings are at default, and when viewing the photos on an Iphone X, they look just like they do on my new computer
@Eowyn-Vance I swear it affects colour, (yet again, dumb country boy here, bare with me on my shenanigans) I talked to my dad about it who works in engineering and computer technology and he explained the whole DPI affecting the colour of the image to me, since newer devices do show the images in proper colour
