VIBRANT APARTMENT // The Sims 4: Speed Build
Hi everybody! It’s Kayla, and welcome back to another speed build in the Sims 4. What is wrong with me? I’m making so many build videos this week. I don’t know, I’m just feeling really inspired, so I built an apartment. I haven’t done an apartment in a super long time either, like I honestly, I don’t remember when I last built an apartment. Wait–did I just do one like last week? Or did I not post it? I know that I built one, but I don’t think I posted it on YouTube. I can’t remember. I was pre-recording, and I know that I built one but I don’t know if I ever ended up posting it, or if I scrapped it or not. Either way. I don’t think I’ve posted an apartment speed build in a while. If I have, I’m very sorry, I’m a liar. But I think it’s been a long time, and I wanted to do this one for my new let’s play in particular, which should be going up soon. Next couple days or so. It’s taking a very long time to get set up because I’m kind of– Hasty and I are both doing separate parts for this ’cause she’s doing a backstory machinima and I’m doing the actual gameplay, and so like I’m kind of waiting for her machinima to finish my stuff, and so it’s like a weird back and forth thing, so I don’t know when I can get it up by. It was supposed to be Tuesday, but like, here we are. And you know I get really stressed when things don’t go up in time, and so like I’m feeling very overwhelmed But hey! We have more speed builds now, so like, it’s a win, you know? Also, it’s storming right now, like pretty badly, so there’s really bad thunder. I don’t know if you can hear it, but like, hey, we love Florida, you know? Yesterday, I was streaming. I was playing Stardew Valley, as I do often times on Wednesdays on stream. And I’ve been live for like 45 minutes or so, and then all of a sudden, my power flickered and then my internet died. And so my PC shut off, and then my internet died, but I was in the middle of streaming, and so my stream just, like, cut off and the whole chat was like, “Uh… Kayla?” and I’m just sitting here like, “Oh my god, my PC! Oh, what am I gonna do?” And it was like a whole crisis, but like it only lasted like 5-10 minutes and then I came back and it was fine but um That happened. So if you were there yesterday, sorry about that. Also, Florida has really weird weather in the Summertime, like it storms every single day at like 3-4 o’clock in the afternoon for like 10 minutes, and then it gets super sunny, and then hotter than normal outside. And it’s like a really bad thunder storm for like 10 minutes, and then it’s just gone. And that’s every single day. And right now it’s 1 p.m. though, and it’s doing this, so like, she’s early, which is great. Thank you, Florida. *laughs* Also, sorry, unrelated to this, weather times, you know? Hey guys! Do you know that storms in Florida? That’s a funny meme. ‘Cause I have a lot of friends that are British, right? Shout-out to you guys. You people love to talk about the weather so much. So whenever it’s like snowing in the UK, or if it’s raining or whatever–if it’s sunny in the UK, like usually, like when it snows for the first time in the winter, or even snows ever because it doesn’t snow much there, or if it’s sunny for like the first time in a long time, they’re like, “Oh my god! It’s sunny in the UK!” and just everyone is talking about it, and it’s so funny, because like I’ll hear like eight times that it’s sunny in the UK and I’m like, “Guys. Did you know that it’s sunny in the UK? Because I’ve heard it eight times!” I think it’s so funny. So did you know that it’s raining in Florida right now? Do you hear this thunder? I don’t know how bad you can hear it, but it’s really, really loud, so I’m sorry about that. It’s like a fun game, though. Will my PC shut off? I don’t know, we’ll see. I mean, it probably won’t. Dear God, I really super hope not. That would be a disaster but yeah! So. *laughs* How was your day? I was gonna talk about how–you saw a second ago there–also, the storm, oh my god, it’s getting worse. I should not be recording this right now. The audio is gonna be so bad I’m so sorry. Actually, I don’t know if you can hear it. You can almost definitely hear it, though. And the rain. It’s raining–it’s like pouring. *singing* It’s raining, it’s pouring, the old man is snoring. No, I was gonna talk about how, like, a few minutes ago at this point now you saw me, like, go out of the household, and then put a sim in here and come back. It’s because I wanted to change the light colors, and you can’t do that in build mode. So I have a request. EA. Listen, I don’t ask you for much. Okay, this is, I think–maybe it’s not simple, I don’t know–but what I think is a very simple request. I don’t care about, like, some big pack you know I don’t care about the things these other people–like I’m not gonna say seasons, but seasons. I mean, I want that. Sure. But like I would prefer to be able to change the color and stuff of lights in build mode Because I don’t want to have to, like, come and put a sim in here and stuff. Because I like to build in the build mode from managed worlds because you have infinite money. You don’t see the numbers going down like you do in this version. I feel like it’s a little bit distracting, Now, I’ve pointed it out, I’m so sorry, but I prefer to not have to have a sim in the household when I build things and I don’t like having to go into game, and then like, change the light colors and stuff, because a lot of the lights have like really weird yellowy tones, or they’re too dim or whatever. I prefer to be able to just change my light colors how I please in build mode. So. If you’re willing to do that for me, EA, please, I love you, I’ve already sold you my soul. Can you just do this one thing for me? Thank you. That’s all I had to say. *laughs* Uh, anyway. I love this. “I’ve already sold you my soul.” I mean it’s not tr–it’s not wrong. I was gonna say, “It’s not true.” I’m not wrong. I did kind of sell my soul to EA. Look at who I am. I’m a simmer. My name–if you guys didn’t know this–I mean, like it sounds like a lie, I swear to god it’s not. My name is Kayla Sims. Like, my last name is Sims. I’ve told stories about this before because people never believe me, because I, like, play Sims for a living, and no one believes me that my name is Sims. But, like, it’s true. I was literally born to sim. I am The Sims, and therefore I, as The Sims, have this one small request. Thank you, good night. But like, my favorite story about this–it’s a pretty recent one too–but back in December I went to the UK to see some of my friends See, I’ve got British friends! What did I tell you? I was going to visit them, it was the first time going over there and I was waiting in line at customs I was alone, by the way, so I was very terrified. I was like sitting there in customs. I’m like freaking out ’cause like I’m a nervous little bean A little bean? What a gross thing I just said. I’m sorry. But I was really like anxious as per usual and stuff. I go up there, hand the guy my passport, and he was like, “What are you doing here?!” He wasn’t this aggressive, I’m sorry. He was like, “So what are you doing over here?” and I was like, “I’m going to see my some of my friends.” And he’s like, “How’d you meet them?” And I was like, oh yikes. “On the internet.” And he’s like, “Where on the internet?” And I had to explain it was on YouTube and then he’s like, “What do you do on YouTube?” and I was like, “Oh, we all make Sims videos.” *laughs* and then he was like, “So did you change your last name to Sims because you play The Sims?” and I was like, oh my god. I wish. I was just born this way. Huh, maybe it’s Maybelline. Maybe … maybe she’s born with it, maybe it’s Maybelline? Is that how the phrase goes? What am I saying? I don’t know, but that was one of funnier “being named Sims” stories. Also, no one ever believes me. Like people–like recently– I’ve told this story recently–because I feel like it just happened, but I was talking to someone at Twitch, and they wanted to send me some Twitch pants–which I’m actually wearing right now, by the way– They’re these–it’s just like Twitch pajama pants. You can buy them on Amazon on their merch store. It’s like glitch-logo Twitch pants. They’re very comfortable. They’re great. They were sending me them. So I had to give her my address and my full name so she can mail me the pants, you know? And I was like–I told her, “Kayla Sims,” and she didn’t believe me. She was like, “Right. Okay. Sure.” And I was like, “No, it’s real! It’s my name! That’s the mailing address you need!” Oh my god. But yeah, it’s a funny meme. But I understand that it seems very unbelievable, and plus like, um… One time, I gave my flight information to EA to go to Sims Camp a couple years ago So, like, I’m going to a Sims event, and I’m like, “Yeah, my name is Kayla Sims. I need my my plane ticket to say Kayla Sims.” Like it sounds so unbelievable, but I don’t know. That’s my name. So. Anyway! *laughs* People can vouch for me. I don’t know. Why am I telling this story again? I feel like I had no intention of telling this story in this video today But yeah–I built–oh! I never even explained the premise behind the apartment So in my new let’s play, one of the sims is going to live here for at least a little bit And she is a celebrity, so she has the Road of Fame Mod kind of stuff going on, and so she’s kind of a big deal living in this nice, little apartment–emphasis on the little– apartment in San Myshuno, and it’s like a vibrant, really colorful, kind of fun, like, apartment ’cause she’s supposed to be young, you know, like really cool, famous gal, and I picture that young famous people have really fun apartments. That’s the dream, right? So she lives here. I don’t know, I haven’t built things like this in a long time. I build a lot of, like, really beige random family homes. So this is kind of a fun, very-different-for-me sort of apartment. So she’s going to live here. That is the plan. But you guys, I think on that note, I’m getting close to the end of the video. I’m gonna go ahead and cut off right here. I’ve built a few things for this series. I also did a CAS of the sim, so I’ll link those things down below, and when the series gets posted, I’ll link that as well. I’ll, like, go in and edit it so you have that But make sure to leave a like and comment and subscribe and do all those fun YoTube things, and in case you guys didn’t know, I post new videos every single day, and so I will see you all tomorrow. Bye, everybody! *wii music* Shoutout to the weather for ruining my video. As I speak, a giant thunder–a giant thunder comes through. Again. I’m so sorry I usually would rerecord this, but I don’t really have time because I’m posting it today, so I’m cutting it real close to my upload time but, hey, you know what, it’s like a fun game, right?
