Firstly I have great (great!!) admiration for all of the modders, I have so many of them and they have really transformed my game play!!!
I would love it if anyone was able to take up my suggestion (challenge maybe) of the following ...
(Just to confirm, I do know that there are 3 different, and somewhat close, housing options that I am wanting, and I have already posted in the modders threads to see if they can update their mod, but, I am wanting to know if a new one can be made
I love these houses, I only found them today!! They remind me of the "Bathing Boxes" here in Australia. I have wonderful memories of these 'boxes'.
Originally used as Ladies' changing sheds along the beaches of Victoria's coast line, people now store their beach equipment (chairs, blankets, umbrellas, surfboards), camping etc, some have minibars & bedding, and toilets, bathrooms in them. I know people who have used them to camp in.
I would love to see something like this in game, maybe even related to the "Small Town Row Houses" by @kid1293
I would put them along the lake shoreline, so allowing for water or land tiles (like the fisherman shack, and the Coastal Houses by @Wintin)
Fabulous ... so many ideas now, haha!!
As you can see they are not cheap!! Upwards of $150,000AUD ...
I might go jump in Kid's thread about his town houses too.
I think you get the artistic idea
1) As above, small single family of 4 (maybe 6, if a "tent" was added), "Bathing Boxes" or "Beach Huts".
To run along the beach, lake shoreline. Bright & colourful, interlinked & separate, a cross between the "Coastal Houses" & "Tiny Row Houses".
2) Water Houses, like in Malaysia and other beach resort locations.
These would be small, large and super house sizes. 4 -> 8 people in each. 2 families even as a lot accommodate for large family vacations.https://www.overwaterbungalows.net/water-villas-in-asiahttps://au.pinterest.com/pin/8866530493836227/http://www.roomcritic.com/hotel-resort-reviews/asia/malaysia/kapalai-island/sipadan-kapalai-dive-resort/photo-video-gallery.htmlhttps://www.overwaterbungalows.net/berjaya-langkawi-resort-malaysiahttp://luxuryhomeinterior.com/zt/218098174/house/218098/http://www.travelplusstyle.com/magazine/the-top-15-our-ultimate-list-of-the-best-luxury-resorts-in-the-maldives
As you can see they have a lot of function, range in colour and can be placed in water or land.
3) Houseboats, like they have on the Murray River
Sleeping room varies, from 2 (couple) up through to 12. Standard in 8 in most, but I've seen many boats with 12 plus.
Also, there are restaurant ones. The idea would be like the Market BBQ etc, but on a boat https://www.murrayriverpaddlesteamers.com.au/our-fleet/ps-emmylou/http://murrayriverhouseboats.com.au/fleet/https://www.visitthemurray.com.au/accommodation/houseboats?gclid=CMm93eqw-NACFYaSvQodB7YEkAhttp://allseasonshouseboats.com.au/http://www.richriverhouseboats.com.au/
Ok, not sure my little Bannites can have hot spas, haha, but at least a floating bed
4) a Fishing village
A combination of option 2, the Beach Resort Water House, but with fishing, so creating a fishing dock, but with adding a bedroom/home extension.
And have it lake buildable, using a "water" tag (i don't know a thing about modding, but using the same tags as a bridge and @Discrepancy
upgradeable bridge so you can fish from it. It has occurred to me to fill a lake with those bridges, haha. (Yes, I know there is a flatten terrain mod, I use it every village, but I like to see a water based house & lake fishing hut )
Thanks everyone for having a look at my ideas!!
