Mother Russia was released on The Sims 3 Store in November 21st 2013. The original price of this set is 1,900 SimPoints (it’s on sale right now and sale price is 1,600 SimPoints). Sale ends on 12/03/13. I am really in love with the CAS assets! They are so beautifully done, well designed and have the Russian touch. I hope you enjoy the rest of my Review!
There are some amazing architectural pieces (roof decorations) which will allow you to create gorgeous-looking lots! Although there are less Buy/Build mode objects, the roof decorations are really nice. Oh, and don’t forget to enable winter in your game, the roof decorations look amazing in snow! I think it was creative to put the architectural pieces. Also, there are no furniture included with this set. I’m kind of tired of seeing the same sofa, chairs and other stuff. I’m glad the Store made something different this time. There is no new premium content included with this set. There are 20 CAS assets and 11 Buy/build mode objects.They didn’t include any furniture in this set but if you have other sets such as Drifter’s Desire,Morocco Mystique,you can create any type of Russian lot you desire. The Store added clothing for the teens this time but the sad part is there is only one for them…
i must say, the CAS assets are the best we’ve got to far from the Store. The clothing for females are so well-designed. What upsets me is that there is only one CAS asset for teen sims but however there are several recolors of it. At least the Store added something for the teens this time! There are no clothing for toddlers but I think it isn’t necessary cause if they included something for toddlers, it must have been outerwear and we got outerwear for toddlers in the previous set (Grandpa’s Grove.) Here are some screenshots,I hope you enjoy seeing them:
Primo Prinrt Pants
I love the name of this asset! Also love the design of the outfit.
Triple Band Shirt and Leggings
I just love this outfit for teens! I love the different recolors of it and also the rose stencil! The second recolor is amazing.
Primo Print Pants
This printed pant is for teens.I have no complaints for this one!
Darling Day Dress
This is my favorite outfit from this set so far! I just love how it is designed and the recolors of it are perfectly done so 5 STARS to this one!
Triple Band Shirt and Leggings
This one is enabled for teens also.So,same opinion. I love the rose stencil.
Eight Button Trench Coat
I think the red tights just doesn’t match with the outfit.
Fantastic Floral Dress and Jacket
I love the third recolor of this one! Really gives the Russian feel. Don’t you think it has a bit Japanese touch in it too?
I love this one as well! Adding the robe was a great idea!
Really cute outfit! Some recolor might make it look good though.
Faux Fox Cuff Outfit
This one is them most elegant,modern outfit.I give this 5 STARS!
Wool Trench Coat
Really gives the business and wintry feel! I love the different recolors of it.
Chelovyek Floral Print Jacket
hose designs downwards look a bit tacky but the third and fourth recolor is awesome!
Bountiful Buttons Jacket
Great jacket for younger sims!
I love this boots! I think it will look awesome in winter
Becoming Blazer and V-Neck
Not really a fan of studs and spikes,I feel bad for my Sims wearing it! Poor Mario! (No,he’s not that Mario.)
Sarafan Tank Top
I think the Store worked hard on this one cause there are so many designs I can see! Great outfit for children!
BUY/BUILD MODE OBJECTS
As you can see,most of them are roof decorations,windows etc.These include roof decor objects only. No Russian themed furniture or anything
Here’s a Toy store I built using this set.Just to let you know that this is just an example.This lot isn’t included with the set,I just built it for fun and to show you how the objects look I know it doesn’t look Russian but just wanted to try out something new with these objects.They do look well with the colorful walls.
A Toy Store Built Using This Set
Even though this set contains less objects, I think these objects are different from any other Store content. The Buy/Build mode objects are great as well,I love the new roof decorations. Normally, I don’t use them but I just couldn’t resist this time! I love the CAS assets as well. However, there is only one clothing for teens which made me sad but apart from that, I loved everything. I had a great time reviewing this set.Score- 9.5/10. Kudos, The Store team!
