Playstation “Home Apartment”

image

You get this apartment free when you sign up to PlaystationHome.

The Apartment is one room, but with a veranda featuring views over a harbour.

The Harbour is detailed, cars to & frow, birds fly in the sky, a yatch sails back and forth across the scene.

The veranda is an L shape following around the apartment. There’s room for chairs, though I’m reluctant to set up my chess table as the space is not very wide.

The apartment itself is clear & airy, a studio apartment. There is a glassed roof section with wooden slats which simulates daylight coming into the room making it feel very pleasant indeed. The floor is wooden & as such looks clear & clean.

You access/leave Home apartment either remotely by selecting it from the PlaystationHome navigation bar, or by using the doors to leave the apartment to HomeSquare or by entering the “Apartment building” from Home square.

PlaystationHome Treehouse personal apartment

The Treehouse personal apartment is a two level “Treehouse”, that is to say the apartment is built around the trunk of a tree, at height on a mountain.

The apartment feels like it has 3 floors, as the rooms are not neat square boxes, but more, spaces around the central trunk.

There is a doorway (No door) to a walkway which appears to travel through the mountainside (Could be nice if we could walk along it). This “doorway” used to exit to Home square.

There are two large open window areas (Not glassed) giving views of the mountainside, very picturesque. Waterfalls, done adequately. There are birds flying in the sky & there are tree seeds nicely drawn, a seed, stem & then fluffy bit. The seeds float around across the landscape.

There is an opening at the top of the apartment, around the middle of the trunk, letting light in, the apartment isn’t overly dark, but well imagined as such an apartment might be, patches of light, but overall a somewhat dusky feel.

Background sound is of rushing wind.

Really nice home space.

Le’Chuck’s Pirate ship
image

Set aboard A pirate Ghost ship, a worthwhile personal space.

You get to be at the poop deck high up, as a skeleton crewmember (Non interactive) steers the ship. The ship is imagined to be sailing through underground rivers of lava!!! The sky is red & skeleton birds fly about. Down from the poop deck, another small deck. Down again another deck with a room this time, enter the room, look out the windows & look through a telescope. Down onto the main deck (Where you’ll arrive), there is a pirate crewmember sitting atop of grating. There is a room to one side, which leads to stairs going down into the hold where skeleton chickens walk about. To the other side is a locked room, access is gained through a key game (Not over exciting, but don’t wanna spoiler it for you), this room being considered as Captains quarters I guess J Not very large, but nice & private, I have a pirate bed, ornate sofa a studio light & a camera in there, not the most practical place for the camera, but I guess I like my privacy. One final set of stairs leads to one final deck at the rear of the ship. The key game unlocks a music game, 1 tune, which I listen to quite happily for a while.

Background noise is creaking and moaning, & chickens squawk J

Cutteridge estate clubhouse

PlayStation(R)Home Picture 21-06-2013 13-14-48

Cutteridge estate clubhouse is my favourite estate. It’s about the right size, an old house with Library, dining room, entrance hall, side room, leading to thekitchen, then from the entrance hall we can also go upstairs to find 2 small plain rooms sitting opposite each other, a veranda overlooking the entrance to the house. Then there’s a bathroom, unfurnished, I put the ‘Modern lines bath’ in there, then we have an attic room with eaves, two windows, and thereis a secret passage in there (spoiler). next we goto the main bedroom, pretty large, 2 windows, one big main window, then a kooky little side passage leads to another window, this time small and stained glass., we can also step out here onto another veranda. The last room upstairs is the secret locked room. If we go back downstairs, either side of the staircase is a small passage, down the left hand side is a secret room with mini game.

Lockwood Dream Island

Wasted Potential

Pros

Reasonable standard in artwork (not the sharks)

“A” nice room upstairs, I made into a T.V room…

I like sitting on the bench at the end of the jetty.

Cons

UPSIDEDOWNROCKSINTHEWATER I mean why?

A yatch…. that we cannot go on, we cannot sit on the end of the yatch?

NO TIDE!!!!

The sharks are the wrong size, not drawn too well, terrible motion, stiff and jerky THEY ARE

THE ARCHETYPAL FISH! Fish live in water, swim in water, they should behave animated

gracefully in water.

There is a cave,,, nowhere to sit? ledges that we cannot climb on… no fire?

Feed the fish, I don’t like the fish, I would be feeding the fish to the sharks.

So many “invisible walls”, unable to move freely around the space.

Walking up to the barbeque area, such jerky movement going up the steps and generally climbing

onto rocks, or not being able to as the case may be.

The swimming pool has a ladder at one side, but can we use it to climb out? You put a ladder and

then say “Oh, but you can’t use it”

Thereis a speedboat moored, but we cannot go speedboating!

Square tree trunks!

Night/day, the nighttime, such an awful half light.

Really nicely drawn corals, but we cannot dive and swim around them.

Cannot walk along the sea bed.

Swimming animation is horrid.

We get to look through the telescope…. at? at what? No nesting birds on the upside down rocks in

the distance? No chance to look at a starry sky? The scope of the telescope again, potential closed

off/ignored.

Abysmally ugly concrete, cos that’s what I want in my nature haven, “concrete”, nice and grey and

bland.

I rated this space terrible, its not that there is no potential, but more that any potential is walled off

or just ignored.

Nighttime could be the dead of night, but with a full moon, sitting at the end of the jetty, or going

to the beach and seeing Turtles laying eggs, seeing the babies hatching and running for the sea.

There could be bats in the cave that fly out at dusk.

I bought this space to get xp points…. This is one space I would gladly accept a refund if offered

what a waste of space.
