So finally it's here! If I had to give thisa name it'd be called:
Show your true (house) colours! Pretty Clever, eh?

Included in the collection are:

4 recolours of Kativip's garland
4 recolours of this flag by Kativip
5 (plus a slightly more faded Gryffindor one) shields
4 recolours of this Uni mesh
and 4 of another Uni one.
Everything's compressorized, a collection file and the meshes are included.

Now lets see how I used them. ;)
Click play to get in the right magical mood! ;)



Please bear with me as I'm eagerly working on releasing all the stuff.
I have a whopping 220 files to wade through (and that's without meshes, yes) and pack in to little christmassy gift collection files, so I have absolutely no idea where to start! There's the dungeons, the Great Hall, the dorms, the common rooms, the class rooms, the hospital wing, the library aso....HELP!

Anyway, if you're one of those people like me who always kind of thought "Gosh, a Harry Potter neighbourhood that would be rad, but where do I even start??" here are a few links that helped me tons while building my own Hogwarts:

Basically everything Adele has ever made - YOU.WILL.NEED.IT, believe me!

Kativip's stuff was mighty useful, too.

Since the magical world is kind of set in this pre-electricity time, medieval stuff was needed, lots of it!

The go-to source obviously, they have LOTS of great stuff.
Lama has the best walls and floors.
This list was a lifesaver!
An alchemy set with some quite useful knick-knacks, fireplaces and my fav book cases, too.

Then there is the whole lot of Sims Medieval conversions, Roman did lots and so did Chimerical. Clutter-a-holic has the best, well...clutter.

Bodyshop stuff for your Hogwart-lings that I like:

Cloudlessnights made a very good uniform with cloak at MTS.

I really love this suit with the jacket by Yuxi in combinations with one of Daislias Hogwarts scarfs! (they're adult only obviously, my students are YA since I built Hogwarts as a university)

Chaz' Hermione has a neat Hogwarts sweater/tie/shirt combo included
(I'm not very talented when it comes to Bodyshop, but I should tackle this thing at some point and make it unisex and in all house colors)

If you've got all these things you are basically ready to go, but keeping an eye open for sets with little knick-knacks that could be useful and potentially magical is a must! ;)

Then there's always the difficulty of actually building Hogwarts. Lots of people have managed to do so, I tried to build my own, more or less successfully. I wanted to have it as one lot without my laptop crashing and burning, so I had to scale down a bit. It's not perfect, cause I'm horrible at building but it does the job (the entrance to the Slytherin common room is through the potions class room, cough, haha). Personally, I would give it a try and build it to your likings and at a size your computer can handle, otherwise have a look at the ones I linked.

Alright, bye for now, I'll hopefully have the first set up next week, so stay tuned!
