We have chosen to do it probably and wait a few weeks. Don’t worry we have not forgotten you.

The Sims’ planet is facing an inconvenient truth: the cities are overflowing with pollution and toxic waste. They have reached a point of no return, it is now or never to make a change! The leaders gathered for a desperate meeting and together they decided that it’s time to get rid of the old and in with the new. Wind, water and sun are now the primary sources of electricity and the old cars are replaced with bio fuel and batteries.

They need help and have called you to help them come up with a new type of home: The home of the future!

Do you have a eco-architect in you?

A magic fairy just gave you a bottomless moneybag with all the money you’ll ever need in your life. She also made you 22 and drop-dead gorgeous,but that’s another challenge.You’ve decided that some of that unlimited money could be put to good use on a second home, somewhere to retire to after a stressful day of shopping, shopping, and more shopping. You look through vacation home listings and see a place on the beach, a chalet in the mountains, a luxury flat in a big city, a mansion in the Hamptons, a Tudor cottage at Salisbury, and several other places.
