Seinfeld, Friends, The Golden Girls, and Arrested Development have been given the Sims 4 treatment by one player eager to recreate some of the US' best-known sitcoms within the new game.
Released the week of Sept 2 on Windows PC, and with a Mac version in development, The Sims 4 gives players extended opportunity to create their own range of simulated human beings, design and build accommodation for them to live in, and chaperone them through the ups and downs of their simulated social and professional lives.
Working under the name "ian8000," one Ian Roach carefully reconstructed the dwellings of some of the USA's best-known comedy shows of the last 30 years.
As well as detailed panoramas of each location, fans of set design and interior architecture can see through elevated shots how Roach turned studio facades into workable living spaces, with surprisingly few voids required from room to room. — AFP/Relaxnews 2014
