These intricate Sims 4 builds basically look like screenshots from Dragon Age: Inquisition

one is still missing Age of Dragon 4 release date in sight, and we’re all dealing with it in our own way. I have my eye on my copy of Tevinter Nights for a second reading. Meanwhile, a more diligent Dragon Age fan, KawaiiFoxita, is recreating Dragon Age Inquisition locations within The Sims 4, and these gorgeous buildings are making me homesick for Thedas.

I remembered KawaiiFoxita’s Inquisition-inspired builds thanks to SimsCommunity, which highlighted this latest build inspired by the Skyhold tavern room where his devious sidekick Sera hangs out. I’ll admit I didn’t spend much time with Sera, so I had to load up my old save to check out her bard block for comparison, and boy, did Foxita nail the cozy, cluttered interior.

As an avid but amateur Sims 4 builder, I can only imagine all the time Foxita spent carefully placing all the books, baskets, and decorative pillows. It takes a lot of effort to make a room look perfectly cluttered.

As you can imagine, no, this heraldry banner of the Inquisition is not native to The Sims 4. There is no official Dragon Age-inspired game pack – although I would certainly be happy to have one. Instead, many of the items contained in this compilation are Sims 4CCcontent modified in-game by many other creators.

I remember first encountering Foxita’s builds last year when they shared one inspired by the party’s first base, Haven. I immediately sent it to a friend whose first reaction, like mine, was “isn’t that a screenshot of the Inquisition?” The Sims 4 may not be able to support a complete one-to-one recreation, but Foxita’s aesthetic is really on point. Just look at all those snowy pine trees in the background.

Foxita has even more Inquisition-inspired builds: one based on the elven ruinsan inspired by Solas’ roomand oh, a little mass effect also.

All in all, Foxita’s builds are just making me crave the excitement that leads to the next game in a series I’ve been with since the beginning. The wait for Dragon Age 4 has been a long one, and I’m no stranger to being the resident Dragon Age idiot in the room, but it’s a good reminder that there are plenty of other fans at the crossroads between Dragon Age and the Sims building — a diagram of Venn bigger than you think.

I’m already excited to see what new locations Dragon Age 4 takes us to in Tevinter, and how talented Sim builders end up imagining them.
