What have you done with the Gypsy Fortune Teller Shop?

Last year the Halloween event focused on zombies, but this year we have ghosts. Who better to communicate with the spirits from the great beyond then a gypsy fortune teller? It is only after you finish the construction on her shop that you notice all of the ghosts that are haunting your town.

It’s been a few days, so let’s see a few examples of this building incorporated into Springfield.

Instead of just posting a bunch screenshots, I’m going to add a little commentary as well. Many of these design layouts are particularly interesting, and make it a treat to see the creativity of other players while you’re popping ghosts and haunting buildings in their town.

Seeing Superintendent Chalmer’s 1979 _ONDA parked next to the shop makes me think he is curious about his own future, or perhaps the future of the failing school system.

Do you think there is a sign somewhere in the shop that says, “No, we don’t know when the next myPhone is coming out. Please stop asking.”

A simple design with some festive, and spooky decorations. I can’t help but to feel as if the shop is located at the top of a hill, as it’s proximity to the Springfield Falls gives it that illusion.

If you get a Tarot card reading, and you draw the Death card at least the church and cemetery are close by. Though are you really going to trust someone who shares the block with a pumpkin house?

The glow of the Nighthawk Diner, the wooden fences, and the evergreen trees really paint the picture of an isolated and spooky area. The additional empty parking spots also make this feel a bit more eerie.

House of the future. House of the present. House of the… produce?

I got a chuckle out of seeing the House of Evil next to the DMV. I’m sure Patty and Selma would approve of the zoning of this block. Maybe they visit the shop after work to get their fortunes told.

Why is their a fortune teller shop way out in the middle of the woods? Is it even real, or is it just an illusion? The angel statues and all of the foliage compliment this design nicely.

Placing this shop on an island makes it feel abandoned, especially with all the dead trees. The mausoleum next door makes me think that maybe they aren’t open for business.

  1. Wonderful work! This is the kind of information that are supposed
    to be shared around the net. Disgrace on the search engines for
    no longer positioning this submit upper! Come on over and consult with my
    web site . Thanks =)

  2. I place the fortune teller house in the forest between cletus’ and calmwoods mental hospital and added pumpkin patches around it. I have a LOT of pumkins..

  3. Haha, loved your thoughts on it. For this building I tried to incorporate monkey island (the game series which i loved and still love) into springfield by making it resemble the vodoo lady’s house from the swamp. Gipsy fortune teller, vodoo lady… same shenanigans :)

  4. Love these pic posts, they’re great for inspiration if I don’t have an immediate idea what to do with a building. For example: my gypsy shop is currently hiding debris, and not well. My pumpkin house is cute though! P.S. I like that the shop comes with built in parking spaces. Even though there’s no one driving, I’m obsessed with making sure there’s ample parking in my SF, and this will save me 4×8 squares. :)

  5. I like this commentary you have done on them! Gives a great insight and makes it easier to imagine a town, even if your description isn’t what the creator intended. That’s whats good, everyone has a different imagination!
