I have a new favorite hang out sim. Gates of Melancholy, by Shelley70.
Beautiful landscapes, lots of nice scenes for photography, all inspired by American artist Andrew Whyeth.
Wyeth was one of the most influential 20th century US painters, known for his realism and crisp style. His work conveys solace, decrepitude, isolation as well as a sense of place and permanence, often in monochromatic watercolor. You will find a great overview on the official Andrew Wyeth website.
