Reclaimed Gymnasium Flooring



When I got CL I was very excited for all the build mode content. Then I found the awesome flooring. Tru to its name, it looked like it had 100 layers of lacquer on it just like my old school gym floor did. The colours weren't very usable either. So I took the texture, edited it, toned the specular way down then did a bunch of recolours and voila! Another usable floor for my homes.

The build mode item features:
  • Basegame compatible
  • 24 style variations
  • Custom thumbnails
  • found in Wood Flooring category of Build Mode
  • costs $4
  • Credit to FaerieDustSims and pooklet for the actions and colour palette that formed the basis for these styles

Hamptons Getaway - Bathroom Addon


Well my first foray into bathroom sets, Serenity Bathroom, was a huge learning curve. I said to myself I would not make another, but I fooled myself. I really needed a more classic/contemporary style bathroom for my colonial style homes so I had to make one. This is also another example of what I plan to do in the future: build on the basic sets I have already made if inspiration strikes. I have already done that with Atwood Dining, which is an add-on to the living room set of the same name. I am quite proud how it came out and now I have a bathroom for most occasions.

Nordshine Seating - City Living Add-on



With The addition of the new EP, there was quite a few items that were nice........... but needed more variations and style additions. One of those sets was the NordShine Single and Double, an armchair and love seat respectively. They had a solid design, some nice colours, but as usual, there was no 'full set' of seating which does limit its usability. Well I went about fixing that with this add-on set where I not only added some more colours, but also 3 other seating options: a symmetrical love seat, 3 seat sofa, and a bench seat. This brings the total number in this set from 2 to 5. Very much an improvement.

Simple Siding Wall Set





I only make walls when I am in the mood or desperately need them. Walls are tedious to make and its hard to appreciate the effort required once they are finished since 2/3 of the work is hidden most of the time when you use them. But i needed more siding for my Willow Creak makeover, so I pushed through and made this set of four walls with 12 styles. These walls now give me plenty of options for siding (which was really lacking) and the hard work paid off.
I have bundled them together by type, so both clapboard walls are in the one archive below, and same with the Board and Baton styles. The packages are clearly named if you don't want one of the types included.

The build mode item features:
  • Basegame compatible
  • Each comes in auto-trim, no trim, and left&right trim (for those pesky 1 tile corners)
  • 44 colour options
  • Custom thumbnails
  • Walls found in Siding category of Build Mode
  • Costs $4
  • All wall heights available

Sleek and Swept Hair for Guys



What is this? Hair? Well yes it is. Guys are always in need of more hair. This one came from dine out but was kids only. It has been converted before, but I wanted mine with more volume up top so I had to make it happen with some resizing and editing. I also added the additional adult colours after finding an awesome action by habsims which saved me a lot of time. I had to make the salt and pepper textures by hand, but they turned out relatively well. I am still clueless as to why this hair wasn't for adults too, but it is now and will more poof, its even better.


This hair features:
  • Base game compatibility
  • Available in all 18 basegame colours
  • Fully hat compatible
  • Custom thumbnail
  • Found under short length hair filter
  • disabled for random
  • Only for masculine body frame

Rolled V-neck Tee



Been sitting on this for about a month, so it was probably time I got around to sharing it. I always need more simple tees in my game, and v-necks especially since the particular style just isn't that common. I like rolled sleeves too. I don't know why, but I do. Anyway, this particular v-neck has a 3D collar (not just painted on) so it gives a nice look to the end product. I knew the doctor's scrubs would come on handy one day for a frankenmesh project. Anyway, enough blabbering, I hope you enjoy.


The clothing item features:
  • basegame compatible
  • Non-default
  • 20 colour options
  • available for teen to elder men
  • Labeled as masculine (can use used on female sims by removing filter)
  • found by default under the T-shirt filter
  • Disabled for random
  • Custom thumbnails
  • can be found by default in everyday, athletic, party, and sleepwear (but can be used in other categories by removing the filter in CAS)
This top can be used on bodies other then masculine male, but just be aware that the mesh is not optimised for breasts much like all other items converted from men to women with the unisex patch. I have not disabled them as someone might find a use but you will only find them under the masculine filter or if you remove the filter from the search bar in CAS.

UPDATED: Atwood Dining - Content Collection Addon





Update 1/10/2016: It was brought to my attention that the hippeastrum vase did not have a unique footprint (was linked to calla vase from Myra Living), this has now been fixed. You can either download the updated merged file, or grab the individual file at the SFS link at the bottom of the post.

With the addition of round tables with backyard stuff allowing me to take the rig and slot resources without having to tediously make my own, I can do what I have always planned to do: a round table in the style of mt anemone tables from my Atwood Living collection. So in order to make it a little more fleshed out, I added a few display pieces and stuff specific to a dining room. This is not a perfect match as my wood tones have improved since then, so have my fabric choices, but it still goes very well with Atwood, as well as any of my other custom content.
