GTW Window Addons




I was reminded by people on tumblr just how much I liked these windows from GTW, but also how limited their use is. So I set about changing that with some addons in additional sizes and also a medium height version. I am happy with how they turned out and now they are so much more usable then the original alone.

The "Look At All This Stuff!" windows have both a standard and diagonal wall meshes, and both have been edited for the new sizes. The "Sims Are Watching" windows didn't come with a diagonal mesh, but I did see there was an issue with the original cutout, so I included a fix for that too. The textures are also linked (not included in the package) so save file size. If you want to recolour these, you will need to make a selective clone of the original window then import just the window textures into my window edits before cloning.

Myra Living








Yes, another living room set. I love choice and I wanted another modern design to choose from to go with all the mid-century stuff I am building at the moment. This set actually started out with the 3 seat sofa which was a rejected design for the Hamptons Hideaway set which was too good to toss. It also incorporated a stillborn idea for an office set, so I combined the two to create this. I am happy with how it turned out and its now one of my favourite sofa designs for my homes.

Riverside Cottage


I really don't like working with small lots. I feel most comfortable building 3-5 bedroom homes on no smaller then 20x30. However, larger lots are just not as common in this game, so I have had to adapt. This is quite a large home for this lot, but it looks at home by the small river. I like to consider the area around a lot to be part of a home, which makes the lot feel much more substantial. Its quite generous inside, even if its at the cost of exterior space. You can rarely have both space outside and inside in this game, but its a trade-off I am willing to make.

The home features:
  • 3 bedrooms
  • 2 bathrooms

Updates


As you may have seen visiting my blog, I have been in the middle of a massive updating spree for my sets. This was mainly triggered by the lighting update that Maxis released which broke a lot of cc lights, but it was also an opportunity to update some minor issues as well. Graciously Georgian was the last set that needed updating, so you can no find all the updated items in their respective posts.

Remember, if you find an issue, please let me know. I don't catch everything and will try and help you figure out if its my content or an issue on your side. Just remember to be specific, I can't help if I have no information to go on.

Now back to cc making.

Updated: Graciously Georgian Build Set


UPDATE 23/07/2016: I was made aware that the low lod for the French, Wide, and Double doors were displaying the missing texture image due to incorrect linking, that has been fix. It was only a concern if viewing the items from a fair distance away, but nevertheless, needed fixing. You can redownload below, as well as the updated files separately. Thanks to Kanata2288 on twitter for letting me know about the issue.

It is finally finished: my first unique set of build mode items. I tend to more often then not  "go big, or go home" and this set is no exception. This is what I call a full build set, with matching interior and exterior items. The idea was to create a classic Georgian-style set for use in everyday homes, both classic and contemporary. Let me tell you, this was made harder given there is no CASt, but I think I came up with a very usable set. To say I am proud of these objects is an understatement, especially when I thought at one point I would not finish it. But here it is, so you can enjoy it as much as me.

Fenrrick House


The home on the hill in the north of Windenburg, this residence is quite large considering its looks. Its amazing what what overhangs can do for the top floor! Anyway, this is again a more country home with some tudor influence with soft colouring to make it a little more casual then the city buildings. Also there is some grassed area for a vegie patch which is always nice.

  • 5 bedrooms
  • 3 bathrooms
  • open plan dining/kitchen
  • price: $36,336
  • 30x20 lot size

UPDATED: Hamptons Hideaway - Living Room Set for TS4





UPDATE 21/07/2016: Set updated for July Lighting patch. Download individual files at the bottom of the post.

With all the building I have been doing in Windenburg, it has shown me just how much I needed to create some more classic-contemporary furniture that could be used in these coastal homes. I love Hamptons design, so I went about creating my own set of furniture and decor inspired by this style. The last classic/contemporary set I made was my Shaker kitchen which this is designed to be used with, along with my Bayside Bedroom. I do plan to make more furniture with less of a modernist feel, and this is the latest set with that goal in mind. I hope you all enjoy it as much as me.
