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.

Due to the length of these posts and for ease of updating, you can find the download and info under the cut.

A few notes on this set in regards to usability and features:

  • Both bookcases are actually bookcases, sims can grab books and read from them so they are not only usable, but a great display option too
  • To use all slots on objects, be sure to have MoveObjects cheat turned on
  • Be sure to place the pillows while holding alt to have free rotation and movement
  • The coffee and end table also has small slots on the lower shelf
  • The credenza has a TV slot
  • I have linked textures for the lights and document boxes so you need to have the low pendant or the empty document box ingame for the other styles to work

The Build/Buy items feature:
  • basegame compatibility
  • non-default
  • 42 meshes in total with between 10 and 36 colour/style options:
  • find items easily using phrase "Myra" in search bar (try this tutorial to easily find my sets)
  • style (found under "modern" tag) and colour filter compatible

CC credits:
  • All custom content, apart from the curtains (found here) is all mine, so feel free to browse through my downloads to find it. 
  • Special thanks to my friend jorgha-haq for letting me use her simlish magazine covers for the magazine document holder saving me time making my own.
Now, there are 2 download types; one for separate packages and one with all items merged. The archives contains the package file(s) and style images inside a folder. Extract the archive using winRAR or WinZip, place the package file(s) in your mods folder, then look for them in your game. I hope you enjoy. No onedrive choice this time, just takes too long to upload to all these places.

I have also uploaded the files individually. There will be no alternate download for these individual files.

  6. Hi! I was wondering, I don't know if you accept requests, so I was kinda hesitant to ask this, but could you make a modular version of the wall-mounted console, the no-drawers one? To make a rectangular shelf as long as you want. It'd be great if it could be done. Thanks for listening!

    1. Sorry, but i don't take requests. I only make items I would use for my own game and I really don't see myself using something along the lines as you described (not to mention to awkwardness of the slots for such an object). I wouldn't rule it out though, so i will keep the idea in mind when I do shelving again.

    2. Actually I planned to use it for an idea for a kitchen I saw in Ikea the other day, using your Lennox kitchen small cabinets and this console as shelf under them to put plants, longer than two squares, of course. Well, I just had to ask. Thanks a lot for answering!!

  8. What's the difference between merged and separated collections?

    1. No difference really, but the benefits comes from difference aspects of how you like to have your game. If you like to keep organised and don't want to recolour content for your own use, the Merged file is handy for that. If you want to pick and choose what files you want (for instance if you don't want the higher poly items) and perhaps want to add recolours, then the separated is better. Really depends on your needs. Most people opt for the merged package though.

  9. hi! the hanging lights and the fileholder with magazines don't show up in my game. Well... They do but they don't have their colors. Am I missing something? I couldn't really find anything on here about it? only that I need to have something for 2 of the downloads which I guess are the 2 I'm talking about. But it doesn't say what I need to download for them to work?

    1. The textures are linked for both sets of those items so you must have the short chandelier and the empty document box in your mods folder (aka don't remove those items from the separate download) for those other styles to work. I do this because i ended up having to upload bigger and bigger files each time for these sets and my net is not that fast so its more of a efficiency improvement for me. I did mention this under the few notes section above too.
