Oasis Riad



I had a lot of fun with the new Courtyard Oasis Kit, and decided to upload the house that eventuated from that fun. I started with the courtyard and worked out, so it's not a perfect shape or layout, but I think it works pretty well when I chose aesthetics over function. Had a lot of issues with the known stair bug where open foyers caused the stairs not to work, but tested a workaround which I hope works for all you like it did my tester. If the stairs don't work for you, let me know. 
Anyway, I hope you enjoy the small upload this week.

Curtis Seating

I saw this sofa design on pinterest, and had to have it for my game. The tub chair aesthetic really spoke to me, and the slight curves with a subtle pattern was just wonderful. I really feel this design will be at home in an apartment or loft and just add a bit of visual interest without being the centre of attention.

Broken Chairs From March Update

 So, I am still getting a lot of asks about these, and i want to state that I am currently not planning to update my core files. The reason? Maxis are planning on fixing this issue and is under investigation. I know this is a hard pill to swallow and that it is still an issue, but it is what it is. I don't want to update my core files then have to do another update to fix it. That is not a fun time for me.

If you are unable to wait, I recommend running the S4S batch fix which is quick and simple (and apparently reversible!). I highly recommend running it. Due to how the batch fix is done, i can't provide a separate download of them for everyone as they get grouped with the original swatches so it's hard to tell them apart, and you still need to delete the original files and re-place them (styling them to new swatches does not work). 

You can find S4S here (choose your operating system):

Eco Lifestyle Timber Flooring Expanded - 6 New or Edited Flooring Options

Highly requested (and something I missed which I usually do after a pack release) was recolouring the Eco Lifestyle flooring. I didn't do just that, I thought it was a missed opportunity not having the Upcycled timber walls as a flooring too, so I made it so in both original colour, and my recoloured version. I also took the hexagon timber and made a smaller version which I think will be great for smaller rooms like bathrooms. These are also in the original colour options plus the regular and small in my recolours. There is no such thing as too many flooring options.

Geometric Murals - 2 Walls in Poly- & Mono-chromatic Styles


I love my MCM items, and I feel that sometimes there are are no walls that compliment the style. I stumbled across a pinterest post with a similar DIY mural and thought to myself "this would be great in my builds" and set about making it. I am really happy with the outcome and happy to have, albeit modern, wall for my MCM rooms that adds a pop of colour and interest without the need of artwork.

Cozy Knits Bedding - Luxurious Bedding in 30 Knitted Options

I really loved the knitted pattern from the CL bed, but thought the texture was way too large. So I scaled it down and couldn't figure out what to do with it until recently. I really love how these came out, and now I have another textured option for my bedding, in all sizes.

24th March - Patch issues

 It has come to my attention that today's patch has also broken custom chairs. I am currently investigating the cause and when I know the issues, I will update all my chairs (oh god i have too many chairs). 

Update: Turns out chairs have been restricted to 32bit instances which is not ideal. I wont be updating until the gurus investigate and decide if they can update it on the backend or whether it is a permanent change. So for the moment custom chairs remain broken when slotted to surfaces (this included barstools, dining chairs, and office chairs).

Elsie Bedroom Basics - 25 New items

This was supposed to go up last week, but you know how life gets in the way. This is something I have been teasing on Patreon (only thing I could think to give as a little thank you to those supporting without pay-walling stuff). It is in concept a basics collection to give a standard, simple design that can be used throughout a home (in this case bedrooms) to give a cohesive feel. I am usually not for people asking for very specific designs in smaller bedframes or visa versa, but i can get behind a design that takes all sizes into consideration from the get go. If I like the concept, I may do more in the future. 
As this states, it is a basics collection, so it's just furniture (and mirrors).

Roarsome Walls - 21 New Stencilled Designs and 40 Complimentary Colours



I was decorating in-game and realised just how lacking walls for children's rooms are. Then I remembered I had always planned to turn my Roarsome animal designs into a wall and made that. Better late them never? Anyway, I put these on my newer wall design and decided to add some solids for more versatility. I may add some more plain wall colours in the future too, to match the white trim of these ones (previous wall designs wont gain white trim, will just look odd). Anyway, hope you enjoy the small upload this week since I missed uploading it the previous one.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE SIMS


This was a little secret I have been keeping for quite some time. I was approached about adding some of my creations to the game for a 21st birthday update. I chose about 10 of my creations from all the way back to my first furniture set, with these 3 items you see above chosen. I really proud that some of my favourite items have made it into a game that has had a substantial impact on my life. It really does give me a creative outlet and the product of that can be shared with an amazing community. 

It’s also nice to know that people that are unable to use CC (like console players) also benefit from a few more items to use. I hope you enjoy these Maxis supported items, but if you are interested in the items I made to accompany these, you can find them at the links below (though you fellow cc addicts probably have them already 😆 ) 

Console - Grove Furniture Collection

Wardrobe - Mid-Century Abode

Cloud Mirror - Roarsome Kids Bedroom


If you are also interested in getting a bit of background on the items and why I chose them, you can check out my mini-interview thingy here (also all the other contributors too because they are awesome).
