Kalagan Contemporary Seating - MCM-Inspired Sofa, Loveseat, and Armchair

I have a sofa addiction; I just love how you can have something that essentially serves the same purpose in so many different styles and designs. Inspiration strikes from anywhere (well mainly pinterest). This time I was reading the local Sunday paper because I like looking at new house plans as i get a lot of ideas from them. One by a local builder had a new display home which used a really interesting sofa I had to make for my game, and here it is. I really love the wrap-around shell-like design and its very MCM-inspired to me. One of my favourite styles so i was sold. Now I have another great MCM-style sofa to use in my builds.

Romantic Garden Expanded - 16 New Doors and Windows

I love the Romantic Garden Sp especially the window, but there was only ever one of them. That really limited its use so I had to go about fixing that. This set took a while to complete; as much as I love the window, it wasn't exactly easy to manipulate. However this addon is done and I now have a very usable set of objects that are great for grand entries, sun-rooms and greenhouses among other things. No longer is one of the best windows to come out of an SP limited by its uniqueness.

Welcome To Selvadorada - Vacation World Makeover

I love this tropical world. It's closer to the sort of vacation I would go on rather then to a mountainous retreat with lots of pine trees (they really aren't a thing here in Australia, just flammable Eucalyptus). I have already made over the larger community lot which was in desperate need of attention, and now I have completed the remaining lots (minus the park at the bottom left). This style, a mixture of Mission and vibrant Spanish influences was so far out of my comfort zone I was afraid even GPS wouldn't guide me back. However I managed to get more comfortable with the style and kept on building and the end result is what you see here, something I am incredibly proud of. Hopefully you all enjoy it as me as me.

Houlton Colonial - Farmhouse for the Family

This home was something i just felt like building. I always make sure i have free lots in my tester save and went about building this home from a reference picture. i really love how it turned out even though all the holiday decorations bug me. Oh well. If you are interested in seeing the speed build video, you can find it here.

Moroccan Tiles - Walls and Flooring to Spice up Your Homes

I love Moroccan cement tiles and wanted some for my game. They offer a classic look but suits more modern applications giving a room a welcoming feel. After playing with this pattern for what seems like forever, I am at a stage where i don't hate it, and comfortable enough to release it. I have also tried out something experimental with the smaller pattern versions to maintain quality which i hope doesn't impact performance too much on you that have lower spec machines.

Simple V-Necks - Keeping It Simple and Stripe My V Tees

I love v-necks and there really isn't enough for my liking. I have done a few variations of the years and it was time to update these completely due to how much CAS has changed since i made them. New colours and colour combos have been included along with updated textures. One of my favourite basic tops for guys, this is going to get more use now its brand new.

Updated: Bowling Night Expanded - Stuff Pack Addons

I love MCM-style furniture, and the more eclectic styles of the 60's to 80's. That is what the Bowling SP offers, but much like the other Stuff Packs, they always leave you wanting more. Well I decided to tackle this pack next after what I accomplished what I did with Vintage Glamour. I am actually surprised I managed to get 26 items out of the meshes which were definitely not as versatile as some Maxis objects. Now you can complete more rooms with the same style and go retro until your heart is content.

Simple Crew Necks - Keeping It Simple and Stripe My Crew Tees

Another update of older content, Here is one of my favourite plain tees. Some times guys just need the basics. Nothing flashy, nothing over-designed, just some simple tees. So that is what I have supplied. Since the original is incredibly old, it was time to redo the mesh and texture. I have also decided to change the striped style to a thick design which I love.

No Occluder Small & Large Appliances Default Replacement

This file is a must-have if you use any of my kitchens. Since I changed the cabinet shader to fix colouring and shading issues, appliances, both small and large, have occluders that darken cabinets and make them look horrible. This solves that for all Maxis objects released so far (or recolours with a linked light source). All this file includes is default replacement light resources for all appliances that had occluders and will fix the issue.

Selvadorian Kitchen - Jungle Adventures Kitchen Redone

I really liked the design of the Jungle Adventures kitchen, but it was a bit to eclectic for my tastes so I decided to overhaul it into a more mainstream design. That meant a full retexture which then ended up with me editing the sink and making fridge nooks. It is now a lovely standalone set that i will get a bit more use out of then the original design.
