March 14 Infant Patch

This is just a pre-emptive post to say I am expecting a lot of items to break with the Infant patch. If you find something broken, please limit it to this post so I can collect the responses and get to updating as soon as I figure out the issues causing broken content.

Because of how big and widespread this patch will be, I highly advise the following:

  1. taking a backup of your save files, especially considering it may take days or longer to fix all content that breaks. Your cc saves are essentially going to be unplayable at this time
  2. Remove your mods folder (cut and paste) and store in a safe place before running the patch
  3. Alternately, you can turn off auto-update in the EA app by going to settings located in the dropdown menu for your profile in to top right hand corner, going to applications, and turning off Application updates. This will allow you to wait to update until things are fixed, or a batch fix is available via Sims 4 Studio. 
Please keep in mind I am an individual doing this in my spare time. I pride myself at keeping my content up-to-date but it's too early to know how far reaching this patch will be, or how long it will take to fix. So please be patient and remember, CC creators are people behind the screens.

Furrowed Plaster - Plaster wall in 3 styles and 20 colours

I love the wall Unbent Smoothness from the basegame. It is the perfect plaster/concrete texture; not too harsh but still has details. So i decided to use it as the base of a wall I made while playing around in blender. i wanted something deeply recessed with a geometric feel that could be used as an accent of the exterior of a building. It ended up working inside as well to my surprise. Nothing wrong with another good sculptural wall in my opinion.

Double Baton Panelling

Another year, another wall panelling. Love these styles of wall for a feature, and spotted the inspiration of this on pinterest before Christmas. I tweaked and added some variants for more versatility.

Creta Indoor & Outdoor Kitchen

I have not really done many outdoor sets, which is odd considering I live outside most of the year. It usually comes down to inspiration.  I did stumble across a wonderful outdoor kitchen on pinterest with an interesting trough that I just had to add to my game, and that is how Creta was born. I decided I like it both as an indoor and outdoor set so it grew beyond what I usually do, but I am really happy with the outcome.

Rolled Rattan - Seating Set with Three Items

Saw the inspiration for this sofa at my local Bunnings store, and had to make it. Was initially going to be fully cane, but changed it to rattan, and far happier with the outcome. It also pairs wonderfully with my Bowed Living set. Now I have more options, and so do you!

Terra Tiles - Modern Geometric Tile in 4 Layouts

So browsing Pinterest I came across an interesting subway-shaped tile. With an asymmetrical design, geometric in style, and catching light differently because of it's surface design, I fell in love. So much so i made it in 4 layout style. Did I need 4 layouts? No. Did I want it in 4 layouts? Definitely. Now you all benefit.

Bowed Living - Contemporary Rattan Set with 32 Items

Finally got around to experimenting with rattan. TS4 has small textures, so doing life-like scale just isn't a possibility if you want to keep a Maxis-look. So I made my own using a tutorial I came across for blender, and here we are. I love how it turned out and not I finally have rattan I like, I can using it in future sets, just probably not to this extent again. It's a lot of rattan LOL

Copperdale Highschool and Auditoriums

Finally done with my rebuilds for the new High School Years pack. I wasn't really impressed with the originals, so I modified the original school, and completely rebuilt the auditorium. Enjoy!

Shore Seating - Modern Monochromatic Design

This is quite a unique design in it's execution, and I felt in love with the inspiration for this set. The original design paired fabric upholstery with a metal frame powder-coated in the same colour. I loved the monochromatic look and decided to tweak the design into what you see here. I also fell in love with the green from my fabric palette on this set. It was truly made for it.

Whilloh Kitchen - Louvred Design with 12 Objects

14th of October, 2020. That was the day this kitchen idea was first born. I know that because I created the folder for the blend file on that day (I do try to be organised). I loved the idea of a louvre kitchen, but never found the time to bring it to reality so it just sat there, forever in limbo taunting me to work on it, or bin it. I loved it too much to throw away such a unique idea, so it just sat there. After such a shitty start to 2022, I finally opened up the blend file, promptly remapped it, and got to work finishing it. I am really glad I did. I get British Colonial vibes, where it's classic design meets tropical relaxation, and I finally got around to making rattan I like, and that works with the style of TS4. Now everyone can enjoy the final product and what I envisioned almost 2 years ago when I came up with it.
