Urbane Kitchen


I am a glutton for punishment, and making another kitchen is testament to that. However, I really love the simple Scandinavian design and had to have it in my game. With a simple pull-drawer design, it will be very versatile without being overtly modern. I have also made a set-only sink for this kitchen since I wanted to do an under-counter mounted farmhouse sink. I love my other countertop designs, but wanted something more inbuilt here, and love the outcome.

Broken Buildmode Content

 I am aware that patch has caused all buildmode items (windows, doors, arches) to become broken and no longer work as intended. When i work out a fix or S4S releases a batch fix, i will update all those sets requiring the fix.

Nifty Knitting Buymode Expanded - 20 new or edited Items


Courtesy of EA Game Changers, I managed to get early access to the Community-voted Nifty Knitting Stuff Pack. Unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances I didn't manage to get a review up about what I thought or the potential for addons in the future, so I decided to go ahead and skip a few other packs to get this out of the way (I will be revisiting other more complex packs later). I really loved the premise that a lot of the items are crafted by the sims, but because of that the catalogue felt rather emptier then it actually is. So i decided to do a modest buymode addon to add a few things I felt would add more usability, and fix a few things that bugged me. 
What I ended up with was 20 new or edited items. Some decor made from the crafted items (minus the knitted aspects), furniture, and I decided to de-chunkify the rocking chairs to reflect my tastes. All non-default so you can mix and match with the rest of the items. I am also looking into a buildmode addon too, but we shall see how that goes.

Eloise Camelback Seating - 4 New Seating Items

One thing I definitely notice is a lack of classic styles in my catalogue. I do honestly find a lot of it gaudy with overly detailed elements that just make my eyes dizzy taking it in. However, i do think there is a place for cleaned up designs that fit my aesthetic more but could also work in a more classic setting. This is such a set. I have also been attempting a camel-back design for quite some item but always seem to fail modelling it. Although this doesn't have the dip in the back some do, i liked it enough to see it through. I really love the arms myself, gives it a Victorian vibe without all the patterned fabric. 

Updated - 6 Seat Round Dining Tables

 Seems to have been an update to the table’s rig that caused sims to be unable to clean up food while sitting down. That has now been fixed. Sets with 6-seat round tables are linked below:

  1. Bowling Night Buymode Addon
  2. Atwood Dining
  3. Oasis-Chic Dining
  4. Kingston Dining
  5. Futura Living

StrangerVille Buildmode Expanded - 43 New Objects and 1 Default Replacement

This set was a long time coming, and I am so happy it's done. I love the style StrangerVille went with, since Carpenter Gothic is the often forgotten sibling of Gothic Architecture, and it gave a lot of material to work with since there were clearly three distinct sets. With a bumpy start from the window update that came with Eco Lifestyle postponing it to see how that would affect new objects, it is finally done, and became quite an extensive addon. I will definitely get a lot of use from the unique sets within the Game Pack now that I have more options.

Shrunken Square Coffee Tables - Resized for more Usability

I loved the idea of square coffee tables when they were introduced, but i think everyone can say they are a bit too big. The resizing of them is easy with in-game cheats, but placing things become a pain. I was tired of not getting enough use out of them, so I made some non-default versions that are 75% the original size. They work so much better with my style of decorating, so hopefully you all enjoy them too.

Ether Curved Seating - Four New Seating Options

I wanted to create a curved sofa as a bit of a challenge from an image I found on pinterest (like usual) and ended up with the set you see above. I get modern but a bit of a retro vibe from this design and I surprisingly love it in pink. Another great sofa collection to add to my ever expanding catalogue of living room seating. Will I stop? Probably not.
