Post Patch Reporting of Broken CC

I am putting this up now so you all know the deal. I will not be a happy camper if you post a comment blurting “you cc is broken!!!” or “your cc broke my game!!!” and not giving me exact details. If you don’t want to be that person, here are some handy points for you to look at to help me get any possible broken CC fixed once the appropriate programs are updated:

For Build/Buy Mode


  • What item it is and what set does it come from (if applicable)
  • Do you have the merged or separated files?
  • How is it broken? The more detail the better here. Does it stop the game from opening? Good! That is helpful. Does it disappear when placing? Do sims throw a tantrum when you try to make them use an item? All helpful.
  • Did you update the file after the C+D patches? (you will not believe how many people still haven’t).

For CAS


  • please explain in plenty of words the exact issue with item (e.g. morphing, categories, completely missing etc)
  • if its something like mesh gaps, tell me where they occur, and if its dependant on slider positions


To save what is left of my sanity, when the patch shows up and you want to report something, elaborate on how it isn’t working as intended. It will help me get stuff fixed so much sooner without having to constantly facepalm at the stupid ass messages in my inbox simply stating “your cc is not working!!!! When will you fix!?!” which may very well turn me into a homicidal maniac (and give me a massive headache). No one wants that.

Given the wide reaching updates expected for Seasons, something is bound to break (and i really hope its minimal), so save my sanity and give as much detail as you can, it will be very much appreciated.

Bruuno Industria - Modern Seating Collection


I saw the inspiration for this sofa on pinterest and fell in love with the metal frame that I just had to make it for my game. So I did. It was original just going to be available in leather, but with my new fabric textures sitting there after I made them for Vara Lounge, I tried them on the mesh and fell in love all over again. Now I have some more industrial-style sofas in lots of choices, and so do you.

Pushed Up V-Neck - new sweater for guys



This is something new I ended up making after looking at my old v-neck sweater I made which was a retexture of a basegame mesh. I loved the idea of a 3D collar and with the addition of an item with one, I set about using part of the mesh for this. The original did have a tee underneath, but I decided to get rid of it for this new version since you could use an accessory tee an an option. I am very happy with the outcome and definitely plan more variants in the future. As for now, its just this simple version which gets lots of use in my game.

Cats & Dogs Build Mode Expanded - 55 Fixed, Additional, or New Doors, Arches, and Windows


Well it is finally done; my Cats and Dogs Buildmode addon. Let me tell you this was no easy project. With the release of the Pre-EP patch came cc updates but it also messed with the way windows were made which meant waiting for S4S to update. Then I had a vacation, and then this blew into a lot bigger project then I was expecting. However, now it is done the objects are not only more useful then before (thumbs up to Maxis for giving us a very decent sent of buildmode items to start with) but you now get even more options for building. Win-win. Hopefully you will all get as much use out of it as i have, and will continue to into the future.

Beachdays: Some Junk in Your Trunks & Surfs Up! Boardshorts





I really let these clothing updates fall by the wayside, that's for sure. So right back into them it is! This time is a redo of my swimwear from a followers gift with cleaned up textures, new styles, and just generally nicer to look at. I canned some styles, but since these don't replace the original, you can have both versions if you wish.

Hamptons Builtin - Intergrated Furniture Options for TS4


I have been working on these items for over a year. It started off as an idea to have a modular builtin cabinet system for nooks in my living rooms for TVs and clutter. Then it expanded to bay windows. This has gone through many iterations and redos but its finally at a stage of completion, so people can enjoy it as much as me.

Vara Lounge - Exposed Frame Seating





I love making sofas. There are just so many different designs out there that the inspiration is infinite. This set was made to test a new alternate fabric texture set I have been meddling with and quite happy how it turned out. I like this set because it is the same texture just in different colours, unlike my previous textures which I like for the varying textures. The exposed wood frame is also a feature I don't see to often so this was a great opportunity to experiment and see what came out of it.

Kingston Dining - 20 New Dining Room Items


I love a good dining room and its not something I make a lot of. I know I just made the outdoor set, but that is different. This project started out by seeing the Oval table in a furniture store and I just had to make it for my game. The set just grew from there. It definitely turned out to be modern, but i think it has a hint of MCM in there too, a great balance in my opinion.

Rustic Planks - Rough-cut Timber Flooring in Two Sizes



I really loved the flooring from Jungle adventure, but again like most things, i found the colour selection lacking. So like past flooring, i have tweaked and recoloured in a range of colours to suit more situations. I have also done the flooring in two sizes: the original larger scale, and a 50% size. I think I am going to get a lot of use out of these for more rustic builds.
