PC Boardshorts 02

Here is a new set of clothing I have designed for my sims. I like the IP boardshorts but I really hate stencils since they aren't recolourable. So I took the second style of boardshorts, converted to base-game and designed new masks to give 5 different styles with 4 recolourable channels. So what I ended up with is the styles you see below. They are found in everyday, swimwear and athletic categories. The download contains both the sim3pack and package files, so extract the archive and choose one method of installation.

Hillcrest Cove: A World that is Finally Finished

Yes, it is finally finished. I have lost count how many years I have spent looking at this world, sometimes in awe and sometimes with great resentment. Well it is finally finished (or at least meeting my minimum requirements for what I think finished should be). It is not perfect, the usable space is small with the landscape dictating the design of the world. However I still love it, and I hope you all do too, even if many may not forgive the time it has taken for me to overcome the relentless frustration I have experienced creating this world. Hillcrest cove is classed as a large world (2048x2048) with 112 lots, both community and residential (53 community, 59 residential), with 21 of those lots being vacant. It was named after the mound found in the centre of the map in the Hillcrest reservoir. Nestled into the rolling hills, the lush landscaping and the mixture of ash, cottonwood and chestnut livens up the scenery. This was vision of the perfect world for me and the closest I came to making it reality.

"Hillcrest Cove is a place that brings together many different types of people from rural farmers to city socialites in a setting that is both functional and awe inspiring. Whether you settle in Jelly Palm Bay, Central district or Westpoint Valley, you can enjoy the entire town and what it has to offer. With amenities for all from the Lusty Georgian maid tavern to the ominous Dragon's lair, you wont be bored here. Hillcrest Cove has been a project town for many years and is finally complete, so I hope you all come to visit this special town and what it has to offer."

PC Baggy Tank Top

T had this design on the base game mesh and it looked ok, but once IP come around. the layered tank was just screaming for this to happen. So here is my latest piece of clothing. It may not be to everyone's taste and may not be perfect, but i like it and its 4 channels with 3 dedicated to the gradient tank. I think the bagginess really works for this mesh too. So as i said, the tank has 4 recolourable channels with 5 presets, found in everyday, athletic and sleepwear. The archive contains both sim3pack and package formats.

Hargrave's Farm - For BnS 213-214

Hi everyone! here is a build I have been wanting to do for a little while, a barn house, and BnS had a farm challenge on, so I decided to enter it for fun. The house is quite quaint and built on a 40x40 lot with sloping ceilings and a rustic (unusual for me) interior and a well landscaped exterior. It costs $138,060 so it comfortably comes into the $200,000 maximum cost limit. I hope you enjoy as much as I enjoyed building it :)

PC Stonewashed Jeans

Here is a little edit I did. I really wanted to mesh on the the rockstar career outfits to remove the scarf, but unfortunately that's out of my grasp right now, I just wouldn't know where to start. However, I loved the jeans and decided to use them on another mesh from the game. So here are some base game jeans with 3 colourable channels; the jeans, belt and buckle. They can be found in everyday, formal, career and outerwear. I have made 5 pre-made styles. The archive contains both the sim3pack and the package files, so only choose 1 to install.

Kaufmann Desert House

Here is another old WIP I have finally finished and decided to upload. This 5 bedroom, 4 bathroom house is based on the real life home of the same name. The original was built by Richard Neutra for Edgar J. Kaufmann Sr. who also commissioned Fallingwater by Frank Lloyd Wright. The Kaufmann Desert House is a great example of "International Style Architecture". The house is recognised as one of the most important houses of the 20th century in the US. I love Frank Lloyd Wright, so it was inevitable I would move on to another designer of the same period. The house is on a 50x50 lot and can be placed on any of those in Lucky Palms (which is needed for the landscaping) or you can place a custom lot in any other worlds or if none are available.

Ashgrovia - A Queenslander

This is a more recent build i have created, based on the queenslander house style found here in Australia. With the pillar foundation and latticework, it its as close to the real deal I can make in TS3. This is based on a legacy house I made when the Pets EP came out but I built it on a smaller lot and re-jigged the layout. The lot is 30x40 and no cc was used in its creation. 


PC V-kneck Tee 01

Here is another Tee I have been messing around with. Its an edit of a diesel tee converted to basegame with edited multiplier and mask layers. I spent so long trying to get the multiplier to stop being pixelated, but then I realised this is a common problem and stopped freaking out so much. I still freaked out, but I managed to get something with very little pixelation. The tee is supplied in 5 styles on the one mesh and found in everyday and athletic. The archive contains both the sim3pack and package file.

Irvine House

Today I bring you a more recent build that was designed as part of an RP I was involved in, but due to exiting, the project was put on a back burner. Anyway I finally finished and due to the issues associated with the roofing (don't let the simplicity fool you) I wanted to share it with you all. The house  is on a 40x40 lot and can be placed anywhere, but I currently have it in Lucky Palms but have also had it in Bridgeport.
