Default Replacement Thumbnails

Hey everyone! I have a little bit of a mod for my content for you. It is purely optional of course and will help you tell my stuff apart from standard content. It is default replacement thumbnails! I made these because EA removed the one way I used to distinguish my CAS CC and my object recolours really needed something to help them stand out. This was more for me, but since I am happy with them now, I thought I would share. There are 2 package files, one for CAS items, and one for object recolours.

How to use these default replacement thumbnails:
  1. download the package file(s)
  2. put in your mods folder just like any other custom content
  3. go to My Documents > Electronic Arts > The Sims 4
  4. find the file called "localthumbcache"
  5. delete it
When you start up the game next, the custom thumbnails will show up for all content I have previously released. All future content I will be adding custom thumbnails which will be included in the package file. This method is just easier so I don't need to re-release my content again with the thumbnails.

Vulcanus Modern Fireplace

Fireplaces in TS4 are one of the most neglected categories. We only got 3 styles, and in my opinion, only 1 of them was usable. I created the Look At Me Fireplace to bring that count up to two, and this one will bring it up to 3. That makes me happy. I love fireplaces as a focal point of a room (even though they can set a house on fire), so i think I am about done improving them now I have a good selection for myself. 

The Build/Buy items feature:
  • basegame compatibility
  • non-default
  • 14 fireplace choices (all white with varying feature tile designs)
  • All 14 styles found under one item in the catalog
  • Costs $600
The archive contains the  package file and cover image. Just place in your mods folder and look for them in your game. I hope you enjoy.

V-Neck Baseball Tee

I like baseball tees, I made a set in TS3 and when I saw that there appeared to be a way to have them in TS4, I went to work on a long sleeve version with a twist. However, after find out that the sleeves were and illusion, it set me back a bit. I however didn't loose my enthusiasm and this is the final result. I really love these and hope you all do too.

The clothing item features:
  • basegame compatibility
  • Non-default
  • 20 colour options
  • available for teen to elder men
  • found by default under the t-shirt filter
  • can be found by default in everyday, athletic, party and sleep categories (but can be used in other categories by removing the filter in CAS)
The archive contains the package file and the image of the styles included. Just drop it in your mods folder and it will show up :)
