Mid Century Eclectic Object Set


This set is a bit different from my previous ones. It was designed to take a bit of the tedium out of creating "object sets" with multiple matching items and designed to go together. This set is something that can be mixed and matched with other sets, hence the name "eclectic". The randomness of the items, but how they all come together is what I aimed for, and I think I succeeded. It is also a smaller size (both file and item count) which was nice after completing Atwood living. That set was HUGE! I have also included some retro inspired wallpapers to accompany this set. We really do need more wallpapers, so go fourth and decorate with these new pretties.


Things you should know: 
  • This latest update doesn't replace the items, they are just updated to the latest patch except the pendant lamps which are new package files
  • You need the shortest pendant ingame for the textures for the other heights
  • to place the risom tables close together, turn on MOO
  • Some of the old orchid swatches have been deleted, and no longer change pot colour, just the flower colour. The mesh has also been updated
  • some swatches have been removed due to updating the textures

Updates:
  • 13/12/2017: updated for the 12/12/17 patch that broke some surfaces
  • 4/12/2017: Updated for the Cats+Dogs. Also remade pendant lamps so those will need to be re-placed in your games. Items also updated with my current palettes and fabrics
  • 21/01/2017: With the toddler patch breaking a few things, I have taken the opportunity and gone through and updated my sets to fix issues and generally improve on some things. 
  • Update 17/07/2016: I have updated this set to work with the latest July patch where changes were made to the lighting tuning.

    1. Yes, unfortunately i know about it. I have no idea what causes it though, so i can only suggest to people to use a different download link if they are concerned

  6. love your stuff, all of it. I quarantine all the items I download for the Sims so they're easier to find if something doesn't look or work right in game but with your creations I know they'll look great so I don't even bother quarantining them. so for your impeccable work, I thank you.

  7. Using the individual downloads, I can't seem to find the one for the wallpaper? I see everything else (and downloaded a few) but I really want the wallpaper!

    1. only the meshes are in the individual download section. If you want the wallpapers, click one of the links under "download wallpapers". Its the third set of links at the bottom of the post, right above the Individual Items download.

    2. the black swatch's pot isn't black and a few swatches are showing the same thing

      Delete
    3. Did you remove the old package file? I redid the textures and removed some of the swatches. All pots are white now with different flower colours. If you prefer having coloured pots over coloured flowers, removed the newest version.

Could you please point me in the right direction? Thank you!
