Welcome to Del Sol Valley - Community Lot Dump

Finally, after a great deal of building and tweaking, I have given Downtown Del Sol Valley the much needed makeover it deserved. With 5 community lots to do, it took some time coming up with cohesive designs that I felt worked for the area. I have kept the basis format of the previous lots, apart from the park and made a cafe to go there. Now all my pictures will have lovely backdrops.

Get Famous Expanded Seating - 7 Additional Matching Options

Get Famous has some great seating options, but unsurprisingly, the seating options don't come in what I consider full sets: sofa, loveseat, and armchair. I am here to fix that! I have taken the 3 seats without full sets (the baroque was complete luckily, I would have hated working with the tufting) and manipulated them into the additional variations. I also added some benchseats, because I love them. So no longer will you be saying "man, i wish there was a loveseat of that!" because you have one now.

Sophisticated Panelling - Narrow and Wide Painted Panels in 40 Colours

I really loved the last panelling I made and had another idea for a different design. So off to blender i went, and after baking and making the textures, here it is. I think this feels a bit more regal then the other design, but beautiful nonetheless. I didn't do a plain version as the wall uses the same detailing as Splendid Panelling, so if you want a plain wall, be sure to go grab it.

Paige Classical Seating - Sofa, Loveseat, Armchair, and Wingback

I save a lot of sofas on pinterest because I love them. They are fun and relaxing to make. But i also notice a lot of the ones I have made are mainly modern. I needed some more classical styles (but not gaudy) to use in my more traditional builds. So I decided to try my hand on this cut-away style that feels very English in design to me. It is a bit more formal then my Hamptons Hideaway set, and with the wingback, I can definitely see this used in Georgian townhouses.

Clayton Court - A Del Sol Valley Residence

I had early access to Get Famous and this is the house I built to test out not only the content, but also the new terrain tools. There are definitely some kinks to work out, but overall i am impressed and enjoying the new pack. I actually managed to furnish this lot too, so Huzzah! If you are just getting the pack you might find the home useful. If you don't have the pack yet, you can still enjoy it for the most part, minus some of the furniture.

Splendid Panelling - Three New Painted Wall Styles

These walls started off as a blender experiment, but once getting them in game I fell in love. Because of that I added a few more styles for variation and now I have a nice mini-set of walls for my homes. It is not often I make classically-themed item (albeit with a modern twist) so it was about time. Perhaps more in the future if I feel up to it.

Updated: Volta Appliances - Modern & Unique Designs for your Kitchens

This set consists of rejects. Not because i hated them, but because they were not what i envisioned once they came into being. These were the appliances initially meant to be included with Mina Kitchen, but I felt they competed too much and clashed with the understated design of the kitchen. However, unlike some rejected projects, i still liked them enough to keep them and continue polishing the idea into something that stands on it's own. So this set may have been born from a rejected idea, but it is much more then that now.

Updated: Mina Kitchen - Contemporary Shaker-Style Kitchen for TS4

Kitchens are a pain to make. Although it appears as one object in the catalogue, it is multiple meshes combined that are needed to give you a functional kitchen. You then have to be meticulous in assuring they are all the right size and seamlessly join together, both the placement and the texture. I said after my last two custom kitchens it would be a while before I made another, and today is that day, over two years later, that i bring you my latest creation. I like to think I have learnt a lot in the time that has passed which made this process go a little faster then a snail's pace, but in honesty, it probably took about the same time. Regardless, I love this new kitchen. It is a more contemporary shaker style that works in both classic and modern designs. I am going to get a lot of use out of it, and maybe it will form the base for another kitchen in the near future like Shaker Kitchen formed the base of Lennox Kitchen. Depends on how I feel.

Kitchen Updates

I am currently making a new kitchen and came across an issue with my previous versions. There seems to be an issue where a sink or dishwasher placed underneath a cabinet was unusable by sims. I have rectified the issue on the sets that experienced the problem. Please redownload the merged files, or grab the cabinet package files if you use the separated versions.

Yanako Modern Seating - Set of Four Comfort Objects

I have a thing for sofas as you are probably aware (if not you must be new here) and I like twists on the designs too. This style I thought was unique and simple that I needed it in my game. The wingback specifically was something I saw at a local shopping centre as 'rest' seating. It was incredibly comfy and unique too, so that had to be made so I could have it in my houses. Overall this has come out as a relatively modern set with a minimalist vibe, something I think is not always catered to with cc. Now I have some furniture perfect for that design style.

Comfy and Practical - Slim Cuffed and Yoga Sweatpants

Another week and two more clothing updates. I think i am almost done! As you can tell I love having a large variety of sweatpants styles in my game for all occasions. These were some of my most-used but with the need to remake them, I made a few improvements. Like all my other styles I have tweaked the textures, fixed bones and added more colour options. Do be aware these suffer from the sunken crotch, but since I will never use them on females and don't make clothing for the feminine frame, there is no point pulling my hair out to rectify it when I will never personal use them.

Summer Fun - Loose Cut, and Loose Bands Tank Tops

Another day, another fix/remake. This time my fave tank top. The goal was to update the original file, however that wasn't possible because of some changes, so I decided just to remake it. I overhauled the texture, fixed the NM and added more colours. I also decided to remake my Dip Dyed Tank on this mesh and love how it turned out. So now there is a plain and patterned version available.

Kalagan Contemporary Seating - MCM-Inspired Sofa, Loveseat, and Armchair

I have a sofa addiction; I just love how you can have something that essentially serves the same purpose in so many different styles and designs. Inspiration strikes from anywhere (well mainly pinterest). This time I was reading the local Sunday paper because I like looking at new house plans as i get a lot of ideas from them. One by a local builder had a new display home which used a really interesting sofa I had to make for my game, and here it is. I really love the wrap-around shell-like design and its very MCM-inspired to me. One of my favourite styles so i was sold. Now I have another great MCM-style sofa to use in my builds.
