Vintage Glamour Buildmode Addons - Part One: Narcissus’s Folly Doors, Arches, and Windows

I think having a "Part One" in the name of this post is very revealing about how out of control this buildmode addon has gotten. It is so big I had to break it into multiple chunks so i didn't get overwhelmed. This is the first part and was an idea to turn the mirrors into functional windows and then it grew from there. I do love everything, especially the doors I came up with because we don't get many modern or art deco doors to play with in the game, so more the merrier.

Regarding Builds Including My Content As a Patreon Exclusive

I didn’t think I would need to state this because my stance on paywalls and pay-per-click shorteners are pretty obvious, but it is not ok
You are locking my content behind a paywall so you are effectively claiming the content as your own and making money off my blood, sweat and tears. I honestly don’t care that you ‘put work into the house’ or ‘it’s more convenient for the downloader’, that doesn’t excuse the fact of what is being done and how disrespectful it is. Lets not even get into the issues of older content being bundled up which can cause people problems, or the fact that people NEVER update older lots including cc with the newer updated versions. It is an accident waiting to happen. And i am not even going to touch on what EA/Maxis has stated in regards to their Terms you agree to when playing TS4. 
My content should be freely available, and the only way that is acceptable when it is bundled in a download is if that build is freely downloadable as well. I say it right in my ToU so don’t act dumb. I even amended it to explicitly list Patreon. Those houses would not be the same without the content i created  so don’t abuse my good nature by being an arse.

Diagonally Laid Floorboards

I love wood flooring but always want more natural colour variety (I rarely, if at all use unnatural colours). I love the uniqueness of the diagonal flooring from Vampires GP, but it needed more colours and some tweaking (the shine was a bit too much). So I went about fixing that and here it is.

Upland Place Dingbats - L.A. Inspired Home for Del Sol Valley

Dingbats are just a really kind of intriguing apartment. Lowrise by nature they are common in LA area but also kind of looked down upon. I love the Mid Century design and wanted to bring a little bit of that to Del Sol Valley. There are 4 apartments, i have only furnished 1. You can live in that or choose a different one to have your sim live in instead. This does not function like actual apartments, it is just set up like one.

Graciously Georgian Version 2.0 - Classic Style Build Set with 60 New and Improved Items

I have been working on this for too long. Way too long. I loved the original set; I use it a lot and we just don't really have anything similar in-game to replicate it. However, the original had issues. It was my first original buildmode set so that was expected. However I kept seeing other issues besides the ones reported that I just had to fix because they bugged me. So it is finally done and I am even happier. Why so long? I have made it so this replaces the original items almost perfectly. Along with fixing existing meshes removing unnecessary polys and fitting better into the game sizing (no clipping through ceilings) I also added a few new items as well.

Welcome to StrangerVille - Community and Residential Lot Dump

I love StrangerVille. I love the desert landscape, the cacti, the rock formations and the neighbourhood story. Most of all I felt this world gave such a different vibe from anywhere else i didn't feel confined to building the same sorts of lots. That freedom really can spark the imagination and I went about building new lots for how I envision the world. That resulted in 2 community lots (you can't make over the lab unfortunately), and 10 residential lots with the Old Penelope and the 2 versions of the trailer park lot being furnished with the remainder being shells for you to decorate. The Gothic style items were so lovely to work with, and I will definitely be looking at expanding those at a later date.

Not Quite The Parapet - StrangerVille Addon

It always happens like this. I go ingame and try building with new content only to get an idea on how to make new content, or in this case add additional variations to make it more usable. I loved the idea of the parapet but having to build around a 4 tile wide item was kinda limiting. The mapping was especially well done making the editing of this object incredibly easy.
