Nifty Knitting Buymode Expanded - 20 new or edited Items


Courtesy of EA Game Changers, I managed to get early access to the Community-voted Nifty Knitting Stuff Pack. Unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances I didn't manage to get a review up about what I thought or the potential for addons in the future, so I decided to go ahead and skip a few other packs to get this out of the way (I will be revisiting other more complex packs later). I really loved the premise that a lot of the items are crafted by the sims, but because of that the catalogue felt rather emptier then it actually is. So i decided to do a modest buymode addon to add a few things I felt would add more usability, and fix a few things that bugged me. 
What I ended up with was 20 new or edited items. Some decor made from the crafted items (minus the knitted aspects), furniture, and I decided to de-chunkify the rocking chairs to reflect my tastes. All non-default so you can mix and match with the rest of the items. I am also looking into a buildmode addon too, but we shall see how that goes.

Eloise Camelback Seating - 4 New Seating Items

One thing I definitely notice is a lack of classic styles in my catalogue. I do honestly find a lot of it gaudy with overly detailed elements that just make my eyes dizzy taking it in. However, i do think there is a place for cleaned up designs that fit my aesthetic more but could also work in a more classic setting. This is such a set. I have also been attempting a camel-back design for quite some item but always seem to fail modelling it. Although this doesn't have the dip in the back some do, i liked it enough to see it through. I really love the arms myself, gives it a Victorian vibe without all the patterned fabric. 

Updated - 6 Seat Round Dining Tables

 Seems to have been an update to the table’s rig that caused sims to be unable to clean up food while sitting down. That has now been fixed. Sets with 6-seat round tables are linked below:

  1. Bowling Night Buymode Addon
  2. Atwood Dining
  3. Oasis-Chic Dining
  4. Kingston Dining
  5. Futura Living
