Rock’n Rockers - A Collection of 12 Rocking Chairs



When Nifty Knitting came out, the item I was most excited about was the rocking chair. The design wasn't my cup of tea, but the possibilities it brought to the game was something I couldn't ignore. So I went about investigating the tuning to see whether or not it was added to the basegame. To my surprise, it wasn't pack-exclusive (hinting at the possibility that Maxis could add more down the line), meaning I could make some chairs that would be able to work for those with updated games (pre-Nifty Knitting patch) but didn't require the pack. I love when new furniture types are added to basegame, just like the 6 seat round table. Anyway, i got carried away and came up with 12 new designs to give people a bit more variety. Grandma is going to be one stylish rocker in these babies!
What you need to know:
  • These are basegame compatible because Maxis added the tuning to basegame through patch. However...
  • there is a caveat: you need the pre-patch for Nifty Knitting at a minimum. If you game is fully updated then you have it. Don't have the patch? These wont work. I tested with the pack disabled, and with 2 players who update but don't own the pack. These chairs work in those scenarios, so if they don't work for you, it's because your game does not have the required resources from the patch to work. Nothing I can do about that.

  16. I loved the idea of having rocking chairs, but what we were given doesn't exactly fit many build styles and certainly doesn't go with anything from Eco Lifestyle. Thank you!
