Cover All

 Back in 2010, I introduced this:
Sure for the time I was pleased
It got the job done
but there was something missing
something ...
finesse?
fortitude?
perhaps style?
Skill ... there we go - skill.

Cut to today. We're in a new era ...
Sims are all emotional ...
everything is candy colors ...
It's just ... great.
Except - how do I convert
that
thing.
???
...

Answer? I don't.
I remake it.
Look Ma, I'm LOWER poly count too!
This is what it should have looked like.
And it should have had a sibling.
 And cousins.
 
And parents ... or is it genetic donors (?) ...
(it's tough being completely politically correct these days)
but more about the rest of them in a moment.

Let's just stare at the original/remake for a moment ...
together:
is that comic sans? oh god no . . . . it's worse than I thought
Okay - quickly moving along ...
So back in 2011 I re-released some rugs on a new mesh
and then cut to 2015 and I am looking in old folders
and I find one set that was never converted ...

You may see where I am going with this ....

So a set starts to form.
It's still small at heart, but 
man is it large in file size.
(not poly size - file size)
First you get 18 new ottomans
(19 for S3 - one to recolor)
 
 You get a second, taller & narrower 
ottoman coffee table:
Then came the rug discovery - 
Kilim Series 2:
Then I discovered I had amassed 
quite a selection of rug textures ....
Finally I realized there was nothing to sit on
and as LGR points out - there are precious few chairs in S4
comparatively 
so I had to help rectify that:
Counter Stools are a MISC COMFORT category
Have a look at these items set up in rooms:
So go ahead.
Indulge your emotional sims
with some grungy worn textures.
All those candy colors are going to rot their teeth out.
Expose them to something with a history.

Kilim Set SIM3PACK

Again - these are large zipped files - sorry - it was confusing to break it up.

Enjoy bubbies!

Most of the stuff in the photos is either Game/Store/or found here,
but these are the CC items used:
photo 23 (S3): stove - Exotic Elements
photo 25 (S4): vase - Peacemaker / bird - Mango
photo 28 (S4) - bed, bedding, polygon silhouette animal paintings, end table, lamp - Peacemaker
Photo 29 (S4) - bar - ATS4
Photo 30 (S4) - Candles - Mango

Biology 202

My first original mesh from 2010
was the start of a long and continuing education.

Now we're up to Sims 4 and what better way to enter a new era
than with an old mesh ... remastered of course.

Gone is the awkward and stiff boxy shape
Gone, too, is the blurriness ... sorry
I know how much you like to squint. 

12 new images for both Sims 3 & 4:
Sims 3 version - wooden weight and metal hardware are CASt-able
Sims 4 version - each with a unique wooden weight/metal hardware textures
Sure - it's not a huge set, but 
I have to start somewhere.
sheesh

Add a little culture to your sims home in both 3 & 4
Sims 4 Living Room
Sims 3 Sitting Room
Sims 4 Kitchen
Sims 3 Loft Dining Area
So give you sims something to talk about
today . . .
cos you're never too old to learn. 

CC Used:
Picture 4: Lamp
Picture 5: Terrarium, Rug
Picture 6: Light
HUGE THANKS TO PEACEMAKER-IC - I have some sanity left thanks to you!
Sim 4 Recolorists - I will be posting the texture file on Tumblr shortly.

amuse bouche

Intended as a bit of a palate cleanser
from the Grant Park Pt.4 set,
this little set went from
micro to mini.

But first - a PSA:
Meet Hayley!
Hayley struggles with Non-Epileptic
Attack Disorder (NEAD).
You can read what that's like on her GoFundMe page.
Why is this important to me?
Why should this be important to you?

I understand struggle.
I understand feeling helpless in a situation.
As people in a community -
people who have an interest in gaming 
or more specifically - simulation gaming
Many of us also know of struggle - intimately.
In fact - I am going to be so bold as to say:
We found this game as a means of escaping our own 
frustrating lives.
Whether it's an iteration of mental illness,
a medical malady or mystery,
abuse or alienation,
we have come together because of this game
 to comfort each other with
our tales,
our talent,
our brilliance.
We need to have each others backs.
I ask that you help a simmer in need.
It doesn't have to be a weeks pay. 
Just what you can spare.
All contributions help - no matter how small
Even if that's a reblog of Hayley's updates
or your talent to help get word out.

Okay.
The set.
Objects based on real life items
found in the interweb
soooo reeeaaalll
You can almost touch them
but don't.

This set includes:
Three presets with three different tiling options
Three presets ... also with three different tiling options
DIY Table: 3 table bases & 3 table tops. The top has the slots.
The base is coded like a rug and will slide under the top with ease.
Have a look at this set
in its natural habitat:
cc used: stove, terrarium, counters (upcoming release): Exotic Elements
cc used: cactus - Gelina, geometric pattern - Peacemaker IC
cc used: chairs - Exotic Elements
Look at that glow! Woooooowwwww
Okay bubbies
Think this set can be useful to you?
Go ahead!
DOWNLOAD.

If you can help Hayley
Please DO!
Her life will be vastly improved with your support!
Thank you.
