Surface Tension

It's the end of an era. TS3 is no more.
PFFT.
Riiiiggght. 
This IS the end ... table.
This is a celebration of an unsung hero.
Really, it's not that exciting.
It holds stuff.
You kind of ignore it.

But EA makes them big.
Real big.

Who has room for a 3 foot by 3 foot table in their home
that is also waist high?
No one.
That's who.

I bring to you,
the end table.
 Petite.
Holds little.
Impractical.
But stylish.
!!!

12 Styles
with some extras and even a bonus.
A bonus!
See how much I love you??
Star Crossed and Lens Flair each have a matching coffee table
Phloid's Leg has a matching coffee table
Schwing! Addition matched the Chess set chairs, so by request, they've become tables too!
Extra coffee, console and C table
(which is designed to pass through objects for cheat free placement)
They stack, yo!
This set was inspired by every time I do these promo shots.
Oh my ghad. 
Not one table from EA could sit next to a 'living chair' and 
NOT dwarf it. 
So sad.

That's not to say that every table will look good next to every chair.
That's why you have options, my friend.
Real.
Honest to goodness.
Options.

I know. You're welcome.

Take a look at these in action.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Some detail of the glass. Notice the way the edges refract.
If using for stills and you want a strong reflective surface, use the glass floors from ITF expansion
Have to admit this glass is pretty cool looking!
 I am happy with this set on a number of levels. 
The effects with the glass exceeded my expectations - wildly.
Hope you can find a table to enhance your game.

This was an especially challenging year for both Heidi and I.
Heidi hosts my downloads on her site.
We both use the blogger interface, but we pay yearly for file hosting.
A small fee in the big picture, but still a huge challenge given the hurdles this year presented.
Thank you!

  6. I love your downloads. And thanks for listing the CC you use. I really love some patterns you use. Especially the fabrics that look really appropriate for the game, an improvement on maxis. I know it would be impossible to know in every picture where you got your patterns from but could you list some on this site or tumblr? Thanks. Any direction as to where to look would be appreciated.

  7. Thank you - the CASt system is a godsend! I can't imagine how TS2 put up with recolors and I struggle with the idea that EA thought it was 'okay' to go back to it in TS4. Talk about a downgrade.

    I try to credit where I can because there is so much talent in our community that needs to be celebrated. Sadly - this is where patterns fall short - that patterns have no description so they cannot be easily credited is a massive oversight. If it is a newly acquired set, I have attempted to link it, but most I have no idea where they came from. I did make a post about this topic on tumblr a while back here and some links here . The list is very sadly lacking, but hopefully a good start. Thanks again!

    (BTW, the Sofa photo at the top is an unreleased pattern from Exotic Elements. I think it's brilliant and pray she releases it someday!)

  8. Keep an eye on my Tumblr - Heidi has given me permission to release her silk patterns. She's never been happy with them, but I think they are stunning!

    And - Thanks, Snewpeia!
