Craftsman chic: Can four be a magick number too?

It only took
a year and a half 
to get back to this set.

Your patience is about 
to be
(hopefully)
rewarded.

That's right bubbies:
More Grant Park.
MOAR.
ahem.

Let's get right into 
exactly what you're going to download.
Cos ...
it's a lot.
64 pieces to be exact.
Accurate, yet anal.

hehe he said anal

Attic window and vents have been placed lower so they'll
fit the gable. If you want to use a specific window/vent, you might
have to alter your square count so it centers properly. Attic windows
align to the bottom of the original windows.
The counter, privacy, special, and fireplace windows all align
to the top of the regular windows.
Left and Right window flank perfectly to the sides of other, regular width, windows.
These are perfect for placement near corners and perpendicular walls.

Part 1 windows - #1 request: make them also 2x1 - so here you go. 
That's a lot of windows.
A.
Lot.
Phew.
But wait ... there is more.
MOAR.
Part one alternate placement - popular request! Narrow doors
work perfectly near corner and perpendicular walls.
Another popular request. This version has 4 channels to CASt!
Narrow archway is great for a narrow hallway. Won't cause wall bleed.
The modular arch works well for especially long archway needs.
Oh sure - you had the fence/railing - but NOW you get a gate. Two in fact.
Wow - this is a lot of stuff!
Oh - but we're not done yet!!
Okay - shoot me. I couldn't get the diagonal perfect. EA didn't even offer
a diagonal option. Sheesh!
Column sleeves for options. OPTIONS PEOPLE. Now it isn't even
necessary to have an archway. God love me.
What self respecting Craftsman wouldn't have a buffet?
All self respecting Grant Park homes have one of these.
So there is it.
all 64 motherlovin' pieces.

If you can't make a okay looking Craftsman
with these four parts,
well then you're playing a board game!

Let's have a looksee,
shall we?

  2. OMG!! You really have spoiled us with this set & what an awesome set it is. Thank You for sticking with Sims 3 Mwah!
    Ps Will you be doing a set of different mouldings? hint hint ;p

  3. Thank you both! Gardenof ... not sure if I will include a new moulding in Part 5 . . . but you never know ;)

    1. Speaking of including things in part 5, can you include a version of your pocket doors that actually open and close and are cloned from the "Into The Future" door called "Majel Bulwark Sliding Door by Van Allen Decor"?

    2. I will take this request into consideration. I am not familiar with what it would take or if the bone assignments will make sense to me, but if there is a functioning base that also works for actual pocket doors? That sounds awesome!

  4. These are gorgeous! I can't wait to play with them :)
    Thank you

  5. Everything about this is wonderful. It was some of my favorite custom content for TS3! It sounded as though you weren't terribly keen on converting to TS4... Must we beg?! Is there nothing that you can be tempted with?! Could the world be so cruel?! I haven't had any luck with requests, and I do so long for this treasure trove of architectural goodies...

  6. Thank you for your praise. This set is so extensive and took so much time to complete that in the process of trying to finish it - it robbed me of a great deal of the joy that I receive from creating. I have one last set in me for the Grant Park series - I am not sure when I will start it or if any of the pieces will be made for Sims 4 at the same time.

    There is hope though. My TOU makes it possible for others to convert this set and with any luck, it won't be long before someone has a go at it and possibly improve upon it. Sims 4 windows can be anywhere on the wall which is a huge advantage.

    I am having so much fun with this set, thank you so much for making it.

  8. Would it be at all possible to have these converted to TS2? That would be awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  9. That would be awesome ... TS2 is a game I have never played, nor do I ever plan on playing. Tinkle has done the first two parts of this set - I don't know if anyone has attempted parts 3 & 4. The TS2 tag (right top) links to TS2 conversions I am aware of linked in the original post.
