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.
