You're minding your own business
when a patch borks your wares.
It worked before ... tested and approved,
but come Tuesday,
We're all adults here.
(grumble grumble grumble)
Let's just take this as an opportunity.
A time to reflect on what could have been better.
Well, after a bit of cursing.
The Kaleidoscope rug.
Broken after a patch regarding
Improved lighting? Great!
My rug? Say whaaaaa?
I think what is worse is that no one told me.
That means no one uses it.
Turns out it was an easier fix than I thought.
That didn't stop me from tearing the thing apart trying to find the problem.
So suffice it to say, this is fixed.
Further, where I am not prone to scaling objects in S4
I made this large
(thinking like a true blue S3 creator)
Now this rug is also in half size.
|See? Both sizes. Merveilleux!|
As a 'mea culpa'
I am including
Kilim Series 3 & 4
Then came another patch.
Someone at EA got the bright idea
to change the numbering of lights
effectively breaking the cloned resource links
causing a script error.
(I hope I just said that right ... who cares - EA face planted).
This affected all sorts of lamps ...
While many of you already probably batch fixed these lights,
I hate to tell you, but ...
I improved them.
Broken seams from importing into Blender from Milkshape
(yes, I like milkshape ... it brings all the boys to the yard)
LOD lighting problems, strange rainbow coloration ...
You deserve better.
I have learned a great deal more with the assistance of Peacemaker IC
and fiddling in Blender & S4S.
So the three affected lights are fixed.
I was so happy, I decided to challenge myself to do
three wall height ceiling lights.
And upon trying, I regretted it, but I carried on.
My "In The Garden" lights from 2011
have been greatly upgraded.
|The improved, and renamed "Central Library Pendant" in 6 styles|
|The Star Lantern - 4 styles|
If you follow me on Tumbr
*(you best be following me)
you also know I am working on a few new sets.
One of my other lights
the "Lean Lamp" from 2012 Blog Blog Blog set
fit the style of my future AHWb5 Living room.
Problem is - I don't own one
(though Design Within Reach did their part to coax me
via a random email directed to me personally ...
not creepy whatsoever)
so I have converted and updated this light for S4
and am including it here.
|The - what I now know to be, the - "Grasshopper" lamp - aka Lean Lamp in 12 styles|
Seeing it on DWR did alert me that this was out of scale, but
truth be told, I didn't know at the time it was a popular MCM design.
Let's take a look at some photos of these items in game,
You get the idea.

Download the lights:
The original download pages now have updates and updated zips that include the corrected files.
Stay tuned for new items soon. Those sets will include S3 items
(and a couple of these updated lights for S3 too)
