Cats and Dogs Siding - Recoloured with 44 Colour Options





I really enjoying the Cats and Dogs EP, especially the build content. However, the colour choices of the siding left a lot to be desired. So I recoloured it for more variety, and for use with my other siding too. Now I get so much more use out of all the walls with the added colour combos that are possible. I don't think i will need to make for siding for quite some time.

Sofa and Bedding S4S Batch fix

If you don't already know, there is a batch fix with the new Sims 4 Studio to solve the playability issues with comfort items after the patch for Cats and Dogs changed some resources. You can find the information here with a link to the forum to download it (you will need to sign up for a free account)

This should solve the issue until I have had a chance to investigate what needs updating and how to do it.

Cats and Dogs is here and with it (apart from all the breakages) is a whole bunch of new content. i fell in love with one of the flooring and had to recolour in more natural tones for my use. Here it is an its going to get a lot of use in my game along with the Gymnasium flooring I made from a CL flooring.

  • Basegame compatible
  • 30 style variations
  • Custom thumbnails
  • found in Wood Flooring category of Build Mode
  • costs $4
  • Credit to FaerieDustSims and pooklet for the actions and colour palette that formed the basis for these styles

PSA

I am going to cover this before it even starts:
I am very happy for people to message telling me what is broken, but please tell me in what way. If you just state the obvious, I then need to spend more time figuring it out myself. This updating is going to take a lot of time already so if you message and help out, please provide more then “________ is broken in my game”. That really isn’t helpful and just gives me more work to do. If your game wont start, great! That’s useful information. Means i can take that out of my game to test other stuff. If you get script errors, or the game crashes when you click on it, even if your sim stomps on the ground trying to use an object. All useful information. This is important, even more so with this patch due to its far reaching changes.
This also goes for anything outside of patch issues as well. The amount of comments I get here like this is just ridiculous. Don’t be like those people. 

Edit: I currently know about the bed and sofa issue. It seems the sofas may cause problems without the updated rigging, so it may be best to remove that until S4S does a batch fix or I update my content.

Rambler Leather Jacket - Version 2.0


Well, i really don't know what to say other then this is a remake of one of my earlier CAS creations. A lot has changed since the release of TS4 and a lot of my stuff is outdated, so it was time to remake it. Anyway, I separated the jacket from the biker outfit from basegame, retextured it and voila! New jacket for guys. I really do love how this scrubbed up compared to the original.

Ghoulish & Ghastly - Vampire Pack Plants and Trees unlocked


This is a bit of an additional upload to accompany the buildmode addon I released on the weekend. I am always in dire need of more plants for landscaping, so any unlocked plants mod I find I grab. However I couldn't find one for the Vampires GP so I decided to unlock the usable world flora myself. This does not unlock everything. There are just some things that are either low poly, oversized, or not worth unlocking. I came out with 17 items. It looks like a lot of assets are shared with Outdoor retreat, so if you don't have that pack, you can still enjoy some of the plants used in that world since they were duplicated and included here.

Ghoulish & Ghastly - Vampire Pack Buildmode Addons


I finally picked up the Vampire Game Pack when it went on sale a few months ago because I wasn't sold on having Vlad roam around turning unsuspecting sims into creatures of the night. I did want all the build items that came with it, so now I have mods to curb those enthusiastic vampires and new build content. I do love the content, but the lack of sizes available let a lot to be desired. They were all new designs though, so I went ahead and made some additional sizes and styles to give a bit more choice and variety. The way the items were mapped did make it a bit of a struggle to do so, but I got there and now have some fine addons to work with.

Slim and Cuffed - Set of Jeans for guys



I am in the process of updating/remaking all of my clothing. CAS has changed so much since the introduction of TS4 and it about time I addressed some of the niggley issues, as well as improve on some older concepts. This however is a new item. I really loved the jeans from the bowling back, but wanted more variation. I decided to take the texture and apply it to one of my favourite sets of pants; the cropped base-game pants. I abuse them and wanted a jeans version. So here it is. 

The clothing item features:
  • basegame compatiblity
  • Non-default
  • 10 colour options
  • available for teen to adult men
  • Labeled as masculine (can use used on female sims by removing filter)
  • found by default under the Jeans filter
  • Disabled for random
  • Custom thumbnails
  • can be found by default in everyday and party (but can be used in other categories by removing the filter in CAS)
This can be used on bodies other then masculine male, but just be aware that the mesh is not optimised for the other body frame type much like all other items converted from men to women with the unisex patch. I have not disabled them as someone might find a use but you will only find them under the masculine filter or if you remove the filter from the search bar in CAS.

Bradford Industries Inc. - GTW Science Facility


I thought I would upload this as part of my makeover of the worlds which i am slowly in the process of. I always loved the science career, but the lot was less then inspirational. Taking cues from where I have worked before, i came up with this more modern science facility to allow your sims to reach the epitome of the science career. I have been play-tested to the best I can, but like all career lots, there is no requirement list so it may not be perfect. However, it has worked well for me. Below is the info you need to know.

The lot features:
  • All science amenities
  • office
  • cafeteria
  • warehouse
  • inventor room
  • foyer

You can find the house on the gallery under my origin ID: peacemaker_ic. Be sure to turn on "custom content" filtering in advanced options.


If you don't want to use the gallery, you can download the house from one of the download links below.

To install into your game, Extract the archive then navigate to The Sims 4 folder in My Documents. Find the Tray folder and place ALL of the files you extracted from the archive into it. Open your game and find the home in your library, just as if you dl'd it directly from the gallery. Ensure "include custom content" is active in advanced options if lot includes cc.

Drapery Delights - Curtain Set


Curtains are one type of object i find lacking when it comes to TS4. I generally rely on CC or recolours to meet my needs, but when that failed I decided to make my own. This is the end result and I tend to use these everywhere now.

Due to the length of these posts and for ease of updating, you can find the download and info under the cut.

Broad Keystone Arch - 3 tile Maxis-edited Archway


Update September 2017: This arch couldn't be placed on low wall heights so that has ben remedied. Please re-download.

Something small this weekend. I whipped this up for myself because the lack of 3 tile arches is ridiculous when you are working with hallways that are equally as wide. So I edited the 2 tile keystone archway into a wider version. Luckily it didn't require a new wall cutout otherwise it would not have gotten done so quickly. It comes in all 3 of the base game colours (such a choice!) so if you want to recolour, you can use the 2 tile texture as a base. I would prefer recolours require my edited mesh, but since is an EA object, its fine if you don't just be sure to credit me for the original edit.This is quick and dirty so its not perfect, but does the job well enough for what I needed.

Details:

  • basegame compatible
  • 3 original colour options
  • costs $320
  • custom thumbnails
  • found is short door section of build mode
  • Polycount:
    - high/Medium: 356
    - Low: 148

UPDATED: Vast Entry Frame - 3 tile Maxis-Edited Archway


UPDATED September 24, 2017: It was brought to my attention the footprint didn't allow placement on low wall heights, this has now been fixed. Please redownload. 

Another little something I whipped up to compliment my 3 tile keystone arch. I needed a modern, sleek version for versatility so I made one from another basegame arch. Again, it is just an edit to make it 3 tile like my previous one. Hopefully some of you find a use for it.

Details:

  • basegame compatible
  • 5 original colour options
  • costs $250
  • custom thumbnails
  • found is short door section of build mode
  • Polycount:
    - high/Medium: 72

Willow Creek Makeover - Community Lots



After a long absence due to work, I finally have some free time to share some of my creations I have that are sitting around. Because of cats and dogs, I am holding off on any object content sets due to the sheer amount of updating I am expecting will need to be done, but I have plenty of other things I can share. One of those is the community lots I built for Willow Creek. These are some of my absolute favourite community creations and I hope they find good homes to be enjoyed more.

Been quiet and will be for a few months

Hi, just thought i would let people know I currently have limited access to my gaming computer and this blog. I am currently working in the middle of the ass end of nowhere on a 2 week, 1 week roster leaving little time for Sims and pretty much everything else. So please be patient if you have questions and I will get to them as soon as I am able.
As for new content that will come when I get time which is in limited supply. I am still here and will have more time once this contract is finished, but until then there wont be much content coming out.

Peace.

Mid-Century Abode: Add-on Bedroom Set


It was about time I did another bedroom. There was too many slim pickings with cc i have made that worked well and I have only done a few bed frames too. The thing that held me back was the bedding. Maxis bedding sucks, full stop. Its flat and unattractive, but I hate decor blankets because they don't animate, so are really only good for picture-taking rather then normal gameplay. I finally figured out how to re-mesh the bedding into a more pleasing shape, so expect future bedrooms to use this same bedding. Maybe one day I will get around to doing single beds, but that's not a priority for me.
