Feel That Fabric Sofa Set Redux

When I was doing updates for my old content, I came across my old recolours of the basegame sofas. Boy oh boy did they make me cringe. They needed updating for the toddler patch but since I don't use them anymore I decided to redo them, and but redo I mean edit the original EA mesh and make a new set of sofas. So what we have here is somewhere in between a mesh edit and a new mesh, and now a sofa set I will proudly use once again.

Note: If you have the old versions and still like them, great! However I am no longer supporting that upload (i.e. I am not updating it). If you want to update yourself you are more them welcome to, but there will be no 'official' update from me.

The Build/Buy items feature:
  • Basegame compatible
  • non-default
  • 3 styles: armchair, loveseat and 3 seat sofa
  • Available in 24 my fabric textures
  • find items easily using phrase "PC" or "Fabric" in search bar (try this tutorial to easily find my sets)
  • custom thumbnails
  • Pricing  and polycount  for new meshes as follows:
    - 3 Seat Sofa  ($300, 450)
    - Love Seat  ($190, 406)
    - Arm chair ($160, 334)

Police Precinct 15

Finally I have gotten around to uploading this baby. The default police station just was not up to par so it was inevitable I would rebuild it. But with these special lots come issues and I had quite a few with the cells and the inmates not staying in them (this may still be an issue). After some tweaking and play-testing then more tweaking, I am happy enough to share it. Be aware, its not perfect and will probably lag on lower end computers because of the size and sims on the lot at once, but its a big improvement over the original.
To place this lot you either need a mod to travel to the lot, or have a sim in the police career. once there, you need to use the cheat "bb.enblefreebuild" to access build/buy mode then from there you can access your library to replace the old building. Any inmates currently on the lot will be misplaced and will hopefully be in the cells next time you load the lot (but not all the time). If they aren't its a side effect of editing these special lots, so just be aware.

The lot features:
  • All police amenities
  • gym
  • logic room
  • caffeteria

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.

UPDATED: Atwood Dining - Content Collection Addon

Update 22/02/2017: When attempting to fix the display cabinet, the tuning name was changed to one that required GTW. This has now been fixed for those without that EP. 
Update 9/02/2017: Some people were reporting issues with seating positions and actions failing with the anemone round table, it has since been tested and fixed. Please redownload either the individual file or the merged package. 
Updated 21/01/2017: With the toddler patch breaking a few things, I have taken the opportunity and gone through and updated my sets to fix issues and generally improve on some things. Here, I have updated all seating with tags and toddler rigs, and also fixed the display cabinet so you can grab items from behind the glass easily.
Update 1/10/2016: It was brought to my attention that the hippeastrum vase did not have a unique footprint (was linked to calla vase from Myra Living), this has now been fixed. You can either download the updated merged file, or grab the individual file at the SFS link at the bottom of the post.

With the addition of round tables with backyard stuff allowing me to take the rig and slot resources without having to tediously make my own, I can do what I have always planned to do: a round table in the style of mt anemone tables from my Atwood Living collection. So in order to make it a little more fleshed out, I added a few display pieces and stuff specific to a dining room. This is not a perfect match as my wood tones have improved since then, so have my fabric choices, but it still goes very well with Atwood, as well as any of my other custom content.

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

Blandco No More: Updated Solid is Sensational & Wood You Love My Kitchen Recolours

Update 6/02/2017 - Fixed for toddler patch so they will now interact with the counters and islands correctly for the ‘play in’ interaction instead of it not executing properly. Also changed out wood counter texture so it matches solid counter colour. 
Update 14/12/2015 - I exported the wrong DDS format for 2 of the wood cabinets, so please re-download the wood kitchen to get the updated file for the 2 cabinets. 

I absolutely love the kitchens in TS4, way better then TS3 kitchens, but CAS would have made them perfection. So I decided to take my favourite kitchen, the BlandCo style, and recolour them in some wood and solid colours. They were released some time ago and dubbed Solid Is Sensational Painted Kitchen and Wood You Love My Kitchen. Since EA added dishwashers, I have finally got around to updating these officially (you could use S4S to do a batch fix previously) but I wanted to do more then just an update. So by popular demand, I have not only updated for dishwashers, added 2 more solid colours, 3 counter top colours, I have also provided a package file of the cabinets with the shader fix akin to what plasticbox at MTS has done. I have included a non-shader fixed one because I have found when items like fridges are placed under the cabinets, they go dark, so this is a win-win situation.

Nordshine Seating - City Living Add-on

Update 01/02/2017: Updated for toddlers by updating rigging. I have also changed bech seat so it works as a loveseat now so sims don't sit through the armrests. Also fixed issue where sims could only use 2 of the 3 seats for the 3 seat sofa. 
With The addition of the new EP, there was quite a few items that were nice........... but needed more variations and style additions. One of those sets was the NordShine Single and Double, an armchair and love seat respectively. They had a solid design, some nice colours, but as usual, there was no 'full set' of seating which does limit its usability. Well I went about fixing that with this add-on set where I not only added some more colours, but also 3 other seating options: a symmetrical love seat, 3 seat sofa, and a bench seat. This brings the total number in this set from 2 to 5. Very much an improvement.
