Building a smaller Craftsman home. I had wanted to keep this on a 20x20, but it fills the lot completely right now. I really don’t want to move it to a 20x30 but there’s just no room for landscaping or anything (the back has the same amount of free space as the front). I would use a 25x25 for myself, but I’m guessing most people don’t like odd lot sizes.
Ok, so these sat in my DL folder for ages… They are finally ready to go
What do I have for ya’ll
Frat Bros Fencing Jr. and the Frat Bros Railing
The Fence and Railing set accompany the Uni Life Railing with the tall posts, I simply shortened it for porches and made a railing for modular stairs.
Shop door for Savvy Seller collection
I took the shop door and made it work with that new Premium shit from the store. It does not have the sign because I couldn’t get it to work right. Also shadows seem to be borky for some oddity. It was apparent on the original door. Requires the Savvy Seller set. (I need testers on this please)
This railing and fencing is fantastic. I love Maxis-match sets!
OH WHAT A LOVELY HOUSE YOU HAVE THERE :D
Nice job on the interior!
I always find pattern-making so rewarding. I agree too, I always want to test them out on homes i just finished decorating LOL
It really is rewarding; these are the first I’ve ever made and I’m really enjoying myself.
I really like the diamond polka dots! <3
Thanks :) I wanted more interesting polka dots and figured it was a good opportunity to learn something new. It’s been fun and very educational!
I made some patterns today—a couple wood ones and a diamond polka dot. I especially like the wood… I think it’s time for a re-decorating binge.
So I was trying to make some patterns for myself and, per the advice I read in pattern and texture tutorials for Mac users, was using Aorta to convert my image to .dds. The problem I was running into was that Pattern Packager (in Mono) crashed every time I tried to load the .dds file. I tried using SquishDDS to do the conversion, but had the same issue.
I found my solution in a developer who offers prebuilt application bundles of GIMP that come with a lot of useful plugins for photo editing—including the one to open and save .dds files. Super easy for Mac users! Hopefully someone else can find this useful as well.
Well The Person of this SITE which is the creator of a furniture i share on my files treat me very badly cause i shared her creation! Actually i downloaded so many things on internet for the sims and i really liked that chair but i couldn’t remenber where it was coming from so then i decided to…
Hi, so I saw your post by chance when it had zero notes. I sent you a message and you posted your response…
…but then deleted it within the hour. I thought that meant you had second thoughts and had decided to change the way you share items and credit creators. But I noticed today, on your French apartments upload, that you had neglected to properly credit at least a few content creators. I used Custard and did some quick Google searches to find the original sources of some items you renamed and/or reuploaded:
1) “Elegant Chair (Meinkatz)” is actually ShinoKCR’s Elegant Homeoffice Chair. DOWNLOAD HERE
2) “Cottage Armchair (Meinkatz)” is actually ShinoKCR’s Shabby Living Armchair. DOWNLOAD HERE
If I missed anything not properly credited, hopefully someone else can let me know. I wasn’t familiar with these items before I saw them in your post but was able to find their original creators very easily—in less than 10 minutes. Since you told me (screenshot above) that you know how hard people work on their creations, I hope you will appreciate having the proper sources for these items and edit your post accordingly.
I accidentally left out the link to JaneSamborski’s Mass Transit Tiles. I fixed the CC list in the post here and on my downloads page, but I see that there’s one lone person who grabbed it before I caught my mistake. If that’s you—sorry!
This home is partially furnished. May use items from any/all EPs.
Custom content used/pictured (nothing included in the download):
You didn’t say whether you wanted exteriors or interiors specifically. For exteriors and houseplans, I mentioned in another ask a couple sites I like to use. I also Google architectural styles or features if I’m interested in something specific. I don’t use interior pictures as references when I’m building but I just like looking at them anyway; for that I like Georgiana Design, Victorian Houses, and Interior Porn.
I didn’t ask you anything but have a hug anyway :D
So someone told me that they didn’t get my reply to a message they had sent me. (is that a common problem with tumblr messages?) So if you asked me something and didn’t get a response please send it again. It’s not like I get hordes of messages over here so I do answer everything.
I dug this houseplan out of my absurdly large collection of house pictures and tried to re-create it. It’s somewhat fine, I think. Though I really wish those b5studio windows had a version centered on two tiles; they’re just perfect for Craftsman-style homes.
Also, I was just going to make this for myself and I’m not sure if I should bother uploading it; I feel like the layout might be weird for others. Do you find it annoying to play in a house with upstairs split-levels like this?
So these have been sitting in my inbox for AGES now:
I only ever post Sims-related stuff on here so I didn’t do them, but I held on to the messages because I appreciated the sentiment of getting them from these really excellent people. I was reminded of them today when omgtotallysims sent me a really funny message, so I thought it was a good time, literally months late to the party, to throw this up here:
1) My name is Sky.
2) I have a cat.
3) I’m allergic to my cat.
4) My four-month hiatus last year was spent wandering around Morocco.
5) I (not so) super secretly love the TS4 aesthetic and don’t understand why people are bitching about it.
I moved the Talbots into the gorgeous Sunset Beach House by fakehousesrealawesome in isla paradiso. I only redecorated a teensy bit because the house was already amazing and if you don’t already have it you should, just sayin’
Nice redecorating in the bedrooms!
