Vermilion Colonial



Due to work, I had very little time to finish some of my building WIPs. Now that my short-term contract is up for that job, I got a little spare time to finish them. This one was inspired by the red siding that came with the game and to also test out the roofing and to see what I could do with it. So this is what came out from that. 
Its a traditional colonial design with a gambrel roof capping off a 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom, contemporary interior house. There is an activity room, open-plan kitchen/diner, an open office and music room. It is for those that like classic design, but with a contemporary twist. 
You can find it in the gallery by searching for my Origin ID: peacemaker_ic or the hashtag #VermilionColonial, #PeacemakerIC, or #SimsationalDesigns. Check out the map picture (last in the slideshow) for the location this house was built for, however you can place it on any 30x40 lots.

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.

Sleek Pompadour - Female to Male Hair Conversion and Edit for TS4


This is a busy weekend for sharing creations. There was my followers gift of 6 items yesterday, and now for my first TS4 CAS creation! This is actually out of my comfort zone, but I really wanted the female Pompadour hair for guys. I actually found one that was converted, but seeing it in-game, it was just too high (EA loves poofy hair). So I decided to convert it myself and edit it to be a bit lower. The process of converting shorter hairs actually requires importing into Milkshape to fix tiny issues like the back of the neck and the forehead/cheek area due to the different shape of female and male heads. So it was a little extra work, but looks awesome in my game and is one of my fave hairs now.

This hair features:
  • basegame compatibility
  • comes with all 18 basegame hair colours
  • fully hat-compatible
  • comes with 10 additional hair colours 
                - Blonde: strawberry, dirty, and platinum
                - Brown: medium-dark, medium, and light
                - Misc: white, purple, green, and blue

There are 2 separate downloads for this hair, the package containing the mesh and basegame textures, and an additional package for the 10 recolours. You need the mesh file for the addon colours to work. So if you want all the colours, download both files. The archives also contain the colour preview images for reference.

3000+ Followers Gift - 6 New Clothing Items for Your Guys






If you told me I would have 3000+ followers just over a year and a half after joining tumblr, I would not have believed them. Actually, I still don't believe it myself but here I am. I am just so grateful there are so many people out there that enjoy my content enough to follow me. I don't create to be popular or to get followers, its my creative outlet, so it means a great deal that people enjoy what I share as much as I do.
So, in celebration of this milestone (which happened while I was working with no time to finish up the meshes and post), I am sharing these belated gifts. What we have here is 6 of my latest meshes for YA-Adult guys for you to download. They include 4 tops and 2 bottoms.

These creations are:

The downloads are hosted on their separate pages with all the information listed there. Click on the links above to take you to the download. Again, thank you and I hope you enjoy :)

Tucked-In Henley Shirt - New Shirt for Guys


I really like Henley shirts. I have made quite a few for TS3 but they have all been retextures rather then the mesh the texture came from. The Henley was developed from the modified texture of the long-johns that came with Pets. So with this mesh, I decided to take the long-johns and turn them into a heley shirt with the 3D details. I had to make it a tucked in Henley though, due to UV map space restrictions. Even with that compromise, I think this turned out really well and is only of my fave shirts now, especially paired with my union jack or hobo-no-more jeans. These are no designed for lowrise jeans though, so if you want to pair them with that, you will need an accessory undershirt.

This top features:
  • basegame compatibility
  • 4 recolourable channels (shirt, collar, rolled sleeves, and button)
  • 3 preset styles with custom thumbnails
  • found in everyday, athletic and sleepwear categories of CAS

Untucked Shirt and Coat - New Top for Men


I really think trench coat, or any coat, are not a common site for guys in TS3. So I wanted to rectify that, even if its only one addition. I also wanted a more casual version, and this is what I came up with. I am really happy with the outcome, it is both formal and casual. I love using it.

This coat features:
  • basegame compatibility
  • 4 recolourable channels (coat, coat lapel, shirt, and shirt buttons)
  • 4 preset styles with custom thumbnails (style 1 has standard pattern tiling, style 2 have 2/3 size pattern tiling, and style 3 has 1/2 size pattern tiling)
  • found in everyday, formalwear and outerwear categories of CAS
The collar on this top is not perfect, it has bone assignment issues and that is due to the base mesh I used. I tried to make it better, but its as good as it is gonna get. Its really only apparent when the neck is moved to the far left or far right.

Tied Shirt and Vest - New Top for you Trendy Guys


I like ties, but I hate how they are really only used with really formal outfits or with short sleeve shirts. Honestly, tell me the last time you actually saw a guy wear a tie with a short sleeve shirt. Don't know? Me neither. I also love vests too, so I grabbed 2 store meshes and 2 game meshes, worked my Frankenstein magic and this is the end result. Not bad at all if I do say so myself.

The top features:
  • basegame compatibility
  • 4 recolourable channels (vest, vest strap, shirt and tie)
  • 3 preset styles with custom thumbnails
  • found in everyday and formal categories of CAS
I did something different with the styles on this one. I messed around with the tiling of the patterns. Style 1 has standard tiling of patterns, style 2 the pattern is about 2/3 the size, and style 3 the pattern appears at half the size as style 1. So if you have a pattern you want to appear smaller, try one of the other 2 styles and see how it looks. Also, a special thanks to jorgha-haq for letting me use Newt as a model :)

Leather Jacket and Hoody - New Top for Your Guys


This was a project that has come of of my hatred of accessory jackets. I really don't like them. They clip, have horrible textures if you don't run a HQ mod and are way too baggy for me. I know many people love them, but I am not one of them. I wanted a leather jacket and hoody and because of my loathing of accessory jackets, I made this; a combo I have never seen before. The jacket is a de-outfit-ied Shotwitme Music Career jacket frankenmeshed with a Diesel hoody with new sleeves added and a bit of a texture tweak. I really love the outcome and will see this being used by all my boys (when not playing TS4).

The top features:
  • basegame compatibility
  • 4 recolourable channels (leather jacket, hoody, hood drawstrings, and hoody zipper)
  • 3 preset styles with custom thumbnails
  • found in everyday, formal, athletic and outerwear categories of CAS
This is not perfect. There is a little bit of clipping around the hands depending on the angle and movement of the hand, as well as the hoody. It is as good as it is gonna get, but you should know anyway.

I Like Short Shorts - New Bottoms for YA-Adult Guys


Today I bring you you and edit of an outfit that came with the sportwear set from the store. I converted and edited the vintage basketball outfit to be a bottom-only part of shorts with a 70's feel. I really like how they turned out, even though they are probably not everyone's style.

The shorts feature:
  • basegame compatibility
  • 3 recolourable channels (shorts, band and shorts details)
  • 3 preset colours with custom thumbnails
  • found in everyday, athletic, swimwear and sleepwear categories of CAS

Not So Skinny Chinos - New Bottoms for YA-Adult Guys


I tried. I really, really did. But I just can't bring myself to make skinny fitting pants. This was yet another attempt at trying to make pants that tuck into shoes. They just looked so odd, so I made these instead. So the name changed to reflect it. These were the awesome showtime rolled up pants with the 3D belt, which I added the buckle and new bottoms (because i don't use rolled up pants in my game). I am really happy how they turned out, and its a nice change from all the jeans I have made.

These pants feature:
  • basegame compatibility
  • 3 recolourable channels (pants, belt, and buckle)
  • 5 preset colours with custom thumbnails
  • found in everyday, formal and outerwear categories of CAS
The archive contains both the sim3pack and package files along with hte preset preivew image. Choose your preferred file type and you can delete the rest. Enjoy :)

New Navigation Menus Added!

Hey my fellow simmers!

I have finished my new navigation system (since blogger really doesn't make it easy). The new menus are (hopefully) easier way of navigating my blog. Above you will find TS3 and TS4 links that are broken into items and CAS sections. The link names are hopefully self-explanatory where you will be directed to the content tagged the same way. I was considering a catalog, but that may come at a later date if i deem it necessary.
The TS4 sections will mimic TS3 but will be expanded as new content is added. You can also find my tutorials and Misc links as well as other places you can find me. I think this was the perfect way to clean up unwanted clutter and organise this place. I really wanted sub sub-menus, but I couldn't find a good code or do it myself, so this is the compromise. It does mean everything is just a hover and a click away though. If you have any problems or can't find anything let me know by leaving a comment here.

Peacy.

Under Construction

Hello all!

Just wanted to let you all know I am making a few changes to this blog, mainly for organisational reasons. I am currently in the process of coding a new dropdown menu system which is currently not finished so no links will work. Bare will me until I finish it. You can still use the siteas normal using the labels or pages section. Shouldn't be too long until this small update is finished, but hopefully it will make navigation so much easier!

Peacy.
