Colourful Cottage Starter


Hey everyone! I have another new home for you all today. This one is actually my first starter. I liked the shotgun style of the houses that Maxis built, but I thought they were a bit drab. This changes that. Nice and cheery, your sims will forget all about having the fix the appliances all the time.

The home features:
  • 1 bedroom
  • 1 bathroom
  • Open plan living/dining/kitchen
  • price: $16,702
  • location can be found on the last image in the slideshow
You can find the home in the gallery by searching for my origin ID peacemaker_ic, or the tags #PeacemakerIC, and #SimsationalDesigns, #ColourfulCottage. 

For those who don't want to dl from the gallery, click on one of the alternate 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 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.

Edmundton Townhouse


Hey everyone! I have a new home for you all today. I have been sitting on this house for a while and thought it was about time I shared it. The home is a townhouse style, and was built to hopefully replace the Goth Manor in Willow Creek, but placed across the road. CC happened though, so it became a testing bed for new walls I made. So yes, this lot requires custom content made by me (only wallpapers). If you don't want a cc game, you can dl and add the wallpapers you want, or just download the wallpapers i made prior to installing the lot via the launcher or the archive provided below.
It is a three story home with 4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, 2 living rooms, modern kitchen and formal dining. The third floor can be hard to use sometimes due to the camera acting weird because of the mansard roofing, but most of the other amenities are downstairs, so you don't need to use that floor that much.
The home features:
  • 4 bedrooms
  • 3.5 bathrooms
  • 2 living rooms
  • study
  • home gym
  • formal dining and modern kitchen
  • price: $169, 205
  • location can be found on the last image in the slideshow

V-Neck Sweater


A new week and a new upload! This time I have a new piece of clothing for you all. Frankenmeshing is still relatively hard to accomplish, but mesh manipulation is very doable. This was the rolled sleeve tee loosened and retextured to give you this lovely V-Neck Sweater. I really love it. The sweater is actually inspired by my favourite TS4 sweater, but minus the deep v-neck (which I like calling a douche-neck). I am really happy with the outcome and i hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

The clothing item features:
  • basegame compatibility
  • Non-default
  • 20 options: 5 styles with 4 variations each
  • custom swatches to easily identify each style
  • available for teen to elder men
  • found by default under sweater filter
  • can be found by default in everyday and formal categories (but can be used in other categories by removing the filter in CAS)
The archive contains the package file and the image of the styles included. Just drop it in your mods folder and it will show up :)

Just a Public Service Annoucement

Firstly, hello fellow simmers! Thank you for reading, this contains some important information for some of you. 

For those experiencing random crashing with my TS4 clothing, whether in CAS or in-game, there is this helpful little tool created by Cmar over at MTS that should help fix it for you. Since these are isolated issues with only some users, I see no need re-releasing the items with this fix. It is easy to do yourselves with the helpful too. It basically just fixes 'missing' bone assignments which are not used. Head over to this thread to download. If you are having issues with other items, see if the tool works for those too. 

For those experiencing issues with my walls were some, if not all walls show up as a question mark. I want to apologise, but I have only recently came across the reason for this. I found it on the S4S forums:


**Testing suggests that walls which are not resized correctly will show up with question mark images in place of your new images for some players.  For this reason, wall images should be resized so they match the size of EA's wall images.**


It is due to my wall images not being scaled down to Maxis size. Unfortunately I will not be remaking my walls to Maxis sizes so they work for everyone. The reason being is it will ruin the quality of the image, especially the patterns. I cannot bring myself to do that as they would be completely unusable for me. I am not sure why the issue occurs, but my guess is it is much like the intel graphics card issues that cause CAS crashes. So hence fourth, I will put warnings on the walls. I am sorry for the inconvience and I had hoped it was an easier and less destructive solution, but because it would ruin the quality of the walls in my eyes, I will not apply the 'fix'. I hope you all understand. I guess it was a choice made to increase performance, one I wouldn't have made myself.

Weathered Brick 03


Next up is the second of 3 weathered brick textures for interior and exterior use. I love brick, and I wanted more choice, and now you all have more choice too! And in multiple colours! It is a win-win scenario all-round.

The walls feature:
  • basegame compatibility
  • 7 colour variations
  • custom thumbnails
  • found in masonry category of Build Mode
  • costs $5
  • available for all wall heights
Note: These walls are NOT scaled to EA's wall texture sizes. I wish to maintain the quality of the texture and this cannot be done so with EA's texture sizes. Some people experience a bug where the unscaled walls show up as a texture with a question mark. So be aware that if you download these walls and experience the glitch, these walls are not for you. I have no plans to scale the texture down because of the loss of quality.

Classic Wall Set - Grasscloth 02


I have some new walls for you all! Up second is another grasscloth pattern. I really really like grasscloth (and you may have seen), it adds a textural element to a room. Don't expect the grasscloth to be seamless horizontally, that is how grasscloth comes naturally. It adds to the charm of the wallpaper and makes it one of my favourite walls to decorate with. So if you don't like that grasscloth isn't seamless, i would advise against you downloading this wallpaper, Grasscloth is not seamless due to the method of production, and neither are these. They are still lovely, but not everyone's cup of tea.

The walls feature:
  • basegame compatibility
  • 12 colour variations
  • custom thumbnails
  • found in wallpaper category of Build Mode
  • costs $3
  • available for all wall heights

Classic Wall Set - Grasscloth 01


Here is the grasscloth pattern I made for TS3 converted. I really like grasscloth, it adds a textural element to a room. Even though grasscloth is not seamless horizontally due to it not being printed by actually woven, it adds to the charm of the wallpaper and makes it one of my favourite walls to decorate with. I doubt this will get many dl's because people will think it should be seamless, but to those people i will say this: If you think grasscloth should be seamless, then you don't know what grasscloth is.

The walls feature:
  • basegame compatibility
  • 13 colour variations

Classic Wall Set - Cherry Blossom Birds


I have a problem. I am addicted to making walls. But you all get to share in my addiction, so it isn't that bad, is it? Anyway, I have had this image for quite some time (in the pink) and always wanted to turn it into a pattern for TS3. It failed miserably, but it hung around in my pictures folder. I came across it again and decided to mess with it some more and came up with these pretty walls. My faves would be the coral coloured one, and the duck egg blue one. They are just so pretty, and formal while being playful at the same time. I imagine these would be used as a feature wall in a master bedroom of some Victorian house. I might just have to decorate that myself.

The walls feature:
  • basegame compatibility
  • 6 colour variations
  • custom thumbnails

Classic Wall Set - Willow


More walls! Next up is a willow pattern. I I remember someone made this for TS3, can't remember who though. I found the RL wallpaper and had to have it for my game. I have always loved willow trees, there is something mysterious and majestic about them. It was a hard pattern to recolour though, so it is only available in soft colours.

Classic Wall Set - Birch Trees


Here are some more contemporary walls for you all! I love birch trees and thought this would be an awesome addition to my game. I can see them going really well with the modern rug in the bright colours too (that was completely by accident). It is a simplified design that adds some visual interest and a pop of colour or more muted depending on your choice.

The Iron Victorian


Today I bring you another new home from my rather eclectic mix of houses in my game. This one is a particular favourite of mine. I love all types of architecture, but i tend to shy away from victorian-esque homes because I find it hard to pull off the design. With TS4 I thought I would give it a go and this is the end result. I think I might move the Goths in here.

The home features:
  • 4 bedrooms
  • 2.5 bathrooms
  • 2 living rooms
  • study
  • eat-in kitchen
  • price: $227, 069
  • location can be found on the last image in the slideshow
You can find the home in the gallery by searching for my origin ID peacemaker_ic, of the tags #PeacemakerIC, #SimsationalDesigns, and #IronVictorian.
