The Mason Tudor



Time to make over Windenburg! My second lot I made for my save is this smaller Tudor that sits right next to The Burrow. It has just as much charm as its bigger brother, but its own little twist since this lot overlooks the water. Again, this home is unfurnished. When placed, the game doesn't recognise the correct height of the awning in the cover pic, so you will just need to move that up once placed.

The home features:
  • 3 bedrooms
  • 2 bathrooms
  • open plan living/dining/kitchen
  • price: $35,563 ($37,063 including lot price of $1,500)
  • 20x20 lot size
  • Unfurnished
This Home Uses content from:
  • Basegame
  • Outdoor Retreat
  • Get To Work
  • Get Together


You can find the house on the gallery under my origin ID: peacemaker_ic. 


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 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.

The Burrow - A Tudor House for Windenburg


It has been some time since I shared a house with you all. To be honest, I find it hard to complete them fully, with nice interiors and exteriors, so it is why you haven't shared a completed house in a while. So I have made the decision to upload house shells, simply because that is more doable and there wont be much cc, if any. I will still upload fully finished house, but that is when that actually happens once in a blue moon. So enjoy this lovely house as you explore the wonders of Windenburg

The home features:
  • 4 bedrooms
  • 3 bathrooms
  • open plan living/dining/kitchen
  • price: $38,427
  • 30x20 lot size
  • Unfurnished
This Home Uses content from:
  • Basegame
  • Holiday Celebration Pack (added via patches)
  • Outdoor Retreat
  • Get To Work
  • Get Together

Shaggy Waves - GT Female to Male Hair Conversion


It has been a while since I shared a hair with all of you. I guess I have had no need to make a lot of them given that there are more people working on content for guys these days (great news all around). However, when I got GT, I was not enamoured with any of the hairs on my favourite sim. I took a look at the female hairs and spotted this beauty that was ripe for conversion. So the first thing I did with the EP was not play it, but convert this hair XD It comes in all EA colours, and you have the option of downloading it with my natural shades. I have canned the unnaturals because they seem to be hit or miss depending on the hair texture. There is a little clipping which comes from these sorts of conversions, so be aware of that. Hair clips not matter what, so it is a tricky thing to fix. It is a little more noticeable on sims that have very narrow necks  and are really skinny with no muscle mass. I left it as-is because it really doesn't detract from this awesome hair for me.

Just a little note: this is not a basegame compatible hair. EA implemented coding like in TS2 and TS3 where content cloned from EP's are only usable by the people that own that particular pack. So to use this hair, YOU REQUIRE Get Together (it does not need to be installed though). I have no motivation to make this basegame compatible (not to mention the legal ramifications of converting EP/SP content for basegame use) so don't ask for it to be done, because I will not do it.

This hair features:
  • Requires Get Together EP
  • Available in all 18 basegame colours
  • Fully hat compatible
  • Additional 7 hair recolours:
                  Blonde: dirty, strawberry and platinum
                  Brown: light, medium-light, medium
                  Misc: white

There are 2 separate downloads for this hair, the package containing the mesh and basegame textures, and the package containing the mesh, basegame colours plus the additional recolours. You only need one package for the hair to work, you just need to decide if you want the additional hair colours or not. The archives also contain the colour preview image for reference (as seen above). The styles with the light blue border are the custom colours by me. Just extract the archive, and put the package file in your mods folder.

Peacemaker's Wainscotting

I miss CAS. Not as much as I thought, but when it comes to some aspects of the game, I really, really do. When it comes to walls, it is especially evident with wainscoting. I want to be able to pick the wainscoting and wall separately, but alas, that would mean millions of wall and wainscot combinations. I don't have the time or patience for that. So this is what I came up with: 3D wainscoting. It places like wall decor, is seamless (thanks to simsza for the shading tutorial link <3) and comes in a multitude of colours. It is not as versatile as walls because if its limitations around some windows and doors, but I found in usable enough to release it so others can enjoy it as well. 

The Build/Buy items feature:
  • basegame compatibility
  • non-default
  • 6 meshes in total with 52 colour options each (36 painted, and 16 wood):
  • find items easily using phrase "PC Wainscoting" in search bar
  • custom thumbnails
  • Style tool compatible
  • Pricing  and polycount as follows:
    - 1 tile panel; $100, 394 polys
    - 2 tile panel; $200, 708 polys
    - 3 tile panel; $300, 1022 polys
    - left and right corner panel; $104, 394 polys
    - right corner panel; $102, 394 polys
    - left corner panel; $102, 394 polys

I am Not a Hipster! Paintings

Update 04/11/2015 - I have remade these so they are no longer extra shiny and are style tool compatible. The file will replace the original package, but if you have used them ingame, you will need to re-place them. 

We are in desperate need of more artwork. I was so happy when S4S gave us the opportunity to recolour the game meshes. This is one of these sets I made for myself that I am sharing with you all. I love little images grouped together, so I used the kids painting as a base, coming up with these. Credit goes to Society6 for the base image. 

The Build/Buy item feature:
  • basegame compatibility
  • non-default
  • 8 images in both black and white frames
  • All 16 styles found under one item in the catalog
  • custom thumbnails
  • Costs $30

UPDATED - Look At Me! Fireplace and Walls


In this crazy world of choices when it comes to TS4 content, I am giving you so much more! I decided that the fireplaces needed an overhaul (who uses brass these days anyway) and got carried away and came up with these awesome eye catching designs. I love the contemporary look and I hope you do too. I think it is a big improvement over the original and I try to use it as much as I can.

Updated 31 October, 2015: I have added 12 new styles to the fireplace along with fixing a few texture issues. Since this was originally made when S4S couldn't add swatches, the update to the game which allows older content to be used with the style tool was bugged with merged packages, so it will no be fixed. Expect other content to be updated in the near future. 
I have also added matching walls using my Classic Wall Set cornices which has been highly requested by many. Due to the nature of the patterns and source material, they are not all perfect as walls and they do have some obvious repetition that cannot be completely removed, but they look awesome in-game in bathrooms, kitchens and wet-areas. There are no matching floors because this sort of tile would not exist as flooring IRL, so they I didn't make any (and the fact some patterns tile over an area greater then a 256x256px canvas). So I hope you enjoy the update :)

The Build/Buy items feature:
  • basegame compatibility
  • non-default
  • 32 fireplace choices (all white with varying feature tile designs)
  • Custom Thumbnails and swatches
  • Costs $1500
The walls feature:
  • basegame compatibility
  • 32 styles
  • Custom thumbnails
  • Walls found in Tile category of Build Mode
  • costs $4
  • All wall heights available

Pattern My Ombre Tee v2.0


I am in the process of redoing my earlier clothing, fixing a few things, and updating the older CASP files. This is being done since the CASP file format has changed considerably since the game launched last year, and it has led to many fixes along the way. But those new to the game are not aware of such fixes, so this is about polishing up those items. Unfortunately, the original ombre tee, as much as I love it, is very outdated, so it is more about remaking then fixing. It has mapping issues, we couldn't edit speculars then, not to mention the texture was absolutely horrible in some places. I really can bring myself to just fix that one, it needed to be complete remade. So here it is. I decided just to keep 2 of my favourite styles, but expanded the colour choices for each. I love them as much as when I first made them, and hopefully you all will love them too.

The clothing item features:
  • basegame compatibility
  • Non-default
  • 20 colour options
  • available for teen to elder men
  • found by default under the t-shirts filter
  • Disabled for random
  • Custom thumbnails
  • can be found by default in everyday, party, sleep,  and athletic categories (but can be used in other categories by removing the filter in CAS)

Just Roll 'Em Up Tee


I am on a rolled-tee roll! I really do love a good rolled tee, but I like having variations too. So I went about making these, They compliment my They See Me Roll'n Tees perfectly. Bit more casual and not quite as hip you could say. Doesn't bother me, Jeb looks awesome in them. I also love the style of baseball tees. So you know, I am gonna keep making them XD

They See Me Roll'n Tees


I told you that tee mesh from last week is going to get a workout. I really do love a rolled sleeve tee, and I really love baseball tees, so I combined them.

For The Love of Patterns Tee


Although I love plain tees, I love something that is a bit interesting too to mix it up. So I made this tee with a hint of pattern to add some interest. It is a frankenmesh as well since I wanted this tee to have rolled sleeves. I have to say, my favourite is the purple one. You can definitely expect to see this mesh in a few different retextures in the future.

  • basegame compatibility

Keeping It Simple V-neck Tee


I love a good tee, as you have probably seen. I need to have a variety in my game so I make them as needed.
