Hamptons Hideaway - Living Room Set for TS4





With all the building I have been doing in Windenburg, it has shown me just how much I needed to create some more classic-contemporary furniture that could be used in these coastal homes. I love Hamptons design, so I went about creating my own set of furniture and decor inspired by this style. The last classic/contemporary set I made was my Shaker kitchen which this is designed to be used with, along with my Bayside Bedroom. I do plan to make more furniture with less of a modernist feel, and this is the latest set with that goal in mind. I hope you all enjoy it as much as me.

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

What you need to know:
  • The leaning mirror has a large slot and can be placed on the fireplace. There is a trick to it though; turn on MoveObjects cheat and place mirror on slot. Then pickit back up (but don't move away from the slot) and at this point it will snap to the wall then place down again
  • To place the pillows, hold down alt while placing and rotating with your mouse for finer rotation and position placement
  • The bookcase is functional so your sims can grab books from it as well as place decor on it. To use all slots turn on MoveObjects
  • The coffee table also has small slots on the lower shelf
  • Both the treacle console and credenza have TV slots
Updates:
  • 11/12/2017: Updated for C+D including comfort and candle fixes 
  • 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, updated bookcase for toddlers, fixed leaning mirror so it doesn't get script errors, and turned the occasional bench into a love seat so sims can't sit through the sides.
  • 21/07/2016: Set updated for July Lighting patch.

  11. Hi! Absolutely love your creations, use majority of them in game, but unfortunately Hamptons set, Lennox dining and Looker windows+entry frames do not show up in my game. Any ideas what the reason might be? Re-downloaded, re-installed, removed all other cc and these sets still do not show up. With lots, it is possible to check the box of "show custom content" or whatever it was, but I have no idea, if similar checkbox is for build and buy objects (except the one under options, which I have already checked. So sad... :(

    1. if you have ticked the box in the options menu to enable cc, that is all you should do. Ensure your game is fully up-to-date too. Also perhaps check your mod folder setup is correct, there is a link up the top with help links for that. Unfortunately, I can only give the general help tips asa lot of times, these individual reasons for cc not showing up is system specific and hard to pin point.

    2. Thanks for your reply! After posting my question I discovered that a couple of other recently downloaded items did not show up either. Browsed the forums and searched for possible reason and came to the conclusion that the most likely reason is not having the last game pack and update yet - sorry, my mistake. :) I will update my game sometime soon and hope to see and use your truly amazing sets in game. Once again - thank you for creating such beautiful, clear and original items! All the best!

    3. Not a problem, updating is one of the main reasons items do not work. Hopefully once you update you have no issues :)

    4. It took a while (summer vacation and all that ...) but I just wanted to confirm that all items that did not show up earlier work just fine after updating. :) So very happy... :D Thanks again for sharing Your creations and support!

    1. sims 4 studio has just updated which includes a batch fix to update lighting. I still need to update my files though, but using the s4s batch fix would work much quicker

  14. I love your creations, but since the new update or from the expansion dogs and cats there are two conflicting files that make the sims can't do some things, like eating, these are the names of the two files that fail: PC-TS4-HamptonsHideaway-Merged and also PC-TS4-MCA-Merged, I hope you can fix them because I'd love to have them in the game, I hope you can fix them because I'd love to have them in the game.

    1. That would be bedding and sofas in those merged files. Head to the s4s forums for a new version of the program to run a batch fix to update those filesin the mean time while I update the originals.

  17. Hello, Peace: I have most of your sets and love your work. As an FYI, I am in the process of testing some of your items at the moment and ran across a last exception attribute error with the three Verre candlesticks in the Hamptons Hideway Collection, which I believe is related to a sim viewing them. Thanks for sharing your talents!

  18. Thank you so much for making that fix to the candles so quickly! Your Hamptons sets consist of my favorite items in the game that I use in nearly every one of my builds! They are so classic and elegant, while also being fresh and contemporary.

    1. The candles haven't been updated yet (they are really just broken for pets investigating them) so be sure to keep eye on the update in the near future.
