Caramilla House


This is the end folks, this is the last lot built for my Windenburg Makeover. Its a sad day, but it means that I have a pretty world now, free of blandness that once existed. Hopefully you enjoy this last lot as much as me. Again, a country style with a french and tudor twist. It is also the one I did a speed build too, and now i am happy with the layout, its ready for your games. If you want to see this house being built, you can check out the speed build here.

Riverside Cottage


I really don't like working with small lots. I feel most comfortable building 3-5 bedroom homes on no smaller then 20x30. However, larger lots are just not as common in this game, so I have had to adapt. This is quite a large home for this lot, but it looks at home by the small river. I like to consider the area around a lot to be part of a home, which makes the lot feel much more substantial. Its quite generous inside, even if its at the cost of exterior space. You can rarely have both space outside and inside in this game, but its a trade-off I am willing to make.

The home features:
  • 3 bedrooms

Updates


As you may have seen visiting my blog, I have been in the middle of a massive updating spree for my sets. This was mainly triggered by the lighting update that Maxis released which broke a lot of cc lights, but it was also an opportunity to update some minor issues as well. Graciously Georgian was the last set that needed updating, so you can no find all the updated items in their respective posts.

Remember, if you find an issue, please let me know. I don't catch everything and will try and help you figure out if its my content or an issue on your side. Just remember to be specific, I can't help if I have no information to go on.

Now back to cc making.

Updated: Graciously Georgian Build Set


UPDATE 23/07/2016: I was made aware that the low lod for the French, Wide, and Double doors were displaying the missing texture image due to incorrect linking, that has been fix. It was only a concern if viewing the items from a fair distance away, but nevertheless, needed fixing. You can redownload below, as well as the updated files separately. Thanks to Kanata2288 on twitter for letting me know about the issue.

It is finally finished: my first unique set of build mode items. I tend to more often then not  "go big, or go home" and this set is no exception. This is what I call a full build set, with matching interior and exterior items. The idea was to create a classic Georgian-style set for use in everyday homes, both classic and contemporary. Let me tell you, this was made harder given there is no CASt, but I think I came up with a very usable set. To say I am proud of these objects is an understatement, especially when I thought at one point I would not finish it. But here it is, so you can 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.

Fenrrick House


The home on the hill in the north of Windenburg, this residence is quite large considering its looks. Its amazing what what overhangs can do for the top floor! Anyway, this is again a more country home with some tudor influence with soft colouring to make it a little more casual then the city buildings. Also there is some grassed area for a vegie patch which is always nice. 

The home features:
  • 5 bedrooms
  • 3 bathrooms
  • open plan dining/kitchen

PSA on Object Sets


  1. With all these updates I am doing (some forcibly), I am also slowly adding links to folders on simfileshare where you can download the files from a set individually. You will need to check out the original posts for this link or my blogger for older content I have released. I have only added this to Atwood Living so far, but all sets will have it in the future when i get to it (my net is going to hate me). 
  2. I am re-evaluating whether to offer merged files into the future. It is yet another item i have to upload and quite frankly, merging is easy to do yourself, and the benefit of merging is not always noticeable. So don’t be surprised if i no longer offer the option in the future. If you want to merge your files and you can run a windows program (either on a windows computer or a partitioned Mac), then check out sims 4 studio because it couldn’t be easier. 
  3. I hate updating cc, but if you find an issue, be sure to tell me because there is one thing i hate more then updating cc, and that is updating cc multiple times. 
  4. Did I mention i hate having to update cc?

UPDATED: Bayside Bedroom Set - Shielded Lamps


Update 16/07/2016: I have updated the custom tuning for these lights so the lighting options can be applied per room. Please redownload. 

By popular demand, my decor Bayside shielded candles are now functional lights. This was quite a pain as I had to learn custom tuning, and fix smoothing group issues, but they look great in game. The come in the same 16 candle colours as the Bayside Bedroom Set and do not replace the decor ones. I wanted to have both in my game, so you have the choice too.
There is one small issue that you should be aware of. This happens with EA candles too, so it is the game coding causing it and is not fixable as far as I am aware. When the candles are grouped, 1-2 of the flames will be dimmer as you can see with the smaller one in the image. Its not a big deal, it is just the look of it. So be aware of this.

The Build/Buy items feature:
  • basegame compatibility
  • non-default
  • 16 style choices
  • Style tool compatible
  • custom thumbnails
  • Found in table lamps
  • Find by searching Bayside Bedroom Set
  • Found under the "Subrurban Contempo" style tag in Filters
  • Cost and polycount:
    - Shielded candle 01$120 (polycount: 1198)
    - Shielded candle 02$115 (polycount: 766)
    - Shielded candle 03$110 (polycount: 806)
The archive contains the  package file and style images. Extract the archive and place the package file in your mods folder, then look for them in your game. I hope you enjoy.

Temporary Download for Lighting after July 15 Patch


I have added a download for all lights that threw a script call failed error from the recent patch for those that don't know how to use, or can't use Sims 4 Studio to update their own files. I call these temporary as they have just been run through the batch fix to change out the tuning ID's. The candles haven't been fully updated and are not included. I will need to create a new tuning resource so they can take advantage of the new lighting options, but in the mean time, they still work, but wont be affected by the lighting-by-room functionality. They are only available on simfileshare as individual packages. I will update the merged packages as I get time since that will require quite a bit to get them all fixed due to the size of the merged files and will try to carry out additional updates for those sets at the same time.

Updated Lighting:

15th of July Patch and Broken Lights

The patch today has very obviously broken a lot of custom content lights, including my own. This is because Maxis updated and renamed tuning files after adding the ability to change light colour and intensity by room. The plus side is, not all my lights are broken, as it is limited to table, floor and wall lights that will not place. I am aware of this issue and I need to update my files for it, but that will take time. You can however fix the issue for yourself using Sims 4 Studio which has just recently been updated.

http://sims4studio.com/thread/562/sims-studio-jackpot-open-beta

Follow the instructions to run the batch fix and you should be able to use your files once again. I will still be updating my lighting, as my candles use custom tuning that will need to be updated manually so the new feature is available for those too.

Summerton Manor

I wanted a french country style, that mixed in some Tudor influences to tie it back to the main town, and this is what i can up with. its quite spacious inside and has a bit more laid back style then the more formal Tudors I have released.
