Rustic Planks - Rough-cut Timber Flooring in Two Sizes

I really loved the flooring from Jungle adventure, but again like most things, i found the colour selection lacking. So like past flooring, i have tweaked and recoloured in a range of colours to suit more situations. I have also done the flooring in two sizes: the original larger scale, and a 50% size. I think I am going to get a lot of use out of these for more rustic builds.

Small & Rustic Wooden Planks - Scaled Jungle Adventure Flooring

I really love the flooring from Jungle Adventure (a little secret, i love any good wood flooring) but I also don't think the scale will work all the time. So I experimented with a smaller version by changing some parameters within the material definitions and came up with this half-sized version. I am happy to have the option for it and decided to share. I am also recolouring the flooring which will be released in the future, but in the mean time this is a great addition to the original.

Brindleton Bay Grassland Overhaul - Default Replacement Grass

I really liked the texture chosen for the grass in Brindleton Bay. There was one issue though; it was overscaled and the green tone looked horrible. I generally don't replace the grass textures in my game but I decided to make an exception here. I scaled the texture by half and brightened the green a bit to look a little more lush. The downside is the pattern repetition is a bit more obvious, but I am ok with that payoff. I was reminded I actually made this on tumblr, so i have double-checked everything is right and it is here for those that are interested.

Alum Archaeology Site - A Jungle Adventure Location

Lets be honest, the museum in Selvadorada was horrible, Such a huge lot, such lost potential. So I went about making it more interesting. I went for an ancient ruins look that doubles as a destination for your sims to experience real archaeology before heading out to find their own treasures. I kinda find this lot a bit pointless in the scheme of things, but it is at least pretty and pointless now.

Bradford Seating - Rolled-Arm Style Sofas

I find making seating incredibly relaxing. There are just so many styles out there that I will never be bored or lack inspiration. These came about as I was thinking about an old sofa my parents had which was replaced recently with a newer, more modern design. I liked the design overall (hated the fabric) and find the design is a lot more 'homely' then some designs and wanted to get it a go to see if I could make something similar. This is the end result and I find it works incredibly well with my Hamptons set.

Bowling Night Expanded - Stuff Pack Addons

I love MCM-style furniture, and the more eclectic styles of the 60's to 80's. That is what the Bowling SP offers, but much like the other Stuff Packs, they always leave you wanting more. Well I decided to tackle this pack next after what I accomplished what I did with Vintage Glamour. I am actually surprised I managed to get 26 items out of the meshes which were definitely not as versatile as some Maxis objects. Now you can complete more rooms with the same style and go retro until your heart is content.

Rolled Rebel - Tucked-in Tee for Guys

This was a new idea I ad when remaking some of my older clothing. I do like tucked in t-shirts and i love the look of rolled sleeves, so i combined the ideas and turned them into this. It was a pain to get the normalmap right so it didn't overlay bottom items, but once I figured that out all went smooth from there. I really love this top with a nice pair of jeans, definitely gives off a Rebel Without a Cause vibe for sure.

Kinsey Sofa Series - MCM Inspired Seating

I felt like doing another mesh edit/remake of the Bowling night sofa and got carried away so much it didn't end up looking anything like the original. I decided to make it into its own set with a matching loveseat and armchairs which is perfect for those MCM-inspired interiors instead. I really do love a simple tufted sofa in bright colours. It really becomes a focal point of a room and makes it much more lively. Now I have something reminiscent of my favourite sofa from TS3 too, the Bantum set by Awesims. Hopefully you enjoy as much as I am when decorating with these.

Welcome to Davenporte - Willow Creek Makeover Part 01

With Austere build set released, i can finally start sharing some of the homes I am making for my Willow Creek Makeover which I have called Davenporte. Starting with one of the larger 'hoods I have fully furnished these family homes of varying sizes to fit almost all family needs. However, don't expect any starters from me, they are not a strong point of mine. What you can expect is well built and designed homes for your average family to live comfortably in. That is what I enjoy building, and that is what goes into my worlds.
There is 5 homes in total 3-4 bedrooms. They do use a little amount of cc limited to build mode items by me to help give a bit more variety to the facades of the homes. If you haven't picked up the community lots yet, be sure to do that here.

Laze About - Sweatshorts for Guys

This was a new idea I had after redoing my standard sweatpants. I wear these around the house all thew time and they are just so comfy. So why not make them for my sims? So I did just that. They come in my standard sweatpants colours and are just perfect for loungewear.
