IKEA Arkelstorp tables by CSF (cmo,shasta,fish)

Thanks to fanseelamb for the great upload pictures

Download at leefish

Such a fantastic little table set! And for those wondering - your sim needs high body skills and 9-10 active points to do yoga on coffee tables.


Plz forgive the super shoddy screenshot and everything but… I was testing something and THIS happened when I sent Nora to do yoga on the glass table. I have never in my 10 years of playing sims seen or heard of such an informative popup message. WHAT IS THIS MAGIC.

Steve Newlin now available for download.

Install with Clean Installer (PC) or WooHoo Installer (Mac) to avoid “missing expansion pack” error messages.

Strongly Recommended:

  • Put “light” non-default Maxis skin on this sim if you have default-replacement skin installed.  This sim uses Maxis skin and looks wrong without it.
  • If you choose to make this sim a vampire with the Nightlife expansion, then:
  • Use this fangs fix mod to fix Nightlife’s ridiculously broken fangs. Delete the “Accessory.cache” file from your “Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2” folder first to fix broken fangs on vamps already in your game.  
  • Use this “normal looking vampire skin" (vampireNoBlueNoRedEye version) to give your vampires normal looking skin and eyes. 
  • The Nightlife expansion is needed for Steves’s outfit.  Change his clothes if you don’t have Nightlife.    

Included Content: blush by Figs; sideburns by Fumiko; some stuff by me [hair + mesh (578 polys), clothes, eyes, eye bags, red-rimmed eyes eyeliner, brows]

Big thanks to the custom content creators mentioned above, and to the actors, writers, and entire crew that makes True Blood.  Particularly Michael McMillian who portrays Steve so well. 

Please do not redistribute my sims or altered versions of them.


Alternative Red Beverage now available for DOWNLOAD.

Proprietors of local hotspot “Fangtasia” sourced this delicacy on their recent tropical vacation. The red bottle contains an…. alternative…. beverage for those with discerning tastebuds. 

Please Note: This is a DEFAULT-REPLACEMENT beverage. It replaces the big water bottle sims use when juggling bottles from the fridge, making “poured” bar drinks, and drinking from the bar bottle. It also replaces the questionable blue liquid in “poured” bar drinks with this red one (it looks exactly the same as the red “blended” drink). Nectar bar drinks are not affected.


WCIF Bottom-Only Tights for Women?

I know I saw some just the other day but stupidly didn’t download and now I want them and can’t find them……

Anyone know where I can find some bottom-only tights for women? Just tights, no skirt or anything. The ones I remember seeing were meant to be worn with “dress tops” so they were basically like undies with shoes. Anyone?

ETA: Found at chalkmetal’s LJ. Thank you @esotheria-sims! ♥

Something that bugged me for ages - the Apartment life playground equipment lot view and hood view colours did not match - the hood view defaulted to the blue and red. Now fixed - hood and lot view match.

This always bugged me too. And now it’s fixed. YAY. Thank you, Lee.

WCIF Baggy Women’s NL PJs as a Separate Top

Anyone know where I can find this NL PJ mesh made into a separate top that can be paired with any pants? I tried Slar’s version from MTS but that one was made even baggier than the original and the UVmap was changed. I want one with the same shape and UVmap as the original so I can easily transfer my existing recolours onto it.

I could just make it myself but would rather not duplicate an existing mesh if one’s already out there. And there must be one out there right? Seems like a pretty basic thing that someone would have already made………

Anyone know?

ETA: Hmm guess not. Okay I made one myself.


Merlotte’s Windows

Oops. I forgot to include the window recolours with Merlotte’s. They were sitting in my SavedSims folder so I didn’t notice they were missing when I tested with a clean Downloads folder. Ack.

Here they are now: BV Window Recolours for Merlotte’s Bar & Grill

Just pop ‘em in your downloads folder and they’ll appear on the lot if you haven’t yet resaved it in your game.

Merlotte’s Bar & Grill now available for DOWNLOAD.

You must have ALL EXPANSION PACKS including Mansion & Garden Stuff to use this lot. Otherwise it may crash your game.

THINGS YOU ALSO NEED for this lot to display properly:

  • curtain fix (last post in thread) by Goggalor and Leesester
  • SEP and CEP by Numenor
  • All Sims 2 Stuff Packs

WARNING: Please backup your game before installing. I believe this community lot is safe to use, but it was previously owned which may cause issues. The StayThingsShrub and its fix were used to keep it furnished upon selling the business, and Clean Installer was used to remove unneeded custom content. 

Price: §56,248;  Lot Size: 3x3

Included Content: Merlotte’s sign from sunni’s much for accurate rendition of this place; exterior walls and recycling bin by me; bv dining table recolour by anna

DisclaimerThis place was inspired by “True Blood” but is not an exact replica of the one on the show. I prefer to use minimal custom content and layouts that suit my gameplay style rather than copying a place exactly. 

Big Thanks: to everyone who made the tools and custom content mentioned above, especially Sunni who let me use content from her much more accurate rendition of this place. And of course to “True Blood” for the inspiration.

Please let me know if anything doesn’t work or if I’ve left something out.

Note: Personal photos seen in the office turned blank but stayed on the walls when the business was sold. I left them up as placeholders - you’ll want to either replace them with your own photos/paintings or remove them. The grave out back also disappeared so you’ll just have to kill a customer yourself if you want one there. Protip: Burning leaves is how Eric managed to accidentally set the original customer on fire. Also, the “I Want to Believe” poster was moved after these pics were taken. It’s now in the office behind the door.

Where did I get these white door and window recolours?

I love them and there’s no creator name on the files for me to recommend them to the friend who asked where I got them. Help!  

Clue #1: Filenames start with “Euro”.

Clue #2: They were in a “Leftovers” folder.

The pics above are the original ones from that “leftovers” folder.

Anyone recognize them?

ETA: They’re not the ones from Aurelia at MTS, but thanks for the suggestion, zoragraves!

ETA 2: Okay they’re definitely Amaryll, her name is inside the file where Lunie suggested I look……. but I still can’t find the actual download post….

ETA 3: FOUND! Thank you all for the suggestions, especially Lunie and shastakiss who had the winning guesses. :D

Flatten Neighborhood Terrain - Mini Tutorial

hugelunatic:

Mini.  Very mini.  Like three pictures.  Because I needed to flatten terrains to place lots that are flat.  

See how the road is not flat when trying to place a lot?

image

To make the dippy corner flat, open the cheat panel and type in "modifyneighborhoodterrain on".

image

Use your mouse to left click, hold, then drag to include the area you want to flatten.  Start by placing the mouse in the area that is the height you want.

image

Once you have selected the area you want to adjust, then:

  • [ - raises terrain
  • ] - lowers terrain
  • P - levels terrain
  • \ - flattens terrain

Want to make flat beach lots?  Then check out this tutorial by vimpse

My mind is blown. Thanks for sharing this info!
