A Little Vintage Chair...recolors of Ohbehave's new mesh
mustluvcatz
Small update today. (Then back to the tables!) I would like to have one of these chairs in real life. Since I can't, my sims can- thanks to Ohbehave- and now they can have a few more color choices too. 4 totally random recolors..mesh not included, get it here

Betsy & Anye Recolors
mustluvcatz
Ohhhh..I LOVE Betsy's little pic that was used for Black Pearl Sims recent Just 5 contest. It's so cute and the recolors already done are awesome. Since Betsy textured the sides of the picture to look like canvas stretched over a frames, I did 17 recolors keeping the "canvas stretched over a frame" look. (I hope, lol.) There are 2 paintings not pictured, but you can see them in the swatches. All files are labeled so it should be easy to pitch any you don't want. :)

There's also a .psd I made for the picture. It made it a bit easier to change the color of the canvas sides and the easel back. (Which I kept the same color for all of my recolors for simplicity's sake.) If you would like to use it, and can, it's there.




I also recolored Anye's shabby etagere. It looked kind of lonely sitting there all by it's lonesome with no recolors. There are a few more of her little deco objects that I plan on recoloring soon. There are green apples, yellow apples and another red apple..that's different from Anye's red apple no matter what my kids tried to tell me. :)

Later on, we'll conspire as we dream by the fire..
mustluvcatz
UPDATE: In the pics, you may notice how lit up the chimney side of the fireplace is. Well, this has been fixed.Nothing about the mesh was changed- it still looks and works the same, there's just no bright spot on the chimney now. Yay! If you would like the new mesh- you can download it and let it replace the old one. (Thanks to the awesome Huge Lunatic for fixing that for me!) My apologies to the 200ish (wow!) people who already downloaded.

Tinkle at Black Pearl Sims made a deco fireplace that I rather like the look of. With her permission, I fiddled around with her mesh and made a functional version that I rather like the look of.




If you have her version, you can have mine too. Since I remapped, rearranged, added a subset, added the logs (and all the other fire related stuffs) and added 10 slots and some shelves- I used new GUID's. There are 9 recolors included, including  the recolors made by Kim for the Stocking Stuffers at Black Pearl Sims. (Thanks goes to Kim for sending the textures to me!) The fireplace and the metal frames are recolorable- the glass is not. Recolors absolutely welcome. My version can be found in Appliances>Misc for 499 simoleons.

Sofa Tables 2!
mustluvcatz
More tables. :) These will most likely be the last of them. There are 5 again- BUT- this time only 2 are basegame (the Simple Structure and Chabudai tables). The other three are from Seasons (the Tiki table), Open For Business (the Mission table) and the Ikea stuff pack (the Leksvik table..my favorite!). 4 of the tables have just the 3 slots and the Leksvik table has 9. As with the other set, all tables are slaved to the Maxis originals. I've included a collection file in the rar- all 10 tables will be in it if you have them all.

Sofa Tables!
mustluvcatz
There are some of these out there.. but they're not quite the same. I've taken 5 basegame coffee tables and made tall, narrow tables for behind sofas. They sit pretty close to the back of the sofas (some they're right up against) and all have had slots added. Some only had 1 added due to not having a lower shelf..the ones with a lower shelf had 5 slots added. The footprint was edited so the tables sit in it better. Sims won't walk through the tables and if you put a phone on one, they can still use it. (The animation is a tiny bit wonky.) I might do more of these if anyone wants them. There's an Ikea table that I really, really want to get my MilkShape and SimPe on, lol. These are all slaved to the Maxis originals...yay!

Happy Holidays!!
mustluvcatz


OK, I'll be honest. I really wanted to put "Merry Christmas!!" I should have. I'm 45. That's how I grew up- you'd say Merry Christmas and whoever you said that to would say it back. These days you just don't do that! You might offend someone. Seriously? I've had people tell me Happy Hanukkah (aka Chanuka) and not once was I offended. I've always realized that people have their different faiths and beliefs and have always accepted that. So- Merry Christmas everyone! And please know that I mean no offense.

Holiday Wall Writing..Ho, ho, ho, lol...
mustluvcatz
Just a few recolors of AG's 2-tile wall writing. The mesh is not included- if you don't have it, you can get my modified (no-fade) version in one of my previous downloads..the tree stickers. There are 2 versions of the snowflakes- big and small. :)

It's A Wrap!! Wrapped Up Frames...
mustluvcatz
I was hoping to get a lot of holiday stuffs done, but this working overnight is really killing my creating time, lol. There was a project I was working on and had to give that up for right now. To cheer myself up..well, here's what I did: (These are at MTS, too- but the bow is different, thanks to an awesome mod who redid it for me..go check them out! http://modthesims.info/d/463945)



I used to wrap some of the pictures on my walls for the holiday. It's a look I've always liked, so I recreated it for our simmies. There are 4 meshes- frame 1 is the MASTER; 2, 3, and 4 are the SLAVES. They can be mixed and matched for a lot of different looks. If you have Apartment Life, they can be shifted up and down. Absolutely basegame and recolors (for any holiday/occasion) are more than welcome. Very low poly and cheap- 10 Simoleons..the cost of wrapping paper to wrap them, lol.

It's Not Snowing....Yet...
mustluvcatz
But who says you can't have snowmen now? Well, your simmies can at least, lol. I posted some snowmen that I made last year earlier. Now I'm reposting them and a group of snowmen to match.

Mystic Rain Cushion Recolors
mustluvcatz
Something else that was sitting in my projects folder...part of the cleaning out the folder project. Yeah, I know I'm running behind on getting all that stuff posted. Our training schedule at work was supposed to be a set schedule- I think we've been there ONCE at the scheduled time, lol. So everything is all jumbled up on my end. There's every chance in the world that these colors have been done before, but I couldn't find them. I needed colors to match other things so I made these real quick. (Which explains the slightly odd assortment of colors!) I used Amethystfenix's linen textures in: apple, asparagus, cherry, lemonade, marina, melon, pomegranate, robin's egg, sunrise, thistle.



Your Stairs, Your Way!
mustluvcatz
You know how there are all those recolors for modular stairs with tiles for the risers? I'm jealous of those. Something like that would be nice for regular stairs, right? Well, I looked and didn't see any anywhere..maybe they exist. (If they do, link please!!) Just in case- here's my interpretation of the perfect staircase. For now at least- there is a set without the open area coming up next. In the meantime- if you don't want more stairs, you can use the Stair Wall Fix @ MTS (along with a wall, lol) to get the look of "regular" stairs. I tried it and it works beautifully.

But wait! There's more, lol!! There is also a separate railing. So you can have stairs without a railing or stairs with a railing. Not only that- you can have stairs with a railing on the left, none on the right OR stairs with a railing on the right, none on the left. The railing can be found in Sculptures, can be placed without cheats and will not stop a sim from using the stairs. (No more railing sticking through the wall!!) Each banister is recolorable on it's own- so there are 2 subsets for the railing. I know it's a pain to recolor both parts, but that's the only way each side could be made invisible.

Now- the particulars:
The stairs and railings all come in Maxis wood colors: dark, light, medium, cherry, black and white. There are also 10 random wood and metal-ish recolors. The risers have the Maxis woods and tiles. So there are 15 recolors for all..plus the invisible recolor for the railings. You can put furniture under the stairs using "moveobjects on" - the furniture is usable, too. (Yay!) I think that's it- hope you enjoy! :) And feel free to recolor!

3 Birdhouse Recolors
mustluvcatz
There is a cute birdhouse in Betsy4Art's Betsy's Garden set that I really like. Since I try not to download and keep anything with no recolors, I did a few. If anyone knows of any other recolors, let me (us) know! Files are named by roof color ~ mesh is included.



Jonesi's Bed Blanket Recolors ~ Nautical/Beachy
mustluvcatz
The last of the survivors.. 20 beachy/nautical recolors. Most of these have an edging- which looks kind of silly on some of the meshes. (But I liked the look, so it stayed!)  Links to all the meshes are in my links list!

Jonesi's Bed Blanket Recolors ~ Knits
mustluvcatz
Moar! Again, none of the existing meshes are included. I'll post links to them. This set has 8 plain knits (texture pretty much by me) and 10 striped knits (internet texture edited by me).

Jonesi's Bed Blanket Recolors ~ Stripes
mustluvcatz
It amuses me that I resisted downloading Jonesi's bed blanket for so long..and now have it and all the slaves (double and single) AND about a bazillion recolors. It amuses me even more that all those recolors weren't enough for me. I recolored it once. Then again. And then...well, it's so easy!! The results? 54 recolors (the only ones that survived the great crash). I've split them up according to texture. This is the first part. Stripes! I think these match something else I've done, lol. The original mesh and the slaves are not included. I'll post links to all of them. :)

Get out the hip waders....lol...
mustluvcatz
...there may be a flood coming! On Nov 14th, I go back to work. I've been out of work for the last 4 months because I had to clear up some pretty serious home problems. While everything isn't perfect yet I needed to go back. So I want to take some time before Monday to clear out my projects folder and post everything. That shouldn't be too hard since everything just needs to be screenied and rar'ed. I think it's all pretty much recolors that I wanted and couldn't find anywhere else. The only mesh (I think) is the Cameo curtains that I modified. Since I do tend to procrastinate..we'll see how it goes. :) I really do want to get it all cleared out though. Then everything will be neat and tidy, which will give me more time to work on new things when I can. Updated will be at odd times though. I'm hoping to get the overnight shift after going through training (again!). I loveeee the "graveyard shift". I'm such a night owl, lol!

I do haz a question, but first- a bit of rambling. Even though there have been a few recolors posted here, I'm mostly a mesher these days. The recolors were quick things I did out of boredom OR because of a lot I was trying to get finished and needed certain colors. Never did finish that lot because I kept stopping to make something! So- the question- Anything you'd like to see here? If you know my work, you'll have a pretty good idea of what I can and can't do. So feel free to ask/comment and we'll see what happens. (No promises though!)

Jarred lights... Lights in a jar? Erm..Mason Jar Lights!
mustluvcatz
First thing: These lights are high-poly. The chandeliers are 6610 polys. The ceiling light isn't as bad- 1100 polys. While testing these and the recolors, I had at least 12 lights on a fully built and decorated lot at once. I didn't notice any lag, but I do have a pretty good computer. So, if you've got a lower end computer, be warned and don't plop these in every room!

Gigi at Black Pearl Sims requested a mason jar chandelier. I did one set for her, which you can find here. That set doesn't have a texture for the jars because I wanted "her" set to be shiny! Well, shinier.) I personally liked the texture I came up with, so I made another set:


The shine is still there..but the texture makes them more noticeable lit and unlit.

There are 3 lights - 2 are chandeliers with 12 jars/bulbs. One of those is lower- closer to the table- which is what Gigi wanted. You can put stuffs on a table still, the light will not get in the way. There is also a ceiling light with just 2 jars. There are 6 recolors.. mason jars may not be these colors in real life, but I kinda liked the way they looked, lol. One last thing- clicking on these to chose another color was a pain. I had to zoom really far away (I think the lights being so long had to do with that, if that makes sense)..so none of these fade while zooming. If that's a problem with anyone, I apologize in advance. (Changing that would be easy.. one line in the BHAV would need deleted.)

One last thing: (This is important!) If you happen to have the original set from BPS, this set uses the same GUIDs. So you can't have both in game. The major differences between the 2 sets: This set is repository (MasonJarChandelierTEXTURED is the master) and you can recolor the glass normally. The set at BPS is not repository and to recolor the glass, you have to change the TXMT settings. (The metal is recolorable the normal way.) That set also has NO recolors. So, it's up to you which set you'd like.. hope you enjoy them either way! :)

Shades of White
mustluvcatz
I'm a curtainaholic. One of my goals in life is to convert as many people as I can into curtainaholics. (Plantaholics and rugaholics, too..) Here is one of the curtains I haz, along with 8 sheer recolors in shades of white. I plan on doing some more in blues, greens, pinks, etc. Until then, here's these. Hope you like them. The mesh is included in the download. (Steffor's Couch Potato curtain.)

Flower Power
mustluvcatz
CuriousB  recently converted one of nanu's sets. In that set is a potted flower. I haz it. I recolored it. I like them. Here's hoping you do, too. Five recolors (blue, yellow, orange, pink, purple) are in the download along with the mesh- thank you CuriousB!
