Accessory Signet Rings (v. 1.0)

Signet Rings

You can find v. 2.0 of these rings here.

This is one of those “I don’t know if anybody else will want this, but I’ll upload it anyway” things.

In this medievalish story I’m writing (that’s going to go live really soon), one of my characters takes off his signet ring and gives it to a certain lady character (in lieu of another kind of ring ;) ). I was in the middle of taking screenshots when I realised that none of the rings I already had in my game looked anything like I wanted – so I made some that did look like I wanted.

The Big Bulb Ceiling Lamp

The Big Bulb

Category: Lighting -> Ceiling Lamps
Cost: $75
Poly Count: Low poly
EPs Required: None – base game compatible

New year, new theme – and of course a new upload. :D

This ceiling lamp is based on a real one – namely, the one in my kitchen. I call it the Big Bulb because… well, because it looks like a big bulb. A really big bulb.

Two TSM Fireplaces as Functional Cooking Stoves

What's Cooking?

We won’t be getting a white Christmas in this part of the country (but since we had a veritable Fimbulwinter last year, I for one am perfectly fine with that), but that doesn’t mean the weather outside isn’t frightful in my game. Winter is coming and the night is dark and full of turnips; my medievalish Sims obviously need something to help keep them warm, and maybe something to nibble on as well.

So, I took two of the straight fireplaces from TSM – the Phireplace Pharmadasi and the Jacoban Fireplace – and converted them into functional cooking stoves. You need to have at least one EP installed for them to work, but it doesn’t matter which one, it can be anything between UNI and AL.

Animated Christmas Tree Lamp

Christmas Tree Lamp

Category: Lighting -> Table Lamps
Cost: $50
Poly Count: Low poly
EPs Required: None – base game compatible

Well, ’tis the season and so I wanted to make something nice and Christmas-y for my Sims (since they have all been nice this year). To me, nothing says “Christmas” like a Christmas tree – so I made them one. Sort of. I made a Christmas tree lamp. :D

To add some extra holiday cheer, when it’s turned on this little table lamp spins slowly clockwise and its lights blink discreetly. And yes, of course they are plumbbob lights! ;)

TSM Armoured Training Dummy

Armoured Training Dummy

Category: Hobbies -> Exercise
Cost: $350
Poly Count: Medium poly
EPs Required: Nightlife or above

So after I made my invisible duel dummy, I thought that it would be nice to have a visible training dummy as well, to give my medievalish Westeros Sims some body skill building options – and as usual TSM had just what I was looking for. Now, I know that the TSM training dummies have already been converted over at the Plumb Bob Keep, but just as with the invisible dummy I wanted my Sims to use swords and not cutlasses, and there were some other things I wanted to tweak to my liking as well. So once again I cloned the amazing Rebecah’s duel dummy to make my own. :)

Swords for Morgaine

Swords for Morgaine

When she saw my posebox with accessory swords, Morgaine – the brilliant author of The Chronicles of Albion – wondered if it would be possible to turn the swords into the kind of accessories your Sims put on in a mirror, so you could use them with other poseboxes and animation boxes as well. Since Albion is one of my favouritest (that is too a word!) Sim stories ever, of course I accepted the challenge. :D

The swords have all been extracted from TSM, so much as I’d like to I can’t take any credit for the meshes or textures.

Invisible Duel Dummy with Custom Swords

Invisible Duel Dummy

Category: Hobbies -> Exercise
Cost: $5
Poly Count: Low poly
EPs Required: Nightlife or above

While we’re on the subject of knights. ;)

Over at Affinity Sims, the brilliant Rebecah has extracted the BV duel dummy so Sims can use it to gain body skill and sports enthusiasm. :D This is absolutely great, of course, but for my own storytelling purposes, there were two things about it I wanted done a little differently: I wanted it to be invisible so I wouldn’t have to keep moveObjects’ing it out of the way for screenshots (I know, I’m lazy), and I wanted the Sims to use swords instead of cutlasses. More knightly that way. Thanks to Rebecah’s generous policy, I could clone her dummy and tweak it.
