Mood-Boosting Scented Candles

Mood-boosting Scented Candles

Category: Lighting -> Table Lamps
Cost: $15 (in glass), $25 (in pot)
Poly Count: Low poly (glass 668, pot 380)
EPs Required: Open for Business


Update, 15 Jan 2017: I’m an idiot. I mindlessly copied and pasted the upload info from another light, and completely forgot to change the EP requirement. 😡 These are not base-game compatible, OFB is required. Very sorry about that!


Well, she said, I’m back. 🙂 I hope 2017 has been treating you well thus far; I know 2016 was a rough year for far too many of us. Here’s to hoping this will be better one for all – the only way is up, amirite?

So let’s start the simming year off with an upload that’s bound to lift your spirits – if you’re a Sim, at least. 😉 My first upload of 2017 is two kinds of scented candles, inspired by IKEA’s BRÄCKA and SPRALLA candles. And for Sims, they’re scented for real. :mrgreen:

Two Invisible Floor Lamps

Two Invisible Floor Lamps

Category: Lighting -> Floor Lamps
Cost: $5
Poly Count: Low poly
EPs Required: None – base game compatible

I know, there are invisible lamps out there already (some of them made by me). There are ceiling lamps and wall lamps, and that’s great… but sometimes, you get the best lighting for your picture from a floor lamp. Problem is, when you’re setting up your photo shoot and finally have your Sims where you want them and the light where you want it and the camera where you want it, very often that floor lamp will be in your face (or at least taking up a significant part of the screen).

I don’t know about you, but I don’t like lamps in my face. 😛 So, I’ve made two invisible floor lamps to help with this.

Pear Lamp

Pear Lamp

Category: Lighting -> Ceiling Lamps
Cost: $85
Poly Count: Medium poly (1010)
EPs Required: None – base game compatible

Technically, I’m still on hiatus (even though the end is in sight), but you know how it is. Sometimes you just wanna make a lamp.

I saw a lamp similar to this on a TV show I’m watching, and thought it looked like something my Sims would want. I call it the Pear Lamp, because… well, it’s shaped like a pear. (I know, I come up with some really imaginative names. 😛 ) You get it in the LACK colours, and also in two of my other favourite palettes: Poppet’s Lonesome and Shastakiss’ Yeti palette.

The Big Bulb Ceiling Lamp

The Big Bulb

Cost: $75
Poly Count: Low poly
EPs Required: None – base game compatible

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

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. 😀

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 Braziers – with Effects!

Five TSM Braziers with Effects

Category: Lighting -> Floor Lamps
EPs Required: None – base game compatible
Cost : Varies
Poly Count: Low poly to Medium poly

Well, she said, I’m back, and I come bearing conversions. Yes, it is quite possible these have been done before, but I wanted them for my own game and was too lazy to scour the Internet for them, so.

Thus I bring you five of the braziers from The Sims Medieval (plus one bonus crystal ball because I like to play with envcubes), all fired up and ready to go – and I do mean fired up. They all have fire effects. :mrgreen:
