Two TSM Fireplaces as Functional Cooking Stoves

Posted by NixNivis on 23 December, 2013

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.

TSM Armoured Training Dummy

Posted by NixNivis on 1 December, 2013

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 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. 🙂

Invisible Duel Dummy with Custom Swords

Posted by NixNivis on 31 October, 2013

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. 😀 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.

Nine TSM Wall Mirrors

Posted by NixNivis on 22 October, 2013

Nine TSM Wall Mirrors

Category: Decorative -> Mirrors
EPs Required: None – base game compatible (but can be shifted if you have Apartment Life)
Cost : Varies
Poly Count: Low poly (none over 600 polys)

Maybe it’s because I haven’t been downloading from the right places, but if there’s something I don’t have nearly enough of in my medievalish Westeros ‘hood, it’s mirrors, especially wall mirrors. Thankfully, there is no lack of such in The Sims Medieval you can convert, only I couldn’t choose which ones I wanted in my game… so I converted the lot of them. 😀

So, I give you the nine TSM wall mirrors (yes, nine; one isn’t in the title picture), seven of them with frames in Pooklet’s naturals. Picture heavy post ahead!

TSM Braziers – with Effects!

Posted by NixNivis on 11 October, 2013

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:

The Brazen Brazier

Posted by NixNivis on 12 May, 2013

The Brazen Brazier

Category: Lighting -> Misc.
Cost: $250
Poly Count: High poly! (2,200+)
EPs Required: None – base game compatible

It’s not easy, being a Sim in Westeros: As if it weren’t enough that winter is coming, the night is dark and full of terrors to boot. To get through, your poor Sims obviously need something that can both keep them warm and keep away those white-faced, blue-eyed things that don’t just go bump in the night. You know, like a good brazier.

The Deceptively Modest Painting (i.e. Wall TV) + DR Remotes

Posted by NixNivis on 6 April, 2013

The Deceptively Modest Painting

Category: Electronics -> TVs & Computers
Cost: $35
Poly Count: Low poly
EPs Required: None – base game compatible (but can be shifted if you have AL and also moved with the M&G quartertile cheat)

I admit it: My medieval-ish Westeros ‘hood isn’t quite as medieval as it could be. My Sims have lots of cleverly disguised but no less horribly anachronistic appliances, such as phones, stereos, computers – and TVs.

Personally, I prefer wall TVs for my Sims (even though I know there are different kinds of table TVs out there as well). Now, I’ve seen some two-tile wall TVs disguised as big, ornate paintings, and they’re great – for lords, ladies and knights anointed. But what about the smallfolk? The peasants and the common labourers, who don’t have all the gold of Casterly Rock at their disposal – what are they supposed to watch?

Why, this little one-tile wall TV disguised as a painting, of course! 😀
