Six TSM Floor Mirrors

Posted by NixNivis on 5 February, 2014

Six TSM Floor Mirrors

Category: Decorative -> Mirrors
EPs Required: None – base game compatible
Cost: Varies
Poly Count: Low poly to High poly!

Remember back when I converted the TSM wall mirrors, and said I’d eventually do the floor mirrors as well? Probably not, but I do. 😉 And I have. So without further ado I bring you six TSM floor mirrors, converted for your TS2 convenience.

Signet Rings for Hat

Posted by NixNivis on 1 February, 2014

Rings for Hat

Seeing the signet rings I made a little while back, that lords wear on the little finger and ladies on the middle finger, Almighty Hat wished for index finger rings, and/or for little finger rings “for ladies who handle their own correspondence.” Hat is somebody I totally fangirl (srsly, she’s solely responsible for about 2/3 if not more of the CC in my medieval game), so of course I had to comply with her wish.

So. Hat (and everybody else) – have some signet rings, v. 2.0. :mrgreen:

Accessory Signet Rings (v. 1.0)

Posted by NixNivis on 18 January, 2014

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, one of my male 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.

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. 🙂

Swords for Morgaine

Posted by NixNivis on 8 November, 2013

Swords for Morgaine

Update 27 July, 2016: In case your Sims don’t like to run around all day with their swords unsheathed (I mean, you can poke somebody’s eye out like that. Or your own), ocelotekatl @ Blue Heaven Sims has made great completer set with scabbards for these! :mrgreen:


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. 😀

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

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.

Knightly Posebox with Accessory Swords

Posted by NixNivis on 30 October, 2013

A Knightly Posebox with Accessory Swords

Category: Hobbies -> Misc.
Cost: $0
EPs Required: None – base-game compatible
Works For: Both genders, teen to elder

Sometimes, I go a little overboard. For this medievalish story I’m writing (that isn’t live yet), I needed a particular kneeling pose. One pose. And then I thought that it would be great if the Sim was holding a sword and oh, TSM has some nice ones… and then it rapidly went downhill from there. 🙄

The result is this: a posebox with seven kneeling and three standing poses for you to mix and match. (Yes, I know there are similar poseboxes out there already, but I wanted my own.) To add some knightly flavour, all of the standing poses as well as one of the kneeling ones have accessory swords to go with them, that will be spawned automatically when you run the poses. That’s right, your Sims won’t have to put them on or take them off using a mirror: the posebox will take care of it for them. A knightly posebox should be chivalrous, after all. 😉

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! 😀

Default Replacement Thinking Helm

Posted by NixNivis on 16 February, 2013

Thinking cap? Nay, helm!

This is all George R. R. Martin’s fault. 😛 I’m currently re-reading A Song of Ice and Fire, and suddenly I realised I had to do something about the thinking caps in my Westeros ‘hood (that resides in an AnyGame that otherwise has been default replaced within an inch of its life). I mean, a lightbulb, really? A lightbulb?? Gods be good!

So I made some lightbulb-free default replacements.
