Modern Collection #3

Here is a new part of Modern Collection series. Once again in black, red and white:

Bed is semi-functional - usable, but not animated and sleeping Sims aren't visible. Not rug-based this time, because it was made ages ago - before I learned how to make rug-based beds (actually it is my very first finished bed). This is not a direct conversion of well known TS2 bed - I was able to find very similar free 3D-model and slightly edited it to resemble original as much as possible. A TS1 base is by Linda Celis @ Natural Elements, used with her permission. A thingy, which looks as electronic alarm clock, is a radio, it goes everywhere from floor to shelves and have all radio-stations included. Ceiling lamp is based on SSoW's Anywhere lamp, so it doesn't need floor support. An elephant is not just deco - it's a table. It is slightly oversized and bleeds a bit on some rotations.
Floor, used on a preview pic is by Nyx, wall - from my previous update.

Mixed bag of walls

Here's some matching walls to items from previous post:

A cool breeze from North

Add to your dictionary a new term – nordic chic! Also it is often called scandi boho and even though it isn't actually so new – still very trendy. It uses a lot of fair woods and raw natural materials, muted tones, graphical prints, industrial fixtures, mid-century design icons and ethnic finds from all over the world. Throw here a couple of vintage furniture pieces along with some IKEA accents from their latest catalog and that will be it! Simple, clean, somewhat minimalistic, highly functional, clever and slightly ironic. The best background for nordic style rooms are pure white or grey painted walls and light wood floors everywhere except the bathroom, though raw concrete also goes well with it.

A framed star actually is a lamp. Take a look in game, how nice it glows in the dark! I've mistakenly labeled it as a floor lamp, but it can be placed on surfaces as well. Faux fireplace is... a table, lol! You can place up to 4 items on it. Light bulb, as it's based on SSoW's Anywhere lamp, doesn't need floor support. Chair is a normal chair and table is a table (dining, desk, sideboard, whatever). Other items are purely decorative.

I'm in love with this style and will bore you endlessly. You've been warned! ;)

Double shot

I was planning to hold an Advent Calendar this year, but RL got in the way - my daughter and me were sick for almost whole last month. But here is at least something and probably will be more before New Year (no promises though):

Color splash

Let's add some color into your Sims' homes with new finds from flea market ;)
The dresser is a new base, made from Turbo's 1-tiled dresser. Now it's 2-tiled and have slots for decorating (5 for each tile). TV is functional, though, as most of my TVs, it have only 4 basic channels. Candles are deco-only.

Keep calm and call Sherlock

A special edition of Brit Madness, dedicated to one of the best ever TV-series - "Sherlock" (BBC). Here you have some significant items from sitting room on Baker Street 221b. Will be continued someday...

The fireplace is... a normal working fireplace, though the fire isn't animated. And you can place up to 4 objects on its mantle.

Attention! I'm pretty aware of the fact, that these objects are _not_ an exact replicas of what can be seen in the show. So any comments on this matter will be not very welcomed. I did my best to recreate them for The Sims as close as my abilities allow and it took me 2,5 years to complete.

I would be happy to give a proper credits to the author (or authors) of fireplace and skull 3D-models, but as I've started this set so long ago, now I can't find any heads and tails. So if you know, who's made them or they're yours - please, let me know.

Apogee of flexibility

First of all I need to apologize for such a delay with Togo seatings recolors, guys. I'm still working on them, but so far I made only three of supposed nine sets in a whole. And my newest project, which I presenting today, interrupted the recoloring process for a while. I'll be back to it as soon as possible.

And now... Ta-da! Olena's Clutter Factory proudly presents the Magic Cubes of Flexibility! LOL!

These are conversions of famous Sims 2 cubes by KarasKaras and thanks to generous policy of original author, now are made for Sims 1. Also my heartfelt thanks to Yamirose @ Mirrored Sims, whose recently created stackable file cabinets greatly inspired me and become a base for initial object of this set. Hers are based on Aponee's Cube set, which is in turn based on Turbo's endlessly stackable end tables.

I added two more colors to original five (white is especially for you, Mike! LOL!) and also some more functionality  and flexibility. Please, carefully read below!

Looks not very impressive, yes? You would think - yet another set of plain stackables... Surprise! 
Inside the downloaded archive you will find 35 object files. What exactly are they?

1) Files named "shelf" and "drawer" are endlessly stackable end tables, slightly edited. Each shelf have two slots for object placement - top and bottom. You can move objects between these slots with "/" key. Unfortunately not all objects can be placed on a bottom slot - some are just not fit by size and will bleed through, some are not allowed to be placed on this height. Most Maxis lamps, small plants, little deco pieces such as souvenirs, candles and awards will work. Also a lot of my objects - books, iPods, clutter will work as well. Drawers are 1 slot only - on their top, which is logical, I think. Both are not constantly buyable, like original was. You have to place each one separately or press "Shift", while object is selected, to build high stacks. 

They will look great as dividers in lofty rooms, but do not stack more than 3 near the wall - it will not look good. They can be placed over each other in any order and still have full functionality of the surface. Turbo's invisible tables will make them look like hanging on the wall.

All other items of the set look like the drawers, but have different functionality.

2) Files named "bookcase" - besides being a normal bookcase, they can be placed almost anywhere - on the floor, on shelves and drawers, on endtables and on each other as well. And most important - they can hold other pieces of the set and any object you place on them. Though Sims themselves can't place anything on them. But if you place, for example, a boombox on top of bookcase they still can use both. 

3) Files named "dresser" - they're dressers and surfaces at the same time. All said above about bookcases, applies to dressers as well. Except, that the Sims can place stuff on them - but be careful - some things, bills for example, may disappear.

4) Files named "toybox" - they are toyboxes/surfaces. Technically they're still 2-tile objects, so you can't place them anywhere besides the floor. But good news - you can place everything on their top. Sims will not use them as surfaces voluntarily.

And finally! -
If you'll have any further questions or problems - don't hesitate to let me know here or Sims 1 forums.

Iconic seatings

Designed about 30 years ago by Michel Ducaroy famous Togo collection now available also in Sims 1. Some items were already simmified by Savage Sims and also my friend Martha presented me a wonderful loveseat, but now here is almost full collection (except sofa with arms) in one of the classic color options:

I would like to ask creators to refrain from recoloring it for a while – I'm planning to make few more colors. And as soon as they'll be released, please, feel free to recolor then. Thank you!

And no - Sims actually can't watch the TV, while sitting in the lounge... But it's usable anyway! :-D
