Okay, now that I know everyone is on the same page with this set:
As I was working on the Keep
I began to wonder how the larger population, the peasants,serfs, etc. would live.
So I looked at all the objects maxis had made, and the objects and recolors I had downloaded. Much of it is too, nice or too smooth, etc. for the hardscrabble
existence Eurpoean peasants would have had. . . so I made some.
These are recolors of maxis objects, recolored by me using Wizards of SimPE
and Sims2 Homecarfters.
I wanted wood that looked kind of abused, worn, cracked, weathered and rough hewn.
So I came up with three types of wood that is used in every piece of furniture:
hovel walls zip file
- old & abused
- bleached & weathered
- cracked & weathered
2 exterior walls
1 interior wall (lighter)
hovel tables zip file
mesh: "La Table" Square dining table
mesh: talking table -- (why didn't I use "La Table" long dining table? Good question. . . um . . . uh . . . because . . . well, it just dawned on me now.
mesh: modest medieval end table
also include are 4 toy boxes. One toy box isn't really a toy box, as Edward is demonstrating, it's storage container for lentils with a prize inside. Edward found it! Good job Edward! mesh: Rip Co. Toy Bin
hovel bed and chairs zip file
bed frames only
mesh: craftmeister's pine bed
mesh: cheap eazzzzzzee Morissey double bed
mesh: mysteriously medieval dining chair
mesh: mediocre medieval love seat
hovel stuff zip file
mesh: red vs blue portrait
mesh: reflective glass mirror
2 hovel mirrors
mesh: Sung-Gyu Sunburst Oriental Rug
old, worn, faded Turkish rug (Lady of the Keep must have been throwing it out)
mesh: Cornerstone Victoriana Velvet Drapes
brown burlap drapes, used to partition rooms for privacy.
mesh: feckless accessories for the kitchen
cast iron pans
mesh: mmm mini fridge
2 wood pantries, with wood shelf
mesh: fusty hors d'oeuvres gym lockers
Don't forget to say "thank you" to Sims2 creators and recolorers (is that a word?)
Thanks, for all your posts and thanks. I often don't have time to respond, but they make my day and warm my heart.
