I based this off of the exising "pool pourri" (pool water with petals in) from Get Together, but I have been told by MTS moderators that you can still use this with the Base Game .
The weather turns colder and the snow starts to fall, but the pools and fountains seem to stay warm. There's no ice that forms or snow that settles. I want to add that final touch to my winter garden and let the water cool off a bit.
So this adds a new pool water for you to choose, with a variety of different snowy and icy textures to get the perfect chilly water during winter.
I was always disappointed that my sims could "swim around" freely in the ocean (Island Living) but when it came to pools that option wasn't available, we only had "swim laps" and I didn't really like my mermaid sims swimming around in circles/squares at the edges of the pool. I wished that we had the "swim around" interaction so they could move about freely. I had a look aorund and couldn't find that anyone had done this yet, so I added it to the pie menu myself
This interaction isn't exclusive to mermaid sims
From testing in different pools it seems to work best in mishapen/irregular pools. They do tend to still move around the edges but not as bad as "swim laps", they take a more varied path in a pool that isn't a perfect square.
They will swim further away from the edges than it was originally set to, I've increased the constraint size from 1.5 to 2.5 (any higher doesn't work very well in smaller pools).
As soon as I saw the heater that came with snowy escape, I wanted to take the radiator from Vampires and make it function the same. So that's what this is. The Vampire's radiator now warms up your sims
I also added a few more swatches: light grey, white, and black
I love the shelving that came with the Eco Lifestyle pack with the little plants and things on, and I was thinking, these plants are too pretty to stay stuck on these shelves. I wanted to place them elsewhere around my homes.
This set contains 21 different items
So I cloned all the shelves with items on that I liked and spent time separating them.
*2 of the plants did not have a complete mesh - the back was missing as no one would ever realistically see it on the shelf, so I had to botch a fix for those holes. I'm not very good with Blender, I can only really delete things, not create. So I've copy pasted the existing side of the mesh and joined it to the back, so the shadows might be a bit off on those as it's a botched glued together pot basically
Most of the items do not have any swatch variations. If the original shelf had different swatches that affected the object, I have included all of those. Most of them though only have the one.
The Freed Eco Lifestyle Decor Boxes does have a medium decor slot that you can put things in.
Catalogue Details: You can find all these items in Plants or Clutter. You can also type "freed" or "eco" and find them.
Another item of which we had no appropriate off-the-grid/olde worlde alternative - the dew collectors...
It would be nice if my sims in my old houses with no electricity and no/little plumbing could have something that suits their surrounding.
I've cloned some buckets from existing objects and added the dew collector functionality to them. So it can be placed around your old style house and look normal.
This is not a replacer, it will add 2 new objects
This can be used off-the-grid as far as I know, from checking in my own game, the original dew collectors seem to function with the OTG lot trait active. Catalogue Details: Activities & Skills > Outdoor Activities $50
