TS4: Sweet Tea Porch Set

Post by Chicklet45368 on Thu Jun 08, 2017 4:16 am

Hi Everyone!
I'm back with another SIMspiration set! This time I was inspired by this beautiful rustic sign and reclaimed window. I thought it would be super cute on a nice big porch! I am always looking for porch decor ideas because I have a very large porch in RL. But unfortunately I have windows on both sides of my door and no place to hang something like this, so I have to contend myself with my sims having it instead! LOL

First let me tell you that this set is not perfect. Sorry! Although it looks good, there are a couple minor issues that I can't seem to fix.

Swing - (only functions as a loveseat, it is not animated), you need to click on the actual swing instead of the cushion for your sims to use it. And, if they have a big booty they will sink into the cushions. You will need to use bb.moveobjects cheat to place the cushions.

Chair - For some odd reason your sims can not sit in it if the cushion is on it. I am clueless as to why or how to fix it since I cloned the exact same object for both cushions. Your sims can sit on it just fine by itself without the cushion tho. You will need to use bb.moveobjects cheat to place the cushions.

Planter Box - This is a mesh by EA that originally hung on the wall. It was perfect for what I wanted but I needed it to not be a wall item since it needs to sit in front of the fake window. For some reason it still has a tendency to want to "attach" itself to the wall even tho it's cloned from a table plant and if you don't use bb.moveobjects cheat it will not allow you to place it near the wall. Once you use the cheat you can freely move it away from the wall. You will also need to use 9 to raise it to your desired height.

I think that's all the issues I could find when I tested it out in the game. If you're not scared away from all the problems then I hope you can find some use for these items in your game too!

TJ, let me first compliment you on the set.

You can easily fix the fact that the sims refuse to sit on the chair..... the chair as well as the cushion has a footprint, and that interferes with the way the sims are able to use it.

If you remove the footprint for the cushion the sim will ignore the fact that it is on the chair, and they will sit on it.

There is a tutorial at Sims 4 Studio on how to remove the footprint.

I hope this helps.

Thank you again though for the lovely content.

This is such a pretty set too! I only wish the items with text came in a Simlish swatch too, I'm weird like that and prefer not to break the immersion. But this is lovely, either way! Thanks TJ!

Thank you so much everyone! I'm so happy you like and can find some use for these items in your game too.

Anita - I went to S4S and did what the tutorial said about removing the footprint. But unfortunately, the cushion appear to have one, or it had a unique one, and when I did the the steps it showed to do in that case, it still doesn't work. I'm going to clone another item and see if that works. I just didn't have time.

Chicklet, some items do have a unique footprint, did you check that as well?
I hope you get it right because this is really a beautiful set!

Tracya450, Klapi1, ToriSims, Sam, & Lorry TYSM for the wonderful compliments! It thrills me that you liked this set, I was afraid it might be a little too "country" to appeal to some people but I liked it, and would actually love this in RL for myself too!

I have a bulging WIP folder with bits and pieces of several different sets I'm working on ... a few living rooms, a new dining room, I saw an adorable kitchen SIMspiration pic, a new bedroom and I even started on a bathroom! Plus, I still need to upload all my sets from my blog, I'm just lazy cause that's not fun and I'd rather be chatting and reading posts, or creating instead! LOL

Seriously, TJ... I've been collecting all the CBS cc... I do have a really special build creating in my mind's eye.

It hasn't fully formed yet - but it is totally coming together in there <3
