Sea & Surf & Chipped Paint  

I've finished as much of the set as I can bear to do right now. It gets boring make file after file in SimPE. Worth it, but dull.

This set consists of Curious B recolors of Nengi65's Sea & Surf Windows & Doors, Simply Siding in Salt by Maxis, and the UpRite Column by Maxis. Enjoy these, because I know I will!

The outer frame for the door is recolorable separately from the actual door. The actual door is slaved to the windows. Door frame is not, so that's why you get 84 instead of 42 files.

I've included pictures of a few of the color combinations so that you can get an idea of how the set looks. I didn't include a swatch because these are standard CuriousB colors.

Siding | Windows & Doors | Columns


I'm kicking around the idea of recoloring Moune's Torrox build set in these chipped CuriousB colors. What do you all think?
(Siding in this pic is Robin's Egg. Doors and windows are in Verdigris.)

Both links or just the bottom one? I hope it's not the 4shared link, because I like keeping my work on mediafire and defunct site archives on 4shared. Just in case, here's a mediafire hosted link. http://www.mediafire.com/?9bd7j198h32n7pg

The other is a link to SimsCave forum with links to someone elsé's archive of Nengi65's goodies. Here's the direct link to that: https://www.box.com/s/639656f948a0a2995327

Sorry, I wasn't terribly clear, was I. XD It was the Mesh Set link that wouldn't work, which is the 4shared one. Thanks for the other link, I have them now! :D

No worries. I wasn't sure if 4shared pulled that nonsense or not. Glad to know that they do, because it's just ridiculous.

Love those siding recolors, thank you so much! :)

Glad you like! I've been in love with HolySimoly's weathered siding sets for ages, and I finally figured out how to make my own.

I absolutely love these!
Also, I do like the look of the Tarrox build set so far. :)

Aw, thank you! I'm having trouble deciding if the Torrox set looks worn enough or too worn. I've been staring at it too long.

Oooo the Torrox set looks so. pretty. O.O

And I am in LOVE with your recolors of the windows/doors and siding :)
untidyfanuntidyfan on August 30th, 2012 02:37 am (UTC)
Thank you! All the credit for the color options belongs to CuriousB. They're nice and versatile, and they make nice exterior color options.

Oh, these are really awesome! I can always use more recolors of the simply siding. :D
untidyfanuntidyfan on August 30th, 2012 02:38 am (UTC)
Glad you like! This is my favorite siding, followed in a close second by the Unexpected Siding. I'll post a template if you like.

These are lovely!

I use the Torrox set on everything I build. If you do these recolors for them that would be awesome!!! ^.^
untidyfanuntidyfan on August 30th, 2012 02:40 am (UTC)
Thank you! I really like the Torrox set, too. It's so versatile and nicely repositoried for my recoloring sanity. I think I might start off with Aelia's color actions for a bit more variety.

Aah I'm ALL OVER these! The column is an unexpected bonus of win! Thank you so very much :D
untidyfanuntidyfan on August 31st, 2012 02:27 am (UTC)
D'awww, thanks. *blushes* I use the columns a lot on my beachy houses, and it didn't make sense to me that everything but the columns would be worn.

Oh, me too. I think that while I prefer jewelled tones in real life, the variety ACYL has is just perfect. Enjoy!
Ishiishi09 on September 3rd, 2012 03:28 pm (UTC)
Oh, these are perfect! Now I'm inspired to make beach houses :) Thank you! <3

ETA: Your Torrox recolours are gorgeous :) Looking forward to them ;)

I'm glad you like them! I love building beachy houses, too, and there wasn't enough out there for me. Have you spotted these yet? http://sims2artists.com/index.php?topic=3893.0

And thank you! I'm arguing with myself on the Torrox set. I want all the colors! Aelia, CuriousB, An_na's, my personal favorites...

This is beautiful, I might have shed a tear. :,)
And I downloaded the Torrox set right away before I remembered that you haven't shared those recolors yet ... :D Even if it was only that one recolor, that would fit my game perfectly.

Thank you so much! I'm still working on the Torrox set, but I don't think I have the doors and windows quite chipped enough yet. Well, I go back and forth on it. I'm doing one set of Aelia's colors, but I think I'll still do ACYL for this, too.

Looks gorgeous!! Makes me wanna start building some stuff on Twikkii Island!
untidyfanuntidyfan on October 31st, 2012 11:51 pm (UTC)
I've created a beach vacation 'hood using this set. It was a struggle not to use them on the "expensive" hotel! Build things and share if you'd like. I need more lots to fill in the neighborhood.

Thanks for sharing.

Unsure if this is S2 or S3 content
Are these S2 CC? I'm looking for doors and windows that look exactly like this for my S3 game, so I thought I'd ask if these were for 2 or 3, especially since all your other content seems to be for S2
untidyfanuntidyfan on April 9th, 2016 10:21 am (UTC)
Re: Unsure if this is S2 or S3 content
It is for TS2. I feel pretty confident that the meshes have been converted for TS3, but not sure where to find them.
