Modular Furniture Series 4- Modular Bathroom


This project was about halfway done when I shelved it in May, so it was just a matter of picking up where I left off. I'm really happy with this set.

I have spent massive amounts of time playtesting this set. I tested each object individually, and hammered out all the kinks. As far as I've seen, there are no glitches and everything works exactly as it should as far as slave textures, joint alignment, placement, etc.

A few notes about the project: Series 4 is a bit of a misnomer. Prior to this set, I've only made two other modular furniture sets. But as it complements the Cargo Bay Series 4 set, it seemed incongruent to name it Series 3. Unless otherwise noted, objects are base-game (See more specific descriptions below).

The focus of this set is to create realistic crew quarters, kitchens, bridges, etc. The furniture is designed to be stacked together, giving your sims' heads, bathrooms, and spas a built-in look, for more realistic sets and backdrops. As I am more of a storyteller/ dollhouser than an actual player, my main focus was on how good the objects look in-game, but they have been thoroughly playtested and work well for players who focus on gameplay, too.

Please read carefully: The single bed and utility chair from the crew quarters set and the range from the kitchen set provide the master textures for this entire set. As the repository technique is used, I have included the repository objects so you don't get flashing blue textures in your game. To keep the size of the file reasonable, THE RECOLORS FOR THESE THREE OBJECTS AREN'T INCLUDED. They can be downloaded from the crew quarters post, HERE!

Note: all files have been Compressorized.

Modular Community Showers

Requires UNI. Standard soap-and-water showers for the traditionalist.

Details:

Polys: Box 464, Right and Left 452, Center 440
Recolorable subsets: Base and panels
Egghead stuff: just community showers, cloned from the UNI community shower.


Modular Sonic Showers

Standard issue for most starships. They're the same size as the community showers, so you can mix and match.

Details:
Price: §1000
Polys: Box 128, Right and Left 116, Center 104
Recolorable subsets: Base and panels
Egghead stuff: Cloned from atavera's sonic shower, but heavily modded. I removed the annoying alien abduction effect and replaced it with nice, thick steam. I rotated the routing slot 90 degrees and lowered it slightly so that the sim enters it the right way.

Details:
Price: Bath Tub §1500, Corner Shower §2000
Polys: Bath Tub 704, Corner Shower 598

    1. Hi, Xia.

      Thanks much for the praise. I really liked this set overall, but there were a couple of pieces I wasn't thrilled with. I'll be uploading a huge set this weekend, if I can find the time to do it. Stay tuned, more to come.
