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' ready rooms, observation lounges, and wardroms 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 5-tile, 3-panel console from Bridge Set 1 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 RECOLORS THREAD.

Note: all files have been Compressorized.

Armchair, Loveseat, Sofa and Recliner

Details:
Price: Armchair §400, Loveseat §600, Sofa §800, Recliner §700
Polys: Armchair 1136, Loveseat 1256, Sofa 1376, Recliner 2696
Recolorable subsets: Base and cushion
Egghead stuff: Standard furniture. They work like Maxis seating.


Round Armchair, Loveseat, Sofa and Recliner

Based roughly on a Morrocan pouf. They give they ready room a look that's a bit more informal.

Details:
Price: Armchair §400, Loveseat §600, Sofa §800
Polys: Armchair 1436, Loveseat and Sofa 1528
Recolorable subsets: Base and cushion
Egghead stuff: Standard seating


Modular Sectional Set A

A fully modular sectional set. I made all the pieces for building a sectional sofa, but since EAxis did such a half-*ssed job on their modular sofa globals, I couldn't get the clone to work right.

Details:
Price: Armchair §400, Loveseat §600, Sofa §800, Corners §200
Polys: Armchair 80, Concave corner 104, Convex corner 86, Loveseat 128, Sofa 176
Recolorable subsets: Base and cushion
Egghead stuff: The seating is standard and the corners are strictly deco, cloned from a Maxis sculpture. I'm a bit disappointed; the armchair isn't compatible with coffee tables (EAxis did a half *ssed job on the armchair globals).


Modular Sectional Set B

Identical to the A set, but remapped so that the solid part of the testure map shows. Pretty clever, Huh?

Details:
Price: Armchair §400, Loveseat §600, Sofa §800, Corners §200
Polys: Armchair 80, Concave corner 104, Convex corner 86, Loveseat 128, Sofa 176
Recolorable subsets: Base and cushion
Egghead stuff: The seating is standard and the corners are strictly deco, cloned from a Maxis sculpture.


Ready Room Desks

A whole set of desks, extracted from some of my previous sets and completely remeshed and remapped.

The "D" desk had a severe slot referencing error preventing sims from serving food once the table was placed. The new version of the desk has corrected this. Please re-download.

Details:
Price: 3x2 desks §1200, 3x1 desks §1000, 2x1 desks §800, Desk Deco §200
Polys: Desk A 3880, Desk B 366, Desk C 410, Desk D 476, Desk Deco 177
Recolorable subsets: Base and multipanel
Egghead stuff: A lot of work went into these desks. Desks C and D are mirrored; there are two versions of each desk. Desk D has four slots: the center slot is in the standard position and great for computers. the left and right slots had to be moved inward so that items don't hang over the desk. They don't work very well except as deco slots. The slot on the sidebar also works best as a deco slot. To complete the look of an Intrepid-class ready room desk, the desk deco can be placed on the sidebar slot.

The desk deco is slaved to the 5-tile, 3-panel bridge console. As always, the object is included so that the slave doesn't flash blue in-game, but no recolors for the console are included.

Desk A (3x1) is the master object for the multipanel material. I've included 25 recolors of the multipanel: there are hammered copper, marble, shiny metal, Pookleted wood inlays, pastel glows, and glass.



Coffee Tables and End Tables

Coffee tables and end tables to complement your sofas and sectionals.

Details:
Price: 1x1 §100, 2x1 §200, End table 100
Polys: Square 36, Square with legs 548, Quarter-round 96, Quarter-round with legs 608, Half-round 188, Half-round with legs 700, Curved end table 412
Recolorable subsets: Base and multipanel
Egghead stuff: Standard coffee tables and end tables. The backs of the quarter-round and half-round tables line up; they can be placed together to make completely round coffee tables.


Ready Room Chairs

Standard dining/desk chairs. Extracted from my previous sets and remapped.

Details:
Price: §300
Polys: Chair A 1523, Chair B 1403, Chair C 652, Chair D 960, Chair E 3522, Chair F 2252
Recolorable subsets: Seat
Egghead stuff: Standard dining chairs.


Here's a couple of things I threw together using this set (but the possibilities are pretty much endless):


The new furniture can also be mixed and matched with my other furniture sets, like this:

  2. This is really detailed. I love that it's all repository. Thanks for this!

    1. Yeah. Before I made this set, one of my biggest gripes was that nothing matched. With the repository technique, you can make rooms full of things, all the same color.
