1. The Mid Pop Collection
Aside from many showstage-related objects, the Sims 3 Showtime expansion pack mainly offers buy and build items of three designs: Regency, Spanish Colonial and Mid Pop. Since my childhood room sported green furniture, a plush yellow carpet, and orange curtains, I still have a weakness for 60s and 70s style decoration and rejoiced over the latter set. Alas, I lost interest in converting the Mid Pop objects halfway through, because, for one, some of them are plain ugly (the lamps), and for another, there are far too few things to decorate a typical 60/70s room with (like a fruit bowl, a snack/peanut bowl, a wine carafe, a tray with glasses, or some such). And why the folks at EA are not able to make matching recolors of matching furniture is beyond me. Whatever, in my compilation you'll find 15 Mid Pop conversions and a table lamp that I cobbled together from two Maxis meshes. For the furniture, I used the red, brown, and green shades from the coffee table, added an orange shade, choose two additional patterns from the TSRW Pattern Editor, and made a matching set.
Enjoy the "eye candy". :)
Objects in the set: Couch, loveseat, living chair, dining chair, dining table, coffee table, end table, bottle cabinet, two plants, wall planter, wall rose, sculpture, two wall panels, table lamp
Please note that the loveseat is an add-on to the couch to which it is slaved. You'll neat the couch for the loveseat to show up in your game.
As I wasn't able to get The Sims 2 running correctly since I installed Windows 8, I had to test the conversions in The Sims Life Stories. For that it might be that everything is base game compatible, though I wouldn't put my shirt on it. As always, use the downloads at your own risk!
