Paddy Murphy’s Pub 2x2 Community Lot More pictures here & here.
Lochlander had asked if I would share this lot or post the floorplan, so I figured I’d do both. Feel free to copy/recreate this lot in your own game if you don’t particularly want to download the package file. :)
Please use the Clean Installer. I’ve also bulk-renamed my files, so they won’t necessarily overwrite yours if there are duplicates.
I have all EPs and SPs except Teen Style Stuff. Obviously, Nightlife is required.
Required but NOT INCLUDED:
NL Sectional recolors: I’m fairly certain the wood recolor is by Poppet, but the fabric is either by Poppet or Anna.
Ohbehave Miasmata tree: Ohbehave’s wonderful Miasmata set makes heavy use of the repository technique, and the only tree I used on the lot is a slaved file so you will need the master from her set to make it show up. (The whole set is amazing and everyone should have it already, just sayin’.)
The lot has a second floor, but it’s completely empty. I originally wanted to model the lot after several pubs I’ve been to that have an open second floor with a balcony to look down on the stage below. However, I couldn’t actually execute the idea to my liking, but thought the exterior looked better with a second floor so it remained for decorative purposes only. :P If you wanted to make the second floor functional, it’d be easy enough to just delete one of the corner booths and put a staircase in.
I shamelessly reused the same bar posters by Around the Sims all over the place because I really liked them and I REALLY like Guinness. I even broke my Simlish-only rule for them because I was too lazy to figure out how to make my own recolors. Maybe some day… (Sidebar: If anyone knows of other good bar posters, particularly in Simlish, I’m all ears!)
The bar shelf is a TS3 conversion by HafiseAzale, and at the time of building/packaging I used the default color. However, withlovefromsimtown recently shared some recolors (one of which matches the bar and counters perfectly, I’ve already checked in-game). Definitely worth a look if you want the whole thing to be matchy-matchy.
IT TOOK SO LONG TO FIGURE OUT A CONFIGURATION WHERE ALL OF THE INSTRUMENTS WOULD BE ACCESSIBLE
Not the most ground-breaking feat as far as architectural design goes (I like big boxes and I cannot lie), but I think it’s rather cozy. :) I also firmly believe that nothing beats an Irish pub at Christmastime, hence the liberal use of lights and garland throughout.
It’s no wonder Leda didn’t want a party. Her cousins Whiskey and Jack (my one-point grouchy sims of Gen 3) do.not.get.along. I’m pretty sure this rivalry began in toddlerhood when Gramma Radcliffe babysat them at the legacy house.
It was also Leda’s last day as a kid. She gave her mother’s explicit instructions not to throw a party (which they didn’t, technically) They just invited all of her family over to watch her blow out the candles.
Eliza attempted to cook some soup for lunch and managed to set the new kitchen on fire. Good thing they have renter’s insurance. I tried to catch some of the cute firemen animations. I never realized they do this whole freak out, look around, and adjust straps when they hop out of the truck. So cute.
Dulce decided to sell her shop and start a new business venture. She invited over Meadow Thayer, who was her manager to brainstorm ideas.
Pleasantview is about to be fumigated for pests (corruption) so the Caliente’s are in a rental until they find their new home in Wrightsberg. Eliza is still in her 30’s, but Dulce is 42 now, so they both got an age appropriate makeover. Eliza loves her outlandish makeup though and will definitely be wearing shiny, green eyeshadow till she dies. lol.
I finally finished that wip dress I posted a while back. Everything was hand-painted on this one so I’m pretty pleased with it. :)
It’s based off a real dress… the original had a transparent layer over a simple white dress which I tried to re-create. I used Remi’s edit of an H&M dress, (included in the download) but I’ve also got a PSD for those of you who’d like it on the original mesh. (or if you want more colors or something)
