Hello there and welcome to my little corner of the world wide web.

My name is Eva and I create cc for The Sims 2. I have no plans to switch to TS3 in the near future. You may know me from several sims fora, where I usually go by the nicknames eefje00704 or eefje. (In case you were wondering, Eefje is the Dutch diminutive of Eva.) Garden of Shadows is an exception, I used to go by E.A. Poe there, but now it's just Eva.

I don't compressorize my stuff before I upload it, because I know that some people's computers/game don't react well to it. Feel free to compressorize yourself.

If my Maxis recolours don't show up for you, first check if you have CEP properly installed.

I have now added the tag 'medieval' to all of my entries that I believe contain something that can be used in a medieval game.

Kind of forgot about this other thing I uploaded last month, at the Keep. Oops. They're a bundle of recolours of the Medieval build items that came with the Uni EP.

I recoloured the double door, two story door, window and column that came with University. I also made a clone of the connecting column and made that recolourable and slaved it to the regular column. The window recolours come in two versions: with and without the inner beams. I also included a glassless window recolour. Each item has 100 recolours, both of the doors also have 34 recolours of the actual door part (as opposed to the frame). Each of the doors also lends it textures to the corresponding arch, and if you want some more variety, I recommend getting Leefish's Daniel Expansion set, which will also take all of these recolours.

This is a very crappy preview of a few of the recolours in game.

I've been neglecting this place a little lately. Nothing new there, really. I just got my computer back and I'm reinstalling everything on it, should be able to start working on my CiJ gift soon. I'm still working (at Duracell, you know, from the batteries) until July 29th, which is when the summer will really start for me (and hopefully it will stop raining by then). My grandfather's in hospital with a bad galbladder infection, so there's lots of driving back and forth to the hospital to do too. So I have another busy week ahead of me.

I did upload a few things lately, that I've been meaning to link to from here.

This is all I managed to get done for the GoS monthly theme. Wanting to do a set of deco dragons and a set of unicorns during the exam period turned out to be just a little bit too ambitious. So you just get the one dragon in two sizes.

Last exam tomorrow, then two days off, then summer job for a month, and then I have almost 2 months of vacation!

Yes, I'm still alive. I've been very busy finishing everything up for my internship portfolios and writing papers. I handed those all in yesterday, and now I have just one exam left to prepare for.

Anyway, these have been 95% finished for a long time, but I'm finally uploading them.

Parsimonious, a free site with tons of Sims 1, Sims 2 and Sims 3 custom content is in financial trouble. You can help them out by filling in a survey that will take about 1 minute of your time. Please help them out so that they don't have to close!

Link to Parsimonious. Link to survey is in that first post.

Hi there, long time no see!

I've been busy with teaching (luckily that's finally over), and writing papers, and working on prizes for the Plumb Bob Inn contest at the Keep.
I've also made the extracted TS3 steampunk telescope functional, that should be up tomorrow at GoS.

And I've participated in the C-A-S challenge at BPS. (Go vote if you haven't yet!)

I made this elf sim for it, and I want to eventually make a multi-pt set with other colourful elf sims with Fantasyrogue's ears (that I have yet to make) once Aquilegia releases her other skintones.

We ended up with a tie for the name of the medieval forum, so we had to have a moderator vote to decide. The result is:

eefje00704: (Default)

Hi guys,

If any of you are members over at the new medieval sims forum, and you haven't voted for the forum name yet, would you mind doing so? Pretty please? Both names are currently tied ...
eefje00704: (Default)
First, announcement: If you have registered at the medieval sims forum, and would like to vote for the forum name, now would be the time to do so. Voting ends on Friday. Vote here.

Secondly, another statue in 5 sizes:

Get it here.
eefje00704: (Default)

This and two other Castaway sculptures in several sizes, find them at the forum.

Bearded Axe

A bearded axe in 3 sizes. Each size comes in 2 versions: leaning against the wall and lying on the floor.

eefje00704: (Default)

Just some viking shields to hang on your walls, or to lean against them.

Can be downloaded here at the new forum specifically for medieval simming. Check out the rest of the forum too!

Just a little picture of what I have so far for the medieval bakery.

Yessssssssssss! Kim Clijsters has won the Australian Open!

I'm just making a little list of all the stuff suitable for medieval games that I want to make. I've been collecting suggestions over at GoS, but I'm putting it up here so that I have it all in one place and feel more obligated to actually finish them.

Hat's Saints (you'll see what I mean by that)
+ worshipable altar?


Owls (+ maybe as a parrot pet variant)
Does (maybe)
Sheep, because Sunni wants to be able to sheer her sheep and Blacky's don't come with that option :P
More bears

Profession clutter:

Butcher --> meat
Weaver --> loom, spinning wheel, baskets of wool, carding combs, spindles, baskets of thread, rolled or folded cloth,
Cobbler --> shoes, tools
Bakery --> oven, bread (single, on boards, in baskets), cakes, gingerbread, sacks of flour, salt, yeast, kneaded dough, rising dough, rolling pins 
Farmer --> plow, feed and water troughs, haystack, scarecrow,

Other random ideas:

Deco roofs
Water well
Hourglass (as alarm)
Church bells
Filled or empty baskets
Kitchen clutter
Place settings
Chairs and benches
Peddler's carts
Quills + pen replacement

Presently too difficult:

Glassless windows

If you play a medieval game and have more suggestions, feel free to post them.

First of all, a late happy birthday to xpinkyhayzx and to Fran (CuriousB/Bagfran)!

Secondly, a late Happy Newyear to all of you!

Thirdly, I have a new layout. Should be much easier on the eyes :)

And lastly, I participated in BPS and GoS's Secret Santa events this year.

At BPS, I made a gift for Amythestfenix. I made her the Pottery Barn Farmhouse canopy bed and matching endtable, and some deco clutter.

More pictures and download links this way. )
I have exams until the 31st of January, so I'm trying not to make anything until then. Which is hard, because creating is a lot more fun than studying. The next set I upload will definitely be medieval though.

ETA Nearly forgot. Remember the pigs and boars from a while back? RepulsiveDesire converted them to TS3.

Today was my day in GoS's advent calendar, so if that picture got you interested, have a look at what I posted. There's bedding, camels, hares/rabbits and deer bucks.

The Dead

This is my contribution to Garden of Shadows' monthly theme. (Yes, I am starting to get the feeling that all I ever make is for someone's monthly theme ...)

10 new meshes included: 4 tombstones, a coffin, a shovel, a tomb, a knight statue, a sarcophagus and a skeleton, with 2 recolours.

Psychosim adviced me to make some of the texture sizes smaller to reduce the filesize, so please redownload the set. Most of the meshes now have smaller textures, and I fixed the statue to appear in deco/statues, rather than deco/misc.

More pictures this way. )
