Hello Simmers!

Welcome to the first instalment of a series that I’m going to call ‘Creative Construction’ while building in The Sims 4.

Custom content exists and is a huge part of the way some people play the game, which help to add specific objects not available in The Sims 4 to date. That’s great, but what about people who don’t want to mod in new meshes and want to keep their game strictly vanilla? Well, you’ve come to the right place! Each post in this series is a mini-tutorial which will show you how to combine items and create something not available in the game!

Sectional Sofa

For some reason The Sims 4 does not yet have a sectional sofa in the game; not the base game or any of the downloadable content. I, for one, would love to see a more versatile piece for our Simmies to sit on. Follow these steps, and you can create something that’s passable!

Make sure to have the bb.moveobjects cheat enabled!

Use the wall tool to create a right angle. This will be the walls of your couch. Change your wall height by clicking on the half wall icon found under the wall tool. You can also change the wall trim by clicking on the icon below.

Find the Pillow Fluff cushion from the City Living EP and place it along the wall, leaving a half square of room in between. Use the ALT key when dragging to allow placing outside of the snapping floor grid. Place all along the walls. This is the seat.

Find thePeaceful Pouf Ottoman from the Spa Day GP and place it up against the wall, and use the ( 9 ) key to move it above the Pillow Fluff cushion. Double these up (one resting on the floor and one on top) on either end to hide the corners. Repeat until you cover the length of the walls.

Add some wall covering (paint, wallpaper, panel, etc.) and you’re ready to have a movie night!
