LifeStories Buy Bundle Notes
« on: May 09, 2017, 09:01:55 pm »

March 2018 Update!
HugeLunatic made some improvements to my favorite bundle so please re-download.
- subsets added:
    reward hot tub's tub can be recolored separately from the wood
    shakely table tops and dresser top can be recolored separately from the bases
- fixed a floating bit of cushion on the shakely living chair
- incorporated the shakely seating master and LordDarcy's CEP into the bundle
    You can remove both of these if you had them: ls_livingchairshakely_master and zLdDarcy_CEP_Stories

Since I started recoloring the Proper Life Stories Conversions, I've edited and added a few things. Here's what's been changed and/or just a description of what a file does:

- the reward tv has correct repair animations (credit to LordDarcy)
- the pool table's groups were fixed (credit to Havelock)
- the reward bar's inside shadow was fixed (credit to Havelock)
- recolorability added to almost everything (credit to LordDarcy and HugeLunatic)
- rugs can be placed off-grid
- bali furniture is repositoried
- shakely furniture is repositoried with subsets added (credit to HugeLunatic)
- the teak outdoor chair has recolorable wood and cushion subsets (credit to HugeLunatic)
- the reward hot tub has recolorable wood and tub subsets (credit to HugeLunatic)

argon_instrument_hack-al and argon_pieguitaracc
I play-tested with just these files and didn't have any jump-bug, tipjar, or 'join' problems but the reward guitar is the only custom instrument I have.

I think PetStories had this animation/option but it had to be re-added to work in ts2?
Here it is for all the grills

ls_riley_coffee_black and ls_riley_coffee_white

Sims will put espresso cups and coffee mugs in the dishwasher if one is really close or on the ground if there's no surface nearby

both paintings are low on the wall for non-shadowy shiftability
