It has been quite the week for The Sims. The release of the new Sims 4 Kits – the new type of DLC – has had a mixed response. While there is much to love about the Kits, players have many other concerns, too.
The biggest sticking point is their price tag. And, of course, the myriad bugs that come with the new gameplay added through the Bust the Dust Kit. Luckily, you can disable the Sims 4 Dust System, but that’s not what this article is about.
One of our Sims 4 creator favs, Ravasheen, has recently released a content set that’s going to make building cafes – or even tiny apartments – a whole lot easier.
You know the builds we’re talking about – the ones that have a sort of hatch where Sims can sit and order their coffee or treats and work or have a natter. Of course, there are ways to create this without custom content, but they don’t quite have the exact “floating” effect offered by these creations.
When we interviewed Rava recently, she said that one of the things she loves about creating custom content for The Sims 4 is that her Patreon supporters are her “boss”, and that is underscored by the fact that these counters were made off the back of feedback from her Patreons.
Here’s what RVSN wrote on the Patreon post released with these counter tops:
This was a fun idea that was tossed around a few days ago on my patron-exclusive discord channel. These function as wall-mounted countertops!
All of the countertops in the ‘Over The Counter’ set are base game compatible. They have a small footprint size of 1×2 tiles which accommodates two chairs. Because there is no base to them, it does not allow dishwashers or sinks to be placed in them. Sims can sit at the chairs, eat, read, write and other various interactions.
Because they are also super narrow, it doesn’t allow things like appliances to fit on them. I am working on some wall cutouts to go with these to place over them! So stay tuned!
And here’s a quick snapshot view of all the different options you get with these. Each of these also come in a variety of swatches.
