Your thoughts on the items of the Horse Ranch pack

    @RememberJoy A huge thank you for sorting all the stuff! That was extremely helpful. It was a lot easier for me to comprehend what I was looking at that way, so I really appreciate the time you spent doing it.

    I like that there are a lot of worn-out, old, and dirty looking things in both the build/buy and the CAS. I'm not wild about southwestern/cowboy style in general, but there are actually a number of individual items I feel I would use for storytelling purposes, mixed with other old and patched looking items like the basement kit, grunge kit, and werewolves items.

    I like the horse customization options. And horses are my main interest in the pack anyway.

    Not too excited about build mode. They missed Mechanical Bulls though there is a mod for that.

    I'm kind of excited for cas with the more western outfits,accessories and hats.

    I don't really have any thoughts on the items by now, but the dance looks fun.

    Huh. I think whoever put together this list miscounted somehow. A bunch of the windows are actually basegame. Like, just the same as those basegame "Mega" windows that every Oasis Springs house has. I'm pretty sure one of the hutches is basegame too, and the bed is the same as the one you get as a reward in the Painter career.
    The basketball is from City Living and there's also a deco basketball in Everyday Clutter.
    The platform style single bed is from Discover University.
    I don't even think these are recolors of existing objects (except possibly the Painter bed), they are just the same objects?

    Was curious, so I went into game to check this out. Here's what I found...

    So windows...

    I'm guessing these are the ones being referred to? I couldn't find any that looked exactly like the ones from this pack, so I grabbed the closest looking ones. Really not too similar though. (Base game on the left)

    As for the beds...

    Again similarities, but not exact.

    As for the hutch, not sure which one was being pointed out, so I grabbed the one that looked the most familiar. (The one on the left)

    None of the base game hutches are identical, but a hutch is a hutch.

    As for the basketball, as someone else pointed out, I believe it's a larger ball meant for the horses.

    I actually like the new double bed because I like that base game bed but the swatches on it are so few and hideous

    but yeah the balls definitely horse one

    I would like to see the swatches because currently I have mixed feelings. A lot of objects look familiar.

    Re the water pump thing. There is also one in Moonwood Mill, I observed Greg pulling out a dish with food from it...

    I like the CAS/BB. My catalogues are starting to feel overwhelming, might be time to get rid of CC that get less and less needed.

    Fun fact: the wishing well from Romantic Garden Stuff is a water source when off the grid.

    I think CAS is not too bad. As a cc user I don't usually put too much attention to CAS or B/B, but I love the dirty male clothes offered in this pack. Definitely using that. I also like the boots, hats, facial hair and accessories.
    The rocking chair is nice. I'll probably buy the grunge kit along with this since I've been meaning to get it anyway.
    Hopefully a cc maker comes up with saloon doors even if it's not properly animated because I just feel like that's a must for classic builds!
    Zombies, oh please oh please give us zombies!! :'(

    I wish they would put some of the same flair into beds that they do with the sofas TBH.
    Id love if they gave us something like that fairly plain bed with just your basic black/white/dark, light wood swatches but then made made more cover options. Like throws or pillows on beds, toys on kids beds and an unmade bed as well!

    Apart from the corn row/ braids.. are any of the new hairs not just slight alternates of hairs we already have 🙄

    I really miss the unmade beds from TS3! It would take minimal extra animation/object shape, and it would take the sim 1 sec to make their bed when getting up. But the fact that sims with so and so traits or in a bad mood etc would leave their bed unmade, would make for a huuuuge difference when it comes to the impression a messy vs tidy bedroom gives. Also, in some houses unmade beds could cause more house cleaning, while in others nothing extra. I like the idea of houses being a tad different + traits actually have an impact on something :)

    I love the rustic bb items. I can't wait to update my barn on my family farm lot. As far as CAS I like the boots and that ponytail braided hair.

    You might want to take a look at this video. He has a very unique style of video and likes to stir up controversies so his videos are not for everyone. That's why I will give you the timestamps. Between 0:56 and 2:03 he points out a few very similar hairstyles.

    ahh you are right @PifflePrincess and @RememberJoy .
    Extra thank you @RememberJoy for all the side by side pictures.

    I wonder if they just made them such similar items because they were trying to match existing assets?

    Maybe I missed seeing it, but I've looked several times, and there doesn't seem to be a cowboy shirt for children. They do get a hat and boots, however.
