Antiquated Brindleton
An 1890s Decades Challenge Save File
This save has been almost a year in the making, but it's finally here! It includes a completely rebuilt Brindleton Bay inspired by historic New England towns and set in the 1890s. This save uses a light amount of historical cc and most of the packs.
Download and details under the cut:
Tumblr media
Eight new residential lots
Seven new community lots
Six new households
Builds and households are all located in Brindleton Bay. The world is intended to be historically accurate to about 1890, though some liberties for functionality have been taken.
Builds in other worlds have been deleted. The necessary buildings, like dorms, active career lots, and the high school, have all been left in place.
Townies have been evicted, but not deleted, as I prefer EA townies to fully randomized townies.
If you’d like more period appropriate townies to add, the lovely @jewishsimming has some great historical ones to download and @cowplant-snacks has an amazing tutorial on how to manage your townies with MCCC.
REQUIREMENTS: I have all the packs except Batuu and some of the kits. I didn’t limit myself when building. I don’t have everything listed out here, but I will be uploading all the lots and households to my gallery, so if you’d like to know specific pack usage you’ll be able to check there. If you load in and things are replaced or missing and you think it looks obvious feel free to message me, I’m always happy to try to help you find something else that fits! This save includes historical CC, some is included in my download in folders and some you will need to download from the creators directly. The CC required is listed and linked below, you need to download these linked pieces in ADDITION to the included cc folders.

Consumer Research
Not my normal type of post, but if you’re 13+ and looking to make some extra money while sharing your perspective with major brands I recommend signing up to be part of a consumer research panel and completing research studies from the comfort of your own home!
Some of my favorite panels are:
Why are you posting this? My day job is a User Experience Researcher - which means I conduct studies to understand how people use software so that development teams can make changes and improvements that benefit REAL people. I’m currently conducting a study which MIGHT be a good fit for some of you :)  Happy to answer questions about my job or consumer/ux research, dms are welcome!

Thanks for updating since I haven’t been keeping up with Sims I didn’t even know beds broke!
Tumblr media
Linzlu's Beds - Updated
Since @linzlu's taking a hiatus, I thought I'd go ahead and update these two beds to be compatible with High School Years. On the left is from the 1920 Bedroom set and on the right is from the Samantha Collection. I only changed the mattresses, as they are what have the bed functionality. If Linzlu decides to update these later on, I will be happy to remove them.
**Both items originally came from merged packages so they won't replace files when you add them to your mods folder. Please make sure you are using the mattresses with pancreas in the name and description.**
My apologies if someone else has already done this, but I did not see it posted anywhere.

Thanks to @peebsplays for explaining this. I had good intentions of making a “tip&ticks” type post to explain this organization method when I started about a year ago. Only my newest CC is organized this way, but I have an ambitious dream of rerealeasing all of my old CC with update display index and thumbnails.
I hope more historical creators will adopt the “display index by decade” practice!
Hi! Can you please explain what does "Display indexed by decade" means? Thank you!
Hello! This means that the display index number in CAS is set to the decade the clothing would be for. For example, if the outfit is for the 1820's the CAS sort number is 1820. So when you have multiple pieces of cc they show up in order with the earlier decades coming first. @linzlu does this as well and I believe @historicalfictionsims does too. Here's a visual example:
Tumblr media
@linzlu was the first to do this and I thought it was genius and a great way of sorting historical CAS content so I started adding it to my own.
If you want to sort other CAS content this way or if anyone else would like to do this you can change the Display Index number is S4S or with CASTools (preferable if there are a lot of swatches).
Tumblr media
I hope that helps!

WCIF a less modern basketball hoop?
Does anyone know of any CC basketball hoops that look less modern than the ones that came with City Living?  I need it to go with the middy top & bloomers I just released!

oohh i love your american girl cc!! are you ever planning to make the actual dolls themselves?
As Dolls for child Sims to play with? Extremely unlikely.
Sims versions of the girls? Sort of? I have Sims of the girls I’ve made CC for in my game, but they’re meh, not share worthy. If you’re looking for AG Sims for your game, @jenplayssims has families uploaded to the gallery.

Have you ever though of doing another 1960s set? Have you ever seen the movie goodfellas? Its a good movie and I really like the costume and clothes specially the ones from karen, maybe if you are interested you can make a goodfellas inspired set?
1960 is on the voting list for decade of the month on Patreon, so I'll do that decade if/when it wins! My mom is really into mob movies so she had me watch Goodfellas when I was in high school, that means it's been a really long time since I've seen that movie.
