Redoing Curios Directory, House 1


When BPS was open I spent hours going through Curios Directory. For me it was for the build items and seeing what ideas they came up with!

I was just going back through the directory via the wayback machine and realised alot of the links are now broken or obsolete. So I thought I’d give it a go to fix it up, I’m thinking at some point I will need a hand for items whose links don’t work, or just plain can’t find anymore so feel free to hit me up either here or at my Tumblr.

Also there is ALOT here not mentioned, I havnt really done the hard yards in finding this stuff, it was previous members at BPS. All I’ve done is cut and paste then go search for live links. If theres something in the pics thats not already found, and you either have it or know where it is let me know and I will add it, or if something not found that you’d like found then ask in the comments and everyone who sees this can have a hand in looking for it!

31 thoughts on “Redoing Curios Directory, House 1

  1. I know this was a tedious and time consuming project. Just wanted to say thanks, because as much cc I thought I had downloaded, I now have found new places to scour looking for game content. Really appreciate the work you did here. Thank you for resurrecting this build.

    Liked by 1 person

  2. 2 Years ago I got obsessed with all their houses and got so angry that I couldn’t download them that I built House 1 from scratch using only the pictures to work from. It is actually the 1st thing I ever posted on my tumblr page in June 2015.

    I since then managed to download a whole lot of their houses partly furnished so do have a lot of the missing items needed here.

    I will send a link with everything in as soon as I have it all together. I had to reinstall all their houses to find it all.


  3. Sorry for the late reply been busy like a beaver. I have sent you an e-mail with 12 links to the stuff you are short here and 2 additional pictures of the front of this house. I am going to put all the missing cc into this house and then package it and post a link. Hopefully I won’t get sued for doing it. Just finishing a lot for my Tumblr account then this will get my full attention.


  4. HappySoul the walls used in the front of the house are by 4ESF Bedroom 8. There are 2 Black Wood Panels, one used on the fence in the front and 2 side walls by driveway and the other one on the one side of the house. The brown wood wall of the house is by Rensim and its called Wood Panels Dark.

    Hello! Pic 17 white recolor of Bella’s chair can be found at Simscave. The route to it is following: TS2 Sharing Area > Simbella > Forum Gifts > Forum Gift Bella Forum Chair by Birgit 🙂


    • Sorry hun, been over a month you posted this and I have yet to respond! Last three months have been totally crazy in my neck of the woods! Looking forward to seeing your redo on curios house! 🙂
