Backyards, Decks, and Block Parties
Notes: The Sunny Backyard set has two ground texture options: have a party in the backyard or in a parking lot. 3-D-C’s set includes roads and dummy buildings to build either a lawn ground plane with a wall or a more urban-looking block party scene. The Wooden House is an obj that needs to be imported. Foreclosed Houses also has billboard houses and trees for background filler.
Things To Put In the Yard
Greenhouse || Solitary Trunk || Maple Tree || Flowering Tree || Flower Barrel || Potted Violet || Potty Plant || Barrel Planters || Planters || Terracotta Planters || Arbor Bench || Swing Bench || Chair Swing || Morphing Hammock || Garden Patio Set || Garden Patio Chair and Table || Garden Set PZ3 || Plastic Chair || Lawn Chair || 50s Deck Chair || Patio Parasol || Tent Canopy || Picnic Table #01 || Picnic Table #02 || Bamboo Bench || Rustic Bench #01 / #02 || Park Bench Natural || Wrought Iron Bench || Garden Bench || Vinyl Fence || Garden Fence || Fence #01 and #02 || Mailbox #01 || Mailbox #02
Notes: The Greenhouse Set comes with lots of extras — I was going to put this in the next post because the greenhouse seemed more park-like, but I ended up listing it here because of the additional props. The Solitary Trunk includes a grass ground prop, the Violets use some Poser procedural mats, so DS folks will need to adjust for that, and the Potty Plant’s pot has a no-face morph. The Garden Set PZ3 works fine for me in DAZ Studio, after much file path fixing. The Bamboo Bench includes a fan and a mosquito coil (alas, I couldn’t find any freebie mosquitoes.)
Backyard Food Fixings
BBQ Grill and Utensils || Charcoal Bag + Briquettes || Steak || Hamburgers, cooked and uncooked || Big Burger || Toon Food Burger || Hot Dog #01 || Hot Dog #02 || Toon Food Hot Dog || Pickle || Ketchup || Mustard || A1 Steak Sauce || Salt & Pepper Shakers || Morphing Beer Can || Pook’s Holiday Ale || Pilsners || Simple Beer Prop || Beer Keg || Tonneau Bar || Bar Add-Ons || Watermelon || Fruits || V4 Eat and Drink Poses
Notes: Several of these props will need to be scaled down. The brand name food bottles should be non-commercial use unless retextured. The beer keg is an old prop — an untextured obj import — but it can be made to look a bit nicer. Most poses for V4 can work for M4 with a few tweaks. (I have DS3 mats for the Pook Ale here.)
Lemonade Stand || DIY Painting Set || Sawhorse || Plastic Crate || Beercase || Apple Crate || Wooden Crate || Wooden Pallet || Sign Prop || Cookies and Brownies DS / Poser || Lemon (DS only) || Lemonade Set || Lime || Styro Cup || Money || Balloons #01 / #02 / #03 || Bunting || Dynamic Pennants (DS only)
Notes: The sign for the lemonade stand can be changed in PS/PSP if necessary; plain mat presets also available. I included a few “build your own lemonade stand” props, for a more homemade look. The apples in the Apple Crate are separate props and can be deleted in the event the little entrepreneur needs something to sit on. The brownies/cookies are separate props as well as grouped on plates. The Lemonade Set comes with lemons and lemon pieces.
A Reason To Have A Party
Fireworks || Sparklers || Roman Candle || Bottle Rocket || Disposable Lighter Set || Lighter || Uncle Sam Hat || 4th July Lashes || Morphing Flag || Party Cake + Props || American Sweetheart textures for My Vest || Patriotic for Floral Sundress
Notes: The Roman Candle and Bottle Rocket are old props and not really suited for closeups. The sparkler set comes with hand poses for V4, M4, and K4. The “happy birthday” deco on the cake can be hidden and it and the balloons recolored to a 4th of July theme.
Play The Whole Day Long
Big Bubbles (page 7) || Bubble Maker || Making Bubbles || Bubbles || Bubble Trouble || Pinwheel || Summertime Toys || Water Gun #01 || Water Gun #02 || Swing Set || Swing Set Poses K4 || Slide || Rusty Junk || Park Props: Merry-Go-Round / Slide / Seesaw / Little Swing || Sandbox || Tree Swing || Tire Swing || Bug Catching Set
Notes: The Water Gun #02 set comes with corresponding water props, though they load for me in DS with the opacity set to “0,” leading to invisible squirts and splats. 🙂 Retexture several of the props from the Rusty Junk set and they’ll be fine for a backyard or park. The sand texture for the sandbox isn’t included, but it’s part of Hobobo’s portfolio.
Getting Around the Neighborhood
Notes: The tricycle obj is a static prop but it’s useful even its parts can’t be posed. I included a bandage because I remember what sometimes happens when you mix bikes and kids…
Neighborhood Critters & Their Props
Hummingbird || Little Birds || Boston Terrier || Cat #01 / #02 || Westie || Fly || Cute Ladybug || Butterfly || Butterfly textures || Dragonfly Scatters || Firefly Scatters || Hummingbird Feeder || Cherub Bird Bath || Dog Collar || Dog Chain || Morphing Flyswatter || Flyswatter || Bug Spray
Notes: The Butterfly loads quite large (Mothra!!) The ladybug is toony, but ladybugs are kinda toony to begin with. The cats, Westie, fly, and scatters are static props, but the hummingbird, birds, terrier, and butterfly have movement options.
Textures for Paid-For Items
Reminder: Oftentimes there are file path errors for props and/or material files, so it’s always a good idea to check before installing.
