Featured upload! One More Slot Please! (with vertical shifting) [Update 2 Nov 2011]

by granthes Posted 16th Dec 2010 at 7:27 PM - Updated 4th Mar 2012 at 5:37 PM by granthes : Updated link to Tipsy OMSP
405 Comments / replies (Who?) - 13 Feedback Posts, 12 Thanks Posts
This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Updated for Patch 1.26 / Pets EP Will work with pre-pets patches as well.

Newshoes has created a tipsy add-on for the OMSP that is available in the thread Tipsy OMSP A great add-on to allow objects to lay over on their sides when placed on the OMSP. Very Cool Stuff(tm)!

Have you ever wanted to place an object somewhere in your house, and just couldn't make it fit?

What you need is an OMSP -- A One More Slot Package object


This allows you to place objects on the OMSP during buy mode. Then when you switch to play mode, the OMSP becomes invisible.

It appears in the Surfaces --> Misc.


To use the object, place it on the floor. It will appear as a red/white checkered object. Next, move it up/down using the menus.


To activate the menu hold Shift + Ctrl and Click on the object.

Next place the object of your choice on top of the OMSP. It helps to move the camera to where you are looking nearly straight down at the floor.

Now, you can move and rotate the OMSP to place the object where you want it to appear. Holding ALT down while dragging or rotating allows you to move it off of the grid.

Update Information
20 Dec 2010 -- Added non-English string tables
21 Dec 2010 -- Fixed corrupted strings
23 Jan 2011 -- Added French and German Translations

Note to translators.... This Mod uses fairly simple text entries. If you wish to contribute a translation, please feel free to PM me.

WARNING
There are several potential issues with this object.
1) Currently it cannot detect if you try to move it below the floor, or above the ceiling! If you do so, it will disappear from sight.
2) Large Kitchen appliances do not work on the OMSP. They fall back to floor level as soon as you place them.
3) Placing a SIM on the OMSP works, but DO NOT allow them to step off. They will fall off the world and you will have to teleport them back.
4) It may be necessary to turn the MoveObjects cheat to On to place some items.

Conflict Information
This is a totally new object. It should co-exist with any other custom content.

Policy Information
This object was created by granthes for the community.
Feel free to include it in any lots that you upload.
There really isn't any reason to recolor the object, since it is invisible in play mode.
Please don't claim this as your own creation, give credit back where it belongs.

Polygon Counts:
Vertices = 68, Polygons = 29

Additional Credits:
I would like to thank the usual suspects for their tools and knowledge: Inge and Peter Jones for s3oc, s3pc, etc. and help with using them.
Thanks to Jynx for help with the mesh.
Also, thanks go to orangemittens, sunhair for the inspiration for this project and to Scratch, Inge, Shivar, Srikandi and ingeli for help with testing.
Translations by ninoo and Killc*a

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Sims 3
Key: - File was updated after upload was posted
Filename - Tip: You can click the magnifying glass to see the archive contents Size Downloads Date
OMSP - Pre-Pets.zip | Description: The version of OMSP that works before 1.26 patch 86.9 KB 57,014 11th Nov 2011

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Even though the game is in dutch, the OMSP should work fine. All of the languages are supported even though only a few have been translated. You will simply see English menu choices.

I would strongly suggest that you take a look at this page and ensure that you have the OMSP installed correctly as well as to be sure that your modding framework is correctly installed as well: http://www.simswiki.info/wiki.php?t...3_Package_Files

Some of the pose mods suggests this object for if we want to put a Sim on a coach and do a pose there. How do we get them off of the object?

You need to use the moveobjects on cheat code to place them on the object, then again to take them back off. Just pick the sim up like they are an object and place them where you want.

Allowing a sim to walk or teleport off of the OMSP will cause the sim to fall through the ground and be uncontrollable. If you do have a sim that has fallen off you will need to use the resetsim cheat code to recover them.

This issue usually comes from having used custom content with the OLD style moding framework. The old style is no longer supported for objects like the OMSP that have script code in them. Please read this link for more details on how to correct it: http://www.simswiki.info/wiki.php?t..._Way_to_New_Way

Thank you for the fast help
only thing that is pretty dumb is that it takes about 3 times as long to read the text
then doing all the steps you need to do.

But anyways many thanks for the help
and by the way very nice mod.

this is great but there seems to be more of a drawback. since using it autonomy has been getting broken..never had the problem till I installed and started using this. I've gotten autonomy to work again but I went back into "pic mode" did some screenshots and sim-camera shots of other sims in poses and it breaks again so EVERYONE just stands around no matter what the autonomy level is set too.

may want to look into it. I doubt it's just some random problem since I've put dozens of hours on various plays with this being the ONLY mod addition and never had this issue before.

I have tested this thoroughly with Generations and have had no problems.

If you are having issues with it, please describe what isn't working and I will try to figure out what is going on.

Hello. Thank you very much for this mod! I love it.

I have a question though. What if I put the white/checkered block too low and it's in the ground? How do I get it out?
Edit: Nevermind. I just use the delete tool, hahaha. Thanks!!
