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.

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.

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

I'm trying really hard to get this to work. I want it so bad. I'm not able to bring up the menu to make it go up or down. Could you tell me if this might conflict with something like other hacks or OMSP's.

Thank you for making this. I really really want it. :D

Nope, I've been trying for the last hour to bring up the menu and it doesn't work for me. I'm really hurt.

Thank you Serendipity for your reply. Unfortunately, this does not help. I did try testingcheatsenabled and then ctrl+shift+click - just as the directions say here, but the only menu that comes up for me is "clone". This is so frustrating. Must be something in my game (or not) that is preventing this from working for me. I'm scratching my head - any more help???

And yes, I am in buy mode. I will try to post a picture if this helps.

I have WA, AMB, HEL, and LN. Delphy's dashboard isn't showing any conflicts for me. Maybe try running it to see if OMSP is conflicting with something.

When I was placing the OMSP, I was using testingcheatsneabled and moveobjects. I *think* whenever I tried to click on OMSP and accidentally clicked on the object that was on it instead, I got the 'clone' option. I'm sure you've tried it without an object on it, so I don't know if that is causing the issue or not.

If you can't seem to find anything obviously making it not work, try taking out all of your package files except OMSP. That way you'll know if it's the OMSP itself or something else causing the problem.

Sorry, wish I could be more help.

I just found out that there are issues with different languages with the OMSP. Are you using the English language game?

"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."

Where do they go exactly? O_o

granthes and serendipity - I've been googling around and have found that since some patches and updates, people have been having problems with getting testingCheatsEnabled to work as well. Yes, something to do with the Euro version. I am using the English language as I'm here in the States. I have all the EP's and SP's and most of the Store items. Patched to version 6.1.11.009001. Windows 7. I do NOT use Awesome Mod or that other one (the name escapes me at the moment) I use sliders and camera mods, No Mosaic and the Twaillan's Super computer hacks. And yes, my next step is to take out all CC and hacks except for this OMSP. Crossing my fingers..... stay tuned....

granthes, incase it will help you solve the problem - English version, all EP's and HEL SP, patched to 6.1.11.009017, Vista 64-bit.
I use most of Twallan's mods, and aWT's slider hack.

divalbw2, crossing my fingers for you!

For anyone having issues with the menus, make sure ALL your EPs have been patched not just LN. Verify via the launcher and Game_Help:TS3_Patching:Patch_Download/Currentwiki This works on 1.18 without testingcheatsenabled for me.

I also think there are some issues with different languages. My game is in Brazilian Portuguese, and even though the mod works perfectly and flawlessly, the menus have no texts. Thank goodness there's this handy menu screenshot you've posted :D
