Information (Click for more details):
This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
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 MTS2 - check the sidebar.
This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
Cop-A-Feel: Loveseat OMSP
Add a chair OMSP to your existing furniture (or whatever) and your sims will autonomously sit there when they need a chair. I wanted these for my teens bedrooms so they can read or eat a sandwich on their bed but they'd be great for dorm rooms too. I imagine machinima and story creators have better options available already considering all of the amazing pictures I see so I can't see how these would be useful for creators. So with that in mind, I decided to only make a few heights for my sims to sit on everyday type objects: beds, toy boxes and the normal chair height specifically but those heights turned out to be pretty versatile.
Seating/Dining Room - $0
These aren't perfect and the greater the height difference between the original chair and stool animations the more obvious that becomes. Sims heels also clip into the bed frames (some more than others) but using the stool animations for getting on and off the bed are much better than the chair animations so I think it's more than a fair trade. There's a short video on YouTube showing these in use that you're welcome to look at.
When placing these I found that for some objects--including the bed--you need to pull out the OMSP a quarter of a tile or sims won't be able to use them. For other objects, like with the toy box, you can simply place them like normal and they work fine. For most objects as long as you can see the full red tab sims seem to be able to use them. If they do need to be adjusted off of the grid you can use quarter tile placement if you have M&G or boolprop snapobjectstogrid false if you don't. If you've never used to build or decorate there's a nice tutorial by TanyaWhan on the exchange you might find useful.
Once you've placed these, have a sim test them to be sure they can be reached and then you can go ahead and use the design tool to make them invisible for a one time fee of $15. If you need them to be visible again and you use the Make All Visible option you won't be charged the $15 fee when you make them invisible again.
You're free to use however you'd like, for whatever you'd like.
To julsfes for allowing me to use her visible/invisible BHAVs from her wonderful SlotBlocker and OMSP Controller. It makes a world of difference when it comes to using these so thanks again. And to my upload mod whose suggestions improved the animations and made this a better upload--much appreciated!
And thanks to the usual suspects as well: SimPE, CEP, Wings3D, Milkshape, GIMP, FRAPS and MTS.
