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.

Can you tell?? I love the Maxis 2 Tile Talking Table, one thing wrong with it, there was only one size.

So I made 3 more.

One tile square, one tile round, and a 3 tile long. Then because there was a little problem on the original mesh, what can I say, it bugged me at least. The skirt, the part of the frame that supports the table top looked to short to me, so I redid the original too.

The tables are linked to the Maxis table so they will all use the Maxis original colors and any recolors made for it. For this reason the new meshes are not recolorable unless you recolor the Maxis original. I did a recolor of the table and matching chair in a yellow that I call Maise (Maize) because I needed one for a kitchen I was making so I included it here for you.

And because I like tablecloths I made a set to fit all the tables with recolors and they also fit most any other table too.

I used only base game objects to create them and had SimPE set to base game so hopefully they will be compatible with any game version.

UPDATE 12/12 -- Made a couple of changes in the files after testing in a base game. They are now definately base game compatible.

All tables have about the same poly and vert counts as the Maxis original, I only reshaped them.

The tablecloths --
1x1 - 800 poly, 585 vert
1x1 round - 1440 poly, 930 vert
1x2 - 1400 poly, 1046 vert
1x3 - 1862 poly, 1400 vert

As always, my rules for my meshes --

Free to recolor and post for download as you wish, as long as the mesh itself remains a FREE download. You are welcome to use it on any lots you post for download as well. Please do not take and post as your own, even though it's not much, it is my work,

Enjoy, Kat

Oh these are just awesome. My friend asked for a yellow recolour and I thought that would be great, and here it was not to mention the beautiful round and longer table, I play big families this 3 tile table is a must! Then the table clothes. Just the icing on the cake!

Hi CTNutmegger
I just found these tables while I was looking for tablecloths to recolor...I am so glad you had made different ones and I just love your tablecloths..
But I am having a bit of a problem with the 1x3 and 1x2...the other two are came out perfect and I was wondering if you can help me figure out what is going on with the first 2 I mentioned
Here is a pictures of them..
See how the ends are making seams but not the other 2..and the sides came out great as well..not showing any seams





Thank you for your help in advance..

EDIT: Well I found out it is the fabric...I tried 2 others..one with a little bit of lines and a plain one..and the plain one worked...so that means I will have to find fabric that will go with those 2 tables..sorry for posting this...
Thank you for your amazing cc and creativity..

I agree, why did they make this in only one size?! Thank you for picking up EA's slack
