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.

Maxis "Lost & Found" #23
SOUVENIR CABINET

UPDATED and FIXED 18 JUNE 2006 - Please REDOWNLOAD




18 June 2006 - BUGFIX: when selecting the cabinet from the Buy Mode catalog, two additional icons (with white texture) were displayed, in addition to the normal two ones. Please redownload (the fixed version will overwrite the older one). All existing recolours made by other users will still work fine.

18 June 2006 - UPDATE: I told you, I'm not very good at creating textures Therefore MaryLou created for us two much better looking default textures, with proper 3D effects and shadows: they are now included in the cabinet package and replaced the older one. Another good reason to redownload!

------------------------------------------------
(Original post)

Thanks to shakeshaft for having found this mesh into the base game files.
Quite an interesting mesh indeed! As usual, many part of the object were missing, including the textures. I've rebuilt the missing parts and created a working package, and I've also created two brand new textures to go with the Cabinet mesh.
Therefore, if you like the mesh, thank Maxis; if you dislike the two textures, blame me!
By the way, why two textures? Because Maxis left in the packages two Material Overrides, proving that the Cabinet was originally intended to have two alternative colours. My idea of the "Lost & Found" is to save everything Maxis left behind, adding the minimum elements required for the object to work...

The object has its own GUID (graciously provided by Maxis itself ), is recolourable, and works in any game configuration, including the bare base game.

It's a purely decorative object: you can't put anything in it. You'll find it in:
Buy Mode -> Decorative -> Misc.

PS: if you are wondering where to download the lamp shown in the screenshots, well, it isn't available for download... yet! Keep your eyes open!

Thanks shakes and Num!! Waggles in answer to your question - they had to leave out the stylish, desireable meshes so they could leave in the hideous ones that match their equally disgusting wallpapers and carpets of course!!

Maybe they were trying to work on a vacation ep but then left it, I remember in the sims I had 10 cabinets per household because I loved to take them on vacation!

Fantastic! I love the way you guys dig through the game looking for buried treasures - you are brilliant! Thank you.

Loverat: the Maxis designers seem to have no concept of style - or taste! If I had to live with their colour schemes I would probably cut my own throat - and the mess could only improve things!

Man, that's nice. And I like your textures. Thanks for putting it together for us... I was wanting something like this recently, actually. I'll get some good use out of it.
