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.

Hi, everyone! I'm back! And I've been busy.

Over the last few months, I've been feeling especially creative and whipped up fifty new files. So, over the next week or two, I'll be bombarding you all with six various projects, the first of which is my first custom mesh.

I got tired of trying to find the perfect standard, basic office chair for my sims' homes, so I decided to make one myself. The mesh was constructed from Maxis chair parts (though heavily modified), and the texture (which comes in blue, red, purple, green, and black) was made from real chair fabric.

Catalog Description: "Long gone are the days when work had to be done while standing up. So sit down with an OfficeChamp task chair and discover what your keister's been missing. With deluxe padded cushions and a swivel-action base, this chair will help reduce wear and tear on your feet and allow you to focus on more important things, like project proposals. Or video games.

Price: $185



Recolors are welcome, but please only on MTS2. You may upload any of my creations in lots, Sims2Pack files, etc. as long as credit is given.

Well, that's it! Enjoy and stay tuned over the next several days to see the rest of my creations. And as always, feel free to leave comments. It really makes it worth my while!

Great job, great idea. Much needed. Thank you and well done. Will there be any more colours at a later stage? Like light brown or golden?
#7 Old 26th Oct 2008 at 1:57 AM
Very nice job. I look forward to recolours. Maybe some that look like leather. *hint hint*

No, probably not. I've already spent waaay too much time on this chair as it is, so I would really have to push myself to do any more recolors right now. Feel free to do some yourself, though!

After Maxis came out with eight (!) expansion packs and any number of "Stuff" packs, there is finally a proper office chair - done by a 3rd party creator --- You!!!

Thank you!

Yes! Finaly, some classic office chairs. Sims 2 never had one itself, so I have to say congratulations!

It looks perfect. What comfort score does it have?
