More Slots 4 EA Furniture

Based on Lord Darcy's More Decorative Slots for Maxis Furniture and cmomoney's bay windows with slots (Not Just Another Bay Window and Gone with the Window), I bring you More Slots for EA Furniture!

Wasted space bugs you? Not anymore, let there be clutter!

This mod will add (more) slots to end tables, coffee tables, bay windows, desks, and other objects such as the china cabinet and the drawer from Ambitions. The latter now works as an end table and can hold functional items such as the Music Box, Fishbowl, etc.

End Tables
Added 5 slots to 4 end tables which have some space to put things on under the table.


Coffee Tables
Added slots to 3 coffee tables which have some space to put things on under the table.


Desks
Added one slot to one desk which have some space to put things on and fixed another desk's slots.


Windows
Added slots to 4 bay windows which have some space to put things on.


Note: Don't forget to download cmomoney's Not Just Another Bay Window with 18 slots and Gone with the Window with 15 slots so you have slots in all windows!

Bookshelves


Other
Added slots to several items which have some space to put things on under the table.



Placement Tips:
The same tips Lord Darcy gave apply for The Sims 3:
  • You must sell and re-buy objects for them to pick up the change.
  • After you place the object on the slot, press m to move objects to the next slot.

Notes:
This mod edits the VPXY and RSLT resources of the objects mentioned above, and will conflict with other mods if they do the same. As it does not modify the _RIG resource, it is compatible with the 1.26 patch version.

It also modifies the OBJD, OBJK and FTPT of the Thor's Drawer for it to work as an end table; if you have a mod that modifies these resources, it'll conflict.

Note that these are not clones of the game objects but modified "default replacements" that add slots to them.

Clutter seen in the screenshots comes from cmomoney's clutter pack and Purplepaws' toy conversions.

Known Issues:
  • 3-tile diagonal windows don't have slots.

Changelog
v1.0 (07/17/10): Initial release.
v1.1 (07/21/10): Added two windows and a bonsai table.
v1.2 (09/03/10): Added the Store's punk rock TV.
v1.3 (10/22/11): Added four bookcases, two coffee tables from the Store, and an end table.

Additional Credits:
  • cmomoney for his windows with slots, for letting me use them as a base for the windows included here and for his tutorial.
  • WesHowe for the MilkShape tools.
  • Lord Darcy for his More Decorative Slots for Maxis Furniture.
  • s3pe and S3OC developers and creators.

WOOOOW. Nice. I always wondered why they put little shelves on the bottoms of end tables and such, but with no slots?? Great job!

Thanks! I've updated the recategorizer.

Redownload recategorized_EP2 please . Both files recategorized the Drawer, now only this one does.

I don't suppose you have them available in separate files too? Would save me having to do it the hard way.

The day before yesterday I found another object that can have slots: it's a bonsai table from World Adventures. I'll update as soon as I find a fix for the diagonal windows.

Yes, I do have them, but why would you need separate files?

Excellent! But is there any chance you could create a file with just the windows? I don't clutter my Sims' homes enough to make use of the tables but the windows are a must.

very useful! I never understood the end tables with lower shelves that were totally non-functioning ...

I have some of the content installed as merged .packages. It would save me a lot of trouble of dividing it up to merge with those separate packages and I like to have things excessively well organised.

Update (July 21st, 2010)

I've added two windows from the Store that I didn't saw the first time and one bonsai table from World Adventures, if you want slots for these items please redownload.

@Anach

I've added a zip that contains separate files.

@Menaceman44

I've included a zip with separate files, download it and remove everyhting but the window files. Then merge them.

Thanks, that made everything much easier, though it took me a bit of time to work out which store items belonged to which set and what were base items, as the file names differ from the object names and unfortunately the store page doesn't tell you which sets individual items belong to.

#18 Old 22nd Jul 2010 at 4:46 AM
This is wonderful thank you! However I'd like to ask you, cmomoney's "Gone with the window" mod, that one I need to get separately, correct? Or did you include a version of that of your own with the files? I just want to make sure I don't get two mod's of the same thing. ^_^ Thanks~

Yes you need to download them separately, they are not included in the package.

OMG, I've always hoped someone would do the same thing as Lord Darcy for the Sims 3 furniture! Cluttery style, here I come! Thank you Sims MX
PS: it's awesome you added the crate TV from the store, store stuff is generally left aside from all the mods ^^
