Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This mod places 172 EA objects in the World Editor, for use on the world lot. The World Editor is reached through Edit Town, the WE button, where new lots, trees, etc. can be placed. There are 11 new items in Rocks, the rest are Landmarks. (All of the EA items originally in the World Editor are still in place.)

Mod uses only the OBJD on each object, this is a default replacement or override on these OBJD resources, the remaining resources needed for an object are not included. Therefor, if you are going to use, for example, the Late Night objects, you need to have Late Night installed; same goes for the other EP's.

A view towards the Sunset Valley lighthouse shows some of the items in this mod:



Most items are also placed in Buy Debug under Misc., for placement on lots. Exceptions are items which are too large, or mouse cursor weirdness making them impossible to place. Some of the outdoor lights and the fountains are already available in normal Buy Mode, so these are not duplicated in Buy Debug here.

Objects are sorted such that five pieces of the same type of fence are grouped together, the same type of billboard signs are grouped together, etc. Standalone items are generally at the bottom, but not every standalone has been sorted, in which case they are mixed together with the original objects.

Following is a list of the objects included:
Base Game:

FenceChainLinkUrban- 5 pieces
MilitaryGuardTower

A new file, WEMoreObjectsBasegame134, adds 30 more items into the World Editor. The objects here are not included in the original Basegame or All In One mods, so use this new one together with the others you are using. OBJD's used here are:

This mod is split into 5 different .package files, one for base game and one for each of the EP's. As an example, if you have Base Game, World Adventures, and Ambitions but do not have the other EP's, install the Basegame, WA, and AMB files, and forget the other 2. There is also a file titled All In One, which is all of the OBJD's in one .package file, so if you have all the EP's this file can be used instead. Do not use this All In One file together with any of the others, obviously.

There is nothing from Generations or the stuff packs here, as there were no objects in these which could be used that I've found. I have the number 1.29 on my files, which is the current patch level. This is intended as a time stamp meaning: This mod was made around the time of the 1.29 game. So users will know when this mod is from, if looking through all their old downloaded stuff two years from now. I'm sure this mod will work fine with the 1.26 game, or earlier game versions, as long as one has the World Editor functionality (and applicable EP's).

Other mods which may alter the OBJD, as a default replacement override, on any of the objects listed above cannot be used at the same time as this mod.

CAUTIONARY NOTE: Concerning the bridges; once placed on the World Lot, the hand tool refuses to pick them up again, so they are stuck where you've placed them. So don't place them from the World Editor unless you mean it. They also don't function as "real" bridges, sims can't walk on them or 'teleport me here' onto them. They were simply intended as some weird deco. The two bridges in BuyDebug can be picked up again and re-placed or deleted when using these on community or residential lots. Thanks to Scarity for pointing out this bridge placement problem.

A new file is added with objects from Showtime; this EP is required to use this new mod. The All In One file has not been altered, the Showtime objects are not in that file. All objects are in Landmarks in the editor, and are in Buydebug unless they were already in normal Build/Buy mode. The gates can be used together with the fencing in the earlier mods, but the gates won't actually open or close. Sims can still walk through the gates though. OBJD's used are:

BillboardDouble, BillboardDouble1, BillboardDouble2, BillboardDouble3, BillboardDouble4, BillboardDouble5, BillboardDouble6
BillboardSingle, BillboardSingle1, BillboardSingle2, BillboardSingle3, BillboardSingle4, BillboardSingle5, BillboardSingle6, BillboardSingle7, BillboardSingle8, BillboardSingle9

A new mod places 21 objects from Supernatural in the World Editor, and also in BuyDebug Misc. if they are not available by default. The signs, trees and column are in build/buy already, so these are not duplicated in BuyDebug.

This mod uses only the OBJD on each item, so Supernatural must be installed to use this mod. OBJD's used are:

Yes, when objects are placed they are saved into that save game, so it's possible to remove the mod and these objects will still be there.

I'm very happy to see this, thank you! I made a world recently, and wished for the ability to place CAW rocks via the world editor. I created a "fairy ring" lot in the center of my island. Around the fairy ring is water (like a moat, almost) and I wanted the larger rocks around the water, closing it all in. Since those larger rocks aren't available in the world editor, I had to place them via CAW, then go to edit-in-game and world editor to place the lot over them, then make my bridges and decorating...it was really a pain to get the rocks lined up just right. To make matters worse, when I started playing my world, I realized that sims will walk right through in CAW items on the lot!

I can't rotate any of these. When I move them nothing happens. If i use < and > it only moves them a certain amount, I cant aim them the way I want them to go. This makes it impossible to use some of them, do you know why? Also some I can't pick up after I place them meaning I have to reload.

Also some can't go on lots or roads that should, like the butterfly house (it is on a lot in bridgeport) and the street lights and signs.

Scarity: I rotate them by using the comma and period keys, but these may be differently placed on different keyboard settings. It works fine for me. The way my items work is no different for me than the default stuff which EA placed there in the World Editor.

The placing on roads or sidewalks isn't possible, this is the way it is with the default stuff too, they won't go on the road or sidewalk, there's nothing I can do about it.
The butterfly dome by default is in the Community items in normal Build/Buy mode, so I didn't place it here in BuyDebug.

About items which you can't pick up again after placing them: Are these things you are dumping in the ocean, so they are underwater? I've never been able to grab stuff when it's buried underwater, but this is normal for the World Editor it appears to me. If it is items you are placing on land, which ones are these? I don't recall having an issue with picking everything up again.

< and > ARE . and ,

they only rotate 45 degrees, not 360. That is what I am saying. They wont rotate with the mouse, so they are really impossible to place on things.

I placed the flat wooden bridge on the ground and i couldnt pick it up again and lost all my additions from reload.

Okay, the bridges cannot be picked up again as you say. This is clear. I can pick up the two bridges in buydebug though, when using these on normal lots. If I saw this bridge issue earlier when first starting this mod, I was probably fooled by the fact that the two bridges could be placed and picked up again fine in buydebug, so I determined that they were OK.

I placed a cautionary note in the mod description concerning this issue.

The 360 rotation using the mouse button seems to work fine for me, at least on normal smaller objects; not necessarily on these bridges though.
