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.

A few months ago I visited my aunt's new house and fell in love with her interior decor. One thing that really made me go "wow!" was a high-top table in her breakfast nook. I fell in love with the look that the table gave the room and wanted to duplicate it for my sims. When Late Night brought in the bar and club elements into the game, I was surprised that they only offered one ugly high-top table. So, I sampled a few of my favorite regular dining tables from EA and converted them into high-tops.

There are five tables altogether, two solid tables and three glass ones. All tables were cloned from the original EA high-top table to ensure that they have the proper animations and slots. They've all been remapped pretty nicely. The only one that is dodgy is the "Wooden Ranch" table. The support at the bottom is a tad bit off. The original table had four channels and the support was on its own channel, but for this project I was limited to only three channels, so I had to combine it with the legs. However, over all I think it's passable since I assume most would apply metal or wooden patterns there anyways.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

These are great Wifey. Are you sure they need Late Night, and not just the patch level? It's normally that way. Regardless its awesome

Well husband, darling, if the high-top table was introduced in LN then you would need it? Especially since it has the "dance on top" slot.

But I don't know. The game flagged it as LN so I went with it.

That's just one of the drawbacks to using TSRW. Object building is just SO much easier with it though.

Awesome! EA did not provide us enough of these high-top tables that go with the bar stools. I believe the only ones they gave us were the wooden one that came with Late Night and the metal one that came with Fast Lane. I love that they're Maxis match too! Thank you!

BTW, I think they only need the patch since they included one with Fast Lane. Kind of like the hot tubs.

Ok, I see I'm the very first person having an issue here. It happens that I put the chairs in my lots, and everything is fine, but when I attempt to add chairs to it, they wont stick, and the green box goes red, so I'm not able to place it at all. Also when tried placing stuff over it, happenned the same. So, the tables are there, but they are merely decorative.

I have all EP up to generations, and base game patched to 1.36. Do you think you could give it a look?

Thanks in advance!

In a word: Yay!!! I, too found the lack of high-topped tables annoying. These look amazing, and definitely go on the list for my dream-home build. I'll report back if I have the same issue Mornath is.
