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.
Here it is, the last of my promised sets. I still have a bunch of add-ons to sneak in and updates/fixes to make, but now you have the majority of everything. Today is also special because it's my 7 year Creator Anniversary! I don't have a special upload for it, but I didn't want to let the day itself go by without mentioning it.

This Family Room set includes a TV unit, a rug, and a bar. Since I'm super tired of being plagued with things that don't work for people they should, I've included a stripped down BG version of these as well as ones that include the EP features. If you have all EPs, get the main download, if you only have BG or are missing some EPs, you'll have to get the BG download and/or do a bit of reading. The TV has FT and AL interactions, the rug is in the Deco > Rug catalog placement (if you only have BG, this didn't exist yet, so you'll find it in Deco > Misc), and the bar as NL/OFB interactions. If you are missing NL, OFB, AL, or FT, you will need to download the BG but you can use them interchangeably, so download both and only install whichever are appropriate for your game.
  • TV - requires FT and AL
  • Rug - requires any EP
  • Bar - requires NL and OFB
  • BG versions available if you can't use the main ones

Now, the TV unit and the bar are both slaved to other pieces, so make sure you grab the masters. The TV unit needs the Living Room End Table, and the bar needs the Kitchen Counter. If your bar handles flash blue, then you have an outdated Kitchen Master and need to redownload it. You will also need to redownload everything that is slaved to it, which are the island, the upper cabinet, and the Bathroom Vanity. Sorry I went and did this to you, but I wanted to include the metal in the dirty states, and there wasn't any other way. It's better now, I promise!






Enjoy!

Additional Credits:
Creds to my Dad for understanding the importance of finishing these up before I switch gears into full time dollhouse production. He has never been a big supporter of my sims hobby (sometimes I let it get in the way of 'real stuff'), so his patience here is greatly appreciated.

Also Creds once again to Lord Darcy and her updater packages. I used the TV one, but just ended up recloning the bar.

These are fantastic! Thanks for modding the sizes of the items. Some of the original furniture is just too large for smaller homes. Glad you're still active!

I apologize in advance if I missed this information but can this bar be used on a community lot? Will it generate a bartender? I downloaded it anyway as it is really wonderful to have a bar that matches the kitchen. Thanks!

I'm fairly certain it should work properly in a community lot. Let me know if you discover otherwise!

Just a quick question: what happened to your Smallhouse Models Office set? Can't seem to download it anymore :/

Hi! I love your Smallhouse Models set, but it seems to have a GUID conflict problem? After installing some cc (including this set) the kitchen counter disappeared, both from the catalogue and lots. SimPE's GUID scanner showed the TV from this set as a duplicate of the counter and disabling it indeed made the counter come back.

Sounds like you are missing the master, it's in another thread.
