Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
These two patches enable the game to recognise cloned booth chairs and sectional sofas as such, provided you have not changed the Proxy GUID values in the OBJD resource (you should never have reason to change these values anyway)

Both are compatible with all games to Apartment Life inclusive, but of course you need an EP that knows about sectionals in order to use a cloned sectional in the first place!

Place the packages in your Downloads folder, as normal.

hacked global BHAV 0x0433 "EP2 - Is Chair a Booth?"

SharedIsSofaASectionalGlobal.zip
hacked global BHAV 0x0478 "EP2 - Is Chair a Sectional Sofa?"

If you are cloning a booth or sectional sofa to share, point your users to this thread to download the patch. It's best not to include it with your object, in case the patch needs updating. Having several versions of it could cause problems.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Nope, I have no idea either If your game runs better without it, leave it out.

Lol - that was one of the default instruction templates Delphy made as an example. I thought I'd simply leave the default as is

Dearest Inge, before I installed the newest patch (downloaded from Simlogical), Blakeboy's Annie modular sofas worked for me but the Apartment Life sofas didn't... Now that I've installed the updated patch - it's the opposite, the Apartment Life sofas combine, but Blakeboy's lovely sofas don't... Since I saw this thread was updated 12 Jan, I will download this patch and let it override to see if it makes a difference... Thanks so much for all you do!! I appreciate you!

EDIT: The blakeboy sectional is working again after installing the patch from this thread! Thanks again!

Finally I realized that this serves to attach the pieces of Annie's Modular Sofa! Fantastic...

I have this mod and your picnic bench. It seems to be working fine on modular sofas, but not on this bench. The game treats it as if it was a decorative table xD
