UPDATE 8-11-2015: Added a file for the resort Arch from the Island Paradise EP. The same edits of the GEN Arches apply to this one too now. It is the archive "HarVee_IP_ResortWeddingArchEdit.rar". The other archive is for the three Generations EP Arches.

Hello MTS! Ever notice how those Wedding Arches can't be placed on top of platforms without the usage of the moveObjects cheat? Ever get confused trying to find them in a catalog category that would seem a logical place, only to find they're actually listed under Deco despite not actually being piece of Deco? Well this mod strives to correct these issues.

This mod edits the OBJD resources related to said Wedding Arches to achieve the following:
  • All Arches have had their prices increased. They all now cost 250 Simoleans, instead of the GEN defaults of 100, and the IP default of 160.

  • All Arches are now located in Entertainment > Parties section of the function sort, where as by EA default they were listed under Deco > Misc.

  • All Arches can now be placed on platforms without the usage of any cheats.

  • All Arches will now stay on a lot, even after a household gets evicted.

Mod Compatibility & Notes:
  1. The mod was created with patch 1.63 installed, but as long as the Generations and/or the Island Paradise EP is installed and no other mods that edit these resources are used in combination with this, then the mod should be compatible with any game configuration. This should also work with lower patch levels too because never has a patch edited these OBJD resources.

  2. The Generations heart-shaped arch, and the IP Resort Arches are rather tall in design, and due to this these two Arches will give a "ceiling is too low" message if there are floor tiles on the floor level above the platform prior to Arch placement. This issue is not a problem with this mod, it is a limitation in the game, and the only way around this without using cheats is to first place the Arch on the platform, then lay down floor tiles above it. This issue does not effect the other two smaller arches that both came with the GEN EP.

Nice! These are really helpful. Arches are in Deco->Misc and Outdoor Activities, neither of which makes a ton of sense. Sorting through Deco Misc for them is such a pain.

The only thing I'd wish for now is the ability to recolor the flowers. Sheesh.

BTW: There is also a wedding arch in Island Paradise. Also a couple of store ones, though you might not have that DLC.

Wasn't aware there was one in the IP expansion. If this one ever gets around to it, he'll edit that one too and upload a separate archive for it.

Done. Thread updated to reflect this.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! I don't have a lot of wedding parties in my games but when I do, I NEVER find those blasted things! Which leads me to.....you guessed it...often not having one again. And I thought it was something I did wrong for not being able to put them on a platform.

Need help ! I know this mod is a bit old but I can't seem to get it to work... It doesn't works, when I put the package in its slot I can't even see my arches anymore, they disappear from the game (I checked EVERYWHERE ). Help me, I would really love to use this mod!

Just wanted to confirm that it does seem like this mod is the cause of my missing wedding arches! I've been doing some organizing and finally decided to figure out how come I can't see arches that are supposed to be from Generations. I forgot I had this.

May I ask what patch level and EP/SP configuration you two are using? I've never had a problem with the mod myself but I'd like to track down the issue at hand so any info would be appreciated.

Edit to add; This mod should be put in your overrides folder. If it isn't in your overrides folder it may not work as intended.

I have all EP, my version is 1.67. I tried to make it in Package, then in Overrides, but each time it didn't work...

Thanks in advance for your help ! (Sorry for my bad English )
