This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
FOOTPRINT FIXED AND RECOLORS ADDED!! Thanks to Khallayne for fixing the footprint.

This is just one object, but I couldn't wait to share it with you all. It's a closet! Not a dresser, a closet (that works like a dresser). If you are a fan of making homes that are realistic and you have tons of closets that are housing a dresser or are just wasted space, here's the item for you. The clothingrack is one tile deep and one tile wide. The original Maxis "Anti-Quaint-Ed" Ltd. Ed. Armoire and the original Maxis OakTowne Simple Interior Door was used to create this mesh. This matches my 2 tile built-in closet that can be found in this thread...http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=186666

The base mesh is in white. Feel free to recolor and distribute as long as you give me credit and link back to my page for the mesh (since it's free). (www.simplysimilicious.com/Sims2/S2Misc.html)

YOU MUST USE THE MOVE_OBJECTS ON CHEAT TO PLACE THIS CLOSET IN THE SLOT. (This was made using Maxis TS2 objects, but some have reported not being able to use it without OFB installed)

Credits to Quaxi for SimPE, RGiles and Numenor for CEP, Miche and Delphy for the MeshTool.

I'd also like to thank Mage at Simmage for helping me get the animations working correctly.

They're really nice, thank you!


The single didn't show up for me either when I had nightlife. After I installed OFB recently, it was fine. One thing though, the single still takes up the same space as the double, and even if you use move_objects on and then build a wall to make it appear a single door to the closet you get a sim doing that funky-monkey tantrum because they can't get the door open. Am I doing something wrong when I place this object perhaps? Can live with it though, loving the double closet. Just wish I could hide a sim in there, lol. Thanks.

hey there, im having trouble obtaining the mesh, the site you provided says you need to setup an account/login. I have signed up but i haven't recieved an confirmation email for registering the account to have it activated, meaning i can;t login so i can't even obtain the mesh. Is there anyway arround this? or maybe could someone pls send me the mesh at [email protected]se help, i really want to use this to complete furnishing on one of jonesi's houses.

I'm so glad that you created this. Thank you. I have a couple of questions though. I seem to be having some problems getting it to function. I use the move objects cheat as you said and it sits beautifully, but my Sims always complain about a wall being in the way when I try to get them to use it. Usually it happens when I have the second tile (the invisible portion) hang over the edge of an outter wall, creating a corner closet. Could the over-hang be the problem? I'm trying to use this in my homes, and it would be too perfect if I could get it to work. Thanks, 2Kegs
P.S. I'm still a test dummy, but I was wondering: Single-tile dressers work fine where I'm trying to place the closet. If the base object were a single tile dresser, do you think it would work any better?

I too was thrilled with the two-tiled one, and use it a lot. But, this one is perfect for those 'older' homes with small single door closets. :o)

I absolutely agree with you, Timmy. I was going to request the same built-in closet but cloned from a one-tile maxis dresser in order to be able to put it in one tile slots and not having to leave the tile beside free...

I am also running just the base game and neither of your closets are showing up. They look great, though!
