Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
IKEA is my favorite Stuff Pack, but there are just so many items that are single items, or just missing essential pieces to the set. And what is with the Ektorp and Klippan sets not being full repository? And not even sharing the same colors?

This set contains 11 new meshes that all take there textures from an object in the IKEA SP plus a Repository file for two living sets, the Ektorp and Klippan.

Additional New Meshes - See the first posts in the Comments to download.
  • EXPEDIT
  • GREVSTA
  • KARLSTAD
  • KLIPPAN
  • LACK
  • MALM
  • POANG

This first post contains the Repository fix for the sofas, and additional new meshes are contained in the comments section.

Ektorp - Sofa now repository for Chair and Loveseat
This fix makes the Ektorp Chair and Ektorp Loveseat take there textures from the Ektorp Sofa. If you recolor, you only need to recolor the Ektorp Sofa. Also, any recolors you currently have for the sofa should recolor both the chair and loveseat. This means you can remove any recolors for the chair and loveseat. Lighten the downloads a bit, or allow room for more.





Klippan - Loveseat now repository for Sofa
This also makes the Klippan Sofa take its texture from the Klippan Loveseat. If you recolor the loveseat all the colors will apply to the sofa. Any recolors you have of the loveseat should be available for the sofa. This means you can remove any recolors of the sofa. This does not recolor the heart pillow on the sofa though. (see comments section for a version with the square pillow) The heart deco pillow is not recolorable since it takes its texture from the heart pillow in the decorative section which is not recolorable. I have included UVMaps for this set along with a brightly colored map to show the placement of textures. There is one defect in one of EA's colors, the floral one called skatelovcloth. A large section in the middle was left grey so that is how it is shown on the sofa.



You can place this in your downloads folder, it does not give the * for custom content. Otherwise place in C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\your latest ep\TSData\Res\Catalog\Bins. And if you recolor this set and offer it on your own or any other site, please point downloaders here so that they may also have this fix. At this time this is not included in the CEP, if Numenor at some point in the future adds this, then I will post here when/if it is not needed and remove the file.

This is one file that contains the fix for both the Ektorp and Klippan set. Please see the comments section to get the rest of the new meshes.

Karlstad - Chair now slaved to Sofa
This file is separate from the Ektrorp/Klippan repository fix. This file takes the chair that came with IKEA and slaves it to the Sofa. All custom and IKEA colors will apply to the chair. You only need sofa recolors.



This set requires IKEA!

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

Default ANES Extras
Bed
A single bed to match the ANES double bed. Perfect for teens, young adults, or the adult who likes the feel of a snug fit. Bed is usable with the new quarterTilePlacement cheat that comes with M&G.

Bedside Table
A small bedside table to complement the single or double ANES bed. The table has one slot on the top that is accessible to sims, and one deco slot on the bottom. As you can in the screenshot, it can be placed over the bed. This is done with a combination of the moveObjects on and quarterTilePlacement on cheat. I cannot say if the bed is actually usable with a table there.

Both take there texture from the ANES double bed and are not recolorable (except bedding) since that bed is not.

Default EXPEDIT Extras
One of the really nice sets from IKEA and EA only gives us the TV Center. I really felt this set needed a bit more rounding out and a great opportunity was missed with the simple desk and bookcase.

Desk
The desk is a very simple top and sides, just like the real one. It is designed to match up exactly with the bookcase to appear as though they are attached. Again just like the actual one. This has the standard two slots, all the clutter is done with OMSP's.

Desk - 1-tile
The same as the 2-tile desk but occupying a single tile. The desk has the standard homework/computer slot, plus one additional deco slot off to the back and side.

Bookcase
The bookcase is not your standard bookcase. Instead of placing the standard rows of books like all other EA bookcases, I used the bins and stacks of books from the TV Center to place here. This bookcase also contains 5 additional slots! Each open shelf is an additional decorative slot plus two additional ones on the very top of the bookcase.

There are two version of the bookcase in the zip. One is for FreeTime and the other should be compatible with Uni and OFB. Please don't have keep both since they use the same GUID.

These items all take there texture from the EXPEDIT TV Center, so any recolors of those will apply to these as well.

Updated 31-Oct-09 - Bookcase now has the contents(boxes) recolorable separately from the frame, the same as the TV Center.

Default Grevsta 1 Tile Desk
The Grevsta dining table made into a proper desk, but shrunk to use only a single tile. Perfect for dorms or cramped apartments.

There is the standard slot for the homework or computer, but there is also a small decorative slot added off to the back left. Perfect space to put a lamp or even MogHughson Desk Locator.

Takes its textures from the Grevsta Dining Table

Default KARLSTAD Extras
Loveseat
Whenever a loveseat is missing from a seat, I really wonder why. Chair and loveseat is what I use most, only occasionally using sofas. The loveseat to match the KARLSTAD sofa and chair that should have been included.

Takes all textures from the KARLSTAD sofa.

Default KLIPPAN Extras
Sofa
As requested by amythestfenix, the KLIPPAN sofa without the heart pillow and using the same square pillow as the loveseat. This takes all recolors from the loveseat, both for the sofa fabric as well as the pillows.

Chair
A cute little chair to match the loveseat and sofa, includes the pillow. This chair also takes all textures from the KLIPPAN loveseat.

Default LACK End Table
I found this mesh in the game files, I have no idea why EA decided to not finish it, but I find it to be the cutest little table. It makes a nice set of nested end tables when used with the larger end table.

This takes all textures from the larger LACK end table.

Default MALM Extras
Bedside Table
Bedside table to match the MALM beds. This takes all its textures from the MALM bed. This table has the one slot usable by sims, and has 2 additional slots on the upper shelf.

This does fit one tile completely, and almost gives the illusion of a two tile table. I say almost, cause the corners are rounded. If you use the moveobjects and snapobjectstogrid cheats, you can place directly next to the bed and give the appearance of one piece. This table also works with the new quarterTilePlacement cheat with M&G.

Thanks so much for these! I guess you know how infuriated I get with EA which gives us great items with not a dang thing to match them! Appreciate that I don't have to download excessive custom content by just expanding the EA possibilities! You rock!!

"Completer" sets are always so nice to have. Thank you for making these items so much more usable and completing the set.

Thank you for the slots on the bookcase! Such a nice touch. I assume there are still books in the areas where sims reach for books during animations?

The slot on the 1 tile desk is a very good idea too.
