This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Compatible with 1.38 up to 1.67


As requested, I added a feature to buy gems/metals in quantity. Sorry it took me months to implement this, I was kinda busy Translations are still welcome.


This is a small chest to make life easier for all you RGM collectors out there When you buy it from the catalog, it'd come with a few random rocks/gems/metals stocked in its inventory (you can now turn off this feature in the tuning xml). Note that for these randomly generated RGM, you'll have to take them out and collect them before you can send them to be smelt/cut since they're not set as collected.

With this object, you can buy gems and metals (prices are now tunable too):

Single piece:
Gem
-Large : §850
-Regular : §500
-Uncut : §350
-Random : §750

Metal
-Large : §850
-Regular : §500
-Unsmelted/Ore : §350
-Random : §750

Gem Set
-Large : §10,000
-Regular : §5,000

Complete Set:
Gem
-Large : §500,000
-Regular : §200,000
-Uncut : §20,000

Metal
-Large : §100,000
-Regular : §15,000
-Unsmelted/Ore : §10,000

All gems and metals are available regardless of required location, provided you have the required EPs installed.


Available in Decorative/Misc for §500.





Available gem cuts:
-Emerald Cut
-Oval Cut
-Pear Cut
-Plumbbob Cut
-Marquis Cut
-Crystal Ball Cut
-Brilliant Cut
-Heart-Shaped Cut
-Polished Split Cut
-Star Cut
-Spire Cut
-Skull Cut
-Sculptor's Egg Cut
-Gem Dust Cut
-Sun Cut
-Moon Cut
-Uncut


Compatibility: 1.38 and up.

Also, I read some comments saying that if you buy a complete set only to sell them back for a profit, it takes so long to sell them all since you have to sell them one by one. Therefore I made this mod to aid it


Merry Christmas!

Lovely An odd request, could you maybe also add one without the 'cheating' options? Just a box in which you can put your collections?
Test Subject
#5 Old 24th Dec 2009 at 5:17 PM
Wow, this is Godlike. My old Save file got corrupted and it took forever for me to get all of those damn Gems and collectibles. This will make it a hell of a lot easier to get back to where I was. Thanks man.

Thanks so much

(By the way, you said your not sure if it works on just the base I game, I've got the latest pactched base game and it works fine)
Thanks again, also could you make it so you can put it in your inventory and so you can drag gems, metals etc into it rather than pressing open and puting them in.

Computers and Air conditioners are simerlar. Both are highly reliable and work amazingly well.....just until you open up windows!

I have WA 2.2.8 and everything is working fine, see if you have a mod conflict.

If you're having problems, make sure you have d3dx9_31.dll in the right place. Read this for more info. In buy mode, it's under Decorations/MiscDecor. Have a very Merry Christmas!

Great object! Thank you for sharing.

I've noticed one thing, and just wanted to make you aware of it - if I get unsmelted metals from it, there is no interaction on the item in my sim's storage that will let me smelt it in the future. Same with uncut gems. Not sure if it's a mod conflict (I don't think I have any that would conflict with this one) or if it's a known issue, just wanted to make you aware.

I downloaded that file and placed it into the Bin folder, but it still isn't appearing. Also, I don't have any patches, so could that be a problem?

This doesn't happen in my game... It shouldn't conflict with anything unless you have some mods that alter RGM codes but that's unlikely. How did you get those uncut gems? If you got it from "get gem/cut/[size]/[gemname]/[cutname]/uncut" then it's not a "true" uncut gem as it's regarded as one of the cut style by the game. You can get a real uncut gem from "get gem/uncut."

Does other CC work? Do you have resource.cfg and mods folder in the right place? Other than that, I'm not sure. What is your game version?

You should copy the "Mods" directory, "Bin" directory is not!

Even better, read the following article: "Installing Sims 3 Package Files"

Collectively thank you for this and all other your creativeness, @treeag

Allah (c.c.) give you more clarity of mind to get the work.

Regarding the problem of no interaction available, I read in another thread (Gnowor's cursed well discussion thread), and Pescado seemed to think it's framework fail. So, make sure you have it in the right dir.

I think he meant Allah, his God, and (c_c) as a face

GREAT UPLOAD, once again! Kudos to you!

I meant I placed the d3dx9_31.dll file in the Bin folder. The file for the chest is already in the Mods/Packages folder. The clothing files I've placed work, but not the mods/objects.
Test Subject
#24 Old 26th Dec 2009 at 4:07 AM
It's still not working...
I've replaced the Resource file in the Program Files/ Electronic Arts/The Sims 3 folder again, but still no result...
Well, thank you all for the help anyway.

Allah (God) is the name used in an "c.c. (Celle Celalühü)" (Arabic as an original reading of the sentence in Latin.), "God is saints and exalted" to the meaning of the phrase.
