This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Updated for Patch 1.26 / Pets EP Will work with pre-pets patches as well.

Newshoes has created a tipsy add-on for the OMSP that is available in the thread Tipsy OMSP A great add-on to allow objects to lay over on their sides when placed on the OMSP. Very Cool Stuff(tm)!

Have you ever wanted to place an object somewhere in your house, and just couldn't make it fit?

What you need is an OMSP -- A One More Slot Package object


This allows you to place objects on the OMSP during buy mode. Then when you switch to play mode, the OMSP becomes invisible.

It appears in the Surfaces --> Misc.


To use the object, place it on the floor. It will appear as a red/white checkered object. Next, move it up/down using the menus.


To activate the menu hold Shift + Ctrl and Click on the object.

Next place the object of your choice on top of the OMSP. It helps to move the camera to where you are looking nearly straight down at the floor.

Now, you can move and rotate the OMSP to place the object where you want it to appear. Holding ALT down while dragging or rotating allows you to move it off of the grid.

Update Information
20 Dec 2010 -- Added non-English string tables
21 Dec 2010 -- Fixed corrupted strings
23 Jan 2011 -- Added French and German Translations

Note to translators.... This Mod uses fairly simple text entries. If you wish to contribute a translation, please feel free to PM me.

WARNING
There are several potential issues with this object.
1) Currently it cannot detect if you try to move it below the floor, or above the ceiling! If you do so, it will disappear from sight.
2) Large Kitchen appliances do not work on the OMSP. They fall back to floor level as soon as you place them.
3) Placing a SIM on the OMSP works, but DO NOT allow them to step off. They will fall off the world and you will have to teleport them back.
4) It may be necessary to turn the MoveObjects cheat to On to place some items.

Conflict Information
This is a totally new object. It should co-exist with any other custom content.

Policy Information
This object was created by granthes for the community.
Feel free to include it in any lots that you upload.
There really isn't any reason to recolor the object, since it is invisible in play mode.
Please don't claim this as your own creation, give credit back where it belongs.

Polygon Counts:
Vertices = 68, Polygons = 29

Thanks to Jynx for help with the mesh.
