This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
Assorted placement edits for some of the smaller table lamps plus a fix for the broken dropshadow on the "Return Desklight" (see screenshot #2 for how it looked like, in case you haven't noticed).

Update 2014-12-16: Today's patch makes it so that half of this mod is not necessary any more – please use the bb.moveobjects cheat from now on to place those lamps that won't place otherwise; the dropshadow thing has been fixed in the game files too. Updated with the obsolete edits removed.

Note to builders (2015-01-25): From what FakeHouses|RealAwesome posted here, downloaders still need this mod when you have used it for decorating a lot you upload, otherwise stuff on shelves will disappear. Maybe this will be fixed in some future patch (apparently just using bb.moveobjects has the same issue under some circumstances), we’ll see.


These are overrides for various COBJ and OBJD (edited footprint reference) resources which make it so that the following lamps will now go on

Shelves (and larger):

Return Desklight
The Soothelight (will clip into the wall a tiny little bit, but that's not visible from the front)
Jellyfish Bell Table Lamp
Scallop Table Lamp
Nerves of Steel Desk Lamp
3 Senses Oil Lamp

Side Tables (and larger):

Long John Buttercups Table Lamp
The Sovereign (did so before, but now has a smaller footprint -> more clutterability)


Plus an override for the MLOD group 0x0000000 of the "Return Desklight" that tells the dropshadow to behave itself

Oops, please redownload!

One resource was missing from the package (leading to "Failed Script Call" errors when trying to apply the 1st colour in the list to the Long John Buttercups lamp .. luckily that was exactly the lamp I initially made the fix for, so I just noticed when back in game)

Awesome; thank you! That ridiculous shadow has been keeping me from using a perfectly good lamp, and although I hadn't wanted to put lamps on shelves before, I sure do now!

Finally. If I want to put my table lamps on the floor, I'll put them on the floor, damn it! Really useful. I hate how all the shelves and whatnot have so few clutter slots and no slot for lamps.
Now all we need is more slots on kitchen counters!

You should have been able to put anything on the floor in the out-of-box game already. Also, this has nothing do to with slots, I'm editing the *lamps* here, not shelves or anything else.

Ah, fair enough. Well either way, I can finally put lamps on shelves!

I was only wondering today, after having downloaded your window fix yesterday, whether you would be the person to fix that broken lamp shadow and here you have!
Any chance you could take a look at the broken Simple double door found in the prebuilt gyms?

I'm not interested in that double door myself (I don't use the prebuilt lots and all of my own are kinda rural / traditional right now). But if you want to fix it -- you know how to use s4pe, right? --, if it's a similar issue it would be a wrong reference in one of the MLODs. In the window it was quite easy to see since it was only wrong in one colour .. so if you compare them all you should be able to spot the one that is off. Best post in Create if you have questions!

Bless this mod. So many little things in TS4 that drive me up a wall, it's lovely to find fixes for at least some of them. <3
