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.

UPDATED 22 Nov 2007

Ive updated a bad wallshadow and the recolours, so please redownload the meshes and recolours and replace the old files with these new ones in your downloads folder please!




Ive always wanted to make another modular sofa, because I thought my first sofa was a real mess. Well, with a bit of spare time, I've gotten around to making them.
These sofas are pretty much far from perfect, but I reckon theyre a mark improvement from the first one. Want to mention that I went through a rough patch with my gf recently, we decided to make this set as a team, and corny as it sounds, it made us closer than ever.
So, I want everyone to know that my georgie did the texturing of the sofas and I couldnt have been danm prouder of her.

Ok, enough with reallife blogging, and on to the sofas, hehe. There are basically 3 different meshes in this set, theyre shown below:


You can use these sofas to create different modular shapes, as shown on my pictures and lots more shapes you can think up of. I used the repository technique, thanks to Jwoods and his tute/ modding infocentre, which prooved extremely useful here.

Important Notes:

- You'll need to download the main mesh, (with the cushions) in order for the other 2 to work with their textures.

- These are modular sofas which will join up when put next to each other. You'll need Inge's sectionalsofa patch in your downloads folder from here:http://forums.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?p=1393933
Unfortunately, if you have Shaklin's sectionalsofa patch, you'll have to remove that from your downloads folder in order for these to work

- The beauty of these sofas is that I've made an overlay of the shadows on the texture, so it makes recolouring childs play. You can simply wack on your flat fabric or wood or texture of choice, and the shadows mesh does all the hard work for you and will make the sofas look good in game. Ive attached the uvmapping if anyone's interested in recolouring.

- If you want to recolour the sofas, you just need to recolour the main mesh, (with the cushions)

- Much improved (less) poly counts from my first sofa.

- I think youll need Nightlife for these sofas to work correctly

- These sofas do not have wall shadows on them, I had a problem with them and just couldn't get them to work

- The design tool does not work on the ottoman and sofa without cushions when theyre joined up. Not sure how to fix that

- These sofas are listed in the catalog under Comfort > sofas


On to the screenies:





Thats it, hope you enjoy the sofas and have fun experimenting with the different modular shapes.
and thanks again mts2 for being such an awesome place to be in

Polygon Counts:
Main mesh:
Highest poly faces - 1342
Average poly faces - 1100

No cushion:
Highest poly faces - 1342
Average poly faces - 1000

Ottoman (no arm, no back):
Highest poly faces - 698
Average poly faces - 630

They are really nice! And all these recolours... ^^

The only thing to be perfect it was that they have cushions in the corners. But I cannot complain

Thank you for your GREAT work.

They're really gorgeous and I couldn't wait to download them! But when I did and I bought one to make a sofa, they didn't join properly? The armrests didn't disappear, they just kind of sit there really closely like two side-by-side arm chairs.
How can I fix it??
#285 Old 18th May 2010 at 2:23 PM

hi, although this is a wonderfull set, please everybody be warned, when you download that patch and put it in your download folder, it may mess up your game. It doesn't do that much damage, but when you want to run a home-business and you want to hire people, these people won't show up, may be because of this patch. Other than that, very nice set

Modular freedom allows such degrees of freedom. I love it!

Not only is it modular, it's so normal looking it's the chair I need in many of the houses I build. Now if only I could find some modular victorian or colonial style furniture, is that possible to make modular? I'm not really familiar with furniture styles.

That's really awesome. The ultimate sofa in my opinion. I like modern styled furniture a lot and there are so many ways to create new seating with this set regarding on shape and colour. This one is the best (modular) sofa I've ever seen for Sims 2, honestly.
