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 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

Yes, I have the same problem: if I put a chair next to another, they remain the same, its just "hooked" but they do not lack the armrests! Many chairs nearby nearby ... Even with the "pouf" piece. Why is that? I have all the expansions and virtually no hack. Can someone let me know how to do? Thanks! Annie's Modular System is so useful and beautiful!

Aaaaah, sorry!!! I needed the following patch: http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?p=1393933
that is needed to "hook" the chairs!

I'm so sorry, so stupid... And my english is so poor! Okay, thanks anyway!

I'm silently squealing inside - the modular chair/sofa looks great in game and there are so many recolors here on MTS2. Although Piggi from Piggi Sims is no longer with us, she has a few lovely recolors for Annie's Modular Sofa archived in the graveyard: http://sims2graveyard.com/download.html (Piggi Sims > Furniture > Seats > AnnieModularSofa)

Sorry to be a bother but I just love this and would like to use it properly. I have downloaded the Inge patch and installed it but I can still only use it as a chair, it doesnt go into a sofa. Could anyone offer me advice how to get this to work?

Assuming you have Nightlife EP and the Inge patch installed in your downloads folder (SharedIsSofaASectionalGlobal.package), the sofa should work unless you have another patch that affects modular (connecting) sofas.. I have all EPs/SPs + both global patches from IngeJones and the sofa works perfectly.

Nice! I've always wondered why there weren't modular sofas such as these already in the base game. Pretty innovative feature!

Btw, the link in your post leads to the comments page of Inga Jones' Sofa Mod, not the download page. Just wanted to let you know.

Thanks! Can't wait to see how this looks in-game!
