Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
With the Late Night patch, we got the opportunity to shift things up and down the walls. It made things much more versatile and allowed us to use things in different ways. However, EA, in all their infinite wisdom, forgot to patch in older items. As expansions have been released, they've also forgotten to add the functionality to some new items as well. So I am here to fix it up for you! What I've included are items from every expansion pack up to Seasons. Everything is in one convenient download but organized in folders by each expansion, as well as base game so you can pick piece meal what it is you need for your game.

Also included are 2 items unlocked from their lonely pits of despair: the Fire Truck from Ambitions is unlocked and now located in Miscellaneous BuyDebug. Also, the pretty flower painting from Seasons had 2 other stencils, 1 a bird, and 1 a butterfly, that EA forgot to enable so I did that too.

These are all default replacements to keep your catalogs a little more organized and will be found in the original places.



They are only overrides so you MUST have the expansion they came from to use them. If you attempt to place items in your game that belong to an expansion you do not have, I will not be held responsible for any booms, bangs, black holes, or broken saves.

It was brought to my attention by Menaceman44 that shifting mirrors also shifts sims who use them. I recommend small shifts if using a mirror sims will be using to raise charisma (or whatever else they do with the mirror). If you use it strictly for decor, as I do, you shouldn't need to worry about this.

Hi! I love that you did this, but do you think it's possible to put all of the files in a single package file? For those of us that have the BG and all of the EPs needed.

Sure it's possible. Am I gonna do it? No. I made it as simple as possible by making one downloadable file. If you ever want to do an AGS game, you can separate. If you want things merged, it's very, very simple with S3PE. The way I've done it allows for the most use for everyone without duplicating files.

It's probably worth noting that when mirrors are made shiftable they affect Sims as well. If you raise a mirror then Sims will float when they interact with it. I'm not sure if they sink through the floor when lowering them though.

Alright, sorry. I didn't mean to come off in a negative manner. I just dislike clogging up my Packages folder but I'll look into merging the files.

Ah! Good to make mention of! I tested this to make sure they were working and defaults but didn't test with sims directly. I normally only put a mirror to use for charisma in the bathroom above the sink. The rest I use for making things look nice (above couches, in hallways, above desks with a chair to look like a vanity, etc) so my sims don't actually use any of those. I will make note of it.

Not negative. I understand it was a suggestion. Just explaining why I wouldn't do it. It really only takes a few moments to do it with S3PE so once you know, you'll be merging things left and right!

Great! I had always, always wanted to move a mirror up and down the wall. I can't believe no one ever thought of that before!

Thanks for this. I am having trouble figuring out how to shift curtains though. The mirrors and pics work fine, but I was really excited to move curtains and I can't seem to do it for the life of me. I installed all files into my packages folder, should I have handled some files differently? Thanks for any guidance on this.
Inconceivable!

Hey heaven, I wasn't sure if you were aware, but the Supernatural and Seasons curtains won't place on top of windows without the moveobjects cheat enabled. I looked into it tonight, and you need to set the "IntersectsObjectsOffWalls" flag to false in S3PE (under the WallPlacementFlags section in the OBJD's grid). I don't believe you'd need to do anything else to fix it, as I tested it in game and the curtains work fine now. It's not a big deal or whatever, as they do place over windows with moveobjects on, but I just thought you might like to know.

Thanks again for the awesome shiftables! I really appreciate all the work you put into it.

Silly EA. I swear, they forget half of what they are supposed to be doing when they do it. It's like they started to enable it for shifting but forgot one click. Which I fixed. Apparently, instead of forgetting, they ticked something else. I can get that fixed up pretty quickly in the next day or so. Thanks for the report.
