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.

Hey everyone.

Today I am uploading 2 new OMSP's, Ariffrazalin first had the idea. For you's that dont have the other types, make sure you also get, Ariff's. HERE . In any of his OMSP thread's, you'll find instructions on how to place objects, some of those techniques can be applied to sims also. But for sims, you need to do a few different things to make them place correctly, Read HystericalParoxysm's tutorial on it, HERE.

Anyway, for the counter one, it wont work like a counter, only like a coffee table, same with the bed one, I made it like this, so sims wouldn't just start preparing food on it or try eating something on it. Each OMSP's mesh, will be slightly higher than the actual slot, i did this because sometimes you may not be able to see the bottom, so you have to select the top. I have included an invisible recolour for both so you can hide them. If you have any questions feel free to ask them.

Both:

Thanks to HystericalParoxysm, for letting me use some of her pics and for the idea.

NOTE: These do not require Ariff's OMSP, they are seperate objects.

I've wanted the counter packages for so long! Woot!
The bed packages seem cool, too... I'm sure they'll get just as much use. Like for all of those little pillows that people make.
Thanks for making these additions to the collection. :D

I hate to ask an irritating question, though, but... how did you get that model Sim to sit on the countertop? Is it an invisible chair that roughly matches the counter's height? Do Sims get the option to sit on a countertop (or coffeetable, since that's what these are cloned off of) in one EP or another? The curiosity would have killed me by now, if I were a cat.

I love those "One more slot package", can't build a set without them. And only a week ago was I hoping for a bed one. So thank you so much! Clutter, here I come.

Would I dare ask if you are planning to do more? Like couch and car seats, maybe?

This is so great!
I can't use Ariffrazalin's OMSP because I don't have Uni, but I'm really grateful for being able to use these in my kitchens. I always had a problem with empty counter tops! Mine are always so cluttered!
Thank you so very much!

Mirablu, as I stated in the thread, if you follow HystericalParoxysm's tutorial, you can do it. Even though that was for beds, it can be applied to counters also. And no, sims do not get the option to sit on the countertop in any expansion.

Dektora, couchs would be pretty easy, I may make them. But there is a big difference with cars. They would be *only* for pictures, because the objects would not move with the car, so each time the sim drives out, the objects would stay in the air.

I also have a problem in letting a sim sitting on top of the counter.

I can make a sim sat cross legs on the counter, but I can't make her sit on the counter like you did in your picture.

Whenever I tried to make a sitting-down sim sit on down of the Magisplay tray, the sim ended up flowing on top of the tray. So, even if I put the Magisplay tray with the sim on top of the OMSP for counter. The sim is flowing and not sitting down on the counter.

Can you show us how to do that with a tutorial? Thank you very much.

htlovescats, the way I got the pic for the sim sitting on the counter is described in the tutorial that John links in the first post - she's sitting in a chair, then moved onto a magisplay tray which sits on Ari's OMSP for coffee tables. If you put a sim on the magisplay tray for counters crosslegged, yeah, they are gonna float above the counter a little bit - the magisplay tray lifts a sim up some. Just don't take the pic from directly in front of them or below them - look down just a bit when you take it and it shouldn't matter one bit.

Thank you.
It worked. I got my Sim sitting on the counter.
And it really looked great for the story.

Thank you.

John, thanks so much for making these! I'll use them on every lot! Would it be possible to make some the right heights for the piano and fireplaces? I like clutter everywhere

Thank you very much for these. I can add them to my collection of "one more slot" packages.

Where oh where can I get the counter clutter items in your pics? I would love to have them all, especially that sink, dish drainer & all those cannisters. I have some kitchen clutter already, but none of those. And also, can you still use the counters to prepare food on & set food platters on, even with the clutter, with your mod?

P.S. I already checked HystericalParoxysm's downloads as I read that she took the pics. I didn't see any of the counter clutter in her downloads.

Well, why would John know where to get clutter that I had in my game, ya silly? Most of my clutter I have gotten from the lists here: http://sims2wiki.info/Content_List

The counters are still usable with the clutter on them - they're sitting on the surface made by the OMSP, not the counter itself, so there may be some clipping if you have a lot of clutter on the counter, but it's still usable.

Thank you HystericalParoxysm & yes, how silly of me. I had just gone back & re-read his first post, to see that he included a line about the stuff in your pics. I was coming back to edit my first post & saw you had already replied. Sorry I didn't read in more carefully in the beginning.

You replied very quickly...you must be online now, same as me. Anyway, thanks for both answering my question about the counters usability & where to get the clutter. You're a sweetheart!

Its good to see the OMSP group finished. And they seem to work fine. Any idea on how to fix the problem with the origonal ones, for the desk and table? They still don't stay invisible after reloading a lot.
