Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Two collection files of custom crafted objects that are normally made at craft stations in OFB. With these you can buy the craft objects directly from the game catalog instead.

==> Installation: Place OFBCraftObjects.package and OFBCraftObjectsCommunity.package files in your Collections folder (My Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\Collections). The new collection called "OFB Craft Objects" will appear in your game catalog under Collections. One is visible on residential lots, the other - on community lots. Residential file also includes dining podiums and restaurant stove.

To remove: Delete the files named above.

==> Special instructions for robots (except servo): Turn on moveobjects cheat code (moveobjects on). Buy a robot and a base unit for that type of robot - hover base for flying robots, rover base for others - place the base unit on the ground first, place the robot on top. Turn off the cheat code (moveobjects off).

____________________________________________________________

*Update* Added two OFB community counters to the residential file. One is a Story Book style, the other is modern.

*Update* Added car podium to the residential file, as reqiested.

*Oct 21/06* BIG THANKS to Twojeffs for updated collection files! If you have Pets EP, download the new files. Note, you have to use collection folder in BUILD MODE. Also the objects still appear greyed out in the collection folder. But at least it they are usable again!

No baked goods, sorry! I tried but they are either well hidden or don't have GUID at all. The pieces I extracted didn't work.

Default The Hydro and Cleanbots
I have placed the hydro and clean bots on the lot, both by using move objects on and with it off. Both robots have no interations and cannot be turned on. Also the only way to move or get rid of them is using move objects.

Did you buy a base unit for each robot? Turn on the cheat code, place the base unit, place the robot on top. The robot orients itself facing the front of the base when you do it properly.

LOL that's what I forgot to do. I bought the bases for the hover and sentry bots, but not the other 2 bots. Silly me.:banghead:

Thanks for the OFB Craft Objects Windkeeper, your a very talented artist and I use most of your creations in my houses I build. Even though my sim has a gold medal in electronics making and flower arranging this will be perfect for my poor sims who dont want to deal with maid service. I have a slight problem though and I don't know if you would be able to answer this, but when I place a Servo bot inside and outside of the house, it seems as if different things suddenly cut away but once the servo bot is activated it all goes back to normal again. What would cause this? But other than that, your creations work great and I wanted to thank you.

No idea, SimMonte. Didn't notice anything like that when I was using servo. Do you get the same thing if you buy a servo from a store?

#43 Old 11th Mar 2006 at 11:34 PM
It does as well when I buy a servo bot from the store and place it within the lot. My 1 Sim built 3 servo robots and all did the same thing with cuttin away other objects and walls but once activated it was fine. I'm wondering if it is my graphics card in this computer.. may need to get it updated.

It could be. Or just a funny glitch in your game.

one thing I noticed with the stations is that you can get the robots cheaper by using debug menu while the stations are placed. However, you have to pause livemode befor buying it as the stations have a "timebomb" which kills the object as soon as time passes in live mode.

Thank you very much! I know I can trust your work. I was going nuts trying to find the stove and podium for my home restaurant. Suppose we could do Little House On the Prairie now, eh? :wave:

You get what you give.

ah, i think the trouble with the food is that they are shown as serving platters, no matter what is on them. However the game reconises what type of serving platter needs refilling... you just cant tell yourself if they are empty... the hover text says 'serving platter'

Thank you so much windkeeper! This is going to help so much, there was one thing I really wanted though, it was the story book counter (well both new ofb counters) I can't understand why they weren't put in the resi catalogue, if you could add them, I would give you my first born child, or alternatly, a really big box of chocolates - your choice.

I try to take one day at a time, but lately several days have been attacking me at once.

Could you also add the car display? it seems to be community-only, too.
