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!

Hate to bump ancient posts but I NEED that podium and stove thinger for my dream of having a restaurant with my home upstairs.

Is there anyway anyone can continue this or remake it?

Alternatively, is there ANY other way to get those things in an already existing residential plot?

Please, can someone make it...I want it so badly, after I build everything perfect for a restaurant then I find out I cant buy a podium. So disappointing...Pls someone make an update for this so that everyone can use it again. It is no longer workable in sims 2. I drag it out in the buy mode but nothing show up.
