Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I took a bunch of the non buyable objects in game and made them buyable. Place the .package files in your \Downloads folder.
You will find the objects under the Sculptures section, next to the paintings section.

Ever wanted your own Satellite to place on a coffee table, now you can have it. Need a suitcase? How about your own phonebooks?
These objects can be placed on any surface or even outside. They don't do anything special, they are just for decoration. I'll post a picture of the objects also.
The objects will show up under Sculptures (the statue icon) which is next to the painting icon.
You can put these items on any surface or even outside. They don't do anything special, they are just like the other art in the game.

*UPDATED 09-20-05* These objects seem to work with the Nightlife expansion. If anyone finds a problem with any items, let me know.

*UPDATED 03-05-05* I've tried these objects with the expansion pack and haven't found any problems. I also renamed them so they all have A_ on the front of the names, to sort them better in the downloads folder. If you have the original files, just put them in your downloads folder, you don't have to download the new files. The only difference between the new files and the old ones are the names.
I noticed that you can put 3 of the items on a counter top at the same time now for a more cluttered look.
Let me know if you have any trouble with them. Also, about giving the items functions, well, I haven't learned how to do that yet. Maybe I will be able to one day. I added the files in a new zip file and will attach it.
Style: Not Applicable

Your all welcome.
There were a few objects I wanted to add, but they didn't look right. They would sink down into the ground or tables. Some were on their side, like the plunger. I really wanted it to be upright so I could place it next to my toilet. Anyone know how to rotate objects yet?

Well, I don't know if it was me, but the collection showed up in my game under sculptures I think. Although it wasn't the collection, jist the fire extinguisher. Great idea though!

Struck by the fears that have chased me since childhood. I stumbled, crawled and learned to walk again.

Yeah, they all show up under Sculptures. I used the Vase as the base and didn't change the place the items show up at.

What do you mean, you only had the Fire Extinguisher show up? Nothing else showed up?

Can you make the cars buyable objects? I downloaded something for the game (can't remember what) but weirdly - there was the Super Sports Car right there in my &quot;Electronics&quot; Section of Buy Mode. I dont know how it got there, but I want all the cars! But I cant figure out how to make objects. Anyone else have the skills? ?!

Look. It's my signature.

Nevermind.. found them! :@

But.. If anyone figures out how to make &quot;real&quot; cars (like in Sims 1, I had a Camaro and a PT Cruiser and a Mercedes)... let me know! Ill keep my eyes peeled.

Look. It's my signature.

Loverat I was just giggling to myself thinking the same thing because I got so excited about these new objects.
Petreak, thank you very much for doing this.

No, nothing else showed up. I'll try again though and make sure.

Ahh, what I'm thinking is we get one of the GREAT modders on this site to make a hack for the pre-existing satellite to target other sims, then it will trigger a satellite death on that sim, after that you can sell one of the satellites, or make a collection of space junk.
A lot easier than having to wait AGES for all your sims to get hit by satellites.

You may have squirrelled a nut once in your life, but you have never nutted a squirrel.

This is great can you add the gravestone to this? I really want some purely deco gravestones for my graveyards.

There is already another collection that has all the gravestones and urns in it. Search this forum.

Very nice! Now, if only we could get the obvious interactions attached to them.

I only have one package file in the .rar I'm downloading.

It's just the fire extinguisher.

I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to have the rest of it!!

One day when I get good at this, I'm going to mode those clothes pile to act as a dresser.

I dunno why Maxis made such huge freaking dressers.
