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!

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Wow, thanks Windkeeper!!! This will help immensely (for those too lazy to skill up their Sims to actually make these things). I have one question... Since these are collection files, and not actual downloads, shouldn't these files go into the Collections folder? Basically you're enabling them to be buyable via collection (much like the residential-to-community collection).

Edit:
I just saw in your post where you mentioned putting the files in Collections if it doesn't work in Downloads. I *think* they do belong in Collections. If you are not 100% certain, just check out Loverat's res-to-comm collections. Those files definitely go into the Collections folder. I just know that in the past collection files found in Downloads can crash your game.

Thanks for this info! Yes, they usually should go into Collections folder, but they also work in Downloads folder in my game. I specified Downloads folder thinking that people would find it easier to just drop the files there. But I guess I better change instructions, just to be safe

It's me again, just tried the stove and the podium and they work great! No more voodoo NPC chefs/hostesses materializing in residential lots woohoo!!! and my home/restaurant can work properly now!

By the way, I installed it straight into my collections folder.
