Wine Garden Dining Set

by simdebster Posted 24th Jun 2006 at 4:26 AM - Updated 13th Jun 2013 at 4:46 PM by simdebster : Adding Yggdrasil's table mesh which is file share friendly and I had been given permission back in 2005 to repost the mesh.

This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
Wine Garden Dining.

Tables: There are both Night Life (EP2) tables and Yggdrasil's tables and a variety of choices for each.
Chairs: Both the Ergo Supreme and the Bon Appetit chairs are offered. I have provided the dark wood for the Bon Appetit for download (The Ergo Supreme's dark wood is available on the Golden Christmas Forest Dining page). Also, the two wood versions of the High Chair are included in the chairs zip (I forgot to get a screenshot of it, but you can see it in the dining pictures).
Default China: Now your Sims can eat with the same plates that are in the china cabinet (Gromit's Welsh Dresser). It is one file and it overrides the dishes, bowls (incl. baby's bowl), drinking glasses and the dishes shown in both the cheap and expensive dishwashers. The downside of this is that everywhere in your game, this china will be used since uou can only have one china override in the game at a time. It would be cool if Maxis would allow you to specify a china pattern for each lot, but that would probably introduce too many complexities for them to do this. Anyway, when you are tired of it, you can just change the extension to anything other than package and you will stop seeing it in your game (of course, you should only do this when the game is not running). Note: I plan to offer china with my current sets and any new sets that I create in the future.
Lighting: I have recolored several lights from the base game to give you a greater choice when decorating.
Curtains: More curtains to choose from. Yay!

Links to meshes:
I have included the mesh to Yggdrasil's tables in the downloads below because the link at Sims 2 Friends is not working.. (Updated 13 June 13)
Welsh Dresser by Gromit

The only items in this set that require Night Life are the Night Life tables.
Make sure you have the meshes for the Welsh Dresser and Yggdrasil's tables.

My recolor files are always "File-Share-Friendly" and must remain FREE for download (that means if they are included in a house that is posted on a paysite, then the house itself has to be a free download).

And last but not least, I hope that you like the set. Enjoy!

I LOVE this color! And as tables/chairs are second only to kitchen items used most in my game (and probably everyone else's) it's great to see a fabulous recolor of an existing Maxis mesh.

Thanks everyone! I have just got on to read your comments. Our electricity has been out for a little under 7 hours when there was no storm. We just got it back on and now we have a thunderstorm threatening to take it away again. Not a good day!

145curatolo: From your lips to Maxis' ears...LOL! Thanks so much! And yes, I have more sets already in line to create, but I wanted to continue with this set into other rooms since it has been a favorite of everyone.

Have a bright platinum diamond day!

This set is terrific! The only thing I noticed is that there's no kitchen to go with the dining room...or did I just miss it? Thanks again for this set.

There was a problem with the table cloth mesh. Do you have the direct link?
