This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
IMPORTANT!

There was an error with the counter, causing *shock* crashes but I have fixed it and re-uploaded it now! PLEASE re-download and let the new file MESH_barnstore_counter_berg.package OVERWRITE the old one in your downloads folder!

Original message:

This set was created especially for my favourite family created with "Seasons" - the Gardeners!

They spend most of the day out in the field planting, tending and harvesting and when they aren't planting, tending and harvesting they sell the produce in their store... But I wasn't quite pleased with how it looked so I decided to finally try object meshing, and this is the result:


This set contains ten new meshes:

A counter, cloned from a commercial counter but available both at residential and community lots

three shelves/displays + recolours (OFB),

a decorative sack + recolours,

a living chair made out of sacks,

a bar stool + recolours,

two different food displays + recolours (comm. lot only)

and an endtable + recolours.

IMPORTANT:

I was very ignorant when I started to make all objects above, and thought that cloning a base game object would make it compatible with the base game only. I was wrong. I tested the non-OFB objects in base game only but it didn't work
I know now how I should have made them from the start, so I might remake them for a basegame-only environment later.

I haved tested and played these objects in my current game configuration which is:

Nightlife, Open For Business, Pets and Seasons

and I suspect that you must own these EP:s for the objects to work since especially OFB and Pets changed how some objects work. I'm not 100% sure, though, so if you are brave and want to test - please report back!

I don't have University anymore so I couldn't test with it.

BUT these objects work exactly like they should in my game. No conflicts, no overwriting, no hiccups of any kind. I really hope they work that way in your game too - this is the first time I'm sharing an object made by me, so I really, REALLY wish that you report any weirdness back to this thread, if it would occur!

-You may share these objects with uploaded lots, but it's probably better if they are thouroughly tested first so any problems can be sorted out.

-You may clone these objects if you would like to make them shinier and better (or the opposite... It's up to you...)

-Recolour and share at will! You may include the meshes with recolours on free sites.

Wow. your barn lot with barn stuff is great.

Update: July 2009-I am back now to make invisible and tranparent recolors again in sims 2. You can pm me if you want your objects to be invisible and transparent from now.

I love this whole set. I can find many uses for it in my game and all your stuff is always good quality. So, thank you for making this.

Wonderful set, Berg. There seems to be a problem with the commercial counter, however; it's crashing my game when I attempt to rotate it and connect it to another counter. Tried twice now, and same result both times.

This was tested on a standard commercial/community lot, with all of the EPs installed.

Oh dear, not good!

But I think I know how I screwed it up... I'm removing it temporarily from this thread and PM you when I have another vesion ready.

Thank you for reporting this so quickly!

Lovely set! Just one silly question: do the "community only" objects work on a home business? Cause I'd like to use them for a farm+home shop lot I'm making.

Well, I'm currently trying to make the counter available on residential lots too, so I hope I'll be able to say "Yes" regarding that one when I'm posting the updated version here.

The produce bins, however, are currently only available on owned business lots and community lots. I don't know how wise it would be to modify them to be available on residential lots also since the original produce bins aren't, besides - I wouldn't know how to do it yet! :p

I want to download this, but does anyone know if it's compatible with AL-M&G?

If anyone could let me know for certain, that would be wonderful. Otherwise I guess I'm testing it on my poor farmers.
