2008-12-05: Updated to v1.02. Pets AtomicAge dining table (round glass 1-tiled table) was fixed.

*****************

All Maxis tables, desks and end tables have fixed slot height of 0.8. If the table mesh height is lower than 0.8, you'll end up with The Mysterious Floating Plate. Higher than 0.8, the table will eat the objects placed on it. This glitch happens mostly in poorly made custom tables, but sometimes EAxian objects suffer from it too.

For example, the mesh of BV Hotel end table is slightly higher than standard table height. If you put thin objects like bills or coupons on it, they will be eated by the table. (See the screenshot above.)

This mod adjusts the slot height of several Maxis tables, so that small objects will not bleed into the table.
You have to sell and re-buy existing tables.

List of objects fixed by this mod:
  • End Table by Splendid Scenes (Table - End - Hotel)
  • Blooms & Boomers End Table (Table - End - Groovy)
  • "Visivue" Dining Table (Table - Dining - NightClub 1x1)
  • Beta Fomicron Dining Table (Table - Dining - AtomicAge)
If you notice other tables afflicted with similar glitch, please let me know.


Installation:

Place in your My Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\Downloads folder.

File name was changed. Remove LdDarcy_TableEndHotelSlotHeightFix_BV.package if you've downloaded the previous version.

I saw this yesterday and thought that I should maybe get a copy, but didn't. Today, the plastic flowery end-table ated a magazine that one of my sims put down on it! Lesson learnt (the hard way, as always...). Thanks for this, Darcy, you are a hero of fixing things!

I have noticed something similar happening with the Exploding Dragon dining table in BV. Every time my Sim ordered a TV dinner from room service the waiter would put it down on the table and then there was no sign of it. Bizarrely after I'd saved the game then restarted it the tray was back! By that time it had flies buzzing 'round it. If you fix this one I'd be mighty grateful.
