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.
Hello everyone! Hope you're doing well! Well I came to Mod The Sims to find out how to get going with making my own objects for The Sims 3 and finally after many long hours of time spent I've created my first working object for you guys I hope you enjoy it!



It's a coffee table (which can also be used as an end table) that is FULLY recolorable. The only thing you can't change is the glass, but otherwise you can change it to whatever color, pattern, etc. that you'd like

Just install it (with the InstallHelper) and you'll be able to find it in Surfaces > Coffee Tables for §166.

[NOTE: Thumbnail may look like a repeat of another end table, just click on it and you'll be able to tell which one is which]
[NOTE: Also note that this object is VERY reflective, so the colors of its surroundings may change how the object's true color looks in the game.]


Polygon Counts:
Poly/Faces: 950 ; Vertices: 516

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

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Awesome! Can you make a square version? Thanks!

Not buying TS4 until Terrain Sculpting is back and cheatless Split Levels are added!
Here's an idea: Stairs Pitch Slider.
