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.


This set includes a placemat, silverware, plates, and salt and pepper shakers. I made it to match my Cozy Cottage Dining Set.The placemat, silverware, and shakers are at table height. This means you can place the mat, then place the silverware on top, and then the plate in the table's slot. Also, the shakers can be placed anywhere on the table (while holding ALT). The mats and the designs(3) on the plates are recolourable.

Issues:
This set works best on small tables.
The three table-high items can only be selected from top view.
The shakers' thumbnail is missing.
Only the plates move with the table.
Only the plates have a 3D thumbnail.

Updated 1-24-10 fixes:
  • Fixed corrupted files (wasn't causing problems, but files were corrupt)
  • Fixed 3D thumbnails
  • Fixed grab areas
  • Fixed shakers and placemat disappearing on zoom
  • Fixed placemat showing through default plates

Please redownload.

Polygon Counts:
placemat 550
silverware 457
plate 272
shakers 588

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.

Can Sims still use the table to eat if these are already placed there?

The plate is the only item that fills a slot, so with no plate sims can still eat at the table.

this items works fine with WA? I ask because some decorations items cause blue lots... Sorry for my bad english
#24 Old 24th Nov 2009 at 8:06 PM
Oh great! I accidentally downloaded a Sims THREE clutter for my Sims TWO game. ::blush::

Um, I don`t suppose you`d be willing to do a Sims 2 version? Nah, I didn`t suppose so.
