Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Before I start, I'd like to give HUGE thanks to Buzzler, who wrote the VanishingObject script, and Base1980, who provided me a correct placement flag.






Introduction


Welcome to the world of OPHs,OE, and OR; the revolutionary helper objects to give you almost complete freedom of decorating your sim's houses. So, what are OPHs,OE, and OR? OPH stands for Object Placement Helper, OE for Object enlarger, and OR for Object Reducer. The names of these objects are pretty self explatory. They are like OMSP's for sims2, so if you have used OMSP's before, these would be quite easy to use. Even if you have never used OMSP's before, these are extremely easy to use.








The green flat tile is the OR, the red one is OE and the yellow blocks are OPHs.




You can stack them upon each other to produce a EXACT hight you want.





To use OPHs,OR,OE

1. Place any object you want, and then stack OPHs to the correct hight.


2.Place any object you want upon the stacked OPHs.


3.Open the cheat console and type ' moveObjects on '



4.Place them nicely under the funitures.


5.If you want to make your object smaller, larger, stack OE or OR on the stacked OPHs, then place your object.





6. Now, to turn them invisible, enter the live mode, click on any of the OPHs,OR,OE, then select the 'invisibility...' menu to turn them invisible(they will reappear in the buy mode).





Your done!!!






Please read

You MUST have Buzzlers Vanishing Object script mod (http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=406614) to turn your objects invisible.


****If your game doesn't let you stack more than 2 OPHs, try downloading Claeric's Higher 'Pedestal Stacking Indoors' mod>>http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=390860 That should help****



They all cost 0, and are under Buy mode>Object by category> Decor>Micellaneous Decor. They are not recolerable (I mean, who would want to recolor an object that will vanish in live mode?).




Poly counts

OPHs: 11vertices,13faces

OE,OR: 7vertices,4faces

OPHs, OR and OE.zip | Simply unzip the file and put the package into the downloads folder

Size: 20.9 KB · Downloads: 5,027 · 7th Nov 2010

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.

Thank you so much, I've been waiting for this since Sims 3 came out.

I have a question. I like to design in the architect profession in ambitions using slots on a bunch of shelves and bathtubs and things, but the client yells at me because they say they can't get to their objects when they are all decorative. Will that happen with these?

Hey sims_reality!

First of all, these are AWESOME. You should have heard the noise I made when I saw them! Truly fantastic - LOVE THEM!

However, I have a couple... things... related to them.

I've tested them (yes, I downloaded them out of the moderation queue - hey, I was excited!) and there's an... unexpected bug/feature/thing? If you put an object on the OR, it shrinks it as expected - if you continue holding onto the OR and press > on the keyboard to rotate the object, it increases the object size by a little for 2 presses. Which is actually kind of cool.

Likewise... If you put an object on the OE, it enlarges it as expected - and then if you continue holding onto it and press > on the keyboard to rotate, it decreases the object size by a little, for several presses (much more than the OR). However, it seems to shrink it much more side to side than vertically, so you end up with very tall skinny objects. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing for some applications - but not as useful as if it scaled it the same both ways. I'm not sure if this is unexpected behavior though - it's not mentioned in the description, but I notice that the statue in this pic looks scaled down more in height than in width/depth, so perhaps it's something you came across in testing?

Also, one small suggestion - the in-game description and title are sort of ambiguous - spelling out each name (Object Placement Helper - 1.0 Height) and using the description for very basic usage instructions ("To use: Stack OPHs to desired height, place OR or OE on top of OPHs if scaling is desired, then place decor object on stacked OPHs. Use moveobjects on and move stack with object on top into place. Then enter Live Mode and use the Invisibility menu to make them invisible." or something like that) might be a little easier if people go off to play with them and forget the instructions.

It's not letting me stack more than 2 OMH's on top of each other. Is it supposed to be this way? And could you remove the footprint so that we would not need to use moveobjects?

On another note, thank you a TON. This is absolutely amazing.

Same here, I can only stack two, but I don't have HELS or Ambitions installed yet. Could that be the reason maybe?
I wonder if there could be more OR and OE's which scale to different sizes? Is that possible? Some objects are just too huge or too tiny.

All that aside! These are AWESOME!!!! THANK YOU!!! THANK YOU!! :D

Oh,,I had the issue of objects shrinking/enlarging at a different scale when I rotate them, but I really have no idea why that is happening...XD
