Add-ons for the Maxis “Vault” and “SCargeaux” kitchen cabinets:
  • Light fix for the cabinets (so that they are rendered like the counters)
  • Additional No-drop cabinets

Update 2015-10-19: Updated vault-edits.zip: Fixes for the unlocked colour options added to the vault_lightfix.package, said colour options added to the no-drop.package. You need to download the additional colours for them to actually show up on the regular cabinets (this only fixes them).

Update 2015-01-25: Shader fix for the “Vault” bar added – thanks to missgothika for making me aware that it had the same issue! A thread on how to change the shaders used for custom objects has been started here.

2015-03-02: No-Drop cabinets for the Harbinger and Tall Order kitchen are now available here; for the BlandCo kitchen they are here.




No-Drop packages:

Puts a version of all cabinets in the Counters section that won’t drop with walls so they won’t leave strange holes when viewed from the backside. They work exactly like the regular cabinets apart from that, with the pop-up model selection and all (they are the same objects, the mods are basically an alias that only changes the placement flag).


Cabinet light fixes:

Changes the shader on the cabinets to the one that is used on the counters (the difference is most visible on the white SCargeaux counters and the light Vault ones, but it’s the same for all colour versions).


“Vault” bar light fix:

Same thing for the “Vault” bars (far as I can see, these are the only ones that have shader issues, hence why there is only one fix).

When you change the camera so that the wall “drops” (goes down, is hidden .. not sure of a better word), yes. See the backside screenshot -- the no-drop cabinets will remain visible from the backside.

Did you place them from cabinets or from counters?

Uhh, needed a light fix for the cabinets so much! You're the best! Will you be adding the other cabinets anytime soon?

This mod is great, I love it!
I did notice an issue (that maybe that 'catsrus' person above had too?) with the plain s'cargaux cabinet. When I select any of the 'special' ones (like with the plates, or the extra tall one, etc) they stay up instead of dropping as I expected. However the plain 'default' s'cargaux cabinet still disappears leaving a gap in my kitchen.
Just thought I'd let you know.

For me it works. See screenshots -- the one on the left is the "plain" one you mean, yes?

I don't know what could be causing your issue. Have you checked without other CC?

(I believe the issue of the user above was because they were using the regular cabinets.)

Interesting. Thanks for checking for me. That is the plain one I meant. I'll investigate further and get back to you.

Man I miss the dashboard that used to tell us when we had CC conflicts. ASFAIK none of my other CC should be impacting this cabinet (90% of my CC is yours... lol) and one of the reasons I thought that the no drop mod just wasn't working was cos the 'plain' Scargaux cabinet doesn't get the 'script call failed' error when I try to recolour it, but all the other cabinets do.

That sounds like something else is overriding that cabinet. Mine is no different from all of the other variants, it also has a long ID (which results in that Script Error until Maxis finally get around and fix that).
