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.
6/11/05 - I finally figured out how to get the drawer animation lowered, so I've redone the Short version of the dresser. The sims still have their hands at the original location though. I also re-uvmapped the desk to allow for nicer recolours per Jem's request. Download the SS_Dresser_Short_Updated.zip and extract over the old version. I've included an updated Cherry recolor in the zip for it also.

5/9/05 - I cloned a TS2 dresser this time. Jem confirmed that both the Dresser V2 (tall) and the new Short Dresser show up and work in TS2. You only need to download SS_Dresser_Sleigh_V2_Mesh.zip if the original dresser does not show up in game. You should delete the original dresser mesh file ifyou are going to install the V2. V2 is compatible with the EP as well as TS2. The original recolours work with the V2 version.

The SS_Dresser_Sleigh_Short_Mesh.zip is the smaller version of the dresser. It does not have the drawer animation, but the functions still work. It has it's own recolours (SleighDresserShortRecolours.zip). The short version works in both EP and TS2.

As requested here is a sleigh style dresser. This will fit in nicely with the rest of the sleigh style furniture. It has all of the normal dresser functionality. I was able to retain the animation of the drawer opening and closing.

Unique Guid (Both tall dressers have same guid though)
EP Ready (Orig Tall Dresser EP Required)

Love the sleigh style furniture and it works well in my game (I am sure the low poly's are a big help).

So thanks.

I am working on something for the living room. It's not necessarily "sleigh" but does use the same wood tones so would compliment it. I hope to have it finished this weekend.

I tried making a smaller version of this dresser also, for a kids room, but the animation of the drawer ends up teleporting the drawer to ontop of the dresser lol. But if any one is interested in a mini dresser minus animations (behaviours still work though) let me know and I'll post that one also.

I, myself, would use it without animations. I think I have some already. I tend to click on change into or plan outfit, then move onto what they need to do next. I never watch to see if they open the drawer or not. With or without animations you do beautiful work. Thank you for sharing.
