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.
Introducing the LazyGirl Sectional Sofa group. I did not change any behaviours on these. So each item should retain it's orignal options. I lost the couch cushion animations, but the Recliner animation does work. Though I haven't figured out how to tell them to put their arms in a different spot, or even if it's possible. The units mix and match so you can create what ever layouts you like.

Ep Compatible but Not Required
Unique Guids

Poly Count
Lounger (Left/Right): 1091 (Maxis original 1656)
Recliner (Left/Right): 1246 (Maxis original 1537)
Corner Unit (Left/Right): 896 (Maxis original 1236)
Loveseat: 1093 (Maxis original 2868 )

Cloned From
Lounger: ? = (C^11)?
Recliner: Cheap Eazzzze Puffy Recliner
Corner Unit: Contempo Good living
Loveseat: Loveseat by Club Distress

Tools SimPE .35e (qa)
Blender
Milkshape/Milkshape Plugin

Recolour Information
All the items have two parts that are recolourable. The fabric and the frame.

Frame:
The frame uses custom textures. The frame texture is stored in the Left Corner Unit (SS_Sectional_Corner_Left_Mesh.package). You must install this file at the minimum. To create additional frame recolours, create the colour package for the Left Corner Unit. The mesh contains the oak recolour. I've included zips for the White and the Cherry wood recolour.

Fabric:
The fabric is linked to the Cheap Eazzze Puffy Recliner. All recolours for that work with all the sectional units. To create a recolour you will need to create a colour package for the Cheap Eazzze Puffy Recliner. I've created 4 patterned recolours and 8 leather recolours. You can find them in this thread.

Installation Instructions
Unzip and put in Download dir (or below)

Usage
Found in Livingroom - Seating, Sofas (as well as in original object sub function)

Disclaimer
As it uses alpha/beta tools, all my objects must be considered beta until otherwise stated.

Recolouring & Posting Policy
You may recolour as you desire. You may post your recolours, but you must not post the original mesh. Provide a link to the original mesh where you post your recolour.

At this time do not include my objects in any posted house /lots.

Notes
Yes the white recolour size is correct. Single colour textures compress very well.
Style: Contemporary
Room: Living
Maxis Flags: Not Applicable

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

Har, OMG, quit reading my mind! The only sectionals for Sims 2 I've seen weren't that impressive, and on a pay site besides. These look fantastic (so comfy-lookin'!) and they're lower poly than Maxis originals besides! Thank you!

Looks great, SnowStorm! Can the sims "scoot" and cuddle on your sofa? Not all three seaters allow this.
...I think there's a problem with the site downloads (MTS, that is).
I'll wait until the site is back to normal.
