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 item is EP ready. This is my second creation for the game. I made this gun cabinet for my husband for his Sim family. I have created everything about the guns, down to the scope and the trigger. I played it in the game for 3 sim days and it seems to be working fine. I am trying to make some recolorables but am having trouble with it only showing the one color, so I will be working on those and if I get some recolors, I will post them in the recolor section. Keep an eye out for them there. This is a new mesh made with MilkShape and Lithunwrap. I know some people are against guns, and I hope I don't affend anyone with this. I want to thank RGiles for all his help with the door window. If you have any problems, please let me know. Enjoy all you hunters!

Default gun cabinet
Hi
I have checked the files out for a virus with Nortons and it came up clean. If you downloaded it Girliesim and it said there was a virus, it had to be from your machine. Like I said, I checked it with Nortons and it came up clean.

lordgaret2000 Great work, It looks awesome. We need more items like this for our Military/Hunters Sims, Keep up the effort. As for you cutie_girliesim could it be you're just against guns and trying to stop people from downloading this? Seems a little odd that in all of the posted items I've downloaded this is the only one to be infected with a "virus". It just seems a little fishy to me. If you're against guns fine you don't have to download, but don't start a "virus" scare to make your point. If that's Not what you are doing I appologize, But if it is grow up!

Get your fithy paws off of me you damn dirty ape!

For the military minded sim; How about a wall map of thier greatest campaign? Or a medals display? I know of very few military that would have live weapons on display in thier homes.

As for the gun case: Beautiful! Would love a wall mounted gun display of a revolutionary war era flint lock rifle.

Thanks for sharing, this is great!


When the man knocked on the door and said "Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms" I just naturally assumed he was making a delivery!

This looks great. Definately will use this for my southern family.

It's an awesome mesh, have you concidered making a china cabinet or something similar? It's a very similar design. Just a small suggestion, because I've been searching for a hutch/china cabinet for over a month.

Default Updated: Gun Cabinet Mesh
I just wanted to let everyone know I updated the gun cabinet after I was searching the site and came up with a forum about polygons and vertices. I redid some of it and changed the handles abit, and also changed the color of the guns alittle. The older version had 5178 polygons and 2699 vertices, so I worked on it and lowered them alittle. The polygons for the new version is 3942 and the vertices are 2079. That means I lowered the polygons by about 1236 and the vertices by about 620. I know its not much taken off but to go down any lower, I would have to delete some or all of the guns and in MilkShape there is not that much that you can use to make the mesh with, without getting alot of polys or vertices. I have taken a new photo of the colors that I have put with this one. you can not use both of the gun cabinets in the game being they use the same GUID. If you don't mind the high polygons and vertices and like the first ones colors, then you can use that, but if you want lower polygons and vertices then you have to use the new one. If you want a different color, I am willing to make them for you, but I can get the gun cabinet to recolor so you can only use just one at at time. If you have any problems please let me know.
