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.
**Update** I reworked the mesh to try to fix a problem with a dead area that would not allow sims to cleanup or be ordered to eat after food was placed. Let me know if it worked, I tested for a couple of hours and it seems to have fixed it for me. Also changed the UVmap so the wood grain runs the length of the table instead of across, I think it looks better this way.

This is a reworked Maxis mesh, I wanted the top the same wood as the base, but just editing the original in SimPE did not do the trick. So I did a makeover of the original in Milkshape.

This is a 3 tile object, so if you divide the vertices or polygons by 3 the amounts per tile are well under those recommended by Maxis.

Polygons (faces) = 1518
Vertices = 1554
It has it's own GUID so it won't overwrite anything.

It should be compatible even if you don't have the University exp., as the base mesh came with the original TS2 game. Let me know if you have any problem.

Each table zip or rar file also contains a matching chair frame. Base is the cherry wood set.

As with all my work, they are free to re-colour as you want, however if you post on a pay site, this mesh MUST remain a free download, or post a link to a free download.
Anything made by me is File-Share-Friendly and MUST remain that way.

Enjoy, Kathy :D

This is great! Mortimer Goth is just dying to have a nice classic table for his manor! The glass is just too modern for his taste! Thanks.

If you're in hell, and are mad at someone,
where do you tell them to go?

the table looks nice but I recently found out that when a sim puts out other plates on table for family members to eat, they are unable to be directed to a plate to be able to eat. Also can not direct a sim to clean up the plates from the table. When i deleted the table and put back the orig. style table it was ok again.

I recently found out that when a sim puts out other plates on table for family members to eat, they are unable to be directed to a plate to be able to eat. Also can not direct a sim to clean up the plates from the table.

I don't know why it would do that, I have the table in my Goth house and they use it with no problem. I just did a test with them doing the exact things in your note and they did them all with no hesitation or faults.

I do know that when a sim sets out a family meal if there are other hungry Sims in the house they will instantly put a marker on the plate of their choice and no other sim will be able to eat it, even if directed to do so. As for cleaning it up sometime they have other things that take priority like being overtired, going to work, needing a bathroom stop, etc., and they will block out all other directions.

Other than that I don't know what to tell you, anyone else having this problem please let me know.

Kathy :D

I had the same serving problem. I'm running w/o university but with the patch. Not only individual bowls not selectable, the actual serving bowl was unselectable, the dirty dishes were unselectable.

I love the table, I hope we can figure out why this is happening. They eat at it fine, but if they don't choose to eat on their own, I can't help them along.

Added info: I went back into my game to a diff house, it worked fine there, exactly as expected. Realized the other house had the table outside, I *think* on a deck. Put a table on a deck, it worked fine. I'm going to keep poking at this and see if I can reproduce the problem. They're beautiful tables! I love them, I so wanted more tables of that size.

Okay, I've found something, wonder if others can reproduce this in their game!

I'm running patched Sims 2, no uni.

The table's location in the game when I try to grab it in buy mode is off by one square the long way. In that, on one end, I can grab the empty air and get the table, on the other end, I can try grabbing the table leg all I want and select nothing.

The unselectable food depends on the *direction I'm viewing the table from*.
If I view the table from the sides or one end of the table, I can click on plates of food, I can select the serving tray in the center and tell my sims to grab some food. If I turn myself around and approach the table from the other end of the table, I can no longer select anything, it just doesn't respond.

Now you can note that I tend to play my properties from primarily one angle, because at first I had a table 'working' in one house and not in another, lol.

I'm not a super-modder so I have no idea why this object would display this odd behavior, but maybe if it can be reproduced then a solution will be findable

Very weird, I wonder if it has anything to do the with version of SimPE that I used or the fact that I have the exansion pack? I've tested the table in my game and have it in several houses with no problem. I really don't know what I can do to change what is happening for you.

Have you tried the original table to see if the same thing happens? When I made it the only things I did was alter the top of the table in Milkshape, reimported the mesh over the original base as a stand alone object (to remove the link for the glasstop effect), and change the GUID so it wouldn't overwrite the original.

I tried to recreate what tiggerypum was saying and it worked fine for myself or I didnt recreate it wellso maybe its an non ep problem because I have the ep installed
