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.
Dining for Four is a small collection of base game 1x2 tile tables made smaller to fit in a 1x1 tile for smaller homes.

Each table is a half size of the original and costs half the amount. It has all the same default textures as the 2-tile version.
  • Found in Surfaces/Dining
  • Each has two CAST-able Channels - same as original
  • Club §145
  • Quaint §105
  • Modern §225

Made with Base game and Patch 1.7

Polygon Counts:
Club 500
Quaint 744
Modern 324

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

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Great to have 1x1 tables that already match EA chairs--also being able to keep decor when the family grows

HL, I love the small tables; unfortunately, I can't use a computer with them (tried the cheap base game desktop). The option is grayed out on the pie menu and the tool tip says no chair when I try to click on the computer with my sim. There is one, really. To be sure, I'd go back into buy mode and pick up the table to make sure the chair is "connected". I've tried with the three here and with your LACK dining table and get the same result.
I know it's possible as I have other custom 1x1 tables and also the base game 1x1 tables that allow using as a computer table. Would you, could you, pretty please - adjust the tables to allow use with a computer? If no, I'll completely understand. But, if yes, WOW!
Thanks for all the great stuff you make. Take care.
