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.
These are single slot surfaces which match the height of EA's bed, two dresser heights, and the height of EA's bed pillows. They have no footprint and can be placed without a cheat although, of course, you can do more with them using placement cheats.

I've updated the OMSP's with the patch EA has released for WA users following the release of Late Night. They have been tested in my newly patched WA game and work fine. I don't have Late Night so I can't test them there. If anyone has a problem with the OMSP's please let me know in the thread.



They use Buzzler's VanishingObjects Scripts available here: http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=406614. This script allows them to be made invisible while in play mode and visible when you switch into buy mode. So if you want to change where they're placed it's easy to do.

All you need to do to use the script package is install it in your mods folder the way you install any other package.

You will need the Scripts Package in order for these to turn invisible in your game. Let me say that again, you will need the Scripts Package linked to above in order for these to turn invisible in your game.

Each costs $1 and can be found in Buy/Surfaces/Miscellaneous. They cast no indoor or outdoor shadow and are made of glass so you can see your object better while placing things. They stick up above the surface of the corresponding object in order to make it easier to grab them.

The pictures below show objects placed using them without a cheat. The EA potted plants are on the original slots.






There is a thumbnail picture below which shows what they look like when visible:

Thank you to Buzzler for making the script which finally allows us to have functional OMSP's for Sims 3 and for keeping the script updated for new Expansions and patches.

Thank you also to everyone in the Meshing & Object Creation forums here who has helped me learn to mesh

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.

Sorry all...Buzzler just PM'ed me, conscientious coder that he is, and told me about the problem. I'll fix it.

ETA: Fixed for the LN patch. Sorry it took awhile...I had issues with starting my WA game after I got the new patch. I had to do the whole de-install/re-install thing before I could test these to make sure I had changed them correctly.

Asiashamecca, are you sure you have the new version put in your downloads folder and have removed the old version? I've tested these in my own LN game and they work fine. Are you having similar problems with other things that are enabled with the vanishing script or just these OMSP's?

Hey OM... thank you for the response. I was just coming back to delete my post as I did a search and found an older version in the muck of my downloads folder. I am a noob (and a dunce) and I heartily apologize.
