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.
Updated for Pets and patch and tested in game

This is a modular system of my couch. There are eight elements that you can combine in different ways. The two oneSeats are clones of chairs. The smaller are adopted to the grid and the wider is used to make chairs but can be combined with the other parts also. To place the corners, you must use "moveObjects on" and press down the alt key.
(Cheat: disableSnappingToSlotsOnAlt on / off)



You may also need these cheats if you construct other combinations.

The two oneSeat-pieces and the inner corner you will find among the chairs in the directory and the others iamong the loveseats and sofas.

Costs:

armRestsLeft: 101$
armRestRight: 102$
oneSeatBase: 103$
oneSeatBase: 103$
SofaInnerCorner: 104$
loveSeatBase: 105$
SofaCorner: 106$
sofaBase: 107$

Have fun


Polygon Counts:
both armrests: 596 vertices and 776 faces
both oneSeatBases: 578 vertices and 788 faces
sofaInnerCorner: 1509 vertices and 1660 faces
loveSeatBase: 1078 vertices and 1356 faces
sofaCorner: 971 vertices and 1340 faces
sofaBase: 1449 vertices and 1924 faces

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.

A word of caution to everyone. This sofa set is WAY out of date. I had to remove it from my mods folder because my Sims won't interact with it right anymore. It's a shame because I really love this modular sofa. Lisen, if you every have any free time, it would be great if you could get this to work with the latest patch.

Do you think you could update this for the latest patch 1.29? I finally got a computer that could handle being patched (and having this show up in the game), only to find out that it's not compatible. So disappointed.

However, it seems it's affected by 1.26 patch rig issue.

I really love this sofa set, however is is causing my game to crash. I had to remove it now my house isnt as cute anymore. Cant find another modular sofa that "fits" in my spaces where it was deleted. Please consider updating it to work with the latest expansion packs and patches.
Thanks, awesome work!
