Krampft Industries Value Counter Fixes

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 two minor fixes for the Krampft Industries Value Counter from base game. The first is a counter island to match the Value counter, which is slaved to the original Maxis counter for textures. It can be found under Surfaces -> Counters, and costs §140. Based on a counter template by Numenor (http://www.modthesims.info/showthread.php?t=124268).



The second is a mapping fix I made for the corner mesh of the original counter after noticing that it didn't want to play nicely with more detailed textures. This fix is a default replacement for that part of the object, and as such does not appear separately in the catalog or have a separate price; you will only see it when placing an arrangement of the Krampft Industries Value counter that causes the game to use the corner mesh.

Please note that you can only have one DR of any one item/item subset at a time.




Polygon Counts:
Counter Island: roughly 578 polys per mesh state (not including shadows), 2416 for entire package
Corner UV-Mapping Fix: 463 polys

Additional Credits:
Counter island is based on a counter template by Numenor (http://www.modthesims.info/showthread.php?t=124268).

Thank you so much! I always wondered why they didn't include a counter island to this set in the first place since they did with most of the other counters.

Yay! I have been waiting for this for years. Now I'm going to have to re-reinstall my Sims 2 games. Wayyyy back in the day, back when you first developed the Repository Technique, I pm'd you requesting this very creature (I believe it was at another site). You replied that you couldn't promise anything but would look into it. I'm really impressed that you did it. I do realize you had 5,000 (or more) requests for this very thing, but I'm going to half-way pretend you remembered just.for.me. (the very special [snow]flake that I am)! Thank you! You've got me durn-near giggly.

Actually, posting your brilliant creation here is incredibly impressive, and not only because of your mad meshing-artistry skills. Thank you.

This is great! Why oh why did they never give us an island for this counter in the game? I could never figure that out. Many thankyous!
