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.
I was SO happy when wardrobes were finally reintroduced into the game series with Supernatural. What I wasn't so chuffed with was the lack of variety.
In response, I decided to take on the task of converting some TS2 wardrobes for use in TS3.

So without further ado I present to you the first of my conversion attempts, the Touch of Teak Plymouth Armoire

It comes in three presets. The first is based on the catalogue image of the original in TS2 and the subsequent designs are of my own imagining with a little help from the peeps in #Create.

It has four CASt-able channels which consist of the body, doors, legs, and handles. Mapping can be seen in the screenshot below.

It costs 812 simoleons, as per the original, and can be found under Storage>Dressers in Function sort or Bedroom>Dressers in Room sort.

The wardrobe doors are fully animated and the handles have been adjusted so that Sims hold them in the correct location. Sims can still woohoo inside the wardrobe and witches are still able to upgrade the wardobe to open a magic portal.
There are a few things to note though in relation to Sims entering the wardrobe for either of the above occassions.
The clothing inside the wardrobe is not animated. When all of the clothing was rigged it had an annoying tendency to stick out of the wardrobe sides at odd angles and as the coathanger hooks are merely painted on to the rail, it gave the appearance of them being broken.
Sims' feet sink into the wardrobe base when entering and exiting from woohoo. This is simply because the internal base of the wardrobe is higher than on either of the Supernatural originals from which it was cloned. There is a picture in the attachements to illustrate.

With all that being said I hope that you and your Sims find this conversion useful and pleasing to look at.

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.
