This makes it so that the base game tabletop TVs and small audio devices can be placed on side tables (not sure whether they go on fireplaces and dressers by default, but they now do that too). Kaboom Box, Grammyfone and InstaVision ( = the small flatscreen TV) will also go on shelves.

Because why wouldn't they?


Update 2014-12-16: Files updated for 1.3.18.1010. The "feetprint" package is not necessary any more now (only the other ones are) – you can use the bb.moveobjects cheat from now on to place the stuff that won't place otherwise. When re-downloading note the package has a new filename now (with version number) so make sure you delete the old one.

Update 2014-11-02: Added the Sea Captain's clock, it now also goes on shelves (separate .zip below).

Note to builders (2015-01-25): From what FakeHouses|RealAwesome posted here, downloaders still need this mod when you have used it for decorating a lot you upload, otherwise stuff on shelves will disappear. Maybe this will be fixed in some future patch (apparently just using bb.moveobjects has the same issue under some circumstances), we’ll see.




There are two packages attached below:


1. Placement:

This (electronics_basegame_placement.package) makes it so that the following devices will go on more surfaces:

Audio:
– Kaboom Box
– GrammyFone
– MiniBlaster

TV:
– Penguin Vision
– Been There Watched That
– Trusty Companion
– InstaVision
– InvisiView Tabletop
– GeniusVision Tabletop


The large TVs will only go on dressers off-center (which looks rather odd) since the slots on those are different from side tables. They look fine on side tables though (can't have one without the other).


2. Feetprint: -- obsolete




Compatibility:

Updated for 1.3.18.1010, see above.
Checked for differences in 1.2.16.10, the only change I can see is four new UNKS that are all 0 so should work fine.

I'm unable to use the game console in City Living with any mods (including this one) that alter televisions. I'm assuming there was something changed as far as how televisions are used.
I tracked my issue down to this mod (and others, as well as CC televisions)

I am having this problem as well.

I also cannot use the gaming console with any TV which was altered by this mod. It is a shame but unless this mod is updated, I believe the best course of action is to turn to "one more slot" surfaces which can be placed and then made invisible. The creator of this mod has not logged in for some time so that is probably the best way to go. :/

Soo... this mod will never be updated? Like is it dead? Kaput? Muerto?

As the game sees the modified TVs as a new object completely, the video game console from City Living will not work with this mod. Since the coding changed, can you fix this mod for City Living?
