This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
More rocks made available for Build/Buy.

Part 1 is available here.



Some of these have variations with slightly different meshes/textures; I've put those in the same thumbnail and added colour swatches to avoid catalogue clutter. All of them have in-game prices that scale roughly by size (between §50 and §1.600, see list below).This is done by setting UnkCommon03 to 0x80, the Build/Buy flag to 0x01, adding 0x00000230 (Build_Rock) to the CatalogueTagList, adjusting the price/thumbnail/colour list as desired and adding a custom STBL. Prices are edited in the OBJD too, so sims will get their §§§ back when selling these.

All of these have their original footprints; you will sometimes need the moveobjects cheat to place them. Some of the larger ones do not have a footprint/bounding mesh; sims will route through those. This can be avoided by putting fences underneath -- I didn't want to change it since it's actually quite nice to be able to overlap them and make different rock formations that way (without having to use movebjects).



Contents:
  • 1 x Decorative Stones – 50
  • 4 x Small Rock – 75 / 85
  • 1 x Small Boulder – 80
  • 3 x Mid-Sized Rock – 90
  • 2 x Mid-Sized Boulder – 115 / 120
  • 1 x Group of Stones – 140 (sorts with existing stones from part 1, or on its own if you don't have that)
  • 2 x Small Cliff – 180 (same shape, slightly different colours; sort in the same thumbnail, together with small cliff from part 1)
  • 2 x Large Boulder – 390 (same shape, slightly different colours; sort in the same thumbnail with boulder from part 1)
  • 2 x Large Cliff – 480 (same shape, slightly different colours; sort in the same thumbnail)
  • 1 x Large Rock – 680
  • 1 x Rock Formation – 840
  • 2 x Very Large Boulder – 1.300 (same shape, slightly different colours; sort in the same thumbnail with boulders from part 1)
  • 1 x Large Rock Formation – 1.600 (sorts in the same thumbnail with rock formations from part 1)


All catalogue screenshots are taken with both part 1 and this upload in game.


Note to builders: These should show up fine in lots when people don't have this mod, but the custom names/descriptions/prices/flags will be missing (i.e. they will have "***DEBUG***" for the name and description, cost §0 and won't be in the catalogue).

Love these, thanks! But I noticed that both Liberated Rocks 1 & 2 have the same file ("pbox_liberated-rocks-02") attached. Unless the issue is on my end...

Those are not the same file, are they? "pbox_rocks_liberated-02.package" (Part 1) vs. "pbox_liberated-rocks-02.package" (Part 2).

I'm aware the first one is named a bit stupidly (I guess I named it like that because it was the second version of that package or something), but I don't want to change it now because that might lead to people redownloading it (thinking it's updated) and ending up with two identical files with different names =P ..

I get a call script failed when I try to change the color of the Small Cliff. I did not test other rocks that way but I guess some may have the same issue since the new patch some CC have that error when trying to change the color.

No, that's an old issue -- it's been like that ever since the game was released. Maxis have recently announced they're looking into fixing it on their side but I don't know if that will also change how these objects behave -- they are technically not the same objects, so it's no surprise the design tool doesn't work on them. It would surely be more desireable to get a "This object cannot be designed" message rather than the script error, but that's not something that I have any influence on.

Ah ok thanks for the reply. I didn't know that. Hopefully they fix that because it's pretty lame indeed.
