Lap of Luxury Modern Chair as Desk/Dining Chair

I always thought it was a shame that you couldn’t use this chair at tables and desks, since it’s a very common style for dining chairs in real life. So this is an override of its COBJ resources, in order to make it behave like a working desk/dining chair and appear in the Dining Chair catalog category (it can still be found in Living Chairs as well).

I found that placing this chair at tables can sometimes be a bit fiddly. It helps if you use MOO and kind of hover the chair around the table until you find the spot where it “snaps” into place. But once placed into that slot, Sims are able to use it as they would any desk/dining chair. As you can see in the third picture, it looks a bit funny as Sims sit down or get up; their hand doesn’t really connect with the back of the chair and the shadows on the legs don’t move.

The download folder has a list of the resources I changed. Or click to see them all:

Big thank you to plasticbox, whose edit of the Cloud Chair demonstrated how to do this!

I used s4pe to make this.

Thank you, this is just perfect for my dining table. I hate most of the chairs that EA has for that. Thank you so much.

Compared to the animations used for the bookshelf, this one is barely noticeable. So nice to have these flexible!

Translate in english :
it reacts with another gamemod my game crashed, no lastexception, a black screen and Windows has stopped working. I reinstall my Sims, removed the mod here and everything works again, I do not know with what mod it conflicts I had just installed your mod when I had this concern, I had no other news. I have another model sitting on chair position, I do not know if it's a conflict with, there script lines that are already taken by another game mod, damage. I have other gamemods you, I never had to worry, all my mods are taken here on this site and I trust. I do not know if this is useful to you, but I liked you report this concern, good end of weekend

@heidi137 I believe the other chair mod you have could be plasticbox's (the Cloud chair). If so, I have that one too and am using both that one and mine without issue. Also, they're both made exactly the same way. I put a list of the resources I changed in the download folder, and it's also listed in a spoiler in the text, so you can check to see if you have another mod that changes this chair.

@heidi137

I didn't understand everything but it sounds like you found that the crashing was caused by another mod, right? Thanks for the update

No, I explained that I had a game mod that makes autonomous interactions and it is in one of these actions that I have been concerned, I had just put your mod and I thought it was him who had a conflict with others) Must say that autonomy is working on many lines of scripts, I have two game mods about sitting positions and chairs, it is possible that there was an overload on a line with a number of game mods that are active. I have never seen this before worry, I was surprised I have not retested your mod for now, I try to first understand where it came concern is to why I'm telling you, thank you for your listening

I was wondering if these chairs could be fixed? I love these, but my sims get routing fails when I command them to sit; they also will not sit autonomously!

22 I will give him the key to the house of David. When he opens doors, no one will be able to close them; when he closes doors, no one will be able to open them.
