It's done! A table, 2 higher chairs and a sink. The table and chairs are slaved to Buggybooz Kitchen Basic, so you must have the master mesh(es?) from that set for the table and chairs to work in your game. The sink is a stand-alone, it's not slaved to anything. It's just the sink- nothing else and will place against a wall if you want to use it by itself.
The end result looks pretty much like the WIP pic I showed. The biggest difference is that this is a table, not an island and the sink is all by itself with no cabinet. Otherwise, put together the whole thing looks the same and was probably the best way to do this. :)
A 2x2 table
2 chairs - they are Natalie's barstools, with her permission I "converted" them to dining chairs
To put the sink in the table:
Place the table where you want it first. Then, using moveobjects on and
setquartertileplacement on OR boolprop snapobjectstogrid false place the
sink in the hole in the table. You MUST use these cheats or the sink
won't place into the table. I tried to get around having to use cheats -
that might be why the original sink mesh stopped working right. So
please remember to use the cheats!
There are NO slots added to the table.
Table meshes have slots already-
from my testing, you can still place things in the slots on the sink end
with no problems. If your sims won't place their plates on the table to
eat- you might have deco in a slot that's stopping them. Remove it and
see if they'll eat. (Or just use OMSPs to place deco!) *In my testing,
putting deco in any of the slots on the "eating end" of the table
prevented my sims from putting their plates down on the table to eat.
They just sat in the chair holding their plate and ate that way. That's
why I said "just use OMSPs". CC created as a centerpiece should be
okay.* If you have Nightlife or above, there is a mod that will allow
most small MAXIS objects to be placed in those slots - Maxis Centerpiece as Centerpiece
The chairs: Like I said, they're modified barstools. The animations
aren't perfect- sims will step up slightly into the air to sit and drop
down to stand up. The rest of the animations are fine and a taller table
needed taller chairs! You CAN use regular chairs but the eating
animations will be wrong because of the height difference. Barstools
work fine- but since this is a table, they won't scoot into the table.
From my testing, putting game barstools 1/4 tile closer to the table
with cheats still let the sims sit on the stools. Any closer got me
stompy feet, lol.
Everything is basegame compatible. If you have any problems with any of
this, please let me know! Hope your sims enjoy their new furniture!
EDIT: I didn't notice that adult sims clip through the back of the Shakerlicious chair. That's been updated. If you already downloaded, just download the updated chair and let it replace the one in your download folder. If you're just now downloading, the updated chair is now in the full download.
