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.


S4PE, Notepad++. Thanks to Snaitf for the tip and Inge for the wrappers. More discussion of flags and stuff here.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Basic Download and Install Instructions:
1. Download: Click the File tab to see the download link. Click the link to save the .rar or .zip file(s) to your computer.
Read the upload description for installation instructions. If nothing else is specified, do the following:
No Extraction Required (Script Mods):
1. Cut and paste the .zip file(s) into your Mods folder
  • Windows XP: Documents and Settings\(Current User Account)\My Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\Mods\
  • Windows Vista/7/8/8.1: Users\(Current User Account)\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\Mods\
Script mods need to be placed directly in \Mods or one level below that (e.g. \Mods\Scripts) – sub-folders nested any deeper won’t work.
Extraction Required (Everything Else):
1. Use WinRAR (Windows) to extract the .package file(s) from the .rar or .zip file(s).
2. Cut and paste the .package file(s) into your Mods folder
  • Windows XP: Documents and Settings\(Current User Account)\My Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\Mods\
  • Windows Vista/7/8/8.1: Users\(Current User Account)\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\Mods\


Need more information?
  • Anyone can use both .rar and .zip files easily! On Windows, use WinRAR.
  • If you don't have a Mods folder, just make one.
  • Mod still not working? Make sure you have script mods enabled
