This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Updated for Patch 1.26 / Pets EP Will work with pre-pets patches as well.

Newshoes has created a tipsy add-on for the OMSP that is available in the thread Tipsy OMSP A great add-on to allow objects to lay over on their sides when placed on the OMSP. Very Cool Stuff(tm)!

Have you ever wanted to place an object somewhere in your house, and just couldn't make it fit?

What you need is an OMSP -- A One More Slot Package object

This allows you to place objects on the OMSP during buy mode. Then when you switch to play mode, the OMSP becomes invisible.

It appears in the Surfaces --> Misc.

To use the object, place it on the floor. It will appear as a red/white checkered object. Next, move it up/down using the menus.

To activate the menu hold Shift + Ctrl and Click on the object.

Next place the object of your choice on top of the OMSP. It helps to move the camera to where you are looking nearly straight down at the floor.

Now, you can move and rotate the OMSP to place the object where you want it to appear. Holding ALT down while dragging or rotating allows you to move it off of the grid.

Update Information
20 Dec 2010 -- Added non-English string tables
21 Dec 2010 -- Fixed corrupted strings
23 Jan 2011 -- Added French and German Translations

Note to translators.... This Mod uses fairly simple text entries. If you wish to contribute a translation, please feel free to PM me.

There are several potential issues with this object.
1) Currently it cannot detect if you try to move it below the floor, or above the ceiling! If you do so, it will disappear from sight.
2) Large Kitchen appliances do not work on the OMSP. They fall back to floor level as soon as you place them.
3) Placing a SIM on the OMSP works, but DO NOT allow them to step off. They will fall off the world and you will have to teleport them back.
4) It may be necessary to turn the MoveObjects cheat to On to place some items.

Conflict Information
This is a totally new object. It should co-exist with any other custom content.

Policy Information
This object was created by granthes for the community.
Feel free to include it in any lots that you upload.
There really isn't any reason to recolor the object, since it is invisible in play mode.
Please don't claim this as your own creation, give credit back where it belongs.

Polygon Counts:
Vertices = 68, Polygons = 29

Additional Credits:
I would like to thank the usual suspects for their tools and knowledge: Inge and Peter Jones for s3oc, s3pc, etc. and help with using them.
Thanks to Jynx for help with the mesh.
Also, thanks go to orangemittens, sunhair for the inspiration for this project and to Scratch, Inge, Shivar, Srikandi and ingeli for help with testing.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Thanks a lot!! this is my core mod now!! but i've got a problem which i cannot choose to move up/down 1 & 2 cm, i can only move up/down 10cm & 50cm. it's not really bothering me much, but you know, sometimes i just click it wrong by mistake, and the object will just disappear. Does anybody know how to fix it? if not, it's still ok for me, it's still an amazing mod.

I use to use this all the time, but it appears that sometime after one of the most recent Sims 3 updates it no longer shifts up and down rendering is virtually useless. Is there any possibility that this will be fixed in the near future?

6. Adjust height

Other problems, I don't know how to solve.

Thank you so much, I didn't knew how to use it. Now I do and I can finally use it in my game.

This is definitely one of my favorite mods now! (I'm on patch 1.69)

I accidentally clicked "up 1m" instead of "up 1cm" and was startled by the result. I'm more careful now. I have tested each of the adjustments, and they work fine.

I have discovered more benefits than just placing decor. I have used it to sit toddlers on desks and tables for family pictures. When placing several objects on a counter, the grid on this helps line them up straight. I can put one on top of another, then raise them to different heights if I want to make sure things line up vertically (like a cover on a dish). Very useful!

This is basically my fave mod and ever since the last update, it no longer works. it's loaded, but I can no longer find it in my buy menu. This makes me ridiculously sad. Are there any plans to update, or are we just out of luck?

You are out of luck, from what I know, granthes will not be updating this for a long time.

Ok so im an idiot.
i cant figure out how to get this to work :S
i've installed it ofc,
(for testing i used the baluster rail fence, and the potted perennials (the items used in the screenshots)
i placed the fance, (that worked)
i placed the red and white checkered box under it (that worked)
i rised the height so that it had the top of the fence poking out of the checkered box (same as the screenshot)
i tried to place the plant on the fence/red-white box (nothing)
tried to place the pot on the red-white box (worked) , then tried to move it into the fence (didn't work)
tried to place the red-white box with the plant on it, risen it then attemped to place the fence thought it (didn;t work)
