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.

BENNO Coffee Table

As I was rummaging about looking for some missing textures for the BENNO TV I came across a coffee table that was never finished. I thought it was probably a bonus object I was just missing but I wasn't able to come up with anything doing a search. So I created the package and voilà!...a new coffee table for your sims!

Catalog Description
Adjustable shelf for storing newspapers, remote controls etc. that comes in a clear lacquered beech veneer.

Well, that's what you'd get if you shop at IKEA but lucky for you this is the Sims! Here, you'll get two additional veneers (birch and black-brown) and some extra slots for your clutter.

Lost & Found Object
The mesh and textures are Maxis but for whatever reason were never completed. I just added the missing pieces to create a working package.

Catalog Sort
Surfaces - Coffeetable - $170

It's also available using room sort under Study and Livingroom.

  • Base Game Compatible
  • Quarter Tile Placeable
  • Two additional center slots for a total of 4 slots.
  • Three finishes.

Polygon Counts:
Faces: 272
Vertices: 399

Additional Credits:
Maxis, SimPE, GIMP and MTS, of course. Special thanks to HugeLunatic, leesester and Echo for taking the time to answer my questions on the creator forums--not to mention the great tutorials.
