This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
After the unexpected popularity of my "Useless Objects", I felt obliged to create more clutter that peeps can stuff their simhouses with. Well, these are even less useful, but maybe a little prettier.

The pack contains 9 objects. 3 more recolors of the magazine stack, 2 little duckies, 2 bunnies and 2 cars. The latter are cloned off the toys that are found in the kids' toybox. The duck is the one you can buy from the grocery store. Now they are all conveniently available for you from the Decorative/Misc menu in the catalog. 20§ each, magazines are 7§. Have fun!

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.

The cup and the glass will disappear after use though, like the objects they were cloned from.


Weird. My perfectionist sim couldn't resist it. Picked up the plates from the grouned, washed em, gone.

You saying plates? Which one you mean? I added non-interactable versions now to the previous download, replace the old ones if you want.

Hope the stoopid maid doesn't turf the bunny into the dishwasher like he did with your bowls that I put candles into.

Just don't leave the bunnies on the floor and they won't!
At least when I tested they didn't touch the ones on the table. But I might have to make non-interact version of this too I guess.

YAY!

I love you for all these clutter!

My home is going to look like it was really lived in!

But a brown duck? LOL!

Can we have a recolour that's like the logo of Cole-Haan (not sure what duck variety that was) But these are awesome. Hmmm. .. . Or a black velveteen bunny?

More clutter please?

Purdy please!

i love this cluttery goodness! but i have one question. is it just me, or do the bunnies move themselves? i decorated a bedroom with the little duckies and bunnies, and i noticed later that the bunnies i put on the table were now halfway across the room on the floor! i know it wasnt my sims, because the children are teens, and the adults were both at work, and the maid was not intrested in them before, so whats up? oh, and i've had them in the game for about a week now, and they have been on that lot for umm... half a sims week. [sorry this is so long!]

Oooo that's spooky! lol
Well if you're sure your sim family didn't touch it, then it must have been the maid. If the bunny is on the floor they pick it up and try to put away, but if there is no toybox they just drop it again. But you say it was on a table. My guess would be then, that you got a "childish" trait maid that day who played with the bunny a little. Unfortunately maids are not always the same, we get a different one every day so it's hard to track them :s

yeah thats probably the case. i also noticed the ducks never were moved, so whoever it was, likes rabbits a lot! but regardless, thanks for helping me unravel this mystery! it kinda makes for a good story too...

The magazines will not work in my game. I thought it might have been the fact that I had a default replacement to make them bigger but I tested taking yours out/leaving menaceman's in (game worked fine) and taking his out/leaving yours in (game stopped responding). This makes me sad because I was excited about having variety but it is not to be.

I think I've downloaded all of your clutter sets. I HATE having empty tables/desks/counters/etc. These are all perfect - thank you!
