Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Update 11-26-09:

- Added Gwenke's Rotated Shiftable OMSPs

Update 11-08-04:

- Added Fairy Forest Pose OMSP

Update 09-13-10:

- Sims will no longer use the controller autonomously

Update 09-15-09:

- Bugfix: with some EPs installed, the objects on the OMSPs became invisible, too. This is fixed now.
Unfortunately this meant to return to the old technique, and so the changes are no longer preserved when you save the lot and re-enter it.
So you have to switch your OMSPs at least one time manually from visible to invisible via catalogue or design tool. After saving and re-entering a lot, the OMSPs always will flip back to your last manually chosen recolor, no matter if you have changed it with the controller.


Update 07-31-09:

- Added three OMSP Sets from SilentLucidity
- Added MATY Repository version of Ariffrazalins, JohnBrehaut1s and LordDarcys OMSPs by AmberDiceless
- Added german language

~

With this pinboard you can turn the visibility of OMSPs on your lot to visible or invisible.

The followig OMSPs are supported:

ariffrazalin
ariffrazalin
JohnBrehaut1
JohnBrehaut1
JohnBrehaut1
SilentLucidity
LordDarcy
Fairy Forest
Fairy Forest Pose OMSP
SilentLucidity
SilentLucidity
SilentLucidity
MATY Repository version of ariffrazalins, JohnBrehaut1s and LordDarcys OMSPs by AmberDiceless
Gwenke

To use it, just click on the pinboard and choose an option from the pie menu.





I tested it on four different computers (one of them was prehistorical ) with different installations and the AnyGameStarter, and everything worked fine.

If you have any problems, please let me know!
If you need some more OMSPs, feel free to contact me.

This is the pinboard of the mesh file, and there are five more recolors for different rooms (look at the attached pictures).
The attached Rar-file contains the meshpackage and all recolors.



Attention: If you just want to have the pinboard and you don´t need the OMSP functions, you can get a simple decorative object here.

Vertex Count: 140
Polygon Count: 134
Package-size: 1275 KB (because of the tons of new BHAVs)
Recolor-size: 176 KB

You can find it under decorative/wall hangings

This super cool. I hate blundering around trying to find the buggers when I'm trying to redecorate! It is such an awesome idea, and the object itself is quite nice to look at, too. I'd download that even if it didn't come with such awesome functionality. Thank you so much for taking the time to create this, and for sharing it.

Even without the nifty functionality, this item is handy as deco. Very nice pinboard.

Thanks!!

Because of you and this download, I have visited the Fairy Forest site. It has lots of beautiful things, but does not say what expansion packs are required. Since you are an uploader there, would you please ask if they would show that on their information pages? I don't have very many expansions, so some downloads won't work for me. I would like to know which ones I can use. Thanks for your time!

And I love the controller!
Thank you!

Hello hjkjr2,

the objects on Fairy Forest are all basegame compatible, except they have a special remark that an expansion pack is needed.
And for the bookshelves and TVs you can download different versions for different EPs.
But, in general, nearly every object is basegame compatible.

Thank you for the comment!

I had no idea that this was your first upload (here on MTS2), amazing!
I thought you had many due to the fine work of this one.
Again, awesome!

Question: Is it ok to place more than one on a lot? (any self conflicts?)

Oh, thank you!!! I just recently started using OMSPs, and just yesterday I was wishing for such a way to turn them visible/invisible. I haven't tried this item yet, but I will definitely be working with OMSPs tonight, and this is going to make it so much easier!
