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:

Fairy Forest
Fairy Forest Pose OMSP
MATY Repository version of ariffrazalins, JohnBrehaut1s and LordDarcys OMSPs by AmberDiceless

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

Oh, wow, thanks so much for this! It is such a pain to find the invisible ones, haha. No more trying to click it for an hour straight, yay!

P.S. I love your avatar, julsfels!

SilentLucidity's created a new set of OMSP's. Any plans to add this set to your object?

This doesn't seem to work on community lots. I can place the board on the lot, and my Sim who is visiting the lot can choose the option to make OMSPs invisible, but they stay visible. I'm using LordDarcy's OMSPs on a community lot.

I´m sorry for answering so late, but the last week I was in Austria on vacation, and I had no internet.

@ClicknPsycho: I usually have more than one on a lot, and I had no problems so far. If you only want to decorate rooms with the pinboard without using the functionality, the simple decorative object I linked to in the description may be interesting for you.

@wandersfar: I´m going to download SilentLucidity´s new OMSPs and add them to the Controller as soon as possible.

@Moxilator: Shame on me. Never tested it on community lots. I´m going to check this. Thanks for the hint!
EDIT: I just tested it on a community lot, and it worked fine in my game and a basegame-version with the AnyGameStarter. I´m going to send you a PM to find the problem.

@zoooeeee the controller should be under decorative -> wall hangings
@julsfels thanks for making the controller and even integrate it in such a great looking object (love the versatility that comes with all those recolors). unfortunately for some reason the osmps (i'm using the shiftable ones by silentlucidity (the ones with 3 different heights and angled shelves) revert to a visible status after leaving and re-entering the lot.

I haven't really started using OMSPs yet, but I just have to say - one of the boards has a LARP pamphlet on it... win.

I went to your site and found it truely amazing! Thank u so much for your wonderful wall shelf and the empty selfs, plus the OMSPs! They just made my sims house 10 times prettier and functional than before. Sincerely thanks!

Thank you so much for this! I tend to use a bunch of OSMPs in a lot and being able to turn them all on or off is a huge help, and much cheaper than recoloring all of them. XD

Just as a side note: I don't use OMSP's much, but I LOVE the pin boards themselves and would love to have them just as a basic object. If you ever feel the urge just remove the mod and just use them as a wall hanging, I'd be completely into that

It does not seem to work on apartment lots. Anyone else experience something like this?

I'm really hoping that you will add SilentLucidity's new OMSPs also. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw your creation. It is what I've been wishing for, for a long time. Thank you!

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I've been cursing at these OMSP's forever, when you can't click the thing to make it invisible? Well, now I won't have to

I don't want to seem impatient, but are we making any progress with that? It currently only works with the OMSPs that I want to get rid of

I've been using this in the game and I wanted to say how amazing this is. It's such a time saver I have so many OMSPs in my game. Thanks again!

I keep checking back to this thread also, to see if it's been updated with the latest OMSPs by SilentLucidity. They're the only ones I use now and it would be absolutely AMAZING if your mod would work with them.

I hope you will update. Thanks so much for offering this controller.

I'd tell you just how hard it was before this download to deal with OMSPs but I guess you already know the plight. Anyways thanks. And I second greeneyedsims' request. Update please?

Hello everybody,

I´m very sorry it takes so long to add SilentLuciditys new OMSPs, but I had very less time the last months - real life was stronger than me.

But next week I don´t have to work for two weeks, and this is on top of my TODO-list.

I also want to overwork the whole thing, because the repository-version from MATY is not supported, and I am still searching for a solution to fix the effect, that the changes with the controller are not permanent, when you save the lot and re-enter it.
I found a way to fix it when you turn the OMSPs from visible to invisible (which is, I think, the most important part), but I found no way to make a switch from invisible to visible permament.

@Selindley: There is already a simple decorative object. I´ve linked to it on the Overview-page.

EDIT 07-31-09: New version is now uploaded.
