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)

You can find it under decorative/wall hangings

Impressive! Even the MATY repository versions included! I was planning to go ask for that, but now I won't have to

Very much obliged, for the update as well as the alert.

I downloaded this yesterday and the first post says that the object is compatible with SilentLucidity's new up-shiftable OMSPs. I used the small version (purple) of those OMSPs and when I used the controller to hide the OMSPs, it also hid the objects on top of the OMSPs so that all my deco disappeared. Thankfully the make visible function worked I ran the HCDU and no conflicts with any of the mods I use were reported. I did not try the other two types of OMSP that are also in the download file, only the small, but not the regular and not the coffee table (side table? can't remember) OMSPs that also come with that set. It is possible that the disappearing deco is only a problem for the small OMSPs and not for all of them.

Uh! That´s weird. I´m going to check this.
Thanks for the hint!

EDIT: I checked this, and it seems to depend on the EPs installed. So I fixed this by returning to the old "ChangeMaterial"-Method.
Now objects on the OMSPs will no longer become invisible with the OMSPs, but unfortunately this means that the changes are no longer preserved when you save and re-enter the lot.
I´m working on a solution, but until then, you have to change the visibility of the OMSPs at least one time manually by catalogue or with the design tool.
After saving and re-entering a lot, the OMSPs always will convert back to the last manually chosen recolor.

This is a pretty useful object for most of my lots, but is there any way to disable autonomous interaction with it? I had a toddler turn all my OMSP's visible with it when I wasn't controlling her once.

*LOL* I´m going to check this.

EDIT: Okay, I changed this. I´m playing with free will off in most cases, so I didn´t happen to me.

Hallu. Ich weiß das du Deutsch kannst, ich bin Nico:3 aus dem Simforum! Ich weiß nicht was der Download bringen soll, und bin nicht die hellste Birne in der Sache was Englisch an geht. Ich würde mich über eine Erklärung freuen!

@julsfels, Hi, I love this, thank you so much, and the textures are really beautiful. I have one on most of my lots. At first, I thought it was working great, but now I see that the OMSPs are reset to visible every time I leave the lot. Can you tell me is there something I should do to fix it? I'm running UC on Windows 7. HCDU doesn't find anything.

They'll be reset to the last recolor you set it to via buy mode or design tool, so if you want invisible to stay on reset, do this: Buy your OMSP invisible (or buy it visible and design tool it invisible). Then buy the controller and turn OMSPs visible. Decorate how you want. Then use the controller to turn OMSPs invisible again. Since the last recolor you selected via buy mode/design tool was the invisible one, it should stay invisible whenever you reload the lot.
