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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
UPDATE: I think I've fixed the conflicting EP problem that was crashing at least one person's game. If you've had issues with this set in your game, PLEASE RE-DOWNLOAD the newly updated files and remove the old files from your "Downloads" folder. If not, it's not necessary. Thanks, everyone!

Well, I took some time off, but today, I'm pleased to offer you the latest addition to the Homey Touches furnishings collections--the Homey Touches Dining Room Set.

The set comes complete with 7 new meshes: one, two, and three tile tables, chair, pendant light, tulips, and candleholder.

Continuing with the theme from the bedroom set , the table, chairs, and light have beautiful touches of wrought iron that works well in both formal and casual settings.

I'm including UV Maps for anyone interested in recoloring the set (which I would loooove!)

As always, enjoy!

Polygon Counts:
Tulips in Vase--1139
Pendant Light--1443
Dining Chair--1140
One Tile Table--1034
Two Tile Table--1106
Three Tile Table--2090

Additional Credits:
Many thanks to Numenor for helping with the "grabability" of the light. I bow to you!

And, of course, thanks to all you wonderful modders and mod-enablers who make this community such a great place to play!

sweetswami77, I wanted to know what EP you cloned it from. I tried to add it to my game and it crashed when the game was loading. I have Base, Uni, NL & OFB.

Hi, Goth1ka! All you need is NL for the one tile table. Everything else is cloned from base game objects, so I'm not sure what could be causing the problem. Maybe you could try removing the file for the one tile table and trying it again? I'm not sure what else to suggest. Sorry. :o(

I have NL and the basegame too...hmmm Thats unusual. I can look into it with SimPE and see if I can find the conflict for you.



I checked your profile here and it says you have alot of stuff packs other EPs listed. This could be the reason it crashed on me. Sometimes making a new basegame object will think to include data from other stuff packs if you have them in your game already.

What I could do is maybe re-add your mesh and textures to some new cloned basegame objects so I can use your tabels and chairs in my game. That would work. Thankyou so much again

I just have to have them, lol

Let me know how it goes. I'd hate to think you couldn't play it in your game because I'd screwed something up. :o<

sweetswami, the glass is not visible in the viewer of the Geometric Data Container. I haven't worked with glass yet to know what causes this but I do recall having a problem like this before with a floortile that would conflict with Homecrafter Plus, it would crash the program. I hope this will be of help. Also check with Numenor again and see if he can find the conflict. Still a great product sweety

Goth1ka, I posed this question on the Object Creation & Texturing forum, but I haven't received a response yet. I didn't think it was an issue because all glass top tables (including those from the game) show up with opaque glass in the GMDC view, not just the ones I've made changes to. If they aren't supposed to, could it be an issue with SimPE? I'll keep looking into it. Thanks for all your help and patience!

WOW!!! looks great!@!
