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.
Dining for Four is a small collection of base game 1x2 tile tables made smaller to fit in a 1x1 tile for smaller homes.

Each table is a half size of the original and costs half the amount. It has all the same default textures as the 2-tile version.
  • Found in Surfaces/Dining
  • Each has two CAST-able Channels - same as original
  • Club §145
  • Quaint §105
  • Modern §225








Made with Base game and Patch 1.7

Polygon Counts:
Club 500
Quaint 744
Modern 324

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

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.

Oh, awesome! I end up using 1-tile dining tables a lot more than those 1x2 and 1x3 monstrosities that EAxis apparently loves so much.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. The first thing I do when building a kitchen is curse at the lack of small tables. The big ones are so unwieldy and I love little houses. You rock!

I was so excited to see these dinning sets, I immediately downloaded them and put them into my game. But big disappointment they do not show up. Probably because I have not added the latest 1.7 patch. I had so much trouble with that patch, I had to completely uninstall and reinstall my game. I refuse the patch until they fix all the problems. So I guess I am just out of luck. But I am a little confused I thought that if it said that it was base game compatible then it should work whether you have the patch or not (obviously I am wrong) Perhaps HugeLunatic could explain if this is the reason that it doesn't show up in the game and if there is any thing that can be done to make it compatible without the dreaded patch.
Me? Sarcastic? Never.

There was definitely something changed in the way the game handles objects, both custom and it's own with the 1.7 patch. This patch gave the ability to recolor stairs and fences, and I think also added basements. My game was running stable with the 1.7 patch prior to installing WA just a week or so ago. I did post the items were made with the 1.7 patch since it made considerable game changes.

If I can find out how to change this to not require the patch within the package then I will. Right now the only way would be to remake the package, and I don't even know if using an older version of the tools would work since my game is patched.

Great to have 1x1 tables that already match EA chairs--also being able to keep decor when the family grows
