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.
UPDATE 19th OCTOBER 2011: Updated with new file fixed to work with patch 1.26/Pets, thanks to Grant Hess's RigFix. The new file is on the Download page, with a filename beginning with PETS. The new file is NOT backwards-compatible, so if you don't have Pets or are not going to update with the 1.26 patch, please use the old version. New file contains both the dining table and chair.

The Sims 3 really needs medieval content, and having already supplied a few items of medieval headwear, I've now converted the lovely medieval dining table and chairs from The Sims 2:

These items will be found in the customary location in Buy Mode, under Dining Room/Dining Tables and Dining Room/Dining Chairs. The table costs 650 simoleons and the chairs are 150 simoleons each.

Great for humble medieval meals of burnt gruel as below, as well as for more elaborate feasts.

(Crossbow back accessory by MelissaMel at www.toolregame.com, which has unfortunately been down for some time.)

Closeups of the table and the beautiful carving on the chairs, as well as a couple of recolour examples, are below. The table and chairs retain a darkish wood texture, so colouring them such light colours as white or bright pink is not possible, but rich colours and patterns look really nice on them:
(Note: For some reason, both of my sets of medieval furniture show two recolourable channels in CaST - there is actually just one channel, the top one. Please disregard the other 'phantom' one.)

Thank you for looking and I hope your merrie olde medieval simmies will enjoy this set!


INSTALL INSTRUCTIONS:

Unzip the .zip files, and copy the .package files to your Mods\Packages folder. If you don't have a Mods\Packages folder and/or don't know how to install .package files, please see full instructions here: http://www.modthesims.info/wiki.php...g_Package_Files

Polygon Counts:
Table: 2248
Chair: 1172

Additional Credits:
A HUGE thank you to HugeLunatic for extremely helpful advice on assigning joints for objects, without which advice, as I am a total newbie at object making, I'd still be stuck with my objects disappearing as soon as the sim uses them. Thankfully, this table and chairs will now not disappear upon use!

Made with s3pe, S3OC and Sims 3 Object Tool.

Tested with Delphy's Sims 3 Dashboard for 'Blue Lot Syndrome' and came up clean.

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.

Lovely shape and size of table! Shame it cant be coloured white/off white as that would go perfectly in my blue/white themed dining room!

Thank you for the nice comment! It's not me who has the talent, though, it was Maxis for making such lovely items for The Sims 2 - all I did was make it useable in The Sims 3!

Just wanted to let you know that the new Pets patch dining chair makes the cat freeze when it goes to jump up onto it. You have to resetsim to un freeze the cat. Seems to be happening with a lot of the dining chairs.
Thanks for a great item though I am still using it even with the bug Love this whole set!
