This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
I was playing an artist sim and thought it'd be nice to be able to paint anywhere, always wondered why they hadn't included something like a sketchbook.

I've modified the original EA easel to make it portable. You buy it as if it were the normal one and then you can put it in the inventory and place it in any lot.

Just note that you can't interact with it from the inventory, you have to place it in the ground and then use it.

It works exactly like the original one, and also you can start painting anywhere, take the unfinished painting with you and then finish it at home and viceversa.



Poly counts same as EA original

Hope you enjoy it.

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.

I love this mod, but it doesn't seem to be working quite right for me...

My canvas is backwards. lol. Other than that slight annoyance, she can still paint, drag off the paintings, and cart around the easel, so I'm happy. Just thought I'd share in case you had any idea why this is happening?

Also, I have all expansion packs. The only other mods I use are nointro and velocitygrass_unlocked_simport_rewards.

Thanks!

I have the same problem as wyrren. The canvases are upright ever since I installed a patch. An update of this mod would be great!

Sames happening here but I don't have those mods and only ambitions, generations, supernatural. I believe what someone else said is probably true, its probably caused by the patch.
