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.
hey all

this chair is my first Sims2 object. I have build it from scratch using XSI and converted it using Wes_h's exporter for milkshape.

it is not completly finished, I still need to make a some better UV-coordinats and make it recolourable. I also need to fix the shadow, it still uses the shadow from the Glassic chair .

poly-count: 2032 verts: 1181

This is the first object in a scandinavian collection i'm planning to do

I'm looking forward to getting some feedback.

update3 23/04-05: Sorry for the wait, I finally got around to update the chair for University. Put the new file in your download folder and remeber to take the old one out, it should work with the old recolours.

Update2, 7/02-05: finally I got the color options added! to get it download the new file, it also comes with extra colors, each of the 5 files in the color-package adds an extra color. If you would liketo add more colors please do so, and please share if they are any good :D. I do not want to find this object on any paysites, other than that, feel free to destribute it, just remember where you got it from.

last remark: you can't use the extra colors without the new chair

Update1, 7/02-05: the chair have been remodeled to add the thin pillow on the seat.
The UVs have been fixed to give a nice and smooth mapping. Because I still haven't figured out how to make it recolorable it still only comes in one color, but this time it is brown leather. If someone could tell me where to find some tutorials on how to make an object recolorable it would be highly Appreciated.

The new package will replace the old one, so for now you have to choose between the brown and the red chair, that is why I have left the old file availeble for download.

thats it for now

very nice Thank you

Your chairs are nicely done

But, they do have the same problem I have with my new mesh/recolorable objects.

I can go into the "design" mode where you can change object's colors, and recolor them with your other colors, and this works correctly.

But the problem is that in design mode, I can also delete object colors. This includes the color of the original object, and this will cause the game to crash.

I don't know what the fix is for this.

[QUOTE=divadice29]ta539, to get rid of the original maxis made colors you need to reconstruct the package to use its own colors take a look at Numenors very helpful post on the subject, that is what I did, it is a bit tricky, but worth the trouble
when you have done this you can make new colors with object workshop.

Thanks divadice29! "ARIGATO!!"

I'll try and when my sofa is completed I'll upload!

Um, *nods and rubs chin like a sim looking at art* very nice. I saw something similar over at Sunair Sims. Not exact, mind you, but similar. I like your design better for some unpinpointed reason. (I liked the one at Sunair too) I think the sunair one is a dining chair. Is yours a living chair?
Cheers to the good work.

I'm just going around today asking creators of objects I love to update their stuff for the EP if they aren't or if nobody has asked already.
So please can you make this EP-compatible? SimPE says it isn't although I don't have the Expansion yet, I will soon

EDIT**Has anyone tried this with the EP? Does it work??

The collection is still in the making I am sorry it is taking me so long to make more objects but I am currently finishing my BA degree. Hopefully I will get some time soon to finish the objects I am working on right now (more than 10 I think).

I LOVE IT! I'm a modern furniture nut... I had so much for TS1 and now I can start building a TS2 collection! And I'm incredibly excited you're doing the Swan chair/sofa next; they're both so lovely, and I never had them in TS1. Keep up the superb work!
