UPDATED: Atwood Dining - Content Collection Addon





Update 22/02/2017: When attempting to fix the display cabinet, the tuning name was changed to one that required GTW. This has now been fixed for those without that EP. 
Update 9/02/2017: Some people were reporting issues with seating positions and actions failing with the anemone round table, it has since been tested and fixed. Please redownload either the individual file or the merged package. 
Updated 21/01/2017: With the toddler patch breaking a few things, I have taken the opportunity and gone through and updated my sets to fix issues and generally improve on some things. Here, I have updated all seating with tags and toddler rigs, and also fixed the display cabinet so you can grab items from behind the glass easily.
Update 1/10/2016: It was brought to my attention that the hippeastrum vase did not have a unique footprint (was linked to calla vase from Myra Living), this has now been fixed. You can either download the updated merged file, or grab the individual file at the SFS link at the bottom of the post.

With the addition of round tables with backyard stuff allowing me to take the rig and slot resources without having to tediously make my own, I can do what I have always planned to do: a round table in the style of mt anemone tables from my Atwood Living collection. So in order to make it a little more fleshed out, I added a few display pieces and stuff specific to a dining room. This is not a perfect match as my wood tones have improved since then, so have my fabric choices, but it still goes very well with Atwood, as well as any of my other custom content.

Due to the length of these posts and for ease of updating, you can find the download and info under the cut.

A few notes on this set in regards to usability and features:

  • The round dining table does not need Backyard Stuff to work. There is no carryover of the meshes at all, only the rig and slot locations. 
  • To use all slots on objects, be sure to have MoveObjects cheat turned on
  • Using quarter-tile placement is helpful when decorating too. Turn on by pressing F5
  • The butterflies in the terrarium are animated. Be aware, at some angles the effect doesn't look like its behind glass. This is common for effects and its just a compromise for the design
  • With the display cabinet, once you place things behind the glass, you need to zoom in to make the object fade out to pick up items or style them. Again, this is a game limitation. Fixed with Jan 23 update
  • To get the most out of decor items, be sure to use the enlarge shortcut to give size variations
  • The vases have linked textures to version 01, and same with the chandeliers are all linked to the short height. The small canvas is linked to the large size, and the large egg is linked to the small size. Be sure to have those in-game or the others will not work. 
The Build/Buy items feature:
  • basegame compatibility
  • non-default
  • 42 meshes in total with between 10 and 36 colour/style options:
  • find items easily using phrase "Atwood" in search bar (try this tutorial to easily find my sets)
  • style (found under "contemporary" tag) and colour filter compatible
  • custom thumbnails

    1. Looks like I didn't clone the base object properly. I did use my Calla Vase from Myra Living but I like sets to be independent of one another. So I have fixed the package so it now hase a unique footprint. You can download it individually at SFS, or if you have a merged package from MF or SFS. They have now been updated.

    1. Miral commented just above you told me about that issue which i have subsequently fixed. So if you haven't redownloaded please do so. If you are still having issues, let me know which file you downloaded and any messages that come up when you try to place.

    1. There could be a number of reasons. Did you extract the archive file? Is your game up-to-date? Is your mods folder correctly set up? Best bet is check out the link on my menu bar up top with gives some helpful links on installing content.

  8. Hi! Thank you for all your beautiful content. I've literally downloaded them all! Just a comment: I've been having problems with the dining table long before the update. It seems that once my sims sit around it and finish their plates, they can't reach them anymore. When I click on them, the only action that comes up is "trash" and I'm forced to clean them up manually. Hope this helps solve any issues!

    1. I have experienced this, but I am not entirely sure its a cc bug since it doesn't happen all the time. If I find a solution to the issue I will be sure to update. I did find the plates are cleanable if your sim is standing rather then sitting though, that might help you.

  10. I adore all of your work! I'm in the process of downloading them all. Sadly though I have noticed that in this pack I get a "Script Call Failed" error whenever I try to place the display cabinet. I have tried re-downloading the pack to see if it was an error on my part but so far I have no solution. I know you have made recent fixes according to the lighting fixtures that weren't working. Is there a possibility you could help me out with fixing this problem?

    1. That is a rather odd object to have a script call error on. It is basegame but i am wondering if the tuning may be an issue. Do you by any chance not own GTW? I chose a retail tuning ID which I believed was independent of game packs, but it might not be.
      Also, did you download the merged or individual packages?

      Delete
    2. No, I don't have GTW. I only own the basegame other than the holiday pack that is free. And I originally downloaded the merged package, but my second attempt was the individual packages; the same error is on both.

      Delete
    3. you not having GTW is probably why. I will see about getting an update out for the weekend that fixes the issue.

  11. Have you fixed the display cabinet yet?

    1. It could be a number of things. Check the "Installing Content" option on the menu at the top of the blog and read through there to see if anything helps.

  13. Hi. When my sims leave a plate or cup on the dining table, they are unable to pick it up. when I click the items on the table, it doesn't give me the option to wash it, and says that there is no trashcan available, even though there is.

    1. do you have the most recent update to the file?

  14. I am unable to place table settings on the Anemone table introduced with the Parenthood pack. I have asked adrew at sims4studio about this and he said it had to do with the table having a custom tuning file.

    1. That would be correct. If EA added new functionality to tables the tuning file would need updating. This is why i would have preferred EA to make the table basegame to avoid this constant updating, but alas, they didn't do that. I will add it to my list of stuff to do when i get some free time from work and get motivated enough to complete these little projects of mine.
