“Modern TSM dressers?” I hear you say. “Nix u drunk?” I’m as sober as a judge, I assure you – but I’m not so sure about the good folks at EA.
You see, when I was converting the dressers before, I found something strange. Mixed in with the medieval ones were four decidedly modern dressers, with decidedly modern clothes in their drawers. One of them looked exactly like the Werkbunnst Medium Stonewood Dresser dresser from AL; the other three, I didn’t recognise, not from TS2, anyway. I did recognise that they definitely didn’t belong in a medieval game, though – and apparently EA did, too, because they’re nowhere to be found in the TSM catalogue. Yeah. Don’t ask me, I just work here. 😛
There was nothing wrong with them, though, the meshes and textures were good and had even been rigged for animation… so I thought “why not?” and converted them along with the others. (Three of them, anyway; I skipped the one that looked exactly like the AL Werkbunnst Medium dresser, since it looked exactly like the AL Werkbunnst Medium dresser.)
Just like their medieval friends, these dressers have five slots each – and they are of course animated as well. They are also low poly, with a maximum of 415 polys/tile.
Since I had no TSM catalogue description to work with, and have no imagination whatsoever, I’ve simply given these dressers their TSM file names.
The first one is the Mission Dresser for $425.
My go-to model Yelena has had some time off while I’ve been doing medieval stuff, so she’s happy to be back to show us some dressers.
You know the drill by now, all three dressers come in Pooklet’s naturals + Time Bomb. For this one, I also couldn’t decide whether I wanted the handles to be silver or gold, so you get one of each. (Please note that it isn’t repo’d to any of the Maxis Mission stuff, I simply didn’t have the spoons for that kind of remapping – esp. since the all the Mission items all look like they were mapped by someone who’d been smoking something that wasn’t good for them. 😛 )
Otherwise, the recols look as follows:
Then we have the Medium Luxury Dresser for $525…
This Primer fellow disappeared against a lighter background, so I let Yelena pick a different one.
What can I say, she likes green.
…and finally the Modern Dresser of title pic fame, for $550.
What a serendipitous discovery!! How delightful. ” Mixed in with the medieval ones were four decidedly modern dressers, with decidedly modern clothes in their drawers.” Thank you for spotting this and then making the conversion for us. Great Work, Johanna!
Thank you! ❤ Funny thing is, I didn't notice anything strange when I was extracting these, I just looked for files with "dresser" in the file name and didn't dwell on what they were called in addition to that (besides, the TSM file names are usually rather terse and have little to do with what the object is called in game, so something like "dresserMediumLuxury" isn't an odd name in any way). It wasn't until I was importing the meshes into Milkshape that I noticed that some of them didn't quite look quite as medieval as you would expect.
Yes, serendipitous indeed. 🙂 I've seen some half-finished things in the TSM game files before, that definitely aren't medieval (like remote controls and bicycles – I kid thee not), that I'm guessing the creators used as a base for something and then didn't bother clearing out, so if it had just been one dresser, I wouldn't have thought it all that strange… but four of them? With proper textures and proper joints and bone assignments and everything? Not what I expected to find. But I’m not complaining – more nice dressers to convert. 😉
Very, very snazzy. Thanks, Nix.
Glad you like! 😀 Not what I was expecting to find in the TSM files, but I’m not complaining. 😉
Hi, these are very nice! All three of them are from the Sims 3 though, I recognize them. No idea why they were in medieval.
Thanks. Funny, but you’re the first one who’ve said you recognise them from TS3. I suspected that might be where they’re from, but since I don’t have TS3 and don’t play it, I couldn’t confirm it.
My guess is that the devs used them as a template for the TSM dressers, and then simply didn’t bother to delete them from the game files (since they aren’t in the catalogue, nobody can get to them anyway… right? 😛 ). It wouldn’t be the first time. 🙂
They’re definitely TS3.. theres a brief catalogue of items posted here: http://wiki.thesimsresource.com/index.php?title=Object_Catalog (doesn’t include all eps/sps). They look so shiny in TS2.. i wish TS3 had this kind of quality. ❤ And it definitely seems like EA used these as a base 😀
Thanks for telling me. 🙂 Glad you like how they turned out! I wonder why EA thought the needed so many. I mean, I can understand using a TS3 dresser as a base, that sort of makes sense, but four of them? Not that I’m complaining, mind; this way, I can have TS3 stuff for my game without actually having TS3. 😉
