This is the second part of my gifts for the for the 2016 Fishmas Advent Calendar at leefish.nl. This was fulfilling a gift from a certain Yeti: CEPs! 😀 The humble Yeti only wanted CEPs for the Luxiary King Armchair and the Sofa of Substance, but as I was making those, I realised there were several other sofas and armchairs, that only had one subset but really ought to have two… and since I was already in full CEP swing, I decided to do something about that. 😉 (I did look around first, though, to make sure nobody had made CEPs for them already – “nobody” meaning HafiseAzale and HugeLunatic, since they are my most trusted CEP makers. That’s why I didn’t make a CEP for e.g. the Futonesque Fantasy Sofa – Hafi already did that.)
The result was no less than seven CEPs: for the Luxiary King Armchair and the Sofa of Substance as per Yeti request, and also for the Contempto Good Livin’ Chair, the Blue Suede Chair, the Glassic Chair, the Satinistics Loveseat and the UNI Wornable Sofa (since that one’s basically the Sofa of Substance, only… worn).
Just in case you want proof of their new two-subset-ness:
CEP Installation Instructions
Edit: Just so there’s no confusion about how CEPs work, installing these will break recolours of the sofa/armchair legs, since the legs are now on a new, renamed subset, but they will NOT break any recolours of the fabric.
(I’m sure most of you know how to install CEPs properly to avoid getting custom stars on things that shouldn’t have them, but just to be on the safe side.9
If you don’t have them already, please install the CEP and the Extras by Numenor first!
Each folder in the zip file below contains two subfolders, MyDocuments and ProgramFiles.
- Move the file in the MyDocuments folder to:
C:\Users\<username>\Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\zCEP-EXTRA
- Move the file in the ProgramFiles folder to:
C:\Program Files (x86)\EA GAMES\The Sims 2\TSData\Res\Catalog\zCEP-EXTRA
Do NOT put them in your Downloads folder, and do not put both in the same folder. They won’t work properly if you do.
These are so very useful. Thank you so much! 🙂
You’re welcome. 🙂 I really don’t understand EAxian logic when it comes to subsets and which items get them or not. Come to think of it, I don’t understand EAxian logic, period. 😛
Thank you. However, any recolors of this that were downloaded won’t show up with the new CEP
That isn’t quite correct. Recolours of the legs won’t show up, since the legs are now on a new, renamed subset – but recolours of the fabric will show up just fine since the CEPs don’t touch that subset. I’ve clarified that in the post now.
FYI, I wouldn’t make CEPs that break recolours completely – but if they did, I would have put a warning in the post.
Thank you again Nix! I really appreciate it and I’m looking forward to recoloring all these meshes now! ❤
Glad you liked and like them – and thank you for making the wish! 😀 I wouldn’t have thought of it otherwise.
CEPs are fun, so please feel free to poke me if you think of anything else that looks like it wants one. 🙂
The link is broken
Sim File Share is down for maintenance, so no files hosted there can currently be downloaded (so it’s not just here). I posted a PSA about it on the front page.
They haven’t yet said when the site will be back up, so I don’t know when downloads will be available again, sorry. You’ll just have to try later.
