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.
Following my current trend of curvy furniture, here is a curvy end table to match (or not) some of my other pieces. This started out as releasing a cheapo piece of furniture instead of the usuall high-end stuff I've made - you know, so folks don't think I'm a snob. As I was generating the plastic textures, I noticed some similarities in the mesh with the Curvy Desk I made a short while ago. Aha! Added the textures from the desk in, and... yes, they match. (They also match a few EAxis desks & tables, as well as my 3-Tile Execudrone Desk .)

In for a penny, in for a pound: So while I had SimPE reopened to reimport the altered UV maps and extra textures, I realized I wanted slots. Moar, no, LOTSA slots. So I added slots.
The one I'm most proud of is the tilted slot in the front of the table. Your sim can put things in it and take them out again.


In general, the sides of the table are colored glass, but there is a transparent option included for a more open look. I was originally thinking of the bottom of the table as a kind of display case, but once I figured out how to make things retrievable without using moveobjects on, I could see other possibilites were open to their use. Let's see what our pesky Sims can come up with.

Some technical info:
All plastic textures generated in Blender 2.77
All glass textures made in SimPE The wood textures are original EAxis, manipulated in Blender and GIMP 2.8
in-game price - 77
in-game location - Surfaces>End Tables
total faces - 632

Known issues:
Since there are so many slots, you will will need to use the M-key on your keyboard to toggle through them all. Please remember that a few of the slots are for small deco objects only, so they may not be available for some of your items. (zum Beispiel: A lamp will fit in the two middle slots on the bottom deck, but not in the two side slots.)

Tools used:
SimPE, Blender 2.77, GIM 2.8




Polygon Counts:
shadows - 8
