Suzanne has mastered the use of OMSP's in her game and I want to try do the same with a kitchen I am decorating for the Reese Legacy home.
I have gone through her album again, and seen that she was also able to pack the shelves very full. But it is higher up the wall and at different heights as well.

I did find OMSP packages by KitKatSimporium as well as Severinka.

What I want to know, how do you get the shelves packed so full?
I am good with the one for counters and the lower ones.

It's funny because I had downloaded some, then Suzanne was talking about some that were great, and when I go to unpack the ones I had gotten, they turned out to be the ones she was talking about (I think)

These are awesome because they are actually like little wood stumps all attached to each other in miniscule height increments with a slot on each stump. There is a total of 4 with each "object" have about 20 stumps so you can easily line things up perfectly for almost any height.

Here's the link of where I got them.

Oh my goodness!! Never knew about this! So glad I asked.
With this lot in game do you still need any others?
Thank you so much for the link.

I don't use any other ones because I haven't found anything that this didn't have the right height for, but I think that's a perrsonal preference, these are big and bulky since they're so long, they're like 2 or 3 tiles long but they're so useful, and then you just make them invisible once you the the object where you want

I was perusing our forum and came across this post...

...yes, I'm late to the party! LOL

The only thing I would add to using the EZ2CIAMAPRINCESS OMSPs is that I leave that for last...

...the reason I do is because they can interfere with placing objects, even when they're invisible.

They are probably not the best choices if you are planning on playing the build with sims as they can cause routing issues, leaving your sims standing in place and yelling and waving their arms, LOL.

If you want to use OMSPs in a playable build, use the column types from Mango, Severinka, and KitKat as those are underneath the item and therefore not in the way of sims trying to move about the build.

There is a workaround to OMSPs that involves using MOO (the bb.moveobjects cheat) and the ALT key while making sure your mouse pointer is underneath the surface object. Here is a great video that explains and shows how to do this: Freely Place Objects without OMSPs.

While this tutorial shows how to do this with a desk, this will work with most surfaces.

For those where it would be difficult to have your mouse pointer underneath, take a look at this tutorial which utilizes the "fill all the slots" method: Fill all slots/no OMSPs method.

These methods are awesome alternatives to placing decorative objects on surfaces without the need to use OMSPs.

I use every method to place objects because I like my builds to look realistic...

...however, for those that want a few decor items in playable builds, these methods (column OMSPs, MOO & ALT and pointer underneath a surface, and Fill all the Slots and move the surface) offer other ways to decorate your builds :D

Suzanne,I was trying this method out yesterday, but it did not work for me.
When I took the item off the counter/table it went straight to the floor. Do we have to keep it in the grip of the hand?
Then also I did not see the cursor only the little hand..... what did I do wrong?

I will try the method again though..... have to get it right!

Anita - Try to raise your item with 9 when placing it, that might keep it from moving back down to the floor (I've only tried this a few times, and not always successfully)

I have used the "fill all the slots up" process before and it works well, but sometimes surfaces have like 20 different slots! LOL, and not always the same size, so when you place your "filler object" you might have thought you filled up all the slots, then when you go to place your actual clutter item it STILL finds a slot to snap to! Drives me nuts! LOL

And sometimes things you think would be a "small deco" item really are a medium or large item! It just depends on what it was cloned from. I've had that happen with my own creations when I wanted to place a certain deco item on the shelf or fireplace mantle and it wouldn't work.

I asked in S4S if there was a way to determine an object's deco size, and OrangeMittens showed me a tutorial on how to change what classification a deco item has and it was easy to do.

Here's the instructions for anybody who's interested in reading how

I'm happy to help, thank you, Anita and Melisa :D

Sometimes, though, these methods are weird.

I tend to use the fill the slots method - just pick something really small! lol

I would love it if EA brought back the disablesnappingtoslots cheat... that would resolve all of this; but even with that cheat it didn't always work! lol

Whether an object stays at the surface height is sometimes dependent upon the object; mostly though, if you actually place it on the object, when you pull it off it will stay at the correct height.

Let me know, Anita if you actually placed the object and what the object was that resulted in it dropping back to the floor.

There is a class of objects that do that (plants?) I believe; so any object based on that would have the same properties.

The good news? Because we all let each other know what happens, we all learn way more! <3
