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.
This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Maxis "Lost & Found" #23
SOUVENIR CABINET

UPDATED and FIXED 18 JUNE 2006 - Please REDOWNLOAD




18 June 2006 - BUGFIX: when selecting the cabinet from the Buy Mode catalog, two additional icons (with white texture) were displayed, in addition to the normal two ones. Please redownload (the fixed version will overwrite the older one). All existing recolours made by other users will still work fine.

18 June 2006 - UPDATE: I told you, I'm not very good at creating textures Therefore MaryLou created for us two much better looking default textures, with proper 3D effects and shadows: they are now included in the cabinet package and replaced the older one. Another good reason to redownload!

------------------------------------------------
(Original post)

Thanks to shakeshaft for having found this mesh into the base game files.
Quite an interesting mesh indeed! As usual, many part of the object were missing, including the textures. I've rebuilt the missing parts and created a working package, and I've also created two brand new textures to go with the Cabinet mesh.
Therefore, if you like the mesh, thank Maxis; if you dislike the two textures, blame me!
By the way, why two textures? Because Maxis left in the packages two Material Overrides, proving that the Cabinet was originally intended to have two alternative colours. My idea of the "Lost & Found" is to save everything Maxis left behind, adding the minimum elements required for the object to work...

The object has its own GUID (graciously provided by Maxis itself ), is recolourable, and works in any game configuration, including the bare base game.

It's a purely decorative object: you can't put anything in it. You'll find it in:
Buy Mode -> Decorative -> Misc.

PS: if you are wondering where to download the lamp shown in the screenshots, well, it isn't available for download... yet! Keep your eyes open!

I know, I've written in the first post that the cabinet was found into the base game files...
Thanks for the screenshot! What a pity, Maxis didn't leave that beautiful texture in the files...

I've checked in this very moment, and it works.
The file is OK, maybe retrying in a different time of the day will help.

I was looking around in the archives on snootysims.com and they had a few pics that maxis had released before the base game was even released. I think I found a few pics of the Souvenir Cabinet with maxis textures. Here they are:

and then there's this one too

I just thought you guys might want to know, I thought it was kind of interesting.

Yes, the original texture is quite nice... I'd like to "find" that potted plant, too!

Fantastic! It looks like the kind of furniture pieces my mother always stares at longingly in stores. If only we had more space!
I do love that lamp too!
Thank you so much for making this!

The lamp is from the Simstone set, if you are interested in it.

Yes, that one, with the fire burning. It's one of the lamps included in the Simstone set (very suggestive, if I can say it myself )
