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.

  • Improved occluders.


This is a conversion of the Always Waiting Waiter Station from the TS4 Dine Out gamepack. It functions as a cabinet with five decorative slots (these slots are routable--sims will autonomously place items in them and be able to retrieve items from them). Some modifications have been made to the mesh for better scaling into TS3 and to accommodate the slots.

There are three presets and four recolourable channels. It is found under Sort by Function -> Surfaces -> Cabinets, and priced at 125 simoleons.

  • The Waiter Station Cabinet occupies a single tile, but is slightly wider and deeper than a typical one-tile TS3 object. When placed against a wall, some minor clipping might occur. Pressing Alt during placement should allow it to be positioned in such a way as to avoid clipping.
  • When the Waiter Station Cabinet is not placed against a wall, sims will sometimes approach from its back to reach objects placed in the decorative slots, clipping through part of the cabinet. This is due to the way routing to surfaces is implemented by EA--it does not appear to include a way to dictate a directional approach (there is seemingly no support for routing slots). Similar behaviour is seen in EA's own objects, such as the alchemy potion display case from the Supernatural EP. If the display is not placed against a wall and a sim is made to retrieve a potion from one of the shelves, the sim will approach the back of the display and clip through it to grab the potion.

Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
