THANKS THIS IS GREAT

Color me a bit confused -- so your ls_buy.package has ALL the LS objects you've converted in one package, rather than in individual packages like Pescado's (and others)?  If it's not all of them, is there a list somewhere of which it does contain, so I know which older packages are replaced?

AFAIK, the only thing that doesn't exist in Argon's version is GiftBox from Numenorian version, which I think isn't a buy mode/reward object in the first place. Probably an accessory object.

Havelock found and finished the hidden LS reward painting which EAxis recycled as an exclusive LS download.

It is the EAxian version i have not finished this Picture. I uploaded it here so everyone could have it. Not only LS Owners.

THANKS THIS IS GREAT

One stupid question: I already have this stuff in my game from previous downloads, and I've used it extensively in my neighborhood. Will this file just take the place of my previous LS stuff, or am I going to have to refurnish/decorate?
Objects will stay, but walls and floors will not. Objects are recognized by their GUIDs, whereas walls and floors are by their TGIs.

Thanks for clarifying. My current LS stuff is in Downloads, so I think I'll try loading the build bundle in the Category Bin, and then go through my occupied & community lots to replace walls & floors with Argon's version. If that doesn't work, I'll just re-do it. Sometimes it's good to do a forced redecorating. EDIT: for anyone else in the same boat, this method worked fine.

Quote from: Lord Darcy
I am guessing that deleting in-game will delete the entire bundled file.
Yes, it will.

Will I have to use SimPE to remove items I don't want? If so, any suggestions for going about it?
Rather than messing with the LS package itself, which can be updated in future, I suggest that you make your own personal hider like Ambular's Maxis fug hider.

My main reason for weeding through was to keep my size of loading MBs down, so to speak, with the added benefit of a slightly smaller catalog. However, in comparison it's only about 10MBs difference, which is a drop in the bucket. Smiley So if my catalog feels too huge again, I'll try putting together a hider. Thanks for the tip!

EDIT: I just wanted to repeat Lord Darcy's praise of Argon's work over previously available versions of the LS stuff. I have gone through a number of lots replacing the old versions of the walls & floors with Argon's, and the proof is in the pudding. Old version on the left, Argon's on the right. (Click pics to see the details, and sorry for my messy arrows!)



Awesome job, Argon!

Argon i have made a wallshadowfix for the shakely dresser, but you have two Shape files for him in your bundle. The only working one is dresserShakely_dressersmall_shpe i have removed the Shape with untagged in it now the wallshadow works.

Edit: Attachment removed. Fix is now included in the package.

I could have sworn I saw that painting in my game before I started dumping objects, that's why I didn't include it. So it's not just a recycled Maxis object? Also, I've got the lamp, I just need to assign a group to it. It might take a while for me to update again, at least until I get my school books and loan processed  Tongue

Oh ok good, I thought it was CRES error. Since the wall shadow is working, the model just needed to be pushed further out from the wall.

Its done I assigned a Group Number, fixed resources deleted not used and allredy in game ones. Also deleted 200 Poygons unused crap, and made it cast proper light.



You could see original has not casted visible light on anything other than objects near them.

The ls closegrill.package allows you to tell your Sim to close the lid after he used the bbq without the hack the lid stays open forever like on all other EAxis made bbqs.

LS CEP is almost done. Looks like the subset names of reward sofa are erroneously renamed. The frame part is named cushion, and vice versa. Could you fix it in the next version?

They are unrelated to any Numenorian versions. All Awesomeware is upgraded to work in the current expansion, whereas the Numenorian works were abandoned when EAxis bitched at them.
