Question On Merging Objects - dishes/kitchen cabinets.

February11February11 Posts: 10,972 Member
I wasn't sure where to post this so decided to start here.
I downloaded a house from the community and in the kitchen there were kitchen overhead cabinets which had a pile of plates showing. I went into build mode to see what the item was called by moving it, and it reverted to just an ordinary overhead cabinet without the pile of plates, so clicked the undo button to keep it as it was. It looks pretty good, so assume that the maker of this house merged the dishes with the cheat to place them there.
I cannot find any dishes. Anyone able to help with this.
The house has no cc, so the dishes have to be somewhere in build/buy.

    You have to turn off auto-counters in order to get different types of counters. When you go to the kitchen area of buy mode, you see that auto-counters is on. Just click on it to turn it off. Auto-counters only makes counters stick together, if I'm not mistaken.
    There's a YouTube video out there explaining exactly how you can do that.

    There are quite a few kitchen cabinets with plates in them. Try selecting the cabinet from the menu in build or buy mode. There will be a little wrench to the left of the color options. Click on that and look through those and you should find them. Good luck!

    Yes, that's right. :) You can find them manually in build mode through the little wrench tool. As Floofje said, make sure you have auto counters turned off or the cabinet will automatically return to default.

    Yes, there are. You have to go to the section with overhead cabinets and if you click on the color options, where it pulls up the different types of cabinets you'll find a couple of them with glass doors that have plates and sometimes other kitcheny items in them.

    That particular type of cabinet looks like that with the dishes etc. Different cabinet types have other types of decoration/looks. So when you place those cabinets they just come with that clutter.

    Thanks NZ.
    In fact thanks all of you. I can't believe I've never discovered this option.

    Okay, where's the wrench?
    Edit - Got it!

    This has opened up a whole new world of kitchens to me.
    Does it apply to any other object, in any other room? I won't be able to fiddle now until Monday.

    Just the kitchen cabinets, both the bench and overheads. There are some pretty cool round bench cabinets ends that allows you to make great looking and shaped kitchens though. :)

    Only counters and cabinets atm. I guess they will do something similar if we get sectional seating back.

    Yes, I spotted some pretty nice round benches while I was looking through the gallery. I naturally thought they were all using cheats!
