Objects and Settings


Pedestals/Rugs/Shelves

  • Settings
    • Set Owner
      • Set the sim who is charged for restocking and receiving the store's profit
    • Link to Register
      • Set which register this pedestal/rug/shelf is linked to
      • Note: You can either have the owner or the register linked, if you select one, the other is reset and vice versa
    • Disable/Enable: Restock from Buy Mode
      • When enabled, items will be restocked from Buy Mode
      • Note: Disable this interaction if your sim has a garage sale so the items are not restocked after they are bought
      • Default: Enabled
    • Enable/Disable: Restock Craftable from Buy Mode
      • When enabled, inventory items will be restocked from Buy Mode
      • Note 1: This is ideal for a sim who has a store that sells inventions then they don't have to spend all their time inventing but can have a life. Also, for a sim who wants to start a grocery store but doesn't want to grow the items.
      • Note 2: By default, inventory items are always restocked from the store's inventory contained within the Register. When this option is left at the default setting of Disabled, the rug needs to be linked to a Register and you must have exactly the same items that you are selling, in your register's inventory.
      • Default: Disabled

      • When enabled, sims only buy from the shop of the active household. Active sims can buy from any shop

Global settings
Note: The two global settings above need to be edited through S3PE if you want to change the value permanently. To do that, open the package "ani_StoreSetBase.package" and edit the values in the XML called "Sims3.Gameplay.Objects.TombObjects.ani_StoreSetBase.StoreSetBase".

Ani's Note: The reason I added the possibility to also set them in game, even though they are not permanent, is in case you want to have these set differently for certain situations only.
