This is your new mailbox. Pick the flower and put it
in your Game Data/Objects folder. It will turn the Maxis mailbox on every
residential lot - even in Magic Town - into this tiny flower and works just like
the Maxis one. DO NOT DELETE THE FLOWER OR YOU WILL MESS UP YOUR GAME
You will also want some new skins for your mailbox so that it looks
like the sim is actually getting those lovely bills from a real box.
[masks] Unzip these into your Downloads folder. You will find them in the
catalog under Miscellaneous in your game. They will hide the little flower and
you can decorate them and change them with the seasons. Don't
worry about hiding the flower however because the
masks communicate with the flower, allowing
you to command your sims to get mail.
Directions: To put the mask or anything else on the flower,
hold down the CTRL and SHIFT
keys and type C. A little cheat window opens at
the top left of your game screen. Type MOVE_OBJECTS ON
exactly as shown, then ENTER. Use the hand cursor
in either Buy or Build mode to place your new mask and decorate it, then open
the cheat window again (CTRL-SHIFT-C). Type
MOVE_OBJECTS OFF, then
If you're nervous about using hacks but still want to use these skins,
just move your Maxis mailbox to a hidden spot on the property where the mail
carrier can reach it. DO NOT DELETE THE MAILBOX OR YOU WILL MESS UP
YOUR GAME BADLY!
Object creators - cloning these skins is not only allowed, it's
encouraged. Please let us know at the forum where we can download the skins
that you create from these bases and provide a link to Magic Sims so that your
downloaders can get the flower patch. You must use one of the bases below
or the prototype because they have been hacked to
communicate with the mailbox. Sims can be directed
to get mail when users click on the replacement.
