@Joolster I've just added a full fix for all of the animals stencils that includes the windows.

Essentially it replicates what a modder did that I found from another site but seems to work in my game.

Unfortunately it'll need to go in your mods folder but is one of those "remove it and everything reverts to normal" ones.

At the same time, it makes all of the other missing stencils from the animal sets show up since it covers all of the Animals Abounds store sets. It also adds the move up/down on the wall functionality that's missing from all of the older sets and does little things like properly categorises the office chair etc. It also recategorises the wall shelves by moving them to surfaces/displays, like the rest of my stuff. Unfortunately, it's an all or nothing thing. Check the Be Less Stupid page of my site if you're interested.

Animal collection file is also up.

As for the chair, since that's a sectional sofa it's designed to clump together with the others. The recolouring thing is another matter entirely but that happens with a lot of the sectional store stuff like sofas and counters. I don't think that can be repaired.

@MrHawk, is it in your studio? I skimmed through this thread quickly, I don't think I've seen the windows reposted anywhere.

Joolster no not the windows. The fix (originally not mine) for the window stencils has been incorporated into the animal fix that I have on my website (Be Less Stupid page).

As I said though, they're mainly recats and fixes on my site. I included the fixed stencils for the sake of completion and a way for me to learn more. So if you just want the windows best to grab them from MATY.

Oh alright, I'll snoop around. By the way, last night I was looking for a way to replace the stupid base game mailbox in Lunar Lakes on new manually placed empty lots and I think google linked me your site. I downloaded the .package file and put it into Mods->Overrides as instructed but it never fixed anything. In the end I actually found a 20x20 pre-made lot in there with a house and just deleted the house. But for future reference if I still need to replace the mailbox, what did I do wrong?

You may not have put the resource cfg file in your mods folder?
If so, you should have a mods folder that has a packages folder and an overrides folder inside it. In that folder the resource.cfg file needs to go to.

If you have all of that it just may be that you were in the wrong section. All the fixed mailboxes will appear in lawn ornaments under room sort/outside.

I'd say the second one is more likely since some people have been able to use the fix even by just putting it directly into the packages folder and ignoring overrides altogether. Give that a bash too.

Oh I see, I just figured it would be replaced automatically, silly me. Thanks for your help.

Installed now, I'm so excited to use them. My Japanese house I'm building will be 10x better with these hidden stencils unlocked. Thanks for all of the incredible effort you've put in, MrHawk & AznSensei!

I have a quick question: were any hidden stencils released for the Killer Classics set & Welcome Back to 3 Lakes? At the Simalogue I don't think I saw mention of any in the Collections section or Be Less Stupid.

Cuz I'm kinda sick of Mountain Man's Mountain Lighter.

Nope none in that one.
Were there any in the TS2 versions? I can't remember
