This object is a clone of the decorative storage chest that is already in the game and still has a slot for placing an object on top. I gave it a custom tuning that gives it an inventory, like the storage chests, but I set the inventory type to ‘SIM’. This means anything that can go into your Sim’s inventory, should also be able to be placed inside the storage chest (like yoga mats, crystals, flowers, postcards, books, portable instruments, etc). Please back-up your game before using, and let me know if you find any issues.
You can also apply my tuning to your own objects to give them a storage inventory by following the guide here and using the tuning name ‘Cinderelli:Storage_Chest12/02/2016’ and the tuning id ‘14388068243292795237’. My file must be installed to work (or you can include my tuning in your own package).
