Is it possible to make an IFF that overwrote (impermanently) a default mailbox with the Makin' Magic sprites? Then it would be usable and everything.

Sorry for the delay.

I thought you might like to put it on landscaping items so objects can intersect with it but sims cannot. It's also pond, pool, and slope enabled. No EP required.

Object makers - cloneable, yes, but I did not alter the graphics any so they are split into 3 sprites. You can just make those invisible if you want. Or check woobsha.com to see if I have made a similar base with simpler graphics.

The magic town mailbox and the regular mailbox are the same file. Code (and the MT graphics) have been added by Maxis to that file so the mailbox checks to see if it's in Magic town and decides which graphic to show accordingly.

it would be very simple to remove this check and have it show the MT mailbox all of the time. It would also be fairly simple to add an option to the mailbox allowing you to change it's work the same way 6-in-1 objects have.

Lost-to-Sims took it a step further and made a mailbox system in fact that allows object makers to make any style mailbox they want. This system treats those mailboxes as skins and allows you to swap the look out as easily as you would pop a new skin onto your cell phone or ipod or change the skin on your winamp or [insert your favorite popular software that allows you to change the theme in a sec]


This is an add-on for the Magic Sims Magic Mailbox System and wont work unless you have that installed.

I like the idea of a deco Mailbox as I have the system that has the pink flower!!

I don't play much so a working system really isn;' needed - for me anyway!!

Thank you so much!!
