Functional Picnic Basket

This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.

I got really annoyed that there was no Picnic Basket in Seasons expansion so I tweaked the one from Sims 3 and made it a storage container that can hold food and be placed into the Sim's inventory. So, I basically changed the inventory tuning from Storage to Sim and added the the tuning code from the Guitar Object so the basket can be placed into the Sim's Inventory. So now you can pack a lunch and have it at a park. I made the Picnic Basket in 10 different swatches ranging from everyday to holiday themed. It can be found in the Buy-Storage-Misc and it costs $20.

How to Use the Picnic Basket

1. Prepare your goodies.
2. Place the Picnic Basket on a counter next to your goodies.
3. Place the goodies into the Basket by choosing open on the basket.
4. Place the Basket into the Sims inventory by choosing add to inventory on the basket.

To take the items from the Basket, Place the basket into the real world, and then remove food.
