About this mod

Unlocks and changes the pricing and categorization of Build and Buy mode objects so that you can find stuff easier.

Permissions and credits
Do you ever get lost when browsing Build and Buy mode?
Years of neglect by EA has meant that when you are looking for that specific jug or crate, more than likely you can't find it because it's mixed with buckets, parasols, traffic cones, everything completely mixed up. It is chaos! But now it is organized chaos.

What this mod does:
  • This mod changes the pricing and categorization of Build and Buy mode so that objects are placed in their correct categories, and similar ones grouped together, for ease of browsing. Essentially it's for people who don't really care whether a sofa costs 250 or 2500, as long as they can find it when they need to.
        So for example, Single Beds > Bunk Beds > Double Beds > Double Beds with Roof > Special Beds (like a sarcophagus)
  •  It unlocks 99% of hidden or debug objects, all catalogued logically. Perhaps hundreds. You shouldn't need any other mods to unlock objects apart from this one.
  • Nothing appears in multiple categories (apart from garage doors) 
  • Some objects received LOD, now visible from hood view.
  • It changes the 'by function' sorting ONLY.
  • Items changed from the following: Base Game, all EP's, HELS, FLS and MS stuff packs (packs not required)
  • This mod contains recolourable edits of some objects by JimTNW. Thanks Jim.

Installation:  It is a single package file

> Shimrod101's 'World Editor More Stuff' series of mods. His edits are in my mod already. Much thanks.
> Any other mods that unlock items will overlap with this.
