Let's play chess, shall we?

Okay, here is something I've been sitting on for quite awhile now and mainly for two reasons: one, they were supposed to be included into the VTMB world and two, they're not quite perfect when it comes to grip. And what am I talking about? Well, chess or more likely chess pieces, pushable chess pieces.

I was so annoyed that EA hadn't though about this, when they gave us these chess statues in Showtime and finally decided to do something about it. With the wonderful help of Bloom and Omegastarr82, I was able to make these pieces work.... more or less. There is a gap between the chess piece and sim's hands due to the fact that the tomb statue which was used in the process is quite a bit larger than showtime chess statues. I tried to get them as close to each other as I could, though. They work fine in game and are checked with the dashboard just in case.

There are two things to be aware of...
1. When the pieces are placed in buy mode, you have to Shift + click them each and choose "Make movable".
2. If you make a chessboard, I recommend making it big,  four squares for one piece instead of one (unlike in the pic below). Even then they might be tricky. As I said, they're not perfect.
 




                                  

All the pieces can be found from: Buy mode -> Hobbies & Skills and they have two recolorable channels. You can include them in shared lots as long as credit and link to here is provided. Please, do not upload them to another site or claim them as your own. Thank you.
