Inventory Not Shared

Required: Base Game

This is a script mod that modifies game scripts. Script mods need significantly fewer updates than resource mods.

What this Mod Does:

  • Storage Chests, Retail Fridges, & Warming Racks will no longer share their inventory with objects of the same type.


  • [SCRIPT]_InventoryNotShared_BakingWarmingRack
  • [SCRIPT]_InventoryNotShared_RetailFridge
  • [SCRIPT]_InventoryNotShared_Chest
Some objects, like fridges and storage chests, share an inventory. If you put an apple in a chest that’s in your bedroom, you can grab it from a completely different chest in the basement. With this mod Storage Chests, Retail Fridges, and Warming Racks will have their own inventory so you will only be able to access your stored items from the specific object you stored it in. 
You can use one or all of the files in this download at the same time.

I originally created this for my Farmers Market objects, but found it to be pretty useful overall. I really like that this helps me sort items more easily for those Sims who love to collect things. 

This mod was made possible by the super talented Scumbumbo@MTS who created the original python script to modify this tuning. My first version was an override file but this script is much more efficient and will require fewer updates. 

The following in-game resources have been modified:

  • None!
  • objects.components.inventory_type_tuning
To install, open the zip then drag and drop the .ts4script files into your mods folder. Do NOT unzip the .ts4script files!
NOTE: Be mindful of how many of these storage objects you put on a lot. The game still has to keep track of each inventory and I’m sure it will cause lag if you have too many of them.

19/16/02 – Replaced files with script version and created individual files.

If there are fixes to these files in the future you can find out by following me on Twitter and/or Tumblr to stay updated!

Please DO NOT try to pass off my code as your own. If you want use any part of my custom code please provide a credit and linkback to the original download page. See the Creator Policy link above for my complete Terms of Use.
