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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
* Problem for Base-Game only Users - The Rangehood apparently causes issues in the game for some people if you do not have EPs installed. So download at your own risk *

Well here is my first Object with Animations... the retro "SimStar" Stove!
Inspired by the very cool and totally out of my price range stove made by Northstar.

Stove is cloned from the "Ciao Time Mondo Fuego Gas Stove", and
according to SimPE it should work with or without Expansions.

The Overhead Cabinet with Rangehood is cloned from the "Wall Flower"
wall lamp, and should also work without Expansions. Includes the black
cabinet & black hood (mesh) plus stainless recolor of the hood (shown)
This item is located in Appliances/misc.

I have a bunch of recolors on the way (though not tonight, I gotta go to bed! LOL!) So watch for them in the next day or so...

Stove: Polys - 1270, Vertices - 1536
Rangehood: Polys - 240, Vertices - 130

Matching Overhead Cabinet & Over-Fridge Cabinet/Smoke Alarm available:
