This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
[Edit: obsolete! Use VelocityGrass's Deco Remover, here: http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=478307]

The Mission counter/cabinet set in Sims 3 is attractive and functional, but I rarely used it, because the stained glass inserts never matched my color schemes. This upload fixes all that, by removing the glass insets from the counters, counter islands, cabinets, and cabinet islands; you see only fully recolorable wooden cabinet doors.

The Plain Mission items are not default replacements; they're available as new catalog items, slightly cheaper than the fancy glass-fronted ones in the game. You can mix and match both styles in your kitchen.

Two caveats for this item:

1) The package files are large. That's partly because every counter and cabinet is actually two or three items, including corner versions and appliance versions. It was also necessary to bring in extra resources to the clone, to remove all four glass designs and to maintain the links between the various forms of counter. Attempts to remove various resources resulted in bad things happening when linking counters, so I've just gone with the full clone.

2) The corner versions of the two-sided "island" overhead cabinets have a sporadic texture mapping problem. I discovered this while testing, but unfortunately it's also a feature of the original mission overhead cabinets, and fixing it is beyond the scope of this mod.

Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
