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.

Update 15 May 2015: I FINALLY figured out why counters 2 and 4 crashed when you placed a sink on them. The problem has now been corrected, so please download the fixed version of the counters. They will overwrite the faulty ones.

This is a set that I’ve wanted to make ever since I since I worked on the Torrox Build Set: A collection of counters and shelving units appropriate for especially Spanish/Southwestern houses. They can pretty much be used in any room – kitchen, bathroom, living room, entrance, bedroom etc.

The set contains 4 counters, 1 island, 5 overhead shelving units, 3 tall shelving units and a single wooden shelf.

All shelving units have plenty of extra slots which makes it easy to place lamps, plants and other deco objects. The counters only have one extra slot (it isn’t possible to add any more), but the shelves are placed in heights that allows you to use invisibles to fill them up. If you don’t have an invisible that fits the lowest shelves, I have one over at Sims2Artists – in this thread: http://sims2artists.com/index.php?topic=3738.0

NB! You can place sinks on all four counters, but it looks better on the two counters with doors (1 and 3). (See message above about the previous sink problem).

The whole set is repository with counters 1/2 as the master that all the other objects are slaved to. It uses the same textures as all the Torrox build sets which you can find under the tab β€˜Related pages’.

The following recolors of plaster and wood subsets are included in the download:
