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.
A fridge that matches the Maxis “Harbinger” kitchen, in the 20 colour variants of the Harbinger cabinets.


Update 2015-04-30 ‒ I overhauled the entire thing, the new package is changed/improved thusly:
  • Found a simpler and more logical way to deal with the rig ‒ no more weird start/stop states
  • Moved the right side of the interior so it won’t clip into the wall when the fridge is placed in a corner
  • Fixed the mirrored light reflection on the door texture and edited the door handles to better match their shadow
  • Baseboard is now matching the equivalent counters a little better
  • Cleaned up the low poly mesh, it is more low poly now
  • Various little mesh/map edits that also get rid of some pointless high-poly-ness

You should redownload, it really looks much better now =).




It costs 1.800§ and is available in Function > Appliances > Refrigerators and Room > Kitchen > Refrigerators. All textures are custom. Tuning is referenced from one of the Maxis medium quality fridges, so if you have any mods that modify that (like graycurse’s “Shop from Fridge” which I had in when taking the screenshots) it will work for this fridge as well. All screenshots are taken with the Harbinger Light Fix in; it changes how the cabinets are rendered (like the counters, so that the colours look the same as on those).


Known issue:
  • The fridge is being rendered a little differently from the counters and cabinets ‒ this is because I can’t use the Counter shader for the fridge since that stops the animations from working. With some colour variants this is more noticeable, with some less; it also depends on the lighting in the room how much of annoyance it is.

Polygon Counts:

High Poly: 1044V/633F
Mid Poly: 851V/484F
Low Poly: 210V/114F

I just updated with various little improvements, see first post. In particular the issue with the animation start/stop states is resolved, and the painted-on light reflections on the doors are mirrored to match those on the cabinet doors.

This is a nice fridge-cabinet combo. Strangely enough, it doesn't have the fridge opening/closing sounds. Was that intentional, or by accident?

It has sounds for me (last time I checked, at least). Which game version is this?

Everything does that. Try grabbing and moving something that you've enlarged in game .. it will only have its actual size when you let go. Since I've changed the rig in the fridge, i'll also initially display with the unmodified rig. This isn't an issue for gameplay though since you cannot grab it in Live mode.

It's a great job! This refrigerator looks very good in the game, and works great. Perhaps you will be inspired to make refrigerators for other kitchen furniture? Thank you very much!
