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.
I'm back! This time with my first upload that's unrelated to Sherlock (don't get used to it )

I now present champagne glasses! Those weird shaped maxis ones always bothered me, they just looked off to me, so I decided to replace the mesh with some more classy ones (also meshing is super addictive once it actually works out - no one ever warned me! :D)

ToastFluteDefaultReplacement_0 - Replaces the glass with the new mesh but doesn't change the illusion that it's empty (no idea why maxis didn't do anything with the texture to make it appear filled, tho )

ToastFluteDefaultReplacement_1 - Replaces the glass with the new mesh and makes the glass appear to be actually filled

I also made the glass a little lower so it doesn't look quite so much like they're eating it, or stab their faces

UPDATE:
Thanks to Nysha, I found out that both versions do also replace the glass used with the toast interactions at any table, restaurant or at home


Anyway, feel free to edit around on this mesh as you like, you don't even have to credit me with this, I did get the basic shape from a free 3D model download page myself, so I can't take credit for it. All I did was editing it quite a bit so it would look nice-ish in the game :3

The glasses come with the maxis toasting bottle you find under miscellanous>party, there are no changes to the name or price of the bottle.

To install, just toss it into your download folder as usual, just remember, like with any other default replacement, you can only use on version at a time.

You can, however, keep both files in your download folder in case you want to swap between the versions if you change your folder settings and make the file type extensions visible, before you change the ".package" to ".off" with the version you don't want to use for your next game session (you can ignore the windows warning there, it doesn't make the file unusable).
If you want to use the other version, change the file type back to .package and change it to .off with the other (this is by the way basically what the SimsCleanPackInstaller does automatically if you en- or disable a package and works with any default replacement, because it simply makes the file invisble for the game, just remember to always only have one default replacement of a kind enabled before you start your game)^^


I hope you and your simmies have fun with it

Polygon Counts:
2160 for either version which is as I was recently informed (<honestly I have no idea what's high or low poly at this point, just a beginner with the whole meshing thing) 'somewhat high poly' so I'll take the MTS Staff's word for that
