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.

Hi all,

As requested by Patul, I have created this fireplace which can be used only for cooking (not as fireplace!!):

Some users have reported to me a bug with my cooking fireplace mesh: when you build a floor just on the room where you place the cooking fireplace, you can see a horrible piece of the mesh on your second floor. I’m sorry for that and I have fixed this bug! Please re-download the new fixed mesh it will replace the old one.

Very useful for old houses or castles and decorative too:

I have done 2 recolors of it:

as requested I add a new recolor w/o deco, called recol 03.

I hope you like them! (please "comments" and "thanks" !!)

*Do not post my creations to the exchange!
*Recolor my meshes is allowed (free only) but please link back to my post for original meshes.
Do not include my meshes with your recolor zip files.
*Including in a house lot is allowed (free only) with credits and link.
*And please forgive my bad english, it's not my native language

This is fantastic!

Do you think you'll do more recolours or a fireplace similiar to it that's just decorative?

Oh thank you maylin, this is really wonderful - so perfect for the less modern homes!

What a neat idea, this is wonderful!

Which stove was this cloned from? I was interested in knowing the hunger rate.

Thanks everybody! I'm glad to see you like them

Great idea Moononsun, I thank you very much

Magicmoon: I cloned the "Dialectric Ready Prep Range" to create the mesh.

Sorry I can't take requests anymore!
And I will probably never convert my creations for TS2 to TS3.
