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" !!)
Enjoy

Thank you for sharing your wonderful mesh. It is ideal for my victorian and regency sims. Will there be a recolour without the decoration (plate etc) so I can also use it for my medeval sims?

Not difficult: I add an Alpha to my recolor, I call it "recol 03" and... you can download it

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

Oooooo I love it!

I really would like this for my medieval neighbourhood. But the mesh and the recol 01 are invalid, corrupted it says! Oh no!
Do you know what's going on? Maybe you could re-upload it? I don't know if other people have this problem too?

First: fantastic object - just what I was looking for I downloaded this for my mid west sim
but: I have ALL EPs and stuff packs installed and I am having problems with my Sims attempting to pick up leftovers/clean up and as a result wandering about with an empty hand sticking out (even when they sleep) so I chose to delete from my lot.
can you advise what may be the problem, because I really want to use the object.....
