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 Guys,
Would you test this for me please?
Made with SimPE v0.33, Milkshape, MTS2 Mesh tool and is EP Ready with unique (registered) GUID.

I thought it was time for another Kitchen Accessory ... It's a plastic coated wire washing up rack ... with a choice of dishes (or not) ... and choice of colours (for both the rack and the dishes).

Once's nothing complicated :confused: ...and just for decoration ... (your Sims can 'view' it) ...but there seemed to me to be a need for this, as someone mentioned it in a previous post.

It can be positioned with the dishes facing front, back or side...(plus, there's a little surprise on the back of the plates ...! :Pimp: ). If you use the two cheats (move, snap) you can place additional small objects next to it (see pics)... but works fine without the cheats as a single tile item.

It can be found in Decorations - All (the infinity sign).
It also appears under Sculptures (because it was cloned from a vase) and I don't know how to remove it from that catagory. If anyone knows...please pm me.

Recolours: As usual... please feel free to recolour and post to non-paying websites. However, please do not post the original master file (which contains the mesh) because it may need ammending as a result of your feedback. Please pm me first before posting recolours - I always reply.

Please let me know if you have any problems with it..

Thanks for testing!

Hi. Great object, I can see a lot of potential with it but could I make a small request? How about making a recolour for dirty dishes? Something like that would look great in my slob's bachelor pad!

I was asked to make some recolours of your drainer to match my dinnerware defaults. And as I found a note about asking you first before recolouring. And as a good girl, I ask you: May I made some recolours for your plates to match these ones?


PS: Your PM quota is exceeded, that´s why I´m asking here.
