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.
This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I wasn't at all happy with the default items the game gives you to make a bakery with, so I made this set. I wanted something warm looking and down to earth, with stuffed shelves overflowing with food. This set contains decorative foods, labels, a sign and menus, decorative items that fit on top of the Decra-Chill, and a half-sized Decra-Chill that works like a normal Decra-Chill but looks like a counter top display. I've also included a collection file for the set.

Everything will show up under Misc/Decorative/Sculptures, except the signs, which are painting recolors, and the half-sized Decra-Chill, which shows up with the other shelves under surfaces.

Quick breakdown: You'll need to use the Moveobjects cheat to get the food inside the Decra-Chill display cases. For the decorations meant to go on top of the Decra-Chill, keep in mind that it can only be placed on a fully stocked shelf. So either stock the shelf up before putting them on, or place them down first and then move the Decra-Chill underneath the decoration. The same principle applies to the labels--they only work on stocked shelves. The only expansion pack dependancies I know of is for the tall menu, which is a recolor of University's bulletin board and relies on that, and you probably need Open For Business for the Half-sized Decra-Chill. Nearly everything else is a new mesh. You'll need the CEP package for at least some of the items, like usual.

Usage: Feel free to recolor, but please link back here for the meshes, and don't upload to pay sites. I want to be able to download anything you make.

Additional: There is a problem with selling these when they are in the Decra-Chill case. They suffer from the misplaced stock sign bug, like all non-food items do when placed where they don't belong. I did everything in my power to try to convert these items to food, but there are just too many problems! So, I'm really sorry. If you want to sell them, you can sell them on normal shelves, or sell them in the Decra-Chill if you're willing to restock by hand, or simply use everything as decoration to flesh out your bakery.

Some info on the items now:

DECORATIONS:
The "Decra Deco" items are decorations for the top of the Decra-Chill.

Poly Count: 444

Decra Deco - Bread Rolls
Poly Count: 1136

Decra Deco - Gourmet Boxed Cookies
Poly Count: 92

Decra Deco - Decorative Tins
Poly Count: 152

Decra Deco - Biscotti Jars
Poly Count: 598

Decra Deco - Bags of Cookies
Poly Count: 234

Antique Wall Shelf - Jams
Poly Count: 157

Antique Wall Shelf - Flour
Poly Count: 127

Signs:
Store Sign - A recolor of "In the Beginning" painting.
Two Double Menus - Recolors of "An Anonymous Masterpiece" painting. I chose these because they fit over the Decra-Chill nicely.
Tall Menu - A recolor of University's "Stick Em' Up" Bulletin board.

Antique Wooden Labels:
Poly Count: A slim 24.
These miniature labels might be too easily glanced over for some, but I think they add a great touch. There are six, for both the bottom and top shelf, in the left, middle, and right positions. They are supposed to go in front of food in the Decra-Chill, to make it look like its labeled. The letters are in gibberish and too small to make out distinctly, so there's no need for English labels for every single food.

Half-sized Decra-Chill:
Poly Count: 452
Recolors: Comes in standard Maxis medium and dark browns. Uses a custom pale gold tray, my preferred color, which you can get from my first mod here (pretty crappy for the most part, but the gold tray is pretty). Use these as part of the counter for your bakery for an authentic look (but they are NOT a counter), put them against the wall or create an island in the middle of your floor. It works just like a normal Decra-Chill.

PICTURES:
I don't think that individual pictures of every item would be a good idea, so here are a few group pictures. Please forgive me if some of it is redundant--I hate taking screenshots more than anything, and itemizing this many items nearly kills me. But you should be able to get a solid idea of the set from these, most of it is covered.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

I have never seen a more incredible set. I am in awe and can barely believe the detail that you put into this. I am so excited about getting it into my game. I think that in the food area there are so many interesting directions to go and the fact that they are statues...perfect. No rotting food! LOL

Great Job, for the set and for your ability to share. Thank you so much!

I always wondered why Maxis didn't put donuts in the foods for the bakery. I guess they don't like cops. LOL
Beautiful work. I tip my policeman's hat to you.

If I understand right , your chill cases are fully functioning cases and will keep the Maxis food from spoiling?
Will the Simmies try to buy your food, or will they just see it as a deco objects?
I LOVE your set, just want to make sure what will happen when the whinning , foot stomping customers will do when they come into the beautiful realistic bakery!

This is adorable! I am planning on downloading this.

I have to agree- OFB default bakeries are kinda cold... This one is very warm and friendly. I can almost smell the fresh bread!

I've already got a whole bakery all set up with this fantastic set!!

One quick question: when a sim buys an item, the restock sign shows up, but when you actually restock, the item disappears, and you have to rebuy it. Wondering if you're aware of that, and if anyone else has had this happen?

(Love it all though, really do!)

I didn't think about it at first (until I actually began placing them in my bakery, and with the mention of the disappearance above) but if these go onto shelves using moveobjects on, when they are set for sale and bought, and then one switches from live to buy/build mode, the restock sign will disappear and reappear across the lot on the other side of the road near the vehicle exit portal. There's a way to fix that here.

Edit: Okay, so, that doesn't actually work... I batch fixed all my downloads and these (and other decorative objects) aren't placeable in the coolers - which I guess makes sense since they're not technically food. However, does have this hack that may fix the misplaced restock signs when placing objects with moveobjects on that may help anyone experiencing that problem.

I'm gonna cry if I have to wait through another 20 minute load time only to find that doesn't work either. I love these so much, I really want to be able to use them properly.

Second Edit: Well, I got Numenor's hack that's supposed to fix the misplaced signs, moveobjects'd these into place, marked for sale, sold one of your bakery items, switched to buy mode and back into live mode, and... misplaced sign. I'm going to keep trying to figure a way to make it work, even if I just have to stick these on the Illuminations shelves or something, as I MUST have these beautiful items in my bakery, but it appears placing them in the coolers, at least with the methods I've tried, is not gonna work correctly right now.

Third Edit: The restock sign issue appears to be related directly to placing non-food objects into the cooler... I tried with another decorative custom object, the doughnuts from this set, and a Maxis decorative item. Moveobjects'd them into the cooler (with Numenor's hack I linked in my second edit) and all had the misplaced sign problem - placing the same objects on a variety of other surfaces with or without moveobjects on did not result in the same problem - the signs stayed where they were supposed to.

I reported my findings on Numenor's thread for the hack... at this point to me it looks like it comes down to that darn cooler. Perhaps a hacked version of the cooler could be created that does not require moveobjects to place other objects inside, or the hack updated to also work for the coolers, or... something. In the mean time, I'm going to just use these on shelves and tables and hope there's another option to fix the issue soon.

Gorgeous! I have a TON of bakery related stuff from other sites already, but yours are so fantastic and tasty looking that I will stuff them into my already overflowing downloads folder as well.

I will definetly keep my eye out for your creations in the future.
