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 everyone

Numenor and I have been working on this new object and it's finally finished

We bring you a new fully working Soda Machine. You can choose between 8 different beverages to drink. It can be found in the buy catalogue in the appliances/fridges section and will work in both residential and community lots.

It should work with all expansions, but if you find any issues please report them here.

If you need any food to wash down with this drinks please check out our site for some amazing foods The Sims Vault

*BUG* Ok, there's 1 bug we have found that prevents the object from being deleted once you place it on a surface. To delete the object, open the console (ctrl+shift+c) then type "moveObjects on" (without the quotes). Then grab the object and place it on the floor, now you should be able to delete it. This seems to happen because the object was cloned from the fridge which is placed on the floor NOT on surfaces. We're working to fix this bug.

Style: Modern
Room: Kitchen Study Outdoor
Maxis Flags: Not Applicable

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 a similiar issue to ForestBalrog on page 7

"Just thought I'd say I love it & it's perfect in every way, except for:
I bought it for one of my families today. I used it once; worked perfectly. The second time I used it, before my sim got to the machine I cancelled it to do something else. A few moments later I tried again...this time the menu said:
I clicked.
Then it said Something about meals, I clicked it...
then there were a bunch of different options that said the EXACT same thing. I clicked it. My Sim walked up to it, and I got an object error. I also couldn't delete it even WITH moveobjects on after placing it on the floor. I had to add it to my inventory to delete it.
So, I was just curious....has anyone else had this problem & is it fixable? "

Except, my male sim can use it just fine, yet my female sim gets the "make many, make single plate" options. Huh?

Very nice looking, but when I downloaded it it didn't seem to be "functional" as advertised. Does it only work on community lots, maybe?

I have exactly the same problem like celestwiljams.

The first time, it worked all great and my man gets his Coca-Cola (even in Germany, thats pretty cool), but the second time he wanted to drink something, he only found the option "Zubereiten" (make). and then the "Cola-Food-Plate". He moved to the machine, stood in front of it and moved away and couldn't take a drink out of it.

His wife only found the option "viele Zubereiten" (make many) and the same, she could'nt get the drink from the machine.

May someone help us ???

EDIT: Now I installed it again and it works now, but theres another problem to solve: Only the person who has drunk the first 4 or 5 glasses can use the machine normally, the other only get the option make or make many.

okay, this machine looks great, but 1 correction regarding "moveObjects on"...
u need to type it in as "move_objects on" (without the quotation marks), or it won't work. believe me, i've tried it.
just wanted to let u know so ppl don't get frustrated.

raptureSIMmer94, in my game, I NEVER type it with an underscore, but it doesn`t care what case I type it in. I always use moveobjects 1 and moveobjects 0 and it works fine for me.

dear exnem,

Would it be any option to convert the sodamachine from sims 2 to sims 3.
Because it would very nice to have them in the sims 3.

yours faithfully,

Two problems-Grab area too big, and sims use it to put away leftovers. Other than that, awesome! :D
#248 Old 28th Feb 2012 at 7:46 AM
Exnem, Numenor,Thank you both so very much! I'm a big time coca-cola fan & this is awesome! You both are fantastic modders and it's great to see your new creation!!

I'm grabbing it, though I'm not quite sure what the above poster meant of grab area being too big.. I'm thinking sims are putting their used items all around the coca cola machine? Right? Gonna go install.. Thanks again! ^.^

LOL! I trailed out of Sims 3 content.. I still grabbed this though. I do occasionally play sims 2 still. Thank you!!

I meant that when you use the hand tool, you can grab the air around the machine and it gets picked up, It's one of my biggest pet peeves about CC. I can't grab the counter it's on or some of the nearby objects, I instead grab the machine.
They will also act like the machine is a fridge, by putting leftovers in there, doing the open door animation and everything Because it's cloned from a fridge, that makes sense. I wonder if the grab area problem (If anyone got my meaning, sorry if I can't describe it well, haha) Is because since it's cloned from a fridge, it has the grab area of a fridge? Just a thought.

I like trains.
...and inside jokes.
