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.

Birchwood Kitchen Set

The Birchwood kitchen set is composed of 4 rar files.

1.The main set contains 5 “birchwood glass door cabinets with contents”.
2.The “birchwood pan rack”. This package was made separate because it was a late decision to create and include it with the set.
3.The “birchwood counter re-colors”. These are the club counters re-colored with the birchwood main texture to match the rest of the set.
4.The “birchwood mahogany re-color set”. This file contains recolors for the entire set using a mahogany texture.

The reason I chose to pack them in 4 separate files is to avoid confusion and all kinds of files for you to download. The cabinet rar containing the 5 cabinets use the repository feature. This means if you re-color cabinet 1 you re-color all 5 cabinets at once.

The file containing the "Pan Rack" has to be recolored separately. Again, due to its late addition to the set.

The set was made using the latest version of SimPE and the objects can be used without the E.P. or with it of course...

Though there are contents in the cabinets the poly counts are extremely adequate…
The matching "Birchwood Dining set" can be found here: :howdy:

In being that I am very big on thanking people and giving credit I will mention that my learning to utilize the repository feature would never be without consulting “Numenor” and “RGiles”.

Note: I also noticed that someone commented on “DCabs” cabinets saying someone already made cabinets. RGiles also created a heck of a set in the “Scarborough” kitchen as well as WDSBriana. We are all different creators with different styles producing variety. I can speak for myself in saying, variety and personal style is what I am offering with my set and it is not meant to step on any toes…

EnJoy…

I absolutely love it, but I can't seem to get it. If I just click the link, I get only a full page of text, which I've experienced before, but in this case rightclicking and choosing "save link target" doesn't work either, I just get a php getfile thinky. Any ideas?

emmcreations: I am not sure what the problem is your encountering... I just went to the first post clicked the package and it downloaded in a milisecond... Sometimes the site has high volume traffic and can be somewhat slow... I really do not think it is your problem though... If you can not figure it out you may want to post in the help thread for the site... Good luck to you...

I am not sure about this, I have noticed in numerous custom creations that the objects do not hide when the walls are dropped... I will look into this phenom and adjust it if it is possible...

Hey, Thank you so much for taking the time to create this set. It's true that RGiles "Scarborough" kitchen set is great, but some of us still don't have the EP and don't plan on getting it and you need it for that set in it's entirety.
I'm sure I'm not alone when I say you've made a fantastic set of cabinets and I really appreciate it.

No. You only need SimPE if you are creating or recoloring.

Thank you so much!! I have recolored them in 3 colors and they are on my second Yahoo group.

The Url is:

http://games.groups.yahoo.com/group...4_Sims_2_Again/



There are 3 folders in there and pictures can be found in each
folder AND on Photobucket.com for when the bandwidth runs out.

I am hoping that you will view the photos on photobucket and use the
bandwidth for downloading the sets.

the url to photobucket is:

http://photobucket.com/albums/a340/Herself4Sims2/

There are 2 photo albums there. One for the Cobalt Kitchen and the
other has pics of both Yellow kitchens in it.

Hope you like what I did with your gorgeous meshes. (((((HUGS)))))

God bless,
Herself

I just checked out your albums... Not only were the re-colors of the cabinets beautiful (I love the gold pans) but also the entire kitchens are very well done...

Terrific work!!!
