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.

by Boblishman & Numenor (aka "Dynamic Duo")

Numenor and I have got together to bring you a truly amazing, fully working ceramic hob that can be placed on any counter top.... including islands!

It comes in 4 'flavours', the default Black one, a white one, a Blue one and a rather luxourius Burgundy. It is fully recolourable, has it's own GUID (so won't replace anything in the game) and is compatible with ALL games.

Polygon count: (wait for this...... TWELVE, yes, 12 (= amazingly low )

(don't you just love this new technology... with it's touch buttons and no horrible knobs and switches....makes a mesh-makers life a dream!)

OK, now on to what it does. ... As usual, all I did was make the mesh and textures..... Numenor has done all the clever stuff....

First, it's the same thickness as a real ceramic hob... and Numenor has managed (god knows how!) to make the pots actually sit exactly on the HOB (which is actually lower than the Maxis gas/electric rings!! :omg: )

1) It can be placed on any counter (including islands)
2) The cooking ring glows red when cooking (no gas flames!)
3) It will get dirty with use and need cleaning
4) There is no don't try and cook anything that needs an oven...the option will not be there! ...)
5) No, your Sim's will NOT put other objects onto will only be used for cooking...
6) Yes, it CAN catch fire and burn your house down, just like any Maxis stove
7) They can still use the cupboard underneath the hob (in your dreams!)

This , therefore, is a Brand New Cooking Appliance, and, surprisingly can be found under....Appliances/Cooking !
Please report any issues (though we've not found any yet) and thanks for testing...

I had one of these in Sims 1 (can't remember where I found it) and now have one for Sims 2. I'll use this one more than any stove. Thank you, so much!

Yeah, I had one for Sims 1 too, and I have often thought of how I'd like one for Sims 2, because it's such a pain to get a nice, matching kitchen when you have to have a big ugly stove/oven right in the middle of it. Thank you both so much! :gidea:

I think it came with the Sims1 (Either LL or HP), can't remember now.

Great job guys! Keep up the good work!
