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.

Your sims are flat broke and can't afford a real fireplace? Let them use this special trashcan! It costs almost nothing: the trashcan is kindly provided by SimCity town administration, and the logs are kindly provided by Mother Nature Matches not included

Though this "trashcan" is a fully functional fireplace, you can get it from the Buy Mode catalog, section Appliance -> Misc.
Place it on your lot and use it like a normal fireplace.

Custom fireplaces usually require special installation methods. Not this one! Just unpack the package to your Downloads folder (there is NO need for additional TXT files, NOR for the Scriptorium, in order to install this fireplaces).
To uninstall, just remove the file "Numenor_StreetFire-in-Trashcan.package" from your Downloads.

It's fully compatible with any game, including the base-game only.

The trashcan is recolourable (only the metal part), though I really can't think why one should want to recolour it Anyway, if you want, just load the package into Object Workshop and create a recolour package as usual.

Do NOT clone - Do NOT repost anywhere.
It's ALLOWED: to create recolours for this object (and post them on any site, including paysites), BUT you can't include the mesh in your recolour: you must give credits to me for the mesh, and provide a link to this thread.
It's ALLOWED: to include my creations in your lots, BUT the lots must be uploaded on 100% free sites (except the Exchange), and you must provide credits and a link to this thread.

NOTE - This object has been created using my "1-tile Fireplace without Chimney" Enhanced Template

It is awsome!!! Thank you. I don't have any homeless type sims, but this will look great on the streets for the dark alley/abandoned industrial feel.

Thanks! You have the greatest ideas.

I've never been married, but I tell people I'm divorced so they won't think something is wrong with me.
