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.

Nature's Market Food Displays

Hungry for Grilled Cheese?

Starving for a burger?

Wish you had that extra something to make those Lunch Meat Sandwiches complete?

Now you can buy, yes buy that much needed accessory to that perfect meal with Nature's Market Bread and Roll displays!

After all, where can one find a decent baked good in the Maxis world of Sim Shopping?

These objects are not decorations! No cheats are needed for their placement. Find them in the following places:

Appliances ---> Large

Food ---> Appliances
Shopping ---> Appliances

Sims can buy food stock from the displays, just as they would from the Maxis objects. They will not buy individual bags of bread or rolls, only food stock.

These objects function with Open For Business. It will empty as stock is purchased.

The shelves were cloned from the Maxis "VeggiStuff Produce Bin". They were made with Uni, NL, OFB, FFS, Pets, Seasons

They were tested in my game, and also in a game without Pets or Seasons.

They absolutely require OFB to work, due to the "empty" and "full" versions, and possibly some other code too.

I do not recommend using unless you absolutely have the first three EPs (Uni, NL, OFB required!). If you do so without those EPs, do at your own risk, but if it does work, please report back to this thread!


Each object comes with two color options for the food, and one color option for the shelf. The bread has a choice of white or wheat (wheat is pictured), and the rolls have a choice of hamburger or hot dog (hamburger is pictured).

Both objects are fairly simple to recolor! The food and shelf can both be recolored, as long as my policy is followed.

Sorry, there are no shadows for these objects. I did not like the way the shadows were appearing against the back wall and along the ground, so I did away with them. You may personally modify this to suit your tastes, as long as this modification is for personal use only!

No recolors or lots including the object(s) on pay sites, or as part of donation sets.

Do not upload to the Exchange!


As you can see, the displays are a bit intensive.

Compare the meshes to Maxis "VeggiStuff Produce Bin"

Faces- 1505
Vertices - 1012

As it was originally made for my own personal use, due to wanting a bit more realism, I tried to add as much to the shelves as possible. If enough requests are made, I will create a smaller version, however, the shelves will not appear as full.

Polygon Counts:
Shelf: Faces - 84 - Vertices - 165

Bread: Faces - 924 - Vertices - 1320

Rolls: Faces - 1288 - Vertices - 1518

I love your bread.

Update: July 2009-I am back now to make invisible and tranparent recolors again in sims 2. You can pm me if you want your objects to be invisible and transparent from now.

Thank you! I am working on a set of two dairy cases now (milk, juice, eggs, butter, cheese), but am running into some troubles with the UVs (read: I have to remap both objects =) )

Whether or not I will expand onto a deli case or not I have not yet decided. But I do hope that you are able to find it! You can check Retail Sims for a decorative meat case, and a lot more too for your stores there.

Very nice looking display! Thank You!

Does anyone have confirmation that UNI is definitely required for these objects to work?

I have all EP's except that one...

Unfortunately I do not have an answer for you on this one, at least not yet. I do have UNI, however, this object I believe came with the base game, and the "empty" version of the mesh was something added with OFB.

As far as I can tell from the "Creator Guidelines" forum (where I figured would be the easiest place to get my answer from), lots made with UNI are the problems, but not necessarily objects.

The item was cloned the Produce Bin, and doesn't have any crazy hacks associated with it. It has a registered GUID and shouldn't conflict with any thing in that matter unless someone has made an object with the same GUID. The only functions of the object are buy, and the OFB options of restocking and setting the price. Unless UNI added some hidden options to the community lot objects that I am unaware of (i.e. pranks, etc), then I can assume that this object would be fine...BUT...

I am no expert on the workings of the game so I cannot recommend giving it a try without UNI. However, I can ask that you report back here if you find that it does or does not work. =)
