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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Please redownload if you have experienced interaction problems with cooking on my stove or if you downloaded the temporary walk-through version. I resolved the interaction problem and returned the original footprint so all 6 tiles are not walkable anymore.

Hello again!

Let me present you another piece of Russian culture.

The interior of typical Russian peasant houses in earlier times was quite simple, even severe, deprived of decorative furniture. But there always was a dominant feature inside any log hut and in people’s life. All the family got together near it in the evening to embroider, to carve wood or just to tell stories. It was a large clay stove, occupying one corner to the left or right of the main door. It was not only the means of heating the house and cooking meals, baking clay pottery or drying herbs and fruits, but also a sleeping place that could accommodate ten to twenty people. I believe it was quite comfy to spend long frosty Russian winters on a warm stove! So comfy that some characters of Russian fairy tales could spend over 30 years on it (not because they were unable to walk, but just didn’t want to leave such a nice place) or they could go to conquest pretty girls right on it like on a car! There are dozens tales, songs, proverbs where the Russian Stove is mentioned. You can read, if you want, one of those stories here.

Your Sims, unfortunately, won’t be able to sleep on my stove, but they quite can cook delicious traditional Russian meals.

This stove comes in two recolors: white and tidy one for an ordinary peasant family, and a shabby one which could make a good addition for a Baba Yaga log hut. Be careful! She also bakes strangers in it! So don’t be surprised if your neighbors start disappearing.

You can find it in Cooking Appliances.

Default Problems with stove interactions
It's a wonderful looking stove. However, I've been testing it and have come across a couple of problems. I'll e-mail you directly to explain them. For those who haven't used it yet, see if you can get a sim to complete the action of creating a single serving of toaster pastry and creating spaghetti. Those are the two interactions my sims could not complete. I hope this can be fixed, as this is a wonderful looking object!

Let me know if you use any of my recolors in a story, video, etc. I'd like to see it!

I like the things you do, and I especially like the way you present them, sharing small pieces of your country life with us... Thank you...

And Baba Yaga remembered my childhood, when my sister read me stories about her and also about the prince who was too lazy to leave his stove... Which I didn't really understand, because we had a stove in the kitchen, and a really, really hot one, and I couldn't imagine how someone would want to stay on such an inconfortable thing, much less sleep on it !

So thank you for that too... And keep up the good work...

I like to share the things I know and Russian culture is so rich!

As for the stove, a real Russian stove is not as hot outside as it might seem. And you quite could put your head inside it and wouldn't be burnt. Just because the fire and hot coals are quite deep inside the stove and you won't reach them without special devices. That is why there were such long oven forks and baker's shovels. And the stove walls are pretty thick. Thanks to that they don't get too hot but can keep the heat for quite a long time. The stove actually needs feeding with firewood only twice a day. So the rest time of the day can be spent for laziness.
