Updated for 1.55 and IP


This was requested a while back, and last week I finally got around to making it. Basically this is a modded object that will cut your gems and smelt your metal ores, and also enlarge them on demand.

It can not, however, enlarge your space rocks. Trying to do so may result in an undesirable outcome and I take no responsibility for any damage or loss of those rocks You are very welcome to try though, just save your game first if you love your space rocks. No, it won't cause a BFBVFS, it's just a small "feature" I added for fun.

It's cloned from the fortune cookie maker, so the animation is a bit off. But let's just pretend the machine needs to be fed to process our gems and metals It won't have any animation if you don't have WA.

It's available in the catalog under Misc Appliances and it costs §50,000. All types of cuts are available (provided you have the required EPs installed), including "Random". The machine will also produce a pile of gem dust for every gem cut.

There's also a new experimental feature I've just added, transfiguration. It basically uses the game's code, but only for rock/gem/metal. You can put less than 8 things in and it'd still do the transfiguration.

Also, due to popular demand lately, I added a custom icon so you can find it in the catalog easily. It may be not too pretty, but it holds a special meaning to me so do not complain


Compatibility: 1.50 and up.

What is the fortune cookie maker? Is it from WA? This machine looks like it would be a convenient way to alter the raw materials that are piling up in inventory, rather than sending them out!

It seems this is base game compatible. But isn't the original machine fro WA??

It should be compatible with just the base game, but I can't test it. If someone can test it for me, that'd be great.

This is neat idea. With WA, gem and metal collecting may be the fastest way of making big bucks in the game, and this just makes it even more efficient.

Strange... I have WA, and when I click on this it tells me no interactions are available. I have my game patched with the latest patches, which (I think) is one past 2.2.8. Could that be why it isn't working?

Nevermind. I read your Book of Skills thread, and realized I hadn't reinstalled the framework thingy when I installed WA. That fixed it.

I don't have WA...and it works wonderfully!

(I recently reinstalled my game and updated to the latest patch.)

Oh...and I'm excited. I'm going to make my favorite sim into a miner.

Thanks Treeag! I'm going to try it out. I really like how it looks--situated in the corner in your pic it reminds me of the Charm Maker in MM TS1.

I'm assuming this cuts everything for free? I really like the idea of being able to cut gems myself, but I don't allow most of my sims any freebies. Any chance for a version that charges an appropriate amount? (including the total cost of gems that require multiple cuts to make)

#21 Old 18th Feb 2010 at 11:23 PM
well, doesn't work for me. I've WA, Loft-Stuff and newest patch and got no interactions at all.

Well, the machine itself costs you 50 grand. Besides, you don't pay to make nectars after you buy nectar maker either so... yeah I might make a version that charges money if many people want it.

Read the instructions in the overview tab. Basically you need to have d3dx9_31.dll in base game dir and also all EP/SP dir.
