This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.


This set contains a fixed version of Ed's Medieval Stone Hearth and 20+ recolors.

The object itself was unable to be recolored due to an error, however the problem has been corrected. You absolutely need this new version for any recolors of the stove to show up in your game or to make any more recolors of the object. Just add the new stove to your downloads folder and make sure to delete the previous version. All credit goes to Edta and the item retains its original ID number.

20 recolors of the stove are available in various styles of stone, brick and stucco. Each color comes in two options: a) Removed stuff on the counter and cauldron OR b) Remaining stuff on the counter and cauldron. I figured some people might want to use OMSPs to put their own items on the shelf or to make the stove more versatile for non-medieval hoods. Also, you can move a counter (as shown in the picture) into the spot making a usable prep surface.

I downloaded the first one, red brick, and got your whole Temp folder. While I'm grateful that you share so much, I really don't need it. *g*

Thanks for the fix and recolors, though!

DutchXfan - There must be an error with the site because I just checked my rars and downloaded them and I didn't get any such 'temp' folders. Just the files I packaged. In any case my temp folder is way bigger than 2mb.

I just downloaded it and didn't get a temp folder either.

Thank you for the fix and recolours. Now I wish I had time to play

PearDrops - I cant put them all in one .rar as it exceeds the file size limits on MTS2. It's available on my personal site as a single download for anyone that wants the entire collection.

I don't play medieval 'hoods, but this will be absolutely perfect for my more rustic Sims. I think the coloured stone one is my favourite - but I love them all, really. Thank you so much for sharing!

Thank you for making this so versatile! It's going to be perfect for my medieval hood and I can use it If I decide to use a modern hood too! You rock! I love all the recolors you made as well!

***Doing the happy dance!***

This is one of my favorite medieval stoves...so thanks for giving a great bit of life to etna's stove. The recolours are incredible in diversity! Thank you immensely!

This is brilliant Sunni, though for some reason when I added it to my downloads folder it didn't overwrite the original. I haven't tested my game yet so don't know if it will cause a crash or not.

#16 Old 4th May 2010 at 1:02 PM
Help! I had to pause a download yesterday, and now I'm getting errors when I tried to unzip 19, 20, and the fixed version. For some reason ever after deleting the corrupt folders and re-downloading fresh ones I still get this message and have missing files from the folders. Is there any way you could upload 19, 20, and the fixed version on MTS, or gimme the link to GoS where you might have also uploaded this beauty?

cursed.martyr - If the updated version doesn't overwrite the original stove, simply find the original stove file in your downloads folder and delete it. You need only the new, updated stove for recolors to work. I can't imagine that having both stoves in you DL folder would cause a crash, most likely you just wouldn't see the recolors show up until you deleted the original.

thefaerie - All the stove recolors are uploaded separately in this thread. I have just test downloaded the ones you mentioned and they were in working order. I suggest you re-download them. Otherwise I do not have them available any where else except on my personal site as one large download.

Everything seems to be working okay Sunni. I tested my game last night and even with both stove's in the re-colours all show up and it doesn't appear to effect the functions of it in any way.

thefaerie- GOS is down for me too and has been for a few days now.

9nna - It would be useful to know what antivirus program you are using and the type of virus you believe to be found. I just downloaded this file from MTS2 and scanned it, as well as opened/used it with no problems. I have Avira & Eset + a massive firewall. I got a dialer long ago so I don't take chances with viruses. If anyone else has problems please let me know.

I didn't have the first one. Does that mean I still need to download the last file? And can I only download one recolor instead of all of them?

You do not need the original stove file since I have updated it. You must download the 'fixed' version of the stove here and each of the recolors are separate so you can pick and choose which ones you prefer.
