This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.

This custom content if it is not clothing, may require a seperate download to work properly. This is available at Colour Enable Package (CEP) by Numenor.

A gift for Glorcha.

The University Industrial Steelate Counter and Shiny Tyme Cooktop in AL Wood, LACK and MALM Colours. The Cafeteria-Style Steelate Counter Island is slaved to the Industrial Steelate Counter and both have a dirty and clean state. I'm not happy with the way the AL Wood and MALM stove turned out, unfortunately to have the wood panels in the front and sides of the stove and have it match the counters this is how it turned out.

"The Shiny Tyme Cooktop does not have an oven, and can only be used for foods which do not require an oven. Spawns a cafeteria worker if used in a dormitory or on a community lot outside the primary neighborhood, such as on college lots or downtown."

These are not base game compatible, University is required!

Industrial Steelate Counter: MASTER
Found: Buy Mode > Surfaces > Counters. Price: §560.

Cafeteria-Style Steelate Counter Island: Slave
Found: Buy Mode > Surfaces > Counters. Price: §570.

Shiny Tyme Cooktop:
Found: Buy Mode > Appliances > Cooker. Price: §700.
