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.
As requested, a kitchen sink that looks like a kitchen sink. Most animations should be retained if not all.

Edited for question:
Are those potholders I see in the kitchen the new ones in the (I think) sculptures section? They really look great by that sink!

thanks for finally making a sink that belongs in the kitchen, and not the bathroom, it was much needed!

Awsome sink, i love it. Looks great with my collection. One thing though . . . first time i tried to place it in a house i had the cheat MoveObjects on and somehow when i accidently dragged the sink through another item, it caused my game to crash. SO just to be on the safe side, dont try to place this item with that on incase your cursor goes over another item.
:edited: Also, all the animations worked just fine in my game. Nothing looked too weird . . Cant wait to see recolors for this item.

cool diffrent. I use to have a sink like this. I did not like it for washing dishes with no dish washer. But I love the style. Thank you

In my game, the recolors revert to the mesh color when I try to place it in any custom counters.

That's funny, my younger sister just asked me why hadn't Maxis created a realistic kitchen sink, and now I have one. Thanks!
