"The SupaFridge" : mini-fridge that functions as full-sized fridge *UPDATED*

Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This has been requested a number of times and never answered (to my knowledge), so I thought I'd give it a whirl. I can see why Maxis changed their mind about making this a full-function fridge. I'll spare you the details and simply say that it didn't work.

Nevertheless, I figured out a workaround and got it to function the same as a full-sized fridge. The only hitch to my knowledge is the fact that there's no "get bottles from minifridge and juggle" animation (they must have given up before making that one), so if you choose to juggle you will see the animation for getting bottles from a full-sized fridge. Other than that it works like a charm. You can get baby bottles and anything else you would normally do with a regular fridge.

Enjoy!

**UPDATE**
If you downloaded within the first 12 hours of me posting this, you need to re-download (my apologies). I was looking at the "baby bottles" option and didn't realize that you couldn't serve larger meals from the mini fridge. This has been fixed, and it now serves all sized meals.

I've also un-checked the compatibility with just the base game for the time being. As I stated below, the Object Workshop reported that the minifridge was an Original item, not a Uni item, so I had checked off the box. Can someone with just the base game let me know if this is the case?

Note: I un-checked the Nightlife compatibility box for the time being, until I get further reports on whether or not you can buy groceries downtown with this fridge installed at home (and of course, you need to eat some food so your fridge isn't full before you go).

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Does this really work with original since u've ticked original AND Uni?? I thought the half fridge only came with Uni??
Or is this a totally new mesh that works with the base game only as well? Cos that's my impression of ticking the Original box....
I only ask cos it's sooo beautiful, lol... but I don't have Uni.. and I want

It looks like it requres Uni. Notice it's beneath the counter. Good work.

Oh wow... you have no idea how much I've wanted this! My trekkie sims thank you, now they'll have their "food replicators" (a very, very tiny kitchenette ) at long last. Ah! And the bulky refridgerators won't block my view when playing. :D

So, I'll download it and try it out with NL, and keep my fingers crossed that it will work.



Just wanted to report that it works fine for me in NL, at least so far, and I have a ton of hacks. Simply brilliant, thanks again! :D

who wants to juggle the bloody bottles anyway!

thanks targa, this is great :D


edit:
just checked this out with NL........it doesn't work other than to give the juggle bottles option and serve dessert. the meal options just give you luncheon meat sarnies, cereal etc like it used to. don't know about baby bottles and food as i have no babies or toddlers at present
shame, but it is still a great object :D

I was wondering if it is a new object linked to the original mini fridge, will we still have our custom recolors for it? Or is it just the same fridge with added options? I hope that is clear... :D

Oh poop. I've been wanting this for ages. Maybe it does only work with University. Thank you for your work Targa! It might not work for me, but I'm sure it works for someone here. :jig:

I checked off the compatibility with the base game (no expansions) because when I went to clone it in SimPE, the Object Workshop reports it as being from the original game, not University. Did the game not have it until Uni came out? If it doesn't work for the base game, someone let me know please.

OK, I just tested this and found out that it's not giving the option to make larger meals. My apologies but I didn't even know about that (never used the minifridge before). I'll make a note of it in the original post and take a look at the package.

As for CEP/recoloring, no, it's just the base minifridge cloned.

And as far as capacity... I toyed with the idea of changing it, but figured it wouldn't be very realistic if this could hold as much food as the bigger fridge.
