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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I always wanted to have a smaller modern 2-tiled fireplace with a mantle to put some clutter on. I wasn't really successful in finding one so I made one. There is no chimney just because I don't like them.
I hope you enjoy the fireplace.

You may recolor the fireplace but please link back to this thread. Thanks!

This is great.. It's hard to find modern furnishings and i hate chimneys so this is perfect =)

Very nice... Makes me think of a gas fireplace. I wonder, if perhaps the risk of fire could be brought down....

I don't get why so many Simmers hate Marsha Bruenig. She actually grows up to be quite pretty if you allow her to.

For some reason I am unable to place this properly in my lots. I can set it down by itself, but when I try to set it against a wall the grid turns red, even with the move_objects cheat. Cannot intersect wall, etc. I guess I have to build around it?

Most people learn by observation, and there are the few who learn by experimentation. And then there are those who actually TOUCH the fire to see if it's really hot.
