My sim is a sloppy chef with questionable taste in decor. I can deal with that. What I can't deal with? His green tile countertops turning PURPLE (!?) and the tiles getting smaller (?!) every time he spills food on them. Oh Maxis. Still surprising me after all these years..... even when it comes to glitches.

This tiny little mod makes it so the green tile "Club Room" countertop (and matching island) won't turn purple when dirty. Only the green tile countertop is affected. The others weren't broken. This is a basegame counter. Yup. Been broken for 5 years, apparently.

Stick it in your downloads folder and forget about it.

I saw this happen but I thought I had downloaded something that caused it. Glad to know it was EAxis all along! Thank you for the fix.

Sadly typical of EA. This is why I don't bother with TS3.
Thank you for the fix, that purple was rather annoying.

xD This is so funny. I completely forgot that this counter did this. Thank you for making a fix. ( Though it is pretty funny when it turns purple... x) )

Eaxis... They really should leave this sort of thing to the end user.

Oh, wait; they did!

Thanks for doing damage control.

Thanks so much, this counter is way too pretty to be ruined by idiotic glitches.

When I was a kid, I never used these types of counters so I never noticed it until 7 years after getting the game
