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.
Tired of storing your cookies in the bookshelf or that chest from Shang Simla? Well, here's a real cookie jar for your Sims, just like Grammaw's!

Grammaw's Cookie Jar was play tested on a fully-patched base game and works with no expansion or stuff packs installed. Compatible with 1.33 and 1.34 patches. Might work with lower patch levels, but no testing was done below patch 1.33.

I cloned and revised the mesh of the Crocks O'Stuff kitchen clutter object, smallenating it from three jars to one and reducing its footprint to a single tile, and nipping and tucking the shape until I was happy. Bye-bye ugly mushroom stencil! I replaced all the EAxis stencils with 4 new ones. One of the cookie jars has no stencil at all, which will provide much joy for the stencil-haters out there (you know who you are). I reduced the price and the environment score to reflect that. The cookie jar has three CASTable channels. Now for some pictures.

My favorite jar, which says Cookies in Simlish:

Mapping and channel placement, indicated by the three colored patterns:

All the variously varied variations:

No stencil on this jar, for your full recoloring pleasure:

You can find Grammaw's Cookie Jar in the Deco section, under both the Sculpture and Misc. categories (see thumbnail below).

Cost: 25 Simoleans
Environment: 1

Tools used: Milkshape, TSRW, S3PE, Sims 3 Pack MultiInstaller, Illustrator, Photoshop 6.0 and The Gimp

The only custom content to credit in the screenshots is the wallpaper, by me .

Warning: No tossing of cookies will be tolerated by Grammaw!

Polygon Counts:
High/Low Poly Count: 156/42
High/Low Vertices: 138/55
