The original Espresso Machine had the counter base and counter top as the two recolorable subsets so that it could match the Club counters. This CEP-Extra removes the counter meshes and makes the actual Espresso Machine have the two recolorable subsets so it can be used with any counter or counter height surface. I've added the Function - Init BHAV from the espresso machine into the package as well so that it can be placed over any other mesh, aka counters, without needing cheats.

Note that it will not place onto counter slots, two tile objects won't place into slots. I've also added a game play image of how the espresso machine works when over a counter/island mesh, notice the direction of the machine on islands. If you place it the opposite way it is unusable, it must have the front of the espresso machine where the bar stools would go.

This will conflict with Menaceman's Mapping fix, but it is no longer needed as this completely removes the counters.

Thank you so much for this!! Idk why I'm so excited over an espresso machine lol.

I noticed one thing though, I'm turning witheredlilies' default replacement into a recolor, but this one (the grip?) isn't recolorable like the other one. It's not a problem at all imo, but I just thought I'd let you know!

Thank you for taking the time to upload this, this will be useful since it can set on most counter. I going to change the Maxis espresso machine and use this one,
Question please, will this affect the fix by Havelock that was added by Numenor in the CEP 9.20 version that I already have ? Will the counter still work? Or do I have to remove Havelock fix or it do not matter.
Me? Sarcastic? Never.

@vegan-kaktus - I've updated the files, I didn't realize that EA had put three of the four levers into one subset and the one lever in another.

@Simonut - The CEP by havelock has no effect on this since that was for counters and not the espresso machine. However, you no longer need the fix by menaceman since his mapping fix was of the counters, which I removed.

If any lots have espresso machines when this is installed, the existing machines won't have the ability to be placed over other objects, and will need to be re-bought.
