"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.

I've never worked with the mini-fridge much, but now I am working on a trailer park in Strangeville. THANK YOU I hadn't seen how much I needed this until I saw this item. Kudos!

One glitch I found, you can put leftovers in, but they go into a blackhole and cannot be retrieved lol
