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.
Update February 2021: Josdio aka GeoSims kindly made a Spanish translation, which is now attached. There are also other TS4 mod Spanish translations at the site, so you can take a look around to see if there's anything else you need! Link: https://geosims.wixsite.com/geosims...uinas-de-dulces

Here's a smaller and neater alternative to the big and weird default cupcake machine. Having a cupcake machine was a very cute idea, but why it had to be so big and hideous is a mystery. My alternative is more pleasant-looking, has a 4-tile footprint as opposed to the default 9-tile object, a much lower poly count, and uses all the same animations as the original object. It's found in the Small Appliances section in Buy Mode and costs 1000 simoleons.

It comes in 10 colours, a mixture of cheerful bright funky colours and neutral ones. Top row from left to right: 1) 'Rust' for your slobby sims, 2) Green, 3) Turquoise, 4) Light Grey, and 5) Caramel. Bottom row from left to right: 6) Sunny Yellow, 7) Light Steel Blue, 8) Red, 9) Lilac, and 10) Dark Slate Grey.



The new machine will fit more easily in kitchens, and go better with most decors, than the default one.



Your simmies will be happier without that big default eyesore!



If you want more than one, they take up much less space than the default ones and fit neatly together:



Minor animation issues: When sims do the 'Refill' action they will be emptying the flour bag into thin air due to the removal of the big funnel thing. The 'Clean' action will also be a little off because of my having changed the shape of the front of the item and removed the funnel.

NOTE for those who have necrodog's cupcake maker: Necrodog and I were working on our smaller cupcake makers at the same time and comparing notes. If you also have necrodog's little oven, you will know that it's a default replacement and replaces the default cupcake machine's animations with custom ones. You CAN have both of our machines in your game at the same time, though. They will both work and be useable - the only difference is that necro's customs animations will override my machine's animations. As a result, the sim will stand there waiting for the cupcakes to cook while the levers and control wheel operate themselves. When done, the plate of cupcakes will still come down the conveyor belt as per the default animation.

Thanks for looking, hope you'll find this useful for your cupcake-loving simmies.


INSTALLATION:
Unzip the zip file and move the .package file to your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\Mods folder.

A HUGE THANK YOU to andrew from the S4S team for his advice on this item's geostates and all his help and assistance.

Thank you to necrodog and plasticbox for advice on getting rid of this item's unwanted FX.

Thanks to EA for the original mesh, which I hacked to bits in Blender.

Oh yes! Now I can replace that ridiculous thing with a smaller one. I think sims should be able to just make cupcakes in the oven, but you know how EA likes weird, complicated machinery in Sims 4. Next they're gonna replace easels with 10-tile printing press. ;P

I love the cupcake machine in the sims 4,the other EA machine in too large and bulky.But can you possibly but it in a different color that would match the kitchen counters better?

Hi, I made a new set of colours for this item which include a range of more neutral-looking shades, but when I tried to upload it this morning, I found that the site is not accepting new zip uploads since yesterday's server maintenance. New screenshots of the new colours are in the row of thumbnail pics, but the zip won't upload. Once that's fixed, I'll be able to upload the revised file.

ETA: New version now uploaded, finally!

@SimmerxAnime1994 @jacciinatl @zaleth and anyone else who would like neutral colours and/or more colour choices: New version now uploaded with some neutral colours as well as a couple more bright colours, plus a fix to a flaw on the original texture that I hadn't noticed before.

Thank you so much for the additional colors.. I'd decided not to share the lot since keeping up with cc on ts4 is just a bit complicated.

Thanks to those who came back for the additional colours! I was really glad to be able to add more without it being a hassle as adding more colours than the default number used to be, hopefully you'll find this a more versatile item now.

I just tested downloading it and it downloads fine for me. Can only suggest trying again, maybe the website was having a glitch at the time!
