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.

Polygon Counts:

Additional Credits:

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.

Hi Esmeralda. I love the new smaller and more colors of this machine! But I have one problem, whenever one of my sims goes to use the machine and I don't want them to, I can't cancel their action.

Hi, sorry, I don't know what to suggest - this item is not 'modded' in any way, it's just the default machine with a new mesh and new textures, so it behaves exactly the same as the default one. You might have an outdated mod or something like that, or a corrupted save?

ETA: I was curious about this and fired my game up and tried to cancel the action while sims were using both my cupcake machine and the EA default one that comes with the game, and I couldn't cancel either of them. So, being unable to cancel the action is apparently normal default game behaviour. I guess once a sim is determined to make cupcakes, he/she can't be stopped!

Well then... okay. LOL wonder why I never noticed with the EA version. Thanks for checking that out for me. Never thought to cross check them.

TY for the smaller version and colors. Funny story, first time I went to use it, I thought it was the wrong machine because it looked like it belonged in a hospital, not something that made cute cupcakes...lol

How did you get one of the sims to look like a skeleton? If it is a mod, where do you get it?

Wonderful! Thank you for making a smaller version so that ordinary Sims could afford to put one in their kitchen. :)
