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.

Yes. It's unlikely to ever stop working, unless EA issues a patch in which all cupcake machines stop working for some reason.

I just tried the download link and it works fine. Maybe the site was having some sort of glitch when you tried it - please try again.

Very nice. I really appreciate the smaller, more realistic size, although the one that came with the game is...cute.

This machine, with its conveyor belt, reminds me of "I Love Lucy." As I recall, she and Ethel took a job where they had to box cakes from a conveyor belt. It started moving faster and faster, until cakes were flying everywhere! Someone who does stories might be able to use this that way.

Sorry, I don't speak Portuguese but according to Google Translate, you seem to be saying it doesn't work? I just tried it in my game and it still works perfectly. If it's not working for you, maybe you have a mod conflict?

Desculpe, não falo português, mas de acordo com o Google Translate, você parece estar dizendo que não funciona? Acabei de experimentar no meu jogo e ainda funciona perfeitamente. Se não estiver funcionando para você, talvez você tenha um conflito de mod?

ETA: There is one thing I've noticed: Sometimes when a sim goes to autonomously use the machine, they will go ahead and use it, but sometimes they just stand there. If that happens, tell them to use it, and they will. I don't know why that would happen, or if it happens with the default cupcake machine now too, because I never use the default one. In any case, if they go up to it and don't use it, just tell them to and it will work fine.

Sorry to barge in like that, but I'm Brazilian and I've noticed Google Translate doesn't work quite well with Brazilian Portuguese, so I thought I could help you out with what OP said. They said they are grateful for your work, especially because it has never stopped working [contrary to others they've previously downloaded]
