Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
01/06/2021: THE SIMS 4 DREAM HOME DECORATOR BROKE CC STOVES WITH CUSTOM TUNING. THE STOVE IN THIS PACK WAS UPDATED, PLEASE REDOWNLOAD;

 H&B Goes Green:
Welcome to your new Eco Kitchen! Explore the new H&B Green collection and decorate your kitchen with 45 new amazing pieces of furnishing. The choices are endless! The neutral color palette of the pack blends in with any other asset in the game for an easy mix and match.

 Gameplay Effects:
This pack is completely base game compatible, but it is also compatible with Eco Lifestyle! The new H&B EcoPortal fridge will boost your neighborhood's green eco-footprint and most other appliances have reduced power consumption. Of course, they're also fully upgraded, this is a total flagship lineup!

 100% original work, no EA meshes or textures recycled:
This collection of objects was created using exclusively original work made by me in either Blender or Photoshop, without re-using existing EA textures. All objects have a diffuse, specular and normal map guaranteed. Some objects have an emissive map. The style of both meshes and textures is maxis match.

 Easy to fetch in-game:
To show all the objects in-game, simply type LITTLEDICA or ECO KITCHEN in your game search box!

 Stackable Objects:
Some objects in this Stuff Pack contain slots that allow for stacking and decor, they're all shown in the preview pictures.

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'm really liking this kitchen set <3
I have a small request, though. Would it be possible to make the fridges and the oven to be used with custom recipese and the fridges to be used with littlemsam's transfer inventory mod ?

Hey, thanks for an amazing pack! I used this fine until the most recent update - now my sims won't wash any dishes in the sink or put them in the dishwasher. Not sure what changed.

This was happening to me too but it has nothing to do with this mod. You have some content in your mods folder that is out of date after that last update.

Yeah, I'm not so sure about that. I've removed all the mods *except* for this one, and my sims *still* won't use the sink or the dishwasher - the "Load Dishwasher" interaction simply sends them to the nearest sink that's not in this pack (in my sims' case, the bathroom). Little frustrating to be honest.

EDIT: I started a new save with *only* this mod in it and no others and deleted the sink in the bathroom so any dishes wouldn't be washed in there. I had the new sim eat a meal and then tried to get them to wash it in the dishwasher - the "Load Dishwasher" interaction is greyed out and I only have the option to throw the dish away in the trash. They simply will not use the sink or the dishwasher as intended. This is very frustrating.

I have an issue with the interactive screen that is supposed to be on the fridge. I have moveobjects on but it doesn't show up on the fridge for whatever reason.

This is such an awesome set! I especially like the fridge overlays and the H&B EcoBin trash can. I also like the fact the stove has slots, so that we can put a deco pan or pot in it.

I don't know what would be causing that. Sims are loading the dishwasher normally for me. Did you try to delete your "localthumbcache.package" file? Did you try to create a new game, and try it in a household on that new save? Sometimes there can be persistent issues on a save file.

Really nice stuff pack! Also, I am having trouble with the timber shelves. The pictures show a single shelf that can be placed above the fridge and the EcoPurify but I can't find it. Is it on a separate file or is there something that need to be done with the double shelves that I'm not aware of? I started playing Sims 4 only recently

Default Mod Issues
I love that everything here is upgraded. However, TwistedMexi's Better Exceptions Mod came up with several exceptions for the kitchen. I couldn't get a report (I can try again sometime if it helps) because my computer crashed. And the one I had saved to the desktop disappeared. (sigh - such is life). I hate that I have to remove your kitchen until you have a chance to update it. Thank you for your eco items. I need as many as I can get!

Was it a Patch Day report about Necrodog recipes as mentioned before? I've also started seeing that a while back, actually:

I'm not sure if this is actually game-breaking or not, though, since I don't have any of his recipes.

EDIT: Oh crud, this is for the Eco Kitchen that I haven't gotten yet. I thought it was Modern Kitchen Stuff. Maybe I should test...?

EDIT #2: Okay, I didn't get any LE's with this so far, and the BE Patch Scanner said nothing about it. (More testing is needed, though.)

Something's definitely off about the dishwasher, though, since it goes unused. (It didn't break my other dishwashers nor any sinks in my current test save, though. I should mention I use Don't Wash Dishes Where You Angry Poop [LeRoiDeTout's current version], in case that makes a difference.) (I also didn't test the smart screen, because I'm unsure if it's safe or not.)

Otherwise, very nice set as always, @littledica!

EDIT #3: I think I figured out the dishwasher problem. It's caused by having an upper cabinet that is too low, which also blocks EA and other CC dishwashers, as well as sinks. (When I changed the upper cabinet in this pack to the one picture in the shot I added, the dishwasher works just fine.) I'll do more testing.

Thank you for the update. Are you on Patreon? Or Ko-Fi?

Also, since this set is compatible with the ecoliving pack, I was wondering if the walls and floors have a green ... not sure what it's called but basically have a +2 Green for example?

I actually have the same issue on my Mac with the appliances from this pack, I don't play on laptop mode and I've played around with reflections, object detail, etc. in my graphics settings.

When zooming in and out, or when panning the camera around, I've noticed that these stripes make up some sort of room. Panning the camera around makes you see the different "walls" of that "room". Zooming in and out actually makes the stripes on the objects larger when zooming out and smaller when zooming in as if it were attached to the camera.

Does anyone know if it's a Mac incompatibility or if it's coming from the object texture/reflection "behaviour" perhaps?
I really don't know enough about modding/meshing/texturing/etc. yet to give you the right nouns or a theory of what could cause this yet unfortunately.

I had the same issue and I found out how to solve the problem to get rid off these reflections, you need the Program S4S ( Sims4Studio) and you make some easy Texture editing...

1. Step install the S4S and open the program:
2. Go to File an Open the package file with the reflections Problem. (for example Littledica.H&B.ecoPortal.package)
3. Now you click on Texture and you will see 4 Tiny PNGs.... You see 2 PNGs That is Black and White and a other that a is green and White...You replace this with a Black PNG (2048x2048). You click on the PNG that you want replace with the pure Black Square and then click on import. Now search fore the Black Square and finally click on Save..
