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.
A diagonal version of the Maxis “Heat Seeker” fireplace, plus a mesh override for the regular one that adds a ledge around the bottom and makes it a little less clunky.

The diagonal fireplace fits exactly into a corner by default, no moveobjects needed (note however that when you put stuff on top, said stuff may not want to clip into walls, so for that you might need to turn moveobjects on anyway). Stats and slots and so on are referenced from the straight version, as well as the textures.

Polygon Counts:

Diagonal, High Poly: 240V/202F
Diagonal, Low Poly: 193V/140F
Diagonal, Sun Shadow: 36V/60F

Straight, High Poly: 223V/187F
Straight, Low Poly: 179V/126F
Straight, Sun Shadow: 36V/56F

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 just tried this in one of my smaller living rooms but it did not fit into the corner. It was a huge gap between the fire place and the wall.

I don't know why that is though because I have downloaded it before without any problems.

When the gap is "huge", are you sure you are actually placing it next to the wall? Is there something behind the wall that is in the way, maybe? The file has not changed since it was uploaded first, in any case.

I see this, too. When the room is on a foundation, it will only place a half-tile out from the corner. No foundation works perfectly, but if you raise it after, the fireplace disappears. If you try to place it with the foundation already there, a tooltip tells you, "Must be placed on terrain or the floor." It behaves fine with moveobjects on, however.

This was a priceless addition to my game years ago. I'm so glad it's still here and works! Definitely one of those "can't live without" pieces!
