Ailias thank you soo much! :DWill be needed! I hate the original one! One question stills: Could you possibly fix a bar that could work like this one?

Excellent! Thanks so much!

I have a question, if you would be so kind.

I have made a new texture map for the coffee maker itself- a nice (or so I think) copper, stainless and wood texture, with wood boxes. However, the coffee maker map itself doesn't show when I try to do a recolor of the item- just the cabinet maps.

I got a base 'coffee machine' map (which I used to build a new template and new texture from) from Retail Sims' Christmas coffee maker. However, the same problem occurs when I go through the regular recolor process for that one- no 'coffee machine' map is available, just counter maps. If I simply clone that file and sub in my texture, that doesn't seem to work, either, and no coffee machine texture seems to be accessible in your item when opened as opposed to 'recolor' processed.

Any ideas on how I can use my new texture? I'd love to post it on the site as a recolor.

I don't know why Maxis didn't make more options for the espresso stand (like with the bar)? Thank you, for a job well done, and doing what maxis didn't.

Hey, thanks a million! I have already tried to use the ugly Maxis one moved on top of a nice counter with the Moveobjects on cheat, but that didn't work. Sims were lining up for coffee and couldn't get it... and became very pissed! I hope this will work! I needed it so much! I love creating custom community lots and this is exactly what I needed!

Thank you, I love this! Like a few other people, I did originally have problems where sims couldn't use the bar because counters were in the way, but that was easily solved using the walk-through blocks here: https://modthesims.info/download.php?t=320185
