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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
** OFB & SEASONS VERSIONS AVAILABLE **

I have alternate versions of this refrigerator that work with OFB and Seasons available on TSR.
For all you pay site haters... I made them a free download. So don't say I never give you anything...

OFB Version: http://www.thesimsresource.com/down...objects/605644/

Seasons Version: http://www.thesimsresource.com/down...objects/605645/

** END OF UPDATE **




Well here is my Retro Fridge.... this thing was a pain in the behind.
Mostly due to my not knowing what the heck I was doing... LOL!
(So please, no complaints about it being EP only. I know, it sucks.
But I don't know what I'm doing enough as it is, let alone the fancy
footwork needed to make things Base-game compatible. Someday.)

The "opening" animation is a bit off, because all the Maxis Fridges
have 2 doors. But hey at least it opens!

Cloned from the Economy Fridge... but as I mentioned you will
need at least one Expansion Pack installed for this to show in your game.
Black is the "Mesh", the others are the recolors.

Polys - 658
Vertices - 687
Style: Retro
Room: Kitchen
Maxis Flags: Not Applicable

"EP" = Expansion Pack. So you will need University and/or Nightlife
installed along with the Sims Original game for this to work.

I have all the Expansions, which alter some of the objects to
have additional functions on top of the Base game functions.
So when I clone an object, the "upgrades" come with it.

There is a way around this, but I haven't had time to figure
it all out. Its not like a simple "switch" that can be turned on
and off on my computer.

Fabu U Lous! But the salesman told me that it might be available in turquoise as well? Now we've got a place to keep all that fabulous Jell-O for our Cocktail Party.

I'm afraid your salesman was incorrect.... but there is a "Robin's Egg Blue".
