Artifix Im sure that my recolor can NOT influence the game behavior.
Look for some inproper hack.
May be they are just dont feel like to buy coffee or you might place my recolor on some blocking surface...

Stupid question, but do you have a Barista working the coffee station, Artifix?

On the subject of the Espresso Station...I love it! Thanks a lot!

Cool! Could you possibly do something similar for a bar?
#16 Old 21st Jun 2006 at 1:24 AM
Great idea... will have to bookmark it and come back later. Not sure what the problem is but I can't download anything from MTS2 this morning, keep 'server is not responding'.

Thanks for such a handy idea and mod.

If I place it over a counter with "moveobjects on", I have the same problem. I haven't experimented much with it, but it might depend on whether the counter or the bar is placed first.
Still, the invisible bottom part is great.

Very nice. Kudos!
Any chance you could make a version that gives a bigger energy boost?
Or if it's a simple edit of the .package file, a quick how-to would be smashing. Anyone?

This is awesome! I actually never used the espresso bar much before because 1) the color options sucked and 2) they seemed to clash instead of decently matching anything!

Thanks, man! All your stuff is awesome! You made my day! :D
#24 Old 9th Dec 2006 at 7:52 AM
This is a much needed addition (the counter EA chose to use is just disgusting)

Thank you for making a version of the espresso maker that I will use! :D
