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.
Roman Valoppi @ Livejournal converted the TS3 Store's Gothique set- in it was an awesome fireplace. His version was deco and with his permission I have made it functional. While I was at it, I also made some recolors that should fit into just about any decorating scheme. I also added 2 more slots to the mantle, so it now has 5 slots. Before I forget, there are 2 subsets- the fireplace itself and the mantle/base. Both share the same texture but are still fully mix-n-match. (The logs are not recolorable!) *Removed link to Roman's LJ as he deleted it- so his conversion of the set is no longer available that way.*



Credit goes to EA for the original mesh and Roman for the conversion. Since I did some work on it, I did give it new GUIDs. So if you want to have both versions in your game you can. It can be found in Appliances>Misc. Since there is no chimney, all you have to do is place the files in your downloads folder.

If you would like to recolor, please do! There is a .psd that will make it a lot easier- just ask.

Sims99Fanatic- I agree and wish I could do them myself. Which brings me to..
Artimis- I linked to the set that was converted but here's Another Link
makabear- lol, thank you and you're welcome.

To the mod: Being able to mix and match the interiors with the whole fireplace would've been interesting. You should've said so, lol. Now I'll keep wondering what that would look like. (I happen to be kind of proud of the interiors textures )

Thank you for this! Seeing not just beautiful uploads, but S3 conversions, like this one makes me happy since it only goes to show that the S2 community is still very much alive. T/U

Ooh these are lovely MLC! I love that you've made retextures which are suitable for different decorating themes. The curved shape is just dying out for an art nouveau recolour, so would it be possible to have the .psd you mentioned in the main post? ^^
