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

I really like the diagonal fireplace. I can see using that a lot. The override is really nice as well but I prefer not to use overrides so I guess that one won't be going in my game. (I have a hard time keeping track of what overrides are in my folder and end up with conflicts. *sigh*)

Yes, trying to use regular fireplaces in corners is rather annoying, that's why I made this. (It does work if you put down the fireplace first and then build the walls, or with a 1-tile diagonal wall in the corner .. but both of those solutions leave a triangular gap in the corner that I'm not too keen on).

This will be so convenient. So many of my houses lack fire places because there is no room to place them. Thank you.
