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.
Here's one more collection of Fridge Stockable Foods... since there seems to be some interest in them and I figured why hoard them for my own game.

This will probably be my last upload for awhile (as I sort of feel like just playing for a bit), and I tend to upload things for a bit and then fall off for a few months before sharing something else anyhow.


Details:
- Everything can be purchased directly from buy mode and used to stock refrigerators.
- All items are considered "harvestable" and will add "Fresh Food Points" to a refrigerator once stocked. So, the Seasons EP is required for these items to work as intended.
- All files are clearly labeled for easy selection (in case you do not want all items). The in-game descriptions of the items have been made detailed as well to clearly state the original creators, as well as how many "Food Points" each food object is worth.
- As these were all once just deco, I have removed any preexisting room scores they may have had, changed the pricing and re-categorized all of the files to the Appliances>Miscellaneous category as well.
- Much like the game harvestables (vegetables, fruit, fish) these will NOT spoil when left out. So, you can still use them as deco items if you want.
- As with the Maxis harvested items, these items will NOT be sellable if you place them on an UNOWNED business lot, but can be sold and restocked without issue on OWNED business lots.
- With the exception of a few items, everything has extra recolors that are not shown. I've also included recolors that I made for my own game (some of which are shown above).
- ALL GUIDs ARE THE SAME - IT IS IMPORTANT TO REMOVE THE ORIGINAL FILES PRIOR TO ADDING MY EDITED ONES. I've included a file that list the original files names in their original format.
- There are images and very detailed information included in the download, as well as collection files.

Much thanks to the creators of these meshes!

Hope you enjoy!

I will be checking out the other fridge stockable items you mentioned; I am so excited for these! My sims running their own cafes/delis were getting a little bored selling the same product their customers can make at home!

I love this so so much!
Thank you so much for making these!
I can't wait till you make some more, but as a creator I really understand you want to play and need time to update things.
So I can be patient
Enjoy playing!

These are so good! My hood really needs someone to open up a bakery ASAP to sell the lovely breads and cakes. I love that you've put together such a variety - there's foods that suit my historical hood as well as some very good modern ones.

@sweetbaby160 - I hope you enjoy using this collection (and do get a chance to check out my other set here and the one at GoS). I totally agree with you on it being nice to have other (functional) things to for sims to sell in their cafes and shops.


@lientebollemeis - I'm so happy you're happy about this set! And, yeah, I know you're probably very aware of what's it like to just need a little downtime from projects and maybe just enjoy playing the game for a bit. Sometimes I start out doing what I think will be quick mini projects for my game, and they instead turn into something bigger that takes up all of my available simming time, and then it's like 'Wait, I'm actually in the mood to just play the game for once. Time to take a break from projects.'


@Pebblerocker - Glad you like these - variety is definitely something that is very necessary when playing a game that has been around for over 15+yrs. Have fun choosing someone to run a bakery in your hood!

@littlesexii You're welcome, and it will probably be awhile before I share more stockable foods. There are lots more that I've already done for my own game, but the creators TOU does not allow for sharing modifications of their meshes. So, I've been very selective with what I've shared thus far.

And... right now I'm sort of on a break from sharing things at all, and plan on spending some time playing the game for a bit and doing other non-Sim related hobbies as well.

Thank you so much for your work! I was kind of disappointed that all the breads and stuff from Veranka's conversion of the bakery were only deco items. This will be so much more fun.

@PenelopeT - Thank you so much for these! They look GREAT!

I wanted to ask whether these work like the ones Exnem did, where sims can also just eat them straight from the catalogue? Thank you so much!

@terula8

Glad you like these! And someone else had that same question too on the other harvestables I shared before these, so I just copy and pasted my answer to them below.


These are not like Exnem's buyable foods... which are basically prepared meals that you can buy/serve/eat instead of cook. These are considered "harvestables" like the garden crops and fish in-game (which you cannot eat as is... unmodded). Therefore, these are more like groceries and can only be purchased (directly via buy mode or from a sim owned business) and used to "stock" the refrigerator and add "Fresh Food Points" in the same way the game harvestables do.

Ahh - got it! Thank you PenelopeT! This adds some very interesting gameplay options for those grocery stores for sure - I'll be downloading!

Hi, I'm trying to use these, but they keep wanting to be on top of each other, they don't want to be spread out at an appropriate distance the way they are in your pictures. How can I fix this?

@kestrellyn

Sorry I've not logged-in to MTS since early December. Not sure if you are still having the issue you mentioned, but I've never had issues placing the items as shown and no one else has mentioned having this problem either.

Will say that items can be placed as shown by pressing the "M" key to shift between slots (until the desired location is set) when placing items on surfaces. Also, if you are trying to place items while the "moveobjects" cheat is enabled, that might cause the issue you described too.
