Do your meals lack that certain something? Do you ever look down at the table and think: "By golly, I'm sick of eating off clean plates! I want to eat off corrugated metal plates that have been god only knows where and I want to eat off that kind of plate RIGHT NOW." If so, this rusty plate will make all your dream come true! If not, well... Try not to lick the plate.


When I first realized the challenge theme was apocalypse, I think I almost died of happiness! I am a huuuuuge grunge fan who's CC folder is full of things that look like they've been outside too long during acid rainstorms. *snuggles downloads folder happily* So here is my contribution to that wonderful list of apocalypse items!

These defaults are base game compatible. (Don't worry, I've tested it!) I also plan on making clutter grungy objects for this that aren't defaults and have already started work on that, if anyone is interested. (Thank you to Q for the idea!) I am also working on way to make the silverware less shiny. In the meantime, everything still looks suitably grungy and there should be no problems. If there are, poke me! Also, apologies for not including an in-game picture of the dirty version, but my sims are neat freaks and wouldn't cooperate. :P

I don't think there's anything left to say, except: HAPPY BIRTHDAY MTS2!
