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.
Description
I have another functional water cooler for you all today.
This version is based on the High-tech Water Cooler found at the Spa Venue in The Sims Mobile. I really liked the design and so I set out to recreate it for TS4. This object has been recreated completely from scratch based on screenshots I took on my phone.



Info
The High-tech Water Cooler can be found under the Kitchen Appliances sort for a cost of 245 simoleons.
It is tagged to show up in the Lot specific catalogue sections for Spas, Gyms, the Science Lab and the Hospital if you use cheats to build there.
It comes in the six original Mobile swatches as well as two additional colours, yellow and pink, which I have added.
This cooler, unlike my previous one , is unbreakable.
Celeb Sims with the relevant perk are able to donate the cooler.

Notes
The cooler uses its own unique tuning so shouldn't conflict with any other objects or mods.
The desire to grab a drink from the cooler is the same as grabbing a drink from a sink as I haven't altered that.
The actual water pouring animation is missing. The sound plays but there is no visual water stream. I haven't figured out how to fix this nor has anybody I have asked about it. If a fix is found I will update it.

Thank you very much for saying so. I would have released it sooner but I was so determined to get the water stream effect working. I had to give up in the end though. The method I used to move the Sim further away from the cooler so that they wouldn't clip inside seemingly broke the IK targets and the water effect in the process.

i like it, but why dont u take it to a nother lvl? i mean, its a bit stylish and futuristic looking, why not add other functions instead of just serving water? sims 4 this kinda brings some memories from the sims 3 future EP, so i think it would be cool if u added the function to get more drinks, maybe even mixiology drinks and obviously up the cooler price on build mode. its just an opinion, cool mod tho.

I did play Mobile up until a few months ago. It finally got too repetitive for me though and I uninstalled it.

I didn't. I remade it completely by looking at screenshots. This model and textures were all made by me.

Awesome! Great to see that you finally finished the project. Water not visible doesn't bother me. Tanks for sharing.
