-March 8/07 - The vending machine SHOULD no longer replace my drink vending machine. I think the GUIDs were the problem. But if it still does, then I don't think there's anything I can do. I will test it later. This new version is called "VM 07" when you download it. If you download both vending machines, DO NOT download the one here that has over 20 000 downloads.

- October/6/06 - Added a new food dedicated and requested to/by DiscordKitty! Now your Child - Elder sims can purchase a bag of cookies!

I am deleting the old files and adding a new one. So the downloads number will drop back down to 0. If you downloaded the version without the cookies, then just download the vending machine that replaces the old one an download the Cookies Accessory (all files included in .zip)
So now there are 5 files to extract!!
Wow...well....where do I start? There was a hell of a lot of work put into this, guys. Seriously. Not only is it Version 2 of my original (ly crappy) vending machine, but it is also a new object! What I mean is, I fixed everything I said I was....and I also added new features! I dont know how I did it, folks....been working on this for so many days and the coding was breaking my back Anyway, lets skip my pain and get with the download.


There are a lot of new features in this vending machine. Here goes:

- Sims can now choose 3 foods from the vender (Chips, coke, and Energy Drink)

- Sim now eats the food DIRECTLY from the vending machine. In version 1 the sim placed it on a surface and you had to tell him/her to drink/eat it.

- Sim now burps after eating

- Sim now places hand directly in compartment instead of...well....not in the compartment

- Has a totally new look! (which suits the chips)

- Energy Drink raises energy+hunger of sim!

- No more doorbell sound; Sim now uses right hand instead of left.

- This object was cloned from my vending machine, which was originally cloned from her cauldron because I couldnt get the Pie Menu strings and functions to show for the end table
Numenor, Smonaff, Atavera - They all helped in the custom animating and Numenor and Smonaff in finding some burping animations *cant resist giggle*

And a special round of applause for my very good pal Smonaff. Who has helped me with BHAV editing ever since I started I wouldnt be where I am without you, Smo!

Age Groups

Child sims CANNOT buy an Energy Drink. I thought this would make it more realistic. They can still by pop and chips

Child - Elder can use this vending machine. Making it work for the Child sims was like making the machine all over again....

EP Compatibility
*In testing* Please test this and tell me what glitches you get, etc. 2 known glithes so far:

1. Sometimes a sim anatamously (is that how you spell/say it?) grabs the food from the corner of the machine and will intersect some parts...

2. When a sim places a big of chips on the ground so that you can dispose of them, half of the chips sink into the ground. Dont worry, they are still *clickable*

Total of 4 files included in .zip. MUST EXTRACT ALL!!!

Find this under Electronics/Miscellaneous for 1250 simo's
This project contains custom animations
Not custom as in something you've never seen before, but Numenor led me to create the doorbell animation without the doorbell sound. Well, I figured out most of it myself but he put me on square 1

The new animation consists of 2 files!!!

1: a2o-door-pushbuttonbyptp_anim
2: c2o-door-pushbuttonbyptp_anim

According to Numenor, these files are included within the vending machine and DO NOT replace the doorbell animations in-game.

Poly counts
Vending Machine: 128 Poly's
Bag Of Chips: 1312 poly's (used from Maxis bag of chips with Doritos textures)
Energy Drink and Coke: 526 Poly's

Bag Of Chips - 5 simoleons
Coke - 5 simoleons
Energy Drink - 25 simoleons (almost maxes out Energy of sim and raises hunger like the others)
Energy Drink effecting needs:
