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.
This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Tinkle at Black Pearl Sims made a decorative fireplace that I really like. I somehow got it into my head that a functional version might be wanted, so with her permission..here's the functional version of that fireplace.



There are 9 recolors included - five of those are Kim's original recolors for Tinkle's version, 2 are Maxis textures (as is the default red brick) and the other 2 random ones I picked out.

If you have Tinkle's version, both can be used in game at the same time. Since I remapped her mesh, added the logs and ten slots, I didn't reuse her GUID's. My version can be found in Appliances>Misc for 499 simoleons.

I've played with this fireplace for the last 3 weeks. The only issue is the animations (see attached pics)- they are off just a tad when lighting/poking. I tried to minimize the clipping as much as I could. The warm self animation is fine, and I have to say it's awfully cute when a sim is warming his/her behind.

Recolors are more than welcome, hope your sims enjoy their new fireplace! (Mine used to laugh at it, but he got over it eventually and seems to appreciate it, lol.)

A huge thanks to Huge Lunatic for fixing a light issue for me.

MLC, you know you've made it when someone tells you that. Parents, boyfriends, and best friends have all told me at one point or another that what I'm doing isn't important, silly sims stuff, or should at least *try* to do it professional. Hold strong, and congrats.

I was the one who originally asked for someone to make this fireplace, Tinkle at BPS very kindly took up the challenge and came up with an awesome deco version and in turn, inspired Maria to create a working version. I am very grateful to you both and so pleased this has been given featured status!
Thank you

Do you mean it's not there at all? Or it's there but won't light up or anything? You shouldn't need any EPs for this fireplace. It's under Appliance>Misc. It shouldn't replace any other objects you have since it's got GUIDs from my block of them.
