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.


Don’t you just hate it when you’ve set up a nice row of counters in your kitchen and then the backside of a dishwasher or trash compactor ruins the pretty veneer or plaster?

Well, I do. And to avoid that happening in aTorrox-equipped kitchen I made a set of appliances that match the backside of the Torrox counters.

Oh, and then I got carried away and made a few more appliances to go with them:


The set contains fridge, stove, dishwasher, trash compactor, microvave oven, toaster oven and food processor.

All the appliances are basegame, but the fridge also has Seasons options, just like the dishwasher and trash compactor has Freetime options.

IMPORTANT!
The stove, dishwasher and trash compactor are slaved to the Torrox Counter 1/2 which you can find in THIS THREAD – so you must have that counter your game to make these work.

When you download the master Torrox Buy Collection objects, you also get the following recolors of stove, dishwasher and trash compactor:

Plaster


Wood


All the appliances are included in the collection file that you can find in the thread with the master objects.

Catalogue placement:
In the appropriate categories at the following prices:
Fridge – 1263
Stove – 863
Large appliances – 563
Small appliances – 236


Polygon Counts:
Fridge – 702
Stove – 588
Dishwasher – 1099
Trash compactor – 1304
Microwave – 464
Toaster oven – 760
Food processor – 1357

Thanks for this collection of appliances ! I love your Torrox set of counters : I've just played a house where I used them and they look great. I'll have to replace the appliances with those ones to have everything matching together.

Do you plan to share more colors for this set ? I would love to have more !

This made me realize how great your torrox set is. I can't wait to use them in game! I am particularly fond of the stone recolors. Great job, and really nice that you thought to recolor appliances as well

The Torrox set is really lovely. I am having a problem with the trash compactor, though, as I don´t have Freetime. My Sims try to tinker with it, which causes a jump bug. Any chance this could be fixed?

Hi Rebellina,

Thanks. I'll look into it, but I can't promise anything. Especially since I'm not sure what you mean by jump bug.

Happy simming

So sorry for the late reply, I don´t check the forum posts that often!

Jump Bug means Sims suddenly interrupt what they are doing, stop any actions they have queued. It is basically an error in the game.

Jase explains it here.

You added functions from Freetime to the dishwasher and the trash compactor, so they can tinker with it. As I don´t have Freetime, my sims can´t tinker, and the game throws an error, the "Jump Bug". If there is any chance you could make the appliances truly basegame, without the Freetime "Tinker option", I would be very glad!
