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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
So you wanna keep your simmies warm through this cold winter season?, well here is just the thing for you


These fireplaces have all the same functionas as a normal fireplace such as:

These fireplaces DON'T need the scritpnioum SO JUST DUMP EM' IN YOUR DOWNLOADS FOLDER , and you ready to play

I tried to keep the polys as low as possible so every one can play with these fireplaces.

I tried to add a bit of everthing with these fireplaces, style, a feel of tranquilty, moderness (if thats a word) and of course the winter season feeling.

They don't need any EP's so any one can download.They are found under the APPLIANCES section.

The Auckland Hugh Cozy fireplace

It has 2 additional recolours but feel free to recolour.
Everything on the fireplace is recolourable.

The Auckland Hugh Modern Fireplace

It has 1 additional recolour.
Everything recolourable.

The Auckland Hugh Contemporary Modern Fireplace

1 Additional recolour.

Alrighty then, if you like my fireplaces then all your comments ar welcome and please thank.

Kind Regards

Oh wow. I've been looking for an open fireplace ever since seeing one on CSI but I couldn't find any. The Buckland Hugh fireplace is almost exactly what I wanted, thank you so much! I can't wait to try these out in game, cos you can never have enough fireplaces!

Nice Work!
One question though, When installed they have no chimney's, is that buy design or are they just not showing up for me?

I also live in Auckland and was curious to know why this name was chosen. My fireplace is made of "klinker brick." If you could make one like that, I'd be even more impressed, but these are terrific, and thanks.
