The Mission counter/cabinet set in Sims 3 is attractive and functional, but I rarely used it, because the stained glass inserts never matched my color schemes. This upload fixes all that, by removing the glass insets from the counters, counter islands, cabinets, and cabinet islands; you see only fully recolorable wooden cabinet doors.

The Plain Mission items are not default replacements; they're available as new catalog items, slightly cheaper than the fancy glass-fronted ones in the game. You can mix and match both styles in your kitchen.

Two caveats for this item:

1) The package files are large. That's partly because every counter and cabinet is actually two or three items, including corner versions and appliance versions. It was also necessary to bring in extra resources to the clone, to remove all four glass designs and to maintain the links between the various forms of counter. Attempts to remove various resources resulted in bad things happening when linking counters, so I've just gone with the full clone.

2) The corner versions of the two-sided "island" overhead cabinets have a sporadic texture mapping problem. I discovered this while testing, but unfortunately it's also a feature of the original mission overhead cabinets, and fixing it is beyond the scope of this mod.
