With permission from Fanseelamb I have made her tasty tins of beverage available for the Apartment Life Vending Machine! I didn't include the alcoholic drinks, because I think children can use the vending machine, also when was the last time that you saw alcohol in a vending machine, lol.

You can find the original Tasty Tins of Beverage for the fridge Here and Here these are NOT required to use this.

These are all non-default drinks, so they won't replace anything, and you can use them all together.

Some of the textures were made by fireflies, and some were made by fanseelamb. Huge Credit to fanseelamb and fireflies . Thanks so much ladies!

Here's what's included:

A&W Root Beer
Canada Dry Club Soda
Coca Cola
Diet Coke
Dr. Pepper
Ginger Ale
Lipton Iced Tea
Mountain Dew
Mountain Dew Livewire
Mug Root Beer
Crush Orange Soda
Welch's Grape Soda
Welch's Strawberry Soda
Yoo Hoo Chocolate Drink


Pie Menus:

Additional Credits:
Fanseelamb and fireflies for the textures

I'm currently making some in Simlish. They're looking pretty good, so I'll ask fanseelamb's permission.

be sure that you fix the self-referencing GUIDs in the BHAVs! That's very important for making food work properly.

Lol, yes that is a bit steep isn't it? Maxis/EA wanted to make it that price, and unfortunately, I do not know how to edit the prices of food. But as you know, sims is a whole nother world! Some rumors have even circulated that The Sims is set in the future. So maybe in the future we will speak gibberish, and pay 5 bucks (or simoleons or whatever) for soda in a machine.

I downloaded it and now my vending machines don't work. Good thought, though.

Some people spend their time doing useful things that can help them with their future. I spend my time playing with virtual people. Is there a problem with that?
