This has been on my to-do-list for ages. I can’t say I’m 100% happy with the result, but for now I’m okay with how it looks. Otherwise I would poke at this for all eternity (; ಠㅂಠ)b

This is an edit of HugeLunatic‘s CEP-extra (I fell in love with that bowl!) which means this should be placed in your Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\zCEP-EXTRA folder. You still have to download HugeLunatic’s HL_CEP_bg_fruitBowl-programfiles.package file though from the link above.

  • Edit: sorry if I was a bit unclear! In other words: my file (vegankaktus_HL_CEP_bg_fruitBowl.package) should replace HugeLunatic’s original file (HL_CEP_bg_fruitBowl.package) in the document’s CEP-extra folder. HL_CEP_bg_fruitBowl-programfiles.package file is still needed! And should be placed in the program files folder :-)

I extracted the pineapple + pear from TNW’s 3t2 fruit hat (I edited the pineapple texture a bit to remove most of the shadows). The apples and oranges are extracted from seasons. The bananas are by soloriya (warning T$R) which alienpod​ kindly extracted for me<3

I also included 6 recolors of the bowl and 1 green recolor for the bananas. Since I couldn’t fit everything into one texture (milkshape’s scale system in the texture coordinate editor is not my best friend) and ts2 can only have two subsets, I decided the second subset would be the bananas. If I ever figure out how to scale mappings easily without any distortion, I’ll try again. But for now, this is the best I can do :-)

My bowl recolors can be used with HugeLunatic’s original CEP-extra (just skip my banana recolor and you’re good to go) if someone would like to use my recs but not my new default.

All files have been compressed to reduce file size, and for my recolors you can choose between merged and separate files. The CEP is required for this to work, and remember you can’t have any other default or CEP-extra for the fruit bowl in your downloads folder while using mine! Let me know if you encounter any issues :-)

  • EA’s original polycount: 1160
  • My default’s polycount: 4112

Credits: HugeLunatic for the CEP-extra I edited, alienpod​ for extracting soloriya’s bananas for me, TNW / joninmobile for the pineapple and pear, and lastly EA :-)
