This is a featured upload!
Again with the update, it's been a long, long time!
It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I was recently asked to add a re-colorable subset to the mesh, after numerous attempts I resorted to totally redoing it instead. It now has re-colorable inserts that you can mix or match to the frame to suit your taste or mood.
**Please note that any recolors made for the old mesh will not work properly on this new version, I'm sorry about that but it was the only way I could get it to work.
(OLD UPDATE) Major Update for compatibility with the New Scriptorium Installer by Numenor
I've been building early American style homes and wanted fireplaces for them that matched the style. The ones in the game just don't look right and you probably know what I think of them anyway :D.
It works exactly like the Maxis fireplaces, even has the same chimney.
For a fireplace, it is low poly, 1424, and vert, 1601.
You are welcome to post and share any recolors of the mesh that you create wherever you wish, just provide a link to the mesh on MTS2 or to my own site so the correct installation instructions can be found.
you must follow these instructions carefully or the fireplace will not show up in your game. These instructions are based on installing my fireplace using Numenor's THE SCRIPTORIUM Installer.
In the zip
you will find a txt file named, "99_CTNColonial_Fireplace.txt".
After installing the Scriptorium go to your, ".....\My Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\Downloads", folder and double click on a the new shortcut you will find there named, "Scriptorium_Fireplaces".
It will open the folder where you must put that txt file, no editing of any Maxis files involved. (This is the actual path that the shortcut takes you to, "C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2\TSData\Res\Catalog\Scripts\Scriptorium_Fireplaces".)
**Please remember to remove the old txt file from the Scriptorium folder.
Then just place the fireplace package and it's recolors in your usual Downloads folder.
That's it, Enjoy
Install instructions are also included in the zip.
This should work with all versions of TS2, if you have any problems please let me know.
