Thank you so much--this is great! Old-fashioned appliances are such a rarity for our games.

I am looking for someone who can convert a couple of TS2 meshes to TS3 for my world project. If you would be willing to consider this please PM me for details.

Thank you for creating this! I think the white porcelain reclour will also blend in very nicely in medieval-style neighbourhoods.

Gorgeous set.....as soon as I put this in my sim home ...they had to have coffee and kept on going to coffee....so I had to take it out and put it back only when I want them to drink coffee...but this is so gorgeous thank you

Yes, these are lovely, with an authentic eye for detail and (mercifully) a subtlety of colouring. The only problem I found with this set in-game is the attraction seems set off the scale, with sims trekking from far corners of the lot to drink themselves silly on coffee and then quit it when their bladder need maxs. An object can be *too* attractive....

This is really beautiful and well-done. I agree with John Connor though, the Sims find it way too irresistible and don't want to do anything but drink coffee. So I have to put it in inventory much of the time.

Where is this located, please? I've downloaded it several times and it just doesn't seem to appear in my game. It should be in small appliances, correct?
