This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
This download is part of the Neanderthal Creator Challenge
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Update: It was reported that this wasn't BaseGame compatible. I've recloned it and rebuilt it, but as my CD drive is borked atm, I can't use my AnyGame to test it in that game environment. The new version will overwrite the old and does work for all EPs, but somebody test it out in BG and let me know. I'm 98% confident that I fixed it correctly though. Thanks! - Aug. 2, 2008

I really suck at planning ahead. Like really. Yet another challenge entry right around the deadline. This time my problem was (once again) what should I make? Well, I looked around and tried to figure out exactly what was missing for your Neanderthals to make a good life for themselves and I couldn't find a decent stove or grill that suited them. So I made one. I took the ugly boxy community grill and tossed the coals on the ground and borrowed a couple of Fido's fetch sticks and built myself a little open coals spit grill. You can make hamburgers and hot dogs on it. If you have custom foods that you can cook on a grill (a Hunk o' Flesh perhaps?) you can cook it on this too.


This cute little grill is also useful OUTSIDE the theme! Campers enjoy the roughing-it feeling it provides and every little Sim Scout out there is bound to have to set one of these up to earn their Merit Badges!


My First Time: Not learning how to do something new on the Challenge Theme...

Previous Knowledge: Basic Milkshape skillz.

Compatibility: Anybody and Everybody

Polygon Counts:
FaceCount: 587
VertexCount: 493

Custom Content by Me:
- Open Coals Rotisserie Spit

Nitty-gritty: Please don’t upload any of my creations anywhere, they are my toys to share, but I want to be the one to share them. If you use my grill in a lot you upload, please link back to me instead of including it. Thanks for respecting my work! You can, however, recolor it and upload those recolors here at MTS2 without asking for my permission. Not sure why you'd want to, but go for it if you want too!

Enjoy!
-Pheanoh


Additional Credits:
#Create, I think I asked for help or advice or something from them in there on this one. I dunno, I'm having trouble differentiating the days from each other, let alone conversations at this point...

All the CC in the pictures can be found on MTS2, I've used a combination of other contest entries (Create a Cave is wonderful!) and downloads from the Simstone's Project. If you are looking for something I used, cruise around a bit on the site, there are lots of hidden (older) goodies available! The Neanderthals themselves I created after some research on the facial structure.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Anything they can cook on a grill they can cook on this. I have no idea about the fish as I've never tried to BBQ them.

all right, way to go.
Even a cavemen's wife has to have a way to cook for him.
thanks

I like that the coals glow when you cook, like they would on the regular grill, nicely done.

If my mediocre talent wasn't limited to body meshing, I'd build my Sims a Temple of Phaenoh where they could worship at your feet. This is absolutely brilliant! I'm not to keen on Neanderthal, but I can totally see a rebellious engineer or others using this to grill hamburgers over the warp core... Best of luck in the contest!!

Thanks Phaenoh! Your talent never ceases to amaze me. I'd ask you to marry me too but my heart belongs to someone else who put the ring on my finger to prove it.

I thought we were ALREADY worshipping at her feet! (Not that it wouldn't be a good idea to have an organized worshipfest for Phaenoh! )

Awesome, Phaenoh - as always! Thank you!
