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.
So I'm starting to build a replica of my house and noticed a few things that Ea really dropped the ball on. The first being no overhead cabinets. Really EA? So I did it for them. I remeshed the five main kitchen cabinets so that they'd fit over the fridge and stove. Same textures, same polys, same stencils. All cabinets are in the cabinets category right next to the original, the stove hood is also in cabinets. These will aslo make a corner at the normal length. You do NOT need "moveobjects on" cheat, I've fixed it for you. Along with these I've made a stove hood to match. Very very low poly, one channel, does not need "moveobjects on." The hood acts as a smoke alarm. Currently trying to figure out how to do the store cabinets, weird stuff be happening. I think that's it.

OMG! I forgot to mention you can make them invisible, you must have the invisible scripts from MTS for them to work. I did this so that you can make a corner with 3 pieces and make one of the ends invisible while leaving the corner piece a corner.
Invisible Script

Please re-download if you were having routing issues. Big thank you for everyone that helped with the trouble shooting.

I've only put compatibility with LN because one of them is from that EP.

I'm incredibly sorry for those of you experiencing route failure issues with these. I am not experiencing this and have tested a few things out and cannot replicate. If and when I figure this out I will update.

Object Name - F/V - price
Stove Hood- 40/80 - 45

Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
