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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
G'day All,

This took longer than I imagined and it's still NQR. The request was made by TheLadyV.
It looks ok in the game, except for oven animations. Looks really dodgy when cooking a turkey but it does still work. Cloned from the Elegant Chef gas cooker.

Polycount is just under 2000 and it's ep compatible, it should work in the original game, can't test that here.

If anyone knows how to get the door animations to work correctly, please let me know and I will try and fix the mesh.

You may distribute this file freely or do what you will, but I'd appreciate it if it wasn't hosted on paysites.

Sorry about the quality of my snapshots, I always seem to take them at night time.

Style: Antique
Room: Kitchen
Maxis Flags: Not Applicable

Very cute and charming, perfect for an old house, very nice to look at, but the animations (round gas burners, an oven door that doesn't actually open, etc)...really threw me off it. I mean, sure, they're small details, but small details make things special. Despite that, I like I said - Very visually appealing. Nice to look at.

Download and use Q-Xpress installer right here on MTS2. It works with zips or rars. Or go to and hunt up any of the numerous free compression utilities available. Or go to and pay the fairly reasonable $29 for a license for WINRar. "Reasonable" is only relative to one's available income, of course, so I listed the free options first.

I love this stove, but I'm wondering -- is there any chance of it being updated for the latest EPs like Freetime and AL?

However, even if it is not updated I still am glad to have it.
