Modular Furniture Series 4- Kitchen


It's been a while, and I'm sorry. I was wicked busy wrapping up the final two episodes of Season 7 of my story, and RL suddenly got very real. But I'm back now, at least for a while (While I'm taking another 2-month break from my story, I'll be working on more of these furniture sets).

This is the second installment of my modular furniture set. This one includes mostly kitchen and dining room stuff. There are 43 new objects. The set includes:

I have spent massive amounts of time playtesting this set. I tested each object individually, and hammered out all the kinks. As far as I've seen, there are no glitches and everything works exactly as it should as far as slave textures, joint alignment, placement, etc.

A few notes about the project: Series 4 is a bit of a misnomer. Prior to this set, I've only made two other modular furniture sets. But as it complements the Cargo Bay Series 4 set, it seemed incongruent to name it Series 3. Unless otherwise noted, objects are base-game (See more specific descriptions below).

The focus of this set is to create realistic crew quarters, kitchens, bridges, etc. The furniture is designed to be stacked together, giving your sims' kitchens, mess halls, and replimats a built-in look, for more realistic sets and backdrops. As I am more of a storyteller/ dollhouser than an actual player, my main focus was on how good the objects look in-game, but they have been thoroughly playtested and work well for players who focus on gameplay, too.

Please read carefully: The single bed, data console, and utility chair from the crew quarters set provide the master textures for this entire set. As the repository technique is used, I have included the repository objects so you don't get flashing blue textures in your game. To keep the size of the file reasonable, THE RECOLORS FOR THESE THREE OBJECTS AREN'T INCLUDED. They can be downloaded from the crew quarters post, HERE.

For the kitchen set, the range contains the repository textures/materials for the glass and the burner used in the other objects. The 1x1 dining table section (paneled) contains the glowing panel texture that the other objects are slaved to. I've included several recolors for each of these objects.

Note: all files have been Compressorized.

Replicators and Matter Retreival Units

For sims that don't like to cook. The replicators create most types of food (they're cloned from my previous replicators) and the matter retreival units destroy dishes and garbage (just like a real replicator). The retreival units are cloned from Sophie-David's Trashmatic. The corner matter retreival unit is designed to be used in conjuntion with the 2-tile replicator; together they're supposed to form a single object.
