plus several recolors.

As always, I've 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. Please feel free to report any issues.

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 shops, stores, gaming parlors and wedding pavillions 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.

Most of theobjects in this set are just replacements for their Maxis counterparts. I tried to retain what I could of the original objects.

Please read carefully: The single bed from the crew quarters set, Desk A from the ready room set, and the 5-tile, 5-panel console from Bridge Set 1 provide some of the master textures for this 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 RECOLORS THREAD.

Note: all files have been Compressorized.

Cash Register and Ticket Machine

The cornerstones of any community lot. They work just like their Maxis counterparts

Details:
Price: Cash Register §200, Ticket machine §500
Polys: Cash register 726, Ticket machine 256
Recolorable subsets: Base and panel
Egghead stuff: They work like their Maxis counterparts.


Community Matter Retreival Unit

A great to put garbage or dirty dishes. Based on Sophie-David's Trashmatic.

Details:
Price: §100
Polys: 240
Recolorable subsets: Base
Egghead stuff: An object that disintegrates trash and dirty dishes. I take no credit for the brilliant BHAVs.


Washing Machine

Based on an older object I created, from my Blue Heaven series. The bottom machine is functional and wahses your sim's funky clothes to maximize his/her hygeine. The top machine is strictly deco.

Details:
Price: §300
Polys: 1332
Recolorable subsets: Base and panels
Egghead stuff: They object works like so: the sim disrobes and puts his/her clothes in the machine, waits a bit, takes the clean clothes out and puts them back on. The "Wash Undies" option is not recommended for minors.
• The deco object is place-anywhere and can be stacked on the bottom washer with no special cheats.


Snack Machine and Soda Machine

They work just like their Maxis counterparts. Because why would every single starbase and station offer frre food at the replicators when it can turn a profit by charging for it?

Details:
Price: §1600
Polys: 352
Recolorable subsets: Base and panel
Egghead stuff: The panel is recolorable in both states (empty and stocked) but for the time being it just has the base texture. I might make some panel recolors in the future.

I originally made this to go with the kitchen set, but it really didn't fit. This is a big stove for restaurants.

Details:
Price: §2500
Polys: 2276

Details:
Price: §250
Polys: 496

Polys: 2354

Egghead stuff: It works just like the Maxis espresso machine.


Buffet Platter

Cloned from the medieval buffet platter by the talented Sunni, which in turn was cloned from Simwardrobe's modular automatic buffet table .

Details:
Price: §50
Polys: 444
Recolorable subsets: Base
Egghead stuff: It works like the original buffet platter, but I replaced the init BHAV with a place-anywhere BHAV so it can be placed on tables or counters with no special cheats.

    1. Thanks for the positive feedback. The washing machines are kind of special; they're from an older set of objects I made, but I updated them and adapted them for the modular set. And I can't really take credit for most of these. There are a LOT of talented creators over at Plumbbob Keep, and most of the objects in this set that aren't original Maxis objects are taken from those creations.
