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 is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Welcome to the third set release in the Manor House Collection. This is the Kitchen set, which I have a feeling a lot of people will enjoy.

This set has been split into two parts. This is part one and features all the appliances, counters and cabinets.

----JAN. 14 UPDATE: PLEASE READ---
Being the ditz that I am, I forgot to change the GUID settings of the kitchen island, which means it was overwriting the original Maxis table I cloned it from and generally running amok and vexing innocent simmers.
I have fixed the aberrant island file, but if you have already downloaded the kitchen set, you will need to download the fixed island.

If you are downloading the set for the first time, then you are safe.

When I packaged a lot today (that included absolutely no CC) Clean Installer said your kitchen island was included, when it wasn't... what's going on there? :/
Love the set though, thanks! :D

Remember, being paranoid doesn’t mean they’re not after you.

Very nice. Love all your creations. They help me making old style houses. Keep creating this cool stuff! :P

Me, me, me against them, me against enemies, me against friends, somehow they all seem to become one, a sea full of sharks and they all smell blood.

I'm not entirely sure The island is just a plain old dining table with raised placement slots...it's not a hacked or modded object. Have you tried the help forums?

Thank you for making this set; it is lovely, as are all your Manor House creations. (I don't even like traditionally-styled items usually, but your sets have won me over.)

Let me add my voice to the chorus of those wanting a Seasons-ready fridge, and while you're at it, could you update it for FT functions as well? (Serve platters, cuisine enthusiasm. Relevant thread here: http://www.moreawesomethanyou.com/s....html#msg319972) I find I don't often use CC in game that is incompatible with later eps.

Thanks for your many contributions to the community.

This is a beautiful set. I'd download it in a second if the fridge worked with Seasons. Do the other appliances have the "tinker" interaction from Free Time?
