Fruitful Kitchen  

I made this set for the July project at GOS. I thought I ought to cross-post it, just in case. Or maybe just because?

This was my first post that was more than just a “thank you” at GOS, and I was rather intimidated. Would it be cool enough? Would someone make a hate secret about how much I suck and how presumptuous I am to think that anyone would want it? Luckily, it met GOS guidelines and no hate secrets. Guess I’m not cool enough for that, yet.

Anyway, these are recolors of base game meshes. The kitchen counters, stoves, and refrigerators are available in the solid colors, and the curtains, chairs, and table tops are available in selected patterns. For patterns and color samples used, look:

Zip file is a whopping 3.97 MB, but that’s because I used DXT5 formats on the tables, chairs, and curtains, and the counters have dirty states. However, everything is compressorized already. Download

After decorating my SelfSim’s home with the Fruitful Kitchen recolors I made earlier, I realized I forgot something very important to me: the dishwasher. I don’t have one in real life, but I want one desperately. I’m even considering buying a counter-top model. It’s very cute. I don’t even live in an apartment, and I want it. I do live in a practically historical house (was actually built during WWII, when nobody was building homes) with limited space and water/electrical hookups, which is the reason I don’t get a full-sized model.

Sorry. Digression. Anyway, these match the Fruitful Kitchen solid colors.

As always, files are compressorized and in .zip format.

I forgot to add a preview for the dirty state of the Fruitful Kitchen counters. Basically I took the Maxis dirty state and tried to preserve the groddiness while overlaying it onto the textures I recolored. Nothing special, just thought I’d add it.

So nice! I can't wait to see the fruit-curtains in my game, thanks for this!
Oh and I can totally submit a hate secret about it if you want, a nice one :D

I hope you like them. I had a little trouble with the curtain texture going crunchy on me, even when I increased it to DXT5. It is a small texture file (128x128 or 64x64... something to small for the mesh, IMO)

Also, eep! Even the possibility of a secret of any sort just makes me nervous.

I'm back to raid things, and I totally didn't know you'd made this set on GoS. I abuse it like woah. :D

Ha, I have a a hard time resisting it myself/ Glad you like it - I get warm fuzzies when I spot it in someone's screenshots!
