OK small changes made - Cabinets are now flush with the other cabinets.
Forbidden Fruit, Value, and Art Nouveau (Chicilettina Sardinia) are done.. although the Art Nouveau one doesn’t quite match up at the top. Will fix it before release.
Red flashy light, is still seen. And base game alarm works in base game.
The other thing I’m going to do is repository the alarm hood (the metal bit) to the Value Alarm Hood, so that way we can just recolour the metal bit once for all of them.
I’m working on the basis that I’ll release these all out into the wild by expansion pack (Base game first) over at MTS. Or would you prefer them released another way?

Awesomesauce! :D May I suggest you move the alarm effect down a bit? IMO it looks a little odd to have it sit far above the cabinet. :) (Unless you want it that way, of course - it is your cabinet.)
Love to Nix - just have no idea how to move it. I’ve got a WIP over at leefish. If you know how, can you let me know?
No problem, will do that tomorrow. You know where to find me ;)
You already have a pm and link to hood goodness. :)
If you want, I can test it in an AGS/BG-only environment for you :)
That would be fabulous Klaartje. Thanks!
Good news. It works in play mode and doesn’t crash the game.
I do need a tester that can do it just in base game (I’ll send you the value hood alarm). To make sure that it doesn’t crash the base game. :)
Latest Alarm Hood - is one to match the value counter. (Demonstrated using the cherry kitchen recolour that I did yoinks ago)
I think I confused people with my last question.
1. I’m going to do the alarm hoods for ALL the EA Counters from all expansions, base game and stuff packs.
2. I believe there are islands for all the counters - and I will track down all the urls for them also.
3. I was thinking along the lines of more deco I can repository to the counter - e.g. full length cabinet that also acts like a bookcase, or one that can be used as a desk for kitchen work etc.
Or other shapes of overhead cabinet. (I’m a great admirer of the glass door’ed cabinets and open shelves).
New Simbler for Downloads Only
OK. Hood is
1. Slaved to the counters.
2. Metal part is separately recolourable also.
3. AL Shiftable with Googalar’s fix.
4. Hides on cutaway the same as paintings.
Haven’t tested it with a sim yet, that comes next, and also thinking about what other bits and pieces I can add to it to make a full kitchen.
If you were to make a kitchen out of EA counters and add-ons - what would you like?
Because I will be getting a new computer soon (I hope) I made a new simbler where I will be posting a lot of stuff I made. A lot of it has been posted elsewhere but I’ll be posting new stuff too!
I’ll also be posting other creator’s work (with links) that I really like and want to put in my game…
Go check out Dee’s stuff - it’s really good!
Oh Simmers of Tumblr - Upper Cabinet with Hoods.
So I’m fiddling with milkshape because I’m in the mood to have upper cabinets fitted with hoods, and I want them to be a smoke alarm as well.
This one is the Forbidden Fruit Cabinet with Hood. There’s a red light added next to the brand on the hood.
ETA: Here is an in-game pic, with the normal upper cabinet next to it.
going back into milkshape to make the cabinet the same size as the original. But I think it’s looking pretty good.
Then going back to make it AL Shiftable. Googolar (or however you spell it, doesn’t work for smoke alarms).
So. Question -
1. do you want the Hood part recolourable?
2. Am I wasting my time? Has someone already done this before?
