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 here is a sleek, working Mini-Fridge! It is based off of one of the Sims 3 base refrigerators, but with some obvious tweaks! Priced at a reasonable 300 simoleans, and with two design options (Single Door & Double Door) and 3 different placement options (Left, Center, & Right) you can enjoy this item to its fullest!

Thanks to "cmomoney", he has fixed the issue with the food appearing above the fridge. The new, updated versions are now available for download.

Although the Mini Freeze works and looks amazing...It is a prototype.

The Mini Freeze was built specifically for looks and although the animation is off she still works like any fridge! One great feature I love about the Mini Freeze is that it can be placed underneath cabinents! It is also the same exact height as counters and therfore blends against them nicely when using the left or right placement. Unfortunately, I have yet to figure out if I can get it to snap under counters

A couple things I couldnt figure out was making the interior of the Mini Freeze appear and the door hinge correctly. Im sure you all can do without until I can figure it out

If you know where I could have messed up and how I can fix this, please let me know so I can update it so its closer to perfection!

Here is a height comparison of it to a regular sized fridge.

Obviously fridges are used only for a few brief seconds, so they are mainly for looks anyways right!?

Works and looks great, Im happy and I hope you all enjoy!

Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
