House at the Night before Christmas by Melissa
While (painfully slowly) working on “10 Things to do with Shelves, pt. 2”, I got an idea of creating a unique fireplace.
You only need a couple of building materials and a bunch of fog emitters, and you’ve got yourself a lovely interesting fireplace that will burn ‘til eternity and never catch on fire.
Choose where you want to have the DIY fireplace. It can be 1 tile wide, or 2 tile, or 3 or more. For this tutorial, I’m making a 2x1 fake fireplace. Line it on the sides with either a single wall, or a 1x1 tile wall construction.
The fire effect comes from the fog emitter (which can by located in BuyDebug menu, after you use “TestingCheatsEnabled On” and “BuyDebug” cheats). You’ll need a surface to put the fog emitter on. Ideally, I’d advise choosing a pedestal (do mind that some pedestals won’t hold a fog emitter, but AFAIK, all of the WA pedestals do). If you don’t have WA, you can either use a kitchen counter (same height as a pedestal) or a kitchen table (bit lower than pedestals).
I’ll be using one of the WA pedestals. Here I’ve placed 3 in the fireplace space
Now we need to assign effects to the fog emitters. This thread has a huge library of fog emitter codes.
I’ve identified some flame effects I’d like to use:
s30_fireplace2x1burninggreen for a smaller green blaze
s30_fireplace2x1raginggreen for a larger green blaze
To add an effect to the fog emitter, Ctrl+Shift+click it (may have to use “TestingCheatsEnabled On” if you still haven’t), and choose “Set Visual Effect”. In the newly popped up window, key in or copy+paste the desired code.
Place the fog emitters on their respective surfaces. I’m placing the fog emitter with larger blaze effect on the middle pedestal and smaller flames on the two side pedestals.
Test it out, since you can’t see what fog emitters are doing unless you’re in Live Mode.
Good enough for the sake of this tutorial. In the intro pic I use either 5 or 7 fog emitters for a more dense fire. You’re free to have more, just remember you need a new surface for every new fog emitter.
Next, grab some shelving (2 will do) and shift them so they cover the surfaces.
Grab a half-wall or a fence of your liking and wall in the space for a neat finish.
Decorate, recolour, add furniture and enjoy your magnificent DIY fireplace!

Poster recolors because of the lazy. Not lazy. Just..I love posters.
All posters are shown in the preview and require Maxis meshes.
Advent Calendar Day 6
14 recolors of Aikea Guinea’s half height shiftable sticker. I love kid rooms to look lived in, so these were a necessary addition. The file names are all descriptive, so you can pick and choose what you like. Mesh is included.
