Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I set out trying to make the TS2 plumbob look like the one in the TS3 ads. While I didn't entirely succeed, I am fairly pleased with the result and thought I would share.

This is a very small file (10k) which replaces the default plumbob mesh and alters the Material Definitions for each plumbob color to make it shinier and prettier. My testing indicates the mod should work with any EP installed from Nightlife on up (and possibly University, though it looked a bit odd and I am not entirely comfortable recommending it.) Sadly, it doesn't seem to work properly with the base game alone. If this can be fixed, anyone who knows how is welcome to do it.

Please report any issues you may encounter.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.
