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.
Another new mesh! This time its a lamp.

I'm kind of set on making as many BBC Sherlock props as possible (because I know from experience how annoying it can be to have to stick with 'close enough' when you're furnishing your sim John and Sherlock's flat as a Sherlockian - we tend to be perfectionists )

Having said that, it's a bit embarrassing to admit that the lamp is kinda sorta ... well, close enough. I didn't exactly get it completely right since I had to be careful with the polys. It looks a bit edgy rather than properly round, but with all the rings, that's as close as I could get without pushing the poly count ridiculously high up and even as it is, it's quite high already.

Anyway, since I've started to actually keep track of every item I make in a seperate text file (which for some reason makes me feel super professional, idk ), I'm now able to present you some more sorted object information than usual, here it comes:

Catalog Name: Moon Lamp
Price: 200
Catalog Description: "The lamp consists of a large numbers of ring-shaped, lacquered white discs which are suspended around the centrally located bulb. The fan-shaped discs hide the bulb and at the same time serve as reflectors, through which a soft light is spread throughout the room." -sherlockology.com
Catalog Location: Buy Mode ~> Lighting ~> Floor Lamps

So..I really hope you'll have fun with it in your game and keep an eye out for some more Sherlock props, since I've nearly finished a bunch of others (and have even more on the to do list )
