Wallis Wallie was a middling design artist here at Daedalus Industries. Evidently, he ate too much fast food, which led to a massive coronary at his drafting table. We found a lamp design among his papers, and it tested through the roof with focus groups, so we named it after old Wallie and started production.
Inspired by yet another TV show set, I started on these thinking it would be a quickie project, due to the simple design. Well... lamps seem to have a way of turning "quickie" into "a lot of %*&^ing work."
Needless to say, I now know a little about BHAVS, change states, #STR lists, and material/mesh changes. So much goes on inside these little lamps!
To keep them visually interesting, I made the shades metallic grates instead of glass.
I also spent a few hours learning how to use the beveling tool in Blender, but the results (even though AMAZING in Blender) don't really show very well in the game.
This set uses the repository system, with the floor lamp as MASTER. This means that the floor lamp MUST
to be in your downloads folder, whether you use it or not, in order for the textures to show on the other lamps. As usual, please feel free to recolor, include in lots, and pretty much anything you like, as long as I get credited for the mesh.
I'm calling the style of these lamps Industrial Chic. Hope you like them.
Some technical info:
All textures were generated with Genetica Viewer and manipulated in GIMP 2.8.
