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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Holiday Roof Lights:
Seasons or higher expansion pack required
I love the creator themes and I enjoy them even more when I get excited about an idea - like roof lights for the Seasons and Celebrations theme! I repurposed some Maxis meshes and made them into roof deco so you can go all out decorating your Sims houses this season.
***These are cloned from roof decorations so you'll need any expansion pack Seasons or higher for them to work.***
Player/Live mode friendly (deco hides with the roof off)
Covers Hipped and Mansard rooves
45°, 35° and 15° angles for Gabled and Shed rooves
DIY wall set that's building cheat friendly Note: These are cloned from curtains and require Goggalor's ALL shiftables to be height adjustable. I recommend installing all of them (so everything in game shifts) but if you'd rather not all you need Lee's shiftcurtains2 here for the DIY wall lights to shift.
Video: Some babble and demonstration. Unfortunately the video quality turned out poor - the lights are pretty in game.
The wreaths and pine tree are lighted but the roof lights aren't (too much light with every tile lit up!). I recommend using invisible lights where needed. Nix has a lovely set of invisible lights here .
These won't be replaced with a Maxis object if you remove these from your download folder.
The Gable Wreath is the master for the set.
Everything is located in Lighting / Miscellaneous and is priced to sort in a logical order for ease of use.
Lights: Range from 238 to 745 (see chart)
Pine Tree: 1167
These aren't particularly high poly but they're not low. If you need to limit your landscaping for performance reasons you'll probably want to limit how many of these lights you place too.
The pine tree was cloned from Gwenke's seasonal shrubs and was a life saver! SimPE, Maxis for the meshes and textures and MTS as always for hosting, the knowledge and for the inspiration too.
I was already tempted to load my "real" game because of a house I want to recreate.. now I KNOW that's what I'm going to do! Then I'm going to go to bed knowing that when I get up my game will be ready (well, will have been for a while.. it doesn't take hours to load, lol) and I can get to building AND decorating! Thanks for these!! <3
Delurking to say THANK YOU for these gorgeously gorgeous lights! We Swedes love our holiday lights ('cause it's dark up here at this time of year) and my Sims do, too, and now their 'hoods can look properly festive. So thank you! (And thanks for the shout-out!)
Are the DIY lights supposed to be shiftable up and down? If they are, it isn't working for me.
Yes, not the octogonal roof piece, but the vertical & horizontal wall ones should shift with Apartment Life. If I remember correctly, I cloned these from curtains so they might shift because I have these shiftable mods in by Goggalor and Lee (which I recommend if anyone doesn't have them).
Thanks for letting me know you have a problem. I can't look at them tonight but I'll check them and update if needed. ETA: bassoon_crazy, these do need Lee's shiftable curtain mod to shift. I recommend all of the shiftables but if you just want the curtain mod for the lights to shift you can get that by itself here.
