Ye Olde Grandfather Clock

- "TS2 style", gold face with Roman numerals
- "Haunted House" with peeling paint, a silver face and Hindu-Arabic numerals
- "Western" (I guess?) loosely based on a plainer one handed down from my actual grandfather
- "Slightly more contemporary with no numbers and a copper theme because I was tired of wood"
The clock keeps the correct time, though alas, it's not windable nor (as far as I know) tinkerable. If EA gives us a proper clock in some future expansion, or at least one with a moving pendulum, I may update this one accordingly.
This item has been successfully tested in a base-game only installation as well as with both EP's installed. Please report any issues you may encounter.
I offer my apologies for the choppy appearance of the clockworks in the screen shots. Because of the visual effect the case glass has on anything behind it, it's very difficult to get a good clear picture of them.
1750 vertices, 1205 faces
Mesh and source texture by Maxis
Constructed using Milkshape 3D, TSR Workshop, and Thanks to Inge and Peter Jones, Jynx, cmomoney, atavera, orangemittens, Apple, Cyclonesue, and anyone I forgot
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 for more information.
Description: My grandfather's clock was too large for the shelf, so it stood ninety years on the floor. 'cause grandfather clocks do that. Converted from ts2by ambular

Key: - File was updated after upload was posted
1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.
For Package files:
1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).
For Sims3Pack files:
1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).
Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
