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.
As it says on the tin, this little organizational tweak simply takes the in-game MP3 player and LeTourney XS Handheld Game, and makes them buyable - AND - also recategorizes them to their proper places in the catalog. Well, the "proper" places according to me anyway! LOL!

There are similar mods to this (I found, after I figured out how make this by myself Note to self: check what's out there first!) but they are not categorized as I have done with these. My mod should work the same as these others - the items are just found in different places. If you have another mod that either makes these 2 items buyable, or recategorizes them in the catalog, please remove that mod before using mine.
The two similar mods that I am aware of are:
Neder's here, on MTS2
and Cyjon's on his site.

- There are 2 files, so you can pick and choose if, for some reason, you don't want both
- The MP3 player is buyable, and can be found in the catalog under electronics - in the audio/stereo section
- The Handheld Game is buyable, and can be found in the catalog under electronics - in the entertainment/games section
- If you want the cellphone too, please get it from either Neder or Cyjon - as both of them have it, and it's already in the correct category.

To make it so the star/astrick doesn't show up - it is an in-game object, after all! - put it in your "Bins" folder. That's where I keep mine and it works great!
Install here: C:\Program Files (x86)\EA GAMES\The Sims 2\TSData\Res\Catalog\Bins

Polygon Counts:
MP3 player = same as Maxis
Handheld Game = same as Maxis

Special thanks to Phaenoh who taught me how to recategorize everything!
