Alternative Microphone + Stand (Mirror Functions)
Uploaded 14th Aug 2015 at 4:21 PM · Updated 2nd Feb 2017 at 11:46 PM by Esmeralda
Here's just a simple object for those who, like me, would like some extra microphone variety in both form and function in addition to the joke microphone that comes with the game. This is a remake of my old TS3 Functional Microphone and Stand, and as was the case with that version, it is a floor mirror clone and uses the mirror speech functions. So with this mic you can have an additional set of animations and skills to those that came with the default joke mic.
It comes in 8 colours as below: 1) All Grey, 2) Green and Grey, 3) Purple and Grey, 4), Rusty, 5) Grey and Black, 6) Blue and Black, 7) Red and Black, and 8) a Multicolour pattern for more flamboyant sims.
Please note that with this item, the mic stays on the stand and does not detach into the sim's hand like the default one. It's found in the Creative section under Activities and Skills, where the default microphone is, and costs 100 simoleons.
On its menu, you get the choices for all mirror speech interactions, just with the CAS appearance-related ones removed:
(Nice teeth...!) Useful for different animations for storytelling, such as looking like they're telling jokes as above, or for giving the appearance of a singer or rapper with a band:
Minor Issue when placing the mic: For some reason, cloning this item as a floor mirror resulted in the sim standing much further back than expected (unlike in TS3 where it was quite close), and the only way I could get the sim to stand close enough was to move the mesh and footprint backward. Because of that, if you turn the mic around when placing it, it turns on a couple-tile turning circle rather than turning from its centre. So if/when you see this happen, don't panic, it's normal.
Thanks for looking, hope you'll find this a little useful variety.
My TS3 version is here: http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=442832
Unzip the file and move the .package file to your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\Mods folder.
Made with Sims 4 Studio and Blender.
Original meshes and textures were from TS2.
This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below for more information.

I'm pretty easygoing, please just don't steal or copy my work.
You may recolour my meshes, just please credit me and give a link back here to the item(s).
You may include my creations with your sims, lots, storytelling, etc - just please credit me and give a link back here to my item(s).
Don't claim my creations to be your own work, don't re-upload my stuff to paysites, adfly sites or similar, or to The Gallery.
And, please don't copy my work and upload it here. I learned that's allowed when someone duplicated my Sims 2 Servo conversion and got Featured for it. But, as happened with that person, you'll be disrespected by other Simmers for copying. Because of that, I now ask that if you choose to duplicate my work, you must credit me for having done it first and give a link to my item.
