Behold the Default Remote in all its Glory



Behold its Hi-Res textures... ...(this is the actual texture map, I did not shrink it.)

Now, I understand the remote flashes on screen for maybe 2 seconds and isn't all that significant....

...but....

....what about storytellers who want to take pictures of sims using the remote?

SO I made a default replacement for it...

This download simply replaces the remote accessory that appears when sims turn on certain electronics and appliances (TV and Heater from Seasons). Rather than seeing the default EA mesh, this new mesh will appear in-game. I'm actually surprised no one made this sooner (or at least I couldn't find one ).




I tried to minimize clipping as much as possible, and for the most part, the remote fits comfortably within the sim's hand.
Now, I'm sure some of you may have recognized that this looks very similar to a certain remote xfinity comcast.
Yes, I made a "sim-friendly" version with Maxis match textures and simlish text.

POLY COUNT

Vertices: 2352
Polygons: 3044

The default remote isn't the best for storytelling because of its low-poly mesh and low-res textures, it also looks a bit dated, so I made this mesh to enhance picture-taking and movie-making scenes. While this is intended to be used for picture-taking (hence the higher poly count and larger texture map), it also works quite well for regular gameplay. You should not encounter any slowdowns during gameplay since the remote appears only momentarily and is relatively low poly (or at least lower in poly than most hairs ).

MAKE SURE YOU DON'T HAVE ANY OTHER CC THAT REPLACES THE TV REMOTE CONTROL (lol I doubt you will find any )
