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.
here are some Far East style lanterns I've made - and the rope set to place these on!
All base game compatible.

If you have IKEA SP, you can pick alternative light settings,

Update 02.01.21: Corrected Large Lantern Rope pole lenght.

Versatile Lantern Rope Set
Outdoor cords for ceiling lamps:
Buy Mode/Lighting/Miscellaneous
Versatile Lantern Rope - 29 S - The required mesh. Has five placement slots.
Slant Versatile Lantern Rope - 30 S - 6 slots
Large Versatile Lantern Rope - 31 S - 13 slots, cloned from Bayon coffee table by

Wall Bracket for Ceiling Lamps (and other stuff*) - 11 S - includes a few recolors, 1 slot, shiftable with AL.
- with this bracket you can 'hang' ceiling lamps on outside walls, trees, poles..
*When I tested it with UNI+NL only,
hanging plants didn't move into the right spot.

All these are in fact 1-tile objects. To "hang" ceiling lamps, you always move it to the area where the green square shows up:

After you've filled the slots, you can place it on shiftable OMSPs to adjust the height -
and remove one or both poles by picking a right recolor.

Indoor Use:
There's one issue: objects placed on cords or brackets usually look too dark indoors,
that happens because the actual placement slots are located below the floor level.
Sometimes that can be corrected by placing the whole object on a shiftable OMSP shelf,
and moving it down to where you want it.
