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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
As I personally like lots of small lamps on the wall (and have those in my home), I decided to make them for The Sims also.

They appear under "wall mounted" in the catalog and may be a little difficult to spot... :o)

They come with a matching walllightpattern for every single small bulb.

220 vertices, 362 polys, that's fewer than maxis' single lightbulb... :o)

Have fun! :howdy:

I already said "thanks," but then I wondered...any chance of a ceiling light to match?

@StellaLuna23: What for? You can't see the ceilings and if I would make this object into a ceilinglamp the only achievement would be lots of lightdots hovering in the middle of the room...

All my little sim kids are jumping up and down at the coolness of this. And me, too :D

And you made me remember nite-bright! That was the coolest. Until you lost all the little color insert bits, anyway.
