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.

Have you noticed that in TS2 there are no outdoor wall lamps? Yes, you can put an indoor sconce out of your front door, but the result it's not nice, in my opinion.

So, though 3D modeling is absolutely not my preferred subject , I've created this outdoor metal lantern.
The lamp has two recolourable parts, and each comes in two colours: a dark rusty brown frame coupled with a yellow glass, and a white frame coupled with a white glass.

Additional recolours for the frame and/or the glass can be created in the usual way (Object Workshop); note that the glass is textureless, and can be recoloured only editing the Material Definition.

Grazie mille Numenor, you've created again something beautiful!

I wish to know what Maxis had in mind designing all these doubtful lights, it might have been a cynical attitude?
You and all these talented guys have added so much to the game.
Thank you so much for your fantastic work!

My Sims thank you very much because I refused to place the wireframed exterior light fixtures (yuck) on any of their houses. This is really great! Thank you!!

Awww, shucks! Thanks Numenor!! I know that ANYthing you have a hand in will work just fine in my game.
I see so many great modders(on many sites) thanking you for helping them fix problems with their files...I can't even change a color (even after TRYING to follow the many tutorials). Thanks, Genious.

Thank you so much, I've been really missing these type of lamps in my game. For some reason, Maxis missed these and lighting does not seem to be a favourite mesh.
