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:

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

These look so good in game! I almost didn't d'l this mesh because I was having difficulty really seeing in my mind's eye what the true effect would be in a room but because I have loved the other items you have offered, I decided to give them a try. Boy, am I ever glad I got them and thank you so much for sharing them with all of us!

Also glad I came back to write a quick thank you. When I saw piewicked's comment about using them in a garden, I could immediately see the benefit of using them in this way, too. These small lights are going to turn out to be even more versatile than I thought!

There are visible ceiling tiles, and glow lights for them here:

and made a mess, (a sweet caress)
