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.

Hi all

I haven't seen one of these around lately so i thought i would make one for the community

It is cloned from the boom box so I'm guessing its Base Game compatible, NO EP'S required.

It is found under "Electronics" and "Audio".

So do your Sims have dreams of reliving the past and boogieing down to some 1930 classics? Ever wanted to own something from way back even when your granny wasn't born? Well now you can with the "Ye Old" 1931 gramophone.

Feel free to recolor!

You can tamper with this mesh and make whatever crazy contraption JUST GIVE ME CREDIT and don't claim my work as your own.


Kind Regards

Freezes my game as well. I love it, wish it would work. I am running the Holiday edition of the Base game.

Well, my game freezes, too. It freezes at the loading screen, but now, when I've removed it, the game runs smoothly. I only have the base game, but I have the Swedish edition of the game, could that be the problem?

This looks great, but I have to join in on saying that it freezes my game while loading. I have all the expansions up to OFB except Pets, so I don't think it's that.

That's wonderful, thanks.

Don't tell me to get in shape, I don't want to be a square! Or a triangle, for that matter...I don't really wan't to be a circle, either....I like being a non-shape. Does that mean i'm a blob? Nevermind.
I download, not upload. I'd like to, though!

This item doesn't work for me. It freezes up my game. I would love you to make more, like a phonograph, or an old television or something, good job. I like it.

I had some problems with this thing... it forced me to reboot my computer. I had to remove it from the game. All I ask is that you patch it so it will work with Nightlife.

Same thing happened to me.

I have the base game only the thing is- I had another gramophone installed, so that may have been it.
