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.

UPDATE NUMERO UNO: Ok, I went in and did as todd said, so now the PS2 shoud no longer be green. Tell me if it fixes it, because I have no way of testing it since mine never had the problem in the first place
Oh yes, and I went and and added new cataloge text
Download the new package files below and be sure that they REPLACE the original ones.
One more thing, if you feel the need to download the PS2, but are worried about the controllers conflicting with the Xbox controllers, they shouldn't. todd has added specific instructions telling his Xbox to only to load this controllers with a specific GUID. (Btw, todd if you could post or PM instructions on exactly how you did that I would greatly appreciate it.) But anyways,no worries about that.

UPDATE NUMERO DOS: Major props go out to raquelcesar who graciously made the controllers independent to the PS2 Make sure you download the new package below and replace both files. You're original Maxis controllers should also return to there original state

Alright, heres what all of you have begged for since the Xbox

Credit goes to:
Deathfox for the mesh
Mehself for the texture
3dcafe for the controller mesh (Which I edited up a little)

One problem though. The controllers are replacing the original Maxis controllers . When I replaced the GUID for the controllers, they weren't showing up, so I had to keep the original which overwrites the originial controllers. I believe the Xbox had this problem at first and didn't know how to get around it. They did indeed fix it, but I dont know how. If anyone could so kindly outline the steps to get the PS2 to only recongnize the PS2 Controllers I would greatly apprieciate it as my next project is a Gamecube.

Thanks guys :D

Hey, maybe you could make Recolor/ours of the PS2, so you can wish for a rainbow PS2 in RL

heh, yeah, that is a much nicer texture. I just took pictures of my PS2 and used those pictures...the dusty parts are the highlights of when I took the pictures. I would have used some nicer pictures from the internet, but I couldn't find any. BTW, where did you get your images from Kitty79? Now, If anyone wants to retexture the Controller.... its going to be a bit more difficult. The model I used was grouped as one model, not seperate ones, so I had to do some odd UV mapping to get it to work correctly.

Is there any chance that you can make a PS2 that stands up on it's side?

I think I used this image for the front. I can't remember where I found the top image. I just used Google image search for the images - man, it's easy to find PS2 pictures, very hard to find any that aren't at an angle. :confused: Mostly I just messed out with editing your own texture, removing the colours and using the new top and front.

I tried a new controller texture, but the result was so small it was hard to notice any real difference.

Ha Kitty79! I had that exact same photo stored in my "I might use these photos" folder, but never used it because I couldnt find any other angles. I just though that mine looked more realistic for some reason, but I definately like yours. If you could translate that into a recolor, I could post it on the first post and let people pick

Default sorry
i must admit that you have made some progress and if you could please e-mail how you made the texture work because it doesn't show in the SimPE preview which doesn't add up. p.s. i am working on a gamecube

Works perfect for me (with University). No conflicts with the original or the X-Box. And I hated Maxis' green game system. Thank you so much! I've been wanting a PS2 for my Sims.
