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.
The sled lights are from the xmas pack I dont know if thats required but basically the lights that came with the xmas pack can not be placed over windows this kinda breaks up the lights and you cant really decorate fully around the house with these newer longer sled lights they can be placed over the windows , and they are longer which makes it easier to decorate, as there arent as many pieces to place.

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

Finally! Thank you so much for making this! It very much needed. I wanted to put the lights up to decorate over the windows but they wouldn't go there, so that was disappointing. It makes me happy that you made them longer and that we are able to place them over windows. It just makes decorating so much more easy and it also looks more realistic. Thanks for the belated Christmas present, and for sharing it DBCAB! :bandit:

Thanks very much. This is how Maxis SHOULD have done those lights.

If anyone hasn't yet obtained them, go to the exchange and get them. Also get the other items that Maxis gave out for Christmas Decor. (URL has already been posted.)

Great job, but everytime I try to decorate a house with lights my computer gets slower than a turtle!

Rather belatedly, I love the idea, but I notice this is only the red and green lights, whereas of the three colors the red-green combination is the only one I never have any use for, whereas I love the white and multicolored versions. Any plans to make the other two colors in this format as well?

This was a great idea. Unfortunately I noticed that, at night, only the center part of these lights actually light up, not the left and right pieces that you added... Any way to fix that problem?
