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.

Watching for those shoplifters...Alf "Crash Test" Dummy models SimSecs' 33 1/3 Security Desk.

The CCTV screens change views every few seconds or so, cycling through each of the smaller screens onto the big one. It doesn't go 'beep' although i would have liked it to. Sometimes a green light turns red. Do not panic.

Donor was the intitutional dining table, because it was big. Sims won't eat off this one though. Nor can they place anything on it. (I couldn't stop Alf putting stuff out of sight under the console, so it was better to stop anything at all being put on it)

Unfortunately because of the shape, Sims coming around the end of the desk to sit in the chair tend to walk through the very end corners. Careful placement will stop that. Against a wall for instance, or perhaps put a half wall in front. Or a potplant.

It can be found in:

Residential: Electronics >> TV & Computer
Community: Misc Electronics

It is very easy to change the CCTV images for your own. Rather than recolor, change the ones in this package. Take some pics of the view you want to present, use the thumbnails, convert to black and white, then extract the 'lights' TXTR image and line your own images up over the top of the ones already in there, import (DXT if you can) and save.

Do not redistribute without the original images. If you modify this and provide it for general use, link back here. No pay sites.

Wow, now I wish I could skin. If one set it up to look like multiple monitors/PC&Mac one would have a cool tech-support/programmer's station.

It doesn't have to be black and white. I just used B&W because I have never seen a CCTV in colour anywhere lol.'s there for anyone to do with what they like

Thanks for your reply. darylmarkloc
lol, The reason I asked if its possible to have coloured images is b'cos b&w images doesn't show up that well during gameplay but coloured images would.
anyway, thanks for answering my query!

Very nice! I like it very much I'm using it in this one laboratory themed house that I made to give a kind of "ultra-top secret" feel. Very, very cool!

(Now, all I've got to find is an animated reel-to-reel and I'm all set...)

Great, I have a sim who will be using this very soon :D
