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.

I think many of you enjoy the Home Cinema experience. But...What about yours sims?

- Speakers are DECORATIVES items. They improve the environment average while yours sims are watching TV (by example). To find them in your catalog, go to: Decoratives / Sculptures (500§ / item).
- TV and Amplifier+DVD are still electronics items. Amplifier is with the Audio items of your catalog.
- To put the Center Speaker correctly (upside the TV), use the "Moveobjects on" cheat (ctrl+shift+C).

Here is an installation example, but I'm sure you'll find other way to use these items ...

Have fun!

Wow, these look amazing, I have a JBL Home Audio System myself but is way more powerfull :-p And is using Harman/Kardon amplifier, I'm really thankful that now my sims can enjoy the full benefits of a JBL quality. I have to ask which model you used for the tower speakers and the subwoofer, cause I haven't seen such JBL subwoofer, but I have a memory of seeing those towers somewhere.

But somebody did care about making this download for you.

Update: July 2009-I am back now to make invisible and tranparent recolors again in sims 2. You can pm me if you want your objects to be invisible and transparent from now.
