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.
Introducing, the 1950 Classical Piano:






I would like to dedicate this piece to people who have helped me to get where I am in meshing and just make my favorite website what it is:
Numenor
IgnorantBliss
LyricLee
HystericalParoxysm (hope i spelt it right :P)
JWoods
tigmomx4

This has been one of my best meshes, and Im very very proud of it. Hope you all like it too.

I couldnt get the Perform...../Rock/Country etc. to work I guess because I downloaded atavera's performing instrument hack but I didnt know what to do with it so im stuck.
Although you can still practise on it, my sim was practising and it still gives off lovely music (only without the tip ) ] But it looks great also as decor in any fancy restaurant or something! For the rich sims :D

I also added detail in every part of this piano. You won't see many plain cubes if you tried Even the legs were modified and look beautifully along with the piano.

One other awsome thing I did is that I added reflection to the piano! It looks great in the game

You can recolor
Do not modify the mesh please or upload recolors on other sites
And please do not upload this mesh to other sites or to this exchange, just the recolors.

I hope you all enjoy! And if it wasnt for the people I mentioned earlier, I would have never been able to make this piano

Thanks for this - I've been waiting for a good classic piano for my Sims. Do I sound greedy, I'd love to see this in white, too.

Anyway, Thank you, Thank you, for your hard work!

I'm happy to get a piano that is just for practice! I get tired of the tip jar coming out all the time, especially when a Sim lives alone, lol. This is an absolutely lovely piano, you did a wonderful job...thank you so much!

Awesome! I'm glad there's no tip jar, it's nice for a change to not have that constantly be pulling at all the sims and their visitors. If, at some point, you want to try adding that option again, offer it as a separate download for those who wish to give concerts

Thanks for this - it looks lovely in the game. For some reason I seem to be having a graphical glitch with it though. A black bar appears just above the piano (see picture). Am I the only one this is happening to? I have NL but not OFB.

no EPs are required since there is only a piano in the base game. Those are shadows. I remember deleting them. Send me your file that you have in your folder through a post after this.

Here it is. I re-compressed the file from my downloads folder but I only downloaded it from here today so it should be the same?
