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.
Electrical Outlets- Low and High


What does every sim home need? Why electrical outlets of course! No home would be complete without them. So I bring you my very first meshes so that your sim's homes can now be complete with electrical outlets for all your simmies electrical needs. These items are purely for decorational reasons and have no functions other than for your sim to view them.

There are two meshes. The main mesh is for low on walls and the high mesh is for above counters in kitchens or bathrooms or just where ever you would like a higher outlet.

The high mesh needs the main mesh in order to work properly and have the recolors. So please don't just install the high mesh into your game as it will have no textures or recolors.

These were cloned from the china mask in the original game therefore they should need no expansion packs to show up. They are CEP enabled and will work with expansion packs. This item was tested in my own game and I have all expansions installed except Pets. If these don't work with Pets, please let me know.

You can find both objects in electronics>small electronics (even though they are only decorational items).

Main mesh- Facets=634 and Vertices=1480
High mesh- Facets=634 and Vertices=1480

Please do not clone, modify, recolor or upload to any sites (free or pay) without my permission. You may include the meshes in lots uploaded here to MTS2.

I made these meshes from scratch using Blender and UVMapper. I also used SimPE and Paint Shop Pro 8. I'd like to thank the makers of SimPE for making this very useful program to allow creators to make new objects.

I hope you like my meshes!

Both of your outlets look great.

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.

I have light switches in my game but can't remember where I got them from. They are neat because they turn all the lights on or off for a room.

Thanks so mcuh, they look great! Ive been looking and waiting for outlet for ever. I am also looking for switches, it would be great if you could make those. I know sims resource has both swithces, and outlets, but im on a free accont, and am to impatient to wait if they ever go free

I can try to make a mesh for light switches. It took me about a week and a half to do this mesh (of course this was my first mesh) and I also want to do a floor version and versions that sit on the left and right sides of the walls of the outlet. Plus am working on British and Aus versions but they won't be completed until SimPE for Pets is out as I now have Pets installed.

I also thought about a combination light switch and outlet.

I made this in the first place because I too had searched all over and couldn't find an electrical outlet I liked. There is another one here on MTS2 I believe but I don't think I've ever seen one on TSR and I am a paid member there. I have wanted to get into meshing for a long time but never found a good project to start with until this. I had decided if I couldn't find it, I was going to try to make it. I think it turned out pretty good for a first mesh.

I never hear of British and Austrailian versions before. How are they different from these mesh electric outlets here?

The prongs are different.

Haven't really gotten anything accomplished the last couple weeks as I haven't felt well at all.

** Pssst... These are great.... I love clutter and the little things like this I also had the switches talked about above... I think they were from TSR by toddfx, but they're on pay at the mo
Eric from insim has some too, with a wall dimmer... tres kewl! However, I love these too, cos I love to have different switches and diff decor in houses, so they are much appreciated! Thank you for sharing!

If at first you DO succeed, try not to look so astonished!

Thank you so much for these! Will check back, because I look forward to the light switches too. I just want decorative ones, I'm fine with the maxis lighting. :D
