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.

Hello all!

Update: Fixed the reported problem of not being available on community lots.

Here (by special request) is a Prayer Candle Rack. It most commonly goes in a Catholic church. This has been the biggest project I have ever taken on, but I think it is well worth it! Unfortunately, the poly count is extremely high, so it is advised that this only be used on fast machines.

I would like to give a special thanks to cokenasmile for taking the time that she did to cut the poly count in half for me - Thanks!!

You shouldn't need an Expansion Packs for this to work.

Now, what is pretty cool, I think, is that this produces it's own light! Additionally, you never have to turn it on because the candles are always lit.

WARNING: Extremely High Poly Count! Suggested to be used by powerful machines, only!

7584 Faces
10294 Vertices

Recolors are fine, just link back.


Update: I've added the texture map (W4ECandleMap.rar) into the download to make this easier to be recolored. I didn't make this in subsets, so the recolors will have to be made for whatever combination you want.

The UV Map is NOT REQUIRED for the rack to work! It is simply there for recolor convienence!

Great candles for Catholic churches. I am afraid to download this because of your warning of high poly count.

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.

This is wonderful, I have been wanting one of these for so long. The only time I tried making a candle it didn't work and I never botherd again. Thank you for making this. As for the poly count, maybe you should have made it a single tile object, only that and you would have had about half the polys.

It's very pretty, but I won't be downloading, as I don't have a church to place it in... yet...

Contemplating making Golden Sun stuff for TS2.

That polycount does sound high. But then again some of the cars that were on here earlier in the year were as high as 35,000+! I had to can some of them for that reason.

The poly count is still high, but it's a beeeeautiful candle rack, Worship! And it even lights up! Cars often have a similar poly count so I'm gonna download and cross my fingers. Thank you! :D

LOVE IT!!! But I was wondering if could make the rack and stand different colors? Like black, wight, and silver? And could your also make recol.ores for the candles, like red, and black? And if you are REALLY talented, could you make the candles, and the little rack holding the candles, supported by the stand, movable, so you could place it on any coffee table, or counter?

wow you got featured! At last! Congratulations Your long time working on meshing has paid off Anyway, this looks great! A suggesion for the poly's: you couldve made a single tile candle rack and made it exactly one tile wide by cloning a counter to see how wide you have to make it, then make them connectable so that the poly count is lower, and size is more customizable Good work!

Poly count recommendation is per tile, so a sofa can reasonably have more count than a loveseat, and a loveseat more than a chair. This isn't really all that bad, and for a decorative item this complex, it's more reasonable than many files here. I love it. Thank you.
