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.
This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Hi everybody,

Hey, I have created this TV :

Faces 2624 Vertices 1799

In a children bedroom, it could be amusing and decorative...



* You can recolour my mesh but please, keep your work free and link back to this post for the original mesh.

Eh. Who'd be daft enough to put a TV in a sim bedroom? I want to see an R2D2 *trashcan*. You can just imagine the scene, a squad of stormtroopers walks by, one of then stomps on his foot and tosses a gum wrapper in.

Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I cannot accept, and the wisdom to hide the bodies of those I had to kill because they pissed me off.

Excellent job!

I guess I am daft as I put tv's in sims bedrooms.

I've been doing it more ever since I discovered that Sims can watch TV from their beds. I forsee lots of Sim children putting off their homework as a result of having this TV in their rooms! Excellent job. Very creative.

Well deserved, too. Can't wait to get it into the kids' rooms.

What a brilliant job! - mind you I still think that 'R2' would make a better 'Mini-Fridge' for wine & beer, rather than a kid's telly!...

Thanks, my Sims will love it! - now can I have one in 'Real Life' too?.

To all, of the very talented MTS-2 creative types - my sincere thanks for taking the time to create/upload/share...
