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.
Hi all,

I've created this hand-held vacuum cleaner: the "Dust Buster"

Faces 184 Vertices 352

Performance: When using it, your sim wins "cleaning" points...
You can find it under Kitchen/small appliances Price:300

Hope you like it!

Feedbacks and Thanks are always appreciated

Why doesn't Maxis give us this stuff?

I agree with gnosisvampDan! You'd think Maxis would give us basic things like this, but NO-O-O!

I see a feature in your future. Ha. I'm betting this will be featured. I'D certainly feature it, if I were running MTS2.

Out of sheer curiosity, is it in any way based off the finger print scanner?

Does it actually clean? Ie, if there's trash on the floor, will it get sucked up? Or is it like the fingerprint scanner?

Either way, I like it. Very cute.

It is cloned from the fingerprint scanner and it has the same animation.

Sorry I can't take requests anymore!
And I will probably never convert my creations for TS2 to TS3.

This is really good alternative to Katy76's vacuum cleaner (I can't use it because I don't have OFB). Thank you
