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,


As requested by mako94, I have created a security camera and a Control monitor:


They are just decorative items (Decorative/Sculpture)

The monitor is animated:



Thanks to JWoods for his great tutorial which helped me a lot to create it.

Good job maylin, I think I'll use the monitor as a non-addictive fake computer in my game.
Thank you

You know a site allowing re-upload of free build/buy stuff in lots ? Help us to update the list !

Thanks...too cute. I have the other security cameras...but this adds realism to them.
Perhaps one day...someone will figure out how to allow us to "really" visualize who is at the front/back door of the Sim(s) in question.

This would be a very good mod!

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

Does this work as a security device, and if not, would you be able to create another one like this as a security alarm? Thanks. Great work.

Sorry, but the camera can't work as security alarm (the Maxis one can't be cloned)

I tried several times without success. If you are able to do it, you can PM me.

Hi and thank you for these wonderful meshes! There is just one thing I'm wondering; Could you create a new mesh with the same security camera but just the half of the size right now? In some places the camera is too big... Could you make it? Thanks anyway!
