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 haven't seen one of these around lately so i thought i would make one for the community

It is cloned from the boom box so I'm guessing its Base Game compatible, NO EP'S required.

It is found under "Electronics" and "Audio".

So do your Sims have dreams of reliving the past and boogieing down to some 1930 classics? Ever wanted to own something from way back even when your granny wasn't born? Well now you can with the "Ye Old" 1931 gramophone.

Feel free to recolor!

You can tamper with this mesh and make whatever crazy contraption JUST GIVE ME CREDIT and don't claim my work as your own.


Kind Regards

Nice one Trav! You've come a long way since your first objects. Looks very good!

I've never been married, but I tell people I'm divorced so they won't think something is wrong with me.

Aw, damn. I was so excited about this but when I downloaded it and tried to load my game, it would freeze. So I tried removing it, and then my game worked fine.

Thats rather odd to say the least because it works perfect in my game. Does anyone else have this prob?

Well the boombox did come with the base game so NO EP's should be required, i can't see why its crashing your game.

Like Pandora, I have a Victorian family. Though this isn't exactly in that period, it would be fun to make it so and see them dancin!

I love this object, but like Peligro and Cyndisim, it kept my game from loading as well. I have base, NL, Uni, Familyfunstuff and Glamour life. I hope you can figure it out because I would love to have this work in my game!!
Thanks again! I'll be checking to see if someone figures it out. Wish I could help!

I had no problems with it in my game (I have all EPs and SPs). It just gave me a weird recolour of the basic boombox aswell lol.
