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 based off of my real Sunbeam clock that I have on my wall. It is higher than the wall phone but lower than the fire alarm. There is clear plastic/glass between the frame and the face which gives it the illusion of a face just floating in the center. I added a glass subset to make it look closer to the real clock.

It goes nicely with my Ashley Cataline furniture set.

BobL's (aka boblishman) work on the School/Office Wall Clock made the functioning/time telling of this clock possible so big thanks to him!

Here is a collage of the fronts of the clocks as well as the backs. The main mesh file, quartz recolors, and wood recolors have the gray/silver back while the onyxgold2 and other darker recolors all have the black back.


The second image is a shot I got when my Sim decided to go see what the clock was when I first placed it. I decided to keep the shot because I thought it was cool.

Recolor/Distribution policy: Please feel free to recolor but also please let me know so that I can see the recolors, please do not upload the mesh without asking me first, do not upload to paysites as I want to be able to download recolors of it for free. You may upload this with lots but please let me know if you do so. I would love to see the clock in use.

Excellent work. Just posting a quick note here for those who play with testingcheatsenabled on:

For some reason, every time the clock hits 12:00 (midnight or noon) it will force an error on itself. If testingcheatsenabled is off, the game will handle the error automatically. if you play with the cheat on, it will pop up an error dialog. Strangely, the error is "Hit Break Point Primitive", which is the error message when you force an error on an object. If you get this error, just click "Reset". No, it won't harm the game.

It's not an issue that necessarily bothers me, but it's just something I wanted to point out.
