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 Moononsun, I have created a sculpture that can be used on the public phone for hiding it:



You can find it under Decorative/Sculpture (price:100 S)

For using it easily:
First put the sculpture (booth) on the floor and, then, include in it the community phone:


I think it works with all EP but I haven't got "Bon Voyage"
I hope you will like it and find a good use for this sculpture.

This is so ironic! I am uploading a lot right now with a London Style Phone Booth in it as we speak. I first saw cyclonesue's version of a London Style Booth using walls and decided to create my own version with advertisements inside it for my Harry Potter lots. Her version is a little too bright for me! So after I created these walls, YOU upload a London Style community phone cover! Pure GENIUS! I absolutely LOVE it. I will download it and add a link to your phone cover to my relevant Potter lots! TOO AWESOME!

Thanks for sharing this!

Creativity is giving the soul permission to leap beyond the boundaries of the ordinary!

I love it thankyou. It's just a shame that you dont see the real red phone boxes on the streets anymore :-( Mobile phones are killing our heritage!

Very cool! There are some lots where the ridiculous blue payphone just doesn't look right; this is a nice alternative.

Thanks a lot everybody!
I worked five days for creating it. First I thought to re-create a new phone box and after many attempts the new public phone didn't work properly in game...
And then I got the idea to just hide it under a sculpture!
It's not the object I wanted to do firstly but everyone can use it, without problems.
Enjoy!

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

Would have been alot better had it just depicted a receiver rather than unsimlish letters.
