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,

Here is my new object an outdoor "Lantern":

I think that maxis has forgotten to add such a useful outdoor wall lamp for base game!

I add also 3 recolors of it: green, metal and black with different glasses:

Each recolor can be used with the different glasses:

To find it: Lighting/Walllamp

I hope you will like this new Lantern!

Fabulous! Maxis/EA really didn't include any decent outdoor lighting. I've been using the Numenor wall light exclusively (love it,) but this will add some variety! Thanks so much!

I really love your light outdoor lantern.

Update: July 2009-I am back now to make invisible and tranparent recolors again in sims 2. You can pm me if you want your objects to be invisible and transparent from now.
Coffee, anyone?

I love it! I'm always looking for quality lighting. This will find a place in my game. Thank you for sharing.

I'm worried that my latest Salvation Army donation will result in homeless people looking like sluts from the 90s.

They are so elegant and yes I agree with EA not including lights such as these.
But we are so lucky to have a talented creator like you to make us such great things.
Thank You

Am I doing something wrong? I was able to download the mesh, but when I try to download the recolors, it says "the compressed (zipped) folder is invalid or corrupt".

Thanks to all those who download my houses and thanks to those who rate and/or thank. Your comments are greatly appreciated. Be sure to check out my other houses. :)

It's so pretty! It looks like a real porch lamp...I think Riverblossom Hills could use better lighting!
