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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This is the first set I have created using my new computer! I hope you find the graphic quality of my in game shots is much better. Enjoy!

My Virgin Mobile Store Set was inspired by Atavera’s Virgin Neon Sign that is shown in my thumbnail photo(to find it view the comments in this post) and the iPhone and Nokia replacement cell phones found on MTS2 by various creators (listed below in the thanks section).

I have included 3 recolor’s



two posters and



the electronic vending kiosk

and two new mesh files:



glass display counters with cell phones



and a cell phone box in two styles - Nokia 6300 and iPhone - for your cellular store shelves.


Expansions required include Nightlife (only if you choose to download Atavera’s Neon Sign from the link above) and Seasons. For the posters and Maxis matching display counters you will need the H&M stuff pack.

**Please note, this does NOT replace any cell phone in your game as no cell phone is included. It only has a recolor of your original cell phone kiosk. The cell phones included in the counter are decor only!

Please leave some feedback! I love to read them!


Polygon Counts:
Cellular Glass Display Counter – straight 1550
Cellular Glass Display Counter – corner 1657
Cell Phone Box 14

Additional Credits:
Big Thanks to Hysterical Paroxysm for critiquing my screenshots prior to uploading!

Thanks goes to Atavera for the sign creations, nokiaman12159 for all the Nokia replacement phones, Bino Maus and Fred Spider for the iPhone replacement phones. Each one inspired me to create my Virgin Mobile Store Set.

Thanks also goes to Numenor for the color enabler pack, the makers of SimPE, Delphy and the MTS2 staff – without all of these wonderful people I would still be stuck wishing for cool items!

Thanks for pointing that out cth328. I don't actually own a cell phone and have never gone into a Virgin Mobile store. LOL. But the iPhone that was created for the game looked sooo cool I couldn't resist. Glad you like it!

dnog86 - send me pics of your mall! I love to see how my work is used! thanks for the compliments.

catstale48 - your welcome!

yeah I know...dunno why it keeps showing up on my upload...I didn't have it marked so I dunno why it is doing that. When I view the post itself it doesn't show up - only in list view in the download area. Any ideas?

Briesetuts - the Kitchen & bath pack are not out yet. It is a mistake on the download screen due to the site updates from earlier today I think - should only need Seasons and H&M Fashion

That's OK, Sims aren't real people anyway (or are they? I need a reality check!) so they won't know the differnce!

I like the brilliant colors. You did a nice job, wndy! Thanks bunches!

Toxic Doll...sorry if I didn't get back to you soon enough...I was on hiatus... You can buy cell phones as long as you use the kiosks. Only the kiosks sell the cell phones which is why I recolored those as well.
