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.

These are a couple of magical items converted from Apartment Life, so your magical Sims won't feel so left out!

This does not add magic in the game, it only allows you to use the items as they are: this means lights can be turned on and off (and illuminate the room), the two chairs can be sat on. The cauldron, Mystic Dust and Crystal Ball are decorative only.

This does not add magic, these are purely decorative non functional objects. The chairs you can sit on, and the lights you can turn on and off, that's all.

The objects are fully recolourable. Although because of limitations in custom recolours at the moment, the objects come with slightly off default patterns, so it's best to choose your own recolour!

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

The evil throne was my favourite in AL. And now the Dark Lord of Sunset Valley will have something to sit on...

Yesterday is history,
Tomorrow is a mystery,
Today is a gift, that is why
We call it the Present.
