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.
While reworking my transceiver, in the course of work this object somehow was created as a surplus-object, grin.

Another oldfashioned radio, this time from about the 1940s and of course working. Comes with german and english (us & uk) catalog description. The object was generated with SimPE .15 and thus should be EP compatible. It contains only one mesh and so CEP recolor should also be possible.

I guess that was it with old-time-radios (enough there now), I think the next thing to do could be an Amiga 500 to replace the boring standard ingame-PCs. :o) We will see... :o)

Have fun! :howdy:

You are indeed filling a niche, and quite well, I might add.

On your other subject:

I would love to see an A500! Pair it with a Commodore 1084S monitor, and replace SSX with Speedball or James Pond 2: Robocod, and you will have captured true Amiga perfection.

Very nice looking radio. I downloaded your other old timer too. This'll give some variety to my decor.

This is a great radio and will go really nicely in a couple of my houses.

On the other subject, if you could actually do an A500 that would be soooo awesome. I must have owned a dozen of those in my day.

Never try to teach a pig to sing. It wastes your time and annoys the pig.

Can anyone tell me if this is EP ready as I believe it was created before the new EP....I really love this radio and had it in my game before the EP!
