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.

UPDATE NUMERO UNO: Ok, I went in and did as todd said, so now the PS2 shoud no longer be green. Tell me if it fixes it, because I have no way of testing it since mine never had the problem in the first place
Oh yes, and I went and and added new cataloge text
Download the new package files below and be sure that they REPLACE the original ones.
One more thing, if you feel the need to download the PS2, but are worried about the controllers conflicting with the Xbox controllers, they shouldn't. todd has added specific instructions telling his Xbox to only to load this controllers with a specific GUID. (Btw, todd if you could post or PM instructions on exactly how you did that I would greatly appreciate it.) But anyways,no worries about that.

UPDATE NUMERO DOS: Major props go out to raquelcesar who graciously made the controllers independent to the PS2 Make sure you download the new package below and replace both files. You're original Maxis controllers should also return to there original state

Alright, heres what all of you have begged for since the Xbox

Credit goes to:
Deathfox for the mesh
Mehself for the texture
3dcafe for the controller mesh (Which I edited up a little)

One problem though. The controllers are replacing the original Maxis controllers . When I replaced the GUID for the controllers, they weren't showing up, so I had to keep the original which overwrites the originial controllers. I believe the Xbox had this problem at first and didn't know how to get around it. They did indeed fix it, but I dont know how. If anyone could so kindly outline the steps to get the PS2 to only recongnize the PS2 Controllers I would greatly apprieciate it as my next project is a Gamecube.

Thanks guys :D

Thanks. I don't care about the controller thing anyway. I like PS2 better than X-Box anyway. Plus after the controllers were "fixed" for the X-Box, they completely disappeared and now they play with invisible controllers.

Thanks for the object! I'll wait for the controller fix though. The X-Box works perfectly in my game, the controllers show up and work just fine.

lol, I think i mabye could make them function as earrings or something, but that would make your sim wear the headset all the time Thats a very good idea though.... definate possibilies. I'll get back to you on that

I would assume so. I made it with the latest version of SimPE, so its probably not an issue. Does anyone know what specifically has to be the different/changed for it to be compatible with the new expansion pack arrives?

I didn't notice any problem. Is the problem only if you have both the X-Box and basinette in the same house? Now that I think about it, the conrtollers disappeared right after I downloaded the basinette...

I just tried it out (I LOVE it) and the only problem is that it appears to be green. Both the console and controllers, and the icon for it appear as though it has a semi-transparent green layer over the top of it (I opened it up in SimPE and saw the textures as they are meant to appear).

Ummm, they do - and you can edit your previous post rather than creating a whole new one back to back.

I totally forgot I downloaded this until I was decorating my house - it looks REALLY good in the game! Thank you for sharing. Did you use SimPE .17?
