High End TV Set

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.
In the creation chat, Cherry92 spawned a creative idea on combining a TV stand with a bookshelf.. and, luckily enough.. I was able to complete the task! So here you have it! A bookshelf and TV combined.. but not literally.

Update 7/2/12: The TV seemed to levitate above the surface of the shelf, and I didn't even notice that! I apologize! The TV has now been updated and no longer levitates. ETA: Wow. Well, I updated it again because the main slot wasn't working. Also, I updated the incorrect footprint. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Update 6/24/12: Okay. I updated the TV so now it is no longer floating! I also added a slot to the middle of the main shelf; that's where the TV needs to be placed. You can now place the TV not only on the surface of the shelf, but anywhere else that accepts Large slotted objects.

You need the Late Night patch or higher for these to work. You do not need the expansion pack

These are two separate meshes! (See placement instructions below)






Recolorable Channels:
HE TV Stand/Bookshelf: 1)Outline, 2) Other Outline, 3) Base, 4) Back of Shelf
HE TV: 1)Mount, 2)Legs, 3)TV Outline



Fun Note: Yes, the TV Stand is a bookshelf! You are able to add any books to the shelf. The shelf also has 23 slots for you to place decorative objects on!

Placement Instructions
To be able to place the TV on the shelf, restrain from adding objects on the main shelf until you have added the TV. If you have trouble placing objects next to the TV, try activating "moveobjects on"

Found Under:
HE TV Stand: Misc Storage, Misc Surfaces, Study
HE TV: Living, Electronics, Entertainment

Pricing:
HE TV Stand: $256
HE TV: $200

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

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.

You need the Late Night patch, but that's it. I forgot to specify that in the main thread lol.

ETA: It's actually a Late Night bookshelf. Thanks Tccool

You don't have to use it If there are other TV's out there that are specified as "Large" in the placement flags, (which usually they are) it will work as well!
