This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text 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.
IMPORTANT: in order to use these recolours, you must download the main MESH package that can be found in this thread

In addition to the standard dark brown and white recolours that came with the main mesh package, I've created the following recolours:

- Black metal frame
- Green metal frame
- Green glass
- Rusty metal + Cracked glass

You can create your own recolours for this lamp, using Object Workshop (mind that the glass is textureless and can be recoloured only by editing the Material Definition parameters).

Please post in this thread all your recolours for the Outdoor Lamp.
Style: Retro
Room: Outdoor
Maxis Flags: Not Applicable

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

The original rusted frame (the one taken from the Buckaroo fence lamp) is already in the main mesh package.

The default colour is a rusty dark brown: if look at the lamp closely (or if you open the package and look at the texture for the "frame" ), you'll notice the rust covering it.
I know, the colour is quite dark, and the rust is not that visible. Maybe, we can create a more "worn" texture to go with the Trashy set...

OK, what you think of this?

It's so old and worn that the rust has actually carved some holes in the metal frame! And the glass isn't brand new, either...
The package containing the rusty frame and the broken glass (together) can be downloaded from post #1.

I've finally started my Journal. Information only, no questions.

Because the downloads server is already overwhelmed by the requests and has a limited space, so doubling the attachments it's absolutely not a good idea...
And anyway rar is one of the most popular archive formats, I'm sure you won't have difficulties in finding a program that can handle them.

Nifty. I especially like the black one. And I know the rusty one will see some use in themed homes, as well

Thank you.
