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.
I tried this one in my game & there are no problems. At first I thought the flickering was a problem but, then I remembered that they are candles. They are EP ready & you can recolor them. I hope you like them. The are a little bit above 1000 on the polys & verts but, not by much.

I see that people have been having problems downloading my candles. I put them in a rar & a zip they were in a folder inside the zip. I'm not sure if that was the problem or, not but I took them out of the folder. I hope that fixed the problem. I downloaded them from the site to my computer at work & didn't have any problems so, I don't know what it could possibly be.

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

These sound really cool, but I almost passed on them! With the dark photo I couldn't really make them out at first and I thought the wall lamps were part of it or something? Any chance on a better photo to showcase the candlesticks? Thanks for sharing them with us!!

Sorry, I don't have WinRAR yet. Just have Winzip. Need to thrust myself out of the "stoneage", lol. Will probably have in about a week or so, keep checking back.

Default A problem
I too, have been unable to install the file with Sims2Pack Clean installer.

Error message is "Version required to extract this entry not supported (21)"

PS - Don't panic, it seems to be fine if the "candlesticks" folder is uncompressed first and put elsewhere (such as the desktop). Use WinRAR to open the download - then double click on the folder and extract the 5 package files only to a new folder on your desktop. After that the Installer no longer objects to any of the 5 packages if you point it to your new Desktop folder.

PPS - I suspect that the problem is that Kim has included the Thumbnails file in the Candlesticks folder.

Hope this helps

These are not showing up in my game. I also got an error message when extracting...are they working for anyone? I really like them!

Try manually extracting them. Just click on the folder and then on the candlestick folder inside and cut and paste into your download folder. p.s. don't cut and paste the thumbnail file.

Okay, try it now. I took out the Thumbs. I didn't realize that I had put it in there with the rest. Need to start double checking that stuff. Now why it's not showing up in your game though. I cloned it from the candles in the game & made sure it worked in mine. I hope they do, they should show up in the same place as the regular candles that came with the game. deco/ misc.

The look great but won't extract! I've tried everything, they are stuck in the zip file :o(

Manually open the zip file. Delete the thumbnail file if you have the original KimT uploaded. Then take the whole candlestick file that is in the zip and place it in your download folder. cut and paste. That should work.
