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.

Hi Guys,
Would you test this for me please?
Made with Milkshape, UVMapper and SimPE 0.38. It has its own unique (registered) GUID, is EP ready (not required) and is colour enabled.
Ploygon Count: 346 (= VERY low)

This is my first object made using SimPE v0.38(which now has a new way to import/export meshes, and so the Mesh Tool is no longer part of the process).
It took me a few attempts to understand it...but I finally got there.... :smash: .... consequently, I went for a simple design object (so I'm not expecting five stars, - though that would be nice! ).

I am trying to concentrate on LOW polygon items, whilst retaining as much 'smoothness' and detail as possible, which I think this manages to do reasonably well. :confused:

This is an Art Deco style clock, available in six flavours. Available in Plain Black Bakalite (default colour) , Plain White (Plastic), Mahogany, Teak, White Marble and Black Marble. (see pics).

It can be placed in all the 'usual' places...but...and this is why I made can be placed on any Fireplace Mantlepiece without using any cheats. (This is because it is cloned from one of Maxis's 'special' objects that will go on the fireplace mantles.)

It can be found in Decorative / All. It is purely decorative. Price = 97 simoleons

It does not have any interactions (because it's cloned from the small glass vase)...and, guess what...the clock doesn't work. (Well, it does tell the exact time twice a day!). However, because it hasn't got any interactions (your sims won't even look at it) I have given it some extra 'room' points (8), and kept it down in price!

Please report any issues, and thanks for testing



Recolours: (As with all my objects,) please DO NOT post any files that contain my original mesh.
You are free to post your recolour files (preferably here, in the recolours section). Please pm before posting recolours....I always reply!.. as I love to see what you recolour artists can do with my stuff!

LOTS: Please do NOT include this (or any other of my objects) in any LOT uploads. These are BETA objects, here for testing, and not yet ready to 'inflict' on an unsuspecting LOT downloader.

Cute! Years a go I had one that looked a lot like that. Being stuck with on-board graphics, I for one appreciate and love all your low poly objects. I can put a ton of them in my houses and have no slow down what so ever. Thank you!

Thanks for this boblishman, looks good. I have tried it in my game but one question can it be adjusted for British summer time as I find mine is exactly an hour slow twice a day. Nice one :-)
