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.
Introducing the Palisade Tropical Ceiling Fan. Best when used with high ceilings, or by sims who know how to duck. But don't worry if they don't no harm will come to them. This stylish fan has only one speed, pretty slow, until we figure out how to modify animations. The fan defaults to not fading out,
but you can change that via the pie menu. The fan blades and metal can be recoloured separately. I've included a variety of blades and metal finishes for your enjoyment.

Unique Guid
Ep Ready(should not be required)

Poly Count
1248 (Maxis original 1618)

Cloned From
Dielectric Electrobreeze Windmill

Tools SimPE .39i (qa)
Milkshape Plugin 2.16

Recolour Information
The fan can be recoloured. The basic mesh contains the black blades and brass metal finish. I've included an archive for the blade recolours and an archive for the metal finishes.

Installation Instructions
Unzip and put in Download dir (or below)

Found in All rooms (but outside) - Appliances, Misc

As it uses alpha/beta tools, all my objects must be considered beta until otherwise stated.

Recolouring & Posting Policy
You may recolour as you desire. You may post your recolours, but you must not post the original mesh.

Provide a link to the original mesh where you post your recolour.

At this time do not include my objects in any posted house /lots.

I intend on it, but I think I'm going to need to pick Atavera's brain to do so.

SnowStorm, this is a beautiful object, and animation! In order for everyone to be able to appreciate it's quality here is a link to the real Palisade Tropical Ceiling Fan:

Edited to add: I also want to add that these fans retail between $1,000.00 - $3,000.00 US.
