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.

This is my first 'personal' release for some time. Basically, I have been working on the Retroville Collection ..and been on holiday.

Anyway, this is a 'by-product' of the Retroville set. It's a wall clock that tells the (Sim) time. (like the Grandfather clocks and the alarm clocks do.)

However, you don't have any annoying 'ticking' or chiming...and you don't need to keep winding it up. It comes with a 'life-long' battery


Made with Milkshape, The Mesh Tools and SimPE v.42 it is EP ready (not required), colour enabled and had its own (unique, registered) GUID so will not replace anything in your game.

The polygon count is a bit higher than I would have liked (1300) but (just) within guidedlines so shouldn't cause any problems.

Available in a range of colours (see screenshots)

It can be found in Electrical/Small Electronics

(be warned.... I LOVE working clocks...and now that I can make them for both walls and all surfaces...be prepared for a deluge of them!. All future releases will be VERY low polygon...)

Please report any issues, and thanks for testing

Bob


Recolours: (As with all my objects,) please DO NOT post any files that contain my original mesh (the default file).

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. Thanks.

bob - i won't be able to test this yet, but i'm curious as to how is this animated. does the hands move clockwise based on the actual Sim time?

i'm so glad that you're back from holiday! :D

Very cool! I wish you could make a rim around it too, so it looks like a real clock!

I had no idea! I've never paid attention to either clock, but with your clock I'm sure it will be more obvious since you've chosen big numbers. :D
