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 please?
Made with Milkshape, The Mesh Tool and SimPev0.42 it is colour enabled, EP ready (not required) and has its own GUID (no conflicts)

Polygon Count : 206 (=VERY low )

AT LAST!!...a WORKING (time telling) MANTLE clock!. (no chines/ticks or any other interaction..but it does tell the correct Sim time)

I've gone for a modern design (don't worry..I'll do a traditional one later)..with seven recolours. (The default is the one in the centre of the fireplace pic)

It can be found in Electronics/Small Electronics

It can be placed on all surfaces (Thanks Numenor!) including the mantle.

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! Remember to post a link back here for the original mesh
LOTS: Please do NOT include this (or any other of my objects) in any LOT uploads. These are (still) BETA objects, here for testing, and not yet ready to 'inflict' on an unsuspecting LOT downloader.

That is funky! I love the recolors! Thanks, Bob!

Have you considered making a clock radio? Add music to a telling-time clock? That would be cool for something on the night-stand.

bit too modernist for me I like the idea though but I'll wait for your next one (hopefully something a little more traditional) good luck and keep up the great work.

This is a great clock. Even if it didn't work it would look nice in a room (modern, that is). I hope it increases the environment points, because it really adds to it. Thanks.

I really like your work. I just have to ask, though - where did you get the clock that's hanging over the mantle in the first screenshot?

My "me" sim builds clocks and stuff, and I love all your clocks, they're ideal!
I have one question though... Where are the numbers? As in how do you know what time it's pointing at other than a relatively rough guess? O.o
Otherwiise... AWESOME!

What is it exactly that disgusts me about you? Don't worry about it.
