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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
There were ceiling fans in the Sims 1, why aren't any in the Sims 2? Well know there is one! I made this in a day believe it or not. It took a long time though. This is my second object and i like it! The lights did not come out the way i wanted but its fine. Well please download and rate well. Enjoy! If there are any problems or you need any help please tell me. Have a great day and stick around for new objects by me! Enjoy the nice breese as you sims go through the summer! (Sorry Fan does not move/animate) Have fun!

does anyone else remember some of the first mentions and screenshots of TS2? they showed a toddler hanging off of a ceiling fan. hmmm... wonder where it went? maybe the toddler broke the only one they had. darn destructive kids. :D

My results:

I got the lights, but not the blades. (Also the lights didn't come on when I clicked on them to turn them on, unless they were next to a wall. Which may be my display settings. Just passing it along in case anybody else has the same thing happen.)

Thanks Sim Master 2. Well aquariumcleaner there were no complaints so far or problems. Sorry about that. I don't know what went wrong with your fan. Maybe try deleting the file in the Downloads folder and download the fan again and then put it in. To like refresh or something.Hope that works. Thankyou everyone for your wonderful replies.

You use WinRAR to uncompress the files into your My Docs/Ea Games/Sims 2/Downloads
Mesh is the basic form of the new object, think wire-frame, which a texture is then placed over making the object complete
EP ready means it cause no problems when used with University installed

just to add to the mesh question because i am a termenolegy junky. am mesh is the basis in which we see 3d models. this is the only way to use the x,y and z axes at the same time. another way of seeing this is to emagin our body with out skin and muscle.

Useruser, you're right. if you scroll in too far they become invisible so you don't keep clicking on the fan instead of something below it.

Have you managed to animate this fan ?
Or are you in a good way of animate it ?
