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.
Christmas Decoration Lighting

by xts


This object was cloned from the Romantic Romance Candle Lighting by Elle and Eey. (If I remember the exact names correctly) **NightLife Required**

Aside from the destroyed version (the smashed one for when a sim breaks it) (unedited), the counts are as follows:

NEW MESH COUNTS:
model name facets vertex

groundlightpattern 2 4
flame 20 250
votive 942 1028
glass 1171 1270
metal 608 626

Total: 2743 3178


Now if you know counts, you'll see that the counts are kinda high. If I didn't decorate it the way I did, it would've looked very drab. It's a good object though so I'm uploading for those who don't mind, like me. I created it for my game (like nearly all my objects) but I think others might enjoy it.

CEP3 CLONE (object is colour-enabled thanks to the CEP3).


Animation:The lights next to the doors light up slightly, the lights around the ice blink and the ones on the tree flash colorfully like a real tree and they don't blink at the same time. :D

Note:Otherwise primarily decorative lighting for the holiday Season. There is a church and a house here so if you are not Christ believing and don't like it, don't get it If it doesn't bother you that it has a cross, you should find it pleasing for your sims' homes.

I dedicate this set to Jesus. Besides, isn't that why we have Christmas? I've been trying to dedicate each piece to someone whom I'm fond of.

This item will show up with a asterisk under lighting, not decorative. Table top lighting to be exact.


Lights On (clear view, well lit)


Lights On While Dark

NOTE: There should be no problems but if there are, please post your problem here so we can know what it's doing. Thank you Hope you guys like it.
If I could have done this set with a base object, I would have but could not find a suitable base game object to clone so it had to be NightLife Required. Sorry about that.


EDIT: With given credits to xts and link back here and keep it free, you can upload this within a lot, recolor it or share it. But I am not stating that recoloring this object will be easy.. Fair warning. The votive part is recolorable. The flame as well, if I remember right. Best of luck if you do decide to recolor it. The roof is considered metal and cannot be recolored.
Style:

That's absolutely amazing!

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved." - John 3:16-17

Thank you MaryAnneDerEsel!
I was a bit disappointed in the texture but I must admit it was a bugger!!!!!!!
To be honest, I'm not 100% satisfied with it but.... I must admit I also didn't think I could get as far as I did with it. It's from that tiny candle set lol..
Sorry it's not the best but thank you for liking it

Hope your sims enjoy it. It does light up and if you turn off all lights int he room but it, it looks pretty neat at night

Happy Simmin'!

I love it,it's a master piece,but uh...Jesus was just a peasant and his "birthday" is on July 2nd.

Yes,Trace may be a Tattoo Canvas,Mason may look like a girl,Anthony might be too small,and Blake may not be too cool...

But Trace's tat's are HOT.Mason is a HILARIOUS person.Anthony is ADORABLE.And Blake is the CUTEST nerd you'll ever meet.

I so love this! When I was younger my grandparents had the little people set with Christmas and this reminds me of that. Thank you for making it and bringing back some fond memories.

It's thought to be somewhere between April and July cause of the descriptions of the sheep grazing and you kinda can't do that with frozen ground/grass and all.

You're very welcome! I'm glad you guys like it! If I would've been an animation guru I wanted the guy to skate around on the ice..

I've often wondered about the seasons for Jesus also but since it was 2000 years ago it makes it kind of hard. I know the seasons alternate around the world somewhat & that warm climates may have once been alot colder.. Rivers once flowed where they don't now, mountains have grown, etc. They mention the star, the brightest star in the sky. Some argue that was a planet. There are programs you can use to see the constellation during the year 2000 but how do we know about the calendar days being accurate. I've heard there are 30 some years removed from the calendar by a king who did not acknowledge Jesus. (hearsay so I'm not sure how true it is).

Thanks again!! Happy Simmin'!
Xts

PS. To me, Jesus was much more than a peasant
