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.
One of the things that detracts from our two storey open spaces is the lighting. We can put in ceiling lights on the floor level which hang magically half way down our room, or put them on the 2nd level and the lower half of the room is all gloom.

No more.

This light goes on the ground floor and hangs from the ceiling a floor above, lighting the WHOLE space, ceiling to floor.

The light fixture has a quirk..it will disappear once installed unless you are in lower floor mode. This is because the game treats it as an object belonging to the floor, not the ceiling and still regards a 2 floor open space as being just that, two floors. Nevertheless, the light it creates remains...

It shows up in my pics because of the way I built that space - it has no walls where the windows are placed, so the game does not treat it as a room.

This one began life as a street light, but I modified the BHAV's so that it is treated by the game as an indoor ceiling light.

It can be found under Buy >> Room Lighting

I'm throwing this one open to anyone who wants to tweak it. I think plenty of people would like variety in their lights and this works fine for a kludge, but it needs developement, I feel. Just give me a credit if you do modify, improve, change.

Mar 4 - Noticed that when Gunmods Radiance Lighting is intsalled, this light stops working. When there is a fix found for this, I'll update. Meanwhile, just be aware that this problem exits.

Thank you
