This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
This is a recolour for MogHughson's Illuminated Shop Sign. I made a street of shops with flats above them and was running out of ideas for shops, so I decided to download the Postal System, and then of course I needed a Post Office, and a Post Office sign!

This is based on Royal Mail's current sign design for UK Post Offices, seen everywhere all over the UK. I have made both English and Simlish versions, each as a separate download. I have included pictures of both versions in their lit and unlit states.

English version

Simlish version

Real life sign I based this on

I hope you enjoy my first upload

Additional Credits:
Thanks to MogHughson for the original sign and the inspiration for the Post Office.

Thanks to Numenor's excellent object recoloring tutorial, and the creators of SimPE of course.

Thanks to simale for the Simlish font.

Post office logo belongs to Royal Mail.

Ooo, this is inspirational. I use Mog's postal system too, but I never thought of making a post office. Thanks for this great sign!
