I can not believe this hasn't been done before. Looking through MTS's music downloads, there are very few new pianos. There are a couple keyboards and a bunch of recolors, but very few new good looking pianos. I much prefer to give my sims a piano rather than give them a guitar or a bass, but I'm so tired of that awful redish antiquey salon piano. It looks nothing like what I grew up with. I want to give my sims my mom's piano, the one she played Fur Elise on and music from Star Trek, and the one where I struggled with my scales and later Greensleeves. That's a piano to me. This upload is dedicated to my mom. We'd been moving around a lot lately so we put the piano in storage and she has been without it for a year and a half now. Luckily, it's been scheduled to be brought home again.

The Daughters of Chimeway Upright Piano comes in a lovely Oak wood, but also is available in Walnut, Cherry, and an Ebony finish. It can be yours for the fair price of $2,500, coming in under the original by a thousand dollars.

Polygon Counts:
FaceCount: 1735
VertexCount: 2633

For reference, the Maxis piano is 3210/4220. For a four tile object, that's still within normal limits, but it's still a lot! My simplified version is half of Maxis.

Known Issues:
Because of how much shorter my mesh is, the tuning animation is a little weirder. See pic below. I don't find it to be too much of a problem because tuning isn't the main animation, so it doesn't get called all that often.

Additional Credits:
Creds to Frances Midlock, a LaFiesta Tech student turned Piano Virtuoso. And to Ninika for her outfit.

Thanks Mom for everything! You are my best friend and I know how much you love your piano, hopefully some of my simmies will feel the same about their new pianos, Frances does!
