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.
*************COLOUR ENABLED***************

Finally, thanks to Numenor, I have finally worked out the colour enabling!!! ..so here is the revised file...now available in 'smokey' black

The new zip file contains both files and will overwrite your original file if you downloaded before... :howdy:


Hi Guys

Wondered if you would test this for me?

It has been made with SimPE v0.18 so IS Expansion Pack Ready, ...and NOW COLOUR ENABLED!!

It can be found in Electronics/entertainment (or General Miscellaneous) and in Outside.

I've kept it quite low polygon (so not to slow your machine down) which gives the dish a slight 'flower-like' appearence...but I quite like that, so I left it as it was.

Because if the size of it, I've also made it disappear with the walls down (otherwise you might miss something happening inside the house) but I think it looks Ok for external shots with the walls and roof on. (You can sometimes get it to stick to the edge of a roof...but that can be a bit tricky because you really need a 'wall' for it to stick to ..)

Anyhow, let me know if there are any problems...and thanks for testing.

Big thanks as usual to Loverat, Numenor, RGiles etc, ect and everyone at MTS2 for great tutorials and of course to all the guys at SimPE ... (any chance of updating the new Recolour Wizard to include custom made objects???...that wizard is GREAT for recolouring game objects... one for 'home made' ones would be the ultimate gift for me!! :howdy: )

take care

BobL

Looks great. I'll test it ingame and report any bug if found. And who would want to recolor a satdish anyway? They all look the same

This is way cool! And don't stress too much about recolors - who has ever seen a satellite dish in any color other than gray or white anyway?

My husband was just saying how my sims needed a dish.
I think he ment the sort that sits on the ground though. He will have to be happy with what he gets...and besides, they are my sims and are very happy with this!
