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.
I'm having a lot of fun making extra slots to unconventional things that really would make sense to have. Now I give you extra slots for all of the Maxis standing stereos. You can place anything that goes on coffee tables on these except for the one tile one which allows anything that goes on end tables. One thing you should note when placing slots is that you will have to align the objects that you want to go in the slots to the right some on the two tile things or they will overlap the other slot. I didn't know how to fix that problem, but if anyone who is more familiar with slots and everything than I, and inclined to give it a go on fixing it, I welcome that. These stereos are slaved to Maxis, and are non-default replacements. Please check the related pages tab. There you will find Maxis recolors of these particular stereos which will show up in these as well. Also in creator recommendations are my microwaves, toaster ovens, and toilets with extra slots for anyone interested. If you run into any problems, please let me know and I'll do my best to fix it.
  • What's Included - Base Game: One tile standing stereo, two tile standing stereo
    Nightlife: Jukebox

  • What's NOT included - Karaoke Machine and DJ Booths. I may upload those later in a separate upload.


  • If you have the base game, but not Nightlife, Glamour Life Stuff, or Freetime, you should download the Base Game file. If you have the base game, and Nightlife, but not Glamour Life Stuff or Freetime, you should download the Nightlife file. If you have the base game, and Freetime, but not Nightlife, or Glamour Life Stuff, you should download the Freetime file. If you have all 4, you should download all 4 files.

Oh my goodness ! Sims99Fanatic, are you sure with all this "Clutter" that you are not turning into a Hoarder? And you want our Sims to join you, I need to get some space and air it is a bit too crowded in here.

Great idea. Another one of those "I didn't know I wanted it until I saw it, but now I realize it's something I've been wanting for a long time".

Super confusing in the download area. I have all expansions, but I choose not to load free time. It makes my sims whistle a strange tune and just act out of character. So, I don't know which one to download. Any idea's?

Just want to mention that while I like the idea, this download disabled Smustle in the game for all stereos, including the defaults, it was no longer available in the click menu until I deleted these CC stereos.

I don't understand that, I only changed the slot data, nothing in the BHAVs. Perhaps something extra needs to be done to make stereo meshes function with other EPs such as with computers or refigerators, but I haven't seen anything online that would suggest you would need to do that.

Looks quite useful, but none of the files seem to match my game configuration. I have nightlife and freetime, but not glamour life. Suggestions?

I love the idea of the slots, can you make one for the bedroom set, the makeup table with the mirror, it is the base game one. Please
Thanks, chilili
