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.
Inspired by real life glow-in-the-dark stepping stones: glow-in-the-dark stepping stones for the sims. These don't really glow-in-the-dark (through no fault of mine since glow-in-the-dark paint doesn't exist in the game) but they -do- light up. The effect of the lighting isn't strong. These won't light up your sims' yards like it's daylight! No, not at all. The effect is more like being surrounded by a bazillion candles. Like so -

What You Get:
4 meshes
16 recolors

What You Need To Know:
This set uses the repository technique. The big, single stone is needed for the other 3 meshes to work in your game.
No cheats are needed to place these and they won't block your sims' paths. They will walk on/over them like they're not even there.
They can be seen in the neighborhood view.

Catalog Location and Cost:
Lighting>Outdoor (all) for 10 Simoleons.

Special Added Feature!!
Say you've got a nice little garden area set up at the end of a path made using these stones. You've also got some outdoor lights placed. You click to turn on all the outdoor lights and they -all- go on, even the stones and you wanted them to be off. Or maybe you've got all the outdoor lights on and you want just these stones off OR you want just the stones on while leaving the rest of the outdoor lighting off. What do you do? Click on each and every stone to turn them on or off? NO!! What you'll want to do is click on ONE of the stones. You'll see the pie menu come up and if you look closely, you'll see there is another option. Click it, go ahead, you know you want to! You can still turn the stones on/off using the other pie menu options, I just thought this would be a nice touch that would make it a bit easier to control the outdoor lighting.

Yep, you're seeing things clearly. Clicking on one of the stones will let you turn them all on or off at the same time... while leaving the other outdoor lighting on or off.
Please note that you'll have to click on one of each size/mesh (there are 4 different meshes) to turn all of that size/mesh on or off! But you still won't have to click on each and every stone!

Much credit and thanks to NixNivis for helping me to figure out how to add that little feature. It saved me much clicking while testing these and taking the screenshots. <3

Polygon Counts:
Single - 48
Double (both meshes) - 96
Quadruple - 192
