I love mid-century style, and I was always disappointed with the unusual art-deco styling of the old-timey TV we got with The Sims 3, and all the custom retro-styled TVs I have seen for the game have been...lacking in style. So I converted one of my favourite items from the entire franchise, this here beautiful mid-century modern TV set.

Futur-Vu by Vidioblast

Relive the glory days of TV's infancy while you watch your favorite shows of today. The Futur-Vu uses real lead-lined CRT technology to provide a delightfully distorted picture in a package so heavy you'll probably need surgery if you ever decide to try and lift it. Vidioblast is not responsible for retinal damage caused by sitting too close to the screen.

This is just a little something I whipped up...an embarrassingly long time ago, I just never got around to uploading it. It's the Futur-Vu TV from The Sims 2: Pets, fully recolorable and available in two TS2 presets, with three channels and a deliciously baked multiplier map!

It costs ยง800 and can be found under Electronics/TVs. It's classed as a high-end set, so you'll receive all the channels that exist in-game, and it shouldn't be too prone to breaking.
