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.
Unquestionably a classic hard rock milestone, the characteristic asymmetric V shape of the Rhoads guitar always implies the arrival of powerful rythms!

Rhoads Guitar
Entertainment/Skills
Price: 700


This guitar was made using a completely custom mesh; after a first design in Google SketchUp 8, it was exported in Blender, where the UV map - still simple, I will do something better in the future! - was created. This mesh contains a number of polygons slightly higher than the original TS4 guitars in both medium and high LODs, possibly resulting in slowness issues on low-performing machines, but the advantage is a quite good level of detail.
The guitar stand visible in the image below

is NOT INCLUDED in this package. The Rhoads Guitar does not contain any guitar stand, and it may be used without stands - literally fluctuating in the air! -, but this unrealistic behaviour can be avoided by simply downloading the guitar stand shown in the image, which was created by Design4Sims together with a nice set of recolours for an acoustic guitar from TS3: http://sims4studio.com/post/23950
Only the black texture shown in the screenshot is included in the package. Recolours would be very nice; don't hesitate if you want to do them!

Polygon Counts:
Vertices: 781
Polygons: 588

(in both medium and high LODs)
