This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
Relocation Info:
first of all I would like to thank the Mod the Sims team for the good work on the mod release exam, you are doing a good job.
As anyone who has ever uploaded a mod to Mod the Sims knows, this is a very time-consuming process.
Since I want to use my limited time better, I decided to publish my mods in my own Blog .
Updates for the mods published via MTS will only be done via my Blog in the future.

There you can also find the recolored emergency exit lighting.

This update fixes an error in the placement of the escape route lights. Now the lights can be placed in series like all other lamps from the game. The lamps no longer have to be taken individually from the catalog.

I have uploaded a revised version of the escape route lighting, the inner round corners look better now, also there are no white spots to be seen.

My Sims burn the half house when cooking. So that they can at least find the exit in the future I have now created a selection of emergency lights.

The lighting is based on the wall sign "nothing like away" from the extension "get to work". Since I find this shield too thick I have adapted the mesh.

The lighting comes in two variants with different light types:
The Varient Emergency exit light path is only equipped with a green PointLight.
The variant Emergency exit light - door also has a warm white SpotLight for the lighting of the door below.

Both lights can be found in the purchase menu --> lighting --> wall lamps, the lamps cost 230 Simoleon.

Important, the original is from the extension "get to work", the light works however without this extension

Polygon Count:
LOD 0 (high) = 110
LOD 1 (medium) = 62
Shadow LOD 0 = 92
Shadow LOD 1 = 44

Result (high) = 202
Result (medium) = 108

Texture Sources:
The emergency exit pictograms come from

I always thought the emergency exit looked a bit off. This looks much better. Thanks!

Thanks! So much needed! Every time I build a community lot and I try to use the EA one, it always pointing in the wrong direction, lol.

These are so amazing. This may seem silly, but will you be making the exit sign in simlish?

I just came out of my game. I used your EXIT sign and the light is terrific. It looks exactly like an emergency exit should. (I'm a realist at heart and I'd rather build than play.) Thank you <3
