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.
Title: Futur-Vu Twin Television

January 18, 2020: Minor Bugfix

This update fixes a jump bug that would occur when my Ghostly Workers attempted to turn off an abandoned (unwatched) Twin TV. This relates to a basic incompatibility in EA televisions - there are two categories of TV and they each turn off in different ways. The Twin TV is now compatible with the second method instead of the first, which fixes the bug.


1) To create an Mid-Century Modern object based on the Pets Futur-Vu Television, featuring two sided tabletop viewing.

2) To provide some Futur-Vu television recolours, for both the EA original and this Twin version.


Viewable from front or back, this table top TV is perfect for a group of friends or a large family to gather round and watch the latest show!

This Mid-Century Modern object does not depreciate, it is Apartment Life/M&G height adjustable, and it is also immune to fire, lightning, repossession, snow and theft. Apart from being unbreakable and untinkerable, this TV supports all television functions, including operation of the basegame video game machine.

The television is placeable on almost any surface, including the floor. For times when autonomous television use becomes annoying, the player can "Disable Autonomy".

This object requires Pets or any later EP.


1) Futur-Vu Twin Television - The Twin TV costs 802 Simoleons and can be found in the television section of the catalogue. It has a Fun rating of 7 and a Room (Environment) rating of 3.

2) Base Recolours - Ash Wood, Cherry Wood, Gold, Grey Wood, Maple Burl, Porcelain, Purple Pastel, Red Mahogany, Santa Maria, Silver, White Wood, Yellow Pine.

3) Tube Recolours - Blue Opal, Blue Purple, Blue Sky, Cyan, Gold, Green Light, Green Sea, Orange, Pink, Purple Pastel, Red, Silver.
