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.
I had a random bout of inspiration to see if I could have two screens in a tablet edit, and I can! Both display the same thing at all times, but the fact that it works at all is cool.

Edited from the Slablet, so whatever that can do, this can do.


9 swatches, all based on real colors.


Model from WarioWare: Touched!, downloaded from The Models Resource.

Found in Electronics in Buy mode, under Computers, much like the original tablet.
Named "Nintendo DS".
Price is 200 Simoleons.

Made with Sims 4 Studio. Textures made in GIMP. Mesh spliced in Blender.

(All LODs use the same polygon count)

Polygon Counts:
Vertices: 2724
Polygons: 1680

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

I still have my original silver! My step-nephews thought it was brand new.

The hinge on mine broke and it went through a lot. I still have it and it still works, but not great.

Finally tried this out, thanks! (We used to have the original DS, but we sold it. We have DS Lites and DSis, though.)

Not to mention that since it has a touch screen, the tablet behavior isn't as weird.
