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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Hi Guys,
Would you test this for me please?

Made with Milkshape, SimPE v.44b and The Mesh Tool it is EP compliant (not required), colour enabled and has its own unique (registered) GUID - so won't conflict with (or overwrite) anything else in your game.

Polygon Count: 350 (= low )

This is an animated fibre optic lamp ....and, just like the real ones, it doesn't throw ANY light in the room :laugh:'s pure decoration.

It is however very pretty ...and the tips of the fibres change through 8 different colours. It comes with six different base colours.

It's a bit of fun and elegance for those more 'modern' rooms... and gives you 2 room points. (My inspiration came from Numenor's Lava Lamp and JWoods animated things )

It can be found in Decorations/Sculptures....because it's not a light!


Normally I'm not good at requests, but I was asked by anelca for a bigger one to fill an end table, so I have added that (just a resize job, so only took a few minutes).

As it uses the textures from the small one, any recolours of the small one will automatically be added to the large one. NB: You need the small one for the large one to work


Please report any issues...and thanks for testing


Recolours: (As with all my objects,) please DO NOT post any files that contain my original mesh.
You are free to post your recolour files (preferably here, in the recolours section). Please pm before posting recolours....(I always reply!)... as I love to see what you recolour artists can do with my stuff!

LOTS: Please do NOT include this (or any other of my objects) in any LOT uploads. These are BETA objects, here for testing, and not yet ready to 'inflict' on an unsuspecting LOT downloader.

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