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.
This is exactly like ShadowTerra13's buyable Porta Chug, except hers requires Nightlife and this version requires OFB. I made it because one of my computers doesn't have Nightlife on it. I used Merola64's outdated cloning tutorial because SimPE's Object Workshop doesn't let you choose which expansion you use to clone an item. (Thank you MTS2 staff, for keeping the old tutorials on the site!)

I tested this on my computer with all the expansions through Seasons as well as on my OFB-only computer, and it worked fine. It did not affect the original Chug and did change turn-ons and turn-offs, allowing my sim to gain another bolt for his girlfriend.

Polygon Counts:
Not used -- this "clone" pulls the mesh and texture directly from the game, and works by changing the GUID and Group IDs for the new item without changing much else -- the only other adjustment I made was to add it to the catalog in the Misc/Misc category to make it buyable.
