MAXIS LOST & FOUND #3: FIVE "STUDIO" LAMPS
UPDATED 08 FEB 2008: added four more lamps

ClickMe ClickMe

I always feel a little weird when editing very old threads like this one... -

As per request by Aramis, I've decided to extract all the other Studio lamps (they are five in total). Of course, I'm aware that other users have already extracted them, but of course mine are somewhat different...
Here are the other Studio Lamps posted at MTS2:
  • "2 Studio Lamps" by Targa: these are full clones and therefore are much bigger (in file size) than mine and contain duplicated resources; and of course they are only 2...
  • "Maxis based modern wall lights" by Ailias: this is a full clone for the Umbrella lamp only.
  • "Maxis Studio Lamps" by Psyckotic: this is a collection, not actual objects; Aramis reported it not to work with BV. However, the collections are perfectly compatible with my lamps: if you install my lamps, using Psyckotik's collection will pick from the catalog my improved lamps, not the standard ones.
  • "229 ingame Maxis objects in collection files" by Frillen: these are collections, too; they contain 229 objects, so if you are interested only in the Studio Lamps it might be hard to find them These collections, too, are compatible with my lamps.

Compared to the lamps above, my lamps have the following added features:
  • They are compatible with any game, including BV.
  • They are neither collections nor full clones: they're "partial clones", meaning that the package contains only the resources really needed, without duplicating anything already existing in game.
  • They are fully recolourable, with the added bonus that they are all enslaved together: just create one recolour and it will apply to all the lamps at once!

I've kept the very same package name as the old Umbrella lamp, in order to make it overwrite the older file; therefore, even if the package name mentions only the Umbrella lamp, don't worry: it contains all the five lamps

All the five lamps can be found in the Buy Mode catalog, in section Lighting -> Misc



(Original post follows)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

While browsing the many packages nested into TS2 system folders, I found this Floor Lamp that Maxis forgot to include in the catalog.
This lamp is fully functional, its catalog descriptions are multilingual and everything is perfect... except it doesn't appear in the catalog!

Luckily I've found it, because it's a really beautiful lamp... It reminds me the Studios in TS1 Superstar! :mrpantha:

Instructions: just unpack into your download folder; you'll find the Umbrella Studio Lamp in the catalog, section Floor Lamps Lighting -> Misc.

Enjoy!

You don't need the CEP in order for it to show up in the game; you need the CEP only if you are planning to make/download recolours for it.

I can't thank you enough for making this accessable. The 'rewards' camera always took very dark pictures, but with the addition of this lamp they turn out perfect!

Yeah, he's quite the celebrity already. The side effect is that now he is too afraid to leave his house without a bodyguard.

Anyway, thanks for the object, it adds a nice touch to the family photo studio.

You are the best! I have to tell you that I have downloaded from many sites and on every single site your name comes up and I say WOW Numenor is apart of everything I see. I see people on paysites giving credit to you and so forth. It simply amazes me and I want to say that you are the best and without you our game would never be the same. Thank you dearly for all that you do to keep us hooked on this game. It is a break for me to play my game and you make it so awesome. Thank you for all you do!! Big hugs from Tweety64801. Oh yeah and thanks for the lamp too.

hey Numenor,

http://modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=131127
I know these files came out wayyy after your extracted objects did, but maybe you'd want to take a look at them anyway.. since some of the objects you've created seem to be the same as the ones in the collections. Or, even if they aren't the same, you might find some use for them! (:

Umbrella Studio Lamp is my favourite! But why my Sims2Pack Clean Installer thinks that it's a hack (in red colour) ? It's safe to include it in my lots for uploading? I don't get it.

The Clean Installer detects that the umbrella lamp is a replacement of the Maxis one, and it's true but don't worry: it's normal, it won't damage your game
