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 have been wanting lights that blink forever.

What can't be found must be created. So create I did.

With the holiday season upon us there is no better time to introduce Flashing Lights, lights that actually blink!

Four unique designs: stack-able trees, semi-circles made of rays of light, snowflakes and stars.
Eight, large, colorful flashing lights in all. All easily re-sizeable.
They can be used indoor or outdoor, alone or combined to create unique displays sure to wow Sim neighbors.
For greater realism Flashing Lights have been timed to blink on and off at different intervals .
Like many real world light displays, Flashing Lights work as if they were on a timer, lighting up only after dark.


With a low price of a mere 50 Simoleons and very low Poly counts, there is no reason not to light up your Sim's world this holiday season with Flashing Lights.




To preserve the brightest possible contrast with the darkness around them, Flashing lights glow but do not emit light. They are visible in daylight but are only illuminated at night. Due to the nature of
the illuminated mesh used, recolors are separate packages. The lights may require bb.moveobejcts cheat to position.
Note:When seen from a large distance some smaller details on the lights may no longer be visible.





Check out these videos to see the these animated lights in action:
