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.
Ye Olde 20th Century Banners

For some a streetlight is simply a source of illumination, for others it is the crowning glory of a bustling paved sidewalk. Are your Sims missing the Old Town flavor that their forbearers cherished? Are budding entrepreneurs Seeking practical solutions for their advertising needs? These streetlights with attached banners have been designed to maximize visual appeal while still maintaining ample room for business logos, birthday signs, or holiday decorations.

All six original game banners are included in their updated form!

I had hoped to have had this uploaded yesterday for my birthday, but our ISP had network problems about an hour before I was going to post. So finally here it is, my birthday present to you. With the upcoming Pets due out in a few more days one of the first things I’d think about is the ‘banner light’ that came out with Unleashed and it was driving me nuts thinking of having pet community lots without these lights! For me that is just very, very wrong. :D

I have tried my best to keep the poly count down but this is not a simple object (and still have it right). When I tried to reduce the count down further then it currently is I ended up with holes and a screwy looking light that I still had to fix twice. Each one of the images has been completely remade, often from tiny graphics from the original game (35 x 25 pixels for the Hot Date one). I wanted them to be as much like the originals as I could, but making them more fitting with Sims 2, I could have stretched out some of the pics and put them on there but it would just look really bad. I really hope you appreciate all the hard work that went into this, even with the frustrations that come up it’s still a labor of love.

What is included:

Light (mesh)- 2,595 faces, 2,060 vertices
The base texture for the light is the cat and dog silhouette

Optional Recolors

Downtown (Hot Date)
Vacation Island (Vacation)
Old Town (Unleashed)
Studio Town (Superstar)
Magic Town (Makin’ Magic)

Catalog sort- Room: outside, Function: lights
This is base game compatible as well as color enabled!

Terms & Conditions:

Can I make recolors of Corset's Objects? YES! Please link back to original mesh and Don't place on pay/restricted access sites. (it’s mean and evil, you fiend!)

Can I put Corset's Objects on Lots? MTS2 & Simburg Village only please, proper links required.

Can I alter Corset's Meshes? NO That means No cloning, No reposting (except with lots but proper links required). If you have the itch to screw with them, learn to make your own.

Side note for Sims 1 fans: I am slowly working towards converting more Sims 1 objects over to Sims 2 (whatever I really miss or strikes my fancy) so keep an eye out! If you have read this far, what are some of your favorite Sims 1 objects that have yet to be converted? I’m simply looking for suggestions of what people would want the most, this is no guarantee it will be made (I’m still learning). Seasonal suggestions are also another point of interest to me from the Sims 1 objects, and related expansion packs as well (like Unleashed and Pets, Hot Date and Nightlife).
