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.
NOTICE: The coffee table is back up for download. Please redownload this updated version and replace all three files in the downloads folder. Apologies for the error, but if anyone still experience problems, report please. Cheers

G'day guys! Me and my gorgeous girlfriend are having a dilemma. See, we're planning to furnish our living room, and we're having a disagreement; yknow, she's a full-on beach kinda girl, and I'm more street kinda guy, so whose passion is going up the wall, her surfboard or my skateboards?

Anyway, so I thought Id let you guys get in on this for a bit, being champs that you are :P
Since some of you guys requested these items from my last thread, would you guys please test these out for me?

This set contains 7 new meshes, and recolours.
Require only the base game

I'm pretty happy with the specs, although it's still mixed bags, with some older objects having too high a face counts. Here are the specs: (Polygon count)

ModWallLLamp: 136
Longboards: 442
WallPlaqueLamp: 220
Skateboards: 1114
RatanCoffeeTable: 1030
TwiggyTableLamp: 2720
WallLightingLargestSpot: 628

As you can see, I've improved the polygon counts since my last object, but Ill make a special mention that the Table Lamp has really high Pol count and should only be used by PC's of the higher end, sorry to say.

These are made with: SimPE, 3ds Max, Wings 3d, MilkShape and UVMapper

Textures of the skateboards are from the skateshop, and one of them is mine
Longboards are by Walden

The wall lights can be found in Lighting > Wall,
The Surfboard and Skateboards can be found in Decorative > Wall hanging,
And Coffe table in Surfaces > Coffee Table... I'm prety sure you don't need me saying that one, but just following procedures

Recolours: Please refer to my profile

The Sofas are mine from here
Dark blue wall by http://holysimoly.com/index.cfm?go=...047D1008013395F
the rest are maxis' or mine.

Ok, have you decided which room looks better? Cmon, skateboards on the wall looks way better don't you reckon? :P

Alright, thanks for testing these out if you are, and please report any faults and problems
