Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Update 6/8/07: Quick fix thanks to Hexameter! This fixes a problem where the sound would intermittently fail to play amongst other things. Just re-download the carousel itself, the _sound file is unchanged.


Functionally, this behaves the same way as the carousel in the Carnival Set, with two key differences thanks to the extremely talented Hexameter:

(1) It looks way, way better!
(2) It plays music while it spins!

Both of these changes were made by Hexameter, and so all due credit for these changes should go to him, but he was so generous that he let me post it here. Any technical, behavioral or compatibility issues are entirely my problem though, and should be posted in this thread or sent to me by PM.

Additional Credits:
Hexameter, naturally, for the beautiful mesh and the delightful music! And of course the usual crowd - Quaxi, Peter Jones, Delphy, and the ranchies, mods and members of MTS2.
