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.
This is a functional, walk-in phone booth for your community lots. It has its own interior lighting and the glass panels are separately recolorable from the main body.

I have made recolors in a variety of styles. There are several different window designs including a smashed version for your inner city lots.

The mesh is actually smaller than the one from the Maxis phone booth.

The interior light uses one of the Maxis base game lights so this aspect of the booth should be compatible with any EP combination (or just the base game).

Only download one .zip file! The compatibility notes below show which file you need based on the latest EP which you have installed.

Compatibility Notes

Mucho thanks are due to TashaFaun who cloned the BV version of the Maxis phone booth and helped me with testing.
