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.


Legend has it that the infamous pirate "Jack the Crooner" would sing to his victims as they walked the plank. Some say this made them more than willing to jump off into the briny deep...



After Jack met his well-deserved fate, Captain Hook retrieved his skull from Davy Jones' locker, so your Sims can once again dance to Jack the Crooner's tune.

This is a fully functional stereo. The mesh was made in MilkShape using parts of the Maxis skeleton and the Maxis bandanna men's hair mesh. There are 6 color options included, with and without bandannas.



Feel free to make more color options - see my policy for more information.

Am I going crazy or wasn't this same radio around a long time ago? I could swear I had it at one time before I lost my old computer.
I love it, whether it's new or not. Thanks!

I'm not sure if this is hilarious or demented...

No, you aren't crazy - this object used to be available on my now closed Website.

Dr Pixel, your basic white skull and a black skull-table, that I found, look PERFECT in my castle's grand dining-hall! (Now we can work-off those LARGE meals, right afterwards!)
