Picked upload! Ceiling Halogen Spot

by Odysseus1960 Posted 28th Nov 2009 at 4:33 PM - Updated 7th Apr 2011 at 6:53 PM by Odysseus1960 : Fixed with BlueLot Object Fixer
73 Comments / replies (Who?) - 17 Feedback Posts, 7 Thanks Posts
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.
Attention shoppers!

Here's a new way to light up your house. Create a unique ambiance in any room with this ceiling halogen spot from Sim-Ometry.

Since the spot is not too bright, you can place several of them without over-lighting the room.

NOTE: Now fixed with BlueLot Object Fixer



You can use it anywhere you like but the effect is at it's best when the spot is placed near walls.



This is my first upload to MTS and your comments will be appreciated. Enjoy!

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

I'm going to have to come up with a form response for your stuff as it's always awesome stuff, and this light is no different. Awesome! Thanks for sharing it with us. This is perfect for showcasing my sims paintings and other artwork that he places close to walls.

Delphy's tool http://modthesims.info/showthread.p...t=&page=1&pp=25 reports that this object can possibly cause blue lots. Can you fix it?

If Delphy's tool finds an error, this doesn't mean that there will be blue lots everytime you use it, but that certain data is incorrect, which could then cause problems with the next ep or update even if it works with WA. So it's probably better to fix it anyway.

For those interested, I replaced the .zip file with a fixed version. By doing so, I lost all my download statistics for the file, but it's fixed...

Hi these are great but it seems that they only light up the bottom half of walls leaving the top half dark. Was just wondering whether that was deliberate?

It sure is llee. Some halogen spots give this kind of "effect" and that was the point of this item.

@BaXiM Thanks for the German version.

They are so useful when decorating your house because they give good light and are still very small. Great job - thank you!

I'm sorry but, I was not aware this needed to be fixed for "Late Night".

What fix are you talking about exactly. I'm afraid I'm a little behind on the Sims community news these days.

Hello. I wanted to say thank you for all of the beautiful contemporary lighting and furniture. ^-^

Also, I was hoping to ask a question. In the first set of pictures for this item, in the bottom left image, there's a selection of paintings up on the wall. I was wondering if these were custom content? And if so, I was wondering if you might be able to tell me where to download them?

Thanks very much.

Thank you!

The paintings are called The Chocolate series from Simpossible. But, their website seems to be down now.

It's been really bugging me that there are no small, simple, non-hanging ceiling lights for TS3 in any of the expansions or the store. Thank you for providing one.
