Picked upload! Ceiling Halogen Spot

by Odysseus1960 Posted 28th Nov 2009 at 5:33 PM - Updated 7th Apr 2011 at 7:53 PM by Odysseus1960 : Fixed with BlueLot Object Fixer
73 Comments / replies (Who?) - 25 Feedback 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.

This is a sims 3 item, you can recolour it yourself.

Brilliant job, the screens look great!

PS - where is the CC in the screens from? :o Mainly the table and bar stools?

Cheers!

Thank you! No the house is not posted anywhere. It's a replica of my condo... NOT... I made it for one of my Sims but since there are so many houses available on Sims sites, I never uploaded it.

Cheers!

WOW you should totally upload that lot I'm sure it would be a hit, just looking at the pics for this made me wish that this was the upload for that lot, after reading that this was the upload for the light (which by the way is fabulous) I became a bit sad. Please oh please upload that lot it is stunning from the inside and I'm sure that the outside is as well [I can just tell from how superbly well the interior was done ]

Now stop, I'm blushing now. I'll see what I can do about uploading it. It has a ton of custom content (including objects I did but not uploaded yet) and doing the inventory to post it here would be a big job. BTW, the exterior is not that great. We'll see. I can't promise you anything right now.

Thank you and Cheers!

I am not a object creator myself and there is those simple objects like this that would be simple to make but never are despite the fact that they are hugely desired. However people such as yourself take it upon as a task to provide a great unique object like this. Thanks alot!

#17 Old 28th Nov 2009 at 11:33 PM
Oh please Odysseus, upload your objects! I'm sure that too many people will download those! I was waiting for this spot! We need more objects like this in MTS, because in other sites, this kind of content is pay... VERY WELL DONE!!! THANKS A LOT!!!

YES! I have been waiting for these... I've seen something like these (but not as good ) on another website and you had to "suuubbbbscriibbbe" to the website by PAYING to get these. Sorry, for the long message, but this is so amazing! THANK YOU.
