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.
This object is a remake of the concept I used when making an organ for The Sims 2, but it differs in that it's not just a conversion, but rather a new set built completely from scratch for The Sims 3. Its design has been built around the idea of using the new quarter tiles and the Create-a-Style tool.

While it works well enough without, I would HIGHLY suggest that this item be used with both the moveobjects cheat and the game's built in free placement/rotation tool. The set was optimized for the use of these and it allows for greater customization and less building hassle.

All non-Late Night users may continue to get this object as a decorative item with the base game version download.
Late Night users can now play the consoles with the Late Night version download

The set includes 30 pieces: 4 different organ consoles (5 with Late Night) and 26 pieces of pipe work, all pictured below.

**Updated 2-5-11**
-Fixed footprints on all pipes making them easier to use without move_objects (though it is still recommended)
-Chamades can now be placed on walls properly
-Chamades are now height adjustable
-All organ consoles are now playable (LN only)
-Updated console specular textures (LN only)
-Added new stencils to the consoles for inverted-color keyboards (LN only)
-Added new portable drawbar organ console (LN only)

To update from the original version simply place the new parts in the same installation directory and let them overwrite the old ones. You will need to buy new consoles, but all the pipes will update so there is no need to rebuild your organ.

All pieces have 3 designable areas.
1. Body
2. Face
3. Collar
House, Church, and Symphonic Consoles:
1. Exterior
2. Interior
3. Toe Pistons
Theatre Console:
1. Exterior
2. Interior & Trim
3. Bench Seat
Drawbar Console:
1. Body
2. Frame
3. Pedalboard

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.
