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.
Many thanks to kluless for bringing to my attention, that due to a careless mistake on my part, this light was overriding the OFB 'Single-Track Light Set'. I have fixed the problem and replaced the files. Please delete all my previous 'IKEA Baskis Ceiling Light' files, including recolours, from your game, before replacing them with the fixed ones. I am sincerely sorry for an inconvenience this may have cause anyone.

I was going through some files, searching for something and came across this ceiling light unfinished in the IKEA Home Stuff Pack. I looked around and couldn't find were anyone had finished and uploaded it, so I thought why not take a look and see if I can finish it. I have also included 9 recolours of the shade. I didn't correct the spelling, I left it the way Maxis spelt it in the files.

This is not base game compatible, OFB is required!

BASKIS Ceiling Light:
Subsets: 2 = Shade and Fixture both recolourable.
