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.

Something for the medieval and magical simmies to dance to
Consider it a very old version of the stereo
could you help me test this?

the info:
poly's: 540 (low)
price: 599
fun score: 9
room score: 2

Thanks to Numenor, I've figured out how to get it to work for the Original game. And Young link has been kind enough to test this for me in Night life. The sword is now officially compatible with all current versions of the Sims2

I've been having way too much fun recolouring this, so included in the package are:
a brass anvil (default mesh colour), black stone, white marble and green marble anvils.
a silver sword (default), Gold, Blue Crystal, Demon Black, Emerald of the Earth and Blood Ruby swords (don't you just love fantasy names ).
As you can see, the sword and anvil can be recolored separately, with the SimPE Wizard.
Catalog entries for Dutch, French, German (thank you, besen, for your wonderful translation :howdy: ), everyone else gets English.

The legals,
You are free to recolour, hack, mess with this object and post your work, as long as you link to the original mesh in this thread and tell me all about it.
Please don't post the mesh anywhere without asking me first.
Please don't put this object or its recolours in a downloadable lot.

Known issues:
This is officially a 1-tile object, but the mesh is 2-tiles. That means that, if you really wanted to, you could put half the object through a wall or something. Or put a plant under the overhanging bit, of course
The 'wave' animation is a bit off.
There was a glitch with the shadow, so I removed it completely.
If I find fixes for any of these, I'll update

Some of the recolours:

and Severus, dancing....

Enjoy, and please let me know how it works out for you.
