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.
Hi Guys

Would you test this please?
Made with Milkshape, The Mesh Tool and SimPev0.42 it is colour enabled, EP ready (not required) and has its own GUID (no conflicts)

Polygon Count : 206 (=VERY low )

AT LAST!!...a WORKING (time telling) MANTLE clock!. (no chines/ticks or any other interaction..but it does tell the correct Sim time)

I've gone for a modern design (don't worry..I'll do a traditional one later)..with seven recolours. (The default is the one in the centre of the fireplace pic)

It can be found in Electronics/Small Electronics

It can be placed on all surfaces (Thanks Numenor!) including the mantle.

Please report any issues..and thanks for testing


Recolours: (As with all my objects,) please DO NOT post any files that contain my original mesh.
You are free to post your recolour files (preferably here, in the recolours section). Please pm before posting recolours....I always reply!.. as I love to see what you recolour artists can do with my stuff! Remember to post a link back here for the original mesh
LOTS: Please do NOT include this (or any other of my objects) in any LOT uploads. These are (still) BETA objects, here for testing, and not yet ready to 'inflict' on an unsuspecting LOT downloader.
