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.
Title: Three Tile Holographic Television



Purpose

1) To design a free floating "holographic" two sided three tile television object with an image that can be viewed from either the front or the back.

2) For efficiency, to slave its two sided static recolours to the Two Tile Holographic Television.

3) As an option, to allow the Holo TV to be placed in a conventional wall mounted picture frame.



Description

This basegame compatible object is functionallly identical to the Two Tile Holographic Television, and it is slaved to its textures. The free floating image is 50% larger and - like the Two Tile Holo TV - it can be framed within wall decor, such as the basegame "Rolling Hills" ("MoveObjects On" is not required).

While remaining basegame compatible, the Three Tile Holo TV supports the television functions of all expansion packs except those involving pets. (In order to maintain basegame compatibility, pets cannot interact with the Holographic Television Picture - but the object is otherwise fully compatible with the Pets EP.)

For times when autonomous television use becomes annoying, the player can be "Disable Autonomy".

This futuristic object does not depreciate, it is Apartment Life/M&G height adjustable, and it is also immune to fire, lightning, repossession, snow and theft. A limitation is that when switching off the television, you may momentarily see a blank glass screen, before the default picture is restored. Apart from being unbreakable and untinkerable, the Holo TV supports all television functions, including operation of the basegame video game machine.

The Three Tile Holographic Television can use invisible screen recolour that is built-in to the Two Tile Holo TV. If this invisible recolour is placed within a conventional picture frame, the underlying picture will be revealed when the television goes off. The three tile basegame "Rolling Hills" wall decor provides a convenient picture frame.
