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.
I'm currently building a new lot and have been using a foundation and also lowered walls. While playtesting I found out that the elevator didn't connect all floors because the levels with lowered walls didn't have an elevator shaft. It's also not possible to add the original elevator shaft to those levels with lowered walls because of its size - the top of it will always be visible at the above level. Since I didn't want to rebuild the whole lot again I decided to create a smaller elevator shaft for it.

This lowered version of the original elevator shaft works fine in game and therefore I'd like to share it with you. It's non-recolourable, just like the original elevator shaft.
