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.


I, like many people, find items are cuter the smaller they are. I was having my sim cook in the kitchen when I thought "She would like a TV to watch her cooking programs". So I made mini TVs to be placed on desks, dressers, and counters. You can even place it on a dresser close to your sims bed, and they will watch the TV while laying in bed!


These will not allow you to attach video game systems. I apologise. I had to switch a few options off in order to get them to work correctly.






BONUS!!!! Now an LCD flatscreen is included as well, for your jaded, rich sims.



Each item is found with the normal TVs in the Electronics. They each have only 1 recolourable channel, which is fine since there isn't much to these TVs to color. The regular TV is priced 250, whereas the Flatscreen TV is priced at 900.




Please enjoy!


Please leave feedback as to whether you enjoyed them or not.



Keep your eye out for more tiny objects!

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

They are in the electronics. They do not have a special icon, however, so they pretty much look similar to the other tvs.

It's been a while since I played TS3 so I don't know if I'm being a total douche, but when I try to extract either file from the downloads it says it's unrecognisable? Usually my PC has its own extractor, but it didn't with these file so I got WinRAR. It opened it in the rar program but I got an access denied message when I chose a directory?
argh
I miss the simplicity of TS2 :/

Sorry to hear! I find it easiest just to open the file, and instead of messing with directories, just double click *If you have Delphy's helper monkey installed*.

You get an access denied message when trying to extract directly to your Mods/Packages folder because it is inside your Program Files which is considered protected by your OS. Extract to your desktop then copy paste to the Mods/Packages folder.
