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.

Straight from Merlin's Magical Furnishings Emporium.
This beautiful Harp comes equipped with a compact hand-held Magic Wand cleverly disguised as what people in the future will call a "remote") so you can make it play music simply by waving your hand.

The download includes the mesh and three color options.

This harp is really a stereo, with all the usual stereo options.

No expansion pack(s) are required, however it will play all available music types depending on what expansion packs you have installed.

It uses two tiles of floor space.

The .package was cloned from the Maxis expensive stereo. The Mesh was created from scratch using MilkShape and the .obj file importer in SimPE Texture images were drawn using PaintShopPro.

=======================================

All my items including this one may be recolored/re-skinned.
You can use and alter my alphas and bumpmaps as you wish - no credit needed.

Please put some effort into it, there are many good tutorials here that will show you how to

make something you can be proud of.

If you are posting your work here, link to this thread so people can get the mesh.

If you are posting on the Exchange, you should also link to the thread since meshes do not

always package up properly in Lots.

If you are posting them on your own site you can offer my mesh for download on your site too.

Credit for the mesh is appreciated but not required.

If you are altering the mesh for any reason, please take the trouble to do it correctly -

change the filename, use fix integrety, get an new GUID and re-link it to your own color

.packages.

You can use all my items in your lots, screenshots, stories, movies, and complete Sims - no

credits necessary, just have fun with them.

===============================

To make this perfectly clear, what I am saying is that you can do whatever you want with my

items, and post them anywhere you like. That includes free sites, the Exchange, paysites, and

donator-only areas.

I just ask that you take the trouble to do it correctly so your stuff doesn't interfere with

anyone else's.

I had a harp downloaded but it wasn't even usuable as a stereo, it just sits there - but these are way better since they have a better purpose. Also the texture/color job on these are better and more detailed.

Beautiful harp. Maybe I'll make my Elven Sims play that harp and sing Lament of Highborne on it or any soundtrack present in the game.
