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.
EDIT APRIL 2009
THIS HAS BEEN UPDATED-- I made this before I knew my way around SimPE, but now it has been re-cloned properly. Please re-download if you experienced crashing, no-placement bugs, etc. etc.

Also: There was a rumor floating around a while ago about me using premade meshes. I'm pretty sure it's died out (from lack of proof), but I want to set everyone straight: I do not use premade meshes. That's it. I make my meshes from scratch.

Thanks to everyone who stood by me and refused to buy into the nonsense rumor, and I hope those few who did buy into it will come to their senses...

A gift I made for the lovely Jessica of Wicked Sims. Because of its size, objects placed to the left or right of it may clip slightly, but... a mirror like this is one of those objects that gets an entire side of the room all to itself anyway. Right? Right.


Additional color options (in the recolors.rar):




Double thanks to my bff, Migamoo, for testing this for me!

Polygon Counts:
1416 (pretty freaking decent for something with all these flourishes)

I'm so impressed. I'm such a fan now, Adele. I just loved the loveseat you made, and this mirror is exquisite, I've wanted something like this for ages! It'll look great in my Harry Potter cottage! He'll finally have a Mirror of Erised .

It reminds me slightly of the mirror in Phantom of the Opera, from the The Mirror/Angel of Music scene.

It's gorgeous, nevertheless!

Well, it's all said here by Pixelhate! I loved the textures. The mirror is so nice that can be put in a fancy house of in those distressed decadent chic ones. Thanks a lot! Your creations are wonderful!

Does this mirror require any expansion packs, or conflict with any hacks? I downloaded this mirror, and it shows up in my Buy catalog, but my game won't let me place it anywhere (it shows up as red). The game won't give me a reason for not letting me place it anywhere, either, like "Must be against wall" or "Must be placed on surface".

I have University and Nightlife EPs (and patches for both installed), and the InSIMinator, Pregnancy All-Wear, and No-Jitters Espresso hacks.

How odd! It shouldn't require any ep's... and it was cloned from a base-game mirror. I don't see how those hacks could conflict, either....

Can you post some screenshots? I have no idea why it would behave this way....
