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 was hoping this was a functional harp, but it's still awesome nonetheless.

finaly! i've been waiting for someone to do a stereo that doesnt look like a stereo for EVER :exclamation: thanks SO much :exclamation:

my personal life can be supported by veiwing this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-n2z-Q6x6eU and others on my youtube page. I believe there's a few building tutorials there aswell. I create rather sporadically, so excuse me if I'm gone from this website for months or years at a time.

This is absolutely beautiful! I hope someday somebody can manipulate it into being a playable instrument as well!

A have a couple of harps only decorative in my game, but this idea was always running around my brain, and more, as keineeier3 says, it would be wonderful that any modder could make it playable.
