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.
A bright and festive set of star lamps for parties or bohemian home-decor.

There are three versions of this star lamp-- one ceiling version, and two wall versions at different heights. The wall versions hang right next to the wall, and cast accurate shadows. There is no shadow for the ceiling version.

No EP should be required. Please let me know if they give you any trouble.

There is one color included in the mesh file, and eighteen recolors, for a total of 19 color options. (They're *lots* of fun to make. Stop me before I do any more...)

Recoloring is encouraged! You may include the mesh with your recolors, with credit to Babayaga.

Do not upload the meshes or any recolors to TSR, the exchange, or any pay site (this includes uploading them in houses/lots).

If you do any recolors, I'd love to see them-- drop me a line if you have a chance.

Polygon Counts:
Lower wall version: 152 faces/ 101 verts
Higher wall version: 152 faces/ 101 verts
Ceiling version: 148 faces/ 93 verts

I only ask three things of you: Who are you? Where did you come from? And what extraterrestrial powers allow you to read people's minds?

Because that's what you're doing! Reading my mind! What other explanation is there for this perfect upload, just when I was thinking that I needed some nice paper lanterns like these? This is so perfect for my artist's loft. Thanks so much! =D
