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.

Hey Everyone, today I have something new for all you awesome MTS2'ians. 3 LG TV's and a table mesh. I got this same TV IRL A few weeks ago, so that inspired this whole set

Does NOT require 'moveObjects' to pick up the TV when placed, which has been a problem with most other any surface TV's.

Includes:
- LG 2 Tile LCD Television with attached Table
- LG Place Anywhere (All surface) Flatscreen Television.
- LG Widescreen Wall TV.
- TV Table Mesh w/ Glass Subset.

All Base game compatible. Will work in any EP Config.



The Small Flatscreen can be placed on any surface, including End Tables, Coffee Tables, Shelves, The Floor etc.



All Tested in-game. Found in appropriate categories.

Polygon Counts:
Place anywhere TV: Polygons: 258, Vertex: 292 ~ Low
Wall TV: Polygons: 130, Vertex: 112 ~ Low
Floor TV: approx. Polygons: 1036, Vertex: 1180 ~ Low
Table: Polygons: 774, Vertex: 880

One question. I've had a few tv's that can be placed on any surface, and to be picked up, you had to use move_objects. Any problem like that?

Not that I mind that much. They still look great!

check out my Simblr. Mostly object recolors.

Thank you very much ShanOw! These are great

Sorry I can't take requests anymore!
And I will probably never convert my creations for TS2 to TS3.

These do not require move objects on, that problem has been fixed!

Thanks for your kind comments everyone!

These tv's looks so nice ! But does "Will work in any EP Config." means that it will have the freetime option, if freetime is installed?

Means that they will function as-is in any ep config. They are currently not freetime enabled as when adding the neccesart bits to make them work in FT the tv's ability to work on any surface seems to vanish Sorry.

Could you make these for The Sims 3? I love these but unfortunally no longer play Sims 2.

Looking to convert as much as possible over the next few months, these will be a bit tricky however, so will probably be left till last.

I unrared the any-surface TV. I got some kind of Spy Protection installer and a crapload of notepad documents. Is there something wrong with the zip???

Just downloaded and extracted all the files then with no problem. I highly suggest you have your computer checked for Malware and Virus's.
