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.
The “Vertex Crystal Chandeliers” are a stunning addition to your Sims grand foyers! With a modernistic crystal “look and feel”, these will go great in almost any new age home. With one long hanging and one short hanging, it’s perfect for large ballrooms or multiple rooms with similar styles.






REMINDER: Both lights are large and are meant to be hung on the second floor with no floor below it. (OTB)



Also, the chandeliers do appear turned off when there turned off. I didn’t take pictures because it’s not very attractive, nor do I need to show there dullness.

For more savvy users, you can make any crystal shapes with the alpha texturing in the package.

These are so beautiful that I`m going to use them regardless of the answer, but I have a question for you:

There are known issues with hanging ceiling lights from the ceiling of a two-plus story room, in that the lamp will fail to illuminate the lower floor(s) of the room. As these lamps are *designed* to be used that way, do they correctly illuminate the lower floor?

Good crystal chandeliers are hard to find. There was a gorgeous one that someone made way back for sims1. It was a multi tear drop one and was terrific. This looks wonderful. I am glad that someone finally made a decent crystal chandelier. Thank you so much.

If a cluttered desk is the sign of a cluttered mind, then what about an empty desk?

My stuff may be used in uploads if 1. Credit is given, 2. link to my page provided. Happy simming!

I was about to say "no it dosent". But now that I think of it, I believe that the light will illuminate the lower floor, but Im not for sure. I use Gunmods Radiance Light System so my sims 2 lighting is not the original. I have like a million huge chandeliers that I create for myself and I think they all have light on the lower floor; but it may not?

Also, Mansion & Gardens Stuff came with a 2 floor light that illuminated a large area on the 1st and 2nd floor walls and floors. I would clone from that, but then only a select few would be able to download it.

I don`t use the RLS, so your results don`t mean anything in my system. Still, thank you *very much* for your considered response. I`ll test it in my game, and if I find this thread again afterwards, I`ll let you know. Don`t expect a result for a few months, though, as I am *VERY* backlogged with downloads awaiting instalation. .

There are gorgeous pieces of work. Although, I can't get a chandeliers to place correctly. I tried going to the second floor over the empty space and it turns red and won't allow placement. I tried going to the first floor and it allows placement (with no celing above), but it goes through the floor? I would love to use these.
