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.

Hi everyone.

I was fed up of some Maxis ceiling lamps, specially when I build kitchens or bathrooms. So, I made these halogene spots. Modern, elegant and sober, that was what I wanted and that was what I made .

These halogene spots do not requiere any EP. I made two versions :
- the first is a single spot
- the second is two spots on the same tile

These spots are recolourable. The default color is black but you can download a white and a gold recolors. Of course you need to download first the meshes included in the first (for the "single spot version") and the third rar files (for the "two spots version").

I hope you will enjoy them ,


Polygon Counts:
Single spot : Faces=168 ; Vertices=146
Two spots : Faces=336 ; Vertices=292

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

They're lovely, thank you! The middles of my rooms are almost always left unlit because I really hate long ceiling lamps getting in the way of my play and screencaps, and more often than not floor lamps and table lamps just look weird there. So these will come very in handy! Thanks again.

Ooo! Thanks for these! I keep wanting more lighting options that aren't chandeliers. Those are certainly lovely, but there are only a select few situations where they're completely appropriate. It's nice to have a ceiling light that's more subtle and versatile!

There should be more lights like this, I really like them.

And even though I'm making an older-style bakery, I want these lights so I don't have to deal with finding the right style of hanging lamp xD

I was looking for this. It is much better than those large and clumsy Maxis ceilinglights. Thanks

I use this thing in almost every single room in my sims' homes! It casts a nice, warmish glow on objects. I know that this comment is months later from when you created this, but I would like to say: THANK YOU!
