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.
This time I made some candle variations because one is really not enough, is it?

I added flames on top because I thought they looked silly without one (the original one doesn't have either), but now they look even more silly I guess...
They are really meant for indoors use, they don't look particularly good outdoors.

In the set there is one round candle, one rectangular candle, a group of two and a group of three. These are all white and non-recolorable, but work like the original game candle, they can be lit and extinguished.
There is also a tray with candles that I converted from the Sims 2, unfortunately this one doesn't work, but on the upside, you can recolor the plate (or tray, whatever). These candles are light pink.

All can be found in Decorative/Misc, right next to the Mood-Lite Candle, because I kept the price that is 65§.



Polygon Counts:
Rectangular: 72 faces, 82 vertices
Round: 176 faces, 179 vertices
Two: 144 faces, 135 vertices
Three: 210 faces, 192 vertices
Sims2: 894 faces, 1029 vertices

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

I can tell you. She's pretty clever at using tables together and that's what she did here as well. She used Theo's Contempo Coffee Table & the Double Root End Table (both from the EA Store), and the Nearly-Perfect Pedestal (the cube found in deco objects-base game). Using the cheats moveobjects on & disableSnappingToSlotsOnAlt, you can place the objects as seen in her pics. I did it in my game to see how it works. :D

Not having a sig IS my sig. Oh wait, this is a sig, isn't it? Nevermind...

Mimi is correct, sometimes I can't resist the urge to stack tables together
