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.
I've been using some of these for awhile as they are very useful alternatives to EA's content. There are six new TV's here. Technically, there are only three, but I made surface and wall versions of each.

The largest version, LSAF/LSAW, is two-tiles wide based off a Toshiba or Hitachi, can't remember.

*Do Not place drapes near a fireplace. Ever.

The next, MSBF/MSBW, are smaller, about one and a half tiles wide based off a Westinghouse.


The last, SSCF/SSCW, is the smallest only occupying one tile, based off an LG I believe?

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 don't have any phone CC so it's most probably from the HEL SP.

But my sims can't afford these sky high prices.. we already have to pay for groceries. we don't even have cars. we have to use taxies, and sometimes we get those cheap crapy cars.

I'm still trying to make a mod for it. The only way currently is for the TV to be on the floor.

I can't get the tv to go on top of the fireplace. Do I need a cheat to do so?

Which TV? And what Fireplace? A walled TV can be moved up and down. Only the smallest TV can be placed in spaces for Medium or larger objects. The other two are too large for that.
