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!
It took me a while to prepare, but here it is. Four sets, 48 lights, split into two packs.
All base game compatible, and with reasonable poly-count.

Each pack contains a collection file - to be placed in Collections folder,
or directly in Downloads folder.

Instructions for Mac users:

Note: Radiance Lighting Mod users, apparently that mod changes the way how floor lamp light looks in the game.
I've edited two floor lamps from G&B set to emit brighter, warmer light. Look for the file in the comments section (bottom of page 3).

Modernist Lamps Collection
Includes two very similar sets. Lamps from Retro Lights Set emit warm, yellowish light.
Lamps from Cool Lights Set emit cold white light (that works well with bright recolors).

Retro Lights Set:

Retro Ball-Wand Sconce is a master mesh.
Retro Ball Sconce
Retro Hemisphere Sconce
Retro Quatrefoil Sconce
- all cost 282 S
Buy Mode/Lighting/Wall Lamps

Retro Ball Pendant Light - 538 S
Buy Mode/Lighting/Ceiling Lamps

Retro Table Lamp - 286 S
Buy Mode/Lighting/Table Lamps

Retro Floor Lamp - 389 S - Wooden parts pull texture from base game "Club Counter".
Buy Mode/Lighting/Floor Lamps


Cool Lights Set :

Cool Ball-Wand Sconce is a master mesh.
Cool Ball Sconce
Cool Hemisphere Sconce
Cool Quatrefoil Sconce
Cool Swing-Arm Lamp
- all cost 281 S
Buy Mode/Lighting/Wall Lamps

Cool Ball Pendant Light - 538 S
Buy Mode/Lighting/Ceiling Lamps

Cool Desk Lamp
Cool Table Lamp
- both cost 286 S
Buy Mode/Lighting/Table Lamps

..And two small additions:
Power cord for wall lamps
Longer power cord for wall lamps (new!)
- both costs 5 S - a low poly mesh, cord with a switch and a plug.
Found in Buy Mode/Lighting/Miscellaneous, each file includes recolors.
The shorter cord will be useful if you can shift wall lamps
(but you can also use OMSP to place it on end-tables etc).
I use these to transform base game wall lights into bedside lamps.


The second pack:Vintage Lamps Collection Also contains two sets.

GameRoom Set:

Buy Mode/Lighting/Ceiling Lamps
Gameroom 3-Shade Lamp - 540 S - classic billiard lamp, master mesh.
GameTable Hanging Lamp - 230 S
Industrial Pendant Light - 200 S

Buy Mode/Lighting/Table Lamps
Gameroom Desk Lamp - costs 290 S


Glass & Brass Set (G&B) is a massive set, that includes a few mini-sets.

Buy Mode/Lighting/Ceiling Lamps:

G&B Antique Billiard Lamp - 540 S - is a master mesh.
Blown Glass Pendant Light - 328 S
Bell Pendant Light - 329 S
Berry Pendant Light - 330 S
Lantern Pendant Light - 331 S
Fantastical Pendant Light - 854 S
Fantastical Chandelier - costs 6500 S - giant ceiling lamp, two storeys high.
This one is more high-poly than the rest, 3437 polygons. But you won't fit a lot of these in one house anyway..

Ribbed Sphere Ceiling Lamp - costs 550 S
needs second master mesh: Ribbed Sphere Table Lamp.

Buy Mode/Lighting/Wall Lamps:

Lantern Sconce - 288 S
Quatrefoil Sconce - 288 S
Bell Sconce - 289 S
Pyramid Sconce - S 290

Apple - costs 289 S
Pyramid Table Lamp - 290 S
Banker Desk Lamp - 290 S
Bell Table Lamp - 290 S
Small Hexagon Table Lamp - 294 S
- lamp base pulls textures from base game "CleenSheen Basin".
Hexagon Table Lamp - 295 S
Round Table Lamp - 300 S
Ribbed Sphere Table Lamp - 300 S
- shares wooden base textures with Ribbed Ceiling Lamp (recolors included).
Ribbed Tetrapod - 301 S

Buy Mode/Lighting/Floor Lamps
Floor Lamps:

Buy Mode/Lighting/Outdoor:
Lantern Fence Light - 280 S

Garden Lamp - 580 S

Enjoy!


Notice:
I've generated random GUIDs for these items.

I recommend you get collection files, note how many lamps you've downloaded
and make sure it all shows up in each collection folder.

I've made all the 3D meshes aside from round Wall Lamp, that borrows parts and shape from Tiffany Lamp by Maxis.
Most of these were inspired by lamps I've seen on internet etc. Fantastical mini-set is my own design.
I still have a few lamps in my WIP folder.. But for now, I've switched to plumbing

Wow, this is stunning! *runs to download the glass & brass set*

Looking at all the pictures and all the recolors, I can't imagine how much time it must have taken you to make all of this, not just the meshes, but all these colors, then all the pictures you took of them, and all of the organizing it must have taken just to make this post and make these files. I'm amazed and awed and overwhelmed at what you've made, at how beautiful they are, and how much work you've put into this!

These are lovely, thank you for sharing. I particularly like the socket and lead part (cos I love realism in my game)
