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.
Would you guys mind testing this for me please?

Made with Milkshape, The Mesh Tool and SimPev0.42 it is colour enabled, EP ready (not required) and has its own GUID (no conflicts)

Polygon Count : 447 (= low )

This is (another) animated (time telling) clock...but this time, a TRADITIONAL (mantle) clock!

It has no chimes or ticks and never needs winding. There are NO interaction, but it tells the correct SIM time

This is for you traditionalists out there (who didn't like my modern mantle clock ).

It is based on a traditional French Mantle Clock design...and comes with an additional five recolours. (The default is the one in the main pic on its own).

Some of the recolours mean that this CAN be used in more modern houses (especailly the blue and white ones).

It comes in Cherry wood (default), Natural Pine, White Ash, Black Ash, Green (Stained) Pine ...and the blue one!

It can be found in Electronics/Small Electronics

It can be placed on ALL surfaces -Thanks Numenor!- (including the fireplace mantle).

Please report any issues..and thanks for testing



Bob



Recolours: (As with all my objects,) please DO NOT post any files that contain my original mesh.

You are free to post your recolour files (preferably here, in the recolours section). Please pm before posting recolours....I always reply!.. as I love to see what you recolour artists can do with my stuff!
(Remember to post a link back here for the original mesh)

LOTS: Please do NOT include this (or any other of my objects) in any LOT uploads. These are (still) BETA objects, here for testing, and not yet ready to 'inflict' on an unsuspecting LOT downloader.

********KNOWN ISSUE**********
This clock will disable the pie menus for the Maxis alarm clocks. They will still tell the time correctly, but you wont be able to set them for work/school etc. If you wish to use a maxis alarm clock in your game, please remove this file from your download folder. Sorry!***************************************
Style: Antique
Room: Living Dining Bedroom
Maxis Flags: Not Applicable

I've put several of these in homes and the modern one as well and had no problems with the game. I love the fact that they can go on the mantle. Thanks so much.

Love it! Thanks a million! It looked like the one at my home except mine is a lot bigger and there's sculptures on it's both side. And mine's made of stone and marble and gold.
