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.

There was a serious lack of two-tile horizontal mirrors in my game. The ones you would hang in your hallway or above a dresser for when you quickly want to check whether your hair is still OK. Since there can never be enough IKEA in my game and my non-existent meshing skills, I decided to rotate the long vertical IKEA mirrors as they would fit the job perfectly. IKEA is versatile, so let our sims decide whether they want a horizontal or vertical mirror, as long as they have enough screws it should be fine!

Simply put: exactly the same as the original Maxis items, apart from the name.

The Fun Stuff
  • Texture-linked to the original mirrors, so they will pick up any recolors you have.
  • Quartertile enabled if you have M&G
  • Routing slot in the middle of the two tiles
  • Tested in AGS with only BG+IKEA
