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.
Hello!

Here are light versions of the umbrella sculptures included in WA, IP, and ST.
-These will still function as the original umbrellas do, i.e. blocking snow from the table beneath them.
-In addition, they are scripted as a bistro light in order to give them the light functionality. This way you can interact with them as you would any other light in the game.
-They are also "Auto Buy" enabled, meaning they will remain selected after purchasing.

NOTE:
-The "Sleek Umbrella Light" and "Traditional Umbrella Light" are clones of the umbrella sculptures that come with Showtime but only require Late Night to show in-game.
-The "French Umbrella Light" requires World Adventures.
-The "Tropical Umbrella Light" requires Island Paradise.


Object Info:
  1. "French Umbrella Light" §40

  2. "Traditional Umbrella Light" §52

  3. "Sleek Umbrella Light" §50

  4. "Tropical Umbrella Light" §85

-Room Category: Outdoor > Outdoor Seating
-Function Category: Decor > Decor Misc

Compatibility:
-There shouldn't be any issues with these conflicting with any other mods.
-These are not default replacements, just clones.

-EA/Maxis
-TSR Workshop

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.

Excellent idea! Thank you, I won't have to waste time looking for space-hogging candles and table lights for bistro tables anymore!
