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.
Grapefruit moron sausage, simmers.

Today, I give you an OHP and a screen to go with it, for all your office/meeting room/university/training centre needs. I was building a townhall and thought the meeting room was a bit empty. When I found out the only OHP available in the whole Sims community appeared to be a pay item, I thought "Fine. I'll make a free one". Then I added a screen so that you could pretend to be projecting slides on it, and with the cell animation tutorial, I made it so that the slide would change every few seconds (between a selection of 4 graphs and charts).
If you want to get the best lighting effect for this, place three of Ailias' modern round lamps (the flat model, not the spheric one) behind the screen using move_objects. Then turn all the room's lights on, and manually turn off every lamp that's neither the OHP, nor the ones at the back of the screen (why not just turn those on then? Because they're hard to reach individually, that's why!).
Note that the OHP's bulb is actually inside the big cubic part, which makes it more realistic.

Feel free to recolour and upload recolours anywhere, as I'll be the first to admit that my textures suck. Please, do not reupload the mesh anywhere though. Link to this upload instead.
