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.
If you think having ghosts is funny, try playing a ghost stereo.

This is essentially just a clone of the Cheap Stereo from the game. It plays music and all that just like the original, but it shows substituting a different shader for the original. The mesh, while custom, is actually unedited, but the materials have been changed to use the "Ghost" shader rather than the "Phong".

This is a terribly easy mod to do, I just wanted everyone to be able to see that it can be done (using the new version of the ObjTool posted 8/27). I didn't even use MilkShape on the mesh, just the ObjTool and WordPad on the .mtlsrc files.

A List of shaders is described in the Wiki article on the MATD, see here.
