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.

4-11-13 Fixed the basegame telescopes. Sims were able to look through the telescopes during the day but the stargaze option at night was causing a jump bug. I also fixed the lens on the Morrigan's Star Gazer (Outdoor Living) for both versions, it wasn't assigned to a joint so didn't move with the telescope properly. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Sims 3 Telescopes

Five telescopes converted from the Sims 3 store and one from the Outdoor Living Stuff pack. In order from left to right:
  • North Star Seeker (Buccaneer's Bounty)
  • Safari Living: Vuvuzela Telescope (Safari Living)
  • Futureshock Loft- Galactic Gaze 5000 (Futureshock Loft)
  • Griffons Telescope (Hollywood Regency)
  • Morrigan's Star Gazer (Outdoor Living)
  • Atomic Azure Skies Telescope (Atomic Age)

Catalog Sort:
Hobbies / Knowledge $550
These were all cloned from the cheap telescope.

These are all the Sims 3 telescopes that I'm aware of with the exception of the steampunk telescope, Galileo's Observer, which has already been converted by Eva and is available at GoS.

Terms of Use:
There are none. Enjoy.

Additional Credits:
SimPE, AGS, s3pe, s3oc, Gimp 2.8, Milkshape, and EA for the meshes and textures. I'd also like to thank the TS3 to TS2 Conversion Database, I've been on a conversion kick lately (it's a sickness I swear!) and I use their site all the time. Its a great resource.
