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.
This download is part of the Victorian London Creator Challenge
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

a steampunky upload for you guys,
these are vaguely based on a pic that represented Verne's Nautilus submarine, from Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea.

The table lamp and wall lamp come default in brass and cherry wood finishes.
They both have recolours for bronze metal and a lighter wood.

They both give off an eerie green light, which is oh so cute in creepy houses.

To get that glow, i had to clone the Wall Lamp from a Nightlife lamp, so you'll need that EP to get the right light reflection.
Table lamp should work for everyone.

And they're animated to look sort of flickery, but in a steampunk way (don't ask).
Please note that gifs are only an indication, and don't really do them justice.

have fun with them!

Oooh! I love them, I love them, I love them! And 20,000 Leagues was one of my Verne favourites when I was younger. Still is, for that matter.

Amazing creation, Lethe, as always. The pulsing green light is fascinating me, and the retro look is great; these lamps can give a particular touch to any kind of style. Mr Verne and capt Nemo would be very proud and happy! Thank you and good luck for this contest ...

Victorian neighborhood and test out all the STUFF I've been downloading. I have a steampunky building in the back of my Imperial Institute that these would be perfect for. Thank you for sharing this fabulous set.

Oy! Problem!
...yeah, sorry to be ''that guy'' but the lights don't show up in my game right. I keep getting these bright green balls where the glass globes should be. I have NightLife and Scriptorum, so i don't know what wrong...
any suggestions?
