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.
Hi everybody!

need more space to put your stuff?

you know Channel Trowler 27'' Deluxe TV? I made a new one with 12 empty slots available to put any small object

Cost § 550 in game, and is found in Electronics/miscellaneous

This TV has been tested whith all patches of the game.

-Work fine for me, but let me know if you run into any problems.

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.

This looks great! Thanks for sharing this! I'm going to try it out with the flat video game system in the bottom row. Hope that works!

Very nifty, yay for more slots, but why a new item? Why not a default replacement?

Any chance you could make a default replacement version? Having doubles in my catalog geeks me out.

Love the idea I've always hated putting the video game consoles right next to the TV...looks too cluttered for my obsessively neat sims :P

How about an OPTIONAL default replacement. That would be great...still, this is a good idea.

Thanks, does this still work with 1.63 / 1.67? Can't remember if cupboards need a Pets fix or not. I would love to use this. The cheap TV with a table underneath is so much easer to use when you have to build multiple similar rooms like for a jail or hospital.
