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.
Note from the creator
================
This upload was meant to be a remake of one of my previous uploads, The Novelty Lamp Collection which was made in my really early days as a modder, and also an experiment. I wanted to try and create a liquid-like animated mesh using animated textures and alpha maps. It was tedious and painstaking work but the results sure were fruitful.
================

This, what I'm assuming, is the first time MTS2 has had a fully 3D lava lamp object uploaded, and it feels great to do so!

This Sims2 Lava lamp object has a total of 15 options for lava colours and 20 options for base colours. That's a grand total of 300 possible combos! Guaranteed to fit almost any room or style.

I've also included a few unique base recolours for added fun.



Here is a shot of the lamp in action.


As said, the lamp contains the following 15 recolours for lava
-White
-Toxic
-Noir
-Green
-Move
-Blue
-Fire
-Lava
-Pink
-Lime
-PurpleRed
-Yellow
-Cyan
-Violet
-Rainbow

and the following 20 recolours for the base.
-Dark red
-Dark orange
-Dark yellow
-Dark green
-Dark cyan
-Dark blue
-Dark violet
-Dark pink
-Light red
-Light orange
-Light yellow
-Light green
-Light cyan
-Light blue
-Light violet
-Light pink
-Black
-Silver
-Zebra
-Leopard




Enjoy!

I would like to thank JWoods for his great tutorial on cell animation.

Totally! Why just yesterday I was at my best friend's house and we were reminiscing about our lava lamps! I might have to get one now!

An *animated* lava lamp! That's brilliant!! I'm with the others, every teen in my 'hood will want one. Thank you so much for sharing!

Edit: Just FYI, for those who are so inclined, I saved almost 14 MB of space on these by compressing all the files with jFade's Compressorizer.

I put this in my game - and it works as advertised - but its a tad big for some surfaces.... I think if it could be scaled a little smaller then its awesomeness would be enhanced - maybe 60% of current size. Its still very very cool though
