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.
UPDATE: Added Standalone version per public demand. 'Tis essentially the same banana as the original, except that, well, you know. Major props to Morphead (as I used his PA99S-LSAF-TV02 item as a base for it).
UPDATE 2: Finally got to fix that pesky sun shadow bug on the standalone package.

Whether have an eye for design or a love of fast-action sports, the 50-inch LG 50PK550 1080p Plasma HDTV handles both adeptly. With its Seamless Design and TruSlim Frame, it has looks to turn heads and its 600Hz refresh rate makes it perfect for fast action. Other features include a mega contrast ratio of 3,000,000:1, stereo speakers with 20 watts of power and Dolby Digital decoding, three HDMI ports, and the capability to play MP3 audio files and JPEG photo slideshows from a USB drive.

The item costs $1500 ingame, and only takes up a single recolourable channel.

It can be bought ingame as the "LG 50PK550 Plasma HDTV", which can be found in the Living Room > TVs section of the catalogue.

This mod was tested on v1.33.2. It should work on earlier builds, too, although this isn't guaranteed.

Wall Variant:
Verts: 226

Standalone:

Polys: 310

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.

That's the very reason why I decided to make that mod. It's also the same banana my family watches at home.

The odd thing is... My boyfriend and I bought this television not even three days ago from Best Buy.

It's my first HD television (we went with the 60", and every HD movie looks cheesy.)

Wonderful though. Downloading!

After numerous botched updates, the shadows on the standalone version are now fixed. For some reason I can't get to do BloomBase's tutorial without ending up with a shadow that's too small, so I had to resort to having them generated using TSRW. I'd like to know how to do it the hard way, though.
