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.
Here's a big old funky typewriter for your anachronistic sims. It functions as a computer, cloned from the cheapo How Low Can You Go computer and using its animations and skillbuilding. It's found in the Electronics section in Buy Mode, with the computers, and costs a measly 300 simoleons.

It comes in eight worn-looking vintage-style colours. Below are Dark slate grey, Dull light blue, and Maroon:



And below, Olive, Brown, Dark Blue, Green, and Purple.



Useful for 1950s Noir-type characters such as hardbitten Private Eyes typing up the day's notes:



And their Gal Fridays:



A note regarding desks: As TS4 comes with desks of very differing shapes and sizes, this object may not sit well on some of them, such as overhanging in front or clipping into shelves in back. So it's best to stick to the most standard sized and shaped desks.

Thanks for looking, hope you'll find this useful for your old-school simmies.


INSTALLATION:
Unzip the zip file and move the .package file to your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\Mods folder.


Polygon Counts:
1577 polys

Additional Credits:
Made with Sims 4 Studio. Meshed by me in Milkshape and Blender.
