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 would be awesome if we could see functionality with "off the grid" lots.

Is it possible it'll play more music box notes (if it works like a regular stereo) if I install them?

Wow! That thing is big! Works well. Any chance we can add different kinds of music for it to play, please?

Default Music Box, Stereo
Hi, for us OTG players, would you make your music box off-the-grid? Just doesn't make sense that a music box requires electricity.

OTG Players are sadly in need of items that play music, such as a music box, a gramophone (the wind-up kind didn't use electricity), and portable radios (which were battery operated.)

I have your music pak and when my sims plays instruments (such as saxophone) I see notes but no sounds. Were they made that way or do I have glitch?
