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 something I needed badly in my game: string lights with glow effect
(..and moderate polycount )

Flickering String Lights cost 45 S
the file includes two shades: plain gold and multicolor,
each in two animated variations: subtle flicker and crazy blink

Still String Lights cost 44 S
non-animated, four recolors included

Both can be found in Buy Mode/Lighting/Wall Lamps.
Note: the thumbnails seem almost empty, I didn't manage to replace it.

If you have Apartment Life, you can shift these and place on fences etc.

Merry Xmas and Happy New Year!

I've generated random GUIDs for these items.

As always, remember to check if new objects you put in your folders show up in the game.

Awesome creation. I have been looking forever for holiday lights that radiate their own light. Looks excellent in-game and for me it's a must have. Now I can create my "Eyes Wide Shut" homes Stanley Kubrick style.
