Information (Click for more details):
This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
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 MTS2 - check the sidebar.
This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
I love mid-century style, and I was always disappointed with the unusual art-deco styling of the old-timey TV we got with The Sims 3, and all the custom retro-styled TVs I have seen for the game have been...lacking in style. So I converted one of my favourite items from the entire franchise, this here beautiful mid-century modern TV set.
This is just a little something I whipped up...an embarrassingly long time ago, I just never got around to uploading it. It's the Futur-Vu TV from The Sims 2: Pets, fully recolorable and available in two TS2 presets, with three channels and a deliciously baked multiplier map!
It costs §800 and can be found under Electronics/TVs. It's classed as a high-end set, so you'll receive all the channels that exist in-game, and it shouldn't be too prone to breaking.
LOD0: 1524 polygons
LOD1: 769 polygons
Maxis for the original mesh and textures and MTS for being fantastic hosts as ever.

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.
