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.
(Minor update May 3 2016: Fixed a small issue on the lowest LOD mesh which would have affected players playing on Low graphics, giving a texture flaw on one corner of the back of the lid when zoomed out. This was due to an unnoticed glitch introduced when reducing the poly count for that mesh. If you previously downloaded this and you're on Low graphics and/or have seen the flaw, please re-download, with my apologies!)
This is a funky little colourful piano made in the style of Medieval/Renaissance keyboard instruments (virginals). Less anachronistic for medieval sims than having to play a default grand piano, and also nice for modern-day antique collectors, folksy hippies, or fantasy characters. It's found in the Activities section in Buy Mode where the other pianos are found, and costs 800 simoelons.
It comes in four retextures as below, with background paintings taken from classic artwork ranging from the 1300s to the 1600s.
Can be used for medieval or Renaissance characters such as the below musical knight playing the particularly colourful Medieval Tapestry retexture in red tones. He plays knightly and sometimes daily too.
Also can be useful for nature-loving fae folk, especially the idyllic nature scene retexture:
Thanks for looking, hope you'll find this little piano useful.
Unzip the file and move the .package file to your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\Mods folder.
Horse sim is by me (TS3 mesh conversion) but not uploaded anywhere (not ready for prime time!).
Paintings used on the pianos are by Lorenzetti (1338), Anonymous tapestry (c1430), Grauwels (c1580), and ter Borch (c1655).
Piano meshed by me in Milkshape and Blender. Table and seat are modified base game items.
Packaged with Sims 4 Studio, outdoor shadow imported with TSRW.
