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.

Hi
here's lighting set I've made for mountain cabins etc. Base game compatible, no expansions needed.
"Double Sconce - Right" is a master object, and is required.

15/11/2019:
Added optional Ceiling Lamp Mesh replacement with original BV light settings (red hues) - Bon Voyage required.

Set includes:

Mountain Style Ceiling Lamp - my remake of "Survival of the Fittest Fixture" that came with Bon Voyage.
Now it has two subsets (and lampshades that glow when lit).
Cost:240S
Buy Mode/Lighting/Hanging Lamps/

Mountain Style Double Sconces, left & right - 105S
Mountain Style Single Sconce - 104S
Buy Mode/Lighting/Wall Lamps/

Mountain Style Table Lamp - 93S
..and little extra:
Slim Antique Table Lamp - 195S
Lamp base takes textures and recolors from "Transport Urn" Sculpture (base game).
Buy Mode/Lighting/Table Lamps/

Ceiling lamp is pretty high poly - around 4000 polygons. Double sconce is 2000 poly.
Use these in moderation if you're running the game on old PC

Notice:
I've generated random GUIDs for my mesh files.
More info:

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

I actually have the original BV floor and table lamp in real life with a moose and a bear, but these will be great for creating more log type homes with variations of style and colors. Thank you so much for these. (:

Could you make a version that gives off the same light as the BV ceiling light?
The light it gives is a deeper orange (flame colored?) than other lights.

I just love them all...except that the light ranges from "none" to "faint". Wish there was a way to "turn up the fire"

Namaste... or "go"

I think I gave you the link to invisible lights once? There are only a few warm ligths in the game so I simply didn't have other options.
Wall lamps from this set use candelabra wall lamp settings, it's the brightest of all warm base game lights.
Do you use any lighting mods?
