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.
It's a BIG billboard with lights...

Its parents are one of the billboards from the neighbourhood decoration collection, grafted onto a cloned wooden street light. The original billboard object from the neighbourhood is close to 5 storeys tall and ten tiles wide..I thought that might be overdoing it a bit so I sized it down some. This one sits on a one tile footprint so you can add items under and around it. It's nearly 3 storeys tall and adds that certain lack of environmentaly friendly urban planning look to a lot..

The default poster is slightly fuzzy - I liked it because it is a Grilled Cheese Sandwich poster but it was a tiny tiny image I had to enlarge, so I have provided 3 recolours.

Contains:

billboard.OBJ

3 recolours:

QANTAS poster
UK Travel Poster
Vintage ad for meat

No pay sites. Please link back here if you re-use it elsewhere.

It can be found under Outdoors >>> Lights

**UPDATE 15 Mar 06**

Fixed it so the billboard itself is lit properly at night.
Refined the mesh a little and reduced the OBJ file size about 15%
Tested OfB safe

If you have Rowey's recolour, you will need the old mesh (DTbillboard.zip) as it is incompatible with the new one (but uses the same GUID, so the new one will overwrite the old if you have it already. I left the old one up here because I don't need people going to Rowey saying the recolour doesn't work :insane:

You should download one or the other but NOT both as only one will show up in the game.

Thank you
