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.
Hey everyone! I'm back with a new H&B item! I've been working on my final exams for too long, but i'm finally free! I got back to my 3D modeling routine and modding since a bit of a break. I've whipped out a bunch of items i'm sure you're going to love! If you follow me on Tumblr, you might have seen this hint to the new major release. I am encountering a problem with the Geometry States of that item but i'm seeking help on how to fix that, so stay tuned!

Okay okay! Here's the new H&B Thermostat! It features a lot of cool stuff. First and foremost, I designed a unique UI for the big display that it comes with. The UI color background reflects the temperature chosen for a quick glance to what the current setting is, but if you zoom in, you'll see icons and buttons and all of that jazz. That is DEFINITELY what i spent the most time on doing.

4x Base Textures, 256 x 128 Pixels;
2x Temperature Display Textures, 256 x 128 Pixels.

Thumbnails are custom and can be viewed in the post images or here:

It costs 300 Simoleons.

Polygon Counts:
LOD0, LOD1, Shadow LOD0, ShadowLOD1: 116 Polygons

Additional Credits:
Blender - 3D modeling;
Paint.NET - Majority of texturing;
Photoshop - Normal Map;
Sims4Studio - Package creation;

Your creations are some of the most detailed, highest quality items I've ever downloaded for the Sims4. Thank you for putting so much time and effort into these items for all of us to enjoy. These are beautiful and I would totally have these in my real home if I could! PLEASE keep up the fantastic work! Thank you!

Sorry for my bad english.

After the patch for thermostats, all of my bills are $1 with this installed. Any way to fix it?

I find this quite weird, since the tuning this thermostat has is the exact same of the EA one. You could consider this as a re-skin of the EA one. I'd look further into your mods cause as of right now i haven't had this problem you've described in my game with this object

Does this Thermostat automatically adjust the temperature like LittleMsSams "Automatic Thermostats"? Or would it work in conjunction with it?
