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.
This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This is my second pack after creating the succesfully easter pack, i hope you like this as much or even better.
You can get different stuff on the post below, I will not post the music here but you can get it here: http://www.simfantastic2.com/summerlife/download.htm
Info on my site:
What is this Summer Life thing?

-The Sims 2 Summer Life Pack by Simfantastic 2 is free for people who own the Sims 2. No matter what Sims 2 game you have it will work with it. If you have all of the expansion packs, 2, 1, 3, none, or what ever number this FREE add-on will work. Yes that is right all of this stuff is completely 100% free! You are one click away from downloading summer themed items!

What do I get if I download the Summer Life pack?

-The Sims 2 Summer Life includes a lot of content including, music, objects, clothes, walls, floors, and collections. There are no new interactions though. This is quite some custom content since it is like a bit smaller stuff pack, but it is unofficial. The pack includes over 320 things to dazzle on and if you count the re-colors it has over 475 new things! You get so much customization here. (Including walls and floors) The pack has 41 new objects, 48 new clothes, 106 new floors, 129 new walls, 23 new songs, and 156 re-colors of the new objects!

How long did this take to make and can I download more stuff like this?

- First I thought of an Idea of making my own pack for the community to download in December of 2005, and I wanted people to celebrate for the Easter Season, which is why I started on that date to create The Sims 2 Easter Pack, which was a wonderful success. So that is available for you to download also. That took three months to make and this Summer Life Pack took a bit lower than 4 months. I now spend three to four months on my packs and it is a lot of work, and it sometimes takes me away from updating my regular site, but I like the way it is once the pack is finished! Note I am just 14 so I still did have school so between homework and school I had to squeeze all of this in also to meet a deadline, as you can see it was successful! I hope and think more people will download this than the Easter pack since Easter is based on a certain holiday that not everyone celebrates, but summer is something almost any one can relate to. I am most likely going to make more packs in the future but I am not quite sure what theme should be next. I was thinking Halloween but I don't want to start a new pack quite yet and I wouldn't have 3 months to work on it. So I might make a Mini-Pack for Halloween and then start a winter one, you never know what might happen.

Just one more thing before I think I can download? Are you sure this is free?

Yes once again this is all free! No need to worry about taking a cent out of your pocket. Although this is free I would really be appreciated for donations. I haven't gotten one since I put the donation button on my site, but it is ok, I am not bragging. I am just trying to save up a little money to help the site stay free so I can make stuff like this. I spend months on my stuff and the only thing I get is a bill for my website. So I basically spend all this time for nothing in return, but some fun, which is why I really love feedback on the pack, and when other sites talk about it. So if you want you can donate here
The button is also on all of the object pages If you do donate thank you very much!

What If I have problems?

This pack has been tested and everything seems to be alright (Except the bed where there are no joints assigned to it so the Sims just sleep through the cover, but that is no big deal unless you are a sales person for beds and mattresses and don't like it) You can contact me here or here and can find these same links on the bottom of this site on every page. I will try to assist you in your help as fast as possible but do not always promise a reply. If you are Maxis or EA Games I'll just run around in circles and read your email about 5,000 times and then reply faster than a cheetah! Just kidding

Can I send this pack to my friends and at other places online?

This can be a problem since I don't want any HOT LINKING! I am not a happy camper when people do this. Just simply send a link to this site but not the file directly. If you want to tell others once again just send a link to this site. For the Easter pack the site was down for 2 days because of High Bandwidth. Some of it was because of Hot linking, but if this pack is successful the site may be down for more , about the same, or less than that. So please avoid downloading the pack more than once! Thank you and have a wonderful time with the pack
Enjoy!
Here are the floors:

Thank you from the deep of my hearth. I heard of your Summer Pack reading the news on Snooty Sims; when jumped in your site I was impressed by this pack and the Ester one too. You're going well, and deserve lot of donations.
I knew that Fresh is a young prodigy (eheh, it's true) and now you're in the list too. Well done. Thank you forever, kiss and ciao.
