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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
EDIT 29/11/2009.
These objects became broken with the patch 1.6.6 and the expansion and caused the "blue lot syndrome". I have fixed them now so if you still want to use them with World Adventures, please re-download.


I decided to start learning how to mesh objects for the game. With no meshing experience at all, this plan was exciting and frightening at the same time. I wanted to start with just modifying simple objects a little, I thought that would be easy.
I was so wrong.
A lot of struggling with shadows, glitches, texturemapping and error messages followed. Starting over from step 0 and over again.
Several days (or rather weeks) later... I'm here with a few plants I dare to share, because I always think we need a LOT more variety in decorative objects.

My goal was to increase the number of plants that are placeable on tabletops, counters, nightstands and dressers. So, I pulled the hosta from the ceiling, re-planted the fern, and modified the orchid into a dracaena. Then created a recolor for each, thus this upload is 6 new plants.
All cost 40ยง and are found in Decorative/Plants, obviously.
They don't replace game objects and all the pots are recolorable as usual.



Polygon Counts:
Fern/Dracaena Long: 474 faces, 390 vertices
Hosta/Syngonium: 272 faces, 251 vertices
Dracaena Lime/tricolor: 456 faces, 491 vertices
