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.
I fixed the recolor problem. Please redownload the trees package. I also moved some of the flowers which I accidently packed into the tree file to the right file.

I have worked for several weeks on updating all of my plants for Seasons. I also made some new recolors.
Sorry that I couldn´t show all plants on the screenshots but I have screens of all meshes and the newest recolors. Almost all of the screenshots are animated gifs showing the different Season states so it´s worth taking a closer look at them.

The shrubs are all modified so as not to overgrow.

Biggest thanks to Echo for her help with the trees.
If you want to make your own Seasons plants, check out her tutorial (link below in the additional credits box) or...
I also made some templates to minimize the work for other creators, plus a tutorial on how to create Season flowers, plus a tutorial on how to recolor custom Seasons plants. All of these can be found in the Create section at my site: http://sim2me.de

Brilliant! I always thought it looked odd mixing pre and post seasons plants, but now I won't have to! :D

Echo, I´m very honoured to hear that you´ll use my plants.

tizerist: yes, I can. They weren´t snow covered, didn´t drop leaves for winter, didn´t colour change for fall, the flowers didn´t change appearance when they wen´t dormant. That´s all what was wrong, I believe...

Yes, with the difference that Maxis´ SPs never have EP functions.

As I don`t have Seasons yet, I`m only curious, but I`m kinda confused: Do these replace Maxis plants, or do they replace earlier CC plants? I`m with CatOfEvilGenious: It`d be cool for Maxis plants to be Seasonized, but i`d rather not have the Maxis bushes lose the need for trimming.

These do replace all of my earlier CC plants. And the Maxis bushes will not lose the need of trimming, it´s only the CC bushes which do not need trimming.

I just found this lovely gem. Thanks so much for your efforts. I have several CC plants and trees from other creators but none of them have updated them for seasons. I'm so happy and amazed that you did this. Much appreciation and keep up the excellent work!
#41 Old 5th Feb 2009 at 4:18 AM
Ok, I`ve got Seasons installed now, and I`m downloading your plants as I type. Thanks.

Thanks to you all.

AyameS: That's a pity. I even posted a tutorial and templates helping creators to update their plants. But it's a lot of work, so no one bothered to do it.

Thank you -so- much! I always thought that Sims 2 lacked in the way of good plants, and I'm never satisfied with other custom plants that don't change with the season! Thank you!!
