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 download is part of the Victorian London Creator Challenge
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Hi all,

My entry for this challenge is a pair of curtains called "Victoria":


Victorian curtains are certainly one of the most fascinating to me! They were very elaborate and often made of velvet or heavy fabric.

The first ones in the picture are the meshes (2 tiles and 1 tile models). I have done also seven recolours of each curtain.



I hope you will like them!


I wish good luck to everyone who upload a project for this challenge!

As usual, the excellent quality I've come to admire you for! Excellent meshing, and I love the way the curtain looks like it has real weight and sags!

I like much your curtains. I have just finished a living room on the topic of the contest with a recoloration of curtains which I had make previously. I had thought well of also remaking curtains for this set, but I concentrated plûtôt on the pieces of furniture. I made well because your curtains are really very beautiful and very victoriens. I would make a personal recoloration for me of it in order to coordinate them with my set. Thank you to have once more creates and downloaded for all these splendid curtains. Good luck for the contest.

I don't understand what happened for you but you just have to re-download the zip once again (don't use a special downloader just click on the icon against the zip you need!)

Sorry I can't take requests anymore!
And I will probably never convert my creations for TS2 to TS3.

Wow, they're amazing. The mesh looks realistic and the recolors are really victorian style :D!
I just saw that you also work with Blender. It's perhaps a bit confusing at the beginning but after having figured out the essential commands it's a great tool .

I agree with you, Blender is a fantastic software!

As I create the last lot for the Challenge, I keep coming back to NOT furnishing the residential lots. I just don't have enough "Victorian" items to pull it off. Then I saw these. I mean I REALLY looked at them. They are absolutely beautiful! And the added joy, your color choices totally compliment my walls in my residential Victorian lots.

I'm so looking forward to more Victorian objects: stoves, fridges, tea sets, fireplace t.v.s (ok I just threw that one in there)

Thanks for creating and sharing these wonderful curtains!

Quick, to the Downloads folder!

I can't even begin to articulate how beautifully gorgeous (redundant, I know) these curtains are. Look at the way they drape so heavily! Beautiful mesh, even more beautiful textures. These are definitely getting a ton of use in my game, thank you so much! :]
