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 28/11/2009.
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.

Hi peeps, it's me again... with more plants...
Amjoie pointed out that there is a serious shortage of bonsai plants in the Sims 3. She also provided me with raw material
So I made these four pots, two of them are actual indoor bonsais from the Sims 2, the other two are outdoor plants that I shrank to a tabletop size (they're also from the Sims 2). The leftmost one in the pics looks a bit weird floaty because I had to reduce the polygons that I thought were too many. I didn't reduce the others, maybe I should have.. The "Potted Dragon" got a new texture because the original was way too small. So here they are, in customizable planters, ready for your asian decorating needs.
Plants category, each cost 90§.

Polygon Counts:
Bonsai Bon Voyage: 948 faces, 953 vertices
Bonsai white flower: 1218 faces, 1001 vertices
Bonsai Potted Dragon: 1752 faces, 1399 vertices
Bonsai cypress: 2834 faces, 1496 vertices

Additional Credits:
The Object Tool, S3OC, S3PE, SimPE, The Sims 2.
Thanks to Amjoie for the files!

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Wow!These look better than I even imagined they would, and I was dreaming about some really pretty trees, when I sent you the fixins. Thank you so much for all your hard work! Now we can really look forward to the Asian part of the first expansion. :D

Oh, and thank you for the link back to my page. That's my TS2 stuff. My TS3 stuff is at Custom Sims 3. I've done about 140 paintings/tapestries/double-frame Victorian photos in Jynx's new meshes for end tables or mantles; also, gold hardware for toilet paper rolls, recolored children's toys/oven, etc, etc. It's in the Buy and Build section.

I hope you can find something pretty there, that will make your game more pleasurable, because you sure have given me pleasure in my game, with all your great clutter and plants!! :D
