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.
No, not floorplans, floor-plants!
Is there still one corner in your room that looks empty and you're getting tired of 'tropical leaves of repose'? This set is for you then.
I've converted 3 garden plants from the Sims 2, the fan leaf palm, the oleander shrub, and the wild bamboo (which was my favorite).
All 3 cost 100§ and are in Decorative/Plants.
You can recolor the planters with the style tool.


Polygon Counts:
Oleander: 1146 faces, 757 vertices
Palm: 1100 faces, 717 vertices
Bamboo: 1081 faces, 877 vertices

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.

OMG... I've always loved the bamboo in Sims2. Thank you SO much for this. Too bad that I won't be able to play Sims3 for a while (I'll be on holiday in November) but I'm very much looking forward testing those plants in December. With so many beautiful plants (made by you) it's a MUST to create more new residential and/or community lots. Ahhh... so many things to do ... I wish days were at least 48hours long (not only 24h) ...

Thank you!!!

These look great! I love how you made the pots so that they can be right next to each other, making one long "pot" to house the bamboo. (thumbs up)
