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.
*Updates*

(2/06/10) - Repackaged all files to fix an issue some people were having with the textures. Please re-download.
(2/09/10) - Changed mouse interaction on colored glass to match that of the others.
(2/11/10) - Compressed textures to result in much smaller file sizes.
(2/14/10) - Copied descriptions to all languages.


Didn’t you just love those little knick knacks sims brought home from vacation in Bon Voyage? I don’t know about you, but they were some of my very favorite items to decorate with. Well, I had seen some of them converted before, but I was missing all the original names and descriptions, so I thought I would just make the whole set myself.

All of these have custom shadows, custom environment scores, nicely-centered auto-generated thumbnails, and can be placed on any surface. I kept the price the same as the originals ($75), with the exception of the beach collectables, which were listed as a whopping $430, so I changed them to $75 as well. They are not recolorable, since the originals weren’t, and I didn’t see much need to change the style of these, anyway. You can find them in-game under function sort: decor->miscellaneous decor, or room sort: dining room->miscellaneous decor. (Beach collectables can also be found in bathroom->accents.)



This collection includes all 10 of the Bon Voyage vacation souvenirs and beach collectables, including: Pagoda by Oh the Memories, Doll by Oh the Memories, Little Chest of Booty, Private Island Figurine, Bit o’ Vug, Lumberjack’s Pride, Starfish, Colored Glass, Clam, and Conch.

Well, that's it, everyone! Enjoy the goodies, and please keep an eye out for more conversions by me later on.

What’s next on my list? ...OFB Craftables!

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.

Great, I really missed that bowl of glass or stones or whatever and shells, although I do wish that they were re-colourable because I'm all "matchy matchy" like that. ;-)

YAAAYYY!!! You read my mind! Thank you so much!
I was thinking the same as Paige...Can they be made recolorable? That would be awesome, but if it's not possible I still LOVE you for doing this

It is possible, but it's lot more extra work, and some of the detail would inevitably get lost in the process. Since these were so small and pretty much had universal color schemes anyway, I opted for the simpler route. I am looking into making my next set recolorable, however.

Nice! I've been waiting for someone to convert the bowl of sea glass. I can't wait for the OFB craftables. I miss having the toy and flower craft stations around to decorate my sims' houses.

Any chance you could convert the deco things from TSS like the Barbies, jewelry boxes, perfume bottles, and stuffed animals? I know they weren't separate objects, but people were able to liberate them from the vanity, shelves, etc. to make them clutter for TS2 and I'd love to have them again.

Yes, she did, as I mentioned in my original post. But her set didn't have the original prices and descriptions, nor was it the complete set (she left out the pirate chest, colored glass, clam, and conch). There are various other differences as well, such as catalog thumbnails, environment score, and object function.

Yeah, I see your point, that's ok, I'm still really enjoying them in my game

YAY!! Thanks a bunch! I can't wait to see what your next set will be!

Have you modified the drop shadow meshes on these items so that they're shaped like the objects and not like the original object they were cloned from?

Were these cloned from the small candle? It sounds like they were.
If so, did you modify the position of the root joint in the mesh?

If you didn't change the root joint, then would you mind if I used some of these meshes for the sectionals of the next version of my Chaos Modder?

Candles are one of the few objects in the game I can make physically stackable without editing their rigging, so I'd like to have some objects cloned from them to use as my sectionals.

What other objects have you cloned from the small candle, if any?

Yes, these all have custom drop shadow meshes with new UV mapping so the shadows fit the new objects as best as possible.

I didn't clone from the candle, though, or modify the root joint. These were all cloned from either the notepad w/ pens or the daffodil vase, depending on the number of mesh groups involved.
