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.


The Heavy Lifter - Weight Rack is just what your workout rooms or local gyms need to add that extra bit of edge. With a total of 245 lbs of weights, you'll be ripped & toned in no time at all!

This weight rack is a 1 tile decor object that has 1 recolorable part which is the frame itself. The weights themselves are not recolorable...Sorry =P

For 250 Simoleans you can add more weight than you can handle to your gym on almost any budget!

If you experience any trouble with the color style you choose you may need to open CAS and alter the color just a tad and save it just to refresh the texture. This shouldn't happen...but just in case

If you enjoy this brand new object, slap that "Thank" button at the bottom left of your screen

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.

A bit too low poly, and it shows. But from afar, it looks totally amazing!

Purposely...I didnt want a huge poly for such a simple item. Specially since I had initially planned to place multiple racks in a gym/room to make it realistic.

Thanks for the compliment though
