This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
What about some tavern signs for your medieval and Harry Potter neighbourhoods? All those signs that came with Late Night are modern looking and not very appropriate for medieval or even wizarding lots.
Now you have a choice! This is acctually a painting with 6 different designs visible from both sides, so it can be used as a sign (sort of) with „moveobjects on“. The writings are in simlish and the frame is recolorable.

Signs:
1. a tankard – a simple sign for any medieval tavern
2. The Leaky Cauldron (a pub from Harry Potter series)
3. The Three Broomsticks (Hogsmeade tavern from Harry Potter)
4. Hog´s Head (an infamous inn from Harry Potter too)
5. Green Wywern (this should have been The Green Dragon fom Lord of the Rings but I liked the wywern better )
6. The Prancing Pony (an inn from The Lord of the Rings)



Found in Buy mode/Sort by Function/Decor/Wall Art.
Base Game compatible.
Price: 50
Polygon Count: the same as EA original mesh

Additional Credits:
Creators of S3PE and S3OC SIMale for the Simlish Font
cmomoney and orangemittens for painting tutorials
the original pony image is by Hill from Wikimedia Commons

Style: Antique
Room: Dining
Maxis Flags: Not Applicable

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.

No, sorry, I don´t have Sims 2. You could try asking some Sims 2 creator to convert these.
