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.

Hello everyone,

Longtime ago, I uploaded a 2-story version of this set, but a lot of people asked me to upload it in it original version from the Sims 2 : in a 1-story version. So, it is done .

This set contains 6 objects :
  • The basic column
  • The "Cross" part
  • The "End" part
  • The "Repeat" part
  • The "Right" part
  • The "T" part

Each object is located in the columns section, costs §170 and has 2 channels.

13th june 2016 EDIT : When you zoomed out, these arched columns became regular. This is now fixed.

Have fun ,

Jim.

Polygon Counts:
Column:553
Cross: 1795
End: 977
Repeat: 1217
Right: 1243
T: 1493

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.

I noticed that these columns only keep their shape when looking at close range. But once I zoom out a bit, they each revert back to a standard-looking column, making them lose the portion that creates the arch effect. Your 2-story columns don't seem to have this issue, and keep their shape regardless of how close/far the camera is. I'd love it if these columns could retain their shape, and then I could use both sets of columns in my Hogwarts lot.

This is now fixed. Sorry for the inconvenience.
